killing Trayvon - Page 303

These last 12 months or so have to be the single largest vindication of the far right wing of the republican party in recent history.

Barbara Arnwine, president and executive director the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law – who earlier in the day joined calls for federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman, said that later in the afternoon, she joined a U.S. Department of Justice conference call to discuss the prospects.

“They were calling on us to actively refer anyone who had any information,” that might build a case against Zimmerman for either a civil rights violation or a hate crime, Arnwine said. “They said they would very aggressively investigate this case.”

Arnwine said the call was convened at about 3:30 p.m. by Tom Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice, and included representatives from the FBI, and several federal prosecutors, she said. DOJ officials also said they would open a public email address so people could send in tips on the case.

That email address, which is now in operation, is Sanford.florida@usdoj.gov.

In addition to Arnwine’s group, Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund; Laura Murphy, Washington Chapter head of the ACLU; and several national, Florida and Sanford-based “human relations” groups participated, Arnwine said.

I don't know if I would go that far, but I do find it disconcerting that every time the media runs with its typical left wing, foaming at the mouth garbage, its defenders blame it on sensationalism and the race for advertising dollars as if anybody believes that as an explanation for the race baiting.

Yes, I now wish Sarah Palin was President.

More like a vindication of those who really despise the left's racial politics and its claim to be the champion of civil liberties and justice. But yeah.

I am not Trayvon Martin because I am a 23 year old mixed, light-skinned, male who has only been openly racial profiled once in his life. I wear clothes that cost more than some people make in a month because they are my armor. They protect me from the experience I had when I was 10 years old. Growing up with an African-American father and a white British mother who both loved with open arms anyone my brothers and I brought to their home i learned never to judge people on their appearance but on their character. I have never been one to wear a normal hoody mine tend to have the ability to hide my whole face if I chose too. The fact that 17 year old boy was basically gunned down by an “up-standing" citizen who was told directly not to stalk the adolescent by the 9-1-1 dispatcher saddens me to no end. A man who used an outdated law incorrectly and the same law that Marissa Alexander and Cece McDonald should have been protected by is an outrage. In addition to taking the life of the Martin boy Zimmerman is now filing suit against his parents because his own paranoia forced him to move from his home.
in addition to the case, the hatred sported towards this dead teenager sickens me to no end. Like the racial slurs thrown about by privileged ignorant americans sitting behinds screens for protection when Obama won the election a second time. So too has Trayvon been beaten by these unsympathetic cretins. These people where not born this way. Older generations created these monsters disguised as humans. Because of their mind-sets and teachings wars are started, innocent people are killed, and our continents remain divided not by seas but by a lack of faith in others who are not the same as us. Once it is realized that we keep repeating history maybe someday we will learn.
I am not Trayvon Martin but I believe that you with the voices of so many will have a form of justice very soon.

I hate to say this but he is either going to kill himself or end up dead. I cannot even fathom the pressure....
post #4538 of 6250
Did that guy say Zimmerman filed suit against Trayvon's parents?
post #4539 of 6250
So let me get this straight. Zimmerman found not guilty in a court of law. The fed doesn't like that so now they are going vigilante.

The court case was bizarre but this is so far out there it borders on insanity.

So apparently the country's top lawyer thinks this was a SYG case?

He did make a point to say "separate and distinct from the recent case", but yeah, it's pretty irresponsible to use this case as a segue into an attack on SYG.

My IT department at work can have an email up and running 10 minutes after they get an email request from HR for a new employee...

And yeah, this "tip" line is fucking disgusting.

I was going to ask the same thing.

Agreed. From what I'm reading elsewhere I think he will have attempts on his life made. Apparently a portion of the Trayvon crowd feel SYG laws allow him to be shot on sight as he has killed an unarmed child previously therefore his mere presence allows SYG to be invoked. If enough people say this enough times it will be internalized by some.

That tumblr website is horrible. Using the death of a teenager to humblebrag should be a capital offense. The fact these posts seem cathartic and meaningful to the posters really makes me want to puke.

Its a witch hunt of an innocent man by the federal government.

My wife came downstairs this morning to find me stalking a wayward fly with a rolled-up magazine...I said "I'm about to get Zimmerman on this mofo...they always get away!"

She was not amused.
