    Your tax dollars at work....thanks to Eric Holder.

    From Judicial Watch


    Judicial Watch, Inc. on April 24, 2012 launched an investigation into the Trayvon Martin case based on reports that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) had sent a secret team of “peacekeepers” to Sanflord, Florida, where Martin was shot on February 26, 2012 after wandering in a gated community after dark. George Zimmerman, a resident of the community and its neighborhood watch captain, is currently on trial for Martin’s death though he maintains he acted in self-defense.

    Records obtained by Judicial Watch in response to local, state and federal public records requests show that the so-called peacekeepers are part of a large and growing division within DOJ called the Community Relations Service (CRS). Though CRS purports to spot and quell racial tensions nationwide before they arise, the documents obtained by Judicial Watch show the group actively worked to foment unrest, spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on travel and hotel rooms to train protestors throughout Florida. The peacekeepers also met with officials of the Republican National Convention, scheduled for several months later in Tampa, to warn them to expect protests in connection with Martin’s death.

    CRS employee spent $1,142.84 to travel to Sanford, Florida from March 25-28, 2012 “to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies”;

    CRS employee spent $751.60 to travel to Sanford, Florida from March 30-April 1, 2012 “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31”;

    CRS employee spent $1,307.40 to travel to Sanford, Florida from April 3-12, 2012 “to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford”;

    CRS employee spent $672.24 to travel to Tampa, Florida from April 18-20, 2012 “to meet with RNC official related to possible protests and demonstrations during the RNC”

    In response to a Florida Sunshine Law request to the City of Sanford, Judicial Watch also obtained an audio recording of a “community meeting” held at Second Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Sanford on April 19, 2012. The meeting, which opens with a gospel hymn and organ music, is reported to have led to the official ouster of Sanford’s Police Chief Bill Lee. A week earlier, a group calling themselves the “Dream Defenders” had barricaded the entrance to the police department demanding he be fired for failing to file murder charges against Zimmerman. The church meeting produced a nine-point plan, the main demand being the firing of Chief Lee.

    You have to wonder if Zimmerman is acquitted whether the Fed will try to pin something on him.

    I think it's highly likely. This poor man. He could be any of us that had the misfortune to run into a thug with a postmortem PR campaign and greedy parents.


    Here's Breitbart on the DOJ link:

    Docs: DOJ Provided Support for Trayvon Rallies


    On Wednesday, Judicial Watch announced that the Department of Justice had turned over documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act request showing that the Community Relations Service (CRS), a small division of the DOJ, was sent to Sanford, Florida after the Trayvon Martin shooting to help manage rallies and protests.

    In April 2013, Breitbart News' Lee Stranahan first reportedthe role of the CRS in Sanford.

    The new documents show that from March 25 through April 12, 2012, the CRS spent thousands of dollars helping organize and “work” marches and demonstrations regarding Trayvon Martin. Tasks included:

    Working “marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain”;
    Providing “support for protest deployment in Florida”;
    Providing “technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31”;
    Providing “technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford.”

    In April, the CRS reportedly “set up a meeting between the local NAACP and elected officials that led to the temporary resignation of police chief Bill Lee according to Turner Clayton, Seminole County chapter president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.”

    Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton commented, “These documents detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman. My guess is that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government employees to help organize racially-charged demonstrations.”

    Don't forget Obama doesn't let the law, limitations of his office or honor ever stand in his way when he wants something.

    That's exactly what Judicial Watch is uncovering. Holder's fingerprints are all over this case. Interesting, since Trayvon and his daddy Tracy were actually texting to each other about buying guns. Maybe one of those firearms that went fast and furiously across the border and returned?

    Not to keep sounding like a broken record but this trial is all about social justice, nothing more. Zimmerman is being used as a scapegoat for supposed centuries of injustices against blacks.

    It's not about social justice. It's about the payoff the major players (including Weird Al Sharpton) are going to get, since Zimmerman was arrested and tried. The civil suits will begin after the trial and the shakedown will begin.

    That, and the demonization of anyone who owns a gun, uses it defensively or otherwise doesn't kowtow to the party line.

    Moral outrage and righteous indignation at high volume soon to begin. Al and Jesse are each practicing their heartfelt and spontaneous deliveries, no doubt.
    After a 2-4 minute low-key intro where they repeat what everyone has already heard, seamlessly they'll transition to the classic finger pointed toward the sky in anguish/anger. But, knowing when to go into the voice cracking./tearing up phase is vital. Get that timing right and the "strengthened through solidarity" climax will flow like wine.

    I don't know what they want. But, it's nothing resembling what MLK wished for. The more unrest, blame, outrage and maybe violence the public is surrounded with, the easier to sell the big social changes????
