#1 How Long Before Holder Brings Zimmerman Up On Civil Rights Charges?07-14-2013, 12:51 AM
Just what the title says. I say within a matter of weeks. Obama isn't one who takes getting egg on his face lightly. Look for Zimmerman to be unpersoned.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

No way in heck will they bring charges. Not on a weak case such as thisWe're from Philadelphia, We Fight- Chip Kelly

An offensive move such as bringing charges against those in the federal government who slandered and brought harm on him might be a good course of action before they have a chance to do anything to him.Pffffffffffffffffffffff! Buh Bye Big Ears

He won't. Take off the jaded glasses NJ. The jury didn't find him guilty just to forestall riots. A couple hours after the verdict has been made public, there still hasn't been reports of any violence. There will not be any charges on civil rights violations.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

I can't believe this bitch on msnbc with the Bette Davis eyes (don't know her name). "Tonight 12 year olds will be crawling in bed with their parents." What the fuck? To listen to a lot of these people they didn't watch the trial or read about it. They are still spouting the same garbage. Still referring to Trayvon as a "little boy" with fucking Skittles.
They said that this isn't over. That Benjamin Crump is going to file a civil suit. I thought he already collected from the HOA. They said, that the evil Zimmerman can be "forced to testify" in the civil suit. Really? How about he just stipulates to all their claims, gets a 12 million dollar judgement against himself, and then runs right down to the bankruptcy court? Ha!
I am so sick of these assholes trying to exploit this case. I want to see Rick Scott, Angela Corey, de la Rionda, the other prosecutor, Al Sharpton and Lawrence O'Donnell all unemployed.

FL law prohibits it.
Chapter 776: JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE
776.032 Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.
(1) A person who uses force as permitted in s. 776.012, s. 776.013, or s. 776.031 is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force, unless the person against whom force was used is a law enforcement officer, as defined in s. 943.10(14), who was acting in the performance of his or her official duties and the officer identified himself or herself in accordance with any applicable law or the person using force knew or reasonably should have known that the person was a law enforcement officer. As used in this subsection, the term “criminal prosecution” includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.
(2) A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force as described in subsection (1), but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.
(3) The court shall award reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant is immune from prosecution as provided in subsection (1).

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

I rather doubt that Holder and the Obama Justice Department will twitch here. It would be so astoundingly politically stupid that there aren't instruments to measure it.
BUT, these fools are hardly above stupidity, as we've all seen. I think that if they are going to try to pursue charges, they'll do it relatively quickly. I think that they'll have a hard time pulling this off since the FBI has already issued an extensive ruling saying that there were no civil rights violations involved here.
If they do, though, I think that they're in for protests that they've never counted on before.Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
