FBI Report: Zimmerman Not ‘Racist’, Did Have ‘Hero Complex’

Posted by on Jul 15, 2013 at 10:17 am

It’s going to be tough for Obama’s so-called Justice Department to overcome this hurdle as they try to railroad George Zimmerman with civil rights charges.

The Justice Department has responded to appeals to probe whether George Zimmerman committed any civil rights violations in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin — but previously filed FBI documents are already challenging the narrative that the shooting was racially motivated.

Sanford police detective Chris Serino told FBI agents last year that after examining the case, it appeared Zimmerman was suspicious of Martin because of his “attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community.”

According to the document, Serino considered Zimmerman as having “a little hero complex, but not as a racist.”

Serino told the FBI that there had been several burglaries in the area, and that gang members in the community “typically dressed in black and wore hoodies.”

“When Zimmerman saw Martin in a hoody, Zimmerman took it upon himself to view Martin as acting suspicious,” Serino said, while describing Zimmerman as “overzealous.” The FBI document was posted on the Smoking Gun website.

    I dunno if I’ll even accept “overzealous.” I think a police officer in the same position would have observed and would have wanted to know what was up.
    There’s such a thing as overzealous. I’m worried about applying that term to responsible citizens who want to keep their neighbors safe.

    I am wondering if the DOJ folks broke the law when they went down to Sanford and incited the people to protest from what the e-mails and videos uncovered by Judicial Watch revealed. I assume this was done after the leader said “If he had a son, he would look like Trayvon” like the IRS started targeting people after Obama made equally disturbing comments.
