‘Justice for Trayvon’: Obama DOJ Member Urged Action Against Zimmerman

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 at 2:05 pm

George Zimmerman will be a very wealthy man when his lawsuits against NBC News, CNN and the Obama Justice Department pay off.

The legal watchdog Judicial Watch released an audio recording Thursday of a Department of Justice staffer urging Sanford, Fla., city officials and the minority advocacy group Dream Defenders to seek justice for Trayvon Martin, because “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.”

“CRS is an arm of the department that we call the Peacemakers,” Thomas Battles, regional director of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, said at a meeting at the Shiloh Church on April 19, 2012. “We work with communities where there is real or perceived racial tensions.”


Mr. Battles then introduced a member of the Dream Defenders.

“When Trayvon happened, for many of us, it was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back,” the man said. “We had grown up in a state and environment where race is a way of life … We’re not from Sanford, but what Sanford represented to us was the very real problems going around this state and this country. We wanted to figure out how could we stand in solidarity, and how could we make this about not just justice for Trayvon, but using this moment and using the opportunity to honor his memory, to honor his spirit by working to bring down the various structures and the various systems that allow something like this to happen.”

You can almost guarantee Obama’s so-called Justice Department will file a civil rights case against Zimmerman when he’s acquitted.

    Not that I’m surprised. The entire DOJ if filled with assholes like this and can get away with such bullshit. Hell, they get raises from it.

    The bloodshed that erupts in America’s cities after the verdict — REGARDLESS OF WHAT THAT VERDICT IS — will be on the hands of this President.

    But I’m a racist for even thinking that truth, you know.
