Now that George Zimmerman’s criminal trial is over, and he has been found not-guilty, he will discover that his woes have only just begun. There is already clamoring, from the usual sources, for the Department of Justice (sic) to pursue civil charges against him.
The NAACP, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and other civil rights activists are calling on the U.S. Department of Justice and Attorney Gen. Eric Holder to press federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watchman who was acquitted by a Sanford, Fla., jury Saturday in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
“The most fundamental of civil rights — the right to life — was violated the night George Zimmerman stalked and then took the life of Trayvon Martin,” NAACP President Ben Jealous wrote in a letter to Holder shortly after the verdict was announced. “We ask that the Department of Justice file civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman for this egregious violation. Please address the travesties of the tragic death of Trayvon Martin by acting today.”
These so-called “civil rights” organizations carry a lot of clout. They have practically limitless resources at their disposal and they have no interest in the rights of white men, even white men who are actually “Hispanic whites” such as Zimmerman. But even if the federal government does not follow the example set in 1992, by prosecuting the officers with civil rights violations, Zimmerman will still be forced into hiding. Too many people are calling for his head. The media, including facebook (thank you Human Stupidity), have been inciting such violence from the start. When the major media outlets, and the federal government, want somebody dead, that person has reason to worry. It wouldn’t surprise me if Obama sent a drone against him – in the interests of “national security” of course.
Zimmerman already has roots in Peru; his mother is from there. He would probably be happier there, and a whole lot safer.
