    Default I know there is another Zimmerman thread...

    ...but I thought this info should be it's own thread. If it's repetitive, I apologize. This trial isn't my cup of tea, since I think it's probably a done deal because it's so racist, and I don't believe the "white Hispanic" stands a chance in that environment.

    This article spells out why the trial is being put into the 'racial' column. If you don't think this is obvious, you aren't even being honest with yourself.

    Report: Justice Dept Backed Trayvon Martin Rallies

    A secretive branch of the U.S. Department of Justice was deployed to Sanford, Fla., in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting to help organize rallies, including one headlined by the Rev. Al Sharpton, calling for the arrest and prosecution of George Zimmerman.

    Records obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch, under the Freedom of Information Act, showed that members of the Justice Department's Community Relations Service were sent to Sanford in March and April of 2012 to help manage protests, The Daily Caller reported Wednesday.

    The 347 pages of documents obtained from the federal government showed that $5,320 in expenses was claimed by the Community Relations Service for workers assigned to protests and marches in and around Sanford after Zimmerman was accused of shooting Martin.

    At a March 31 rally, CRS workers provided technical assistance to the city of Sanford and rally organizers for the event billed as "The March for Trayvon Martin," where civil-rights activist and MSNBC host Sharpton called for Zimmerman's prosecution, according to The Daily Caller.

    "These documents detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement posted on the watchdog group's website. "My guess is that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government employees to help organize racially charged demonstrations."

    The release of the Justice Department documents came as the defense rested their case in the second-degree murder trial without calling Zimmerman to testify.

    According to federal documents obtained by Judicial Watch, the feds spent $674.14 from March 25-27 in Sanford "to work marches, demonstrations and rallies related to the shooting death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain." Another $1,142.14 was claimed for similar work from March 25-28.

    From March 30 to April 1, the CRS staff rang up $892.55 in expenses "to provide support for protest deployment in Florida." Also during that time, the agency claimed another $751.60 in expenses to "provide technical assistance to the city of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31."

    CRS filed for $1,307.40 in expenses from April 3-12 "to provide technical assistance, conciliation and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford." And from April 11-12, CRS spent $552.35 while in Sanford "to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old African-American male."

    The CRS was created under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, The Daily Caller reported. The agency describes its role as the Department of Justice's "peacemaker for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin."

    I have seen this reported in a couple of different places. Today, on radio, one of the people from JW also added that there was some audio where one of the CRS employees said: "If the black community thinks there is a problem, then there is a problem."

    The "intention" of having the CRS is fine. However, the issue is that they are not fulfilling their mission of "mediating" conflicts, but rather are making for more conflict and divisiveness by their behavior.

    From Holder's track record, I doubt we can expect things to change as long as he's running the DOJ. Of course, if questioned on this, Holder will say he had no idea anything like this was happening

    At least it wasn't a Big Budget item. When was the last time any of us have seen any action under this administration come in for under a hundred grand? Everyone must have been working for minimum wage.
