Its nice to see the White House bring America together. Why isn't the NAACP outraged? I'm not black so I don't have a dog in the fight, but this is pretty offensive to blacks and if I were black I'd be really tempted to call the media for a press conference. If I were black I'd also be better at basketball since I'd have extra muscles in my legs.
Attorney General Eric Holder spoke at the annual convention of the National Action Network, the civil rights organization founded by Rev. Al Sharpton. He promised a fair and independent review of the Trayvon Martin case and action if necessary.
"the DOJ will conduct a thorough and independent review of the evideince. I can assure you, we will examine the facts and the law. if we find evidence of a potential federal civil rights crime, we will take action."
Lol @ calling a man with a bounty on his head, aired on national television, and celebrities posting you home address, with no law enforcement protection a "flight risk". Yeah, no ----. "Hey George, everyone on Earth wants to kill you, make sure and stay at home and don't leave. We wouldn't want someone like a bounty hundreds or a 'leaky' law enforcement agency to know your location."
I havent followed the story, mainly cause I dont give a ----, but I'm also way more interested in the story with the white guy that got the mob treatment.
Thats one of the things about computers and SOCIAL GARBAGE now a days. Even if you DO THE RIGHT THING, haters gonna hate. Some hate just a little more than others, thus, potentially going through lengths to hunt you the ---- down. Scary world I think.
Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.
It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.
Martin, 17 and unarmed, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self-defense. Police in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, did not charge Zimmerman, citing the state’s “stand your ground” law.
Corey told reporters Tuesday night that she would hold a news conference about the case within 72 hours. A news release from her office said the event will be held in Sanford or Jacksonville, Fla.
Benjamin Crump, who is representing the Martin family, said this week that Corey’s office had asked where Trayvon’s parents would be each day this week. They arrived Wednesday in Washington for a civil rights conference organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton, where they are scheduled to speak.
The announcement of a charge against Zimmerman would come a day after Zimmerman’s attorneys withdrew from the case, citing their inability to contact Zimmerman.
Lawyers Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig on Tuesday expressed concern about Zimmerman’s emotional and physical well-being, saying he has taken actions without consulting them. They also said they do not know where Zimmerman is.
“You can stop looking in Florida,” Uhrig told reporters. “Look much further away than that.”
