Obama’s DOJ helped “manage” rallies and protests after Trayvon Martin shooting [Darleen Click]

Every time I think the Obama Admin can’t surprise me

On Wednesday, Judicial Watch announced that the Department of Justice had turned over documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act request showing that the Community Relations Service (CRS), a small division of the DOJ, was sent to Sanford, Florida after the Trayvon Martin shooting to help manage rallies and protests.

Who knew that Zimmerman would end up a modern day Alfred Dreyfus – a figure of convenience for the Obama Admin/Media racists who need these crisis opportunities to hammer home that something MUST be done about those Jews White [Hispanics].

America’s Department of f’ing Justice, for criminey’s sake, as agent provocateurs!

It is who they are, it is what they do.

Lee Stranahan:

Welcome to Trayvongate, where the President of the United States used both the bully pulpit, the Department of Justice and sly media manipulation to gin up charges of racism in the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin shooting. Now that the trial is almost finished and the only act of racism mentioned so far came from the victim–Martin called Zimmerman ‘a creepy ass cracker’ according to testimony–the cynical and repeated use of the race card by the White house is even more abhorrent. […]

Some of my reporting at the time was based on interviews with numerous public officials in Sanford who wanted to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution from the Obama administration. They described a situation where the CRS team took over and forced decisions while clearing a path for protests and rallies that heightened the appearence of racial tensions. […]

[U]nder the highly politicized Holder Department of Justice, the CRS has acted as ‘spies and muscle’ according to a source familiar with the unit. In the Zimmerman case, they ended up as doing nothing to facilitate ‘racial stability and harmony ‘, instead acting a heavy thumb on the scales of justice and helping to force events that gave the nation an impression that Martin’s death was racially motivated.

Not just George Zimmerman, but the police and the entire town were targeted in rallies that saw people being bused-in for protests. We now have proof via the Judicial Watch release that these rallies were facilitated by the Obama administration. They were also highly racially charged. Close Obama ally Al Sharpton, along with Jesse Jackson, led the charge.

  1. I actually cried after reading that article. It feels like a knife in the back.

  2. Government is organized crime now. Consent of the governed? Out. Tragic accidents and mugs selling rackets to schnooks so there won’t be no trouble? In.

  3. Will White Hispanics riot if George Zimmerman is found guilty?

    That is why Obama wants an acquittal so he can fire up the black vote for 2014 without firing up the opposition. A conviction screws that up.

  4. And critically in my view, in addition to the loathsome behavior of the racialists of the Federal DoJ and Executive generally, this show trial only comes about with the underhanded collusion of the cowardly Gov. Rick Scott, the feckless Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and perhaps the worst actors of all, the State Prosecutor Angela Corey and her corrupt underlings, De La Rionda, Guy and Mantei. Human scum, one and all.

  5. “…Every time I think the Obama Admin can’t surprise me ….”

    I believe the word you are searching for is revulsion or disgust. Burn it all down. Scatter the stones. Then make the rubble bounce….

  6. Can we call Obama a tyrant , now?

  7. I think the lack of response is what dooms us.

    I’m not just being judgmental, two perfectly valid principles tend to combine into periodic human disasters – “rational ignorance” in which people don’t stress too much about things out of their control, and the tendency not to act until it’s too late on large issues because usually that turns into an overreaction or someone else takes care of it.

    So, you know, reasonable, but doomed.

  8. No evidence supports the prosecution. All evidence and most witnesses (including the majority of the prosecution’s witnesses) support Zimmerman’s account of what happened that night. The police investigated and declined to send it to a grand jury, assuming rightly that this would be one ham sandwich that couldn’t get indicted. And here we are near the verdict, which I fear will be guilty because this is simply a show trial.

    As to the DOJ supporting the Zimmerman protests, I’m not surprised. After all, Trayvon looks like the son Obama would have had: a choom smoking, law breaking thug.

  9. I wonder if the jury fears for it’s life if they render the wrong verdict.

    Obama has an OBLIGATION to speak out. We have no justice anymore if mob violence influences the verdict. NONE. We’re dead.

    If anything happens, it’s Obama’s fault. He could say something. He’s remained silent.

    He’s such an asshole.

  10. “Do you think the Administration will arm the rioters in Florida?” would have had a crazy sound to it back in the day.

  11. I’m beginning to think that the prosecution team all graduated from the University of Phoenix School of Law. What attorney worth his salt asks questions to which he doesn’t already know the answer? There is so much reversible error in this case, should there be a conviction, that it should be taught in law school as a textbook example of how NOT to prosecute a tenuous case. I have never seen such a belligerent judge, either.

    As for the jury fearing for their lives, their lives aren’t worth a warm bucket of spit if they’re going to be swayed by outsiders and what they MIGHT do. If they convict because they fear reprisal, then they deserve to get it good and hard in the karma department.

  12. Eleventh hour argument for lesser included charges being proffered by the prosecution this morning, prior to closing arguments this afternoon.

    They are in “throw it against the wall and see if it sticks” mode.

  13. Can we call Obama a tyrant , now?

    First, he has to be reelected to a third term and assume office before it’s official.

  14. This is the new racial equality in post-racial America under Obama. A “white-hispanic” is being lynched —if only metaphorically— by agents of the state at the behest of a black mob.

  15. They are in “throw it against the wall and see if it sticks” mode

    Just now it’s a better characterization to say “Sandbag, deceive and overwhelm with a charge of child abuse underlying third degree homicide”.

    Holding true to their human scum-like manner, the State demonstrates their concept of justice. That is, demonstrates they have no concept of justice, nor believe they’re required to have such a thing.

  16. I keep waiting for Judge Nelson to toss Don West in the slammer for contempt for calling a spade a spade.

  17. Further more, Judge Nelson looks like Chris Farley.

  18. Obama has an OBLIGATION to speak out.

    He already did — and this show trial is the result. It’s time we deprived people of the “If only Comrade Stalin knew what was happening” self-deception.

  19. If George Zimmerman was named Juan Ramirez, there would be no national story. If Marshawn shot Trayvon, there would be even less of a story. The Media, through laziness and political avarice, jumped on a story of a white man shooting a black youth. The narrative was too perfect to let any “facts” effect their coverage. Here was a white man using Florida’s Stand your Ground law to coldly murder a little black boy. The fact that every fact in that sentence is wrong matters not. Once the race hustlers were brought in(apparently with our tax dollars) it was a fait complit. Now we will either have an innocent man sent to jail to appease the mob or racial riots.

    Hooray for Obama’s post racial America.

  20. And if George Zimmerman got curb stomped into a coma, or worse, and his gun stolen, it would be just another unsolved crime.

  21. sdferr, has it been brought forth by the defense that by virtue of the condo complex being under the aegis of an HOA, that it is private property and not a public street? According to Florida’s Castle Doctrine and the Stand Your Ground Law, Zimmerman was perfectly within his rights to question Martin who was for all intents and purposes a trespasser. Had Martin identified himself and continued on his way, we wouldn’t be here today.

  22. *If anything happens, it’s Obama’s fault. He could say something. He’s remained silent. He’s such an asshole.*

    If I had an asshole, it would look alot like Obama.

  23. I think the Summer of ’13 will be remembered as “The Season of a Thousand Cuts.” IRS, EPA, Obamacare, NSA, DOJ–each has shown its lawless capacity in the service of obtaining and retaining ever more power at the expense of personal liberty. Now there are stories that the Pennsylvania Attorney General is refusing to defend a PA law on same sex marriage, duly enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor. So much for swearing to uphold and defend the laws, even if you disagree with them. The Zimmerman case is a microcosm of where we are headed as a nation. If we have not yet reached a tipping point toward the end of the American Experiment, we’re damned close.

    God help us.

    P.S. Leigh, your remark about the prosecutors in Florida is an insult to the University of Phoenix. [Insert “Smiley” Thing Here]

  24. I was under the impression that Stand Your Ground doesn’t enter into this case, that the defense is a straight-up case of self-defense.

  25. Now there are stories that the Pennsylvania Attorney General is refusing to defend a PA law on same sex marriage, duly enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor. So much for swearing to uphold and defend the laws, even if you disagree with them.

    Why should he? California’s AG doesn’t.

  26. Now these documents have the DOJ deploying to Florida on March 25th which means it had to have been “in the works” for some time before that.

    The first national news article about the case was a Reuters piece by Barbara Liston dated March 7th and which was first run by the Chicago Tribune and then picked up by Yahoo! and then by March 8th it was all over the media. My Yahoo! link to it is now 404ed but the Wayback machine has a copy.

    It reads as a press release by Crump & Parker not a news story. It starts with this which sets the race narrative that has been there throughout.

    The family of a 17-year-old African-American boy shot to death last month in his gated Florida community by a white Neighborhood Watch captain wants to see the captain arrested, the family’s lawyer said on Wednesday.

    Trayvon Martin was shot dead after he took a break from watching NBA All-Star game television coverage to walk 10 minutes to a convenience store to buy snacks including Skittles candy requested by his 13-year-old brother, Chad, the family’s lawyer Ben Crump said.

    “He was a good kid,” Crump said in an interview, adding that the family would issue a call for the Watch captain’s arrest at a news conference on Thursday. “On his way home, a Neighborhood Watch loose cannon shot and killed him.”

    On March 20th the same Reuters reporter filed another story which said that the DOJ and FBI were opening investigations into the shooting. The story had this line:

    The victim’s family lawyer, Ben Crump, said public pressure was behind an earlier promise by the Justice Department to review the case.

    Which means that the DOJ was involved earlier than March 20th and likely was working with Crump & Parker who had bragged in that earlier profile of having Al Sharpton on speed-dial.

    In Trayvon’s case, they alerted the news media more quickly. They phoned the Rev. Al Sharpton almost instantly, and organized marches with local civil rights activists. They also started pressing for federal involvement and alleging a cover-up from the get-go.

  27. If I had an asshole, it would look alot like Obama.

    And what it produced would only reinforce the resemblance.

  28. Everything in that press release geoff quoted is a lie except the part where Trayvon Martin was shot and killed, and perhaps the part about Skittles. And then I’m not sure about the Skittles.

  29. But assholes are actually useful.

  30. As if the case isn’t weird enough.

    As expected, the Judge in the George Zimmerman case ruled that in addition to Second Degree Murder, she will instruct the jury on the lesser included offense of Manslaughter, as required by Florida case law.

    In a surprise move this morning, the prosecution asked the Judge to drop the Aggravated Assault charge and to instruct the jury on Third Degree Murder, which is murder in the course of committing a felony.

    The felony the State wanted as the predicate was Aggravated Child Abuse (Jury Instruction) because Trayvon Martin was 17 at the time of the shooting.

  31. Cannot a 17 year old be tried as an adult in Florida? What is the magic line of demarcation for transition to and from childhood?

    Ernst, you may be right about it being a straight up defense case. I’ve gotten confused because of all the talk about Stand Your Ground and did Zimmerman know or not know about the statute.

  32. “And what it produced would only reinforce the resemblance.”

    res ipsa loquitur

  33. Why even pretend that this is a real trial? It’s a kangaroo court. I hope the jury does the right thing.

  34. Thanks to leigh’s 8:45 am comment, all I can picture is the judge doing this after the trial is over.

  35. If the Felony Murder charge predicated on Child Abuse goes to the jury, it will be an absolute travesty; as if this case is not one already. Felony murder is not a “lesser included” offense of a homicide, and there has to be evidence of a seperate felony, which evidence is nonexistant in this case. If it’s submitted, it will prove conclusively that this prosecutor and, more importantly, the judge are more concerned about political appearances than justice. The judge’s actions heretofore could possibly have been attributed to judicial discretion. This new farce cannot.

    Watch closely. It’s coming to a neighborhood near you.

  36. leigh,

    If Trayvon Martin had managed to accomplish his goal, to severely injure or even kill George Zimmerman, he would most certainly have been tried as an adult. Besides, “Stand Your Ground” became irrelevant the instant Martin sucker-punched Zimmerman and knocked him to the ground.

    My guess: despite even the State’s witnesses corroborating the defendant’s version of events (and the fact that if he’s not guilty of Murder II by self-defense, he cannot be guilty of any other charge because it was, guess what, self-defense!), the jurors will be so thoroughly intimidated by the thoughts of riots and threats against their families (their names WILL become public, one way or another – bet on it!) that they will convict for a “lesser” charge of Manslaughter (or the newly added ridiculous “Aggravated Child Abuse” charge), and will assume that the conviction will be overturned on appeal. This way, there will be no riots and the jurors will be safe, yet sleep easy “knowing” GZ will eventually be freed. Maybe.

  37. Sorry about that, John.

  38. Ach, I hope not Spiny.

    In Florida does the jury set the penalty at the time of conviction, should there be one or is it a separate penalty trial or is the penalty up to the discretion of the judge?

    Free George!

  39. Shtetl G,

    If Marshawn shot Trayvon, there would be even less of a story.

    “Marshawns” have shot and killed almost 200 “Trayvons” in Chicago this year alone, but the only thing anyone, especially elected officials, in Chicago is howling about is white people in the suburbs (and even neighboring States) owning guns.

  40. CNN releases GZ SSN and phone numbers.

  41. The jurors’ current safety of anonymity will not last long, leigh.

  42. No it won’t, Spiny. I just hope they woman up and deliver an acquittal or at the worst a hung jury.

    Turtles. Down, down, down.

    The washing of the hands at each turn, passing the decision and the responsibility on down the line, because no one wants to have to face a mob. Any mob, anywhere, until there is no more choice left.

  44. I hate that see more thing.

  45. As ExJon said on Twitter the other day, can we just declare that Jodi Arias is guilty of Trayvon’s murder and be done with both circuses?

    Don’t bet on it.

    The reversal upon appeal part, not the part about what the jurors will do.

  51. Ernst,

    Don’t bet on it.

    The reversal upon appeal part, not the part about what the jurors will do.

    I’m not. That’s the “Maybe”. I fully expect the jury to convict GZ of something, if for no other reason than to save their own lives (and their families). What happens after that, who knows. Zimmerman is just a minor sacrifice on the altar of the Transformative Presidency™.

  52. Perhaps Obama will intervene, and tell Holder to put Zimmerman in a cell with Naughty YouTube Guy What Caused Benghazi.
