Curiously, it has been held that criminally charging someone with criminal violation of another person's rights is NOT double jeopardy. If you think Zimmerman profiled Martin because of his race and that Zimmerman violated Martin's civil rights because of Martin's race, do you want the Obama administration to bring a federal criminal civil rights violation charge against Zimmerman in federal court?

That is extremely debatable. And you have to realize in doing so he can use one of his favorite slogans "Bush did it"

If that was a survey question you know it'd get 10%!

No I mean Bush charged the acquitted police officers in Rodney King with federal civil rights violations and o'failure could easily have holder do the same to Zim right now. I'm sure our resident haters are all for it,a nd if it happened o'failure could just say "Bush did it"

Bush shot Trayvon Martin?:shock:
