A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.

The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

CRS spent $674.14 between March 25-27 related to having been “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.” CRS spent another $1,142.84 for the same purpose between March 25-28.

CRS spent $892.55 “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida” between March 30-April 1, and $751.60 “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.”

Sharpton, who promoted the Tawana Brawley hoax in the 1980s and in 1995 led a protest against the “white interloper” owner of a Harlem clothing store that ended in a deadly shooting rampage at the store, was a featured speaker at the March 31 rally, called “The March for Trayvon Martin,” where he advocated for Zimmerman’s prosecution.

CRS expenditures related to the anti-Zimmerman protests continued through mid-April. Between April 11 and April 12, CRS spent $552.35 “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.”

Local government officials noticed the Department of Justice’s efforts in building “bridges of understanding” in Sanford.

Already posted in another thread. The Community Relations Service in the Department of Justice was created in 1964 to give assistance to state and local demonstrations, protests and other public gatherings where escalations of racial tension was possible. It's not much different from how other government departments help to manage and control large crowds who protest or demonstrate. Instead of being honest about this, some psychos decided to spin it and turn into a conspiracy theory whereby the government is endorsing demonstrations against citizen. Complete fail.

You are correct in the statement except for the fact that the Obama/Holder cabal wasn't enlisted the CRS to reduce the possibility of rioting but specifically to incite the racial tension and rioting. IMHO. If Zimmerman is acquitted of these charges the CRS will cause more agitation and racial strive by order of Obama/Holder.
