Obama’s Alinskyite Administration: The Justice Department’s involvement in the Zimmerman case is highly suspect.

by JOHN FUND July 12, 2013

Judicial Watch, a conservative legal foundation, has used the Freedom of Information Act to uncover documents that show Eric Holder's Justice Department used a "community relations" unit to support and stage-manage public protests in Florida against George Zimmerman after his controversial February 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Justice's Community Relations Service (CRS) even helped organize a meeting between Sanford, Fla., public officials and the local NAACP. The result was the resignation of police chief Bill Lee over his handling of the Martin case. While his resignation was rescinded after a few weeks by local officials, Chief Lee faced further pressure to leave his job and ultimately quit for good two months later. Valerie Houston, one of the pastors leading the protests against Zimmerman and Lee, praised the Community Relations Service as being "there for us."

The website for the CRS claims it "does not take sides among disputing parties" and only provides "impartial conciliation and mediation services." But the evidence of its activities in Sanford shows that it placed a large thumb on the scales of justice in the Zimmerman case. What can providing support for a "March for Trayvon Martin" rally headlined by the rabble-rousing Reverend Al Sharpton have to do with "conciliation and mediation"?

From top to bottom, the handling of the Zimmerman case was marinated in racial political correctness. Lee, the former Sanford police chief, told CNN this week that he faced severe pressure from outside forces to conduct his investigation in an unprofessional way so as to placate the public. "It was [relayed] to me that they just wanted an arrest. They didn't care if it got dismissed later," he said. "You don't do that."  Lee told CNN that arresting Zimmerman based on the evidence he had collected would have violated Zimmerman's Fourth Amendment rights. But he said political influence "forced a change in the course of the normal criminal-justice process. . . . That investigation was taken away from us. We weren't able to complete it."
