    From the article:
    "Today, the George Zimmerman case will probably go to a Florida jury. But, even if he is acquitted, George Zimmerman may face federal charges. Because in America–while we think you can’t be charged for the same crime twice–there really is double jeopardy, in the form of federal charges. And if you think Barack Obama–who said if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin–hasn’t instructed his Justice Department to consider it, think again.

    The other day, reader David Makowsky asked me about this and whether I thought that Eric Holder would go after Zimmerman on federal charges. It’s certainly possible. They could go after him for the nebulous, baloney “crime” of “violating Trayvon Martin’s civil rights.” There is a lot of unfortunate precedent for this.






    As I’ve noted on this site, that’s what happened, after April 29, 1992, when four police officers were acquitted by a Simi Valley, California jury in the beating of repeat convicted felon Rodney King, who resisted arrest. Then-President George H.W. Bush, upset over the race riots in South Central Los Angeles, spurred by the verdict, decided to give into the rioters, just like a Stockholm Syndrome afflicted hostage gives into and sympathizes with his captors. And the police officers, already acquitted by a jury of their peers, faced federal charges. Two of the four police officers, Stacey Koon and Laurence Powell, were convicted and sentenced to 30 months in prison.

    And it’s not the first time this kind of thing happened. There’s also the Vincent Chin case.

    On June 23, 1982, two drunk men, one of them a supervisor at an auto plant (and the other his stepson), spotted Chin at a Detroit strip club, Fancy Pants. They mistook him for Japanese (as his surname indicates, he was Chinese), and held him responsible for American autoworkers losing their jobs, as the flood of cheap Japanese cars that came into America in the early ’80s led to a big down period in the American auto industry. And they beat Chin to death, after he left the strip club, and they paid someone to find him. The two men, Ronald Ebens and stepson Michael Nitz, were charged with second degree murder but convicted of manslaughter, pursuant to a plea deal. They were sentenced to three years of probation and served no jail time.

    But after outrage by the Asian American community, the Reagan Administration pursued federal charges against the two men through the Justice Department. Both were charged with violating Chin’s civil rights. Nitz was acquitted, but Ebens was found guilty and sentenced to 25 years in prison. That conviction and sentence were overturned after the Court of Appeals found that Reagan Justice Department officials improperly coached a witness. When Ebens was retried in Ohio, he was acquitted.

    I’m not saying I believe Ebens and Nitz were innocent. While I do not know all the facts of the case, I remember that it sure sounded to me (from the liberal media which controlled all news in those days) like they were guilty and should have been convicted and sentenced to prison time. But they went through the legal system and the court process, and it’s wrong to try people twice for a crime for which they’ve already been tried, just because we don’t like the result. That’s the real double jeopardy in America.

    Double jeopardy is a misunderstood concept in America. It only means you can’t be tried twice for the same crime in the same court. In fact, liberal Justice Department officials–and the American Presidents who direct them–often make sure that Americans are repeatedly charged for crimes of which they’ve already been acquitted, by charging them with new “crimes” for the same crime, such as “violating” the alleged victim’s civil rights.

    Yes, there isn’t just one bite at the apple–or at George Zimmerman–for left-wing race-baiters who want his hide. If he’s acquitted by the jurors in this local trial, Barack Obama and Eric Holder can swoop in and make his life hell yet again for defending himself against Trayvon Martin.

    And if you don’t think they are considering it, think again. They are.

    Will they do it? I’m not sure they would risk the outrage of half the country on this.

    But they’ve done far worse.

    Note, by the way, that no President ever sent his Justice Department to go after O.J. Simpson or Casey Anthony. They just don’t see any race-baiting value there."

    Justice was served. I saw a news story of a bunch of black people picketing outside this courthouse talking about violence and ****. Why don't they picket their own ****ing neighborhoods?

    I love how its always an issue about race when its involving a black person. Both individuals were of color and BOTH acted out of ignorance and one ended up dead. A Mexican coward got his ass beat for approaching a black kid with prejudice,NOT RACISM , and the black kid decided to put hands on this person only to find himself at the end of a barrel of a gun. Oops, wrong Mexican coward! Only one survived and the "witnesses" were crap. Maybe if someone saw the whole incident then the guy would be going away for killing a kid backing down, or maybe they would have seen him draw on the kid only to irritate the kid to continue attack more, forcibly causing him to pull the trigger. Who knows?! All we do know is if the two idiots would have dropped their ignorant egos then they'd both be alive. Two people acting ignorant, one with a gun, equals one dead almost every time. Of course the media and celebrities have to get involved to make it a huge ordeal while more important issues are having the attention drawn from them like our soldiers still dying for a fuked up political agenda overseas and/or our rights continuously being stripped from us behind our backs by corrupt politicians. Good job America at focusing on another overblown story rather then put all that energy into bettering our country and calling out the true criminals screwing us all! What? Paris Hilton didn't give anyone herpes this week? Lindsay Lohan didn't get a DUI and steal some crotchless panties?! Fuking sheep! **** the media, **** our government, and shame on the American people the fell for this shlt show! Again!


    ..... At least that's the way I see it...But it prolly makes too much sense to be right in this country.
