Obama Files Federal Charges Against George Zimmerman Following Acquittal

2:09 am - 07/14/2013

Just when we thought the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case was over after Zimmerman’s acquittal, the Obama Administration has taken the steps needed to file federal charges, thus sidestepping the well established double jeopardy, against Zimmerman. Unidentified sources within the Administration have confirmed that Obama, and Justice Eric Holder at the Department of Justice have filed charges against Zimmerman for “violating Trayvon Martin’s civil rights”.

Double jeopardy is an often misunderstood concept in American Law. The rule merely states that an individual cannot be tried twice for the same crime in the SAME COURT. Liberal Justice Department officials often charge Americans with crimes from which they have previously been acquitted by filing federal charges on a similar crime in a federal court.

At approximately 10:01 pm EST this evening Judge Debra Nelson (pictured right) announced that the all women jury had found Zimmerman not guilty of fatally shooting and killing the 17-year old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, FL, just over one year ago.

The case has received national attention and nearly wall-to-wall coverage on all mainstream media outlets. While Al Sharpton and the entire staff at MSNBC has advocated heavily for a guilty verdict, we on the right have been praying for an acquittal for Zimmerman who was simply exercising his right to “Stand your Ground” (a Florida statute that apparently allows individuals to follow, track, then attack young Black youth before shooting them dead if feeling at all threatened throughout the process).

Obama has actively used his influence throughout the case (think “If I had a son he would look like Trayvon”). Earlier this week, multiple sources, including Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and the entire right wing, has reported on the involvement of the Federal Government in spending millions of dollars in support of anti-Zimmerman protests (race riots). According to Fox News, ” 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.”


The NAACP has a petition to have a civil rights charge brought against Mr. Zimmerman. This is the same route that eventually brought Rodney King some justice. Please consider signing this if you wish to see justice for Trayvon Martin. petition link

edit: so sorry everyone - I was fooled too! I dearly wanted it to be true. Thanks to the commenters who pointed it out. The petition though, is *REAL* and please SIGN thank you!

Oh well for them tbh.

Ok. This isn't real. It's not even on twitter yet.

I have no idea. I checked it on google and it seems to be reasonably legit, the latest post about it was 14mins ago and the furthest I could find back was 5hrs ago. It's been making rounds on my facebook as well

Crossing my fingers for this to be real.

I hope this is true.

semi OT, but people on my facebook keep posting that zimmerman is "hispanic", but that is an ethnicity not a race, correct?

I'd like to respond to some of these people, but I am not sure how to do it properly. I googled some stuff, but it mainly talks about the census and that is it. Does anyone have good articles/ journal papers that could give me a better understanding?

the opening of this may help explain? Or maybe that's just what you have found. I tend to use Latin@ because Hispanic sounds like the census to me. :)

FWIW, I've heard that Zimmerman identified as Hispanic (his mother was Peruvian). I imagine that's especially complex in Florida with some Cubans who are essentially descended from Spanish aristocracy and other Cubans who have mainly African ancestry. IDK

This has been the most stressful night I've had in a while, and this is sorely needed news
