DOJ head Holder is ‘holding’ Zimmerman’s gun

21st Century Wire says…

George Zimmerman’s gun will remain as evidence with the Sanford police department, under the directive of DOJ head Eric Holder until a full civil investigation is complete.

This latest federal ‘witch hunt‘ by the DOJ provides a convenient escape hatch from the litany of scandals they have been mired in (like Operation Fast and Furious) – and will ultimately be used to put the federal focus on an individuals ability to defend themselves and more specifically their ability to use firearms.

The new civil case against Zimmerman is just a distraction that will fuel the many divide and conquer strategies that we have outlined.

Thankfully, there’s this old CSPAN tape that refuses to go away…

“really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”

Justice Department places ‘hold’ on Trayvon Martin trial evidence,
including George Zimmerman’s gun – which Florida law says must be returned to him


Daily Mail

The U.S. Department of Justice, overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder, has ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of all the evidence from George Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial – including the exonerated neighborhood watch volunteer’s gun.

Sanford police confirmed on Thursday that the DOJ asked the agency not to return any pieces of evidence to their owners. Zimmerman was expected to get his firearm back by month’s end.

The development is a sign that the criminal section of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division is seriously investigating Zimmerman to determine if federal civil rights charges should be filed.

Assistant state attorney Bernie de la Rionda showed the jury George Zimmerman's gun during his closing argument on July 11. Zimmerman defended himself with the weapon, killing Trayvon Martin

Assistant state attorney Bernie de la Rionda showed the jury George Zimmerman’s gun during his closing argument on July 11. Jurors ruled that Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin with the weapon while he was defending himself.

Zimmerman was acquitted of murder and manslaughter on Sunday in a Florida courtroom, but civil rights violations provide an exception to the U.S. Constitution’s protection against double jeopardy after a defendant has been found ‘not guilty’ in a state or local jurisdiction.
