NAACP Demands Justice Department Charge Zimmerman With Civil Rights Violations
The NAACP, unhappy with the acquittal of George Zimmerman by an all female FL jury in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, is calling for Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department to push for civil right’s violations against George Zimmerman for violatin Martin’s “right to life”.
Here is the message posted by the NAACP along with an online petition.
Attorney General Eric Holder,
The Department of Justice has closely monitored the State of Florida’s prosecution of the case against George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin murder since it began. Today, with the acquittal of George Zimmerman, it is time for the Department of Justice to act.
The most fundamental of civil rights — the right to life — was violated the night George Zimmerman stalked and then took the life of Trayvon Martin. We ask that the Department of Justice file civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman for this egregious violation.
Please address the travesties of the tragic death of Trayvon Martin by acting today.
