The Congressional Black Caucus wants the Justice Department to investigate the shooting death of a 17-year-old, unarmed black Florida high school student as a potential hate crime.
This case compromises the integrity of our legal system and sets a horrific precedent of vigilante justice, Congressional Black Caucus Chair Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said in a statement. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus stand together in the name of justice for Trayvon. As a nation we cannot, should not, and will not ignore, Trayvons brutal murder and the inconceivable fact that his killer remains free. Contrary to the flippant way this case has been handled, his life had meaning and purpose. Trayvon had a family, friends and a future all taken away because of the color of his skin

OK seriously, it's his father's name. Nothing to see there.
Lots of Germans flooded to South America in the 1940s.
This should be fun. I'm not sure the race pimps in the CBC have figured out yet that Zimmerman ain't white.
Does it suck? Yes, but what can I do except keep going to work and taking care of my homeschooling wife and four children.
Similar sentiment from two of my BIL and two of my nephews. Something I, as a white guy, haven't really ever experienced except maybe traveling through Mexico - kinda creepy.
A “struggle” more than likely initiated by Zimmerman.
The 911 tapes WILL NOT back him as the victim. He clearly sought the confrontation with an unarmed KID with a soda and a pack of Skittles.
Not to mention the 40+ calls to 911 over the past few years.
Hate crime? Zimmerman is Hispanic. Only whites are racist.
maybe zimmerman is puerto rican with a “new” birth certificate.
if there was a struggle and zimmerman was in fear of his life, it was self defense. What does the 40 calls say except there were numerous untoward incidents being reported.
One need not be black to smell something that stinks of wrongdoing in this particular case.
An apparently innocent young man is dead at the hand of a self-appointed community vigilante,in public, and the killer was not even detained/arrested for an investigation!
So the Florida law is, I can take proactive steps to engage, confront, shoot & kill anyone I “perceive” to be a threat?
Unfortunately, that's the only reason this has legs. The ONLY reason this has legs. How many times a day does this happen across the US?
Over the weekend there were 10 people killed and 49 people injured in shootings in Chicago including a 6yo girl. You had black-on-black, black-on-Hispanic, Hispanic-on-Hispanic and Hispanic-on-black for the perps. My God, 59 people killed or wounded in an American city over the span of 48 hours.
If you go to Google News right now and query on: chicago killings you'll get 81 hits. If you query on: sanford zimmerman you'll get 1833 hits. And this is only because it is a perceived white-on-black killing and the race pimps are out in force. Otherwise it probably wouldn't have even made the news. Now we have Sharpton coming to Sanford. Ya, that ought to cool things down.
Politically, when Blacks go after Hispanics for “hate crimes”, it is good for Republicans.
And you put up with that?
Jorge is a latino and the brothers will be hard pressed making this a hate crime because only whitey can be guilty of hate crimes.
I saw shiela jackson lee on TV today and the woman is truly evil and inner ugly.
The CBC is out for blood.
Seems to me you have a legit harrassment suit if you wanted to push it.
Michael Berry had a White History Month. You will love his radio show. He’s all over Sheila Jackson Lee.
