Newly Released Documents Detail the Dept of Justice’s Role in Organizing Trayvon Martin Protests
PJ Tatler ^ | July 10, 2013 | Bryan Preston

Posted on 07/10/2013 9:47:53 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained documents proving that the Department of Justice played a major behind-the-scenes role in organizing protests against George Zimmerman. Zimmerman is on trial for second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in February 2012.

Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the DOJ on April 24, 2012. According to the documents JW received, a little-known DOJ unit called the Community Relations Service deployed to Sanford, FL to organize and manage rallies against Zimmerman.

Among JW’s findings:

•March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
•March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.
•March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.”
•March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent an additional $751.60 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.”
•April 3 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $1,307.40 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford.”
•April 11-12, 2012, CRS spent $552.35 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17 year old African American male.” – expenses for employees to travel, eat, sleep?

JW says the documents it obtained reveal that CRS is not engaging in its stated mission of conducting “impartial mediation practices and conflict resolution,” but instead engaged on the side of the anti-Zimmerman protesters.

On April 15, 2012, during the height of the protests, the Orlando Sentinel reported, “They [the CRS] helped set up a meeting between the local NAACP and elected officials that led to the temporary resignation of police Chief Bill Lee according to Turner Clayton, Seminole County chapter president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.” The paper quoted the Rev. Valarie Houston, pastor of Allen Chapel AME Church, a focal point for protestors, as saying “They were there for us,” after a March 20 meeting with CRS agents.

Separately, in response to a Florida Sunshine Law request to the City of Sanford, Judicial Watch also obtained an audio recording of a “community meeting” held at Second Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Sanford on April 19, 2012. The meeting, which led to the ouster of Sanford’s Police Chief Bill Lee, was scheduled after a group of college students calling themselves the “Dream Defenders” barricaded the entrance to the police department demanding Lee be fired. According to the Orlando Sentinel, DOJ employees with the CRS had arranged a 40-mile police escort for the students from Daytona Beach to Sanford.

“These documents detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “My guess is that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government employees to help organize racially-charged demonstrations.”

Organizing such protests falls well withing both President Barack Obama’s and Attorney General Eric Holder’s wheelhouses. Obama was a “community organizer” in his career prior to elective politics, a position that uses protests and street theater, along with threats, to obtain concessions from businesses and other political opponents. Holder has accused America of being a “nation of cowards” for not discussing racial issues enough. He also described black Americans as “my people” during a congressional hearing.

As the Zimmerman trial winds down, the threat of race riots should he be acquitted have risen.

That - along with the NAACP convention in Mammy, FLA - should prove for interesting non-news.

Holders people could burn down half of Sanford, and I believe the alphabet networks will just ignore it as they do 90 percent of all black violence.

This stuff should all be entered into the case as evidence of official government conspiracy against George Zimmerman before he’s had a trial. DOJ already had him convicted. Local PD forced by fedgov to arrest and charge him with an incident they’d investigated and found nothing to them from evidence or any other expert to counter-indicate self-defense.

You've got that wrong. It's 99%+, not 95%. It's far worse than anyone thinks. The Obamnunist crowd and their enablers are going to get their race war. It's just not going to turn out the way they think it will.

The CRS and riots is a case of job justification.

The threat of riots is designed to put money in CRS pockets to spread around to make them go away.

If riots occur then its because there wasn’t enough money to pay the rioters not to appear.

If riots don’t happen it’s because the CRS tamped it down and the program should be expanded.

As you look in the courtroom behind the Martins, those pastors back there are CRS and are being paid federal dollars to be there.

Another day...another outrage. I told my wife several weeks ago that if Zimmerman is acquitted I completely expect that Holder’s DoJ will immediately file civil rights violation charges against him.

Zimmerman must be destroyed to become an example to the sheeple. The perpetual violence of the black underclass must be accepted as a part of “the new order.”

(Note my tagline)

Local police should be prepared for riots and Governor Rick Scott should be prepared to call in the National Guard at a moment's notice if needed.

By forcing a trial and appointing a special prosecutor, Rick Scott didn't "defuse" anything. Instead, he is accountable for having given the left time to organize bigger riots on a national scale. His mistake is in assuming that the left cares about the evidence of the case. They don't.

This projection of rationality characteristic of Republicans is their downfall. Decent people taught to "love their neighbor" simply cannot fathom Americans so dedicated to evil as are the Marxist operatives of the Slave Party. This constant political mugging belies the fable that it takes two to make a fight.

(from the article):”JW says the documents it obtained reveal that CRS is not engaging in its stated mission of conducting “impartial mediation practices and conflict resolution,” but instead engaged on the side of the anti-Zimmerman protesters. “

Add the US “Just-Us Dept. “ to the list of lawsuits and specify the chief law enforcement officer for being ‘unlawful’, and inciting discord .
What else would you expect from this administration ?

This reminds me of journalism , whereby media doesn’t report the news , they CREATE it for their own purposes.
The “Just-Us” Department , rather than truely investigating the situation have actually been creating ‘in-justice ‘, with receipts !
This trial has been a media frenzy - now we know why - its the administration’s agenda !
And then people wonder why you can’t trust Govt. !!

Holder should have been forced out right after he dropped charges against the black racists but now the GOP has done nothing but useless hearings and the media ignores all of Holders corruption,.

Black man can do anything today and get away with it because of white guilty idiots who have no brains to understand a word they like to shout and that is equality.

No it’s not. Appointing people who are not held accountable for ANYTHING to high offices was a fatal mistake for America. The Civil Rights Act is responsible for this, because it created ‘protected classes’ who can willfully destroy America and be allowed to do so with impunity.
