DOJ: No Charges vs. Zimmerman

One can imagine that Holder’s DOJ left no sofa unturned, and that Holder, himself, is grinding his teeth in dismay at the threshold of evidence required to prove Zimmerman ‘intentionally violated’ St. Trayvon’s civil rights. From ABC:

While the public waits for a Justice Department announcement over two separate investigations spurred by the summer shooting of an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, the department announced today it is closing its investigation into the killing of Trayvon Martin.

Justice Department officials met with Martin’s family today, and were told that they will not be filing charges against George Zimmerman, who shot the 17-year-old after a confrontation in 2012. Thursday marks three years to the day since Martin was killed.

Federal prosecutors concluded there is not sufficient evidence to prove Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Fla., intentionally violated Martin’s civil rights.
