In the United States, Justice is supposed to be BLIND. It should be in Ideal Cases that the Courts deliver a fair and just trial to be judged by a Judge, or a Jury of the defendant’s peers. The Justice Department for its symbol has the scales of justice to be equal and blind. Or as Sgt. Friday would say, just the facts, ma’am, just the facts. As said, in all trials this is the ideal, but we know “things happen” and if severe enough, a mistrial happens. This is a statue representing Blind Justice:
However, our present Department of Injustice has forgotten this. It started its tenure in 2009 by dismissing a guilty plea by persons obstructing the voting process. We see the myriad of scandals with NSA, IRS, and others. Most of this is being done by Omission, than Commission. Or, don’t say anything and it may disappear. But with the George Zimmerman trial Withholder’s Department of Injustice has sunk to another new low in that they campaigned and spent TAX DOLLARS to vilify the Defendant, Zimmerman. See below. This is how Justice Feels now. In Shame.
Newly Released Documents Detail the Department of Justice’s Role in Organizing Trayvon Martin Protests
DOJ deployed obscure section to play role in Florida protests.
July 10, 2013 – 9:29 am
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.
