66% Oppose Zimmerman Federal Charges


Someone somewhere had to have known when they went to prosecute the Zimmerman case that there was no case. Even after the Sanford police department looked at all the evidence, they didn't even charge or arrest Zimmerman because that evidence clearly showed it was a simple case of self defense. If anyone would read the 911 call transcript, it is clear that Zimmerman did not follow Trayvon after the dispatcher asked him not to, despite the fact that many are trying to claim Zimmerman was chasing Martin.

Unfortunately that wasn't good enough for the race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and they made this whole thing blow up into a national story even though the evidence showed and finally a jury, that all parties in this case had to agree to, decidedly found Zimmerman not guilty.

Oh, but the Obama administration and Attorney General Eric Holder aren't through, they still are looking at every conceivable option to bring federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman. However, a new Fox News poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans are not for bringing any federal charges against Zimmerman. Most people are clearly seeing through this sham and are not comfortable with the Obama administration doggedly trying to pursue it where the evidence clearly shows what happened.

Read more on the poll below from Fox News:

A just-released Fox News poll finds a huge racial divide over the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case.

African Americans disagree with the verdict that Zimmerman was not guilty of murdering Martin by a wide 87-10 percent margin. Among whites, a 56-percent majority agrees with the Florida jury’s finding, while 31 percent disagree.

Blacks are nearly four times as likely as whites to think Martin’s race was the single most important factor in Zimmerman’s decision to follow him (54 vs. 14 percent). [...]

The new poll finds most people (80 percent) have been following the Zimmerman trial at least somewhat closely, including 86 percent of blacks and 80 percent of whites.

Overall, 49 percent of voters agree with the Florida jury’s not-guilty verdict, while 40 percent disagree and 12 percent have no opinion. In addition, a 66-percent majority opposes the government trying to prosecute Zimmerman on federal civil rights charges. That’s more than twice the 28 percent who support federal charges.
