Unbelievable: DOJ Opens 'Tip Line' In Zimmerman Civil Rights Probe

In case you missed it, the witch hunt has officially begun. - Michael Miller/IJ Review

Barbara Arnwine, president of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, who earlier in the day called for federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman, said she joined a DOJ conference call to discuss the prospects.

“They were calling on us to actively refer anyone who had any information, that might build a case against Zimmerman for either a civil rights violation or a hate crime. They said they would very aggressively investigate this case.” [I'm sure they did.]

In addition, Sherrilyn Ifill, President and Director-Counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund; Laura Murphy, Washington Chapter head of the ACLU; and several national, Florida and Sanford-based “human relations” groups participated.

During the call, DOJ officials announced that they had set up an email address so people to send in “tips” that could help aid in their “investigation.” (

Citizen watchdogs light up Justice Department’s #ZimmermanTipLine - Twitchy

Things have been quiet for the citizen thought police ever since closed up shop, but vigilantes seeking justice for Trayvon Martin were given a new job today as the Justice Department announced its dedicated email address for tips into its investigation into George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was acquitted by a jury Saturday night, but Attorney General Eric Holder has teased that he’s still very interested in pursuing an investigation into possible civil rights violations.

Of course, the FBI already conducted an investigation into Zimmerman, interviewing friends, neighbors and co-workers, and found no evidence of racism. NBC’s damning 911 call turned out to be edited, so that’s no help. The only logical step, then, is a nationwide fishing expedition for anonymous tips that might hint otherwise.
