Do you feel there is a civil rights case against Zimmerman?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department says it is looking into the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges now that George Zimmerman has been acquitted in the state case.

The department opened an investigation into Martin's death last year but stepped aside to allow the state prosecution to proceed.

In a statement Sunday, the Justice Department said the criminal section of the civil rights division, the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office for the Middle District of Florida are continuing to evaluate the evidence generated during the federal probe, in addition to the evidence and testimony from the state trial.

The statement said that, in the government's words, "experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation."

 I just hate that Justice Dept feels from pressue they need to do this.  If a civil case needs to be done then the parents should file one.  But it was self defense and the jury agreed.

No, there should not be a civil rights case brought against him.

I've seen this posted several times. I still don't quite understand what civil rights they feel were violated.
