    D.o.J. Zimmerman case ‘more frivolous’ than state case was

    In an appearance on the Fox News Channel’s “Happening Now,” the National Review Institute’s Andrew McCarthy, a former assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said that any Department of Justice case against George Zimmerman for violating the civil rights of Trayvon Martin would “be even more frivolous than the state case was.”

    “There is no federal connection here,” McCarthy said. “If it’s possible, there’s even less evidence of a federal jurisdictional nexus than there was evidence that he had the state of mind to commit depraved-indifference murder, which is what he was charged with and what the jury rejected in Florida. There is no evidence after all the searching that they did that racism played into what happened in this altercation at all. And even if there were, there is even less evidence that what would happen apart from being self-defense, which I think what is strongly established as being at this point. There is no evidence that he had any intention of depriving Mr. Martin of any cognizable federal right. So if it’s possible, a federal case here would be even more frivolous than the state case was.”

    Zimmerman was found “not guilty” by a Florida jury for the murder of Martin Saturday evening.

    FBI already cleared Zimmerman of any civil rights violations, so it will difficult for DoJ/Holder to do anything. Nothing but grandstanding imo.
