    Is this boob (and his masters) setting the stage for yet another federal power grab? National control over state law.

    Addressing black on black crime doesn't pay apparently.
    But what can they do? I don't consider talking about it as doing anything.

    The truth is that the Zimmerman case has no abnormal qualities to it whatsoever and had no reason to get this much media attention. I'm just gonna put this YouTube video here.

    But watching people dismiss someone that can't be so easily dismissed is a laughing matter.

    Holder isn't a legislator, so he can be dismissed all day when it comes to matters of individual state laws.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Not really. The federal government has a habit of getting involved in "state" matters. Moreover, as a significant member of the Obama admin, his influence carries more weight than most.

    Obama and his crew see racial division and jump in with two feet to make the problem worse(remember the columbia professor?). They just couldn't leave the community organizing back in Chicago like I had hoped. Nothing to do but count the days till we see the backs of all these crumbs.

    There is no account of the last few moments and yet ... the juror states clearly "When George confronted him, and he could have walked away and gone home " ...?

    I heard the tapes and Trayvon was walking and George even describes the pursuit. Eventually when George was close enough Trayvon turned and stood his ground.
    Trayvon attacked an armed man. He brought skittles to a gunfight, and paid with his life for his own poor decision.

    He wanted to be a thug and died like one.

    The US Attorney General is nothing more than a glorified lawyer. He represents the US government in the Supreme Court and abroad, and supervises federal law enforcement. Federal law enforcement can't tell the individual states with these SYG laws to abolish them, anymore than they can enforce or prohibit abortion laws, or marriage laws.
