    George Zimmerman not expected to face civil rights charges in Trayvon Martin death

    George Zimmerman not expected to face civil rights charges in Trayvon Martin death

    By Sari Horwitz October 1 at 6:36 PM

    The Justice Department is not expected to bring civil rights charges against George Zimmerman in the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, according to three law enforcement officials, despite allegations that the killing was racially motivated.

    The federal investigation of Zimmerman was opened two years ago by the department’s civil rights division, but officials said there is insufficient evidence to bring federal charges. The investigation technically remains open, but it is all but certain the department will close it.

    Investigators still want to “dot their i’s and cross their t’s,” said one official, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the matter.

    1.) Like we didn't know that was going to happen. Even though it hasn't. Yet!
    2. THe WP has this categorized under "/world/national-security/". That's funny.

    Maybe they are breaking the news slowly to the race baiters.

    He didn't commit a crime, so he didn't violate Martin's civil rights.
