    This isn't an Obama issue. It's a product of our split jurisdictional system where both the Feds and the states can bring charges. It's been going on for years.

    It's an Eric Holder thing, which makes it an Obama issue.

    It's time for our government, our court system, and the people of the United States to move the **** on from this issue and let Zimmerman get on with his life. It's over.

    You would have to change the law for that, which I would have no problem with.
    There are many things that could be changed but under our current laws though I can not agree simply because they are two separate jurisdictions.

    This is a racially motivated prosecution on Eric Holder's and Obama's part. Why else would they pursue this when there is no evidence that supports it?

    While it may be a product as you say, it is still a result of Obama through the acts of Holder.
    It pretty much is a black white issue being pursued by him. Racist?

    Fortunately, our judicial system doesn't work like that.

    In this specific instance yes. But this type of thing has been going since long before Obama was elected.

    This I agree with. I don't blame Obama for this although he did nothing to stop the fostering of the atmosphere. This is a Holder issue IMO.
