    US Justice Department to review BART shooting

    LOS ANGELES -- The U.S. Department of Justice will conduct an independent review of the Johannes Mehserle case in order to determine whether or not the shooting merits federal prosecution, according the department.
    "The Justice Department has been closely monitoring the state's investigation and prosecution," the department said in a statement.

    "The Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office, and the FBI have an open investigation into the fatal shooting and, at the conclusion of the state's prosecution, will conduct an independent review of the facts and circumstances to determine whether the evidence warrants federal prosecution."

    So, because the State didn't find the man guilty as the Obama Admin wanted, they are going to try to make this a Federal Crime now?

    I'd say this proves that race trumps all in the Obama Dept. of Justice.

    Yet the Black Panther case will not be reviewed?

    This is pathetic.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    So let me get this straight


    People are trying to compare a few people standing outside a polling booth with a night stick to the shooting and killing of an unarmed man as being anywhere near the same level of importance
    Conservatives believe that the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will ensure it is

    Both cases the issue is race.

    In one case somebody was killed

    The other case somebody held a night stick in a meanacing manner

    I know which one I would want the government to spend resources on

    If it were the Klan standing outside those polling booths, it'd be different, don't you think?

    Holder is a racist.

    Oh I don't know... maybe they should have investigated BEFORE the state trial. They don't like the verdict so they do this.
