U.S. Department Of Justice And FBI Will Investigate Trayvon Martin Killing Because Local Cops Refuse To Do What's Right

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad Sad

Tarayvon FBI

Such a horrible tragedy at the hands of an unapologetic, self-appointed, over-eager neighborhood watch leader. We can't even handle the fact that nobody in the local authorities will look into it — because the shooter claims it was self defense.

Even though Trayvon Martin was just holding skittles and a drink.

Luckily, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and the FBI are going to investigate!

Here's what the County State Attorney had to say:

“I share in the desire of the family and the community to accurately collect and evaluate all the facts surrounding the tragic death of Trayvon Martin. That is why I directed the expeditious review of the investigation which was delivered by the Sanford Police Department one week ago today….I will also be utilizing the investigative resources of the Seminole County Grand Jury which will be called to session on Tuesday, April 10, 2012.’’

Here's what the Justice Department says:

“The department will conduct a thorough and independent review of all of the evidence and take appropriate action at the conclusion of the investigation. The department also is providing assistance to and cooperating with the state officials in their investigation into the incident. With all federal civil rights crimes, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person acted intentionally and with the specific intent to do something which the law forbids — the highest level of intent in criminal law. Negligence, recklessness, mistakes and accidents are not prosecutable under the federal criminal civil rights laws.”

We can't tell you how happy it makes us that others are going to look into this. It's a shame so much time has passed — who knows how accurate all the evidence is too.

Either way, something is being done. Finally.

    My friend is the cousin to Trayvon and the Tampa News crew interviewed the family last night. I was in tears watching as the reporter asked my friend about Trayvon. I am so glad that hopefully justice will prevail.

    There is no such thing as a "county state attorney," you cretin, and it's not that the local cops "refuse to do what's right." Leave it to a loser hack like you to put a negative spin on this. And you say you're not a manipulative, bullying shithead anymore? Shall we add "liar" to your ever growing list of negative traits? STFU Mario, and stop deluding yourself into thinking you have brains or talent. The real tragedy of this story is that YOU weren't the one shot.

    It makes me sick hearing the 911 tape and hearing this young man crying for help probably looking at the gun that ended his life. He must have been so afraid. Prayers and thoughts to his family and friends. I am just hoping that the wannabe "Wyatt Eyrp" gets his day in court. He shot that young man in cold blood.

    This is the fuckary black men have to deal with every damn day being considered a treat or folks thinking you should not even be walking through they're neighborhood. How could a grown ass man be afraid of someone smaller than he was? The guy who killed Trayvon is a person of color also , just messed up. Am not crazy about neighborhood watch groups, we all want safe neighborhoods but this is the kind of mess that can happen when folks sterotype. Am sick an tired of young black men being shot down by some trigger happy cop or misguided punks like the guy who murdered Trayvon.

    When the two African American teens burned the white child and stated "You got what you deserved, whitey" There wasn't this much outrage.

  6. 6

    This story is such a crock
    You know whenever you see Al Sharpton's name attache to a story,that old rasin face is out to stir the pot
    The victim was black, the shooter is a hispanic jew
    Al Sharptons history with Jews goes back more than 30 years to Brooklyn

    He called him a coon before he shot him and I heard the kid tried running away and he went after him. So sad. I used to live in Sanford. This is all so sad. Hopefully he pays for what he did. He isn't even in jail.

    Re: thebigboot – When did this happe?. And you're right about when its a white kid its not that big of a deal. I believe its in Sanford actually or Ovideo Fl kids from liberty high school …..SEVEN of them….ALL BLACK……jumped a white girl on her first day on the bus so bad she blacked out and got a concussion but they wont charge them w a hate crime and ALL they got was expelled. That is so effed up. It would be NATIONAL news if it was a little black kid. Dont get me wrong the guy who did this to this kid should be locked up but there is such a double standard in this country. There are no equal rights. And they think they get the bad end of the stick. You say racism and Al Sharpton is right there ready to march regardless of the facts.

    the sad part is hundreds of black kids are shot and killed daily by other black kids and there is complete silence. no sharpton, no jackson, no obama screaming about the injustice. no liberal media hype trying to end the cycle. liberals suck.

    Re: buck – exactly

  11. 11

    The cops told the fool to STOP following the kid but he kept going. He seemed like he was on a mission. He SHOULD be in trouble. The kid had a pack of skittles in his had. How sad. The cops were there within mins so WHY did the dbag feel compelled to shoot the kid? He needs to be locked up.

  12. 12

    When you have a loser like Sharpton getting involved you know that the spin is going to be all hearsay and his racist crap….bottom line is that no doubt a smart ass punk ni@#*r got his ass handed to him

  13. 13

    That racist son of a bitch should get what's coming to him. It's a sad day when police are o.k. with this senseless murder. If it was a white kid I bet there would have been a different outcome. That is what's so sad about it.

  14. 14

    The only thing that scares me more than what happened to Trayvon is the hate I see on here. I am sorry for the person who feels they need to attack the host Perez personally, why do you come on here? And for the person who is upset about the two black kids burning the white, really? Saying that shows you only see race. What I see is many children being hurt, and no one doing the right thing. So sad and frightening.

  15. 15

    some of these comments are making me really sick. though i tink race may have played a part. the bigger pciture is someone took the law into their own hands, after being told not to follow this child. The man is sick. and he was obviously looking for trouble. which caused a childs life. and no one has done anything about it. he got to go home after murdering someone. look at the bigger picture before leaving your thoughtless comments

  16. 16

    This particular case calls for a little street justice.

  17. barb says – reply to this


    They should, throw the sicko in jail. This is so very sad.

    Re: Bluey67 – You're exactly right. Some of these comments are so sad and full of hatred…

  19. 19

    Re: Bluey67 – ……Perez Hilton is a caricature of a human being, utterly devoid of any redeeming qualities. I have yet to discover a reason why anyone with an IQ above room temperature would take an interest in him, his doings, or his opinions.

    You used to go to Perez Hilton's gossip site regularly for amusement but now you become completely tired of the political comments he makes. Interesting note, I always check out the "comments" section after one of his political posts and thankfully the majority posting comments lambaste him regularly for his idiotic leftist uneducated views.

  20. 20

    Look into his eyes…. they are young, fresh , innocent and if it is true that the eyes are the window to the soul… then his young man looks so kind, and hardly a threat. Hope that justice is served, never should have happened however in the first p lace. Love, respect and hugs to his grieving family.

  21. 21

    And no comments that the shooter was Latino? NONE? You bag on everyone else here and praise the shit out of those Latinas who do so well — but you won't even admit that this guy called Trayvon a n*****r before shooting him

  22. 22

    Re: Lincoln1 – yeah, I can tell by your hateful and bigoted comments, its b/c of people like you that we have such crimes happen in the first place, and a derelict police dept that instead of serving, protecting and upholding the law, go against their sworn oath and waste my tax dollars by NOT doing their dam jobs. I can't wait for the day when something horrible like this happens to people like yourself and YOUR families, and then just maybe you'll be careful next time when you choose to open your careless mouth.

  23. 23

    The Grand Jury will indict the wannabe cop turned lunatic neighborhood watch idiot! This young man was a good kid who was murdered…

  24. 24

    Considering Perez is both Latin & gay am kinda surprised at how many retarded bigots leave pointless useless comments. Write all the nasty inhumane crap you want your the ones who clearly are miserable human beings who actually have to live with yourselves, that has to suck big time

  25. 25

    Re: Lincoln1 – If you do not like him so much then stop looking at his website! Whenever someone is killed justice needs to be served. It does not matter about race, age, gender, etc. This is a blog where Perez has the right to state his own opinion and people go on here to read it. If it bugs you that much then just stop reading and logging on

    I hope that the man that murdered this poor kid gets life in prison. It is terrifying to know that people like Zimmerman are out there owning guns. Not only should he be punished, but this "self defense" law needs to be examined. Knowing this country people will say we need more guns. not less. I find it amazing that when a tragedy happens in places like the UK, they tighten laws to protect people, here morons want it to be like the wild west. I feel so bad for this family. Racism is alive and well, black President or not. :(

  27. 27

    There is something shady about Mr. Zimmerman Although I am not from Florida, I have learned that under the "Stand Your Ground Law" you can not claim self-defense if you are moving toward (i.e. chasing) the perpetrator. Also, are neighborhood watch members allowed to be armed?

  28. @v@ says – reply to this


    Do you think that's why they're stepping in? There's been a massive negative response, and it could be a matter of national security (violent backlash) if the sense of injustice is not dealt with.

  29. 29

    The only thing that scares me more than this story, is the majority of comments under it. Everyone going on and on about race. Who cares about race! A grown man shot and killed a child over apparently nothing. I personally don't care if the kid was blue and the shooter was purple. He did it. End of story. Someone deal with this clearly mentally unstable pitiful excuse of a human being.
