Zimmerman family asks Holder why no Black Panther arrests
This is a question I've been wondering myself. Here we have a racist organization literally putting a bounty of $10,000 on the head of George Zimmerman - dead or alive - and Eric Holder has done nothing. The New Black Panthers are inciting violence against a private US citizen while stoking the fires of race hatred and the Attorney General - the highest ranking law enforcement official in the country - stays mum and inactive.
Is it because of Holder's race that he refuses to arrest the Black Panthers? Zimmerman's family thinks so.
In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, a family member of George Zimmerman asked the nation's top law enforcement officer why he has chosen to not arrest members of the New Black Panther Party for their rhetoric -- some of which may fit the federal government's definition of a hate crime -- throughout the Trayvon Martin case.
The family member believes the reason Holder hasn't made those arrests is because he, like the members of the New Black Panther Party, is black.
"I am writing you to ask you why, when the law of the land is crystal clear, is your office not arresting the New Black Panthers for hate crimes?" the family member wrote to Holder.
"The Zimmerman family is in hiding because of the threats that have been made against us, yet the DOJ has maintained an eerie silence on this matter. These threats are very public. If you haven't been paying attention just do a Google search and you will find plenty. Since when can a group of people in the United States put a bounty on someone's head, circulate Wanted posters publicly, and still be walking the streets?"
The New Black Panthers have issued ultimatums to the Sanford authorities, saying they want Zimmerman arrested "dead or alive." They have placed a bounty on Zimmerman's head, and have called for the building of an army of vigilantes to track him down and effect a citizen's arrest.
Most recently, the New Black Panther Party has called for violence.
What is it about the New Black Panther Party that keeps Eric Holder from prosecuting them? He dropped charges against them for standing outside of a polling place and threatening white voters with clubs. And now, he stays silent as they whip up a frenzy of hate against George Zimmerman - a man not arrested or convicted of any crime.
Accusing the attorney general of racism is a serious charge but Holder has brought it on himself by being curiously inactive while the New Black Panther Party stalks George Zimmerman.
