No person shall ... be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, or be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law...--Amendment V, United States ConstitutionIs it me, or does it sound like he wants the federal government to try Zimmerman for murdering Trayvon Martin, despite having been found not guilty? I understand that Martin's parents have the option of a wrongful death suit, but seriously? Putting him up on charges again for Martin's death is flat-out unconstitutional.
"I think that we clearly must move on to the next step in terms of the federal government and in terms of the civil courts." Al Sharpton, race-baiter extraordinaire
The man has already had his life taken in payment for his stupidity. His social security number has been published--meaning his identity has probably already been stolen. And he's unlikely to be issued a new one by a federal government that decided he was guilty of murder as soon as he'd pulled the trigger because he's "white" and Martin was black, never mind that Zimmerman's not white.
Zimmerman, with all of those out there after his head, is not going to survive the year. If someone doesn't murder him, he's going to wind up killing himself because he's never going to be able to leave this part of his past behind him.
Neither the progressives, the media, nor that certain segment of the population will permit it.
