So are we now a nation held hostage by a racist and capricious administration? It appears so. Our fundamental right of equality before the law has been tossed into the dustbin of history as Obama's war on America rages on.

If Obama's Department of Justice makes good on Holder's promise to further persecute George Zimmerman, they will get the revolution they so desperately are agitating for.

"FBI records: agents found no evidence that Zimmerman was racist" By Frances Robles and Scott Hiaason | Miami Herald

After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman
murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating
factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday
show.

Even the lead detective in the case, Sanford Det. Chris
Serino, told agents that he thought Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because
of his attire and the circumstances — but not his race.

Serino saw Zimmerman as “having little hero complex, but not as a racist.”

The Duval County State Attorney released another collection of
evidence in the Zimmerman murder case Thursday, including reports from
FBI agents who investigated whether any racial bias was involved in
Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing.

The evidence includes bank surveillance videos from the day of the killing, crime scene photos and memos from prosecutors.

Among
the documents is a note from the prosecutor who said one of the
witnesses said her son, a minor, had felt pressured by investigators to
say the injured man he saw was wearing a red top. The boy’s testimony
had been considered key, because it backed up Zimmerman’s allegation
that he — wearing red — was being pummeled.

Federal agents
interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors and co-workers, but none said
Zimmerman had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26
shooting of Martin, a black teen, in a confrontation at a Sanford
housing complex. As Sanford police investigated the circumstances of
Martin’s death, the FBI opened a parallel probe to determine if Martin’s
civil rights had been violated.

Several co-workers said they had never seen Zimmerman display any prejudice or racial bias.

Two
co-workers told agents they spoke with Zimmerman the day after the
shooting, and both said they noticed injuries to Zimmerman’s nose and
the back of his head. One person said Zimmerman was “absolutely
devastated.”

Zimmerman told both colleagues that he followed
Martin — whom Zimmerman described as a “suspicious person” — so he could
tell police where the teen went, but was then “jumped” by Martin.
Zimmerman told both that Martin reached for Zimmerman’s gun before
Zimmerman shot Martin.

In all, the FBI interviewed 35 people about Zimmerman, from current and former co-workers to neighbors and an ex-girlfriend.

Among the revelations found in nearly 300 pages of records:


Zimmerman arrived at one of his police interviews with a friend who
works as an air marshal. That friend told police Zimmerman was
physically abused by his mother and had been estranged from his family.

• The day Zimmerman turned himself in to be charged with second-degree murder, authorities confiscated a handgun from his car.


A gun dealer called police to say that some time in mid-March,
Zimmerman called to say he was afraid for his life and “needed more
guns.”

• An ex-girlfriend said Zimmerman had outbursts and
sometimes threatened suicide. She suspected it was a result of Accutane,
the acne medicine he took. She said he was the “last person in the
world” she thought would be involved in such an incident.

• The ex
girlfriend said she and Zimmerman had a violent argument when she
caught him on a singles dating web site, even though they were engaged
to be married.

• Trayvon’s cousin said he would swear “on a stack
of bibles” that the person shouting in a 911 tape that recorded screams
during the struggle was Trayvon.

Zimmerman, 28, claims Trayvon
attacked him, breaking his nose and slamming his head on the concrete at
the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhouse complex. Specially appointed
prosecutors who investigated the case charged Zimmerman with
second-degree murder, which carries a potential life sentence.

The
state attorney’s office says Zimmerman wrongly assumed Trayvon was a
criminal, and says he did not suffer injuries serious enough to require
deadly force to defend himself.

The U.S. Department of Justice and
FBI stepped in about a month after the killing, as protesters
nationwide criticized the investigation. The original probe was
conducted by police in Sanford, the central Florida community where
Zimmerman lives and Trayvon was visiting while suspended from school.
