The public-interest law firm Judicial Watch recently revealed that according to documents acquired via a FOIA request, Justice Department employees were sent to the Orlando area in the wake of the controversial shooting of Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman.
According to the documents, Justice Department personnel assigned to the Community Relations Service were sent to the Sanford, Florida area. According to Judicial Watch, the documents revealed that hundreds of dollars were spent on things like providing “support for protest deployment in Florida” and “to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”
Meanwhile, Breitbart News reported that Federal and state officials are making preparations for “civil unrest” as the two sides begin to make their closing arguments. Did the Obama Administration stoke tensions in the Zimmerman case?
