Also with us tonight former federal prosecutor -- wheels serving as.
Executive assistant -- the US attorney's office of principal deputy.
Chief minority investigative counsel for the House Judiciary Committee also an adjunct professor at New York Law School.
And attorney John -- -- abortion channel hundreds of cases as a criminal defense attorney also served in the San Diego's city attorney's office.
-- division and the office of the US attorney.
In the drug task force and -- public units we want to thank all of you for being here.
I wanna start by me John which you -- this is we have just heard the attorney general the United States say something was terribly wrong.
In Sanford Florida that his that -- is an ongoing investigation that started a year ago.
And will be moving forward your reaction.
Well first of all this is what I would if I could ask him anything I would ask this what about this jury's decision.
Does he not trust it is either day.
They -- too stupid beat David two female -- speed they were too white to get it right because I'm going to trust in their decision -- trust.
The ladies that spent two weeks in this courtroom and 1816 to eighteen hours deliberating.
Before they came to a decision that Jordan Zimmermann was not guilty I'm going to trust that because that's what this country was built on why can't -- that's what I would and it.
I don't think they were there in the courtroom.
And I certainly don't think that you were watching this trial from the beginning and watching it like we are -- We analyzed evidence from the very beginning of this thing just -- women analyze the evidence as it went through that after the inventory list all of this.
It is mind boggling to me that that attorney general our country would be -- time the money the resource is everything all of our national attention and sort of it's feeding -- -- -- that a we're gonna convene a grand jury what you know what they should convene a grand jury at the state level they did not do that because it didn't want to see the light of day on these charges now -- grand jury if it's can be -- -- telling -- they are not -- return -- true -- after -- -- Panel from her at all bull I think what.
Let me turn if I may entered into her -- Christian Adams and they're they're race in this Justice Department seems to be a difficult thing.
This is after all the attorney general who said that we are a nation essentially of cowards when it comes to race but he is the man who seems to have the most difficulty.
With the issue of race even the word race Christian Adams.
-- of all the outrageous conduct of Eric Holder of the comments today might be -- most outrageous.
Because he's injecting himself racially.
Into a case -- -- balls and Americans hit the liberty.
Is liberty where a jury is already found him innocent not guilty of the charges.
He's thrown -- back into this the jury disagrees with Eric Holder the jury looked at the evidence but for him to conjure up the civil rights movement.
And to put this in that the -- line of the civil rights movement is beyond disgraceful it's what we've come to expect from him but don't forget Lou.
This is the guy that carries around in his wallet a race card it literally is a quote.
From a preacher that said races the single issues that defines a person.
And wouldn't holder was asked about it he said I have common cause with the black criminal.
He's been carrying this around for decades this is a man is not fit to be the attorney general.
You have also.
Said that this is typical of Eric Holder -- of this administration.
To say one thing and act in an entirely different manner.
You think this is another example of that modus operandi.
It is what what holder is doing today and we'll keep doing is sending signals to the career attorneys in the civil rights division.
They'll be looking at this.
Under federal law you have to prove racial intent.
He's sending signals to them.
That he wants them to do something he's done this before on other occasions.
And it's totally inappropriate it totally games the system.
But these people are about power there about.
Representing racial interest groups to achieve a political and not to do justice effectively -- racial dog whistles within the United States Department of Justice.
John -- do you concur.
Absolutely I think anybody who is outraged by the -- -- Did not pay attention that this trial just like that that earlier if you were watching it like we were watching it if you saw the evidence as it unfolded.
You would actually agree that this was -- just verdict so to go out on this plan and call and call the killing of Trayvon Martin instead of calling it unfortunate which is what it was.
To call it unnecessary.
Stewart Zimmerman at the killing of tape on Martin was a necessary -- -- Even -- and look at the law to a -- of the standard is so much higher for civil rights violation you have to prove.
That is specific intent that he went out that night that he purposely went out after -- on Martin why because of race solely because of race not because of self defense nothing like that these women in the state court they didn't find that they couldn't find a lower standard of malice intent and you know -- your heart they couldn't find it -- to find a higher standard.
To put this in proportion as we conclude here.
The number of people demonstrating.
And these are the latest -- In Los Angeles eighty people.
In Oakland 100 people in Sacramento forty Miami 200 in Atlanta.
75 people demonstrating against this verdict.
In Chicago 200 and New York -- is a thousand but that is -- well the question -- but because so many people work.
In Times Square that this we're told that there is the third and should be separated from the demonstrators.
-- and the further.
Proportion that we would like to remind everyone.
The jury found that there was a reasonable doubt on both of these -- manslaughter second degree murder.
That is the conclusion of the juror right to have a challenges.
Well at best.
We'll just -- it interesting judgment on the part of -- nation's chief law enforcement officers he.
Presumed to attack the integrity of our judicial system thank you wall Christian man and -- we'll just build more.
