Zimmerman family member's letter to Eric Holder

In the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting, the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) has done its level best to incite a race war while placing a bounty on the head of George Zimmerman. In a sane world, this is a felony. It's also something else; it's the second time that Eric Holder's Justice Department has turned a blind eye to the criminal behavior of the NBPP. The first time was on election day in 2008, when King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson stood outside of a polling station in military garb, intimidating voters; Shabazz was wielding a night stick.

The DOJ's refusal to arrest or even comment on the egregious actions of NBPP members in Florida raises very serious concerns about Holder's allegiances. A member of the Zimmerman family has officially called the Attorney General out on the issue in the form of a letter to Holder.

Via the Daily Caller:
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?”
I ask what seems to me at least, to be a logical question: Where is the most powerful Republican Party member who is in office today, John Boehner?

Here is the entire letter to Holder. Apparently, a private citizen who is related to Zimmerman, has more courage than the Speaker of the House, who should have been the one to write this letter and post it to his website.

Video: why NBC's 911 Edit of Zimmerman 911 call no mistake

Pajamas Media has put together a video demonstration that shows what it would take for George Zimmerman's 911 call to morph into something racist from something racially innocuous. The official position of NBC is that the edit was an accident, not deliberate. That doesn't just strain credulity; it further implicates the culture at NBC as opposed to the actions of one person. Put simply, it's a lie.

Via PJM:
In the edit booth, whether the editor was working with Final Cut Pro, as our editor was, or Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid or Audacity or Soundbooth — whatever the editing platform used — the Zimmerman edit took several steps. The audio track had to be placed on a timeline for editing. In and out  points had to be set around the words that the editor wanted to remove. Then the editor had to remove those words with a delete action. Then the resulting edit had to be smoothed over, probably with a crossfade, to remove pops or abrupt changes in the background noise.
As someone who uses both Audacity and Adobe Audition on a near daily basis, I can absolutely attest to what this video asserts. There is no question the Zimmerman 911 call was intentionally edited to portray him as racist. Again, the assertion on the  part of NBC that it wasn't, only further damages NBC. This cannot be allowed to just go away.

The Zimmerman 911 edit was on par with a major media outlet yelling, "FIRE!" in a crowded theater.

If NBC continues to allege that the edit was a mistake, perhaps it's time they explain exactly how such a mistake was made in a way similar to this video below.
