Barack Obama’s Justice Department reportedly is looking into filing Civil Rights charges against George Zimmerman. Does our country really need this administration, which was supposed to heal our racial wounds, to reopen them? It is an unfortunate, even tragic case, but it is not a racial case, and the administration ought to be encouraging respect for the jury’s decision. The prosecution came nowhere near proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman committed murder. I fear Mr. Obama, who has a dreadful record as president, is planning to use Trayvon Martin as a means to whip up his dispirited base next year.
