By -- talk show host David Webb towards government courses but acquitted of all charges -- NAACP says this case is far from over.
David they're now calling on the Justice Department on to bring civil rights charges of some kind.
Against George Zimmerman highlighting.
The fact that this is really become a racially charged case.
Was it from the beginning do you think this is inherently.
There wasn't a racial case it was a local issue -- a tragedy that OK Bob Morton was killed that these two elements came together.
It became a national case one when President Obama injected himself by saying if I had a -- -- look like -- -- And when Ben -- pulled out the old -- -- -- he calls it.
And brought in Jessie Jackson Roslyn Brock from the NAACP.
Turner Clayton local NAACP chapter president.
Misuse and from the Amy Baptist Church they got together Joseph Madison Mark Thompson they turned this -- to justice and due process.
But -- to justice based on a black victim narrative let's talk let's listen to Ben crime he -- -- -- -- Martin family attorney and here's what he says he says it was it was race and it started from the beginning.
Everybody -- within that -- And tell everybody who -- I am Trey -- His family.
Expressed their heart -- Gratitude.
-- happened to him these past seventeen months the whole -- was looking at this case.
For a reason and what people wanted to see as we -- say it.
How far we have come in America and matters of equal justice as certainly as we helps.
We'll be -- -- to it.
This silent since we did acknowledge the racial undertones in this case so we have the held.
There responsible conversations about how we -- better as a country and move forward from this tragedy and learn from it.
Ben -- says you're being intellectually dishonest.
Bring -- for saying that this is not a a conversation about race Ben -- in 2006.
The Martin Lee Anderson case.
Black teen -- -- killed at a juvenile camp.
Young pictures of him he brings an Al Sharpton Jesse Jackson and then senator Barack Obama.
This is his play book which he talked about with the Orlando sentinel his words that he's using the same playbook and I'm paraphrasing.
Except all of this coming -- it was it was a racial case because well we've at first blush all we knew.
Was -- an unarmed black teenager was followed.
And -- No but -- in the way we didn't because what did he say in the 911 call when he was asked by the operator.
A lot of dark rainy night Zimmerman couldn't identify whether he was black Hispanic or whatever he was following -- wanted to.
Great block -- which is what and to -- and edited together to make it sound as -- that was the first set was so the first information we don't so it was erroneous needing.
There was much more to the content was much more to it but that's what we knew that's why it felt like a racial -- right.
But then that wasn't taking it look it's a law enforcement issue at that point -- -- I'd have always said from the beginning the due process needs to play out here.
But it became more racial when you have the march is not for justice.
But for a particular type of justice when you look at the -- action that happened even from people like -- weigh -- and others last night.
This is not about -- this this is about -- perceived type of justice and in our system black or white.
Trevor -- a black -- 69 year old black man shoots 841 year old white man in Florida searched the stand your ground defense.
That is back at work after posting bond the following Monday.
That also happened where was the outrage then -- if it's against stand your ground there should be outraged there there should be some civil rights violation but it's -- justice they want.
-- because it's it immediately fits into this 1955 template when the -- thing we heard was black.
Mail under -- shot by white guy so then you know it's it's Bull Connor vs the protesters I mean it's just every cliche.
Emerges right away and where -- reasonable people say well hold on let's take each crime or incident on its own term.
But we never -- -- details had he not been charged all we knew where these broad brush strokes which was unarmed black teenager with scandals in his pocket but every right -- that's street.
Was shot by you know but -- -- we thought white guy Hispanic got for no reason so we needed to know the DTL.
Adam Adam climber that I -- I think truly green that we need to examine this and have the details but that was a little was put forward Zimmerman not a typically Hispanic name.
Therefore a white Hispanic white washed pictures being used by some of those media outlets.
On top of that they used profile in the prosecutor's office -- profiling.
Profiling is not age charts and instrument to be used in charge and for second degree murder they were set it up -- narrative themselves there was a political aspect.
Then you look at the community relations service that dot DOJ unit.
It's been around since 1964.
It's down there and as we now have from FOIA request.
Down their spending money to facilitate rallies again Zimmerman we have emails we have a median in the church we have the firing bill he.
Of chief Billy.
By the way that rally facilitated by the community relations service who.
Made it possible they spent the money literally.
Taxpayer -- and it's about the small amount it's a fact that there -- not supposed to be involved in this became political ads.
