New documents reveal Justice Department collusion in Trayvon protests

Thousands of taxpayer dollars spent to train protesters and foment unrest.

Your tax dollars at work, ladies and gentlemen: Judicial Watch used its trusty Freedom of Information Act crowbar to pry some more documents from the Most Transparent Administration in History, and what do you know, Obama’s Justice Department was¬†actively helping to organize demonstrations and spread civil unrest.

Judicial Watch, Inc. (Judicial Watch) on April 24, 2012 launched an investigation into the Trayvon Martin case based on reports that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) had sent a secret team of ‚??peacekeepers‚?Ě to Sanflord, Florida, where Martin was shot on February 26, 2012 after wandering in a gated community after dark.¬† George Zimmerman, a resident of the community and its neighborhood watch captain, is currently on trial for Martin‚??s death though he maintains he acted in self-defense.

Records obtained by Judicial Watch in response to local, state and federal public records requests show that the so-called peacekeepers are part of a large and growing division within DOJ called the Community Relations Service (CRS).¬† Though CRS purports to spot and quell racial tensions nationwide before they arise, the documents obtained by Judicial Watch show the group actively worked to foment unrest, spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on travel and hotel rooms to train protesters throughout Florida.¬† The peacekeepers also met with officials of the Republican National Convention, scheduled for several months later in Tampa, to warn them to expect protests in connection with Martin‚??s death.

Let me get this straight: they met with the RNC organizers to warn them about protests from the very same agitators DOJ spent thousands of dollars training?

The¬†Daily Caller¬†notes that one of the rallies assisted by your tax-funded public servants was headlined by racial arsonist Al Sharpton. ¬†You’re welcome, America.

This “large and growing division” of taxpayer-funded saboteurs needs to be de-funded immediately, and it’s probably time to give Attorney General Eric Holder another chance to commit perjury before Congress. ¬†He has a certain flair for it.
