Docs: Justice Department facilitated anti-Zimmerman protests



WASHINGTON D.C. - A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.


The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.


CRS spent $674.14 between March 25-27 related to having been “deployed to Sanford, FL, to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.” CRS spent another $1,142.84 for the same purpose between March 25-28.


    • Do your “facts” include that the CRS was created with the 1964 Civil Rights Act and they have been dispatched to literally hundreds of areas around the country over the years if it looked as though civil disruptions might occur? And that upon those dispatches, they actively seek out the local law enforcement community and local politicians as well as any possible instigators of riots or other acts of civil disobedience in the hopes of creating a dialogue to avoid problems? No, you simply reposted 1/2 or 1/3 of some snippet from some Rush Limbaugh-esque type who wants to make sure people stay scared of the big black boogie man in the oval office….is that a black helicopter over your office? Better run….

  1. More right-wing, nutjob “reporting”….Keep up the paranoia Desert Review….watch out for the jack-booted thugs, they ARE coming to get you!
