It appears that black cops were out to get George Zimmerman. And I don't mean just Eric "My People" Holder.
Recent reports show tha,t besides organizing the baseless firing of white police chief Bill Lee who saw no evidence of a crime in the shooting of the thug Trayvon Martin, blacks had the lead detective, who at one point apparently wanted Zimmerman charged, demoted.
And the attack on white officers was organized in conjunction with a group of black officers on the Sanford Police Department, who wanted Zimmerman arrested for being white and having the temerity to shoot a black criminal.

Telling the FBI that he was concerned that people inside the police department were leaking information, Serino cited Sgt. Arthur Barnes, officers Rebecca Villalona and Trekelle Perkins “as all pressuring him to file charges against Zimmerman after the incident,” an FBI report said. “Serino did not believe he had enough evidence at the time to file charges.”
The summary of Serino’s statement does not mention the race of the officers who allegedly pressured him, but sources told The Miami Herald that Barnes and Perkins are black, and Villalona is married to an African-American man. All three, the source said, had been called in by their supervisor and questioned about leaking information in the case...
In his FBI interview, Serino accused Sgt. Barnes of being “friendly” with Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father. He said Tracy Martin at first understood why no charges were filed, but later changed coursse and accused Zimmerman of racial profiling.
Crump denied that Tracy Martin ever changed postures. Martin, he said, sought legal counsel the very day Serino told him no charges would be filed.
Records released Thursday show that Sgt. Barnes, a 25-year veteran of the department, told the FBI that he believed the black community would be “in an uproar” if Zimmerman was not charged. “The community will be satisfied if an arrest takes place,” the FBI quoted him saying. Barnes “felt the shooting was not racially motivated, but it was a man shooting an unarmed kid.”
The internal machinations of the case appear to becoming curiouser and curiouser. It appears that Serino has changed his tune, from previously appearing to be the voice for additional charges against Zimmerman, to now being the voice of reason. Quite strange. Perhaps he at one time thought he could be seen as a respectable white person, but apparently he learned that the "civil rights" community and black colleauges can turn on you on a dime.
But despite the rantings of the racists, Zimmerman was arrested that night on charges of unlawful discharge of a firearm and taken in handcuffs to the police station. And note that arrest was unlawful and violated Zimmerman's civil rights, as the law allows discharging of firearms in self-defense.
But the real story is that black cops don't recognize that to arrest someone, you must have probable cause that a crime was committed, not just to satisfy the racist black community.
I hope that anyone arrested by Sgt. Barnes gets a good attorney and files civil rights lawsuits for false arrest. He and Eric Holder appear to think that being white is a crime and that arrests can be made for political reasons.
