Unless Holder believes the government's hate crime laws empower federal prosecution of the accused in every murder in the country, he has no business wasting another second on the Zimmerman case. Holder and his boss in the White House are free to use Martin's death to promote their own political agenda, just as they did with the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. Similarly, they can advocate changes to Florida's Stand Your Ground law, even though Zimmerman did not invoke that defense. A better use of Holder's time would be figuring out why so many young black men keep being shot to death in Chicago despite it having the most stringent gun control laws in America.
