Surviving Zimmerman: Don't Protest The DOJ Search For Tips
The Justice Department has assigned a special e-mail address for the public to send tips regarding George Zimmerman, as the Department ramps up its investigation (and possibly tries to build a criminal case) into whether Zimmerman violated the civil rights of Trayvon Martin.
Some conservatives, enraged by the prosecution in state court, have proposed sending an e-mail to that same address. This is highly stupid, to be frank. Anyone stupid enough to do this -- and there are plenty of them -- is also stupid enough to ignore the "Don't Feed The Animals" signs at the zoo.
You risk prosecution for obstruction of justice by sending anything that isn't a bonafide tip. The risk of prosecution far outweighs any strategic benefit that might be realized by any action or protest you plan. Besides, that e-mail address will soon be clogged with messages of vitriol for Zimmerman. If we couldn't find Bin Laden for ten years and can't find some young whippersnapper now hiding in Russia, what makes you so afraid that the feds will find (never mind, use) one juicy legitimate tip out of the thousands of messages that mailbox has assuredly already gotten? I believe the Justice Department will never get anything useful from this e-mail solicitation -- and if it does, it won't be able to find it or use it.
