ZIMMERMAN TRIAL

Holder: Trayvon’s Death Was Unnecessary

In his first public statement since George Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder, Attorney General Eric Holder called Trayvon Martin's death tragic and unnecessary. Holder also said in his prepared remarks on Monday that Martin's killing opened up an opportunity to talk about complicated issues and for the people of America to try to understand one another better. The Justice Department announced on Sunday that it is reviewing whether to charge Zimmerman with criminal civil-rights violations.
