The Department of Justice is pursuing the case. On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder explained, "We are resolved, as you are, to combat violence involving or directed at young people, to prevent future tragedies and to deal with the underlying attitudes, mistaken beliefs and stereotypes that serve as the basis for these too common incidents." Holder seems unaware that the FBI investigated but found no evidence of racial bias on the part of Zimmerman.
Martin's parents have every right to sue Zimmerman in civil court for the wrongful death of their unarmed son.
But the Department of Justice should respect the jury and its verdict. The government doesn't get to keep trying this guy until some jury finds him guilty.
