Can't beat having your own free DOJ legal team to advise you.
A largely unknown group of Justice Department officials has inserted itself into the local Florida protest movement surrounding the killing of Trayvon Martin, assisting the protestors and attending their meetings and rallies.

While the officials are tasked with preventing racial violence, it appears that in carrying out their duties, they have provided significant assistance to those protesting the killing of Martin, who black, by George Zimmerman, who is half white and half Hispanic.

The officials are members of the DOJ’s Community Relations Service, also known as “The Peacemakers,” a special unit established under the 1964 Civil Rights Act and empowered to act to mitigate local tensions between ethnic groups.

Looks like this article explains that Holder's DOJ is here to prosecute "hate crimes" after receiving more "power" after last year's passage of the Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Finally! We now know what they're up there for! We've all been wondering why nothing else is getting prosecuted! They're only there for white (hispanic) on black crime!

I'd like some background on this group. Who started it and when, etc. All they said was it "expanded" under Obama.

Lyndon Johnson in 1964 as part of the Civil Rights Act.
