That is sort of what is happening in the case of George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty by a jury of murder and manslaughter after shooting dead Trayvon Martin while being beaten by him on the ground.
Having seen prosecutors and the media do everything they could to paint Zimmerman as a racist and position that as the reason he allegedly ‘racially profiled’ Martin leading to him following Martin, then getting involved in an altercation in which a shot was fired – yet a jury considering the evidence deciding Zimmerman was innocent of the charges – the DOJ have apparetly set up an email address to receive tips from the public about Zimmerman in the hope of harvesting evidence that would enable them to launch another prosecution against him for civil rights violations.
The DOJ appears determined to keep up its witch hunt against Zimmerman until somehow he is deprived of his liberty. The answer of the jury was not the one they wanted to see.
Separately and in a classic example of contrasting fortunes – something that is also in keeping with mendacious EU habit of protecting their friends when it suits them – the DOJ has announced that it will not prosecute the US Internal Revenue Service (equivalent of HMRC).
This follows allegations that the IRS improperly accessed or disclosed the tax information of conservative political candidates standing against Democrat Party representatives, after it exclusively targeted Democrat opponents for politically motivated tax audits and investigations.
Justice is supposed to be blind. However, increasingly in the US it is just another political tool to be deployed in service of agendas that play to the biases and interests of the Democrat Party and their affiliated organisations and campaign groups. Zimmerman is being harrassed and victimised in disgraceful fashion by the DOJ at the behest of the Democrat leaning civil rights movement, while the IRS is having its outrageous behaviour in support of the Democrats swept under the carpet.
Tammany Hall must have been moved to Washington DC. The stench of corruption is overpowering.
