FLORIDA, July 10, 2013 — According to documents released earlier today by the anti-corruption, conservative organization Judicial Watch, a little-known division of the Justice Department sent agents to the central Florida port city of Sanford in order to deal with community relations after Trayon Martin’s fatal shooting last year.

“Records obtained by Judicial Watch in response to local, state and federal public records requests show that the so-called peacekeepers are part of a large and growing division within DOJ called the Community Relations Service (CRS),” the group reported.

“Though CRS purports to spot and quell racial tensions nationwide before they arise, the documents obtained by Judicial Watch show the group actively worked to foment unrest, spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on travel and hotel rooms to train protestors throughout Florida. The peacekeepers also met with officials of the Republican National Convention, scheduled for several months later in Tampa, to warn them to expect protests in connection with Martin’s death.”

Bryan Preston of Pajamas Media summed up JW’s investigation by linking to documents the group released as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request.

He wrote that “(a)mong JW’s findings:

March 25 – 27, 2012, CRS spent $674.14 upon being ‘deployed to Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.’

March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 ‘in Sanford, FL ‘to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.’

March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL ‘to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.’

March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent an additional $751.60 in Sanford, FL ‘to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.’

April 3 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $1,307.40 in Sanford, FL ‘to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford.’

April 11-12, 2012, CRS spent $552.35 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17 year old African American male.’ Expenses for employees to travel, eat, sleep?

“The civil rights arm of the Dept. of Justice is now a modern leveraging or enforcement mechanism to insure the aggrieved are paid off as well as protected,” Sundance, a writer at The Conservative Tree House, a popular blog which features detailed coverage of the Goerge Zimmerman trial, mentioned last week.

“The legal terms such as ‘adverse impact,’ ‘disparate treatment’ and others, have been corrupted to apply to black skin color as the common denominator for the application being reviewed.

“The protective agency, who guards the optics of the BGI, is the Community Relations Service (CRS), also known as the DOJ ‘Peacekeepers.’ The primary role of the CRS Peacekeepers is to protect the image of the Black Grievance Industry. They do this by keeping the public unaware of the consequences of the BGI activity and at the same time telling the BGI to put down the molotov cocktails because they can be too easily seen.

“The CRS is a federally protected super-secret agency within the DOJ who operate with stealth immunity on behalf of black citizens. To the public face the CRS will claim their interests are to represent, and look out for, minority interests. However, in actual application their only engagements are facilitations around persons of black skin color.” 

The DoJ has yet to issue a statement about JW’s document release.
