Attorney General Eric Holder disusses Trayvon Martin killing

Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday that the Justice Department will take appropriate action in the killing of Trayvon Martin if it finds evidence that a federal criminal civil rights crime has been committed.

The attorney general made the comment in an appearance before a civil rights organization founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Holder says the department will conduct a thorough and independent review of the evidence in the Martin matter.

The attorney general says one of the department’s top priorities is preventing and combating youth violence and victimization.

The Justice Department launched an investigation of the killing three weeks ago.

Holder told the 14th annual convention of the National Action Network that “many of you are greatly — and rightly — concerned” about the shooting death of the 17-year-old Martin.

    Mission from God . Trayvon dad said he is standing for all of the other Trayvons . People just look at all of the undercover and underhanded illegal method that has been and still happening in this murder case. The longer they take the more is coming out. I believe with all of my heart God has this in his hand even if they try to drop charges this murder will go down in history and millions will get blessed. Our baby death will not be in vain. To God be the glory.
