Citizen watchdogs light up Justice Department’s #ZimmermanTipLine

Things have been quiet for the citizen thought police ever since AttackWatch.com closed up shop, but vigilantes seeking justice for Trayvon Martin were given a new job today as the Justice Department announced its dedicated email address for tips into its investigation into George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was acquitted by a jury Saturday night, but Attorney General Eric Holder has teased that he’s still very interested in pursuing an investigation into possible civil rights violations.

Of course, the FBI already conducted an investigation into Zimmerman, interviewing friends, neighbors and co-workers, and found no evidence of racism. NBC’s damning 911 call turned out to be edited, so that’s no help. The only logical step, then, is a nationwide fishing expedition for anonymous tips that might hint otherwise.

The #ZimmermanTipLine has already lit up with tweeters doing their best to help. Think really hard now … are you sure you don’t remember anything suspicious about Zimmerman?

Try harder, people. Eric Holder really needs this.
