DOJ won’t charge Zimmerman, Twitter explodes — ABC revives baby face picture

After years of the Justice Department is set to finally give up the pursuit of federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

According to ABC News, the DOJ is planning to inform the Martin family of their its decision not to not charge Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Martin, 17, during a confrontation in Sanford, Fla., in 2012.

The shooting sparked national protests and a highly publicized criminal trial  in which Zimmerman was acquitted of murder.

Now, federal investigators have decided what many have known all along. That there isn’t enough evidence to charge Zimmerman with violating Martin’s civil rights when he shot him, ABC News reported.

The news comes two days before the three-year anniversary of the shooting.

ABC’s tweet announcing the news drew ridicule from many in the Twitterverse, because it  continued to use a middle school picture of Martin.

Reactions to the news itself was mixed.

Is this the first time you’re calling it the Department of no justice? because I can think of better examples.

Making terrorist threats online. That’s brilliant.
