    and here's the meat.

    Under the applicable federal criminal civil rights statute, prosecutors would be required to establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, that a law enforcement officer willfully deprived Mr. Crawford of a constitutional right. To establish willfulness, federal authorities would be required to show that the officer acted with the deliberate and specific intent to do something the law forbids. This is one of the highest standards of intent imposed by law. Mistake, misperception, negligence, necessity, or poor judgment are not sufficient to establish a federal criminal civil rights violation.
    So, to summarize. Did the officer intend to kill this man to deprive him of his life, liberty, and pursuit? No, he did not, I don't think anyone besides Rev Al might say so. But why is this the only avenue for justice? Why cant the officer be punished locally for the things he was guilty of?

    It's a black lives matter thing. Only the Fed will do justice for the blacks. That is, if there's any way to blend, construct, modify or manufacture the facts to suit their purpose.
