Charles Barkley: DOJ Should Not Get Involved in Zimmerman Case

'You can't change the rules because you disagree with a verdict'

NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley said the Department of Justice should not get involved in the Zimmerman case Friday on CNN.

Barkley dismissed the notion of Attorney General Eric Holder bringing federal charges, contending the DOJ "can't change the rules because you disagree with a verdict":

ERIN BURNETT: […] But do you agree with that — that concept, that subconscious profiling is an act of hate crime?

CHARLES BARKLEY: I don't think the Justice Department should get involved in this. Listen, just because you don't agree with a verdict, you can't change the rules. You can't change the rules because you disagree with a verdict […].

Barkley's comments follow his appearance on CNBC yesterday in which he stated based solely on the evidence presented in the Zimmerman trial he agreed with the verdict.
