The smug look on Zimmerman’s face remain from behind closed bars. Apparently, he has more lives than a cat. According to the Department of Justice, there was not enough evidence to move forward with the charges. The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division and FBI opened the investigation claiming “experienced federal prosecutors” would determine “whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation” of federal law, according to NBC News. In a statement, the department noted there are “limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction.”

According to the Associated Press:

The department announced its decision Tuesday, saying that there was not enough evidence to bring federal civil rights charges, which would have required proof that the killing was motivated by racial animosity.
Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted of second-degree murder in July 2013. He has said he shot Martin in self-defense during a confrontation inside a gated community in Sanford, Florida.
The case created a national conversation about race and self-defense gun laws. Martin, who was unarmed when he was killed, was black. The teen’s relatives have accused Zimmerman of starting the fight and racially profiling Martin.
