Topic - Jeffrey Scott Shapiro
A friend of mine had a similar experience to that of writer Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, albeit 30 years ago ("No Dachau? No Auschwitz? Ignoring just as evil as denying," Commentary, Oct. 18). When my friend visited Dachau, he encountered a German population that professed to know nothing (or pretended to know nothing) about what had occurred there. There was universal denial and no acceptance of blame for those who had been killed.
Mr. Shapiro said an argument can be made that if the Justice Department is going to investigate anyone in this case, it could look at Florida state officials, who appointed a special prosecutor in response to weeks of demonstrations after police let Mr. Zimmerman go free and local prosecutors declined to press charges.
Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, a lawyer, investigative reporter and former prosecutor in Washington, said the 911 tape in the Zimmerman case "clearly demonstrates" that his actions were not motivated by race, but rather clothing.
