As Justice Department Pursues Civil Rights Probe Against Zimmerman, FBI Documents Show No Evidence Of Bias offers a piece on the Justice Department's pursuit of George Zimmerman.

The Justice Department has responded to appeals to probe whether George Zimmerman committed any civil rights violations in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin -- but previously filed FBI documents are already challenging the narrative that the shooting was racially motivated. 

Sanford police detective Chris Serino told FBI agents last year that after examining the case, it appeared Zimmerman was suspicious of Martin because of his "attire, the total circumstances of the encounter and the previous burglary suspects in the community." 

According to the document, Serino considered Zimmerman as having "a little hero complex, but not as a racist." 

Serino told the FBI that there had been several burglaries in the area, and that gang members in the community "typically dressed in black and wore hoodies."
