D.B. Mitchell of Valle Vista has written a number of articulate, thoughtful letters to the editor over the years. The essay that carried his byline in the July 14 Miner, titled "Holder's DoJ helped rally public against Zimmerman," was not one of them.

Mitchell reports that he submitted the piece for "information purposes," with the idea a Miner reporter could research the information and perhaps write about it.

The essay originally appeared in NewsMax.com, and D.B. Mitchell and the Miner acknowledge that. More information on the issue can be found online using Google and a combination of key words, such as "holder zimmerman doj rallies."
