“Are you fearful of an outside investigation? “
No. I’d only be fearful if it was an Eric Holder DOJ investigation.
Police had originally recommended manslaughter charges against Zimmerman, but local prosecutor Norm Wolfinger did not act on their advice.
Upthread I think you might see where I commented that any investation “outside” of the police department should be conducted not by the Feds, but by those within the State of Florida beginning with as local to the incident as possible. I do not and would not trust a Fed investigation under Obozo’s administration in this, or any other nationalized incident.
The US Navy SEALS identified Osama Bin Laden within hours, while this young man laid on a morgue slab for three days. The shooter, Mr Zimmerman, should have been held in custody and certainly should not be walking free, still having a concealed weapons carry permit. From my reading, it seems this young man was pursued and there was no probable cause to engage him, certainly not pursue and shoot him...against the direction of the 911 responder. Lets all be appalled at this instance not because of race, but because a young American man has lost his life, seemingly, for no reason. I have signed a letter supporting a DOJ investigation. I am not heading to Sanford to shout and scream, because we need the responsible entities and agencies to handle this situation from this point without media bias or undue political influences. This is an outrage.
