Despite both the media campaign to absolve Zimmerman and accept his cover story at face value as well as the protests alleging Martin's having been shot to death without justification, the fact that Governor Rubio has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate Zimmerman's killing Trayvon Martin is an unambiguous reflection upon the handling of the case by local police, even if Chief Billy Lee had not received a "no confidence" vote from the city counsel and taken a leave of absence.
Whenever an armed man pursues and kills an unarmed man, serious questions should arise rather than the killer's account being bought readily. Does anyone disagree?
Is Rubio a spineless politician attempting to placate an irate segment of the electorate, or does he genuinely feel that questions arise in the killing that cannot be so blithely dismissed?
Why, one must ask, would anyone wish to forego such an investigation, voice identification analysis, time lines, phone conversations, and witness accounts of the events preceding the killing included?
If they feel such a responsible approach will prove exculpatory for Martin's killer, they should welcome the belated attempt to ascertain the truth, surely. And show patience in the meantime.
