Brace for worst in Trayvon Martin case
Written by Donald Jones
Sanford police arrested George Zimmerman after he shot and killed Miami Gardens teenager Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26. Then they gave him back his gun.
No drug tests were done to see if Zimmerman was under the influence of drugs at the time. Perhaps the most critical evidence that was lost was the clothes Zimmerman wore when he shot Trayvon. The police allowed him to wear the clothes home. The critical Crime Scene Investigation forensics that should have been done immediately were not done. No real investigation would begin until more than 30 days later.
The state, in prosecuting Zimmerman, is like a basketball team 30 points behind before the game begins.
I worry that Mr. Jones is sitting in Marlin's Park waiting for the next Heat-Celtics game.
