"The lawmaker called for a full investigation into the death of Trayvon, a Florida teenager shot last month by a neighborhood watch volunteer. The 17-year-old's death has become a cause celebre, sparking a national conversation about racial profiling and "Stand Your Ground" self-defense laws." USA Today
Does Rush not think a "full investigation" is underway? The "Stand Your Ground" law is really not a factor in what happened to Martin. Zimmerman was carrying a pistol that he lawfully possessed and carried without regard to that law. The issue is whether or not he lawfully shot Martin in self defense.
The SYG law is a Florida law. The US federal government has no ability to change that law unless it wishes to claim that the law is unconsitutional country wide.
I found the statement of the acting Sanford chief of police to be a hopeful thing. He said that the Sanford PD would not allow the integrity of the investigayion to be corrupted by the media and public. I suppose we will hear him called an "Uncle Tom." pl
