“The Trayvon Martin Killing, Explained”
One thought on “Why Hasn’t George Zimmerman Been Arrested?”
Because it’s easier to explain that the Grand Jury didn’t find enough evidence to indict, rather than explain how the D.A. couldn’t come up with probable cause. Isn’t the D.A. the one that’s responsible for bringing evidence before the Grand Jury, though? It’s a little late to start a real investigation what, 2 months after the crime when the outrage really gets going.
It doesn’t seem that “stand your ground” means chase, tackle and shoot an unarmed teenager, though.
