Following a request from the FBI, the Sanford Police Department reported Thursday that it has halted its plan to return George Zimmerman’s gun and other pieces of evidence used at his murder trial.
Never mind that Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges, and so the State of Florida has no grounds for refusing to return to him his property and no grounds for withholding from him his concealed carry permit.
Never mind that the same FBI that asked the SPD to retain Zimmerman’s property has already completed an extensive investigation into Zimmerman’s racial bias as part of a general investigation into the man prior to his arrest and trial, finding no hint of racial bias.
Zimmerman is to be denied his property, “pending…DOJ investigation.”
And so the persecution continues. Within a broader theme to facilitate the Progressives’ attack on the 2nd Amendment.
