    enforcement, I did take some comfort in knowing that the Justice Department was going to be involved in the investigation of this murder.

    Then... I saw Dan Abrams, legal analyst, on ABC this morning, and he said that if the prosecutor wants the grand jury to indict, they will indict, but if he doesn't want an indictment from them, there will be no indictment.

    When asked about Holder's and the Justice Department's involvement, it seemed like Abrams just kind of blew that off, meaning there was no meaning of their involvement, that they would come after what the prosecutor does and it would only be dealing with a civil rights issue.

    I don't know the legalities of this or if he's right.  

    Sorry, but I can't find the video from this morning.
