From the L.A. Times:
The Sanford Police Department froze its plan to return Zimmerman's gun Thursday after the FBI put a hold on evidence in the case, Sanford police spokesman Capt. James McAuliffe told the Los Angeles Times.http://www.latimes.com/...
The FBI's request signals that the Justice Department is proceeding with its civil rights investigation into Zimmerman's killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
McAuliffe said the gun, a 9-millimeter semiautomatic, won't be returned until the department completes its investigation and had no further need for evidence in the case.
It would be encouraging to see the Justice Department bring a Civil Rights case against George Zimmerman.
But even this move by itself brings a tiny bit of sanity to an otherwise gross miscarriage of justice.
