6. The Sanford police were trying to sweep this under the rug!

The Sanford Police Department has a long history of racial bias.
I believe they were trying to sweep this one under the rug, thinking nobody would care, in an attempt to curry favor to Zimmerman's father, a retired judge.
Investigation protocol in all homicides, whether they have been deemed intentional or not, is to do a toxicological test and report, on the shooter, that was not done! There are numerous other protocols for collection of specific types of evidence regarding shootings, which were never done. The investigator who was originally in charge of the investigation, did not believe Zimmerman's story and wanted to press charges, he was relieved of the case by the Chief of police.

If it walks like a duck, and quakes like a duck, it probably is a duck.
