The U.S. Department of Justice, overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder, has ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of all the evidence from George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial - including the exonerated neighborhood watch volunteer's gun.
frick the DOJ!
Since the DOJ has not filed a lawsuit against Z the Sanford Police Department should return Z's gun to him.
After all, he has not been convicted of anything.
Also, it can be stipulated by Zimmerman's attorneys that Z's gun was the gun Z used to kill TM at close range, therefore, there is no need for the DOJ to order the Sanford Police Department to keep the gun as evidence.
