Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said the Justice Department should review George Zimmerman’s case following his acquittal in the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.
Reid, a former trial lawyer, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” he doesn’t always agree with jury verdicts, “but that’s the system and I support this system.”
“I’ll accept the verdict and take a look at the law that they have in Florida that was so unusual,” he said, referring to Florida’s “stand your ground” law. “I think that’s up to the state, I think they should revisit that.”
He added, “I think the Justice Department is going to take a look at this. This isn’t over with and I think that’s good. That’s our system, it’s gotten better, not worse.”
