No. Not the FBI. He said the Orlando police have requested that he turn in any threats to them.
There is nothing federal about this case. Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch volunteer, not a law enforcement officer. You need “state action” for the basis of federal civil rights violations, and Zimmerman was not an employee of the state or a municipality. Doesn’t seem to qualify as a federal hate crime, and no instrumentality of interstate communication was used to commit or plan the shooting. Interstate transportation doesn’t seem to be part of these facts either, and the shooter, the victim and the shooting site were all located within the same state.
About the only thing the FBI could be looking at would be the actions of the local police in investigating the shooting.
Sorry, should have added the sarcasm tag.
But, I fully expect to see the feds pull something before this finishes playing out. Especially if he is acquitted.
