The CNN analyst was wrong and probably got that info from the family's attorney. It is standard to order a drug test during an autopsy. Not so standard to order a drug test for the other individual. (see below)Nope, didn't hear him. It was a comment on CNN or the radio by an investigative reporter very early on that said that Zimmerman was allowed to go home w/o a list of normal tests done after a shooting.
Nope. Because it just isn't typically done, except for places like CSI.Nope. Because a field breathalyzer test costs tens of thousands of dollars, right?
"Except for DUIs, police cannot test suspects for drugs or alcohol, unless the accused demands or consents to it, or they get a warrant. Trayvon Martin was tested for drugs and alcohol because it is the normal procedure of autopsies to determine the exact cause of death or contributing factors of death," the Washington Times said. "The so-called law enforcement and legal experts who claim Zimmerman should have been tested demonstrate they have no expertise."
