Conservative Congressman Allen West says Trayvon Martin case ‘is an outrage’

Rep. Allen West (R-FL), a high-profile conservative and one of two African-American Republicans currently serving in Congress has issued a statement lambasting Florida authorities for their handling of the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

West says in part: “From my reading, it seems this young man was pursued and there was no probable cause to engage him, certainly not pursue and shoot him.”

I’m no expert in Florida law, but “stand your ground” surely doesn’t mean “pursue and shoot.”
