Why test the victim for drugs but not his shooter?

Trayvon Martin

Trayvon Martin was tested for drugs and alcohol, post-mortem. The man who shot him, Robert Zimmerman, was not.

[P]olice seemed to accept Zimmerman’s account at face value that night and that he was not tested for drugs or alcohol on the night of the shooting, even though it is standard procedure in most homicide investigations.

That should you tell you all you need to know about how Sanford, Fla. police mishandled this case from the beginning.
