My question involves police conduct in the State of: Florida
What legal precedence allowed the Governor of Florida to step in and appoint a special prosecutor to take over the Treyvon Martin shooting investigation?
I know that the Police Chief step aside before this decision was made but I imagine it was due to pressure.
I also know that the police dept was under fire for botching the investigation
that the Florida "Stand Your Ground Law" was called into question and that he also created a Task Force to look into the constitutionality of the law- but they were separate actions.
Do all governors have powers like this? Or does Florida have specific laws making this possible?
