Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., has called the shooting death of unarmed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin an outrage and has thrown his weight behind the Justice Department’s investigation into the matter, The Washington Post congressional blog 2chambers reported.

On his Facebook page, West said, “This is an outrage.”

“The U.S. Navy SEALS identified Osama Bin Laden within hours, while this young man laid on a morgue slab for three days,” West wrote. “The shooter, Mr. Zimmerman, should have been held in custody and certainly should not be walking free, still having a concealed weapons carry permit. 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 . . . against the direction of the 911 responder.”

West noted he had signed a letter supporting the Justice Department’s investigation but said he did not plan on attending protests “to shout and scream, because we need the responsible entities and agencies to handle this situation from this point without media bias or undue political influences,” the Post reported.
