Bush has seen the videotape which shows the boy being beaten by guards and he said it’s hard to imagine the first medical examiner concluded that Anderson was killed by a blood disorder.
Gov. Jeb Bush stated, “What I saw was, the autopsy, it would be very hard for me to suggest that that would be sickle cell trait, and whether it’s a crime or not will be determined not by conjecture or not by amateurs like me. I would be an amateur in this field, but it would be by the state attorney after a thorough investigation, and that’s what’s happening.”
Bush has appointed Hillsborough County state attorney Mark Ober to investigate the case. Last week, while the students occupied his office, Bush sent a letter to Ober asking him to speed up the investigation.
