Detroit frets over... Zimmerman?

Having bankrupted their city, you'd think Detroit city council has enough to worry about close to home.

Apparently not, according to the Detroit Free Press:
The Detroit City Council on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution calling for a federal investigation to see whether civil rights charges are warranted against George Zimmerman, who was acquitted July 13 of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
Anyone have any idea how many times the Detroit City Council has sought federal investigations of self-defense shootings in their own city? It was reported last year that Detroit had a justifiable homicide rate that's 2200 percent higher than the U.S. national average.
