    Obama: Trayvon Investigation Needed

    President Obama announced his new pick for the head of the World Bank on Thursday and then turned his focus to the investigation of Trayvon Martin’s death. “I can only imagine what these parents were going through. If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” he said of the 17-year-old boy who was shot by a neighborhood watchman. The president urged that it’s “absolutely imperative” that every angle of the case be investigated. “All of us have to do some soul searching to figure out how something like this happened.”
