Ibragim Todashev has been dead 5 months. Can you say cover up?

It has been 5 months since the murder of Ibragim Todashev and the country is still awaiting an explanation. No, it was not a lawful use of force and the FBI has had 5 months to make that case. All we have is silence. If we are to believe the FBI, they allowed Todashev to keep his samurai sword, or maybe it was a stick, during questioning and after several hours of questioning he became restive and they had to shoot him 7 times including a shot through the crown of his head.
By the FBI's own account, there were maybe as many as 10 law enforcement officers in the small apartment, consisting of FBI, Massachusetts State Police, and Florida local police personnel. It is undeniable that this cover up goes to the top of the Justice Department. The new FBI Director, James Comey apparently has no inclination to uphold the oath office he took just last month. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi who moved heaven and earth to get a rigged trial for George Zimmerman and who has clear jurisdiction to act seems content to aid and abet the cover up of what can only be described as cold blooded murder. The FBI will not allow the Florida medical examination to release the autopsy report under the inane pretense that there is an ongoing investigation. There is not. Whatever investigation there had been has ended an supposedly the events are being reviewed by unnamed others. How about a grand jury to do the reviewing?
