Skip to comments.Why did the Trayvon Martin Special Prosecutor dismiss the grand jury?
Posted on 04/12/2012 1:25:25 PM PDT by jmaroneps37
It was reported Monday that Special Prosecutor Angela Corey would NOT be giving the Trayvon Martin case to the assembled and waiting Grand Jury in Seminole County, Florida.
As it requires a Grand Jury to bring an indictment of first degree murder, the move by the Special Prosecutor takes the possibility of a capital charge against George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin, off the table.
Of course, there is a SPECIAL prosecutor because Martin was black and, contrary to long standing tradition, he was NOT shot by another black.
Because such a radical departure from accepted procedure immediately elicited cries of racism from blacks across the nation guaranteeing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would sprint to the scene and the nearest camerathe regular prosecutor decided to call it a day. Florida Governor Rick Scott then appointed Corey.
Coreys dismissal of the Grand Jury leads to a number of interesting possibilities.
Perhaps the Special Prosecutor was afraid the evidence, or rather the LACK of necessary evidence against George Zimmerman would result in no indictment by the Grand Jury and wanting to follow the safe, politically mandated course, has decided to file a charge herself, just to make sure.
Perhaps Corey is an honorable individual who knows that the evidence will NOT support a charge of murder, or indeed any charge at all.
Therefore, she took the caseand all subsequent blameupon herself due to a concern that, intimidated by race-hustlers and threats surrounding Martins death, the Grand Jury might return an indictment based principally on fear, an indictment which no prosecutor would be able to make stick.
Then, after months of preparation and a drawn out, media circus before the court, a verdict of Not Guilty would be pronouncedthe verdict Angela Corey

I am not even sure there should be a special prosecutor. I think Justice Scalia nailed that one accurately.
you find another.
they are looking.
All they need to do is pass an ex post facto law declaring racial profiling to be a capital crime. Then they’d get a twofer. < / sarcasm >
Probably she was afraid the GJ would not indict Zimmerman. This way she insures he gets arrested and leaves it up to a jury trial. Its doubtful any Fl. judge will dump the charge before it goes to jury. Fl. is one screwed up state.
I think the race hustlers are PRAYING that Zimmerman will get off so they can instigate race riots before the elections in November. Watch to see if this trial is fast-tracked in order to meet that timeline...
That's my take on it.
The furor has already died down.
My bet is that in a month or two the welfare class will have forgotten all about it and it can quietly be dismissed.
Wanted a "sure thing". Appease the "mob".
Florida is a fine state! Note the people that come here and screw it up.
Many people come here and make fine homes and families others come here to scam.
Example: Aileen Carol Pittman Wuornos, born in Michigan and Theodore Robert “Ted” Bundy (born Theodore Robert Cowell in Vermont.
“The furor has already died down. My bet is that in a month or two the welfare class will have forgotten all about it and it can quietly be dismissed.”
Yeah right. These race hustlers are still fighting slavery. That case was settled 150 years ago. This thing has only been going a month.
A "no bill" is substantially different that a simple refusal to indict and can result in discipline for the prosecutor including removal from office and loss of license to practice law, plus tort consequences for malicious prosecution.
No Grand Jury and the GJ can't screw her.
I don’t think the Presstitures will leave this matter alone.
There are ratings to be had by hyping up this issue.
Just like the Casey Antony media freak-show last year - this year promises to be even more fun with riots and cracker killings and more.
Stayed tuned. Film at eleven.
Do we really need a state-level Ken Starr for such a court case?
The local DA didn't charge Zimmerman because there was no evidence to support charging him. That's not an option for Corey. The evidence doesn't matter when the mob is calling for blood and threatening the well being of anyone who doesn't support them. She had to charge him because the politics require her to do so. We have moved from a system run by the rule of law to a system of mob rule.
No honor came from her jubilant speech.
Because, she was a afraid of a No Bill. The Grand Jury might have decided there was not enough evidence and refused to indict. Then, if she went back and attempted to get him indicted on lesser charges, it would look even MORE like this is a “politically correct” indictment!
We had this happen down here in south Texas. Joe Horn called to report that his neighbor’s house was being robbed. He told the operator that he has a gun and he will not allow them to take the stuff and that he was afraid for his life - as they might hit his house next. The operator said, “Do not go outside.” He went out, and on the call you here him tell them to stop. “If you move you are dead.” They turned towards him and he shot one of them dead.
Grand jury gave a no bill! They decided that Joe was within his right to protect himself and his neighborhood. The race-baiting idiots, Quanell X (Houston’s version of Rearends Sharpton and Jackson) demanded that they indict him anyway! At that point, the DA refused to do a PC indictment and that was it.
The Dems/MSM (same thing) have lit a powder keg, threw some kindling and boxes of matches on top and are hoping that it goes off to turn Florida over to Obama! The Repubs, instead of following the law, are trying to manage this crisis and keep if from blowing before the election! So, bottom line, she didn’t want the riots to start right NOW!
>> “Why did the Trayvon Martin Special Prosecutor dismiss the grand jury?” <<
Because they were not going to indict without any evidence. Can’t have a lynching without a rope...
Clearly, the fix is in and Zimmerman will spend most of the rest of his life in prison, no matter what the facts. The Florida prosecutor was actually drooling with anticipation when she charged Zimmerman yesterday. But at the most fundamental level, it was Zimmerman himself that screwed-up at the most basic level. When you carry a firearm you have to be especially careful to avoid a confrontation. Zimmerman screwed the pooch on that one. Carrying places an extra burden of responsibility upon s/he who carries.
Angela Corey is up for re-election. Jacksonville’s population is 1/3 black.
Skipping the Grand Jury and filing murder charges appeases a large sector of the electorate and safely punts the case into next year.
The reason is because there wasn’t a charge of 1st degree murder. Simple as that.
I see two possibilities:
1. The GJ doesn't indict Zimmerman and the expected racial "unrest" occurs.
2. The GJ does indict Zimmerman, but for first degree murder, and she knows that no prosecutor in the world can convict him on the evidence. Upon his subsequent acquittal, the expected racial "unrest" occurs.
Speaking as a former Prosecutor, we would rarely take cases like this to the Grand Jury. We always preferred to make the call ourselves. Sometimes we would because we didn’t want to go through a preliminary hearing. This just isn’t an unusual move at all.
Not when you know the outcome it isn't.
Nah. She's a scum-sucking race pimp who is depriving George Zimmerman of his rights under color of law.
How was George Zimmerman supposed to know that the young tough Trayvon Martin liked street boxing, had an attitude & was dumb enough to bring his gangsta thug fists to a gunfight, instead of bringing home the requested Skittles to his brother Chad?
Still can't figure out why Chad didn't get all antsy about not getting his Skittles.
Maybe little Chad knew something about what happened to his brother, the young tough...
I wonder how Hispanics are feeling about this.
George Zimmerman’s mother is a latina, and though we know he’s not, George LOOKS like a pure-bred Mexican. Hispanics and blacks have never been a natural alliance, one could even say they’ve been a bit weary of each other.
This whole thing could backfire in that Hispanics are probably feeling a great deal of affinity with George, and could take offense at what will surely appear to them as an attempt to railroad one of their own. Far more votes could be lost as a result of pushing this, than will be gained among blacks, who are already solidly in the Obama camp.
I think it’s a big political blunder for the left to try to gain politically by pushing the envelope here.
Have you examined the website Wagist.com?
Most in-depth site on this that there is:
Excellent. They have a new article out with the trial judge.
they are seeking monetary justice, or more directly monetary gain. THAT is the motivation; and the absence of an arrest is what stood between them and their ability to sue in civil court.
Ask yourself why would anyone want an arrest without a conviction? We are not asking that he be convicted; We are asking that he be arrested
this morning Martin’s mother said she thought it was an ‘accident’. Hours later she says he was ‘stalked and hunted’...
Follow the money.
Holder is also in on it.
Because she's not a Special Prosecutor.
On 23 March Norm Wolfinger, States Attorney for the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida asked to be recused in the Trayvon Martin shooting case. To replace him, the Governor nominated the States Attorney for the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court, Angela Corey. For this case she is just the prosecutor.
The reason she dismissed the grand jury rhymes with NO BILL.
My point is that if there is evidence that compels a prosecution found by the second prosecutor then it was ignored by the original DA. More “racisim” donchaknow. Prosecute it. It would make an excellent show. I mean, imagine what the DA would have to do and say to defend himself. The Left of course understands this. This is why they find that Zim is an evil honkey for getting off...but no one is responsible for it!
She has a duty to the people toinvestigate the first DA who found no crime where she subsequently did (without any new evidence). SOMEONE has this duty. Of course no one on the left is stupid enough to prosecute the DA because they know he would defend himself.
She think's she's a climber
