Skip to comments.Florida prosecutor indicted for falsifying arrest warrant against George Zimmerman
Posted on 07/25/2013 6:42:57 AM PDT by JimRed
Florida States Attorney Angela Corey has been indicted by a citizens grand jury, convening in Ocala, Florida, over the alleged falsification of the arrest warrant and complaint that lead to George Zimmerman being charged with the second degree murder of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.
The indictment of Corey, which was handed down last week (see www.citizensgrandjury.com), charges Corey with intentionally withholding photographic evidence of the injuries to George Zimmermans head in the warrant she allegedly rushed to issue under oath, in an effort to boost her reelection prospects. At the outset of this case, black activists such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, who whipped up wrath against Zimmerman, demanded that he be charged with murder, after local police had thus far declined to arrest him pending investigation.
Following Coreys criminal complaint charging Zimmerman, legal experts such as Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz condemned her for falsely signing an arrest affidavit under oath, which intentionally omitted exculpatory evidence consisting of the photographs showing the injuries Zimmerman sustained, and rushing to charge him with second degree murder under political pressure.

It don’t mean nothing. Go to bed now...
these citizen’s grand juries are ridiculous
sort of like those people creating their own ids and resigning from the country
no real authority
Old news. Sorry to say it’s grandstanding. I hope both she and BDLR get Nifonged. I’m sure here’s a Micky D someplace that needs burger flippers. On second thought, burger flippers have more talent and deserve more credit than the two slime mates.
I declare myself King of Delaware.
It holds the same weight.
I want to know when our law enforcement is going to follow up on all the death threats.
Conspiracy to commit murder is a felony.
Nah, we just need to wait for the British press, they'll cover it.
Long live King EEGator! Huzzah!
Could you get me a deal at Rehoboth Beach?
Can I be Prince?
I would like to work in Laz’s ministry as a royal hitter.
Arise my subjects.
You can have Rehoboth, as it’s a little too “Liberace” for me.
I fear that an attempt is being made to bring this entire matter back to square one and begin again the prosecution of Zimmerman.
Only if you behave like Prince Harry.
Was there ever an OFFICIAL grand jury to whom this evidence was introduced, prior to making the indictment against George Zimmerman? Apparently not, as the indictment was brought by Angela Corey based on what was essentially hearsay evidence, and bypassing the grand jury altogether.
It has always been popularly supposed (particularly by those on the left) that a grand jury could return an indictment against a ham sandwich, if that was the outcome desired.
But given the weakness of the case, even this low standard was more than the grand jury could be trusted with.
Under Florida law, a certain degree of prosecutorial discretion is allowed, but not when there is potential for sentence for commission of a capital crime. Manslaughter would not be necessarily subject to grand jury review, but almost certainly, second-degree murder should have been beyond the discretion of the prosecutor.
I should have guessed when I saw all those candelabras on the beach.
“So let it be written, so let it be done.”
I’ll see your King of Delaware and raise you Emperor of Moravian-Silesia.

If that's strue, then it is a violation of the FL Constitution:
FL CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE 1, SECTION 15. Prosecution for crime; offenses committed by children.
(a) No person shall be tried for capital crime without presentment or indictment by a grand jury, or for other felony without such presentment or indictment or an information under oath filed by the prosecuting officer of the court, except persons on active duty in the militia when tried by courts martial.
(b) When authorized by law, a child as therein defined may be charged with a violation of law as an act of delinquency instead of crime and tried without a jury or other requirements applicable to criminal cases. Any child so charged shall, upon demand made as provided by law before a trial in a juvenile proceeding, be tried in an appropriate court as an adult. A child found delinquent shall be disciplined as provided by law.

Well, we’ll see what Miroslav Novák has to say about that!
Carries about as much weight as a Congressional contempt citation.
That excerpt from Florida law is for children. Mr. George Zimmerman is 29 years old.
You have just posted more ammunition for the left who like to point at posts like yours as evidence that we are a bunch of kooks.
This kind of whack-jobbery makes all of Free Republic look like a bunch of ass clowns.
“I declare myself King of Delaware.”
Why would you want to subjugate yourself to me. I am King of the entire Universe! ;-)
It holds the same weight!
Maybe if you learned something about the law you feel a bit different about this.
If we the people start standing behind these Grand Juries, then our Politicians would start to fear us.
Antonin Scalia effectively codified the unique independent power of the Fourth Branch into the hands of all citizens sitting as federal grand jurors. In discussing that power and unique independence granted to the grand jury, the United States Supreme Court, in United States v. Williams, 504 U.S. 36 at 48 (1992), Justice Scalia, delivering the opinion of the court, laid down the law of the land:
[R]ooted in long centuries of Anglo-American history, Hannah v. Larche, 363 U.S. 420, 490 (1960) (Frankfurter, J., concurring in result), the grand jury is mentioned in the Bill of Rights, but not in the body of the Constitution. It has not been textually assigned, therefore, to any of the branches described in the first three Articles. It `is a constitutional fixture in its own right. United States v. Chanen, 549 F.2d 1306, 1312 (CA9 1977) (quoting Nixon v. Sirica, 159 U.S. App. D.C. 58, 70, n. 54, 487 F.2d 700, 712, n. 54 (1973)), cert. denied, 434 U.S. 825 (1977).
I submit to you that this passage sets the stage for a revolutionary knew context necessary and Constitutionally mandated to we the people, THE FOURTH BRANCH of the Government of the United States. Besides, the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches, I submit that there is a fourth branch, THE GRAND JURY, and we the people when sitting as grand jurors, are, as Scalia quoted in US v. Williams, a constitutional fixture in its own right. Yes, damn it. That is exactly what the grand jury is, and what it was always intended to be.
Scalia also stated, that the grand jury is an institution separate from the courts, over whose functioning the courts do not preside Id.
And finally, to seal the deal, Scalia hammered the point home:
In fact, the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional Government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people. See Stirone v. United States, 361 U.S. 212, 218 (1960); Hale v. Henkel, 201 U.S. 43, 61 (1906); G. Edwards, The Grand Jury 28-32 (1906). Although the grand jury normally operates, of course, in the courthouse and under judicial auspices, its institutional relationship with the Judicial Branch has traditionally been, so to speak, at arms length. Judges direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office. See United States v. Calandra, 414 U.S. 338, 343 (1974); Fed.Rule Crim.Proc. 6(a). [504 U.S. 36, 48]
This miraculous quote says it all, the whole theory of its function is that it belongs to no branch of the institutional Government, serving as a kind of buffer or referee between the Government and the people. The Constitution of the United States, as interpreted by the Supreme Court, gives rise to a FOURTH BRANCH of Government, THE GRAND JURY. We the people have been charged with oversight of the government in our roles as grand jurors.
Would you call Antonin Scalia an azz clown?
Read post #35
This is as important as my belief that Obama should be thrown out of the White House as a commie-pinko fag, or that Holder should be jailed along with the leadership of the IRS.
Citizen’s Grand Jury = guys drinking beer in my living room while complaining. Please don’t post stuff that looks real in the title but has no basis in reality.
Crap! Can I still keep Delaware?
Maybe if you learned the difference between an actual grand jury and a Larry Klayman stunt you’d stop volunteering to look foolish.
I’m not the one who is incapable of understanding the law.
Do you have any f-—ing clue who this guy is???
Yes, but understanding a law which is wholly imaginary doesn’t establish a lot of credibility in the real world.
“Judges direct involvement in the functioning of the grand jury has generally been confined to the constitutive one of calling the grand jurors together and administering their oaths of office. See United States v. Calandra, 414 U.S. 338, 343 (1974); Fed.Rule Crim.Proc. 6(a). [504 U.S. 36, 48]”
And what Constitutionally appointed judges called this particular “grand Jury” together?
Art 6, § 2. Due process--Right to work.
No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. The right of persons to work shall not be denied or abridged on account of membership or nonmembership in any labor union, or labor organization.
“. . .Im sure heres a Micky D someplace that needs burger flippers. . . “
Hi meatloaf, Would you really want a burger they had been near? I can’t bring myself to eat from those places now, let alone if they began hiring these lower than pond scum examples of citizenry.
“Crap! Can I still keep Delaware?”
Well, OK. You can keep Delaware but your throne will be on “Candelabra Beach”! ;-)
For starters, under what statute did Klayman "subpoena" jurors or was it simply a good ole boy promise of all the Carling Black Label and pretzels they could consume?
Did you obtain your JD in a box of Cracker Jack?
