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.
