Florida prosecutor indicted for falsifying arrest warrant against George Zimmerman
e-mail from Conservative Byte ^ | 7/25/13 | conservativebyte.com

Posted on 07/25/2013 6:42:57 AM PDT by JimRed

Florida State’s 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 Zimmerman’s 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 Corey’s 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.

A citizen's grand jury apparently does not carry the force of law, but I'm sure the LSM will pick up on this story- NOT!

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.

Conspiracy to commit murder is a felony.

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.

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.

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 arm’s 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.

That's the second portion, read the first portion — some State constitutions are rather… odd in that they contain multiple items tat aren't really related to each other. As an example this portion of SD's constitution:
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.

You suffer from cranial rectumitis if you think Klayman's latest stunt to raise money has any bearing on current events or is equivalent to an empaneled federal grand jury, which is what Scalia references, madame.

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?
