Sources: George Zimmerman Could Be Arrested Soon; Grand Jury Won't Get Trayvon Martin Case
WFTV.ccom ^ | April 9, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 04/09/2012 1:46:42 PM PDT by lbryce

Two sources told WFTV on Monday that gunman George Zimmerman could be arrested this week, and that a Grand Jury will not meet on Tuesday.

Zimmerman has been in hiding because of threats, after he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. He claims he shot Martin in self-defense.

Jacksonville State Attorney Angela Corey has the sole authority to determine whether Zimmerman will be charged for killing Martin.

Governor Rick Scott put Corey in charge of the case late last month amid concerns that State Attorney Norm Wolflinger wouldn't do a thorough and fair investigation.

"You've got to make sure justice prevails. I'm comfortable that the State Attorney Angela Corey will make that happen," Scott said.

In Florida, first-degree murder cases must be heard by a Grand Jury, which means Corey can only charge Zimmerman with third-degree murder, second-degree or manslaughter.

However, because Zimmerman fired his gun and Martin died, which means Zimmerman could still face life in prison without parole, WFTV found out.

Natalie Jackson is one of the attorneys representing Martin's family and told WFTV she wasn't surprised by Corey's decision.

"We believe justice dictates that he will be charged," said Jackson. "If justice and the procedures were followed, then yes, all of this could've been avoided."

The MSM has no bounds. What kind of tripe is this?

“Judge Cory has insisted that a 12-year-old Hispanic kid who murdered his two year old brother should be tried as an adult.”

Sounds like she hates Hispanics. Perhaps they should rise up....... Just sayin’

And we have a winner!!!!

This case has been made up by unnamed sources who have little to no first hand knowledge.

This weekend we have a rally for Trayvon with a 12-year old speaker. Excuse me, what does a 12-year old in Fort Walton Beach know about events in Stanford several weeks ago? Guess he knows exactly what the LMSM has reported on this "complicated" case

Hispanics are gonna be pissed...

I am not so sure, given that the media has gone out of its way to identify this guy as "white". They are being incredibly careful about avoiding any connection to his non-white half. If his last name were Garcia instead of Zimmerman, it would have been more difficult to sell the "armed white guy shoots unarmed black child" narrative. The media and the race-baiters have taken this and exploited it to the nth degree. People will no doubt die as a result, but TV viewership will spike with all of the riot coverage, so the media talking heads will be happy.

The same phenomena that prevents Congress from impeaching 0bama or Holder, or prevents ARRESTS of Black Panthers for harassment at Polling Places or their placing a BOUNTY on Zimmerman's head or prevents the Sanford Police Department from NOT CHARGING George Zimmerman..
FEAR OF BLACKS!

Of course he’s going to be arrested and ruined financially for this show trial while the COWARD politicians can pat themselves on the back including this loser GOP prosecutor.
The government is being used constantly to attack certain groups of people, and so what if you’re not guilty. Try getting back the lawyer fees.
Zimmerman is DONE!

The Hispanic “leaders”, just like the NOW gang, are phony as hell. They will let one of their own go down because they support obama.

When the vote was being stolen in Florida a bunch of angry white folks showed up and this surprised the hell out of everyone. I hope this happens again if Zimmerman is arrested. There is nothing to charge him on.

Latest stats are that 13% of US population is black.
Increasingly the rest is made up of whites who feel we
got the guild monkey off our back when The Savior was elected, and more recent immigrants from other backgrounds who had no patience for this act to begin with. So let ‘em riot, the rest of us are apt not to care, or to react with revulsion.

If they arrest Zimmerman and there is not some clear and compelling evidence there, what you are going to have is Hispanics rallying to his defense, followed rapidly by the implosion of the balkanized Democrat Party.

and why is that a concern? Because he didn't reach the politically correct conclusion that zimmerman needs lynching?

He won't be arrested.

Self-defense is legal in Florida.

If the sources are unnammed how do you know they don’t have first hand knowledge of the situation. ALL sources are unnammed in the media that doesn’t mean the don’t exist.
The fact it was “Breaking news” this special prosecutor wasn’t going to use the grand jury just a couple of hours ago, tells me the arrest is coming.
Wait and see.

That’s exactly what it sounds like to me, based upon the so-called Gov’s (probably scared crapless) “reported concerns”. What a lousy way to conduct elected office. He ought to be recalled, not Gov Walker. JMO.

Yep, the Al Sharpton lynch mob is out to destroy the Hispanic Democrat George Zimmerman.

Al Sharpton, you know him, right--he is the PMSNBC host and advisor to Barack Hussein Obama (mmm mmm mmm).

Angela Corey is a republican, and all I can say is if she RINOS this up to appease the racial jihading lynchmobbers I am going to do whatever I can to help oust her from office.

Convicting him is up to a jury of his peers. She can try hard to convict, but it’s not up to her, any more than his defense attorney can guarantee an acquital. It sounds to me like she’s going through the motions to satisfy the race hustlers, but does not expect a conviction. Otherwise, she would have used a grand jury and indicted him along with the proverbial ham sandwich who’s next on the docket. She skipped the grand jury because she didn’t think they’d charge him with murder. If he’s charged, it either goes to trial or plea bargain. If it goes to trial, the witnesses get called up to publicly testify and be cross-examined, something that would not happen in a grand jury. My gut feeling is that she wants the witnesses to testify publicly.
