A Florida special prosecutor has decided to charge neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in the shooting death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, sources told ABC News.
The decision by Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey is expected to be announced at a 6 p.m. news conference in Jacksonville, Fla.
The prosecutor's ruling is certain to provoke controversy in Sanford, Fla., where shooting took place and across the country.
Zimmerman, 28, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch captain, shot and killed Martin, who was 17 and black, on Feb. 26 after following the teenager for several minutes.
The special prosecutor's ruling came one day after Zimmerman's legal team quit because they had lost contact with him, and suggested that the pressure of the case had "pushed him over the edge."(continued)

If he’s ever heard from again. May want to check Bermuda...
They couldn’t care less about jury impartiality right now. The main thing was to do anything that will preserve order in the near term.
Wow, a prosecutor who doesn’t mind losing. Rare.
There are those words again...
Saw this coming when she didn’t use the Grand Jury — knew she’d get a “no bill.”
Put Marcia Clark in as the prosecutor and let the circus begin!! She succumbed to pressure for sure, she was probably told the town would riot unless he was charged. Our country is being taken over by hoodlums, and its leader is running the White House
The lynch mob gets their way.
If I complain enough, can I get someone arrested regardless of evidence?
He may get it overturned on appeals, but then will face the Fedgov civil rights charges which have a lower burden of proof.
Because post-acquittal riots are a Florida tradition!
i/ They couldnt care less about jury impartiality right now. The main thing was to do anything that will preserve order in the near term./i
What do they think will happen when he is found not guilty?
“If I complain enough, can I get someone arrested regardless of evidence?”
I don’t know...
Are you one of ‘Holder’s People’?
The fact that this phrase appeared is just shows they don’t even try to hide their agenda.
I guess Obama is a “White Black” or is “white” reserved only for bad people.
Unless they have evidence that we don’t have (like an entry wound in Martin’s back or something), the only prosecution strategy I could see is trying to invalidate Zimmerman’s account. Since there does not seem to be any witnesses that contradict his account, how exactly are they going to do that?
Massive urban renewal projects to stimulate the economy when he is found NG.
They are just kicking the can - and hoping for a hung jury...
What the article doesn’t say what they are charging him:
littering for leaving the shell on the ground.
So, if there are “white Hispanics, do “white Caucasians” “white Negroes” “white Orientals” “white Arabs” and “white Indians” etc. exist?
I prefer WASP Kenyan.
also remember one of the Rodney King officers was named Briseno. they just called him white
