Black thugs are protected by this govt.
My respect for this nation is gone
Not in a million years.
Hahahahaha, they would riot in celebration... no win.
Yes she did....could not believe my ears.
Yes she did....could not believe my ears.
She is not running again per her own comments a few months ago.
Unless something comes out at trail not now known publicly, she has zero chance of getting a conviction on M2nd in any courtroom in the US. Perhaps this is a ploy to try to get him to plead to something less, negligent homocide perhaps.
Allegedly his dad was a magistrate so he should have some idea of how to guide him till they find a decent attorney for him.
My gut tells me this is an old fashion case of charge big, and convict or plea to the lesser charge (manslaughter).
Not to sound smarmy or sarcastic, but is that a legal interpretation or an opinion?
IANAL, but as evidenced on the many threads on this subject, folks like to speculate a lot and I’m not into that.
Thanks in advance.
Has anyone seen Al Sharpton??? do you think he looks like death sucking on a life saver??? he does not appear healthy at all..
I think we should all fear for our future...it does not look good...
>>cant speak for how things go in florida, but in georgia, all felonies go to grand jury.<<
From what I understand from the millions of legal “analysis” who have been weighing in on this from Day 0, FLA only requires a Grand Jury for capital cases.
So long as the Death Penalty is off the table, she can proceed without the GJ.
Or that is my understanding of it...
Defense lawyers are EXPENSIVE. If he can’t afford them, he’ll most likely have no choice but to plead guilty to a lesser charge.
No wonder his lawyers quit.
This was a freak show straight out of an African kangaroo court. I wonder if she received permission from the parents, or was encouraged, to use the trademark “Justice for Trayvon” phrase.
Noway. They will convict. Just as sure as I knew this pathetic special prosecutor was definitely going to pander and file charges, I know a jury will convict.
The repeated photo run by our biased media of a prepubescent 12 yo when the “victim” is actually a 17 year old wearing a hoodie. Why not show the actual image that Zimmerman saw?
Some say Zimmerman is Jewish or Hispanic, but yet he is portrayed by the media as a typical racist low life sacrificial Caucasian Christian. If he even had a modest support group they’d be portrayed as white supremacists or KKK.
White Euros need to understand that they will have nothing unless they start demanding totally equal justice on such cases, and not accept being categorized as racist. Either that or they will be roasted on the political fires as criminals unless they start supporting each other.
The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?
(the autopsy states she was raped. Dont think all of these animals didnt all participate)
And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?
Theres a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?
Where is the outrage?
He doesn't listen to his lawyers. Strike three.
PeeWee’s greatest role.
[ What political office do you suppose this lady is pursuing? ]
i have no doubt that seeking higher office is her motivation.
I totally concur.
Not only blacks are protected at many levels, affirmative action etc, but millions of illegal aliens, including the hundreds of thousands of illegals running throughout the streets of Florida, are protected. All this while Corey lectured Americans about justice.
Watching Corey's sickening speech, talk about law and justice, was really beyond belief.
I agree, this country is done.
This prosecutor is very well respected in the world of law enforcement. She has an excellent record. You and I both know she knows alot we do not know. She took her time in bringing charges for a good reason. She had to know she had everything she needed to prove the charges she was bringing. We need to wait and see what evidence she has.
Look. Here’s the deal. I really don’t have a dog in this hunt. If there really is evidence that damns Zimmerman, he can fry. If there isn’t, well, .... in this political climate, that is likely to be ignored. However, the public will get wind of any additional evidence that’s there.
I should have said though, you may be right. She may offer a plea deal for aggravated manslaughter.
When it comes to race in America, the Hispanic community comes in at least second to the black community.. they are no match...
With a name like George Zimmerman, you won't.
[ She says that Seminole COunty WILL be the trial venue, in spite of all the jury tampering done by the media and race baters... ]
Isn’t that up to the judge?
Who’s the guy on the left?
I agree. She should give a status update and then decline comment.
It is up to her unless his defense atty asks for a change of venue then it is up to the judge whether to grant it or not.
It might be better to vacation somewhere a little bit safer...
I don't give a damn about law enforcement constantly patting each other on the backs, and complementing each other, as our streets are crawling with millions of illegal aliens, creating epic crime and fraud, as they routinely release real violent criminals out into the streets, supply Mexican gangs with weapons, etc., etc..
Special prosecutor Angela Corey is a disgusting arrogant individual, who was gleeful for the face time, as she spoke to the nation like they were 3rd grade children. This woman is clearly more interested in her career, bending to political pressure and appeasing the black racist, than justice.
This was one of the most unbelievable news conferences I have ever witnessed.
“The press conference is going on and this woman is sooo proud of her self. She is reveling in the event. Very sick!”
I saw the same thing. Yet this gutless female worm refuses to call a grand jury to prosecute the racist black panthers who are bellowing for a lynching. We have no leadership in Florida. Whatta bitch.
She has emboldened the black racists in Florida. If Florida burns in race riots, I hope the people call for a grand jury to indict her for sedition and murder.
Right, again it’s a judge who decides in the end.
And you can stuff that “she’s respected” crap. So we heard about Nifong.
That smarmy “Oscar” speech along with her admitting to praying with Martin’s parents TWO weeks ago when she got the case tells me she has NADA. Nothing more than we know.
Which is what? Not much.
Unless a judge says otherwise. If I'm Zimmerman, I want this in the panhandle outside of Gadsden County.
That man is amazing. Do you know where that footage is from?
I’ve said all along, where is the justice for George Zimmerman? This is not going to end well.
Id like to know how many blacks were murdered by other blacks in the last few weeks, ya know, the ones that the media never discusses or gives a damn about. What I have learned this past month, if your black and you murder a white person, its Ok..if your black and you murder another black person, its Ok too..sad that is what I have had to learn this past month but its true
In many states and jurisdictions, yes.
I heard her say it twice and also the cutesie little “sweet parents” So much for a tough minded prosecutor. What a sorry display of unprofessionalism, not to mention getting to the point without all CYA crapola in the first several minutes.
The thing is, do this stupid politicans not realize that they will riot either way? If Zimmerman is fond not guilty they will riot, if he is convicted they will riot as well.
I am still waiting for charges to be filed against the black panthers re: the bounty. That was so blatant. Why no charges?
That is my interpretation of the law, and it’s not a controversial one (I am a lawyer, but not a Florida lawyer).
Zimmerman clearly committed an act that, in the absence of some legal justification, constitutes second-degree murder in Florida. The only issue in the case, then, is whether Zimmerman was legally justified. That’s something that has been debated endlessly, and will continue to be debated some more. But what is not up for debate is whether, in the absence of justification (e.g., self-defense), Zimmerman’s act satisfies the remaining elements of murder.
I don’t know that black thugs are protected, but I do question re-writing self-defense laws just because Trayvon Martin got shot.
Anyway, the outcome of this trial is irrelevant, since people will still carry guns and they will still protect themselves. People are not stupid. They do not want to be happy victims. So unless the government is going to put a cop on every corner, we will keep carrying.
That goodness not all lawyers agree with you. Mark Levin, for example. I’d take his opinion over yours any day.
She is a non apologetic Christian and prays alot from what I understand. Remember, she represents the victim and was doing so two weeks ago when she met the parents before the charges were pressed. And..she knows alot we do not know. We will just have to wait and see.....btw....I like your screen name.
Not a big positive with me, but I'll fully admit a pro-defense bias (not strictly to this case). The favorite prosecutors with law enforcement around here are those who overcharge and then plea to a felony. (Or charge the felony and plea to high misdemeanor.)
You and I both know she knows alot we do not know. She took her time in bringing charges for a good reason. She had to know she had everything she needed to prove the charges she was bringing. We need to wait and see what evidence she has.
That's why I qualified my statement. I HOPE she's charging based on evidence we don't know. I'm not going to say she is or isn't until we see this in trial.
