Special prosecutor Angela Corey has decided to bring charges against neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida, a law enforcement official said Wednesday.

I’m pretty sure the fact that she keeps saying “the victim, Trayvon Martin”, betrays her decision.
even before this she has been exhibit A of everything that is wrong with prosecutors in FL.
If this is a political prosecution then she may be as exposed as nifong.
Don’t worry. Sharpton’s lynch mobs will go berserk again anyhow when Zimmerman’s attorneys file for change of venue. They’ll demand that Zimmerman get a jury of their peers.
Ms. Corey is as big a coward as the governor who appointed her. Now she will try her best to get a conviction and if, by some miracle, Zimmerman is acquitted, she can call a press conference and state how sure she is that she did the right thing and how sure she is that Zimmerman should have been found guilty and how she would do it again if given the chance, blah, blah, blah.
The only people with any balls were the cops who didn’t arrest Zimmerman. And that cost the C.O.P. his job.
she wants her judgship now.
Angela is ‘sacrificing’ George Zimmerman to make of him a revenue enhancement for Sanford. The media circus she is purposely building with this ‘sensational trial’ will suit the bastard in chief, little barry bastard to a tee. Racist vermin they are. This bitch is trying to out do the O.J. spectacle.
What is the legitimate way to contribute to Mr. Zimmerman’s legal defense, without using Paypal?
SOOOO...you are punched in the face, knocked to the ground and have your head slammed multiple times into the concrete. You pull your legal weapon and kill the s.o.b - but you are arrested for murder.....
Had enough yet????
I think BO and his followers may have helped to start the Mexican/Black war. This will probably get ugly.
>> Now she will try her best to get a conviction
It’s not clear to me that she will be the one prosecuting the case.
I was under the (perhaps mistaken) impression that her only job was to decide whether to bring charges.
Do you know for sure?
does this charge mean that the attorney general thinks it was premeditated?
I said the same thing..what about Zimmerman’s family...she also mentioned the fact.. “of the person who committed this crime”...I am no lawyer...but the special prosecutor might have just given Zimmerman a mistrial..
I’m concerned that, if convicted, Zimmerman may not survive a jail term.
Absolutely. Definite overkill.
Makes me wonder if she plans on offering him a deal. They'll be hard-pressed to prove the charges, and where will the guy be able to get an unbiased jury? I hope Zimmerman gets himself a good criminal defense lawyer who slaps them all upside the head.
Right, that's the whole point. Charge him with essentially "murder" and get it thrown out under the law.
Manslaughter is all they could possibly hope for under what evidence I've seen.
That speech was sickening and wholly unprofessional.
