A medical report by George Zimmermanís doctor has disclosed that Zimmerman had a fractured nose, two black eyes, two lacerations on the back of his head and a back injury on the day after the fatal shooting. If this evidence turns out to be valid, the prosecutor will have no choice but to drop the second-degree murder charge against Zimmerman ó if she wants to act ethically, lawfully and professionally.

The liberal network and print media is the single worst threat to liberty in this country today.
Hell yes, even as Obama said, if he had a son, he’d look like Martin.
On another note Jennifer Rubin supporter of the GOPe extraordinaire. Enemy of the Tea Party.
The whole Zimmerman case is pure politics and the facts be damned for the political outcome.
Of course, the Media mob has yet to be right about a single thing. Odd how no matter how incompetent and politically corrupt they prove themselves to be, most Americans still believe their every word
Mob-think wrong? No way!
George created a martyr for black liberation and social equality, and now he has to pay for it, along with the rest of us.
ping for later
I am quite surprised that the judge hasn’t thrown out this case for lack of evidence. But they may not have gotten to that point in the proceedings as of yet..................
First, the headline is a ... duhhh.
Also, prosecutors are not your friend. It’s a game to them, in this case both a career and political game to get the “best” result they can.
It’s not a search for the truth. Civil rights types usually realize that from the defendant’s perspective, if they hadn’t decided to turn this into a show trial for the proposition: “whites hunt down and murder blacks for no apparent reason”.
Even IF this had been a racist murder, it would not have meant America is a horrible racist country. In fact, there are some real racist killings, so using Z for their agenda is even more reprehensible.
I guess we’ll find out when all of the bozos on the “jury” show up wearing hoodies, eating “Skillets” and drinking Arizona Watermelon Cocktail.
Angela needs to be recalled asap.
Something wrong with Angela Corey. Maybe someone should look at her activities for the last few years and her affiliations.
Mainstream Media trying to back in off the ledge.
It has suddenly occurred to them that race riots are NOT helpful to Democrats who are running for re-election.
I wonder if she got that call in the middle of the night from somewhere near DC, or wherever the vacation was at that point in time.....
Why couldn’t he just have taken the beating like a man until he went unconcious and died? He caused all this grief for us from the MSM. (sarc on)
iirc Corey decided to prosecute after she had a phone call with an activist who was openly calling for a lynching and riot.
I would like to know what that conversation was!
But...I’ll speculate that Corey thought she could avoid a mess of a riot. She probably did not think to recall that it was exactly “overcharging” that led to the LA Rodney King riots.
The only fair justice is lynch mob justice.
I'd hate to see how the hard-left channels are covering it.
Is the prosecuting attorney knowingly Nifoning herself?
But they want to use this as a club against Stand Your Ground and against the right of self-defense (so that people in America will be as lacking in rights as those in England). Plus by portraying Zimmerman as white they keep alive the ogre of white racism as the main problem facing the country.
Wow, I’m practically in tears. Was this in the paper or just on their web site?
Nevermind, I found it. She writes a conservative blog for the web site. I wish it was in the paper.
I think Angela Corey did the right thing, both politically and legally. She knew she had potential riots on her hands. So she bought time, charging Zimmerman with something upon which she knew there was no possibility of getting a conviction. Time allowed a situation that was potentially disastrous for innocents to blow over, with the hucksters avoiding the embarrassment of the facts as they slowly leaked out. The black community will calm down as they find out that their angel was a doped out kid drifting into being a borderline thug. Hopefully, Zimmerman will end up with a life without fear, somewhere else.
Every year my sophomore English classes read “The Crucible,” and every year those students learn about mass hysteria. The good news is that every student understands how the elements of mass hysteria can be seen in the attitudes and opinions of many people about the shooting of Trayvon Martin. In fact, it’s such a good example of mass hysteria I might use the incident for many years to follow, as long as there’s some interest in the case.
There’s other good news here. I think this is the end of the road for those screaming “racism” every time something unseemly or uncomfortable occurs to someone who is black. A trial against George Zimmerman will reveal a nice guy trying to help his neighbors and a thug kid high on dope swept up by gangster culture and antiwhite racism. A lot of people are going to have that “hey, wait a minute” moment as the trial progresses, and those using the killing to promote their bigoted race-baiting agenda will be hung out to dry.
And there’s even more good news. The peace made after the civil rights battles had two elements. First, whites were always to act ashamed. Second, blacks were absolved of responsibility for their situation. This incident is dissolving that agreement, and so much the better. Accusing a individuals of ugly motives because of something that their ancestors did is the essence of racism and bigotry. There have been sporadic voices calling for black responsibility, and hopefully this incident will promote more of that talk. I don’t know about you, but I’m sick to death of blacks (and some other “minorities”) walking around with a giant chip on their shoulders for mostly imagined slights against themselves and their race. Bull Conner died a long time ago; stop whining about it.
So I don’t think it is going to turn out like the left planned it, but, then again, top-down thinking often falls victim to unexpected circumstances.
Probably both, they’re paying her good money to write for them.
You’re right on when you call Martin a “thug kid.” One of his own Twitter posts shows him sporting about five gold crowns on his front teeth. As my dentist remarked a couple of days ago, such hardware goes for about $1,200 per tooth, making a total expenditure of $6,000. No kid from a modest background like Martin’s is going to be able to raise that kind of money for such disfiguring cosmetic dentistry, absent an illegal source of income like drug dealing or burglary, both of which it looks like he was involved in.
State Attorney Angela Corey = Nifong V. 2.0
As I have stated on other blogs, George Zimmerman should immediately be released, he should be given 24 hour armed protection by the FBI issued by direct order of Attorney General Eric Holder.
The Florida female prosecuter that indicted Zimmerman should be fired and then sued by Zimmerman for withholding evidence that proved Trayvon Martin, Obama’s son, was naught but a teenage, thug, gangsta, possible druggie, and Black racist to boot.
And...along with a law suit against the state of Florida, Zimmerman should directly sue, POTUS Obama, Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and just about every member of the CBC, racists all!!! End of story!!!
Seems like even The Washington Post is trying to cover its behind by publishing articles like this one, that run against the paper’s political tilt...
They realize that they’re “on the losing side” of the issue, but to this point have been “all in” for a railroad job. They’ve got to back away slowly. Not that it will help their reputation!
Yes...the coverup of liberal bias begins.
I believe Mr. Zimmerman’s attorney has already said he will ask that the charges be dropped.

Angela Corey could be Romney’s pick for SCOTUS for all we know right now.
But it looks like her career is probably over.
Jennifer Rubin is a token conservative at the Washington Post.
Liberals can’t abandon their lies. If they did, there’d be nothing left of them.
The worst threat to America today is idiot Americans voting for Obama.
What right did this woman have to destroy George Zimmermann's life, when there was substantial evidence he could not be convicted? This is not a mobster with a long rap sheet who can be squeezed for information. This is an ordinary citizen who has had his civil rights stolen from him, and has been made to expend great sums for a legal defense that should not be necessary.
This is the tyranny of the state in action - they can't convict you, but they punish you nonetheless. Your freedom is seized, your finances are ruined, and your safety is put at greater jeopardy by a prosecuter who holds herself above the law. She should be disbarred (as an officer of the court she is supposed to be supporting JUSTICE, not perpetrating persecution).
Fuhrman was on yesterday with one of their female lawyers. I guess he’s so scared of being called a racist again that he’s overcompensating. Made me sick to my stomach. Unless he was an eyewitness, he should shut his pie-hole.
The alternative media has only been around for 15 or so years.
the media will deny they hyped it up at all
But they will throw in whatever they can to try to portray Zimmerman negatively.
Corey may still believe she can get a conviction as long as she gets 6 people on the jury who have made up their minds based on the media reports. There are still plenty of people out there who think Zimmerman is a racist and a cold-blooded murderer.
Reminds me of the DA in the supposed Duke rape case.
The guy was running for reelection and wanted those black votes and the “sympathy” from everyone else that he was a hard-charging person after law and justice.
Nothing was further from the truth there, and it appears here as well.
Very original opinion backed up with great reasoning. That makes a great deal of sense and will be how this unfolds if it is a just world.
Your optimism vastly exceeds my own.
That ‘chip’ won’t come off voluntarily.
You can’t be serious.
what’s remarkable is that instead of treading lighter after the F&%$up over duke LaCrosse, the major media went after this harder than ever.
If Al Sharpton were running the media, would it have behaved any differently?
I shudder to think of what they’ll do next time.
ha ha, no frigging way, not a chance in hell.
Good response. A citizen’s rights and the rule of law should not be used as a political football. That just makes a joke out of the whole Constitutional Republic thing.
