Zimmerman Prosecutors In Huge Screw-Up
The Smoking Gun ^ | 8/9/12

Posted on 08/09/2012 1:26:21 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

AUGUST 9--In an embarrassing screw-up, Florida prosecutors today accidentally distributed a post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin as well as copies of George Zimmerman’s college records, material that Florida law considers confidential and exempt from disclosure.

The documents were inadvertently included in supplemental discovery records distributed this morning by prosecutor Angela Corey’s office. The material was sent to a variety of media outlets, including TSG, that have paid fees to receive discovery provided by the government to Zimmerman’s lawyer.

My favorite comment on the page comes from some facebook guy...hilarious:

“George didn’t kill that man, someone else killed that man. Someone else made the gun, the ammo. Someone along the way taught George how to shoot, someone else formed neighborhood watch.”

"Zimmerman, who was studying for an associate degree in criminal justice, did not graduate last year due to a failed class. "

Zimmerman is still likely 10x smarter than poor Trayvon, druggie and cage match fighter.

The prosecutors may be trying to deliberately screw up this case so somebody will take it off their hands, since they realize they can’ win a conviction.

This is well-know court room tactic. "I'm sorry, your honor. I'll withdraw the question."

The woman is despicable.

Wow. This former Prosecutor says the obvious . . . REALLY bad. You can never tell all the facts from the news for sure, but with what I see . . .someone needs to be considered for firing.

I note that Fox is back to using the picture of a 12 year old Trayvon Martin in its news breaks announcing that Zimmerman's attorneys are going to ask for a Stand Your Ground hearing. The bias shows up in so many ways.

I would agree...it’s pretty deliberate. Any possible conviction....would likely be tossed out, and the whole thing would have to start from scratch (figure 2014 would be the second round if they were to launch into such a maneuver).

Florida prosecutors today accidentally distributed a post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin The documents were distributed this morning by prosecutor Angela Corey’s office. The material was sent to a variety of media outlets The photocopied picture of Martin was one of three taken by an unnamed witness. The photo mistakenly released by Corey is a black and white copy of an image depicting the teenager lying face down on a lawn

The feigned sympathy could flow into a tsunami.

You just knew Angela Corey was corrupt to the core after seeing her famous, news conference, "Speech"

How does Zimmerman’s college transcripts have any bearing on the case? Why not ask for his grade school transcript, or what he had for breakfast back in 1995?

The fact that these were even involved seems crazy.

IMHO, this was done on purpose to tilt the balance towards the persecution side. They are stacking the cards against the defendent and trying to win a conviction through the LSM.

Maybe it was on purpose, because the case is weak. The information itself doesn't sound too damning for George. If te case gets thrown out, at least it isn't a lost case on Corey's record. Maybe she's throwing the match to avoid a Nifong outcome.

They have absolutely nothing to do with it.

But how would Corey and her government prosecutors disseminate pics of the dead guy, without "Accidentally" giving something away from the defendant too?

These people in Florida handling this are just off the charts scary.

A government sponsored, politically influenced circus.

The prosecutors will cheat any way they can. They have no chance of a fair conviction. It’s the Florida way.

Those idiots can't even railroad an innocent man to prison?

It's bad enough to be malicious, but malicious and stupid is unbearable—unless, of course, the word "inadvertent" has come to mean "accidentally on purpose."

Well, IMO, Corey is done with this case, and likely done with her career.

Not buying any of this "Whoops screw up, accidental" cockn'bull story.

When I watched Corey's news conference, as she smiled and waved at her media friends in the audience, and spoke to those in Florida like they were all 10 year olds....Implying she and her team were angels of justice while basically discrediting and trying Z right there at the podium...Then subsequently turning this from a homicide investigation into a discrediting financial investigation of Z....

These people should not be allowed anywhere near a court in America.

"...a post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin."

If Obama had a son, he'd look like the post-mortem photo of Trayvon Martin.

lol, was a clever comment indeed.

Although, my suspicion is that the person responsible for the death of Martian was Martain himself. Albeit I was not there, but the evidence I am aware of paints the picture of him as a thug who violently assaulted a neighborhood watchman...who unfortunately for Martain was armed.

I’m coming to the conclusion the Prosecution doesn’t want to win, they just want to make sure George Zimmerman fails in his Stand Your Ground hearing. That way, Martin’s family can hound Zimmerman for life in the civil courts.

That’s the true goal here.

The part that’s really not damaging to Zimmerman is the picture of the deceased Martin. It’s a really bad B&W photocopy of a picture a witness at the scene took of Martin. It only shows an indeterminately shaped grey blob that takes one’s imagine to determine is a human body. The original photo was obviously bad; the photocopy is far worse.

No surprise that Anti-2d Amendment Angela Corey would pull something like this. Her case to lynch George Zimmerman is totally weak.

Most importantly....it is unfortunate that many GOPers are involved in the lynching, and, aiding Black Ku Klux Klan racists like Al Sharpton, New Black Panthers, and the like

I will not vote for Rick Scott, Pam Bondi, or any GOPer who is involved in this lynching. I am a very strong conservative with zero tolerance for taking away 2d Amendment rights, Self Defense rights, and directly assisting black hate groups. This lynching of George Zimmerman is a travesty...and REAL CONSERVATIVES do not vote for Scott and Bondi next election.

The sad thing is, Corey herself was re-elected as a “Republican” only a few months ago during the Florida elections earlier this year. Why did the state party allow her to run as such, anyway?

Angela Corey has a history of corruption, and, goes after many people in self-defense situations. She is a total Jack Boot Nazi Thug

Now, the release of Zimmerman’s college records, without consent or a judges order, is FEDERAL OFFENSE. We have a few people sitting in jail for just obtaining Obama’s college financial aid records. But, probably, the Feds will not do anything...as they side with the Black Ku Kux Klan Racists in lynching Zimmerman....they still won’t arrest the New Black Panthers for the death threats

Jacksonville Florida demographics allowed RINO Florida Republicans to accept her into the field, for their own twisted reasons.

High percentage of “minority” voters, low percentage of people of every race who currently give a damn anymore.

Another poster had it right in that Corey needs to suffer the same fate as NC’s former prosecutor, Nifong, for the exact same reasons.
That Gov. Scott and AG Pam Bondi intentually “facilitated” it, means they both get to enjoy the fruits of their own labors.
