The Orlando Sentinel doing the State's bidding here pressuring Serino to stand by his affidavit in the upcoming depositions. The OS however seems to conveniently forget that it wasn't Serino's affidavit that brought the charges against Zimmerman but Angela Corey's. She's the one on the hook.

I'm no lawyer but the only reason *I* can see for a cop who's scheduled to testify in a criminal case hiring a criminal defense lawyer is that he/she anticipates possible criminal prosecution.

In the end, when the truth comes out, there are going to be a lot of people looking foolish. There will be others facing charges of trying to frame Zimmerman. Ms. Corey is destined for a Mike Nyfong moment of her own. I hope the Zimmerman family goes after all these a**holes in civil suits.

That "lynching" argument apparently only works if somebody has the right skin color.

People may recall that Zimmerman was described in initial news stories as a "white hispanic".

The real problem here is that none of us can rely upon our various governments to conduct a factual and reasonable investigation, indictment, trial or sentencing once the race card is played; which in this case, was immediately.

I believe he started out white and “evolved”.

It is not uncommon for a witness under subpoena to give testimony in a criminal case or before a grand jury to hire counsel for advice, to avoid any potential land mines. The idea is to avoid any potential charges, not necessarily that they anticipate them.

This cop is anticipating that he will get the Scooter Libby treatment.

Angela Corey likely committed perjury and withheld exculpatory evidence that he can testify to.

To save Corey, the cop must be discredited.

The tactic will be multiple separate sworn testimonies compared for the accidental contradiction, and bingo, cop prosecuted for perjury and evidence denied to Zimmerman's defense.

This is known as a process crime which occurs during the investigation of an act that is declared to be not a crime by that investigation.

The good guys and the cop go to prison and the criminal is lauded as a hero by the judge, prosecutor, media, and Marxist DemoRats.

The cop's lawyer will prevent this prosecutorial trick.

See my tagline.

This whole thing was a farce from beginning to end.

A teen drug dealer and user killed when he attacked a man for watching him.

There was no evidence against Zimmerman, but Jesse Jackass and Al Sharptongue got involved/
They stirred the natives and frightened the Police Department into making charges when there weren’t any. Add to that, a States Attorney looking to nifong the guy and it was off to the races.

When this trial is over and Zimmerman found not guilty , I hope we see law suits agains Jesse and Al who will of course never pay, the attorney general, and the Chief of Police.

To: Uncle Chip; All

Since Baez is a criminal defense attorney...Serino and some Sanford cops may be seeing perjury and civil rights charges down the line

Note that it was black Sanford police officers who started pushing for a prosecution of Zimmerman....as they met w some of the Black KKK Racist lawyers working with, and on behalf, of the Martin family.

With the Martin’s not allowing Trayvon’s cell phone to be searched and accessed....and cops now lawyering up....its time for that Jack Booted Nazi Angela Corey to drop charges....and put pressure on Governor Scott and AG Bondi to get this case dropped. They better make a choice quick on whether they want to continue to follow the Black Ku Klux Klan Racists...or follow the law

Zimmerman is going to rock our federal, state, and local governemnts with civil rights $$$ after this is all over....looks like my tax bills are going up

Remember, it’s Florida. They killed Terry Schivo. They could find an innocent man guilty.

The term “Hispanic” refers to a linguistic group. It means Spanish speaking. Nothing more. It has nothing to do with race.
