he special prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin shooting case says she will make an announcement about the case within 72 hours.
In a statement released late Tuesday, Prosecutor Angela Corey didnÃ¢t specifically say what the announcement will be.

Grand jury and jury are two different things. Without the grand jury murder 1 is off the table.
More likely they bailed because of death threats to their families and themselves.
I wouldn’t say they are out of work.
They should be preparing several hundred large law suites.
Either that, or we'll find out that the evidence released by the Town of Sanford was a misleading selection.
Which I think would be darned difficult to pull off, against the interest of the town, etc. So, don't take my remark as "could be" in any more than an academic sense.
Assuming the investigation finds his use of force was justified, Corey is going to be threatened (more) too.
“suits” (not “suites”)
Give me 3 steps(days) ma’m, give me 3 steps(days) ma’m, and you won’t see me no mo’.
What about the trip to the 7-Eleven? Some people have speculated that Martin didn’t even go there, that “Skittles” and “tea” were code words for drugs. But Zimmerman does report him holding something, and apparently the can and candy were removed from the crime scene. The story about the Skittles originated with the lawyer for the Martin family, Benjamin Crump. A spokesman for the law office confirmed that the information came from Martin’s girlfriend, and also, he believed, from a call to Tracy Martin. The law office hadn’t corroborated their account by looking at security camera tapes or at an electronic receipt from the store.
But a video does exist. The public relations director of 7-Eleven told me that, according to the company’s manager of security, a store camera captured an African-American male (she wouldn’t commit to “young”) purchasing a bag of Skittles and a can of tea (she wouldn’t say that it was “Arizona” tea). The hard disk with the video was removed after the story broke, and it has been subpoenaed by investigators for the state and/or county. The company has not made it available to the media. The public relations director could not specify the exact time of the purchase but said it was between 6:00 and 6:30.
The 7-Eleven, according to maps.google, is 0.8 miles from the entrance to The Retreat at Twin Lakes, a 16-minute walk. There is not much to see or do on Rinehart Road on a Sunday night, and it was raining hard. Even if he was not bringing the tea and Skittles to his stepbrother but was eating and sipping en route, Martin should have arrived back at his dad’s fiancée’s place before 6:50, and much earlier if he left the store closer to 6:00 than 6:30. According to logs (now deleted from the department’s website), Zimmerman called the Sanford police at 7:09:34
Not conclusively, but I've read a report of a tape from a convenience store, and somebody buying skittles and iced tea. Plus, the original story is most likely traced back to Sanford Police Chief Lee, and I doubt he'd use drug slang in this context.
If Mr. Zimmerman is smart......
He is going to be charged, and he is going to be convicted. Once he is charged, no juror they impanel will feel or be safe. There will be death threats to the jurors and everyone else involved.
If he's not charged (but he will be), Holder & Company will manufacture a federal offense and come for him.
Zimmerman should be heading for Mexico in the trunk of a car right now if he has any survival instincts.
Lady Justice is no longer blindfolded and without a thumb on one side of the scale?
You have been one of the voices of reason throughout this
ordeal. My problem, is that if they HAD the evidence needed to go to trial, they would have already arrested him.Now I fear they might arrest him for pure political expediency, and town safety.
It was never going to be murder, as there was no intent to do grievous harm.
If there is anything, it was always going to be manslaughter.
I spent today driving back from a funeral in Louisiana. While searching for a station to listen to, I stumbled across a “Black” talk radio show. Hearing the distorted view of this and the angry calls of listeners wanting to take preemptive action against what they view as a rigged system was the most fear inducing thing I have faced. It will not simply be Florida that will erupt. The Liberals have primed this far too well and for far too long.
I agree with you. See post#74
All hell may break loose on the other side.. AT THE BALLOT BOX IN NOVEMBER, that’s how. Eric Holder’s dereliction of duty allowed this to escalate. And where is Janet Napolitano and her concerns of illegal bounty’s and closing down police stations as ‘domestic terrorism’? CRICKETS.
But if he's not charged, then there is a whole lot of money to be made by some lawyer suing the pants off of everyone in sight.
