AG Martha Coakley: ‘Everyone is pleased’ charges brought in Trayvon Martin case
bostonherald.com ^ | April 12, 2012 | Matt Murphy

Attorney General Martha Coakley, the state’s top prosecutor, said Thursday she agreed with the decision by a Florida special prosecutor to bring charges against the man responsible for killing Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

But when asked if she would ever ask the residents of Massachusetts to pray for her to win a conviction – as Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey did Wednesday - she chalked it up to Florida being Florida.

“Everyone is pleased...”

######

In Commiechusetts, full of neurotic, self-hating white progressives, I suppose that has a good likelihood of being true.

Yes, because we should all feel happy when justice surrenders to mob rule.

Everyone she talks to, anyway.

But really, who else is there?

Martha Coakley that ran against Scott Brown? (duh- of course it is)
This is making me want to be sick.
When will we see charges filled in all the black on white crimes committed by “flash mobs” all over the country?

All men *are* created equal. How much longer will Caucasians be far less equal than others?
God Bless George Zimmerman & Keep him safe.

Not Mr. Zimmerman. . .
I realize she was left with an impossible task. With Jessie & Al, the Black KKK and the minions that lapped up every lie they heard.
She was left with very little choice.
She could have asked for a grand jury. If they came back with no bill the agitators would have demanded to know who the grand jury was and put bounties on their heads. Grand juries are secret and their identities are kept secret. Somebody would have leaked their ID's.
So she choose not to use a grand jury.
In my humble opinion she did Mr. Zimmerman a favor charging him with 2nd degree (1st Degree requires a grand jury) murder.
Since he was probably acting in self defense it should be easy to either get a complete not guilty or a hung jury.
If she had charged him with manslaughter it would be easier to convict him, but if what I have heard is true he should get off.
Of course I wasn't there and have said all along I want people testifying to be under oath. Not on a TV camera. Under oath doesn't keep someone from lying but most don't lie under oath.

Martha has never seen any corruption within yards of her office at the State House. All the while federal prosecutors keep bringing out state reps in handcuffs. She is completely useless.

Any time folks get angry at Scott Brown about something, just think. It might have been Martha Coakley.

That’s “FloriDUH”, not “Florida”.

As El Rushbo said, words have meanings.

This is exactly what I posted on another FR thread. Zimm’s brother was saying she may have charged with 2nd * murder so he could plead down to say manslaughter. But remember this is the chick that tried a 12-year old as an adult for murder. Seems like she is swinging for the fences.

I got secession and CW II.

We are already too far along a downward spiral, with a trajectory that is much too precipitous to hope for more reasonable scenarios.

Hope I’m wrong.

C’mon, you’ve lived in this state long enough to know that you can’t be a real Mass Pol without at least one federal indictment. Being convicted AND doing a stretch at Club Fed; that’s a career enhancer.

AG Martha Coakley: ‘Everyone is pleased’ charges brought in Trayvon Martin case

Well, to Hell with the 2nd Amendment and to Hell with the inalienable right to self defense.

As long as everyone is 'pleased', its all goooood.

Ack! These chicken livered statist o-holes REALLY make me sick!

Baloney. Mob rule is not a choice, it's a coward's way out.

She’s worse than useless. Imho, her motivations are for power and the advancement of her own personal beliefs.

The truth will come out to the dismay of the very people who tried to hang this man. They will not be happy until his head is on a pike, and even if he is found innocent, the damage will already have been done; even after the riots are over. Zimmerman ought better think about moving to Israel-—safer there than the USA will ever be-—after Holder and his NBPampersParty terrorists get through with him and anyone who knew him-—even the ones Spike Lee got wrong.

I’m afraid of it. Who would have ever thought that the person driving it would be sitting in the WH?

I am praying that things don’t get a whole lot worse before they get better, but I can’t imagine how that can happen.

Seems to me the AG’s words here and prior should alone be enough to get this tossed. Talk about judicial bias!
