    Image from Jacksonville.com When both the NRA and the local president of the NAACP want you out of office, you are in trouble.  Angela Corey found herself in that position after ham-handling a number of cases that she chose to prosecute, including George Zimmerman in the Trevon Martin self defense case. From usatoday.com: Melissa Nelson, a corporate lawyer and former prosecutor, claimed 64% of the vote over Corey’s 26% in the fourth circuit, which oversees Jacksonville, Fla. Nelson will face Kenny Leigh, a write-in candidate who runs a men’s only law firm, in the general election. (Fun fact: no write-in...
  • Pam Bondi For Vice President?

    Pam Bondi was an early endorser of Trump. She's the attorney general in her second term, an 18-year prosecutor. She's an outsider who became an insider, and she has a good, strong relationship already with the candidate.... I think he's looking for someone that brings something to his ticket that does not go against the narrative he's been selling for the last six months, and I think people like Pam would fit the bill.

    A Sanford judge today ruled that Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi does not have to answer defense attorneys' questions under oath in a mammoth Internet casino gambling case pending in Seminole County. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. made that ruling this morning.The case involves more than 50 defendants, accused of violating the state's gambling, racketeering and money laundering laws by operating Internet cafes that prosecutors say served as storefront gambling parlors. Each had ties to the non-profit Allied Veterans of the World, a group that provided charity to military veterans but, according to authorities, donated just two percent of its...

    Two weeks into the George Zimmerman trial the debate has intensified over whether Florida state prosecutor Angela “tough on Crime” Corey and her team is helping or hurting their case against Zimmerman with their witnesses. The string of witnesses has offered a mixed bag of both damning and corroborative testimony against and for George Zimmerman that has been more than enough to the send a red flag up. Though George Zimmerman is not a police officer being prosecuted for misconduct, he’s the closest thing to it without a badge. And that conferred on him some of the same perks that...

    Today, July 3rd, is DAY #18 (of 4th week) State of Florida V. George Zimmerman case. Rather than recap yesterday, I want to draw attention to some issues – A great recap is available HERE: Yesterday, we got the first view on the horizon of the mud about to get slung by the State toward the character of George Zimmerman – Things are about to get intense. Also, the State probably wants the jury to hear Sybrina, TrayMom™ and tears, last in the line-up prior to the long mid-week holiday break - so heads up for her this afternoon. Tracy...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Marissa Alexander, a woman whose case helped bring national attention to Florida's stand your ground and minimum sentencing laws, was allowed to leave jail late Tuesday afternoon to spend the rest of her sentence on house arrest. Applause broke out in the courtroom when Judge James Daniel announced he would reject the prosecutors' request for an additional two-year sentence and was releasing Alexander to community control. As she left the courthouse, Alexander read a prepared statement: "Today, after the sentence given by Judge Daniel, my family and I will be able to move on with our lives....

    We want to believe in justice for all, but when guns are in white privileged hands, blind justice remains impossible to expect.“I think it’s a vindication for justice.” Angela Corey said that. This is the same Angela Corey whose office failed, not so long ago, to secure a guilty verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. But there was the Florida state attorney on Wednesday afternoon, having secured a guilty verdict – delivered by a mostly white-male jury in about five hours – that condemned Michael Dunn to a minimum of 25 years...

    George Zimmerman continues to be an attention starved horrible human being. Zimmerman has continued to keep himself in the public eye since being acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin–and now he wants us to know that even he thinks the justice system is a joke. Just a month ago, in between run ins with the police, Zimmerman decided he fancied himself a painter and sold a painting on eBay. It was an American flag, with the words “God One Nation with Liberty and Justice For All.” It sold for $100,099.99. His follow up painting is even more appalling, classless,...

    A 65-year-old Keystone Heights man sentenced to 20 years in jail for firing shots into the ground will be getting a new trial. Ronald Joseph Thompson had his conviction tossed out this week by Circuit Judge Don Lester. He was released pending that new trial, said Greg Newburn, director of Families Against Mandatory Minimums Florida Project. The judge found that the jury instructions in Thompson's original trial were misleading regarding the justifiable use of deadly and non-deadly force. A new trial is the latest twist in a saga that has wrapped Thompson in controversy over the state's "10-20-Life" statutes. A...

    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Mark O'Mara said his legal fight with the people who tried to convict George Zimmerman is not over. On Friday, at a Tiger Bay Club luncheon in Orlando, O'Mara detailed the case that garnered national attention. Mark O'Mara described the struggle he said he went through to get evidence from the prosecution team of Bernie De La Rionda and State Attorney Angela Corey. He cited the picture of a bloodied Zimmerman, taken the night Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, as an example. "It is undeniable that they had a plan in mind, with the 15...

    The death of Trayvon Martin was an avoidable tragedy, and some of the things that happened following the incident are also avoidable if we heed to the lessons learned by two of Sanford’s top cops.Born and raised in Sanford (Fla.), former Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee was in his position 11 months when the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman occurred. Leveraging his three decades of law enforcement experience, Chief Lee was at the helm of a department with budget woes. Two months before the Zimmerman/Martin incident occurred, Lee had hired another law enforcement veteran with 30...

    VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) -- A group of Trayvon Martin supporters walked from Jacksonville to Sanford, where they dedicated a memorial for the teen at a museum late Saturday afternoon. The demonstrators arrived in Sanford late Friday, ending what they called the "Walk for Dignity," which started in Jacksonville. The group held a community forum Saturday afternoon, followed by a dedication of the Trayvon Martin memorial at the Goldsboro Westside Historical Museum. "The most important reason why we're here, we want a system that treats us equally," marcher Estefania Galvis said. The group's six-day walk from Jacksonville to Sanford...

    Dissident Voice ^ | July 23, 2013 | William Boardman
    Listening to the lead prosecutor’s final argument in the Zimmerman case, it’s hard to believe he really wanted a conviction. Lead prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda lost focus from the moment he opened his mouth and began: “A teenager is dead. He is dead through no fault of his own. He is dead because another man made assumptions….” Not only is de la Rionda’s voice flat, his tone subdued and resigned, he begins by presenting the victim as an abstraction, characterizing him in a neutral, almost dismissive way as “a teenager,” who also happens to be dead, which everyone knew...

    Stately McDaniel Manor ^ | July 19, 2013 | Mike McDaniel
    Who is Angela Corey and how did she get picked to prosecute George Zimmerman? The best information suggests that Corey was reliable, as in reliably overly-aggressive and unethical. Interestingly enough, Corey ran for her office as a republican and was appointed by republican governor Rick Scott and republican State Attorney General Pam Bondi. One might think that republicans would be less prone to the corruption that became so evident in the prosecution of George Zimmerman–and the continuing prosecution of Shellie Zimmerman–than Democrats. Unfortunately, it appears that Governor Scott and AG Bondi went wobbly on principle and the law in the...

    Angela Corey, the special prosecutor who struck out going after George Zimmerman, has not taken defeat well. At Red State, streiff catalogues her outrageous behavior in an article that should be read in its entirety: I think everyone can now agree on one thing, Angela Corey was possibly the worst possible choice for a high profile prosecution. She has a sense of entitlement that is so typical of small people promoted to jobs that are well above their level of competency but who lack the self-awareness to recognize what everyone else knows. (You need look no further than her bizarre...
