It was reported Monday that Special Prosecutor Angela Corey would NOT be giving the Trayvon Martin case to the assembled and waiting Grand Jury in Seminole County, Florida. As it requires a Grand Jury to bring an indictment of first degree murder, the move by the Special Prosecutor takes the possibility of a capital charge against George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin, off the table.
Of course, there is a SPECIAL prosecutor because Martin was black and, contrary to long standing tradition, he was NOT shot by another black. Because such a radical departure from accepted procedure immediately elicited cries of “racism” from blacks across the nation– guaranteeing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would sprint to the scene and the nearest camera–the regular prosecutor decided to call it a day. Florida Governor Rick Scott then appointed Corey.
Corey’s dismissal of the Grand Jury leads to a number of interesting possibilities. Perhaps the Special Prosecutor was afraid the evidence, or rather the LACK of necessary evidence against George Zimmerman would result in no indictment by the Grand Jury. Possibly wanting to follow the safe, politically mandated course, she has decided to file a charge herself, just to make sure.
Perhaps Corey is an honorable individual who knows that the evidence will NOT support a charge of murder, or indeed any charge at all. Therefore, she took the case—and all subsequent blame–upon herself due to a concern that, intimidated by race-hustlers and threats surrounding Martin’s death, the Grand Jury might return an indictment based principally on fear. This would be an indictment which no prosecutor would be able to make stick.
Then, after months of preparation and a drawn out media circus before the court, a verdict of “Not Guilty” would be pronounced—the verdict Angela Corey and every attorney connected with the case KNEW must be reached from day 1! If the killing itself has become an excuse for race-baiting, death threats, and beating an old man nearly to death in Ohio, imagine the nefarious use to which an acquittal could be put by the New Black Panthers and Barack Obama!
Former prosecutor Sunny Hostin, now a CNN analyst, decided Corey did the right thing in dismissing the grand jury as she will now make her own decision rather than “…punt the ball to lay people…” Although no one should appreciate the suggestion that non-attorneys can’t decide what is right or just, maybe in this case does Hostin have a point. After all, as Eric Holder has made it clear that the Department of Justice will not punish any of “his people” should they feel somehow outraged or put upon by whites, the fewer to actually take a stand for what is right, the fewer who will be targeted by the New Black Panthers.
Angela Corey has filed a charge of second degree murder against George Zimmerman. She dismissed the Grand Jury in order to make certain justice would be served and to protect those on the jury who might have considered sacrificing what is right for what is safe. All in all, a tough lady.
