The link to her post – Zimmerman trial commentary is not that long , and is worth the time , and is [here]

… Angela Corey should Be [Zimmerman Case Prosecutor] (Keep It Decent) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 19th,2013

.. tarred and feathered , at the very least (my choice) .

.. prosecuted , (others)

.. spend time in the “graybar” hotel (even more others) .

… Rob McCain (theOtherMcCain) thinks she should be disbarred . Good ! Add that in .

The more I learn about this woman, the more I hate her: She got George Zimmerman charged with murder based on a misleading probable cause claim, rather than getting an indictment from a grand jury. Also, Angela Corey is an evil vindictive bitch:

In 2008, Corey was elected state attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit, taking over from Harry Shorstein — the five-term state attorney who had fired her from his office a year earlier, citing “long-term issues” regarding her supervisory performance. When Corey came in, she cleaned house. Corey fired half of the office’s investigators, two-fifths of its victim advocates, a quarter of its 35 paralegals, and 48 other support staff — more than one-fifth of the office. Then she sent a letter to Florida’s senators demanding that they oppose Shorstein’s pending nomination as a U.S. attorney. “I told them he should not hold a position of authority in his community again, because of his penchant for using the grand jury for personal vendettas,” she wrote.

Did I mention that Angela Corey is an evil vindictive bitch?

An information technology specialist who say he was fired for exposing information that he said Florida prosecutors attempted to withhold from George Zimmerman‘s defense attorneys will file a lawsuit against his former employers. Ben Kruidbos was fired after testifying at a June 6 hearing that photos and text messages from Trayvon Martin‘s cell phone were not turned over to the defense, as required by law. Kruidbos’ attorney Wesley White told Reuters news agency that he will be filing a whistleblower lawsuit against the office of Angela Corey and Bernie de la Rionda, who were appointed to prosecute the case against Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who fatally shot Martin in February 2012.

Ben Kruidbos testifies at a June hearing about evidence in the George Zimmerman trial.

Ben Kruidbos was fired after testifying at a June 6 hearing that photos and text messages from Trayvon Martin‘s cell phone were not turned over to the defense, as required by law. Kruidbos’ attorney Wesley White told Reuters news agency that he will be filing a whistleblower lawsuit against the office of Angela Corey and Bernie de la Rionda, who were appointed to prosecute the case against Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who fatally shot Martin in February 2012. After a trial that garnered nationwide attention, a Seminole County jury on Saturday found Zimmerman not guilty of murder.

In notifying Kruidbos of his termination last week, a spokeswoman for the state’s attorney’s office, Cheryl Peek, excoriated him for what she called his “deliberate, willful and unscrupulous actions.” At the June 6 hearing, Kruidbos testified that he believed that prosecutors had not shared with Zimmerman’s defense the full contents of information extracted by a forensic search of Martin’s cell phone, including photographs of marijuana and a semi-automatic handgun. Ultimately, the photos and text messages were ruled inadmissible in the trial by Judge Debra Nelson.

Corey’s handling of the prosecution has been widely criticized, both by supporters of Martin — who blame her for failing to win a conviction of Zimmerman — and also by supporters of Zimmerman, who say he never should have been charged with murder in the shooting incident that the jury ultimately decided was self-defense.

Florida prosecutor Angela Corey speaks at a post-trial press conference Saturday.

Kruidbos’s lawyer slammed Corey for comments she made after Zimmerman was acquitted.

“You have assailed and undermined both the right to trial by jury and the finality and dignity associated with a jury verdict,” White said in a letter published at The Conservative Treehouse blog. “For you to label George Zimmerman, an acquitted defendant, as a ‘murderer’ at this juncture is reprehensible and irresponsible, can only breed contempt for our system of justice and the rule of law, and may very well lead to civil unrest.”

… LameStremMedia Race Hustling Has Put George Zimmerman on Trial …

the LameStreamMedia Race Hustling has Put George Zimmerman on Trial

[h/t pjmedia , bryan preston]

.. On the night of February 26, 2012, an altercation between two men in Sanford,
FL, left one of them dead. After the deadly encounter, Sanford police took the
lone survivor in, questioned him, weighed the evidence, and concluded that he
had killed the other man in self-defense. The police released him and identified
the two participants in the incident: Trayvon Martin, 17, who had been killed,
and George Zimmerman, 28, who had fired the shot that killed Martin. Sanford
police soon come under assault in the media for mishandling the case. Before
long, Washington gets involved.

..From Feburary 29 to March 8, 2012, nothing much happens in the case. On March 8,
though, the case gained national momentum when Tracy Martin, father of Trayvon,
holds a press conference calling on Sanford police to arrest Zimmerman and
charge him with murder. Two days later, on March 10, the Martin family gathered
at the Sanford Police Department to urge police again to arrest and charge
Zimmerman. Three days later, on the 13th, the Martin family asks Sanford police
to release the 911 call from the night of the shooting. On March 16, Sanford
police comply with that request and the 911 call from George Zimmerman to
dispatchers is released. Zimmerman is heard on the recording telling the
dispatcher about an unknown man walking through the gated residential community
in the rain. Zimmerman tells the dispatcher that based on his experience as a
neighborhood watchman, the unknown man appears to be up to “no good.” The
community had been plagued by break-ins. Zimmerman says that the troublemakers
always get away.

.. Releasing the 911 call, it turns out, is the pivotal moment in events after the
shooting. Had the mainstream media handled the 911 call responsibly, there is
every reason to believe that George Zimmerman would not be standing trial right
now and the nation would not be worrying that the outcome of his trial might
cause race riots.

.. The mainstream media did not handle that call responsibly, at all. Instead of
airing the call as it was made on the night of February 26, NBC News deceptively
edited it to make it appear that Zimmerman targeted Martin because the teen was
black. The image of a race-based killing now solidified, it’s only a matter of
time before the so-called “post-racial” president and his allies turn Martin’s
death into a usefully divisive racial political football, in a presidential
election year.

.. The damage from that false edit was only beginning. NBC News plays its false 911
call edit on the Today show and its other properties. The New York Times on
March 22 calls Zimmerman a “white Hispanic.” The rest of the media amplify the
false racial narrative. ABC News releases a video purporting to show no wounds
on Zimmerman at all, and later admits “error” while releasing a video clearly
showing wounds and blood on Zimmerman’s head consistent with his self-defense
story. At every step of the way, mainstream media “mistakes” and “errors” have
consistently built up the false narrative that Zimmerman targeted Martin and
killed him because he was black.

.. The media successfully fabricate the “armed white adult versus unarmed black
teen narrative,” and soon enough the zeitgeist turns decisively against
Zimmerman. The FBI and Justice Department announce that they are opening
investigations into the shooting on March 19. Reverend and MSNBC host Al
Sharpton holds a rally on March 22 in Sanford demanding “justice” and reportedly
10,000 show up. In Sharpton’s rally, NBC News and its properties have clearly
crossed the line from dishonest journalism to open one-sided advocacy. Two days
later, the race hustle is well and truly on, as Rev. Jesse Jackson arrives in
central Florida to join Sharpton in calling for “justice.” On March 23,
President Barack Obama weighs in, scolding America to engage in “soul-searching”
while saying that if he had a son, he would probably have looked like Trayvon
Martin. Obama’s remarks, delivered in the Rose Garden at the White House,
elevate the shooting past the point of no return. Charges against Zimmerman are
inevitable, lest Republican-controlled Florida face the Holder Justice
Department and a full-frontal media assault. At this point, the media and race
hustlers are sparing no quarter. Taxpayer-funded PBS simply calls Zimmerman
“white” on April 10 in a segment hosted by Gwen Ifill, who is black.

.. Fast forward more than a year and Obama has been re-elected while “white
Hispanic” Zimmerman is on trial facing second degree murder charges. Last week
the prosecution put on its case, and it turned out to be almost entirely helpful
to Zimmerman’s defense. His wounds, which ABC News had tried to cover up in its
own deception, were consistent with the testimony he gave to Sanford police
immediately after the shooting, when he told police that Martin, larger and more
athletic than Zimmerman, had gotten on top of him and was beating him and
smashing his head into a sidewalk to the point that Zimmerman reasonably feared
for his life. Zimmerman told police that he only shot Martin in self-defense.

.. The only clear evidence of racism in the case came from prosecution witness
Rachel Jeantel, who testified that Martin called Zimmerman a “creepy-ass
cracker” during a phone call shortly before the shooting. Witness John Good was
first on the scene after the shooting, and as a prosecution witness told the
jury that he had seen Martin on top of Zimmerman delivering a “ground and pound”
to the smaller man. Every other witness in the trial, with the exception of
Martin’s mother, has given testimony that in one way or another backs up
self-defense and introduces more than reasonable doubt that Zimmerman is guilty
of murder in any degree. Martin’s mother testified that she hears her son
screaming for help on the 911 recordings of the fight. But other witnesses
testified that the voice belongs to Zimmerman. Testimony about the 911 calls,
then, is a wash. The prosecution’s case has introduced enough reasonable doubt
on the murder charge that Zimmerman ought to be acquitted and go free. He could
still face a civil suit from Martin’s family, where the evidence standards are
lower and the outcome of the criminal trial could be useful to the Martin
family’s lawyers as they craft a civil case against Zimmerman.
