In the State of Florida, the special prosecutor appointed by Gov. Rick Scott in the George Zimmerman – Trayvon Martin case is well-known for political corruption. The best that Floridians can muster up in conversation is that she is “politically ambitious.” Of course, another way to put that is to say she is a hack.
To give you a little idea about just how unethical, vicious and ambitious she truly is, I am taking an enormous risk even writing this blog post. No one was injustice better than a victim of a false prosecution, but let’s take a look at her action.
- Despite the law and evidence, Corey caved into political pressure charging Zimmerman with the 2nd Degree Murder of Trayvon Martin. The Result: The State of Florida has lost integrity, and if not for the jury would have altogether, but stands to lose millions of dollars in a just lawsuit by George Zimmerman over false prosecution.
- Intentionally hid evidence of Trayvon Martin’s horrific character, which certainly would have spoken to Martin’s “state of mind” that ran contrary to the state’s prosecution. Corey fired Ben Kruidbos for blowing the whistle on her State Attorney’s Office, specifically Angela Corey for withholding evidence from the defense. The Result: An honorable man’s live is ruined, and Corey is a public disgrace to the state.
That is just a little idea, but I will let Alan tell the rest of the story:
MIKE HUCKABEE: You have said that you thought the prosecutor ought to be disbarred, that’s a pretty serious type of violation to get a person disbarred. It is that serious to you?
ALAN DERSHOWITZ: Right, it is. She submitted an affidavit that was, if not perjurious, completely misleading. She violated all kinds of rules of the profession, and her conduct bordered on criminal conduct. She, by the way, has a horrible reputation in Florida. She’s known for overcharging, she’s known for being highly political. And in this case, of course she overcharged. Halfway through the trial she realized she wasn’t going to get a second degree murder verdict, so she asked for a compromised verdict, for manslaughter. And then, she went even further and said that she was going to charge him with child abuse and felony murder. That was such a stretch that it goes beyond anything professionally responsible. She was among the most irresponsible prosecutors I’ve seen in 50 years of litigating cases, and believe me, I’ve seen good prosecutors, bad prosecutors, but rarely have I seen one as bad as this prosecutor, [Angela] Cory.
