It’s obvious the fix was in when Angela Corey was assigned special prosecutor, remember, she decided to drop the grand jury so she could made the decision by herself. I’d wager she knew they wouldn’t charge Zimmerman and most definitely not with second-degree murder charges.
Via The New Yorker:
“I will confirm that Mr. Zimmerman is indeed in custody,” Angela Corey, the special prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case, said at a press conference on Wednesday night. She said that she had started the process of charging George Zimmerman with second-degree murder, and that before stepping up to the microphone she had spoken to “those sweet parents” — Sabryna Fulton and Tracy Martin — and told them what she was doing to get “justice for Trayvon.” The first time she met them, she said, they had prayed together, but she told them she couldn’t promise anything. This evening, she helped to deliver them some compensation for their tenacity and love in pursuing the case, if not — and this would have been impossible — for the loss of their son.
I’m still shocked Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder, I was sure it would have been some type of manslaughter offense.
