Angela Corey is following her forerunner in her position, Harry Shorstein, in outdoing him in terms of falsely accusing people (Christian Fernandez) as he did (Brenton Butler), subjecting herself one day to scrutany and unlike Harry, a community that may take the case of Florida vs. Zimmerman into a excuse to do something rash. If she continues on this path she may have a bad rap that will need to be topped by her successor.
Brenton Butler was a boy of fifteen who back in 2000, was falsely accused of murdering a tourist in front of her husband at a local hotel. He was subjected to a false accusation by the husband (you know that old "they all look alike" excuse). He then was forced to make a false confession. However, he was aquitted at his trial later than year when photographs were shown by the defense to back up the defendent's claim that he was beaten by the cops in the case into confessing. Juan Curtis and Jermel Williams were late tried and convicted for the crimes. (Williams turned states' evidence and helped convicted his co-conspirator. Though Curtis had the orginal life sentence overturned, he was convicted again in 2004 and sent to prison with double life sentences.)
We know that Angela Corey overcharged Christian Fernandez, but in the case of George Zimmerman, accusations from the press of undercharging this older guy is much in order. Either way, she faces a rope that is about to snap. She has the nerve to charge first degree murder and sex charges against a boy of eleven but flauts with not charging Zimmerman with the same type of charge facing Fernandez, even though Fernandez is around two or three years younger than the victim in Zimmerman's case! Here you see how much hypocracy Ms. Corey has when it comes to black people. When there is clear evidence that the mother was responsible for the death of a little boy, she pleads guilty to lesser charges while her little boy is slapped with more serious charges, despite Ms. Corey saying she did not intent to charge the boy as she eventually did. So much for the truth.
Right now in the media blitz surrounding Ms. Corey's case, hardly anyone is comparing Zimmerman's case with that of Fernandez, though both of them are facing murder charges. One would wonder if Zimmerman would face murder one if he had white skin or if somehow, he tried to deceive the cops about who started the events that lead to the death of a boy of sixteen.
Now that Ms. Corey has Zimmerman in a jail cell, one has to wonder why she has a boy of thirteen in a jail cell when he is more innocent than Zimmerman. It is clear Zimmerman killed Martin in cold blood for being dark-skinned, walking around at night in a gated community and not stopping before he shot him. There is a good reason citizen watch groups should not arm their people or let them carry a firearm, but why did George Zimmerman carry one that night?
And to see the abuse of the system, if mentioned before, see "Murder on a Sunday Morning", an Oscar winner from around 2001. I have yet to see it, but have plans in the future to screen this one involving another dark chapter in Jacksonville's history.
Oh yeah... almost forgot Ms. Corey went to the same high school as Brenton Butler, though in differnt decades.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brenton_Butler_case
