Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.

Welcome to Al-Sharpistan.
“Zimmerman claim Martin threatened his life is a wild card, because Zimmerman was able to reach and fire his pistol, indicating he was not completely overpowered.”
I thought I heard at one point there was a struggle for the gun after Martin saw it tucked under Zimmerman’s shirt, but I could be wrong. I’m just glad to not live near a major inner city.
You left out the part about ignoring criminal acts: rewards offered for the murder or kidnapping of the (presumed innocent until proven guilty) defendant (if he is charged), by a racist organization--an obvious and well publicized "Hate Crime".
Let the KKK or Stormfront (equally excrable as the NBP, imho) do something similar, and the SWAT teams would be working overtime.
Atticus was eloquent but he lost his trial and his client died. Didn’t work out to well as I recall.
Just another anonymous source BS story. An unnamed person close to the prosecutor, wow, how revealing. I won’t believe it until the prosecutor has her say on Friday.
Not surprised. No way the gets fairness, not when the media tries him, the blacks and liberals, even the Con Law “lecturer” masquerading as Chief Executive and his joke of an AG Justice Dept.
Way to bow to political pressure, idiots. No wonder if Zimmerman takes off, deck stacked against him.
This is the GO SIGNAL. Repeat, this is the go signal.
Welcome to America...where have you been? This is the way justice has always been done in America. We typically cow tow to the angry mobs UNLESS the person they want to lynch is a politician.
So I guess Angela Corey won’t need to hold a press conference now?
Well, I'm convinced. The Martins hated their own son and sacrificed him to score a frivolous lawsuit. What scum!!
If he is going to be charged as early as this afternoon you would think they know what he will be charged with.
“I’m going to take some of this here crap, throw it against the wall and see what sticks”.
Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Very much saddened, yes; but not at all surprised.
I’ve spent my entire life judging people NOT by the color of their skin.
Obama, Holder, JJ, Rev. Al, Malik Zulu Shazam, et.al., are race hustling thugs who want whitey to pay. Guilt or innocence be damned, whitey must pay.
So long as Obama and Holder are heading law enforcement in this country, whites have everything to fear.
Sad, sad situation that local LEOs and prosecutors are bowing down to the black supremacist lynch mobs’ demands.
She gave Angela Corey her marching orders - that's why there was no grand jury
If it goes to trial, the so-called jury of his peers will be half black, a quarter mexican and a quarter white, but all bleeding heart democrats. He would never get a fail trial.Our justice system is running scared of the race baiters. Don’t know where he is, but if I were him I would never show my face in Florida again. Maybe he’s in Thailand. He could live a nice peaceful life there. He could pass for Thai. No one would bother him. He would fit right in with the rest of the expatriots in the country.
OK, move trial, if he is charged, to Nassau County, Florida so I can get on the jury. My first question: can I send in an absentee ballot vote?
I think the "Claire Wolf moment" is a lot like pornography. It's hard to define but you'll know it when you see it. Keep your powder dry and your head on a swivel.
Maybe the article has been changed since you read it? It now reads:
"Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation."
I guess we could doubt the WaPo's claimed source, "a law enforcement official close to the investigation."
The MSM's anonymous "officials close to the investigation" have been wrong before. I still remember a breathless "breaking news" report about Monica's "blue dress." I think this was from ABC News - they reported they had an "official close to the investigation" who leaked that the DNA stains on the blue dress had been found NOT to come from BJ Clinton. Of course, that report was wrong. I never heard an apology or a retraction.
But I'm afraid the WaPo's source is probably right. It would take great courage for a prosecutor to do the right thing in this case -- i.e., not prosecute an innocent man, just because a lynch mob demands it. Where do we ever see great political courage anymore?
