FLORIDA,Â July 14, 2013 â Since an all-female six-member jury in the central Florida port city of Sanford acquitted neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin on Saturday evening, attention has turned to prosecutor Angela Corey.

I would like to see more about Bondi’s ties to these folks to help enrich them. Seems to me that the governor and Bondi simply fell into the trap of letting radical political pressure scare them into acting. Don’t get me wrong, Bondi deserves a heap of criticism for this whole charade. I am just not prepared to say it is to enrich friends, unless I see some real evidence.
this is not unusual for our state, we are always sold out.
We are run by republicans and yet they always sell out when they get power.
So both Bondi and Scott need to go?
Bondi is done, she might as well become an info reader at msnbc or “theview”.
>> Bondi deserves a heap of criticism
Heap of criticism my eye. Bondi deserves to be drummed out for her role in this travesty.
Scott needs to answer for his feckless behavior as well.
And Corey needs jail time.
TheView, yes, that would be the perfect job for her.
I don’t know about Bondi, but Angela Corey is the one who should really feel some heat. Unfortunately, criminal prosecuting attorneys are protected from tort liability for malicious prosecution by prosecutorial immunit.
But something is wrong when a prosecutor has free reign to overcharge, and as in this case, make Mr. Zimmerman a marked man for life, with no recourse.
Just maybe Hispanics will learn from this liberal attempt to lynch GZ that life is not what it appears to be on the democrat plantation. Hispanics will always be playing 2nd fiddle to the Klan With A Tan who hate them for taking black jobs. (like they wanted to work, HA)
Lets see how far Holder’s people in the Just-Us department will go to twist, distort, destroy or create evidence in order to use government sanctioned discrimination to lynch GZ for good.
One of their most prized propaganda tools, NBC, stands to lose a whole lot of money if Holder cannot put GZ behind bars for life or even the death penalty for these bogus civil rights Flaws (sp deliberate)
I must have missed it but who is the conservative republican in office here in Florida?
Bondi is a bimbo who whispered “Angela Corey is the answer” into Rick Scott’s ear and, like the political adolescent that he is, he followed her advice. Neither should be re-elected.
Not surprising; Bondi isn’t to be trusted. She was a Romneybot picked by Mitt to push his socialized healthcare on the states.
if Scott folds on Obamacare who needs him ... who ever needed Bondi ... a progressive in the pockets of the banks and the lawyers guild?
never said conservative, I said republican and yes every time we elect we get sold out but then again we now have Crist running and no doubt the trolls will be on sites like this pushing their crap and saying I;m staying at home in order to suppress the republican vote

PAM BONDI, FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Well, Piers, first let me tell you. Ive spoken to Trayvons parents. They are amazing, sweet, kind people. My heart goes out to them. Im actually friends with their attorneys Ben Crump and Daryl Parks. Theyre wonderful lawyers who are representing them.
What my I have no legal role as attorney general in the state of Florida. That authority is left to the state attorneys. But what I did do was I discussed with the governor the appointment of Angela Corey, a special prosecutor in Jacksonville whos well removed from the case. Shes absolutely excellent. And the Florida Department of Law Enforcement are now involved in the case.
The reason, Piers, I cant comment on Stand Your Ground, whether that applies here because there are too many unanswered questions. And, you know, thats why the family is rightfully upset. When you have an innocent 17-year-old boy walking home with Skittles and an iced tea and hes killed, you have to have answers, not questions. And thats what we need in our state.
MORGAN: Yes, I mean, look, I am encouraged by what youre saying. Its good that a senior lawmaker in Florida is saying all this, but in the end, you know, I remain like many people absolutely bemused that somebody can shoot somebody in cold blood, an unarmed young teenager.
And so, I mean, I just think with your legal training and your legal background on what appears to be a very empathetic attitude towards this case, it might be quite powerful for the attorney general of Florida to say publicly, you know what? This guy should be arrested. He should be interviewed under caution and he should, if necessary, face charges. But he should be at stage one of the legal process of being under arrest.
BONDI: Well, what weve done is appoint a special prosecutor. And thats what shes doing. Conducting a thorough investigation because we need to get Trayvons girlfriend to cooperate which I dont know if was happening previously. And they may have had good reason for that. But shes cooperating now. And again, a thorough investigation is being done to ensure that justice is sought for that family.
But you cant make an arrest until you interview all the witnesses, Piers. Nor do you want that to happen because a speedy trial could run. And then thats we dont want that to happen. And all I can tell you is we have a great prosecutor on the case. We have great law enforcement agencies. The Department of Justice is looking at this. And I firmly believe as you do that we need to have justice for the death of this innocent young man who was walking home to watch a basketball game with Skittles and an iced tea.
the FL GOP who let Allen West drift in the wind isn't going to let anyone primary Bondi
“central Florida port city of Sanford”
Idiot(s) in press cannot tell that an ‘inland city’ is not a ‘port city’. It’s at least 100 miles upstream along a winding river.
I will stand corrected if a freeper can tell me where I am wrong.
