Prosecutor Will Not Use Grand Jury in George Zimmerman Case: Smart or Sketchy?

Special prosecutor Angela Corey has announced that she will not use a grand jury to decide whether or not indict George Zimmerman, the man who fatally shot Trayvon Martin, ABC News reports. She says a grand jury will not be necessary in making the decision and assures the public, "The decision should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case."

Analysts are calling Corey's decision "bold" and "shocking" because grand juries can be used as political cover in controversial cases. Prosecutors can shift the burden of the decision (in this case, whether or not to indict Zimmerman) onto the jury to avoid public scrutiny. Some suspect the reason she bypassed a grand jury in the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin case was to block racial agendas that have developed around the case in either direction. But was it the right move?

    Really, you think a school suspension is a criminal charge?!?

    You want to know what REAL CRIMINAL CHARGES look like?
    -Felony assault of a police officer
    -Domestic abuse charges
    -Providing ILLEGAL SECURITY for ILLEGAL PARTIES, that provided drugs & alcohol to minors
    -Contributing to the delenqucy of a minor by providing alcohol to a minor

    While not criminal here is what a violent past looks like:
    -Fired from job as security job because the person is unstable, aggressive and a liability to the business
    -Throwing a woman across the room and spraining her ankle in a fit of unwarranted rage

    Who is this criminally violent person you ask????
    Why one Mr. G. Zimmerman aka JEYKLL & HYDE!!!!

    Exactly. Zimmerman had all these charges yet was cleared by his father...the Judge. If they had proceeded in prosecuting him like a normal criminal, we wouldn't be mourning another child shot in cold blood.

    Zimmerman was stalking him.


    Trayvon Martin has no criminal record.
    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-5...
    George Zimmerman's story about Trayvon tackling him and beating him in the face and bashing his head into the pavement are complete lies, and here's why:

    If Zimmerman had been punched in the face repeatedly (claiming a broken nose) and had his head bashed into the pavement, then he would have marks on him. The cops that processed him would, by standard procedure, have worn gloves if there was blood present on his body. Here is a security video from the police station when he was processed: no gloves on the cops, and you can clearly see that he has no bruises or cuts on his face or the back of his head: http://abcnews.go.com/US/vide...

    Also, if Zimmerman shot Trayvon from the ground as he claims, with Trayvon on top of him, then he would have been covered in the kids blood, again requiring the cops to wear gloves. No gloves means no blood, which means he was a safe distance from the kid when he pulled the trigger.

    Lastly, when you punch someone your knuckles take damage from that impact as well: bruising, cuts, etc. The funeral director testified that he saw no injuries whatsoever on Trayvon's hands and knuckles: http://www.hlntv.com/article/...

    Zimmerman killed this kid in cold blood, he was never in any danger and this evidence proves that. If someone tells you different, remember this post.

    What's rotten about it? Most of what the people are speculating was brought to them by the media. The media has a horrible reputation with facts.

    That is my point.

    You know innocent before proven guilty? Or have we forgotten.

    That's why we have to wait... The media isn;t gonna give it to you straight. We will find out through the court process. If it so that TM did nothing wrong then the other dude will be sent to prison.

    It seems you have already judged the other guy. You weren;t there. You can't possibly know. The other can... What he has to offer is 100x more important than what you speculate.. even if it is lies.

    Oh so I should rely on the comments section for my news then?? Seriously, where do you get your news from, if not the "media"?!?

    And call me all "judge-y" if you like, but yes I do think there is more than enough information to arrest this guy!!! I never said what punishment or spoke on his guilt..... I SAID ARREST HIM!

    In the state of Florida if you shoot a dog, the police has grounds to arrest you for animal cruelty. You mean to tell me if you shoot another human, the law is soo murky that they are not sure if they can arrest him?!?

    And I think WE ALL KNOW that GZ SHOT AND KILLED TM. Or are you saying there is a question as to whether or not, what TM shot himself?!?

    Where is your moral compass BTW, where you think that lies are a good thing?
  • smitty Geenie ... 2012/04/11 17:21:40
    smitty
    What are you going to arrest him for? Apparently the facts so far lead to him not being a threat or he would be arrested.

    Sure.. let's just arrest everyone.

    If you shoot a person out of self defense, yes they won't arrest hime. Apparently you are too stupid to understand that. That's okay stupid people are allowed to be stupid.
  • Geenie ... smitty 2012/04/11 18:53:29
    Geenie Nabottle
    Yes let's arrest anyone who shoots and kills another human being.

    And we will see this afternoon when the FL prosecutor holds that press conference to announce his charges and arrest today!!

    That's fine. That is what I happen to be all about. Let the dang courts decide it instead of raking the dude through the coal. Wait.. and then rake him if you so choose.

  • smitty Geenie ... 2012/04/12 12:42:57
    smitty
    yup, I heard on the radio. Let the courts play it out. That is what they are there for. Unless you have some inside knowledge of the case or where there at that precise moment.

    We can always look at the Duke Lacrose team and that case as well. Yeah right..

    How exactly is the duke lacrosse case even remotely similar??

  • smitty Geenie ... 2012/04/13 19:49:11
    smitty
    Oh wait.. do you even know about that case? If you have to ask... then I doubt you know.
  • Geenie ... smitty 2012/04/14 00:00:36 (edited)
    Geenie Nabottle
    Sorry Charlie I know quite a lot about that case.... I'm really interested in reading how you think these cases are similar???

    I'll help you and start it out...
    Duke case
    - no one was killed
    - justice system worked those boys names were cleared
    - woman who accused them was proven to be not credible and a total loon to boot. I believe she is in jail now for stabbing her boyfriend.

    TM/GZ case
    -TM was shot & killed by GZ
    - justice system was not working as GZ was initially allowed to walk scott free after taking a life despite contridictory evidence being available to contridict his self defense claim
    - GZ has a documented violent criminal past

    I hope you are going to save face and say something like both GZ & the lady who wrongly accused those boys of rape were both pathological liars and don't take responsibility for their actions.
  • smitty Geenie ... 2012/04/14 19:01:53

    Newp..

    Similarities.

    Blacks cried racism. even though gz was Hispanic.

    The media blasted the accused without a trial. They were both shown as the "evil" white guy.


    One thing I will agree with. They should have arrested him on the spot. He turned himself in and did not run. Now let the courts decide. On a side note, I think the kid parent's are admirable in their spirits.
