Listening to the rally... prosecutor in Zimmerman case recused himself!

Special prosecutor being appointed, an Angela Corey?

http://www.wftv.com/news/news/sanford-readies-travon-martin-rally-council-votes-/nLZZk/

"Also on Thursday Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi worked together to appoint Angela B. Corey (of the 4th Judicial Circuit) as the newly Assigned State Attorney in the investigation into the death of Martin. Scott and Bondil reached out to State Attorney Norman Wolfinger, and after a conversation, Wolfinger decided to step down from the investigation and turn it over to another state attorney."

More good news...

1. roaches scuttling away from the light?

I just get the feeling there are a lot of dirty people who don't want exposure. Something is under the surface here.

As I said previously: are there any other missing persons in the area? Time for someone to look into that possibility.

3. she is a repuke, of course

a couple of interesting things in her bio:
. . . .

Prosecutions

She was hired by Ed Austin in 1981 during his tenure as State Attorney from 1975-1991, and remained an Assistant State Attorney after Harry Shorstein was appointed by Governor Lawton Chiles in 1991. During her 26 years as a prosecutor, she tried several hundred cases, which included 54 homicides. In 1996, her primary responsibility became homicide prosecutions, but she also supervised lawyers in the Felony division. Shorstein changed Corey's work assignment in 2005 from director of the Gun Crime Unit to director of the County Court, which handles misdemeanors. In that position, she trained newly hired lawyers to be prosecutors. She previously served as Juvenile division supervisor.
State Attorney


. . .

The following day, Shorstein called a news conference and announced that he would retire at the end of his current term and not run for re-election in 2008. In the following election, Shorstein supported his chief assistant, Jay Plotkin. On August 26, 2008, Corey defeated Plotkin with more than 64% of the votes cast.

Upon taking office, Corey terminated 10 assistant state attorneys, over half of the investigators, and 48 support employees. In 2010, the Florida Times-Union reported that Corey sent 230 juvenile felony cases to adult court in 2009. This amounted to twice the number of juvenile felony cases placed in adult court in the years prior to Corey becoming State Attorney.
Cristian Fernandez case

In 2011 Corey's office oversaw a case in which 12-year-old Cristian Fernandez was accused of killing his two-year-old brother. Corey sought and received a grand jury indictment Fernandez on charges of homicide and aggravated child abuse, and decided to try him as an adult. This move, which made Fernandez the youngest person ever to face a murder charge in Jacksonville's history, drew criticism and protests to send the case to juvenile court instead, but Corey held that the juvenile system was inadequate to handle a crime of this magnitude. However, Corey stated she did not intend for Fernandez to stand trial or serve a life sentence, but would rather accept a plea deal. As of February 1, 2012 the defense and prosecution had not agreed to a plea deal, but were still in discussion. A trial is scheduled for February 27, 2012.

7. well, repuke goes w/o saying but

if she's a hard-ass prosecutor who likes to nail tropheys to the wall, that may be perfect.

5. Here is Corey's wiki page...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Corey


I'm not too crazy about her stance in the 12-year-old child, Cristian Fernandez, case. But then again this is the first time I've ever heard about it.

In 2011 Corey's office oversaw a case in which 12-year-old Cristian Fernandez was accused of killing his two-year-old brother. Corey sought and received a grand jury indictment Fernandez on charges of homicide and aggravated child abuse, and decided to try him as an adult. This move, which made Fernandez the youngest person ever to face a murder charge in Jacksonville's history, drew criticism and protests to send the case to juvenile court instead, but Corey held that the juvenile system was inadequate to handle a crime of this magnitude.

Must go google some more.

9. Not so sure about her either.

I also posted that Wiki link in LBN. Seems she is a record breaker for trying juveniles as adults. Be interesting to see if her hard line stance on crime fits this situation or if it is a 'technical walk'.

11. This is NOT good news. Angela Corey would have been my last pick. This is not a nice person.
