2 Florida officials step aside in teen death probe

Is this old news? On earthlink news:


SANFORD, Fla. (AP) The police chief and prosecutor who have been bitterly criticized for not arresting a neighborhood watch volunteer in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager both left the case Thursday, with the chief saying that he is temporarily leaving his job to let passions cool.

Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee's decision came less than a day after city commissioners gave him a "no confidence" vote, and after a couple of weeks of protests and uproar on social media websites. Lee has said evidence in the case supported George Zimmerman's claim that the Feb. 26 shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was self-defense.

"I do this in the hopes of restoring some semblance of calm to a city which has been in turmoil for several weeks," Lee said.

About three hours later, Gov. Rick Scott announced that the local state attorney, Norman Wolfinger, had recused himself from the case. In a letter to Scott, Wolfinger said that while he thought he could fairly oversee any prosecution that develops in the case, his recusal was aimed at "toning down the rhetoric and preserving the integrity of the investigation." Scott appointed Angela B. Corey, the state attorney for the Jacksonville area, to take over the case.

1. Scott appointed someone who prosecuted a 12 year old

Oh, yes. THAT sounds fair. The Alien wouldn't know what is fair if it slapped him in the face.

It's really hard to find articles on her. A google search is bringing back tons on her being named the special prosecuter.

She has raised hell because they removed the money fro a catwalk from our new courthouse so she would not have to go downstairs and cross the street from her office.

The damn thing would have cost over a million dollars and the building is way over budget.

There is another story about her reading emails of employees in her office trying to find who is leaking info critical of her to the local press.

She's evil...period.

8. The FBI is involved in the case.

I think that is why we are seeing the rats flee the ship.

5. She loves to send kids to adult court. So it makes one wonder if she will put the victim on trial.

9. How about Do Your Fucking Job.

Maybe that'll maintain the integrity of the investigation.

10. They're not well practiced with process in this County.

They have learned to cover-up everything. It's a way of life for them.

"No one has ever asked us that."

Yes, that's actually an excuse for not knowing things they should know.
