Corey looks courageous, savvy in Trayvon Martin case so far

A lot of good stuff in this article:

Corey looks courageous, savvy in Trayvon Martin case so far

Only time will tell whether Special Prosecutor Angela Corey got it right in charging George Zimmerman with second-degree murder.

As I've said before, there's no sense trying to second-guess that call without all the facts.

But the Republican state attorney from Jacksonville has already done a few things that show she's tougher and savvier than the average bear especially the bears in these parts.

First of all, Corey stepped up to the plate and decided to bring charges herself instead of using a grand jury. That took guts.

1. I'm ready to give this lady a chance. She seems to really know her stuff and so far I have

been impressed with how she handles herself and the media. I have a feeling she's pushed Zimmerman into pleading manslaughter and, I think, that's ok with me. I think charging him with 1st degree would have been to harsh and he might have walked. I really don't think he will walk; at least I hope he doesn't.

4. I would be okay with manslaughter too.

I'm just waiting to here more information, because this case could be ground breaking on SYG.

2. I like her. And having recently done jury duty (not the full thing) I have...

...a new respect for their job.

I love how she continually tells the idiotic reporters about the process because somehow they have become so inundated with trivialities they can't be bothered to give the people a fucking civics lesson.

3. She sounds like a professional.

Professionals don't have to resort to bully or scare tactics. That's what usually happens around here because the legal authorities don't pass the smell test.
