With the national tragedy that is the death of a 17 year old boy at the hands of an HOA neighborhood watch volunteer, it’s only fair to examine why this case was prosecuted at all. As noted by this blogger before, there are many tragedies in this case, not the least of which is the killing of a boy on a rainy night as he zig-zagged through an unfamiliar neighborhood.
Still, the elements for a successful prosecution of the neighborhood watchman were never there. They were never, ever there. And exculpatory evidence that should have freed George Zimmerman immediately, was illegally withheld from defense attorneys.
If America is not a nation of crystal clear laws, then it’s not a nation at all. It’s a rogue state just as unstable and as unethical as the worst example of out-of-control leaders in Zimbabwe, Uganda, and Ruwanda, and Libya, and Venezuela.
If we don’t have the law, the set of rules and restraints on our government set out by our founding fathers, then we are the worst of the worst. Of course, we have stains on our past, but what country emerging out of the chaos of the 18th Century didn’t?
But in one of the most celebrated criminal investigations of the new century, we have a prosecutor with blood on her hands and murder in her heart, who was willing to sacrifice her career over taking a pound of flesh that was never hers to take.
Angela Corey was not one to find justice for George Zimmerman, she was there to make sure that the national race machine did not fail to bleed the Zimmerman team for every political point it could. Damn who’s truly guilty or innocent. “Just bring me St. Paul’s Head on a Platter. I’ll be satisfied with nothing less.”
This case is really taking on some ugly tones.
It’ll get uglier in the days ahead.
