Today I received an email from a loyal reader named Melissa. Melissa wanted to share her concern about Florida State Attorney Angela Corey possibly sabotaging the Trayvon Martin murder case by charging his killer with 2nd degree murder.
Melissa accused Corey of taking on the Trayvon case for political reasons — to gain back Republican support after she charged 12-year-old Christian Fernandez as an adult for sexually assaulting (and murdering) his 2-year-old brother in March 2011.
If convicted, Christian, now 13, will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Melissa wanted me to spread the word about this great injustice done to a 12-year-old kid.
Like most people with an agenda, Melissa conveniently left out the fact that Christian also sexually assaulted his 5-year-old brother on a number of occasions.
In my opinion, that makes him a sexual predator and a future pedophile. As I told Melissa in my response to her, Christian can not be rehabilitated. Some kids are born with a lack of empathy for the suffering of others. I believe Christian is one of those kids that you can’t teach to have empathy for others.
It’s better to lock people like him away from society for the public’s safety. I just feel sorry for the ones he is locked up with.
I am sure Melissa means well, but Christian Fernandez is a sick kid. Read an excerpt from her email after the break.
I really think you hit the nail on the head in your article about Angela Corey potentially sabotaging the case against Zimmerman. I am very concerned that Trayvon and his family will not get the justice they so clearly deserve. I have been advocating for a child who was 12 when charged by Angela Corey in the death of his brother. He did not intend to kill his brother and his own mother waited eight hours to take the child to the hospital upon learning he was injured.
The doctor who treated him said if she had acted sooner he might have survived. Despite this and the fact that multiple psychologist examined Cristian and said he was amenable to rehabilitation she went ahead and sought a grand jury indictment for murder and aggravated child abuse. The mandatory sentence is life without the possibility of parole. She is doing this to a child who now has been taken from his family. His mother and father’s parental rights have have been terminated. He has no one. His other family is in the Dominican Republic. Please take a moment and read this write up I did on the case:
