More than a few eyebrows were raised Wednesday when Hispanic special prosecutor Angela Corey announced her decision to charge George Zimmerman with 2nd degree murder in the Trayvon Martin murder case.

In a spectacle of a press conference, that was beamed live into millions of homes, Corey announced she was charging Zimmerman with 2nd degree murder instead of manslaughter -- a charge that has a better chance of winning a conviction.

Zimmerman gunned down 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in cold blood as he walked back to a friend's house in a gated community in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon was unarmed, carrying only his cell phone, a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea in his pockets.

Opinions in the case are sharply divided along color lines. Trayvon is black. Zimmerman is white and Hispanic.

Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, was never charged in the case. And Sanford police chief Bill Lee told Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, there would be no arrest in the case. That was 46 days ago.

Thousands of outraged Americans took to the streets in peaceful protests, and the case made headlines around the world.

But Corey has made it nearly impossible to win a conviction against Zimmerman.

"I predicted manslaughter, so I'm a little surprised," said Michael Seigel, a former federal prosecutor who now teaches law at the University of Florida. "But she has more facts than I do."

In fact, everyone predicted manslaughter in a case that screams for justice.

It doesn't take a law degree to see how Corey has sabotaged this case.

In order to win a conviction, the prosecutor's office must convince a Florida jury that Zimmerman acted with a 'depraved mind' when he shot and killed Trayvon.

A manslaughter charge - that he acted without premeditation -- would be much easier to prove.

Our only hope now is that a judge with some common sense knocks the charge down to manslaughter. Otherwise, Zimmerman will walk -- and Corey knows it.

    BITCH FCK U!

  • Doc Holiday

    Manslaughter is more appropriate given the current circumstances, but they can always lower the charge as the trial goes on, and a jury can lower it also. With this, they can maybe go to the mindset of Zimmerman, that he was the aggressor with the ignoring the 911 operator and having a gun on him approaching an un-armed person. Good move on her part.

  • http://Www.yallaintchit.com Man, I just don’t care™

    :think:

    I think they hoping he agrees to plead to a lesser charge and then they can come back with "we didn't want to take the chance of him going scott free." Or some bullchit like that.

    I'm surprised they haven't stated what was the trajectory of the bullet. Kinda hard to be "self defense" if Trayvon was shot in the back.

    As used in this subsection, the term "criminal prosecution" includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.
    (2)A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force as described in subsection (1), but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.
    (3)The court shall award reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant is immune from prosecution as provided in subsection (1).

    When video model, Vanity Wonder, first landed into the blogging streets boasting 32-23-45 measurements, the vast majority of women were quick to call it what it was….fake.

    Men, on the other hand (being the sometimes gullible creatures that they are), said that women were just “hating” on her for having such an amazing waist to hip/ass ratio. She has now come forward to say that she’s not only had ass shots, but she’s had 16 (illegal) procedures to enhance her figure.

    On her website, Shot Girls Book, she talks about meeting men and women in strange places and having her ass injected with an unknown substance placed in a Dixie cup, and then having the injection site closed with superglue….all for the love of curves.

    right, never satisfied. if the jury has the option to drop it down, i don't see the problem with it. that fool's history of calling the police so much they knew him by his first name shows that he was on a mission. the fact that he patrolled w/a weapon showed that he was prepared to kill somebody. and the fact that he got out of his car and confronted trayvon coupled with his negative description of trayvon to the police shows enough intent to me!

    Trayvon's mother should not have said what she said unless she really feels that way. We can't knock the woman for expressing how she feels.

    I'm sure Trayvon's father doesn't feel the same way and if the legal team is smart, they will stress the fact that the father does not believe so. Hopefully, this will balance it out :shrug:

    _________________

    So what? Let them be up in arms. We're trying to put Zimmerman behind bars. A prosecutor's job is to make sure she can win a conviction against a defendant. There is NO WAY she can win a 2nd degree murder conviction against Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. She will have to prove that he acted with a 'depraved mind' when he shot Trayvon. You can bet Mark O'Mara is going to run that 'depraved mind' crap into the ground. It will be easy for a jury to have reasonable doubt because the requirements for 2nd degree murder are much harder to prove than manslaughter. Also, no jury in Sanford, Florida is going to send Zimmerman away for life.

    @65 - The beef is, that black people don't See reality the way that reality presents itself. Have-a-look! Trayvon's parents 'think' that some jesus is bringing them justice, when it is 'we the people' who made this happen! They should rightly 'Thank Us'. Not that I'm upset that they don't know any better, but hey, it's Time to wake-up and SEE the Facts. Not just the fact of this here case, but the Facts of what's going on all over this planet! We all are Trayvon! And we all don't want to be like GZ! So, what is 'wrong' with what I've said??

    Maybe I misinterpreted this wrong, but this is a criminal case and no civil action has been taken as of yet…The wording is confusing to me! What does it really mean??

    Basically its going to cost him a fortune to defend himself. As it should! However, if the courts (jury) finds him Not guilty they would then be responsible for court costs (The state of Florida that is)etc. The prosecutor I believe is a no nonsense pitpull in a skirt attorney with a reputation to uphold. She emphasized that the decision she made was not because of the public scrutiny surrounding this case but because justice needs to be served. If this back fires on her it will cost the state of Florida dearly if in fact she REALLY did impose the 2nd degree murder charge to satisfy the masses. Let's hope she wont have egg on her face in the end though. By subsequently sabotaging the case per Auntie's observation. :(

    @Sandra by giving him the 2nd degree murder charge it is almost guaranteed that the charge will get changed to manslaughter by the time it goes to a jury, if it goes to a jury. You should consult some lawyer friends for a more thorough explanation. This was a manslaughter case from the beginning and Corey knows that.

    from cnn.com:

    In addition, although Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder, even if the jury rejects the self-defense claim and believes the killing was homicide, they may choose to convict of a "lesser included offense" such as manslaughter. Manslaughter is still a serious felony, although it carries a lower penalty than murder.

  • RachelRachel

They will always walk all over you for your 'False Beliefs', while they know Exactly what The Truth is! Do some research on the subject and you will find out that it ain't whatcha think. It ain't even Close!

  • Ty

    I think 2nd degree is the right charge. From my understanding all the specialists have confirmed that they was indeed Trayvon pleading for his life. If that is confirmed, the charge is on point because Zimmerman would have killed him out of spite. Secondly, if a plea deal is offered he can still plead down to manslaughter right?

  • goat76

    Doc Holiday says:

    Manslaughter is more appropriate given the current circumstances, but they can always lower the charge as the trial goes on, and a jury can lower it also. With this, they can maybe go to the mindset of Zimmerman, that he was the aggressor with the ignoring the 911 operator and having a gun on him approaching an un-armed person. Good move on her part.

They are going through the grieving process and I believe that the father is still in shock and the mother is moving towards trying to rationalize what has happened because no one wants to believe that their child was killed in cold-blood. It would be too painful to think that a human being would murder your child simply because they had no regard for that person's life and did not value your child the same way you did.

    I believe what you say about churchs. Even though i go occasionally it's to celebrate in a way I have not the words to articulate it. However I feel it. A church is just a building of brick God is indeed everywhere and in everything. Sometimes I think the church blinds you to pray for help outside of yourself, it relieves YOUR responsibilty for your choices and you sit around and wait for this "thing" in the sky to save you whether than you changing yourself. I understand it's hard to explain somethings to people without coming off as anti-GOD but its from lack of knowledge that they attack.

    Definition of Second Degree Murder

    The crime of Second Degree Murder occurs when a person commits either:

    Murder with a Depraved Mind or
    Accomplice Felony Murder

    Murder with a Depraved Mind

    Murder with a Depraved Mind occurs when a person is killed, without any premeditated design, by an act imminently dangerous to another and evincing a depraved mind showing no regard for human life.

    The primary distinction between Premeditated First Degree Murder and Second Degree Murder with a Depraved Mind is that First Degree Murder requires a specific and premeditated intent to kill.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Defenses to Second Degree Murder

    In addition to the pretrial defenses and trial defenses that can be raised in any criminal case, specific defenses to the crime of Second Degree Murder are:
    Excusable Homicide

    The killing of a human being is excusable, and therefore lawful, under any one of the following three circumstances:

    When the killing is committed by accident and misfortune in doing any lawful act by lawful means with usual ordinary caution and without any unlawful intent, or
    When the killing occurs by accident and misfortune in the heat of passion, upon any sudden and sufficient provocation, or
    When the killing is committed by accident and misfortune resulting from a sudden combat, if a dangerous weapon is not used and the killing is not done in a cruel or unusual manner.

    Justifiable Homicide

    The killing of a human being is justifiable homicide and lawful if done while resisting an attempt by someone to kill you or to commit a felony against you.
    Self Defense

    Also known as the justified use of deadly force, self defense is a defense to the crime of Second Degree Murder. Please view the Florida Self Defense section for more information.

    I do not think she is trying to sabotage the case. I sincerely think that she is trying to get him a life sentence. Black people are looking for the easiest way out. It is not up to her to prove George Zimmerman's innocence...that is up to O'Mara. Just the reaction of many Blacks to this charge shows how little we value the life of another Black person. Why are we settling for less? Why don't she go for the highest charge that could mete out a harsh sentence? So you wear your stupid hoodies and march your stupid marches...for what? So you can complain when a HISPANIC Prosecutor charges a socio-path with a rightful charge? This is a brilliant charge and perhaps this HISPANIC Prosecutor is valuing the life of TRAYVON MARTIN more than the hoodie/marchie crowd. How 'bout that? :rolleyes:

    Manslaughter and second degree murder are committed on the spot, but the two differ in the magnitude of the circumstances surrounding the crime. For example, a bar fight that results in death would ordinarily constitute second degree murder. If that same bar fight stemmed from a discovery of infidelity, however, it may be mitigated to voluntary manslaughter (from wikipedia)

    I say 2nd degree murder fits better

  • DoNotDeleteMe

    Sandra,

    George must fight for his innocence...and the important element will be if he will even be able to use SYG. He has to win immunity from prosecution under SYG...which is a daunting task for him (and I do not believe any judge would want to run the risk of granting him immunity under SYG). If he does not win immunity, then he will have to take the stand in his own defense and the Prosecution will have a field day. He has nothing to rest his laurels on except his credibility. At least the parents will have answers because I am sure that the Prosecution will question him hardcore (although I believe that once GZ does not win immunity, he will plea bargain and end up in prison on manslaughter anyway because he will not want to endure a trial or face the real possibility of a life sentence...so kudos to her for shooting for the stars and possibly landing on the moon...it is better than the initial slap on the wrist)

    And many Black people do not understand the depraved mind specification...and that is why they resigned to complete and utter defeat before the ink dried on the warrant.

    If this was an accident or not depraved George Zimmerman would have attempted to save Trayvon Martin's life by yelling immediately call an ambulance and trying CPR or some other life saving measure like stopping the bleeding. The fact is once he realized what had happened he got up and was walking around. He showed no concern for Trayvon Martin who lay on the ground fighting for his life, thus depraved indifference!

    The most daunting task will be for the Prosecution to establish George's intent when he got out of his vehicle...and the Prosecution has more evidence than we do. GZ was licensed to have the weapon, he was told it wasn't needed for him to follow but it could be argued that the 911 operator did not state clearly enough NOT to follow. Finally, was there intent to kill or was it just an intent to use force? THAT IS THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION, UNFORTUNATELY! :cry:

    The first part of the 2nd Degree murder (depraved mind) is pretty open and shut...you have a victim (Trayvon Martin)

    I hear you Mocha, but I'm going to resign from this fight right now. The mother is a typical Southerner, who backs down when the going gets tough. I know all about this because I know quite a few Southern folk, who will make all kinds of excuses for the shocking behavior of some rotten ass people in the world. They get afraid start making lots of excuses, and then everything becomes "The lawd this, and the lawd that."

    I don't blame her for being afraid, because you know she's getting some nasty klan message sent to her daily. And she is probably scared shtless for the remaining child she has left. I often look at that child when they are on television. He looks scared to death! I always watch him.

    But this is no time for her to be playing the good ol' mammy role when so many people have got her back. She's on an emotional roller coaster and doesn't realize what she is saying. Nobody stalking someone late at night with a loaded gun is making a mistake when they wrestle with your child and point a weapon at them. He had already subdued the boy, and knew the police were coming. Yet he pulled the trigger anyway.

    And I really believe all of that stuff that he said Trayvon was saying to him; he was saying to Trayvon. How are you gonna tell somebody with a gun "Tonight you're gonna die" when they still have the gun on them?

    George must fight for his innocence…and the important element will be if he will even be able to use SYG. He has to win immunity from prosecution under SYG…which is a daunting task for him (and I do not believe any judge would want to run the risk of granting him immunity under SYG). If he does not win immunity, then he will have to take the stand in his own defense and the Prosecution will have a field day. He has nothing to rest his laurels on except his credibility. At least the parents will have answers because I am sure that the Prosecution will question him hardcore (although I believe that once GZ does not win immunity, he will plea bargain and end up in prison on manslaughter anyway because he will not want to endure a trial or face the real possibility of a life sentence…so kudos to her for shooting for the stars and possibly landing on the moon…it is better than the initial slap on the wrist)

    Excellent points!
