Angela Corey and God

Angela Corey is the State Attorney in Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit Court and the person charged with handling the Trayvon Martin case. A Republican, Episcopalian woman born in Florida, Corey is no stranger to controversial court cases. Presently, she’s overseeing the case of 12-year old Cristian Fernandez who stands accused of killing his two-year old brother. Our diligent Ms. Corey managed to land a grand jury indictment of young Fernandez and is even pushing to have the 12-year old tried as an adult….sigh….I really do hope that her handling of Trayvon’s case shows a bit more prudent judgment than the Fernandez case. Today Corey announced she will not take Trayvon’s murder before a grand jury – in her defense, Florida law only requires that 1st degree murder cases be brought to a grand jury in Florida. Trayvon’s murder was scheduled to be reviewed by a grand jury tomorrow. Now the decision on whether to bring charges against George Zimmerman – the man who shot and killed the unarmed Martin – rests solely on Angela Corey. Angela Corey and God… the supreme power over guilt or innocence.

Keep passin’ the open windows…
