Angela Corey, a state attorney in northeast Florida who investigated the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. [Alan Dershowitz maintains that Corey overcharged Zimmerman and purposefully left out information critical to the case.]
She [also] prosecuted Marissa Alexander for firing a warning shot during a domestic dispute, lost the Republican primary on Tuesday for 4th circuit judicial state attorney.
One of the things she's most famous for is charging 12 year old Christian Hernandez as an adult for the murder of his half-brother based on a questionable confession (I'm not familiar enough with this case to say it's like the false confessions gathered for the Central Park 5. But I'm suspicious. Other's are too apparently.)
Melissa Nelson, a corporate lawyer and former prosecutor, claimed 64% of the vote over Corey's 26% in the fourth circuit, which oversees Jacksonville, Fla. Nelson will face Kenny Leigh, a write-in candidate who runs a men's only law firm, in the general election.
I knew we-the-people, we-the-voters, would get her! She is, at least, the third prosecutor Black Lives Matter can claim a victory over.
TAMIR RICE'S PROSECUTOR, VOTED OUT
BLM makes the cases very public and creates pressure. Then, local voters take the prosecutors out when they can.
Job well done by all.
One of the next things we need to do is work on getting rid of judges who protect murdering police officers.
