No Grand Jury Appointed For Trayvon Martin Case

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

Trayvon Martin Case No Grand Jury

It's been recently reported that the Trayvon Martin shooting case will NOT be brought to a grand jury.

A statement from Angela Corey’s office, the special prosecutor for the case, reads:

"From the moment she was assigned, Ms. Corey noted she may not need a grand jury. The decision should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case. At this time, the investigation continues and there will be no further comment from this office."

A grand jury was set to meet tomorrow, until Corey made her decision today.

In Florida, the only murder cases requiring a grand jury are those of first-degree and Corey has "a reputation for not presenting cases before grand juries if it wasn't required."

Maybe she feels she has enough evidence to bring charges already??

Ben Crump, the lawyer for Trayvon’s family, said:

"We had hoped she had enough evidence without the need to convene a grand jury. The family is trying to have patience and faith through all of this. We know we want that day to come. We want a very public trial so the evidence can come out and show people that the justice system works for everybody."

We sure hope that’s what happens, too.

Though no grand jury will be used, George Zimmerman, Trayvon’s shooter, could still be arrested as early as this week.

We wish the Martin family the best during this extremely difficult time.

    The Special Prosecutor is fearful of going before a Grand Jury and having the case end without recommendation for indictment. Zimmerman will be indicted by the SP for manslaughter.

    Zimmerman did nothing wrong. The punk jumped him and and was on top of him throwing punches. Self defense 100%. Jessie and Al should spend their time trying to stop black on black violence instead of instigating a racism to line their own pockets!



  3. 3

    THis enitre situation could have been avoided if these two men did not have such attitude probolems. Zimmerman is clearly a wanna be cop with issues. He should have stopped following Trayvon when 911 told him to do so. For his part Trayvon could have very simply answered the question "what are you doing here' Instead these two idiots decided to assert their authoprity and prove that they were a man.

    So a white person can only defend them selves against another white or they are racist.

    First of all: Zimmerman is not white .. so it has nothing to do with race. Second: Did you not see the marks all over Zimmerman and the huge gashes in his head. I'm sorry, but more went on here then is being reported. Yes, It's a horrible situation for everyone, but I don't think Zimmerman is 100 percent at fault here…

    Re: Winner – It's not self defense when I see someone walking down the street and I pursue them even though the 911 dispatcher tells me not to. It's people like you who are the problem. I don't care for Jesse and Al either, but with all do respect, this story was an issue long before either one of them became involved and their feelings about this case means squat to me. What I care about is that a seventeen year old kid is dead because some privileged son of a retired judge with a criminal record, felt he could be Judge, Jury, and Executioner.

    To be perfectly honest, I don't even think this is just about race with Zimmerman. I read about his previous encounters with the law and how his parents who were both employees of the judicial system were able to make phone calls to get him out of trouble. Zimmerman is a paranoid invidual with a strong sense of entitlement. When he murdered Trayvon, all he did was up the ante. If he isn't prosecuted for this, there will be a shit storm that arises and ground zero will be Florida. Not to mention, once again, Zimmerman will have gotten away with another crime and nothing will deter him from killing again.

    Re: Winner – Cant make money there!!! There will be a racial war in this country and it will happen on Obumas watch and he will say: O! Did I do that!!! WATCH!!

    I also think people need to realize where the information about this incident is coming from… THE MEDIA! The media only get's 5% of the story and twists it to make one side look better and writes something that causes people to read it for the news' sake. I guarantee 95% of this story is unknown to the public. I find it funny how people like Jessie and Al are coming down and causing a spectacle and saying if he's not arrested there should be a shit storm. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? How are people supposed to look up to you when you are causing violence and more drama then is needed. This story is not about race - I think it was a freak accident. Zimmerman has obvious signs of a physical altercation and I think people need to about more than just Trayvon. People want to bring up Zimmerman's past and wrong doings, but what about Trayvon? He's had run-ins with the law as well. People can be sooo one-sided. Yes, it is horrible, but I think in the long run the legal system will do what's best. Let the law handle the situation. All these events and rallies for Trayvon are ultimately doing nothing but causing drama. The law and legal system will come through and do what's best… Leave it be.

    JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON!!! JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON!!! JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON!!! JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON!!! I don't care if the kid was black, white, or latino like Zimmerman. THAT MURDERER SHOULD ROT IN JAIL!!!!! And do you idiots still feel like it was self defence? REALLY?! After all the evidence? Okay, switch things up. Imagine it was a black man who killed a white kid. Still feel the same way? Yeah didn't think so. STFU!!!!!!!!!!!

    @babycakes Trayvon answer what question? Who the hell is Zimmerman to be asking anyone anything he's defiantly not the police. He is a citizen just like Trayvon was a citizen and I would be angry and afraid ( that probably why Trayvon started running) too if some strange man was following me and stacking me

    @ Fergie Zimmerman had no gashes or bruises he did not even go to the hospital and according to the video footage showed no sign of injury

    Re: OMG – "First of all: Zimmerman is not white .. so it has nothing to do with race." What an ignorant statement. So…only white people are capable of being racist?! WOW!

    - Do you not see the back of his head??? Trinigirl - you're making this a race issue.. it's not. kthnx

    KarrieBelle: It's not an ignorant statement and that's not what I meant. I probably should have been more clear.. it's comments like trinigirl123's comment that make me say something like that. I've also heard numerous times from the media that people aren't doing anything because a white guy killed a black kid. I should have been more clear. You're right, anyone can be racist.



  14. 14

    I don't think it matters whether Zimmerman was guilty or not…He's a marked man and he will never get ahead ever now.

    I told my bff who is black and lives in Orlando.. this can't be racial profiling because he was hispanic. She said hispanics are natorious for being prejudice to blacks especially in Florida. I lived in Orlando for a year 2011 and when I was walking out of the grocery store this car with 3 black guys pulled up to a hispanic girl and the girl started yelling at the car " get out of this town, don't you know the puerto ricans run this town" AAAHHH I ran my white ass to my car. Florida is FULL of crime. I lived in a really nice subdivision and houses were getting broken in left and right. Bad place to raise your kids!!!!

    Really the only problem I personally see with this case is that the fight lasted only less than 1 minute. You mean to tell me he shot him over a 1 minute fight? I would have to say guilty on just that.

    Re: bargyles – I agree .. No one is going to change their mind now..

    I wonder if they will find Trayvons finger prints on the gun? That clearly means to me he was trying to hold Zimmerman's hand down while the gun was in it. I think thats when Trayvon started screaming for help. So sad!

    The Trayvon Martin case is part of the Obama marketing plan - Whites -vs- Blacks.
    Thus we have a "White Hispanic."
    -
    Although distorting the video and audio by NBC, then picked up by ABC, CBS, CNN etc. was just something added by over zealous underlings, the media and the Prez wanted a lynching party.
    -
    They have achieved the kind of divide the OJ case did.
    -
    What happens next in the case does not matter. It has served its purpose.
    -
    The fake but accurate stories will continue till the reelction of Obummer.
    The Black vote will be 'rightiously agitated' and turn out for Jughead.

    Re: KarrieBelle

    The dispatcher has absolutely no authority. They are clerks and not sworn police officers.

    The Grand Jury should be looking at NBC.

    It is amazing how disgustingly weak America citizens have become; both physically and mentally. Only real Men and women should be allowed to carry guns. If 150lbs boy can beat you to the ground, you should be smart enough to stay in your car. You should know that about yourself. You shouldn’t confront him and say ' I got this gun for back up'. It takes an adult to handle a weapon properly. It takes an adult to handle this situation properly. Frankly, Zimmerman is not a mature adult… period! Not even close. I understand this country and know that Zimmerman may just get off due to how weak private citizens are and how scared they are to leave their houses; and they believe that carrying guns is the answer. ITS NOT THE ANSWER. I am a gun owner, I am certainly not advocating against them!! Zimmerman should be prosecuted for being both physically and mentally weak. He should go to jail for not being MAN enough to handle this situation the right way. He should have stayed in his car. So now a little boy is dead because a mentally weak individual could not properly make grown up decisions while carrying a loaded hand gun. GUILTY OF STUPIDITY, JAIL TIME, LOSS OF GUN CARRYING PRIVLEDGES

    Some of the comments on here I truly disgusting. I can't believe some of the stuff people have said as a comment. The fact is that an innocent 17 year old boy was killed for NO GOOD REASON. Who the hell cares about race!? Some of you need to get a life. You can say all the evil, selfish things you want online but we all know you dont have the GUTS to say that stuff to someones face. Punks.

    what you see here is a goup of people who have nothng to do and no where to be every day. people who are productive members of society don't have time to assemble for such nonsense.

    Re: Dragonslayer – I never said that the dispatcher has authority. But they to advise you to do what's best and safest. If a person calls 911 and says that they see someone walking down te street, wearing a hoodie and they feel threatened, the dispatcher isn't going to say "Get out and hold him down until help arrives." The dispatcher advised Zimmerman repeatedly to stay on his car and not to pursue Trayvon because that was what was safest. Had that idiot listened, a seventeen year old kid armed with nothing but an iced tea and a bag of skittles, wouldn't be dead.

    remember what happened when Rodney King got no justice? #Just sayin'



  29. 29

    Innocent people die every day, why does this child get so much attention? Why isn't the 13 yr old white boy who got burned by 3 black kids getting any attention? It was right after this occurred and the black kids said "this is what you get white boy". That is a straight up hate crime.

    There is a lot on the internet written about Seminole County, in general, including a website by an ex-cop called Many who are familiar with the underbelly politics of the area feel that the Trayvon Martin case is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many, many cases of elder abuse and financial exploitation of the elderly approved through the courts and judges of Seminole County that have also gone completely non-investigated by law enforcement when the families have cried out to Seminole County law enforcement for help. There are also seven other Black men–all dead–never investigated–Seminole County. There is also Judge Sloop who was disbarred after he told the bailiff to take all the people for traffic court, put them into a side room, then he asked the bailiff to go back to the empty room and announce that court was in session. Then, since no one was there, he ordered all the people in the side room arrested for not showing up ("Contempt of Court") and strip searched. I used to work as a news reporter in that town for the Sanford Evening Herald and was specifically told to never cover any stories of a controversial nature. Just stick to who caught the biggest fish of the week. So, there's more than just the "biggest fish of the week" going on in this little, Southern town. There's something truly fishy going on that needs to be investigated by the Department of Justice.

    Re: Kayla – So tired of WHITES killing and robbing????? Surely, you must be joking. According to stats, most black people are killed by other black people. I don't know the facts in this case. Neither do you. We will all know when the facts are released by some one reputable, because the media sure ain't it!! It is very sad that this boy is dead. Along with all the other black victims as well as all of the white victims that are killed by black people. Of course that is not reported so much on the news.

    Everybody's acting like they were actually there, including the marchers in the pic above… Anyway, good detectives will be able to reconstruct what happened with a lot of accuracy. The story along with the witnesses and crime scene will tell the tale. The questionable part is any possibility of letting any shooter skate without a heavy duty inquiry to fine tooth comb and ascertain the crime scene facts.

    It always makes me laugh at how idiotic Americans are. Their mindsets generally fall under "I'm completely oblivious as to what goes on around me until I watch a viral video the I know everything there is to know" The same goes for this kid.

    A man has been tried and convicted in public court on the basis of a allegation. So sad our country hasn't evolved any further. These people are acting exactly the same as what mobs did in the 1800s trying to find witches LOL. People are so quick to jump on a bandwagon they know nothing or little about. Much like the Kony 2012 campaign. Fact of the matter is, this guy is now considered guilty by the public without having any actual facts. Hardly anything has been released to the public except a video of him being brought into the police station. When Geraldo Rivera said something there was an uproar..But a black guy can tweet the address (wrong address mind you) of the alleged killer and no one says anything? Are you morons that fucking stupid? People are incorrectly making this a race issue. Where was the uproar when a WHITE guy got shot by a black guy solely for being on a basketball court eh?

    Can I also throw in how the liberal media purposely used pictures of him when he was still 14 years old? Instead of showing what he currently looked like. 6'3” a grill on his teeth and prison tats. This monkey or wannabe thug mouthed off thinking he was the shit and then got popped.
