Trayvon Martin's Shooter To Be Charged!

George Zimmerman To Be Charged

One day after attorneys for Trayvon Martin’s shooter, George Zimmerman, withdrew their representation, prosecutor Angela Corey has made the decision to bring charges against him!!!

Corey is scheduled to make the announcement at 6pm ET in Jacksonville, Florida, though the exact charges are not yet known. She had previously announced Monday that she would NOT be appointing a grand jury to the case.

Deputies in Seminole County, Florida, are currently setting up barricades at the county jail where new inmates are booked.

Justice is on its way.

UPDATE: George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder and is in custody.

    THANK GOD!!!

    Justice for Trayvon means allowing for a fair trial. I wish people would drop the lynch mob mentality and let the case be heard without having all this hype adversely affect jurors. These protesters are acting like vigilantes - and isn't that exactly what they are accusing Trayvon's killer of doing?

    Thank God!

    Perez, I have been reading your blog for quite some time now. You are the biggest idiot out there. Your comments sound so under educated, and as long as your gay you are always in the right. Justice is served. You know nothing about this case, as we do, so how the heck do you know Justice is Served.

    Get the facts first people. After doing some extensive research on the matter, I discovered that Trayvon was certainly no angel. Apparently, he attacked first. Anyway, the list goes on… and these facts do not lie in favor of Trayvon.

    Re: kay – If he's such an idiot and his comments are so under educated, then WHY THE FUCK DO YOU READ THIS BLOG??? What's the deal with all you losers out their that read Perez all day, every day, just to make negative comments about him. I don't always agree with what he says. I often don't as a matter a fact, but if I thought he was the "biggest idiot out there," I wouldn't be reading his damn blog. That's just stupid.

    Re: Sandra – He didn't attack first. That's just what Zimmerman claimed. Get your facts straight. It was already proven that Trayvon is the one screaming for help in the background of those 911 calls. Since when do people scream for help while attacking others? Just because Trayvon was no angel, as you said, does not mean he deserved to die and it also doesn't mean that Zimmerman doesn't deserve to be charged with his death.

    Where is Eric Holder on the New Black Panthers ???
    They have put out a bounty on a mans head Dead or Alive
    You have the rasin faced Al Sharpton calling for riots
    Al Sharpton, the man who lied to police about Tawanna Brawley, which ended up causing race riots in NYC
    You have Jess Jackson, saying Zimmerman is guilty, this from a man who calls NYC Hymie Town, and yes Zimmerman is half Jewish

    Re: icecreamgirl – Someone needs temper management. I can comment on anything I want, be that negative and posative. This is my first and last time. You sound like a lunatic, just like Perez.

    Re: kay – Sorry, but you claiming someone is "under educated" then misspelling "positive" is the very definition of irony.

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – So you're saying a typo to you is under educated. Irony, REALLY !! What are 9. Had enough of this stupidity.

    Re: rosebud99 – well said….and i bet if it had been a white guy that got shot in the same manner you probably wouldnt even hear about it….and al sharpton and jesse jackson just annoy the crap out of me…..they jump on every little….oh a black person was hurt or whatever…..and dont get me wrong…..i believe the shooter was way in the wrong in this case….but those two always take every tiny issue and make it enormous, personally i think they love the attention it gives they themselves, and that it's never about the victim at all

    Re: kay – Yea "a" and "i" are located nowhere near each other on the keyboard! Lol perhaps "under-educated" much?



  15. 15

    Re: ryizzle – Will Smith didn't say that. It was reported that it was falsely stated that he did. Not saying that it isn't accurate just stating that you are looking like a dumbarse for quoting someone as saying something they didn't.



  16. 16

    Better hope they get a better jury than Casey's Anthony's or George will be free by Christmas. The prosecution for that case had a butt load of better evidence for that case and she still walked.

    Honestly, I think theres too many holes in information to send this man to prison for life. I think he should get some time though because obviously when he's carrying a gun around and following a kid, he's not exactly someone who should just be let go. The biggest thing that needs to happen with this case is redefining this "stand your ground" law so its not so open-ended. The person who said that if this was a white kid it would be ignored is absolutely right, because it did happen. So they should run with it and stop making the law seem if someone yells at you, shoot them.

    Wow, that you would assume he was guilty when he was not presumed that. I. E. The law

    How was that proved if it was not issued in court?

    Re: rosebud99 – drop the lynch mob mentality????are you speaking of the neo nazi group from michigan whose members swarmed on that community and , while all clad in black, as their leader has said, intended to protect the rights of the whites in that community who were victimized by the blacks..that were peacefully protesting??? Give me a break. This guy took a life…and like the killer of Harvey Milk…just went home….He deserves this arrest, he deserves this pending trial, he deserves a conviction…period..the message here should be that , In America, you can't follow unarmed teens OF ANY RACE…then gun them down and claim self defense….and to all of you…get out of Perez's ass…he didn't kill anyone, and he has a right to his opinion like everyone else.Just saying.



  21. 21

    Put him in jail? He deserves a medal for ridding the world of one less monkey.

    People are dumb.



  22. 22

    Well the worlds a better place without that fucking animal around. He got what he deserved.

    While I am glad Gorge was finally arrested (if you kill someone you should always at least be arrested). And I am glad those involved fell that some modicum of justice has been done, it bothers me how short us Liberals memories are.

    And how liberals don’t seem to understand that we are partly to blame for Geroge Zimmerman having that gun on his hip at all in the first place.

    While the right stays motivated and fights as long as it takes for what they believe. S liberals only seem to care when something big happens and have less motivation and dedication to liberty and democracy then a 5yr old ADD kid.

    In 2008 we all went home patting ourselves on the back about how we did a great job electing Obama, then we went home and expected him and Pelosi to do all the work and fix all the problems while we sat on our butts and watched TV.

    Meanwhile the right got organized and motivated, swept into power in 2010 while we were sound asleep at the wheel and then we act surprised when some crazy law allowed Zimmerman to do what he did.

    Liberals stayed home and allowed right wing extremist to take over the states and pass these crazy laws and we are as much to blame for George having a gun then the right wing nuts who passed the law….because we didn’t fight them.

    I hope Zimmerman rots!

    Re: tigereon – You're an idiot.

    "(if you kill someone you should always at least be arrested)"

    So if someone breaks into MY HOME and they have a weapon, and if I shoot/kill them. I have to be arrested? Idiot..



  26. 26

    Reading about it here:

    All I can is the shooter is still guilty. A boy is dead, and nothing has changed with that!



  27. 27

    Re: Sam55129 – If it was self defense doesnt mean hes guilty. You can shoot/kill someone and then you not be guilty. It's called self defense.



  28. 28

    Re: tigereon – …well said…and FYI It was G. W. Bush'e brother who passed this law…fyi.

    It's hard to tell fact from fiction. Who know what really happened? Who can get into the minds of the one who died and the one who pulled the trigger? But if we as a nation really believe in the right to own guns, then we need to realize that anyone who shoots another person in "self defense" is usually doing so without a clear and logical thought process because of the nature of fear if the circumstance feels life threatening to any person involved.
