    What's not hard to understand is I ruffled your feathers and got you upset. It'll be alright though you just hang in there.

    Not that covers the 3 counties that Corey is responsible for. For a high profile case, I can see him using Jacksonville since it was taken away from another State Attorney that covers Sanford county. I don't know his connections to other cities but I know he use to live here so I'm assuming he picked someone he was comfortable with. I'd have to look back and see how much money and donations might have played a part in him assigning Corey to handle it though.

    Not following you. What has Duval, Nassau, and Clay counties (where Corey works) to do with Seminole county? Are you saying there was no one else around Seminole county who could have been appointed?

    It's simple. if Corey is guilty of a witch hunt then Scott is guilty of putting her in the position she could do so and possibly, by tacit approval, of being guilty too. After all she chose to bypass a grand jury which O'Mara brought out yesterday in his interview.

    I said she couldn't have done any wrong there because Governor Scott appointed her.

    I'm am not implying she did anything wrong in that case, River... I'm surprised you missed the sarcasm...

    Can't even imagining this ever happening when Ed Austin and his team ran the office. They attracted sharp prosecutors who are some of the city's finest attorneys today. Once Harry Shorstein took over, the culture changed.

    To her credit, Angela is a hard nosed prosecutor....she's tough as hell. This may be a case where public pressure to prosecute led to a case being filed that should have been dropped. That still does not explain not turning over all the evidence.

    Whistleblower case? Guy just doing his job, and he gets fired for it. He should file suit.

    Absolutely...

    Scott is as guilty as an employer is guilty of DUI manslaughter whose driver who kills another person after having six beers at lunch, then drives his work truck back to his place of employment.

    I am glad you finally figured out what was wrong with your initial claim. Progress.

    If the employer knows the driver has a history of drinking problems and they give tacit approval to it then you are finally on the right track.

    Your histrionics over this is really quite amusing. Are you really that in love with Scott?

    In love with Scott? No. I am in hate of ignorant people...

    I am amused that you can ascertain the 'histrionics' of someone by merely reading their posts, however... Ignorance knows no bounds.

    Well when you run from one post to another shouting "Hall did/said this, or Hall did/said that" your histrionics are on display. And if you are having problems with self-hatred maybe you should seek counseling.

    The case was taken away from that state attorney, Norm Wolffinger, in that county because he didn't find evidence to prosecute Zimmerman and Governor Scott had to do something right or wrong to quiet tension so he turned to State Attorney Corey to handle it because of his connections to Corey and for the largest area she is responsible for...maybe to him she had the best resume to handle this trial. I don't know his exact reasoning though but it seems to me I would pick a state attorney from a larger metropolitan area like Jacksonville to handle a high profile case. He had no choice but to get away from the Orlando area and Jax happens to be the next closest which happens to cover 3 counties.

    Sure, there may be other counties but you don't want a no name covering smaller areas to handle a high profile case. You pick someone whom you know like Corey rather than placing it in the hands of someone you don't know.

    Or you pick someone you know will return an indictment. I believe that is well within the range of possibilities which cover why he picked her.

    I'm looking fwd to finding out more about this story. Scott probably picked her for an indictment, but the withholding evidence is on her and its huge. The judge knew about it and deferred a ruling on it? I wonder why O'Mara didn't make a bigger stink about it already? If GZ is found guilty, could it mean a whole new trial with Trayvon's phone info included?
