Trayvon’s killer charged — at last

By Odd Man Out

The rickety wheels of justice rolled forward yesterday in Florida. From Reuters:

George Zimmerman is under arrest, charged with second degree murder in the [Feb. 26] shooting death of Trayvon Martin, a Florida special prosecutor announced Wednesday.

Zimmerman, 28, who’s been in hiding since news of Martin’s killing gained worldwide attention, turned himself in on an arrest warrant, called a capias, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey said at a news conference.

“I can tell you we did not come to this decision lightly,” Corey said in remarks broadcast live on TV and online. “We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition. We prosecute based on the facts in any given case, as well as the laws of the state of Florida.”

Blah blah. Corey was just setting the record straight for those cynics among us who figure the killing would have been completely ignored by the state if not for persistent public criticism. Perish the thought.

  1. Noooooooo, say it ain’t so! The authorities have actually arrested Mighty Mouse, The Defender of Truth, Justice, and The Amerikan Way?

  2. Sigh… Unfortunately, I beleive that to be true as well. The yahoos down here beleive this case was pushed to start a race riot by the “activists.” Whatever that means. All the ones on the Right that I know down there are locked and loaded even more than usual. From what I understand, there have been a few other “Trayvons” recently in Sanford, FL and the community is alarmed.
    Corey is no fool, though. She’ll be running for governor next time around.
