Prosecutor to make announcement soon in Martin case

A special prosecutor plans to release new information within days about the controversial case involving 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, who was shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Angela Corey said Tuesday the information will be released in the next three days. Her announcement came the same day that attorneys for George Zimmerman, who says he shot Martin in self-defense, told reporters they had lost contact with Zimmerman and no longer represent him.

"He has gone on his own. I'm not sure what he's doing or who he's talking to," said Craig Sonner, Zimmerman's former legal adviser. "If he wants us to come back as counsel, he will contact us."

    Mr Zimmerman has gone into hiding so he wouldnt be killed by the animals related to that vermin he was forced to exterminate. Smart move on his part!

    Thank emporor nero(obama) who was tickling his toes in marthas vineyard and playing golf while his administration is awarding bonuses to the gsa for wasting the taxpayers money while his propoganda machine(cnn)gives a biased story for the race baiters to run wild with so he can divert your attention from his scandal.

    In the interest of full honesty, the announcement will be "We have enough to charge, but not enough to convict, but we'll charge anyway because everybody is screaming for blood."

    If Zimmerman is not charged based on evidence and there is any rioting in the streets, there isis going toto be some action by the police, with live ammunition.

    You may correctly be assuming worse case.

    Oh yeah. I know what I was going to say. It doesn't matter if the blacks riot. His majesty obamo will support and protect them. So will Eric Holder. As Holder said, they are his people.

      It's really okay to NOT think negatively and to NOT make any situation worse by our words (albeit, a daily feat). We can choose to rise above, right? It's a choice...an active choice, right? Thanks so much!

      you may now exit LA LA land.

      Step back into reality.

      BHO and the so called Justice department don't care about the turth.

      George is guilty before proven innocent. Haven't you been watching the news or marches that have been going on?

      The black patherns put a bounty on this guy's head.

      Get real.

    Won't convene a grand jury? Maybe she's afraid the grand jury will vote not to indict? Then what?

    I do not think that this delay is caused by an attempt to obtain evidence against Zimmerman.
    I think that the prosecution already knows the relevant factors in the case, and that the probability of dangerous rioting as a result of releasing all known information necessitates extremely thorough planning of the public-relations aspect of the full disclosure.

    This is just another reason we need to vote out obamo in November Eric Holder refusing to go after the black panthers.

    Dooms day is approaching. 99%, Union Thugs, Black Panthers, WallStreet protesters are all posed to start the crazy stuff. You want see the National Guard called in, but it might get very ugly – who knows how this will all end?

    There goes Florida again... From hanging chads to this...

    Can't get a break.

    An "only-for-show" charging of Zimmerman for anything at all, even with the expectation of acquittal, would allow a cooling-off period and diminish the impact of any riots resulting from this media-provided baraccone.
