When the news that Zimmerman was being charged with Murder in the Second Degree hit the wires, a great disturbance was felt across The Farce. When almost every single defense lawyer and former prosecutor very politely and without stridency comments for the media that Angela Corey might have overreached with the accusation, you know they are saying “Holy crap! She f***** by the numbers.”
Everybody was expecting a Manslaughter charge. It is the one to with a substantially less burden of proof and with a stiff penalty. If Ms. Corey’s strategy is to gamble that Zimmerman will take a plea and quickly sweep everything under the rug, I think she is whistling Dixie in the dark. And it did not help her cause one bit the way the affidavit of probable cause was written: It reads less like a legal document and more like she copy and pasted selected quotes from different newspapers during the height of “Let’s Get Zimmerman” craze.
Two words no Florida prosecutor wants to hear are now starting to bubble to the surface: Casey Anthony.
Nancy Grace surely is licking her lips with anticipation on this one. Let the legal games begin.
