I took a chance last night and got in Twitter to check if Angela Corey’s beat down was being commented among the species that live in that particular ecosystem. I should have known better…
Those are a few examples of what was going on last night. Now, remember that in Florida, Primary candidates are voted by the registered voters of their party: Republican vote for republicans only and Democrats the same. Somehow I doubt that a lot of those cheering for her demise were registered Republicans, yet some of them had no problem taking the credit…well either that or the Republicans are going to sweep the general election in Florida.
What the race-baiters fail to mention is that Corey was an equal-opportunity tyrant, just like tyrants everywhere. Nobody in her circuit was safe from abuse and making it a race-only issue is actually distracting from the truth that our judicial system has overzealous prosecutors more intent on winning cases than seeing that Justice is done.
And as for the charge that she prosecuted Zimmerman and dropped the ball on purpose, that was a very expensive ball if you count how much the State invested in the trial and the alleged seven-figure bill that Zimmerman racked up for his defense. Somehow I don’t see Angela Corey belonging to the George Z Fan Club.
