Justice for Trayvon!!!!
State Attorney Angela Corey has decided not to use a grand jury in her investigation into the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin:
The grand jury, scheduled by the case’s previous prosecutor, was set to convene on April 10.
A statement released by her office said that the decision “should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case.”
Corey was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott last month to take over the investigation. At that time she said she may not need a grand jury.
Corey, the state attorney for the Jacksonville area, was appointed to take over the case after the local state attorney, Norman Wolfinger, recused himself.
Monday’s statement said that the investigation continues, and declined further comment.
The decision to press charges now rests solely with Corey, whose reputation was to not present cases before grand juries if not required under state law. (In Florida grand juries are only required in cases of first-degree murder.)
Zimmerman’s friends and family believe he is innocent of any wrongdoing. But an attorney for Martin’s family says Zimmerman should be put on trial.
“When you look at this evidence and evaluate it, I think the consensus is there must be an arrest in this case,” said Martin family attorney Natalie Jackson.
Almost 2 months have gone by without an arrest in the tragic death of Trayvon Martin, this is positive proof that our legal is broken. Justice is coming for you Zimmerman. #HoodiesUpForTrayvon!
