|Dumb, vicious and out to make a political name for herself...|
Nancy Grace needs some outrage competition!
Corey now has made the prosecution a personal issue. Will she conduct the prosecution in such a way as to achieve justice, or to set herself up for a personal lawsuit against Dershowitz and Harvard?Update:
Corey certainly has a right to protect and defend her reputation in civil actions, but she cannot interject those concerns into a prosecution. By threatening suit against a critic in the middle of the case, Corey has put her own financial interests at stake in the outcome and conduct of the prosecution.
Florida has adopted American Bar Association Standards of Criminal Justice Relating to Prosecution Function. ABA Standard 3-1.3 Conflicts of Interest provides in pertinent part:
(f) A prosecutor should not permit his or her professional judgment or obligations to be affected by his or her own political, financial, business, property, or personal interests.
Corey should step down. Now.
At least this is pretty. The Zimmerman prosecution just stinks. And there is a lynch mob mentality driving it.
More from Sister Toldjah!
Angela Corey does not have the temperament to be a prosecutor and has been thuggish before...
