Dumb and Vicious: Prosecutor Angela Corey in the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case makes a fool of herself and threatens Alan Dershowitz

Dumb, vicious and out to make a political name for herself...
Nancy Grace needs some outrage competition!  
Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection notes that Corey has created an ethical dilemma for herself now:
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?
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...

  1. Isn't this the same state that produced the witch hunting US Attorney General Janet Reno?

    If they could put up with falsifying children's testimony, why is this at all a surprise?

  2. That shade of lipstick is too dark for a woman of her age. And it reinforces the Corey is Evil image.
