Angela Corey’s idea of prosecuting a case on the facts and the law

Kevin G. writes:

Angela Corey said today:

“We don’t prosecute by public pressure or petition. We prosecute cases on the relevant facts of each case and on the laws of the state of Florida.”

Except, apparently, when prosecutions are petitioned by prayer.

CNN reports:

Corey has described Martin’s family as “lovely people.” She said she has met with them and prayed with them and promised to get them answers.

Have you ever heard of such a thing? She had no cause to meet with Martin’s parents at all; they have a lawyer. For the prosecutor in such a highly contested case publicly (and religiously) to align herself with one side in this manner is a public disgrace. And it is not her job get “answers” for Martin’s parents. It is her job to decide whether a criminal prosecution is warranted. C’est tout. Aren’t Florida lawyers bound by a code of conduct?

“We simply wanted an arrest,” Trayvon’s mother Sabryna said. “And we got it. Thank you lord. Thank you Jesus.”

Separation of Church and State, what’s that?
