Representative Will Weatherford Speaker of the Florida House 420 The Capitol 401 South Monroe Street Tallahassee, Florida 32399-1300 Dear Speaker Weatherford:

Monday, August 05, 2013

The record and following timeline reveals the Martin-Zimmerman case was a travesty to justice and the rule of law. 3-12-12 – Chief Lee states no evidence disputing Zimmerman’s statement of events 3-13-12 – Case turned over to State Attorney Norm Wolfinger/NAACP sends letter to Holder, DOJ 3-20-12 – DOJ announces investigation 3-22-12 – Chief Lee temporarily steps aside. Wolfinger recuses himself;1 Governor Scott appoints Angela B. Corey, an unethical and dirty prosecutor from Jacksonville to take the case. 4-2-12 Race pimp Senator Chris Smith convenes task force to examine changes to Florida’s self-defense laws. 4-9-12 Corey decides against Grand Jury.2 Screw the rule of law. A politician proclaiming to be a prosecutor will decide if this case is prosecutable. 4-11-12 – Corey announces second Degree Murder Charges against Zimmerman 4-20-12 – Lead Investigator Dale Gilbreath there is no evidence contradicting Zimmerman’s statement at bond hearing. 7-13-12 – Judge Kenneth Lester disqualified because of bias and negative remarks he made about Zimmerman. 8-30-12 – Circuit Court Judge Debra S. Nelson officially assigned to the case. Trial begins, .6-13-13 – Zimmerman Trial begins 7-13-13 – Zimmerman acquitted. Now the news reports you want to enhance this travesty by messing with or revising Stand Your Ground that condones the unethical and criminal behavior that follows.  Angela Corey submitted an affidavit that was misleading and perjurious.  Her conduct was criminal because she violated the rules.  Angela Corey purposely overcharged this case. Her political views overrode her legal obligation to ensure fairness under the law.  Halfway through the trial she realized she was not going to get a second-degree murder verdict, so she asked for a compromised verdict - manslaughter.

"Outraged by the outright lies" contained in a letter written by the attorney of Trayvon Martin's parents, who are seeking a federal review in the case. 2 A grand jury is a legal body that is empowered to conduct official proceedings to investigate potential criminal conduct and to determine whether criminal charges should be brought

 Realizing she was having trouble proving manslaughter, she said she was going to try to charge Zimmerman with child abuse and felony murder. Fortunately, she backed off knowing Judge Nelson would not publically allow this abuse of privilege and the rule of law. On the last day of trial, when the attorneys were giving their closing arguments, an investigator from the state attorney’s went to Ben Kruidbos' home at about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos "can never again be trusted to step foot in this office." Mr. Kruidbos was the state attorney’s IT tech who discovered information on Trayvon Martin’s cell phone that law enforcement was able to extract. Since the information was exculpatory because it showed criminal and other behavior, Mr. Kruidbos worried this information did not reach the defense. Consequently, he spilled the beans telling the court he feared the prosecution violated the Brady law that commands requiring sharing exculpatory information with the defense. Judge Nelson said she would impose sanctions, if any, after
the trial. This blatant abuse of power has nothing to do with the rule of law, but everything to do with politic s. The Zimmerman case is another reminder why the Founders included the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights. It exists as a constitutional right to protect Floridians and all Americans from lawless tyrants like Eric Holder, Angela Corey and others take away freedom and do harm if they can get away with it. .

The corruptness inherent in both the political and judicial system seen in this case also tells the average citizen they have no place to go to find justice. This case also shows the system will attempt to hide criminal activity to achieve a political goal or make a political point.. Your decision to hold hearings on settled law like Stand Your Ground shows your Aspen education is having an effect or you are caving in to pressure by race pimps like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Senator Smith, and Eric Holder. Either way, your decision is an act of cowardice making you unfit for the constitutional office you hold. Yours in the Bill of Rights,
