    BREAKING NEWS: Special prosecutor says she won't use a grand jury in the Trayvon Mart

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/

    Unless I am missing something, this means that they have decided not to pursue charges.

    CNN.com has similar news:
    Special prosecutor in Trayvon Martin shooting has decided against sending the case to a grand jury, her office says.

    I can't find the story on your link, Buck. The Special Prosecutor has said all along that sending it to the Grand Jury may not be necessary. Maybe that's what this is about. Her position has been that since Zimmerman has admitted to killing Martin, no GJ is necessary. That may be what this is about.

    Yes, I jumped the gun. I was able to find the story at George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case: No Grand Jury


    Special prosecutor Angela Corey says she will not bring the Trayvon Martin shooting death before a grand jury.

    Corey said Monday she continues to investigate the case and will not involve a grand jury set to meet Tuesday

    Corey says her decision to skip the grand jury shouldn't be considered a factor in determining whether charges will be filed against George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who has admitted to fatally shooting the unarmed Martin.

    That means the decision now rests solely with Corey

    Why would anyone in their right mind want this all on them?

    Agreed. No matter which way she goes, she's going to end up with a lot of criticsm.

    Because she probably intends to bring charges come hell or high water. It's not about truth now. Now about the law. Not about the regular standards the DA uses to decide whether or not to bring charges. It's about bringing Zimmerman to trial to satisfy the people who have already convicted him in their minds.

    CNN article here says Corey never uses GJ in trials like this and doesn't feel that it is needed. The investigation continues and there will be no further comments, she said.

    Could mean they have enough evidence as it is. Who knows?

    The thought of them having a trial and finding him not guilty brings 2 words to mind... Rodney King.

    Maybe she has political aspirations. Iow, she's not in her right mind.
    I may be wrong.
