More Hanky-Panky in the Zimmerman Trial

July 13th, 2013 - 11:06 am

Really, Florida — really?

State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office’s information technology director Friday after he testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over information to George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

The letter contended Kruibos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents, and noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

This just stinks of corruption.

There's a Police Chief out there who should get his job back, with back pay, since his judgement was clearly validated.

She should be removed from office and disbarred.

"This just stinks of corruption."

"Stinks" is a mild word. The miasma rising from the prosecution on this case ought to be banned by the EPA.

Ben Kruidbos' firing is just the very tip of a gigantic iceberg of corruption in this case. If you want an idea of the depth of this "Matris-Of-Sleaze" go to theconservativetreehouse.com and read the article entitled "A Nation of George Zimmerman's Awakened-Understand the Fraud". It gives you an overall view of what this trial was really about and why Obama felt inclined to put his foot in it. Plenty of links for you to do your own research on this abomination of attempted mis-justice if you care to. If honestly investigated there is abundant reason for a BUNCH of lawyers connected with this case to be not only dis-barred but put in prison! Educate yourself and be afraid!

There is a sanctions hearing coming up, about how the presecutors kept vital, and possibly exculpitory information, from the Zimmerman defense team.
Ms. Corey went out of her way to defend this prosecution as a search for the truth. When one of her own staff hit her over the head with some truth, she fired him. Gov Scott needs to just lay down some old fashioned house cleaning in Corey's office.

Well, looks like they just made him a rich man. I am sure he went straight from his door to an attorney's office. He will sue, and they will have to pay. Any jury is going to give him this.

Here's what I don't understand: Logically, Glenn Reynolds is right. Obama and Holder shouldn't want a conviction on this, they should want an acquittal so they've got something to rev up the black vote with next year. But the prosecution is acting like this is a case where the conviction "justifies the means".

So, is this just the local government trying to avoid race riots? Or is there something else going on? The only other thing I can think of is just the simple joy of rubbing your opponent's face in his powerlessness.

neither NBC News nor ABC News had any mention of this termination, despite non-stop coverage of trivialities. i doubt CBS did any better, but i didn't see them. it is hard to imagine that our msm could be any more worthless.

The corruption was clear when Corey skipped out on the Grand Jury (that would have said there was no evidence to convict). Between the removal and appointment of prosecutors and the firing and demoting of officers that didn't give them the answers they wanted - this is about as surprising at the sun rising in the morning.

so much for whistle blower protection laws. it is probably up to Holder and the DoJ to protect this guy. like that could happen.
