Trayvon Martin case: Special prosecutor will skip the grand jury.

he special prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case announced Monday that she will not take the case before a Florida grand jury — but will continue pursuing her investigation.

The news release issued on behalf of Florida State Atty. Angela Corey cautioned the public not to read too much into the move.

“The decision should not be considered a factor in the final determination of the case,” it said.

The Seminole County Grand Jury was scheduled to convene Tuesday to hear evidence in the death of Martin, a hoodie-wearing unarmed black 17-year-old who was shot Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla. The case has captivated the nation, with neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, 28, saying he shot Martin in self-defense and with black activists demanding Zimmerman’s arrest.

The decision to bypass the grand jury was unexpected. Grand juries are often used in politically controversial cases as a buffer, protecting prosecutors and politicians from controversy. But there can also be a backlash to grand jury proceedings, because they occur outside the public’s view.

In the meantime, protests continue.

A student protest is slated for Monday afternoon at Valencia College in Orlando, according to the Orlando Sentinel. And a handful of protesters — many of them students wearing hoodies — succeeded in shutting down the Sanford Police Department on Monday as part of a call for civil disobedience. The department sent out a news release saying it had temporarily closed its offices rather than tangle with protesters who had barricaded the front door.

    One woman should not have the power to bypass the Constitution’s 5th amendment and cover-up for Zimmerman, but from what I have read, I see Florida is a bed of pure evil and corruption, and a place where black people should wear Kevlar and helmets. Z will walk for the murder or be charged with a misdemeanor, because WITNOUT a grand jury, no serious crime can be charged. Everyone is marching, having played too many video games and engaged in too much la la land thinking, making them oblivious to this evil and diabolical move. The dismissal of the grand jury was equivalent to Zimmerman not being arrested. She’d Republican and Hispanic and entrenched in the system there- why am I not surprised. Well Trayvon, God still has your back. All the kings horses and all the kings men, couldn’t get justice for Trayvon Marin.

    Lincoln spoke of this, of America’s lawlessness and he gravely warned that this country would fall if it didn’t stop. It never stopped and it is falling, and now, with this additional blood on its hands, its just a matter of time. America will reap what it has sown. TM RIP.
