Dershowitz: Zimmerman Prosecutor’s Conduct Entirely Unprofessional

I will continue to criticize prosecutors when their actions warrant criticism, to praise them when their actions deserve praise, and to comment on ongoing cases in the court of public opinion. If Angela Corey doesn’t like the way freedom of expression operates in the United States, there are plenty of countries where truthful criticism of prosecutors and other government officials result in disbarment, defamation suits and even criminal charges. We do not want to become such a country.

  1. Alan Dershowitz is wrong. No, Corey should have included all forensic evidence, autopsy report, witness statements and phone records to ensure that the truth was complete and not half. Where do you stop in telling the "whole" truth on a piece of paper called the affidavit of probable cause? If she had mentioned zimmerman's injuries, the truth would still not be complete. Is dershowitz saying the case should have been tried on that first day to ensure that the "whole" truth was told and nothing but the truth? Ridiculous!

  2. Tim Berton says:

    I think Dershowitz is correct. Angela Corey's investigator was questioned under oath extensively at the bail hearing, and he contradicted the affidavit more than once.

    Dershowitz is not the only legal expert who thinks Corey overcharged. The original prosecutor declined to file any charges because he thought even a manslaughter conviction was unlikely given the evidence.

  3. Cathy McCord says:

    I would rather have Dershowitz defend me then you.

  4. It's clear you 've got nothing reasonable to say.
