Zimmerman prosecutors sued by fired IT worker who revealed state didn’t turn over evidence report to defense; Update: Corey’s checkered past

posted at 11:21 am on July 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

Zimmerman’s suing NBC, Martin’s parents are (probably) suing Zimmerman — isn’t it time that someone sued the one actor in this case whose motives were most provably malign?

Maybe this is a first small step in sending Corey to join Mike Nifong in disgraced-former-prosecutor obscurity.

Ben Kruidbos, Corey’s former director of information technology, was fired after testifying at a pre-trial hearing on June 6 that prosecutors failed to turn over potentially embarrassing evidence extracted from Martin’s cell phone to the defense, as required by evidence-sharing laws.

“We will be filing a whistleblower action in (Florida’s Fourth Judicial District) Circuit Court,” said Kruidbos’ attorney Wesley White, himself a former prosecutor who was hired by Corey but resigned in December because he disagreed with her prosecutorial priorities. He said the suit will be filed within the next 30 days…

The six-page letter, dated July 11, charges Kruidbos with “deliberate, willful and unscrupulous actions” that make him untrustworthy and calls his questioning of de la Rionda’s actions regarding the cell phone evidence “a shallow, but obvious, attempt to cloak yourself in the protection of the whistleblower law.”

A straightforward whistleblower action or a smokescreen? Take five minutes to read this Florida Times-Union piece published on the day Kruidbos was canned. If I have the timeline straight, in March the office investigated a security breach of its computer system due to suspicions that someone had improperly accessed employees’ health information and disciplinary records. Two employees were suspected, one of whom was Kruidbos. On April 3, eight other employees were removed from his supervision and his access to the computer system was limited, but he was never formally accused as a result of the investigation. Sometime that same month, he contacted White about his suspicions that Corey hadn’t given his report on Trayvon Martin’s cell-phone data to the defense — although, apparently, the defense did receive the source file from Martin’s phone, from which they extracted data. On May 16, Kruidbos got a raise for meritorious performance; twelve days later, Corey finally found out that Kruidbos had gone to Zimmerman’s defense lawyers to let them know about his cell-phone report. He was immediately placed on leave and ultimately fired on July 12th, supposedly because he had “wiped” a computer in the prosecutor’s office in violation of state law on May 24th. (Kruidbos denies this.) The obvious question at trial, then: Was he canned because of a pattern of questionable behavior unrelated to the Zimmerman case, even though apparently none of his supposed improprieties have been proved, or was he canned because he exposed some of Corey’s Zimmerman-related shenanigans? If it’s the former rather than the latter, how come she couldn’t wait until the trial was over to suspend and then fire him? Sure sounds like she’s sending a message to would-be whistleblowers in her choice of timing.

I tucked this clip of Alan Dershowitz destroying Corey into a “Quotes of the Day” post a few days ago but it deserves more attention, especially what he says about her being the true civil-rights violator in this case. Take note, Eric Holder.

Update: The perfect complement to news of Kruidbos’s lawsuit: Read Ian Tuttle in National Review about Corey’s history of “retaliation and overcharging.” Can we get the cable nets to air daily coverage of this trial too? Sounds like the plaintiff’s witnesses will be dynamite.

Lowry said that about March of 2012, when the story broke and people were screaming for an arrest and charges.

I don’t know or care what he is saying now, after the trial and verdict. Nor do I know how much coverage NRO gave the trial. I suspect very little, like most right-of-center sites.

I think many prominent people on the right assumed Zimmerman would be found guilty of something, and then that would be that. Zimmerman just had to have done something wrong, right? Because an unarmed black kid who was doing nothing wrong was dead. And a guilty verdict for something would appease the race baiters and hustlers.

Appeasement of the race hustlers and the Black Grievance Industry seems to be a deliberate strategy for some on the right. They quiver and shake at the mere thought someone might toss the R-word at them.

So, with Miss Jeantel’s revelation today that Mr. Martin thought that GZ was a homo-rapist, and went back to give him a much deserved beatdown, because he wasn’t ‘that kind of way’,….
I guess we all misunderstood during the trial when we thought she called GZ a

Al Sharpton Is Right

George Zimmerman should be charged.

by Rich Lowry

What is true of the stopped clock is also true of the perpetually aggrieved, shamelessly exploitative publicity hound: Through sheer chance, he occasionally will be right…

The Trayvon Martin case appears to be one of those instances for Al Sharpton….

So, Sharpton and his usual complement of allies are right about this: The Sanford police appear to have made the wrong call in letting Zimmerman off.

Meanwhile the Sandford PD and the assigned DA were saying they did not have probable cause to charge Zimmerman with anything.

Enter the Wicked Witch of Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit, special prosecutor Angela Corey. Whom NRO is now trashing.

Folks…The Cultcha has spoken…

” As NewsBusters previously reported, Stevie Wonder on Monday told a Quebec City concert audience that he was boycotting Florida and other states with “Stand Your Ground” laws as a result of the George Zimmerman verdict.

Apparently not to be outdone, Bruce Springsteen on Tuesday dedicated a song to Trayvon Martin during a concert in Limerick, Ireland.

According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Springsteen saw a sign in the audience for the song “American Skin.”

For those unfamiliar, “American Skin (41 Shots)” was about the 1999 police shooting death of Amadou Diallo in the Bronx. The incident set off a firestorm at the time given the number of bullets fired by the four policemen who were later acquitted of all charges.

On Tuesday, after seeing the sign in the audience, Springsteen grabbed it and said to the crowd, “I want to send this one out as a letter back home. For justice for Trayvon Martin.”

Although first performed live in June 2000, Springsteen began featuring the song again during his 2012 tour often dedicating it to Martin…”

And that’s a good strategy because we all know appeasement of bullies, demogogues, thugs, and tyrants works. It worked for Chamberlain and Daladier and it works on schoolyard playgrounds. Right?/s

Their clumsy attempts to steal that election for Tree by re-writing Florida election laws after the election had already taken place were soundly rejected by the Supreme Court of the United States.

Despite this, most if not all of those 8 Democrat Activist Justices were handily re-elected the next time they ran for re-election. What a state!

Al Sharpton is an IGNORANT race-baiting, race-profiteering, race-pimp! In the middle of a rant about how evil Florida’s ‘SYG’ law is and how Zimmerman got off on this horrendous bill he had to be told Zimmerman’s defense did not use the ‘SYG’ law…that ‘SYG’ had NOTHING to do with the Zimmerman defense of trial!

For the record, we need a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law as much we need a ‘Hate Crimes’ law! We don;t need ‘SYG’ because, as the Zimmerman case showed, ‘Self-Defense covered it. We don’t need a ‘Hate Crime’ charge because we already have laws to cover it. If a MAN attacks another and kills him (for example), we have 1st Degree, 2nd Degree, 3rd Degree, Manslaughter, etc.

The ‘Hate Crime’ charge is supposed to say killing this guy (for example) because of acertain prejudice is more heinous than just killing him. Really? The individual is pretty much still DEAD. The NAACP & other rae-pims say the overall goal is to get to a point one day where all people are treated equally and color is totally ignored….then why did we create a special criminal charge to benefit people of color or difference? Shouldn’t everyone be charged the same if everyone being treated the same is out goal? …just sayin’…

Ready for the next case, kids?

(CNN) — Right on the heels of the George Zimmerman trial, another controversial and tragic self-defense case is making its way to court. This time, the scene is Jacksonville, Florida, and the story involves Jordan Davis, an African-American teen the same age as Trayvon Martin.

Davis, 17, was shot to death by Michael Dunn in November 2012.

Dunn told police that he asked Davis and three other teens, who were parked next to him at a gas station, to turn down their music. Dunn says he heard threats from the teens and saw a gun in their car. He says he feared for his own safety, and that’s why he grabbed his gun and fired into the vehicle.

Trial starts September 23rd.

I think the problem with the verdict in this case was the de-emphasis on race and the presence of stealth jurors on the jury who were influenced by O’Mara’s year-long campaign, aided and abetted by the media, to acquit his client in the court of public opinion.

I believe B-37, and possibly two others, lied their way onto that jury determined to vote NG, regardless of the evidence. If I’m right, they should be prosecuted for perjury.

Corey is a political opportunist who needs to be fired, exactly like what happened with Nifong. And disbarred like him, too. Worse is her idea she could have any influence in the firing of the likes of Alan Dershowitz — who gets more respect from one of classes than Corey is getting from half the country.

It took a while for Nifong to get his just desserts, so it might take time for Governor Scott to get around to doing the right thing when dealing with Corey.

Iblis on July 17, 2013 at 2:19 PM

Scott appointed her precisely because she was prepared to file murder charges without regard to probable cause. That job required an end run around the grand jury and the filing of what Dershowitz described as a “perjurious affadavit” in support of the charging information, which is in these circumstances grounds for disbarment. (I’ve read the affidavit, and Dersh is right.) She also repeatedly violated her sworn duty to provide exculpatory evidence to the defense.

This case is an example of one of the most important justifications for the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard of evidence in criminal trials. When the national news media is whipping up a frenzy of hate and the political tools are perverting the power of the state in an effort to railroad a guilty verdict for reason of their own, the deck is already heavily stacked against the defendant. On evidence that simply failed to justify the charges, a corrupt governor used a corrupt tool of a prosecutor to file a totally unjustified murder charge. A gutless judge not only let the case go to trial but did everything in her power to assist the state. (You don’t need a Weatherman to know which way the wind blows when the judge is fighting with defense counsel as the prosecutors look on smiling.)

“It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.” Sir William Blackstone, 1765

The reality of human frailty means the perversion of power is inevitable. One of the reasons for the “beyond a reasonable doubt standard” is the acknowledged danger of injustice when the massive power of the state is maliciously misapplied.

‘African-Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African-Americans. But approximately one third of Florida “Stand Your Ground” claims in fatal cases have been made by black defendants, and they have used the defense successfully 55 percent of the time, at the same rate as the population at large and at a higher rate than white defendants, according to a Daily Caller analysis of a database maintained by the Tampa Bay Times. Additionally, the majority of victims in Florida “Stand Your Ground” cases have been white.

African-Americans used “Stand Your Ground” defenses at nearly twice the rate of their presence in the Florida population, which was listed at 16.6 percent in 2012.

48% willing to tell a pollster they agree with the verdict probably translates to 72% actual approval. The full-tilt BS campaign from start to finish was designed to convince people it was an open-and-shut case of racial profiling, stalking, and murder, when it was none of those.

We already know about the inadmissible evidence of burglary, the jewelry which matched stolen property from local burglaries but which school police filed as “lost & found” despite a “burglary tool” being found in the bag with them, and the drug use. It is hard to say if the suppressed evidence of Martin’s violent nature and street-fighting on his phone will ever be released.

One thing is clear: Martin was no shy little boy eating Skittles in the rain. He was a violent thug or thug wannabe who bragged about sucker-punching knockdowns, beating “be-yotches,” and using drugs, and was no stranger to theft. Zimmerman’s suspicions were entirely justified, as were his every single action.

A violent black punk chose the wrong pudgy little white guy to beat up, and the streets are safer for it. If only more media and public figures were willing to admit that and to state it clearly.

Thanks. Its personal with me. I worked for 12 years as a public defender in one of the most crime-ridden and corrupt counties in the country. I have seen evil scum like Corey in action. The soul-sucking oppression they impose on their employees is sickening, and the human damage they leave in their wake is incalculable. That they typically waste or syphon off large sums of taxpayer dollars is probably the least of it.

In a one-party county government, these types often control the entire county government. If you stand up for yourself in any way, let alone openly defy them, they will try to destroy you. And I mean destroy. They will use their oppressive rule to intimidate the employees they control; everyone knows the consequences of fraternizing with an enemy of the machine. They investigate everything you have ever done, looking for something embarrassing to expose or use as leverage.

In short, they are evil, destructive sociopaths who should never hold public authority.

Jenteal lied on the stand. There’s no such thing as an ‘asscracker’ that means anything related to homosexuality or rape……

Geeze. That was just a joke / snark… Not supposed to be taken as legal testimony or anything…
I was blending two completely different statements from the same person, for the sake of entertainment.

I guess I have to label everything, even the most obvious as {/s } from now on, for this current Hot Air audience.

But, but, but . . . the whole reason the entire world is a mess is because of MEN! If women were in charge, everything would be better!!!

Good. GZ should sue every last a**wipe in FL and the slimestream media that he can.

As for Corey … I seem to recall a lotta commenters here at HA (and bravo we were all right) being quite suspicious of and underwhelmed by her when she announced Zimmerman’s indictment and stretched her “15 minutes” way longer than the mere 2 minutes to which she should’ve been limited cuz the slimestream media had to have its moment.

From Ace…

Much See TV: Al Sharpton will interview Rachel Jeantel tonight.

The closed captioning guy just hanged himself. He left this note: “Avenge me.”

In the good days of America, people with a checkered past were shunned, now they’re elected into office. Checkered past deserves jail time, or a minimum wage job. Want to know why America is bankrupt, in total disarray, and doomed? We have a government and judicial system full of idiots with checkered pasts.

I agree with you! The race hustlers and AA lawyers aim their indignation in the wrong place. Blacks have probably been steamrolled by this bunch by using the same tactics they attempted on Zimmerman!! I no longer trust the judicial system! Seems to me the way Hitler or Stalin must have run things!!

And the Corey goes, “Moo!”
