George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old neighborhood watchman who shot and killed Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., has been charged with second-degree murder in the 17-year-old’s death. Zimmerman is being held without bail.

“Just moments ago we spoke with Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the sweet parents of Trayvon,” Angela Corey, the special prosecutor investigating the case, said at a news conference in Jacksonville. “They now know charges have been filed, and that George Zimmerman is in custody.”

“We did not come to this decision lightly,” she said, declining to discuss specifics of the investigation. “We’re law enforcement. We enforce the law.”

Zimmerman turned himself in and is in police custody in Florida, Corey said, but would not disclose where he is being held.

    NO GRAND JURY INDICTMENT! This is NOT JUSTICE, this is a mockery. “The sweet parents of … “? This country is turning completely lawless, total tyranny. It won’t matter which way this goes, it won’t satisfy these “people”.

    • This should have remained with the grand jury where they could decide whether or not to charge him. Based on the fact that the DA dismissed the grand jury and elected to charge him on her own, I would surmise that the grand jury was probably prepared to state there was insufficient evidence to charge him. Eric Holder and the Justice Department are crawling all over Florida. I am guessing they put pressure on the DA to dismiss the grand jury and charge him.

    We either have a Constitution or we don’t. If we do, then this is unconstitutional. If we don’t, then what do we have?

    • Since 1865 and more precisely since 1913, we have not had a Constitution. We operate under a democratic system–hence the tyranny. To these people, the Constitution is something that they pay lip service to, but they don’t believe in it because to do so would limit their power.
