information technology director who
raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case

Times-Union [Jacksonville, FL], by David Bauerlein

Posted By:MelRae71, 7/13/2013 8:56:59 AM

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

This all stinks to high heaven..

The bias of Nelson, Florida Circuit Court judge and a lifelong Democrat, in favor of the prosecution and its efforts to railroad Zimmerman as a racist murderer has been palpable throughout the case. Her actions, which have actively aided the state, could poison jurors and factor into future litigation.
Her shameful rulings and behavior, therefore, are worth cataloging, and include:
• Suppressing exculpatory evidence recovered from the (double-password-protected) cell phone of Trayvon Martin that reveal deleted texts of the 17-year-old bragging about street-fighting with friends and relatives and photos showing him brandishing guns, gangsta-style. This evidence supports Zimmerman´s claim he feared Martin and shot in self-defense.
• Disallowing Martin´s criminal background, including arrests by Miami-Dade school district police for drugs, theft, graffiti and other delinquent behavior. (Martin, in fact, had been suspended from school the week he jumped Zimmerman inside his gated townhouse complex, after police found stolen jewelry and burglary tools inside his backpack.)

Have just finished reading the reader comments. If even half of them are true, it´s a bad situation. The dismissal letter just might have enough in it to cost Ms. Corey her job. Kruidbos should be able to collect damages and I hope it´s enough to allow the family to move out of the area and find a future where ethics is not a dirty word.

The SA´s office talks about "loyalty." That apparently means in this context that Kruidbos wouldn´t lie when he was under oath and being questioned in court or when deposed.

Remember, it was the genius, Jeb Bush, who appointed the lifelong democrat judge. Poor "judge"ment on his part, I´d say.

I´m hoping Rick Perry will get his act together although the thought of an Aggie president is disconcerting at the least.

Here´s a piece of advice, Rick. This time be prepared. Advice #2, run against the mainstream media and completely ignore Hildabeast, the most humiliated women in the history of the world.

“Your egregious lack of regard for the sensitive nature of the information handled by this office is completely abhorrent,” Peek wrote. “You have proven to be completely untrustworthy. Because of your deliberate, wilful and unscrupulous actions, you can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”

The managing director of the State Attorney´s office wrote a truly libelous, incredily malicious letter in firing an IT manager. Since Peek acted on behalf of Angela Corey, the State of Florida is in deep trouble. FL will owe the IT manager millions when he sues for defamation of character. When Zimmerman is acquitted, the State faces an enormous law suit for falsely accusing him. Corey´s only hope is that Obama keeps his promise and names her as Eric Holder´s replacement. Angela Corey actually believed Obama.

This has never been a prosecution of George Zimmerman. It has always been about persecution.

Figures that Jebbie is responsible for that travesty that is named Judge Nelson.

I am not in favor of frivolous lawsuits, but in this case I would say to this man, if the Governor doesn´t, or can´t get your job back, sue the pants off this harridan named Corey.

This is what happens when Obama continues to stick his camel sized nose where it doesn´t belong.

It´s hard to watch the death throes of Due Process without losing heart or hope. Disclosure of evidence is essential in a trial, especially one with such serious charges and implications.

We crossed the Rubicon when our Supreme Court genuflected over homosexuality and made it the law of the Land.

The Democrats and many Republicans have earnestly sought for the seven years, because they embrace evil thinking it good.

Regarding any comparisons between the IT guy here and Snowden, notice the IT guy here is staying in the country and taking it to court.

Snowden is still snorfing around abroad looking for somebody to pay him for his troubles. That´s cause he´s a spy.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans
Should Say No to Jeb 2016

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison.
