Possibly fearing reprisals from the New Black Panthers who are threatening a “bloody Race War” publicly announcing a Bounty for the capture ‘dead or alive’ of Zimmerman, threats from Al Sharpton of ’no justice no peace’ or statements from the Martin Family attorney warning of riots in the streets,
Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as this afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.
It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.
Martin, 17 and unarmed, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self defense. Police in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, did not charge Zimmerman, citing the state’s “stand your ground” law.
Corey told reporters Tuesday night that she would hold a news conference about the case within 72 hours. A news release from her office said the event will be held in Sanford or Jacksonville, Fla.
