    The Miami Herald reports that the Sanford Police Department, at the conclusion of its Trayvon Martin investigation, recommended that the prosecutor file charges against the shooter George Zimmerman. Angela Corey, the special prosecutor now assigned to the case, confirmed the report:
    “As far as the process I can tell you that the police went to the state attorney with a capias request, meaning: ‘We’re through with our investigation and here it is for you.’ The state attorney impaneled a grand jury, but before anything else could be done, the governor stepped in and asked us to pick it up in mid-stream.”

    Obviously not compared to the VIDEO; it could give the Sanford PD a defense in a civil lawsuit, if true.

    So it was heading toward the grand jury before it was stopped by the governors special investigation? Is that correct?

    According to The Miami Herald article, quoting the Special Prosecutor, it could have been. Whether Wolfinger dropped it is not addressed. It should take heat off of the Sanford PD, IF TRUE.

    My first question would be.... why did no prosecutor visit the scene?

    So it was going to the grand jury and all the BS and race baiters slowed the process down? Caused the state to send it to special procecutor and start it all over. How stupid is that? People need to learn to shut up and let these things go through due process, instead, irresponsible idiots that think they know better have possibly screwed up the case. I have said along everyone needs to pull back and let our justice system work and it seems it was working slowly, racist baiters need to learn to shut up and quit pretending they are so smart.

    I don't know if they were called that evening, but if the Sanford PD did recommend charges, it should remove one agency from the blame game.

    Asked to confirm that the police recommended a manslaughter charge, special prosecutor Angela Corey said: “I don’t know about that, but as far as the process I can tell you that the police went to the state attorney with a capias request, meaning: ‘We’re through with our investigation and here it is for you.’ The state attorney impaneled a grand jury, but before anything else could be done, the governor stepped in and asked us to pick it up in mid-stream.”

    A capias is a request for charges to be filed.

    Well there you have it.
    The race baiters once again make idiots of themselves by once again jumping to GIANT conclusions and whipping themselves into a frenzy.

    I love this line...“We get capias warrants all the time. That doesn’t mean we file charges right away. We investigate to see if it’s appropriate. That’s the responsible thing to do.’’

    Imagine that you freaking morons...in this country you are assumed innocent until proven guilty. If the idiots in the media and the race baiters would have waited to see what happened - he would probably be in jail right now. But no...

    That might be the case also, Wolfinger might have been still in the process of investigating or may have declined to call in the Grand Jury, In any event, if true, Sanford police did what they had the authority to do.
