In the summer of 2013 the confessed killer of Trayvon Martin (an unarmed 17 year old) was put on trial for second degree murder in Sanford, Florida. Many people still want to know why the prosecutors failed to convict George Zimmerman who had followed the teen, shot him during a struggle, then claimed it was self-defense. Instead of being forthright about their countless mistakes and substandard performance during the trial, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey and her team, Bernie de la Rionda, John Guy and Richard Mantei, continue to deny responsibility for blowing the chance to hold the neighborhood volunteer watchman accountable. And now, at last, "A Million Prosecutor Mistakes: How They Lost the Trial of Trayvon Martin's Confessed Killer", exposes the truth to set the record straight in plain non-lawyer language the specific details that prove the prosecutors dropped the ball --far too manytimes for them to not know they were messing up. After she had filed charges against the volunteer neighborhood watchman for second degree murder, Corey met with Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the victim's parents, and promised to do all in her power to get justice for them. Unfortunately, she failed to deliver on that promise and her team, despite having 95 years of criminal trial experience among them, owe Trayvon's parents an apology and an overdue explanation for their half-hearted effort to convict their unarmed son's killer. At times, it was baffling to watch the prosecutors behave like an episode of The Three Stooges, bungling evidence and tripping over each other. From the opening statement from hell where Guy cursed at the jury to De la Rionda's lame closing arguments, the prosecutors showed that they didn't know what they were doing. Their lack of knowledge of hearsay, other rules of evidence and criminal procedure were shocking. Perhaps, they just didn't care whether Zimmerman went free or not. And now, 7 years later, Corey's team still refuse to accept full responsibility. But it's time for them to be honest with Trayvon's parents because they owe them the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
