The world's ugliest woman recently called Harvard Law School and threatened to sue said ivy covered institution because Alan Dershowitz criticized her criminal activity in the George Zimmerman case.
Strangely enough NRO had the link. I wonder if the pansy-in-charge there approved that link. I think the link is an advertisement from Newsmax, so perhaps Rich Lowry needed the money more than preserving his relationship with Al Sharpton.
Newsmax June 5, 2012 by Alan DershowitzAlan M. Dershowitz’s Perspective: State Attorney Angela Corey, the prosecutor in the George Zimmerman case, recently called the Dean of Harvard Law School to complain about my criticism of some of her actions.She was transferred to the Office of Communications and proceeded to engage in a 40-minute rant, during which she threatened to sue Harvard Law School, to try to get me disciplined by the Bar Association and to file charges against me for libel and slander.She said that because I work for Harvard and am identified as a professor she had the right to sue Harvard.When the communications official explained to her that I have a right to express my opinion as “a matter of academic freedom,” and that Harvard has no control over what I say, she did not seem to understand.She persisted in her nonstop whining, claiming that she is prohibited from responding to my attacks by the rules of professional responsibility — without mentioning that she has repeatedly held her own press conferences and made public statements throughout her career.Her beef was that I criticized her for filing a misleading affidavit that willfully omitted all information about the injuries Zimmerman had sustained during the “struggle” it described. She denied that she had any obligation to include in the affidavit truthful material that was favorable to the defense.She insisted that she is entitled to submit what, in effect, were half truths in an affidavit of probable cause, so long as she subsequently provides the defense with exculpatory evidence.She should go back to law school, where she will learn that it is never appropriate to submit an affidavit that contains a half truth, because a half truth is regarded by the law as a lie, and anyone who submits an affidavit swears to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.Before she submitted the probable cause affidavit, Corey was fully aware that Zimmerman had sustained serious injuries to the front and back of his head. The affidavit said that her investigators “reviewed” reports, statements and “photographs” that purportedly “detail[ed] the following.”It then went on to describe “the struggle,” but it deliberately omitted all references to Zimmerman’s injuries which were clearly visible in the photographs she and her investigators reviewed.
Omitting facts in a report or affidavit are in fact crimes. They are the same as making a false statement in the Federal system and are in this case punishable as violations of Title 18 United States Code Sections 1001 and 1519 Creation of a False Record, as well as civil rights violations, 18 USC 242, Violation of Rights Under Color of Law. Just look at this case from California, Charles Jackson, a Special Agent with the Federal Protective Service (FPS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, filed a false and misleading report concerning involvement of other FPS officer in a crime. He was prosecuted for writing a report that misled the United States Attorney's Office. It is time that Angela Corey and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents that prepared the false and misleading affidavit be criminally prosecuted.
