Sanford Police Investigator Chris Serino in George Zimmerman Case said He was Pressured to File Charges in Shooting Death of Trayvon Martin

 

Things that make you go hmmm …

The lead Sanford Police investigator,Officer Chris Serino, says that he was pressured to file charges against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, even though he did not think there was enough evidence in the case. Documents released recently in the George Zimmerman investigation show that he is not a racist.

The lead Sanford Police investigator who sought manslaughter charges against George Zimmerman told the FBI that a sergeant and two other officers tried to pressure him into making an arrest in the controversial case — even though he didn’t think there was enough evidence.

Sanford Police Officer Chris Serino first made headlines when evidence released in the case showed he sought manslaughter charges against Zimmerman even while his chief publicly said there was no probable cause to arrest him. But a document released late Thursday casts doubt on Serino’s prior sworn affidavit seeking criminal charges, and raises questions about the credibility of the star law-enforcement witness in the murder case against Zimmerman for the shooting death of a black teenager, Miami Gardens high school junior Trayvon Martin..

Telling the FBI that he was concerned that people inside the police department were leaking information, Serino cited Sgt. Arthur Barnes, officers Rebecca Villalona and Trekelle Perkins “as all pressuring him to file charges against Zimmerman after the incident,” an FBI report said. “Serino did not believe he had enough evidence at the time to file charges.”

      The more we learn the more this case turns into a police department made up of racist blacks.

      At this point, it would seem that most of the documents have been made up to provide a means to get an indictment. This whole police department group that investigates crime needs to be investigated for misconduct.

      Ive felt for a long time there are more racists among the blacks than the whites. These people dont want pease and hamony among the races.

      Sorry, but that is a lie. Serino wanted to press charges against Zimmerman, but was denied by the Chief Lee and the DA. http://abcnews.go.com/US/jose-baez-represent-chris-serino-george-zimmerman-trial/story?id=17767789#.UMkyEo4Tuu4
      Nowhere else have I seen it described as “Serino was pressured into filing charges”. But what else should I expect from a blatantly biased conservative website? Wait until the trial, then tell me about how “blacks are more racist”.

      The below quote was from the Miami Herald, that bastion of conservatism. Before you shoot off your mouth, do everyone a favor and read.
