Michael Dunn Prosecutor Talks to 'New Day'

In a 'New Day' exclusive, Angela Corey opened up on everything from Florida's Stand Your Ground law, to the people calling for her resignation. Here's what she had to say to Chris Cuomo:

Cuomo: People look at Zimmerman, they look at Dunn, the outcome in those 2 trials and they say young black men aren't being protected by the law. You disagree?

Corey: I completely disagree. The focus needs to be on all violence against all races, all ages, and it doesn't matter who's on either side of that gun, it's all a violation of Florida law if the facts are supported by what the law says is illegal.

Cuomo: The speculation is Trayvon Martin shoots George Zimmerman in the same situation, Jordan Davis shoots Michael Dunn in the same situation. They wind up getting thrown into jail, and the key is somewhere else, but when you flip the races the way people are now, people walk.

Corey: That's completely false, that's not what our cases show and until the media focuses on all cases or a sampling of all cases the public will never understand that that simply is not true. Trayvon Martin's death was a tragedy, Jordan Davis' death was a tragedy, all victims who die at the hand of illegal action are tragedies, and we need to put the focus on all of them, not just isolated cases.

    Sounds like AC is finally admitting Trayvon died “at the hand of illegal action”

    Trayvon Martin’s death was a tragedy, Jordan Davis’ death was a tragedy, all victims who die at the hand of illegal action are tragedies, and we need to put the focus on all of them, not just isolated cases.
