Oh Hellz To The NO ! – Angela Corey Fires Ben Kruidbos ?

To quote a Miami-Dade LEO:

…. I don’t want to say much about that, except to say: you damned sure don’t want those CTH folks on your ass”…

Ben kribidbos

Well, if Corey wants to start tearing down or destroying people, just because she is corrupt and unlawful, she’s going to get a supernova of sunlight. And we’ll start with the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office. Ms. Cheryl Peek. The corrupt crony.

[...] The letter contended Kruibos did a poor job overseeing the information technology department, violated public records law for retaining documents, and noted he was questioned in March when the office was trying to determine who had leaked personnel information obtained through a computer breach.

In an interview Friday, Kruidbos denied the allegations in the letter, which was written by Cheryl Peek, the managing director of the State Attorney’s Office.

He said he had acted in good faith about “genuine concerns.” He said he had been proud to work at the State Attorney’s Office and feared the letter would cripple his chances at finding another job to support his family, including a 4-month-old son. (link)

Ms. Cheryl Peek was forced out of the State’s Attorneys office 20 years ago for her role in corruption tactics similar to what has been seen in the Zimmerman Trial.  In 1990 She engaged in “profiling”, illegal state manipulation, of a Grand Jury Pool:

Peeks 1

Peek 2

Here is the full case doc.  Which outlines the jury manipulation taken by Cheryl Peek that led to her removal from the State’s Attorney’s Office.   Obviously, “birds of a feather do flock together”, as Angela Corey puts Ms. Peek in a position to be Managing Director of her office.

Peek is like the ‘Pay for Manipulative testimony’ Medical Examiner from Jacksonville, Dr. Valerie Rao (aka Valorie Rao),  who is another Corey tool in the SAO.

And this is the discharge letter Ms. Peek sent to Mr. Kruidbos:

Here is why Ben is considered a risk to the State’s Attorney Office:

  1. We cannot let them get by with this. We can’t just walk away and let this happen to someone else, although I’m sure it happens many times a day, every day in that office.

  2. LetJusticePrevail" says:

    Beautiful work, uncovering this interesting information about Cheryl Peek. As the Zimmerman case winds down, I will have extra time on my hands. Maybe some of it should be spent uncovering MORE about Angela Corey, and the people who she chose to work in her office…

    • nivico says:



      ” “We don’t talk about him,” she said. “We are trying desperately to correct all the things he did wrong.” … She said those changes include … harsher prosecution of violent juveniles…”

      “In February, McCarthy circulated a memo stating Shorstein’s nationally recognized system for dealing with violent juvenile crime was dangerous and detrimental to the community. Veteran prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda echoed those sentiments in an interview last week, decrying the number of “graduates” from the prior administration’s juvenile program that return to the criminal justice system.”

    • nivico says:


      “She [Angela Corey] said those changes include not dropping as many cases, harsher prosecution of violent juveniles and structural changes to make the office operate more efficiently. Shorstein defended his record as state attorney but said Friday he didn’t want to be forced into a debate about specific programs.

      Interoffice criticism of Shorstein began immediately after Corey took office in January, four months after trouncing Shorstein’s former chief assistant in a nasty election. She fired several long-time office employees perceived as loyal to Shorstein or who supported her opponent, Jay Plotkin.

      In February, McCarthy circulated a memo stating Shorstein’s nationally recognized system for dealing with violent juvenile crime was dangerous and detrimental to the community. Veteran prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda echoed those sentiments in an interview last week, decrying the number of “graduates” from the prior administration’s juvenile program that return to the criminal justice system.”

      • LetJusticePrevail" says:

        AND, from the very last of that article:

        “AC was at courthouse yesterday trying murder case and HS was also roaming the halls,” McCarthy wrote, using initials. “I know it places all of you in a difficult spot when HS approaches you for a discussion, but place (sic) think about it from an appearance perspective. This is the guy that fired AC two years ago and then went on TV and said our leader was not fit to be the State Atty.”
        McCarthy went on to say he didn’t expect anyone to be discourteous but to “keep it short, be professional and then get on about your duties.”

        Sounds to me like 4th District employees were given “the message” to *keep their mouths shut* but to not be obvious when they do it. Yet more evidence of the repression under Angela Corey, even IF she didn’t personally pen that missive (e-mail) and disavows knowledge of it.

        AND, more to your point, it IS ironic that both Corey and BDLR criticize her predecessor for being lenient on juvenile offenders, when her role in the Zimmerman case has been one of repressing evidence of Trayvon Martin’s juvenile criminal offenses. Sure, he’s deceased and there is no need to prosecute him, but that (lack of need) does not preclude the appropriate release and recognition of his criminal propensities. She only does this to further her persecution of George Zimmerman, which (I perceive) is a repayment of a political debt to Pamela Bondi. What a corrupt group they are!

    • nivico says:

      Here’s an article from 2006 regarding Angela Corey being fired from the SA’s office.


    • nivico says:

      and here’s a video Shorstein made regarding his firing of AC


    • Katrina says:

      Agreed. A change.org petition to have her ass fired be good too. Liberals aren’t the only ones who can petition.

  3. sbguy says:

    These aren’t the actions of someone with the slightest concern about being held accountable.

  4. Partyzant says:

    She will be judged by the company she keeps. GZ technically is being judged by 6. AC & CP will be judged by ONE.

  5. myopiafree says:

    This, in my mind, if FAR WORSE that the bogus Probable-Cause charge she wrote against George Zimmerman. Angela Corey is totally out-of-control, and FAR WORSE that NiFong. This total arrogance. Incredible.

  6. Pitbull says:

    I am through commenting about ACTUALLY HAVING WRITTEN DOCUMENTS THAT ADMIT, THEN COMPLETELY DISMISS PROSECUTOR MISCONDUCT. ..ADMISSION BY THE FLORIDA BAR BOARD OF GOVERNORS ! I find this pathetic and humorous. Keep looking for the PRIZE. I possess the Prize — I may sell the papers on E Bay. Bye Bye

  7. It is absolutely disgusting just how far the corruption goes up this ladder and even more disgusting that nothing will be done about this.

  8. Chip Bennett says:

    Angela Corey truly does not fear being held responsible for her corruption, does she?

    • lovemygirl says:

      I believe they all think they are invincible, which will lead to their downfall. Like SD said, Amos is coming.

    • marie says:

      She needs to fear being put behind bars.

      Let the message go forth from henceforth: WE CTH FOLK gonna be on some very many asses from now until justice is done so just know you’re about to be mounted.

      • Sharon says:

        Just an FYI, marie. “CTH FOLK” do not use crude language to make a point. That is a fairly recent phenomena which began to put an unfamiliar stink in the air….it started with the arrival of the trial watchers.

        • Lulu says:

          Hear, hear, Sharon! We don’t need the crude languages and we don’t need the crude imagery. Your having to patrol these threads throughout the trial, you probably have far more than a headache. Not fair to you and those who try to keep order on the site. We’re supposed to be civil grownups.

          I like Lucianne’s saying: “It’s a salon, not a saloon”…

          • ytz4mee says:

            I like that. I’ll have to remember that …. before I begin PUI.

            • Lulu says:

              The only problem is that some don’t know that the salon is a meeting of intellectuals at the invitation of the host or hostess. Within their frame of reference it is just a hairdressing establishment.

        • ytz4mee says:

          Well, in the interests of full and honest disclosure, I’ve been known to be pushed to rhetoric that my Nana wouldn’t approve of …. but only after my limits on selfish and rude behavior has been breached. ;-)

          • Sharon says:

            Yes, you have, my friend. Yes. You have. ;) So that point is granted…but when you do it, it is not gratuitous, in the way that we have had to deal with over recent weeks. When you do it, it’s not “eager” as though an adolescent has found another opportunity to use a dirty word. When you do it, it’s the result of long experience, sweat and blood in the trenches, in the context of unspoken stories from both successful and failed ventures on invisible front lines of other battles….

            Your next comment fills in necessary perspective. Thank you .

      • ytz4mee says:

        What’s this “WE” business?
        I haven’t seen you contribute any research, any info or made any suggestions exactly how people should react to this egregious violation of decency.

        There are many long time Treepers here who are active contributors and courageous fighters on the front lines. In addition to commenting here, some also have their own blogs. Many, many are quietly gathering documented intel behind the scenes and work to collate that into a coherent piece.

        Given that I don’t really *know* who you are and as a result are completely unaware of exactly you’ve been contributing to the fireline, forgive me if I find the use of the Imperial “we” a little off-putting.

        • Lulu says:

          Soon the trial will end and it’s my guest the tourists will leave, taking their litter with them.

        • marie says:

          Been following the blog a great deal since seeing a link from Gucci Little Piggy who was linked from Steve Sailer. I have done my share of talking to people in my neighborhood and through emails to people I know. I believe I have sent a lot of traffic of intelligent, wanting-to -be-informed citizens to this blog.

          You seem a judgemental fellow, a bit full of yourself in that post, as if you don’t welcome newcomers who wish to follow the truth as their God-given right. Don’t start becoming one of the “others” whose hubris causes them to judge those of us who haven’t blogs of our own, who aren’t in the know of legal circles, and who, by your suggestion, just aren’t “courageous fighters on the front line.”

          Quite frankly, ytz4mee, I don’t know who you are, sir or madam. I’ll tell you this: If teaching in a public school for 34.5 years isn’t good enough to be considered a citizen on the “front lines” then I don’t know what is.

          I used “we.” I should face the lash, I guess. Get over yourself.

          • ytz4mee says:

            Ah, a teacher.
            That explains everything perfectly.
            And no – I won’t get “over myself” on my own blog.
            Thanks for playing. DLTDHYOTWO.

            Add: Thanks for confirming you’re a Zimbot and that’s how you found our little clearing in the woods. Let me be direct: We’re all over it here in the Admin shop. The CTH is not about George Zimmerman nor do we need to entertain the demands of his supporters.

        • Dead Dog Bounce says:

          The wisdom of crowds requires the whole crowd. Think about it. The time may come when we need her input.

          Likewise, the goal of this site is build a coalition in the real world. If the only thing readers here do is take the ideas and spread them elsewhere, they are a significant asset.

          Obviously, the bad language is undesirable, but it is not your job to monitor language. Sundance has moderators for this, and they do an excellent job with a lighter touch than you.

          • stella says:

            Apparently, you don’t understand that Ytz4me is an Admin here, as am I, and Sharon. Do you still want to fight with us? Just a question.

              • Sharon says:

                ….and yet we need to be instructed regarding the goals of the site…funny that.

                The fact is when we are going to address something head-on, we tend to do it under our full name/avatar, and choose not to conceal behind the admin title. And yet, again and again, those who haven’t been paying attention, have been here briefly, or live on the Zimmerman threads only and don’t even know we exist, often fall into instructing us.

                • Sharon, all I can say is that the people who do not know what the Treehouse stands for will never understand that this is the Treehouse’s living-room; that the admins have worked long and hard to make the Treehouse what it is and have full right to let anyone know when they are not acting within the established boundaries. Boundaries that have been well known for a very long time – and repeated many, many times. This is not a ‘free-for-all’. The Treehouse is filled with like-minded individuals who have climbed its branches to stand behind what is right – in so many arenas.

                  I’m grateful for all the hard work that has been and is being done here. If people only truly understood this is about more than GZ; it’s about America.

            • Dead Dog Bounce says:

              I don’t want a fight with anyone. If I desired a fight, trust me, my language would be less carefully chosen. I was aware that you and Sharon are admins but you are correct that I wasn’t aware that ytz4mee was an admin and felt he was piling on after the Sharon, first admin had dealt with the matter. I don’t see how I should have known that ytz was an admin – there is no visible indication apparent to me, and there is no apparent link on the front page.

              However, with the knowledge I have now, clearly my comment was inappropriate. The fact that my intentions were good is irrelevant. I apologise to Ytz4me for speaking out of place.

            • Judy says:

              Love your gentle sense of humor! :)

          • bullnuke says:

            For some reason, I get a kick out of watching the “trial watchers” learn the truth about who they are butting heads with. Kind of fun to watch. You admins are the gift that keeps on giving. Keep up the fabulous, and at times thankless, job you do here.

          • ytz4mee says:

            Hey Pal-
            Let me buy you a clue. I have never used a “lighter touch” and I’m not about to start now.
            If I get called to the front lines, it’s because we’re under heavy fire, and I’m not into fluffing your armchair cushions or making sure your peeled grapes are at exactly the right temperature you like.

            Since you seem to have issues with how we deal with difficult people, let me direct you to a corner of the blogger world where you will be in the company of others who feel exactly the same zeitgeist. It’s a big innertube world out there pal.



            • Dead Dog Bounce says:

              Am I to consider myself banned?

              • stella says:

                Not yet. Your comments (along with those of many others today) have been landing in the spam queue. We don’t know why.

              • stella says:

                I will give you a clue though. It’s hard to use a “light touch” when we are getting 100,000 page views a day, and I don’t know how many comments, many of them from strange people. We can’t keep track of everyone. Try to understand that we are all at the end of our ropes.

                • michellc says:

                  Once again I want to say all of you have my sympathy.

                  And although ya have it much worse than the rest of us. I still want to say I miss the cozy little tree with the ocassional disagreement that was forgotten by nightfall. I really miss the grown-up talks we could have over the campfire.

              • Menagerie says:

                Let me add another opinion, or viewpoint, if you will. I had a very different opinion about how to moderate a month ago. My patience has been abused, the post I wrote about site etiquette ignored, and people totally say whatever they want and get indignant when their comments are xxx’d out and then they are banned.

                A month ago I went out of my way to keep the lines open and give people chances, and in return, our regular Treepers have been over run by a horde of swine. Now I see my job as keeping the pigs out of the house.

  9. Sickof BIGbrother says:

    Just like the entire GZ trial, this is unbelievable. Clearly, Corey wouldn’t act in this way unless she knew the “higher ups” had her back. It seems like the only people with any authority anymore are people with unhonorable intentions. With the corruption in Florida and corruption in the white house, where will her accountability come from? She is audacity defined and understands how far she take take things. I doubt she loses a wink of sleep at night. I pray for GZ. The longer the jury deliberates, the more likely that he has some prison time coming from the “compromise verdict” the state planned all along. I honestly thought they would be back in court before close yesterday with a not guilty veridict. That asshole Guy got to them with his emotional child and “what if” bullcrap. I pray for Sundance as well because dealing with corruption of this level is dangerous. stay safe wolverine. Watch every step you take. We reside in a world where the good guys are the bad guys:(

  10. Wizzum says:

    To me it shows he has a high moral character, very desirable in an employee. From my POV, he came across very forthright and honest in his testimony. Head and shoulders above some others in the trial.

  11. Arkindole says:

    Recall that in May Kruidbos received a glowing performance evaluation.
    Remember, also, that we are dealing with the Mandarin Class who have a very very short memory.

  12. bullnuke says:

    State gets phone evidence in Jan. He starts asking questions in April. Gets a bonus in May for excellent work and fired in July. YeP! Misconduct by the prosecutors office. So many lawyers are going to need lawyers.

  13. John Galt says:

    So somebody in Corey’s office has prior experience with manipulation of a jury pool. How very interesting.

  14. flaladybug says:

    Can a State Attorney, such as Corey, be sued by George for Civil Rights Violations? I think even Derschowitz would want a piece of that!!

    • ytz4mee says:

      Nope. My HOR is Clay County, part of NifongCorey’s stomping grounds. I filed a complaint with AG Bondi, the FL State Bar, and my local state rep. All told me she’s “immune” and “doing the will of the people”. My local state rep told me what a wonderful person Angie is and how she’s a devout Christian who attends his church. That was heartwarming, let me assure you.

      I believe the tide may be turning WRT to FL State Bar, though. I believe she is still held to the same ethical standards (*snort*) of other attorneys called to the Bar. If enough people crowdswarm them demanding action, they will act.

      • BertDilbert says:

        “she’s a devout Christian who attends his church.”

        Personal exp, the bigger the cross one wears around their neck to display their faith the less likely they are to act christian when nobody is looking.

        • Sharon says:

          Whenever someone feels compelled to put adjectives in front of “Christian” my alarm bells go off. If someone actually is a Christian, there will be no need for adjectives of any kind. If they are not, all the adjectives in the world (which are inherently the opinions of the speaker being added to the word “Christian”) will make them something they are not. ppffffttttttt….

  15. Josh says:

    “Ms. Cheryl Peek was forced out of the State’s Attorneys office 20 years ago for her role in corruption tactics…” and yet … she remains on the taxpayer’s dime!

  16. Josh says:

    Government employees, at all levels, get away with so much and are not held accountable. Especially disturbing are those that are charged with protecting children. Many children are hurt, abused, or even killed directly, or indirectly, by those that are supposed to take care of or watch over them.
    Read the oh so sad story of Andrew James “A.J.” Schwarz
    No One Can Hurt Him Anymore” by Carol J.Rothgeb and Scott H. Cupp. Mr. Cupp
    “Barbara Black, a caseworker for the Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, is charged with extortion for allegedly vowing to take away Eileen Callahan’s children if Callahan continued calling HRS to say that a neighbor’s child was being abused. The child, Andrew “A.J.” Schwarz, was later found dead. His stepmother, Jessica Schwarz, has been charged with second-degree murder.” Jessica Schwarz was found guilty.

  17. marie says:

    I guess we’ve all said at one time or another, “I’m not a conspiracy theorist but….”. Well, I am not one nor have I ever been one, BUT…..now that my eyes have been opened to what happened with this case from the get-go, I am frightened that the people who orchestrated it would have no qualms about rigging a jury. There must be many ways to do so when you have the power of the federal executive office and the judiciary with a man at the helm of the nation and one at the helm of DOJ, both of whom would not let integrity get in their way of their benefactors. What proof is greater than Fast and Furious and Benghazi?

    One way would be to let the jury be chosen in the regular fashion, then use electronic bugging to hear the deliberations. If it looks as if the jury is about to render a verdict they don’t like, the judge who has been under orders from them all along, dismisses a juror and replaces her with another until they get what they want–a hung jury or guilty verdict, depending on what is acceptable to them as a victory.

    I wish these thoughts had never entered my head, but they are there, and I realize we have to be ready for anything because of what we’ve already seen been done.

  18. flawesttexas says:

    We in Florida do have a way to make those responsible suffer consequences

    We can vote out Corey’s biggest supporters….Gov Rick Scott and AG Pam Bondi. If they see that voters will toss them out because of the trial and Corey…they will move to save their rears

    Scott and Bondi should be held accountable for putting Corey in as prosecutor

  19. Sal says:

    The video reveals the absolute corruption of JN.

    Just as the witness reveals that that it was office policy NOT to reference case names or numbers in email, and how the witness was discouraged from putting any reference to a specific case in his emails, JN, without any prompting from the attorneys, calls a sidebar.

    MOM returns to the podium and begins an entirely new line of inquiry.

  21. Dead Dog Bounce says:

    Can we get a Breitbart or other new media reporter to ask Bondi/Corey about corrupt employees at Corey’s office. Make a link to Armstrong and Dr Ferrari (Lance’s doctor, with a previous conviction for doping when hired).

    Any way to say that Corey has a troubling habit of hiring people with shady ethical backgrounds. Make it an issue for Bondi as well, if possible.

  22. BF4 says:

    Not surprising that an attorney who lied to the court and whose conduct was deemed “reprehensible” and “outrageous” by the Court of Appeals, would be chosen to serve as the Managing Director of Angela Corey’s office.

    Even less surprising that she would terminate a man who told the truth.

  23. GZanon says:

    Yummy Sundance!!
    Trying to digest has taken over 3 hours so far.

  24. LetJusticePrevail" says:

    Interesting to note: A strong supporter of Angela Corey interviewed after AC’s firing by Shorstein:

    “Justice Coalition Executive Director Ann Dugger said she was shocked and disappointed to hear of Corey’s firing. The victims rights advocate said she’s worked with Corey for 11 years and called her one of Jacksonville’s best prosecutors and someone who stands up for victims.

    “I hope it’s not anything political,” she said of the firing.”

    Something to note about the “Justice Coalition” is that it’s a group that advocates for the rights of victims of violent crimes. Where was it’s support of George Zimmerman, after he was assaulted by Trayvon Martin?


  25. sue cheney says:

    This man is brave. His actions are the like of something missing in our society today. Mr. Kruidbos’s moral compass is intact and I pray that there are more people out there like him and will support him. He walks the walk and in our decaying society, I see a glimmer of hope. THANK YOU MR. K.
