Skip to comments.Zimmerman seeking release from jail on bond Friday [LIVE COVERAGE LINK]

Judge also completely dismissed GZ run in with undercover alcohal officer as common/standard and not indicative of violent tendencies (a HUGE premise for the State requesting very high bond). He also mentioned that FL is unique in its dealing with all kinds of shootings with a wide range of circumsyances. He just fired a warning shot to the State about their entire case - I hope they get the hint.
There is some discussion on this point...from what I gather he could have if he believed the state provided an improper complaint.
Media will go after the GPS monitor records. They’ll want them made public.
The first and the last two are boilerplate standard.
FOX coverage is whorish
Have the riots begun yet?
Definitely. The fox coverage is annoying. The state had to know what would happen here today. They will try to save as much face as possible.
They’re probably waiting until Trayvon’s parents have their post-hearing press conference. Then the riots will start up again.
As do I. Thank you!
Sent my lady to work with the o’l .357 mag just in case. Wait for it............wait for it....
Amen to that.
My guess is that the “elite” libs are now on to the phones telling their paid racial extortionist/terrorists to go find something else to do with their evil lives.
Anyone know where I can donate to the Zimmerman defense fund?
CNN has an analyst on saying how ill prepared the state prosecution was at this hearing. Their lead investigator admitting in court they don’t know who started the fight and if Zimmerman was returning to the van.
no and me thinks the racists are gonna look ignorant durin thid trial
That had to be the Bail Hearing of the Century. I thought GZs lawyer did an outstanding job. The judge seemed very fair.
I was shocked and scared when GZ took the stand, but he held up amazingly well against the prosecutor’s attempts to get him to incriminate himself, admit to changing his story or get him to contradict his earlier statments.
I think GZ was a far more credible and effective witness than the state’s investigator with his 248 years of experience, or whatever it was.
Does anyone have a link for the entire hearing?
I missed it (meeting).
“The state had to know what would happen here today”
I was watching post hearings on CNN. They were tearing the prosecution for making “mistakes” on the stand that would diminish their case against GZ.
I just donated 25 bucks.. I feel like I’m helping in some way to Mr. Zimmerman. Feels good. Paypal is painless. If more would donate, we all could make a difference. Thanks for the donate link..
Thank you. Did it.
Which does not mean that he cannot hang out with heavily-armed friends.
[[yes, and they have nothing but assumptions]]
Blatantly false assumptions at that- let htis trialc be a wake up call to america- If a state thinsk that they can further their political positions- they can and apaprently do trumpt up false charges agaisnt a person- no longer sdo we have protection agaisnt false imprisonment evidently. IF true justice were to prevail- EVERYONE invovled in bringign htese false charges agaisnt zimmerman should be locked up and lose htei priviledges to practice law because htey have hsown they are NOT willing to uphold justice!
I think the guy on the stand just LIED big time by saying he had not heard that Trayvons father said that was NOT his sons voice.
you bet he just lied- their whole case can NOT stand unless they lie- the hwole case is a lie- the charges against george are a LIE- the claism by the left and the black comunity are LIES- t
There’s no pleasing some people.
They wanted an apology and they got a sincere one.
Now they say it was self-serving.
[[There was a statement made yesterdy by Crump something to the effect of it didnt matter if Trayvon attacked Zimmerman, Zimmerman had no right to shoot Trayvon.]]
Who isd crump? Anmd who the hell is he/she to tell people that they have no right to defend themselves agaisnt a freakin thug who is tryign ot murder them?
MSNBC was interviewing an attorney named Kendall Coffee after the Zimmerman bail hearing. Coffee at one time represented the Elian Gonzalez family. What he said was not reassuring to the MSNBC lynch mob.
Coffee was saying that the prosecution really hurt themselves at this bail bond hearing. The prosecution testified under oath that no determination can be made as to who delivered the first punch or attack. This is crucial.
It was also determined that the altercation and gunshot occurred in close proximity. It went well for Zimmerman today. And I finally got to see what a white Hispanic looks like.
What a MESS, eh? The state is Alice in Wonderland here. They start out with not enough evidence to arrest the guy- NOW they try to find enough evidence to convict him of 2nd degree murder. Pppffftttt...
Eactly- This si a clear cut case of prosecutorial misconduct, and by all riughts, it is the prosecutors who should be on trial for falsely arresting george zimmerman in the hopes that somethign later will stick- this is nothing but a stinkign fishing expedition- with hte state hoping that somethign will crop up later that will prove bad for george- apaprently now the state has the ‘right’ to simply bring false charges and falsely arrest whomeever they like? apparnetly civilians have no protection agaisnt false imprisonment
The issue is never the real issue. the real issue is always the Revolution. Or in this case, the big-money lawsuit the Martin family will likely file against everybody in sight if Zimmerman is found guilty.
They do not want to say anything that would compromise that lawsuit.
Uhhh, Paz is from from Spain.
Client wants to make a statement.]]
Exactly uh oh! The prosecution is goign to take htose statements and try to show george said them because he felt guilty about ‘murdering’ trayvon- they are goign to use his words as an ‘admission of guilt’ without actually admitting guilt- No wonder his original lawyers dropped him liek a hot potatoe- He isn’;t smart enough to listen to his lawyers and he mostl iekly will end up hirting his own case- but liek all arrogant folks, he feels he is ‘smarter than hte courts’ and will msotl ikely want ot take hte stand again- He apaprently htinks he can placate a woman who has LIED- who first came out and said she thought it was an accident, then turns aroudn LATER and said Nope- it was murder- This woman who also trademarke3d her son’s name to proffit off his name- George thinks he can placate her?v Then he’s dumber than I thoyught
Yes it is. Under FL's Stand Your Ground law, the defender may not be arrested or charged unless "there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful".
The prosecution has just admitted in court that they have no evidence that would indicate that Zimmerman was the aggressor. The prosecution's after-court staff meeting is not likely to be a happy one.
[[He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to Jehovah. Proverbs 17:15]]
Amen- hopefully the lawyers and prosecutors for the martins will have charges brought agaisnt htem when this is all over- however, in this current age, evil thrives while justice is derailed- We may have to wait until judgement day to see any real justice for zimmerman
stand your ground was supposed to prevent the obsessive prosecutor who abhored people engaging in self defense.
BTW prosecutors are allowed to carry the same way as any law enforcement. (also judges carry and can pass through metal detectores without issue)
I hope you don’t mind that I rather enjoyed your many typos, while still completely understanding and agreeing with your post. ;)
Zimmerman apology clip
Longer clip of Zimmerman Testimony
[[In his apology, George also stated he didnt know if Trayvon was armed or not & that he thought he was older, only little younger than him.
Any htoguhts? Yup- uit was a bad bad deal for george to get o nthe stand and say ANYTHING to the family- esp[ecially since hte family haqs pPROVEN that htey are NOT interested in hearing hte TRUTH- george apaprently wasn’t smart enough to figure otu that a woman who trademarks her dead son’s name, who LIES about the ebvidence, who LIES abotu what she first said would NEVER aqccept his apology aqnd woudl use that apology agaisnt him and use it to stir up more racvial hatred agaisnt him- just liek hte lawyers are doign right now- they are stirrign yup racial hatred by stating how furious the family is abotu the ‘Dis-ingenious’ apology (the lawyers word- I kid you not)
[[Attorney now attacking the second degree charge with the Judge. it is not a second degree murder charge just because the states attorney says it so.]]
IF that is truly the case then this should have been thrown out TODAY- His lawyer should be pushign for an emergency quick trial to determine IF the state even has the right ot charge george with somethign that he isn’t guilty of
[[How soon before the pack starts rioting??]]
As soon as the martin’s lawyers get doen raicebaiting the crowds and fanning the flames of racial hatred and tryign to get the case tried i nthe media- so in other words, any minute now
[[He just fired a warning shot to the State about their entire case - I hope they get the hint.]]
Don’t bet on it- martin’s lawyer after all called george’s apology ‘dis-ingenious’ (The word actually does a good job of describing the state’s intellect)
