SANFORD, Fla. (AP) Judge revokes Zimmerman's bond in Trayvon Martin killing; gives him 72 hours to surrender.

Obama getting hit hard on the economy, his stupid Poland comment and other things....this will be a nice distraction for him. Watch his henchman Sharpton and Jackson get all up in this now...next week will be all Zimmerman 24/7.
Like Rush Limbaugh just said. “Now we know what social justice looks like.”
Apparently the judge is finding that Zimmerman didn’t disclose his financials up front.
And that he has a second passport.
Elsewhere I read today that Z’s attorney does not expect a trial til next year.
So. The racists are gloating over George spending the next 6-9 months behind bars.
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said Friday that George Zimmerman misled the court about how much money he had available when his bond was set for $150,000 in April. Prosecutors claim Zimmerman had $135,000 available that had been raised by a website he set up.
Prosecutors also say he failed to surrender a second passport.
Probably raise his bond based on the story. Just get the trial over so the riots can start. / sarc
Kangaroo Court and crooked judge.
Why would it be any of the prosecution’s or the judge’s concern if Zimmerman had a second passport or misunderestimated by a few dollars that amount of cash he had in his bank account?
Seems to me this is an outrage. Time for serious prayers for Mr. Zimmerman, as corruption reigns from the bench to the WH to the DOJ.
” Prosecutors also say he failed to surrender a second passport.”
If Zimm gets killed in prison, the prosecutors are off the hook.
Seriously? Because he is a greater flight risk with a second passport and a bunch of money in his bank account. This was pretty dumb. And now he's in jail.
Crump and the race baiters are behind this.
1. Because bond is frequently based on ability to pay. The more liquid assets you have available, the higher your bail or bond may be.
2. Because he surrendered his first passport to ensure he doesn't flee the country. Technically, by still having what I assume is a second valid passport, he can still get out of the USA.
Agreed. I still believe he acted in self-defense, but this certainly diminishes his credibility in the public eye (from which the eventual jury pool will be picked from).
Not to mention bond is set according to your ability to pay and the severity of the crime. It wasn't a few bucks difference, it was a few hundred thousand bucks.
If Zim goes to jail even one more day, politicians should pay. And I mean PAY. Y'all know what I mean.
You can't really be that stupid. 1, it's his business because it's ILLEGAL to have more than one passport. 2, Because as a condition of bail you must surrender your passport. Any attempt at circumventing that is not only contempt, but fraud, and most certainly demonstrates an intent to flee. I hope George liked jail, because he won't be getting out again pre-trial.
or misunderestimated by a few dollars that amount of cash he had in his bank account?
Yeah, why would we actually expect anyone who claims to be INDIGENT to actually be indigent. Again, fraud on Zimmerman's part. Luckily, all of these facts will be admissible at his trial. They speak volumes about his character.
Who knew? /s
The fact that he's being railroaded isn't Zimmerman's fault, but this bit of trouble is.
Dopey move, if true.
Dammit, I wish the guy would’ve fled to Brazil, where he could’ve given Obama and Holder the middle finger.
If he's lucky(?) there will be a Hispanic gang that may take him under their protection. I say (?) because protection is never free of strings.
Maybe Capt. Zimmerman forgot about the second passport or maybe even Holder. Jesse Jackson, Sharpton or someone like that applied for a second passport in Zimmerman’s name.
The judge didn’t buy the passport argument by the prosecutor, but he did the finances argument.
Wasn’t it practically common knowledge that Zimmerman had raised a lot of funds on line at the time of the arrainment?
I would think the relevant number would be the amount he had on hand the day before he gave the judge a number. If it went up significantly after that, it shouldn't be a problem.
Keeping him in jail is going to keep him in the news. I think, with a conviction looking unlikely, they will want to start walking away from this story. Don't look for him to spend too much time before new bail is posted.
Increase your meds, because you are genuinely and truly delusional.
Makes me want to vomit. Seriously...this guy is getting the SHAFT.
You're reaching in defending Cartman here.
He put in an application claiming the first "stolen or lost". Oh, Found it!
So how did the feds issue Zimmerman two passports? With all of the hullabalo over documents, I’m amazed the government screwed up that way.
There is no way to verify if someone lost a passport. Nor is there any communication between state courts and the fed in regards to passports and bail. Perhaps there should be.
He reported the first "lost, stolen, destroyed, or strayed", was issued a replacement.
Speculation: The court checked the expiry date of the passport they received (May 2012) with State dept records for the expiry date of the issued replacement (2014) and realized reports of the original's disappearance were much exxagerated
[[So. The racists are gloating over George spending the next 6-9 months behind bars.]]
Hoping I’m sure that someone will ‘get to him’ in prison and end his life- at which point they will all ‘wash their hands’ claiming they had nothign to do with his death and howe ‘unfortunate’ his ‘untimely’ death was-
What Florida needs is a judge with nuts the size of texas to go through the WHOLE corrupt law and judicial system diown htere and cleaqn house! This whole case stinks to high heaven, and the Judge4 should have more concerne4d abotu the prosecutor LYING to him and the press than he is abotu where george LEGALLY got money from
[[Prosecutors claim Zimmerman had $135,000 available that had been raised by a website he set up]]
Let them try to prove zimmerman KNEW abotu htis money at the time of bail- IF she can’t PROVE george knew abotu htem oney at hte time of bail, then by all rioghts zim should be IMMEDIATELY released on bail and should be informed that he has yet another case to bring against corey for FALSELY accusing him yet again- this woman IS slandering this man and she IS ruining his life forever bty her slanderous accusations-
Not necessarily a nefarious move. I once had to get a new driver's license and military ID because I lost my wallet. A couple of months later I found in in a pair of pants.
[[Again, fraud on Zimmerman’s part]]
That’s a pretty strong claim- have you any proof zim committed fraud? Or are you just assuming he knew what the totals of donations that were streaming in cosntantly were at the time of bail? If we’re goign to be in the assuming business, let’s then assume only several dollars had hit the actuasl account at the time of bail, or perhaps even only a few thousand, and that more was coming in during aND after the bail hearing-
Unless there’s actual proof zim KNEW the total amount, then accusing him of fraud is pretty opremature- and actually, if such an accusation should hurt him further, is almsot slanderous
But if you then "find" it and try to use it pass it off as a valid passport when it's not, that's a problem.
According to his attorney, Zimmerman has not been in control of this money. His lawyer has controlled it since he heard about it after the hearing. Crump and the prosecutors claim they want a fair trial, but they don’t want Zimmerman’s lawyer to have any money for depositions [the 50 that he has planned before the stand your ground hearing]. And the Treyvonistas want Zimmerman and his wife to starve to death in the meantime. They’re such wonderful religious people.
All of which was probably already technically spent at that point to pay the expenses of both George's and his father's family having to move from their homes give up their jobs and in hiring security. This media lynch circus and show trial are going to put them into some serious debt.
They want to lynch this man just to avoid rioting, IMO because they are afraid insurance payouts will implode the economy. Despicable!
Of course, all his actions so far show that he is not much of a flight risk. He cooperated with the investigation to start with. He turned himself in voluntarily as soon as he knew that he had to.
He has virtually no criminal history and has been a productive citizen.
This is all politically driven.
The only purpose of a bond is to insure that the person show up in court.
