GEORGE ZIMMERMAN SITS IN COURT AWAITING JUDGES DECISION ON BAIL9 days ago Geroge Zimmerman was arrested for second degree murder for the shooting of Trayvon Martin February 26. It tok 45 days to get the arrest.
APRIL 11, 2012 ARREST HERE:
(CBS News) SANFORD, Fla. – George Zimmerman is set to come face to face with the parents of Trayvon Martin for the first time Friday at a court hearing that could result in his release on bond.
Zimmerman has been behind bars since his arrest nine days ago, charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of the unarmed 17-year-old. He has claimed self-defense in the deadly Feb. 26 encounter. Martin’s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, believe their son was murdered in cold blood.
On Friday, Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman’s attorney, will ask a Florida judge to free his client on bond pending the trial, though he has expressed concerns about Zimmerman’s safety.
“I don’t think he needs to or should stay in jail while this case is pending. I want him out and safe, and I’m not sure where safe is going to be yet.”

Rodney King criticizes ‘Stand Your Ground,’ recalls LA beating

Rodney King, whose beating by police in 1992 sparked the LA riots, criticized Friday the law at the heart of the contested Trayvon Martin shooting, as he recalled his own struggles.
Speaking a week ahead of the 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles race riots which left more than 50 people dead, King said he sympathized with Martin’s family but declined to speculate on the role of race in the case.
“I feel sorry for them, that was just a baby, it’s just a baby,” the African American told CNN, when asked about the Martin case, which has triggered protests and a national debate about racial profiling and the law.
Rodney King on Trayvon Marin shooting
That bond hearing was just weird. I am at a loss to describe what I feel
Look at the smirk on George Zimmerman’s face as he glances over at his attorney Mark O’mara.
Father God we thank you for yesterday because your word says thank you in all things,especially when we don’t understand. I will keep your word and lift up my prayer list everyday. As trayvone mother said he was chosen , Just like the ones before him. The world cannot under this,they think they are going to live forever. Your site is bringing me back to knees because I know where the answers are even when we can’t see. Trayvon soul will live forever he will go down into history as the young man who was killed while carrying an tea and a bag of skittles. I did not know that skittles were so popular,you will be surprised in a number of movies they are mentioned. Wouldn’t it be nice if the company decide to made a contribution to scholarship.
Hi dannie. Just more theatrics and shenanigans to protect Zimmerman, or is it ? Can’t wait for the trial, if in fact they let Zimmerman leave Florida for his safety… GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.
Um…Im in a panic cause it looks like Z is being set up to be let off. His attorney doesnt care Z perjured himself. The jury wont care. The attorney is playing up to who will be in the jury pool.
O’Mara def planned the GZ fake apology to Trayvon’s parents. And that invesitgator was a JOKE. Angela Corey better bring her game with this, or the negroes WILL NOT BE HAPPY.
imma hafta move to Greenland. the injustice in this country is too much. what does Z have on the Sanford PD that they are protecting this lowlife????
SEE! This is where I’m coming from, dannie. I’m betting they let him out on bail and well, ya know he takes his chances, if they can’t protect his murdering ass. But bank it, this MOFO Zimmerman, he knows all about the Sanford PD.
There’s alot of FILTHY SHENANIGANS & CORRUPTION in Sanford, FL. and GZ knows. Don’t be suprised if this wanker starts singing like a canary and exposes the dirt, that is unless he’s taken out beforehand.
how did they allow this bum to get so much power over them? his daddy aint that high up.
I <3 U, dannie. Let's get real here with the deal. LOL See this lil make-believe cop did their DIRTY work for them, only this time, they didn't bank on Trayvon's parents to STEP UP and DEMAND JUSTICE for the MURDER of their son.
These fuckers didn't think a black parent cared and loved Trayvon enough to take their asses to task for throwing their son in a morgue for 3 days when they could have contacted them using Trayvon's cell phone. How fucking stupid did they think Sybrina, Tracy, and the rest of us are?
cause white privilege says blacks dont love their kids. I hope the justice dept shuts sanford down!!
THANK YOU, Chaunceydevega!

George Zimmerman’s Non-Apology to Trayvon Martin’s Family: I am Sorry For Your Loss and That Your Son Ran Into a Bullet Which I Fired
ALL.OF.THIS.: “Zimmerman, 28, appeared in court in a dark suit and gray tie, and, in a surprising move, took the stand. There, in a voice verging on meek, he apologized to the family of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old he admits he shot—but only, he says, in self-defense.
“I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son,” he said to the parents, who attended the hearing in the central Florida city of Sanford, where the shooting took place. “I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am, and I did not know if he was armed or not.”
As a student of language and semiotics the latter part of Zimmerman’s statement is rich with meaning. Remember, context matters. Language constructs meaning through unstated assumptions shared by speaker and audience; oftentimes a speaker–here being Zimmerman–can run into a crisis of communication and meaning when the listener does not share his unstated priors. ”
READ THE REST HERE:
THE LIES CONTINUE..
It was a ploy plain and simple. He said on the 911 tapes that Trayvon was in his late teens. He knew Trayvon was not a little younger than him. Everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie.
Todsay’s bail granting was ANOTHER FAIL. I’m thinking a few folks in Sanford want this mofo out, praying a black man will kill him, so they can absolve their devious, inept, handling of the murder of Trayvon. Zimmerman knows too much about the Sanford Police Dept.

Zimmerman to Martin Parents: ‘I Am Sorry’
Accused shooter apologizes to Trayvon Martin’s parents at Florida bail hearing
Judge sets $150,000 bail for Zimmerman
A judge says George Zimmerman can be released on $150,000 bail as he awaits trial for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester set several conditions Friday for Mr. Zimmerman’s release. He cannot have any firearms, drink alcohol or use drugs and must observe a curfew. The judge says details need to be worked out between Mr. Zimmerman’s attorney and law enforcement, and that Mr. Zimmerman will not be released Friday.
The judge says there is a possibility Zimmerman will be allowed to go out of state because of worries about his safety, but details need to be worked out among the attorneys and law enforcement.
A Florida judge today set bond at $150,000 for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged in the shooting death of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder after the case sparked a heated, national debate over racial profiling and saw thousands of protesters demand Zimmerman’s arrest.
Martin’s family contends Zimmerman racially profiled their son, who was walking back from a convenience store in Sanford, Florida, when he was killed on February 26. Zimmerman was charged on April 11.
Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, maintains he acted in self-defense. His family says he did not profile Martin.
The case has also stirred debate over Floridas controversial Stand Your Ground law, which allows people to use deadly force when they feel a reasonable threat of death or serious injury.

Zimmerman is on the stand now apologizing to Sybrina and Tracy. Trayvon’s parents.
$150,000.00 bail CHEAP for the price of Trayvon’s murder, don’t you think?!!! What a bunch of bullshit!
When the judge fixed his mouth to say his past ‘skirmishes’ with the law weren’t much of a factor, I knew bond was going to be set.
Hi TheShyLurker. I’m feeling you. How about a dead teenager named Trayvon Martin. That’s a big FACTOR, don’tcha think?!!!
The hearing has been in progress for 30 minutes.= 9:25 a.m. CT
So O’Mara is questioning a Hispanic lady to attest to Zimmerman’s love for black boys whom he supposedly mentored.
ametia,i had to leave home to just get away asking God to help me understand. The judge didn’t think about the fine it was popped out of his mouth. This is the part my daughter where we have to love our enemies.and totally,totally trust God.! the judge zimmerman ,and all the other will be able to control their thoughts but!! they dam sure will not be able to control their dreams. They will hear over and over this child screaming somebody help me. His mother and father will be afraid of him after this is over. He was not remorse they think they have a victory.
Zimmerman & his attorney planned that apology to gain sympathy for him. This dude has NO remorse whatsover for killing Trayvon. Hell, he’s apologizing as if someone else pulled the trigger and murdered Trayvon, instead of him.
