SANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman is afraid of being killed while in jail facing charges of murdering Trayvon Martin, his lawyer said today.

“There has been an upwelling of hostility and animosity towards him that can find its way to you in many different ways,” Mark O’Mara said outside the courthouse in Sanford, Fla.

A *very* valid fear for sure.If it comes to pass many people,both in and *out* of government will have blood on their hands.

I must say I think that Governor Rick Scott (R) was a total jackass to get involved in this, by appointing a Republican special prosecutor who has now put Zimmerman in jail with a flawed affidavit. He should have stayed out of it. Now, if Zimmerman is killed in jail, the stupid Republicans will get the blame, instead of Obama, Holder, and their dirty racebaiters.

What the h*ll did they think they were doing, interfering like that?

Yup,you're right.Rush warned of a scorched earth campaign and we've already seen the first three acts...1)"Occupy"...2) "War On Women"...3) Martin.

I don’t understand why they are holding him. He’s not a threat to anyone else.

Political pressure.

Technically, since he turned himself in, he should claim and is entitled to the $1 million bounty placed on his head by the Black Panthers.

I have doubts he is going to be killed. At the PRESENT he is too valuable for political reasons. It is politically necessary that he be tried and convicted as close to October, November 2012 as possible. After conviction and the election he can die.

A Charge of Second Degree Murder will insure that Mr. Zimmerman will not be able to Post Bail. That was intentional IMHO.

Had he been charged with Involuntary Manslaughter, which in this case is even a stretch, his Bail would be set much lower so his Family and Friends would have a shot at getting him released.

As another FReeper posted, you don't have to be an Engineer to recognize a Railroad.

It's all meant to prevent Rodney King II.An "uncourageous" act for sure.However,you know as well as I do that if Florida hadn't charged him Attorney Corporal Holder would have...in a heartbeat.Zimmerman has a better chance with a state jury than a Federal one,IMO...a *much* better chance.This case will take a long time to resolve in FL and,if he's acquitted,the Attorney Corporal might not feel the need to indict (no political gain from doing so)...and might not even be *able* to,having been,by that time,reduced to the level of civilian ambulance chaser by the voters.

Zimmerman is innocent until proven guilty, no matter how much the national and Florida media screams the Sharpton chants.

Does he really believe that a fellow prisoner who was raised in a single-wide trailer would kill someone for the one million dollar black panther reward and world-wide acclaim?

I think there should be a different place to hold "the accused". They shouldn't be held with the convicts. I also don't understand why he is not allowed to watch television and is held pretty much in solitary. He is not guilty of a crime at this point, so he shouldn't be treated as such.

I hate to nitpick...but are you aware that there are SPACES after a comma, and after a period at the end of a sentence? This reads like one long sentence, with punctuation placed randomly. Hard to take your comments seriously when written this way.

I tend to think he is confined to solitary, for his own protection. That, however, would not stop inmates from rattling their cages and screaming insane things to intimidate him 24 hours a day.

On what charge? It's only if Zimmerman is convicted in FL that Federal hate crime laws come into play.

cicero called it right. This is cravenness and should be condemned as such.

” because they hope he will be murdered in jail so he won’t beat them in court...”

That is what I am thinking. He should be completely segregated . He has a bounty on him, thanks to Holder.

That wold presume you are dealing with reasonable people...and there aren’t too many of those in a prison.. He should be out on bail and in a protected location. Why no bail here????

Zimmerman can be charged with a Federal civil rights violation at any point, no state conviction required.

Capt Zimmerman, like police officers who end up in jail on trumped up charges, should be in protective custody or simply released on PR bond.

This fear isn’t unusual is it? Doesn’t pretty much anyone that goes to jail probably have some kind of enemy in there with them?

When this happens to someone we don’t like and believe is truly guilty, lots of people, including freepers, condone this action and say it’s justified.

I could very well be wrong, but to not protect him would leave them open to a multi-million dollar lawsuit, especially if he’s found innocent.

So I honestly can’t see them doing anything else. I’m not saying he’s comfortable and I’m not saying he has anything more than the most basic of amenities, but I think we would have heard about him being harmed by now, if he were in GP.
