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.

Isn’t that the white supremacist who stalked and murdered that toddler?

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.

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

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.

That is exactly what Rush said this morning.

I'm sure the Reward is hidden inside a McDonalds somewhere.

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?
