Florida officials were preparing for a possible backlash today if fatal shooter George Zimmerman walks free from a bond hearing.
Barricades were placed outside Seminole County Courthouse in Sanford ahead of today's hearing. An Emergency Operations Center was on standby and a SWAT team will be placed on alert.
"We are prepared for all the contingencies," Sanford city manager Norton Bonaparte told myFOXorlando.com.
Zimmerman's attorney took extra steps to keep the shooter's relatives safe. Mark O'Mara asked a judge Thursday to keep phone numbers of family members private. They planned to testify by telephone to support Zimmerman.
O'Mara added, "[There is] a lot of built-up emotion, there have been threats and concerns."
He said his client had a good chance of bonding out of jail, as long as it was a reasonable amount of money.
He said, "He's very worried about the process, but we have built a trust relationship which is great, and he's hopeful he'll be out on bond tomorrow [Friday]. He certainly wants to be back with his family and safe."
The family of Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot in Sanford in February, planned to testify at the hearing.

They are similar because both are made up of DemoKKKrats.
I don’t think young Zimmerman will be given bail. FL officials would be afraid to grant it. Many in FL would interpret bail as likely exoneration, and some would try to burn the place down in protest. There’s nothing like a FL liberal with his dander up. That being said, he certainly deserves bail, as he is no flight risk.
Zimmerman’s got a right to have bail set. He turned himself in, so he doesn’t seem like a threat to flee.
His right to bail stems from there being at least reasonable doubt he did what he is charged with.
enough of this lynching....Jorge shot in self defense....deal with it
Zimmerman can be safely released on bail in Suriname.
I just told my better half to make sure she keeps her .357 mag with her today. Just in case. I don’t expect anything to happen here (we live in a small southern town) but better safe than sorry.
I would hope that law enforcement officers and private citizens in the area are prepared to shoot rioters and looters in self-defense if required. One shot - at the start of any physical attack and before having their heads bashed against concrete by the thugs.
“And the leaders wet themselves.”
And THIS is MUCH more fundamentally the problem than the ongoing destructive behavior of uncivilized savages.
I doubt very seriously Zimmerman being released on bail. The "leaders" are shitting in their pants at the mere thought of it.
Zimmerman will be given a show trial before a kangeroo court and sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. The self hating Whites, both on and off this forum will cheer. Jesse and Al will be smiling as behind the scenes they exhotr their disciples to go get Whitey! If he/she resiste, we will sic the law on him/her. Rape the women, beat hell out of the men. Take their cars and jewelry.
If onlt the Founding Fathers could see how far down the Nation they founded through their blood and sacrifices have sunk. mercifully, they cannot.
I guess you think Trayvon was just a perfect little angel.
deserve bail? lol he should never even have been arrested!
the FIRST thing they should have done was the hearing on whether Zimmerman qualifies for Stand Your Ground Defense protections!
“When the prople elect moral cowards to lead them. When they elect individuals with no principles or scupples to political office. When the people put in political office those who will steal the property of those who have earned it and give it to them.....”
Well, he's right about that.
Live coverage of the bail hearing NOW:
The feral thugs are going to get an unpleasant surprise when they learn how many of us are willing and ready to defend ourselves with lethal force if necessary.
Zimmerman’s wife is testifying now (via phone) in the bond hearing...she comes across as very grounded and calm.
“...if he gives a reasonable bail, he is messaging more then he believes Martin is not a flight risk...”
I would have to agree with you. Being six feet underground and pushing up daisies pretty much means you aren’t going any where at all! LOL!
