Judge grants bail for George Zimmerman
CBS News ^ | April 20, 2012 | CBS News

Posted on 04/20/2012 8:23:12 AM PDT by Beaten Valve

(CBS/AP) SANFORD, Fla. - A judge has granted bail for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said he would grant the motion to release Zimmerman, but would not allow his release today, given further discussions needed about the terms, including whether he would be allowed out of state.

He also said that Zimmerman would not be able to have any contact with the victim's family, could not possess firearms; and order no consumption of alcohol or controlled substances.

I assume the Black Panthers with the assistance of Spike Lee will be able to obtain this poor man's location to serve their death warrant on him.

One of the conditions of bail: Zimmerman would not be allowed... to possess firearms

Hope he carries an armed friend around with him.

I guess it's time for Eric Holder to step up and arrest Zimmerman for violating Martin's civil rights.

I’m sure Angela Corey wouldn’t stand for that should self defense be necessary.

Zimmerman="Dead Man Walkin'"

I suspect the White Hut, through its surrogate, the New Black Panthers, has told them that he's un-armed, and it's open season.

There's NO WHERE to hide him.....he should have told the court "I respectfully want to stay in jail, because there's a bounty on me from the New Black Panthers, and NO LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY will do anything about that. Also, Black 'LEADERS' have incited black people to attack me, and already have lied about the facts, and the stokng of blacks' rage is on all the NEWS NETWORKS, ALL THE TIME"

If he stays in Vermont or New Hampshire, I think any NBP assassins will probably be pretty easy to identify, and 100 miles before they get to him.

The prosecution kept tellign george- “during the act of committing htis crime’

‘Crime’? What Crim e? First of all NONE of what george zimmerman did during the whoel incident constituted second degree murder- NONE of whsat he did shows that he was depraved of mind or that he hsowed callous indifference to human life- Hell- none of what he did even goes to hsiow manslaghter- secondly, the prosecutiion should not be allowed to say ‘the crime’ as he has NOT proven a crime was committed- He should be required to state’ it is alledged that a crime has been committed’

Thjis case shoudl hjave been thrown out today-

>> There’s NO WHERE to hide him...

He could come to my place in the country. Barbed wire, locked gate, friendly conservative neighbors who watch out for each other, plenty of firepower. A carload of NBPP thugs would not go unnoticed in the area, either.

And there are many, many other places just like mine.

I’ll bet there are some in Florida, even.

Once again the LUNACY OF THE LEFT is on full display. NBC FRAUDULENTLY DOCTORED AUDIO TAPES to portray this shooting as a RACIST white person attacking a poor Innocent black person. COMPLETELY INGNORING a similar recent shooting in Florida where a black man shoot a white man who was attacking him, who now is using the STAND YOUR GROUND DEFENSE. Then you have the USEFUL IDIOTS Rosie, Lee, Jackson, Obama, Sharpton, Farakhan, Black Panthers, all throwing gasoline on the RACIST FIRE in hopes of gaining POLITICAL POINTS or a BIG FINANCIAL PAYDAY. This is not how it works in this country, but this is exactly how the LOSERS infested in the SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT PARTY operate. Come November, it ain't going to be pretty for these frauds

Geraldo this morning on "Fox & Friends" thought it was a Catch-22 for Zimmerman--he is indigent and qualifies for an attorney defending him pro bono, but if he can raise the money for the bond he won't qualify for the free attorney...but the cost of his defense could be as much as $500,000 so where will he get the money?

Condition of release. The judge doesn’t have to let him out at all, and AFAIK may place any restrictions on that release as seen fit. On any whim whatsoever the judge can call for his return to prison. He may be walking around, but he could just as easily be where he has absolutely no rights whatsoever; he still has no rights but those the judge deigns to allow, in this case free to move about but disarmed.

Surprised bail is so low.

Bond may be a refundable $150,000, but he can get that by handing over a non-refundable $15,000 to a bail bondsman. Fifteen grand isn’t anywhere close to what this trial will cost, warranting the pro bono treatment.

I expect very good lawyers will be fighting over who gets to represent him for free, so methinks the issue is moot.

Ran across a similar article on another site w/comments. Not bothering to post. Thought is the distraction has been ventured out to create tension nationwide. Summertime is coming and the natives are restless. Not good.

I did as you suggested, but I could not establish the correspondence you may have in mind between these two cases.

Could you give a short synopsis of the particulars (and a link, if you can find one)?

When he spoke, he was so calm...not a trace of a lie or dishonesty on his face or in his voice.

And here at FR, we are all “LIE EXPERTS” after listening to the master-the Great Liar Obama-for the past few years.

Soooo refreshing to hear a truthful person speak-on TV-AND it was covered!

May God look after George Zimmerman-HE is the only one that can protect him now I’m afraid...

He can have his pick of attorneys for free. I hope he’s getting some good advice. They’ll try to charge him a fee, but any of the bast@rds would give their firstborn child to get this case. The TV time alone will be bring in millions.

If they want him, do you think it's safe in jail?

Have either one of you ever spent any time in jail, I have, all you want is out.

Out side, your wife can be armed, inside, you are a sitting duck.
