SANFORD -- George Zimmerman apologized for shooting Trayvon Martin during a bond hearing Friday.
Now, as he's waiting to get out of jail, hes getting some new support.
In a message of support, they stood in front of the Seminole County courthouse with homemade signs to let Zimmerman know he has people in his corner.
The signs read, Innocent Until.. and Justice for Zimmerman.
It was a small group but their intentions were big -- to let George Zimmerman know that they believe he hasn't been treated fairly by the media or the court of public opinion.
Wesley Howell said he thinks it's only going to get worse and that's not right.
I wanted to come out because I could tell from what was going on in the news media, it looks like Zimmerman is getting, about to get railroaded into prison without even a fair trial and I think that's wrong, said Altamonte Springs resident Wesley Howell.
Another supporter, Anna Johnson, said she believes the parents of Trayvon Martin are good Christians and didn't really want all of this attention and that they should be left alone to mourn the loss of their child.
We were told Zimmerman was aware of the support and that he didn't want the demonstration because the community needed time to heal.
I can see IT and Skillets from my house!
were they selling hoodies?
“He did NOT apologize.
He said I am sorry for your loss.
Not the same thing. An apology would imply he did something wrong, which is why the media is running hard with the spin that Zimmerman apologized to the parents instead of merely making an expression of sorrow and empathy.”
Hat tip to Meet the New Boss
The UnAmerican, anti constitutional, so called president of the UNited States of Zimbabwe interferred with the due process rights of Zimmerman.He did this by commenting and opining on the case and its disposition, and inflaming the racial haridans of the Obama regimes cadre of political activists, such as the NAACP, and the New Black Panthers..
The COurt should entertain a motion from Defence council to dismiss the indictment as a fraudulently achieved document, resulting from a breech of the defendents rights of due process, and is tantamount to a bill of attainder, banned by the Constitution.
No political show trial like this one should be allowed to proceed in any court of law of a free people.
Send all your Trayvons out to burgle neighborhoods, and watch them all get shot with impunity by a free people.There is no right inherent in any person to be able to loot, and burgle.Certainly not in Trayvon, the hoodied back street thug, self motivated looter of gated communities, who already had a burglery tool in his possession back home.
Finally, believers in self-defense fighting for the truth instead of cowering before leftist media.
You are correct - that wasn’t an apology - once again it is the media dolts that are characterizing Zimmerman’s words.
Well said - much better than my response.
I think he’s very naive.
Didn’t you know that if he was getting his head pounded into the concrete the blood would be smeared? That’s according to Screamin’ Jeanine Pirro.
feel like I have to put this: sarc
Beating down people because you think you have been dissed now comes with big risks in many states.
Wait, what? Someone thinks Trayvon’s parents should be “left alone?” The parents that trademarked “trayvon” sayings? The ones that go on every news show they can?
The blood doesn’t appear to be smeared at all. Jeanine Pirro has turned out to be a dolt.
She said IF his head had been pounded against the concrete it WOULD be smeared. She said “I’m not buying this picture.” I can’t stand this loud mouth.
