George Zimmerman released from jail
WJXT-TV / The Associated Press ^ | April 23, 2012

Posted on 04/22/2012 9:36:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

SANFORD, Fla. - George Zimmerman was released around midnight Monday from a county jail on $150,000 bail as he awaits his second-degree murder trial for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin.

The neighborhood watch volunteer was wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans and carrying a paper bag. He met a man in a white vehicle and drove away. His ultimate destination is being kept secret for his safety and it could be outside Florida.

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said at a hearing Friday he cannot have any guns and must observe a 7 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew. Zimmerman also surrendered his passport....

How does a guy released at midnight keep a 7:00 PM to 6:00 AM curfew?

Great work, News4jax! Release a photo showing exactly what he is wearing and what his friend looks like.

Sure you don’t want to publish the license plate of the van too?

Yeah, maybe they could sell tickets too.

Seriously, the text would have been fine, though most papers (even online news) I know would have held off an hour before putting the story up and kept the time vague.

But a picture and a rapid release?

Well, if someone is charged with second degree murder (and yes, I know it is a BS charge) it would pretty much be a standard bail condition I should imagine.
Prevents the prosecution making a big deal of Zimmerman getting low bail in the first place.

Said before and I’ll keep saying it: This whole case is a tragedy for both sides, but GZ did right under the laws of the state, and has co-operated throughout, including staying in contact with LEO while he was hiding but uncharged. When he was charged, he came in under his own steam.
Those are not the actions of a man guilty of murder. Feeling guilty in his own mind, perhaps, hence his expression of sorrow to TM’s parents, but that is understandable.

Any bets on how long before the race & poverty hustlers start trying to get at the man with the lynch mob?

I read this, and I can’t stop remembering The Joker’s line in The Dark Knight:

“If Coleman Reese isn’t dead in sixty minutes then I blow up a hospital.”
I wonder if the NBPP said something like that about Zimmerman, anything would be done about it.

I heard that after seeing his pals’ race lies go up in smoke in the court room, Obama said, “If I had a son, he’d be riding in a white car and look just like George.” ;)

They can kill GZ cut draw and quarter him and Trayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyvooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnn's FAMILY meaning momma and baby daddy would fine something else to complain about.

I will keep quoting Booker T. Washington till it get's in everyone's heads there are a certain group of "colored folks" Booker T. Washington's words not mine, who will not be satisfied ever...

I would like to see Trayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyvoooooooooooooon's momma and baby daddy in jail for life, lawyer in jail for life along with all the gutter rats for inciting the call for killing Zimmerman. If Trayvvvvvvvvvvvonnnnnnns momma ain't in jail than the Emperor with no clothes will be elected due to the stupidity of the American people. She deserves the C word yep. The baby daddy belongs in Pelican's Bay. The lawyer should be shipped to Somalia, and the rest of the gutter rats belong in a Volcano.

Oh and for the guilty white lib prosecutors. Oh I would like them sent to a cannibal tribe in Africa so they can sing kumbaya and be multi-cultural before being roasted over a fire and eaten by spear chuckers living in a jungle.

But to abide by Big Brother I will make sure to wear a hoodie tomorrow in solidarity with a black gang banger gold teeth thug from hell who is sharing time with Hitler, Stalin, Napoleon, Vlad the Impaler, Jeffrey Dammer, Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, John Wayne Gacy and MALCOM X, Trayvon's hero! Yeah that's where "Saint" Trayvon is. Can't wait for his followers to join him.

I’d like to give his Dad and his stepmom/ step dad’s girlfriend (heck what would you call her anyway?) a bloody good punch or 10 myself as incredibly crappy parents.

Sure, a 17 year old is old enough to babysit while you get an evening out, but don’t you actually check their room when you get home, instead of assuming the 17 year old is in bed asleep? Seriously, you don’t spend 3 seconds to crack the door and see he is asleep?

That bit of info rankled me mightily. Parenting fail 101. Been looking hard and not found any reliable information as to when Trayvons father took off from him and his mother.

I’ll lay you a bet though - it was after the picture the MSM keeps jamming down our throats was taken.
That looks like a happy, secure kid.

I am trying to keep my mind open. Getting harder as more details come out, and, if TM did start the fight that lead to his death I am gonna put the blame exactly where it belongs. On his Mom and Dad.
Heck, we know he had a phone with him - someone starts following him why the heck didn’t TM call 911? You would. I would.
Because to his friends, cops are the enemy and his mother was just his mother. Not his father. You note that when he got suspended she sent him up to his dad?

black gang banger gold teeth thug from hell.

Just what kind of 'thug' would be spending his afterschool hours studying aircraft maintenance?

Trayvon Martin spent his freshman year and much of his sophomore year at Carol City High School. During this time he participated in the Discover Aviation afterschool program at George T.Baker Aviation.

No one should have to post Fake pictures when there are real ones.

w/apologies to Elton John, sung to the tune of ‘Levon’:

Trayvon groupies wear hoodies like a crown
You would think that thug was Jesus
Trayvon, oh they all now love that name,
Like Martin, Malcom, Jesse and Fat Al...

Trayvon, Trayvon’s Momma wants that money!
She’ll win a lot they say,
With lawyers, and race pimps by the bushel,
They’re countin’ that money every single day!

And Trayvon! He say “you gonna die now!”
As he reached for Zimmerman’s gun,
But Zimmerman, he was faster than Trayvon,
And pulled the trigger, and blew that thug away...

And they shall shout TRAYVON!
And they’ll say he was a good man!
And they shall shout TRAYVON!
And put a bounty out on Zimmerman!

They shall scream Traaaaayvonnnn!!!

The gold tooth thug photos look like a 14yr old and don't even look like him.

His Twitter avatar photo looks older than 14.

There's an old scar or something below his right eye, which is useful for sorting the fakes from the real.

His online presence is of somebody spoiling for a confrontation. His anger at being profiled by Zimmerman is fully justified. However, his assault on Zimmerman was a crime, and Zimmerman's response thereto was justifiable homicide. It's very unfortunate. If it hadn't happened, maybe he'd have become a great airplane mechanic. Or maybe not.

The opinion of the People of Florida does not matter and is worthy only of contempt. The white Corey is even uglier than the black one, BTW.

I don’t think the truth lies in demonizing Trayvon because he is like a lot of kids - good and bad.

However, I do think Trayvon might have been busting bad on “whitey’ Zimmerman because he was being watched (what you lookin’ at?) and I think he had been in trouble involving robbery and assault on a bus driver in the period leading to his death. Maybe he got into drugs and/or the wrong crowd. It’s very sad for his mom. I hope he was close to Jesus and is with God in heaven.

And Zimmerman did not deserve to be killed by an angry BIG young man if what Zimmerman says is true. He’s allowed to watch for criminals like everyone else. Terrible situation that would haunt anyone put into it.
