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....

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said at a hearing Friday he cannot have any guns >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

With every black radical who totes a firearm out to kill him, why were his second amendment rights removed?

I hope he has a few people around him carrying heavy.

Come to think it, Zimmerman is a leftist radical magnet. Maybe they will stake him out like a sacrificial lamb and bait the ba$tards, and off the lot of them, doing the nation a great service.

Good luck Mr. Zimmerman, may you prevail in your trials unlawfully foisted upon you.This was caused by a president who commented on this criminal case, removing the full rights of due process from Zimmerman. This is horribly wrong in a free nation. to subject any citizen to a political show trial.

I am surprised that defence counsel is not moving on the constitutional issue of due process, requesting a gag order against POSOTUS, and moving the indictment be struck.

Hurray!

He should've been released several days ago.

George is an innocent man. The people who should be arrested are the Black Panthers.

Next to Sasha, is that an image of a skull on the window?

Her real given name is Natasha, which is Russian. To hide Barky's homage to communism the leftist media always refers to her as Sasha. Natasha spelled backwards is Ah, Satan! There is something seriously evil about Barky.

Considering the range at which Zimmerman used a gun when he did have it, a knife would have served his purpose.

I wouldn’t give a tinker’s damn if Martin was on the honor roll and was building airplanes so he could donate the proceeds to charity.

If, as Zimmerman claims, he decided to put an ass whuppin’ on the guy who dissed him by following him and asking an unreasonable question like “what are you doing here?” and continued to administer it by slamming his head in the sidewalk after he broke his nose, then he deserved to get shot.

If Zimmerman attacked Martin and Martin was merely getting the upper hand in the fight when Zimmerman decided to shoot, then he didn’t deserve it.

So far, the physical evidence points to the former, while the witness testimony is predictably split, but tends to favor Zimmerman.

Unless the prosecutor has something major up their sleeve, then it looks like Zimmerman had the book thrown at him for political reasons.

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

The jail government workers just care about billing the county for another full day while doing no actual work, hence releases always begin at 12:01 am, never before.

Getting out on bail is not supposed to be probation. I can see reasonable restrictions to insure the accused show up on their court date, but curfews and bans on alcohol and firearms are punishments that have nothing to do with that. How is that even constitutional?

Here is a real pic, much more recent and true to the nature of TM than the ones you posted:



Is whatever he was doing 2 years ago in an afterschool program more indicative of his attitude and state of mind than the fact that he was suspended from school three times this year: once for drugs, once for vandalism (also caught w/jewelry and thief tool), and for being in an "unauthorized area" of the school - don't think too hard about that one.

Did you read his tweets? How about the brag about slugging a bus driver and references to gunplay? How about the vids of TM refereeing fights at achool? Here's another more recent pic for you:

@anglian: Your first photo has a date of 8/11/09. That was after his freshman 2008-09 year. This having been his 2011-12 senior year, why do you post such an outdated photo? Teenagers change dramatically over the course of three years in high school - especially in urban crime ridden public high schools like those in Miami.

It was the propaganda war of those who tried to demonize Zimmerman and beatify Martin that provoked and justified the response you condemn. It began with the juxtaposition of old angelic photos of Martin against old & doctored demonic photos of Zimmerman, and continued with a media doctored 911 audio to make Zimmerman sound like he told the police that Martin's race was why he was calling 911 and then a police lockup video in which the media deliberately obscured obvious marks on Zimmerman's skull so hey could claim "no sign of injury."

If you want to retain any appearance of honesty, stick to the recent photos and activities of both, and save your propaganda for liberal blog sites and associates.

Does the real Trayvon have a facial scar or not? I see one in the photo cynwoody posted but not in the one anglian posted. Here's another one with no scar and longer ears.

Are there any photos of the gold-toothed Trayvon that show his hairline?

AFAIK, it’s Constitutional because he’s released on the whim of the court, and thus subject to re-incarceration on the whim of the court - and the court is just specifying what whims those may entail. When incarcerated, the suspect has no rights of possession or movement; bail may eliminate the walls but limits on possession or movement continue at the court’s discretion. Put another way: if he doesn’t like it, he can return to jail on his own.

It is very possible lil Tray was almost certainly in the dope game. Here’s a photobucket link:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v606/rubycalaber/In%20use/trayvondrugdealing.png

where he and a compatriot are talking about “lean”, another drug slang name for this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_drank

We already know about someone asking him about “plants” (MJ) and in one of those tweets another colleague mentions 14 stacks (14 thousand dollars). This is about the going price of a half kilo of coke.

HOLY PROPAGANDA by that poster!!!

Just like the scum in the MSM that dude posted pictures like Trayvon was a poor innocent angel.

Ohh, look Trayvon and an airplane, well the 9/11 hijackers went to flight training school in Florida and weren't they innocent angels? /sarc

Amazing that there are still so called FReepers defending these welfare leeches with gold teeth. Claiming he's a poo' boy wit skittles!!!

I won't respond to that anglian poster because chances are he is a sleeper FReeper as we've been zotting quite a few lately.

Yesterday, some nut job who had signed up in 2005 went on a tirade about how the right wing were behind 9/11....

So no I'm not paranoid, ask theoldlady (our Zot pinger) and the Mods about the sleepers here who pop up every election cycle trying to make this website look bad.

Anytime someone posts a picture making that thug future killer look like a poo' innocent boy. Post pictures of Zimmerman's head gushing blood like he had been hacked with a hatchet!!!

Thanks for that link, I had not seen several of those exchanges before. The real TM is out there for those with any interest in finding him, meanwhile the media-created version of TM (and GZ) persists unchecked for the most part and has become the "reality" for 90%. Compare the TM on your link to this "painting" which I fully expect to see on the cover of Newsweak shortly:


The artist, Michael D’Antuono calls this “A Tale Of Two Hoodies“, and claims: “this painting symbolizes the travesty of racially profiling innocent children and how present day prejudices affect policy“ /puke

If you looked hard enough, I’m sure you could find a neighbor or former neighbor of mine who’d describe me as a “fat Charles Manson” or “that guy who didn’t mow his lawn often enough” or some such. Most of Mr. Zimmerman’s neighbors and townsfolk who’ve talked to the press told of his campaign to seek justice for the black homeless man.

The Left's cries of "the travesty of racially profiling innocent children" and the propaganda images they have manufactured to "prove" their point, is no less than a war on reality.

First of all according the so called "girlfriend" of Trayvon, he did not have the hoodie on because it was raining or cold but because...

"He said this man was watching him, so he put his hoodie on." (LINK)
This is before Zimmmerman called 911 and reported a suspicious person with hoodie on. Putting a hoodie on to conceal identity is suspect in the world of the reality based. The evidence is found in a google ....
...search on "hoodie suspect" (results) returns 2.55 million finds.
Additionally, even thought the word "black" is often censored from media crime reports a google....
...search on "hoodie suspect black" (results) returns 1.83 million finds.
Which leads the reality based person to conclude - contrary to PC fantasies or even lies of the Left - that a black putting on a hoodie for no other apparent reason than to conceal identity is even more suspect.

We finally have FBI crime statistics combined with US Census race data (LINK post-45) that exposes another reality censored by the Left:

a given black is 45 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa.
Correct that and you're address so called "racial profiling." After all, self-preservation is a basic human instinct that will not be suppressed (in the rational reality based part of a population) by politically correct lies and censorship.

FOX (Phil Keating) just reporting a rally for GZ in Sanford next Sunday. Supporting Zimmerman and facets of 2nd Amendments.

Also showed supporting neighbor laying down and explaining the positions of TM and GZ.

Will probably show again today on another show.

Needs to be forwarded to the state AG office. IIRC there is contact information on Pam Bondi’s thread.

If it is a state issue now, will it be federal after voilence has crossed state boundaries? Could it be the reason GZ is staying out of state?

Anyone got contact information for Mark O’?....His office needs to know what’s going around if they don’t already.

Did y'all see the tweets made by the black butchers calling for the death of Zimmerman? (Drudge has a link)

One genius posted "Dat cracka is free cuz dey cant charge hiim 2x, we needs to kill dat cracka"

Posted how the wonderful example of Eric's Holder's "people" tweet such kind and civil tweets!

And apparently she didn't understand that getting out on bail doesn't mean you are found not guilty. You would think she has enough relatives or baby daddy's who's been out on bail.

Is whatever he was doing 2 years ago in an after school program (is) more indicative of his attitude and state of mind than the fact that he was suspended from school three times this year: - once for drugs, once for vandalism (also caught w/jewelry and thief tool), and for being in an "unauthorized area" of the school - don't think too hard about that one.

Check out # 51 , also recent photos at # 60 , together, imo, summarizes the whole situation.

Yeah, I am been asking Him to keep an eye on this and to deliver our country from evil.

I might not always understand what is the right thing in life, but I know He knows. I know Jesus’ justice does not involve the bloody and unjust cycles of tribal injustice. If what injustice your tribe did will be done back to you, you can count on what you did in revenge will come back to you again. The evil never stops.
