SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Just hours after George Zimmerman walked out of the Seminole County jail $150,000 bail, the court unsealed several documents. (see below for documents)

Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester issued an order to unseal several documents. According to one of the documents released Monday, Zimmerman's arraignment was pushed forward from May 29 to May 8.

Zimmerman's location is being kept a secret for his safety and could be outside the state of Florida.

Well, it looks like the State of Florida is going full-speed ahead with this trial.

So much for delaying it until after the November elections.

It’s all over Twitter.

I just saw this:

“Nice to see how our public schools have failed us. Evidence: George Zimmerman tweets. People are completely illiterate #zimmerman “

If you don’t want to make you blood boil, don’t read this one:

http://www.flcourts18.org/PDF/Press_Releases/state_response_to_def_m_appear_in_civ_clothing.pdf

It’s the state (i.e. Angela Corey) response to the simple request to appear in civilian clothes rather than prison garb.

Grrrrrrrr! What a PIG. (That’s not my first choice of epithets but I don’t want to get banned for life.)

There are a couple other outlets reporting it.

The big news is that O'Mara will have all the state's evidence by this Friday, April 27. From there he has the information he needs to compose a Motion for Immunity, and a Motion to dismiss because the allegations don't support the Murder charge.

I knew, a few days ago (Friday or Saturday) that arraignment had been rescheduled from May 29 to May 8. That was apparent from the Court docket. But Zimmerman has waived appearance at the arraignment, so no media circus there.

O'Mara really sandbagged the press. he told them that he wouldn't have the state's information until mid-June, etc. Hahahahahaha.

Based on what I’ve seen of the evidence in this case, there is no case. Maybe they want to get the not-guilty verdict and the riots out of the way well before November.

I don't think this release will harm Zimmerman's case. The past charges against him are very small potatoes. Or to go further with a food metaphor, nothingburgers.

If anything, this will help deflate the race-baiters' wild claims of Zimmerman's "violent" past. An open-handed smack on his girlfriends' mouth ... after she smacked his mouth? Yeah, that's real, OJ-style domestic violence. /s

Too late, I already read it. Get a load of this BS from the state!:

"Indeed, Defendant appears to be affirmatively courting a more positive "media image" via the instant Motion; certainly, the State hopes Defendant is not suggesting that he should be permitted to intentionally manipulate the perceptions of jurors who the law requires ignore any such perceptions."

Excuse me, Ms. Corey?! Just WhoTF has been trying manipulate the media all this time? certainly not Zimmerman you f'ing Hippo with lipstick

The Dems will certainly push to have this trial before the November elections. I think they view it as a WIN-WIN proposition. If Zimmerman is convicted their will be rejoicing by the liberals and some of that will turn into credits the Dems and Obama can cash in November.

If Zimmerman goes free the riots and the murders that follow (with full Obama support) will result in an even more energetic Dem turnout. Ditto if the case is thrown out by the judge.

I don't agree with this logic but I'm betting it is the Dem view.

She spoke to Florida and the nation like they were stupid 7 year old children, as she gave her sickening speech, as she smiled, winked and nodded at the audience of her government and the media friends.

It was one of the most disgusting news conference I've ever witnessed.

I saw that defendants are not supposed to be shackled too but Zimmerman sure is, surprised he isn't gagged.

My husband and I both heard in the early reports that the shots were fired by and the baby snatched by a skinny black woman with blond hair. We heard that several times but then they stopped. The woman they are holding sure isn't skinny.

“If Zimmerman goes free the riots and the murders that follow (with full Obama support) will result in an even more energetic Dem turnout.”

How could it cause a more energetic turnout for the treasoncrats?

I see the possible riots as the starting point of the second civil war IMO, to which the left and their entitlement class jackals will lose.

What if during the trial, Jesse, Al & Co. call for mass riots nationwide should there be an acquittal?

Wouldn't that be more in line with an Obama declaration of martial law? I mean rioting in just Florida wouldn't be enough reason, right?

I say this because it makes the most sense IF a suspesion/cancellation of elections is what Obama wants (and I think that's EXACTLY what he wants).

I’m pretty sure hussein needs to get the rioting started so he can declare martial law and “postpone” elections.

As I understand it, the basic demographic groups that gave Obama his greatest support in 2008 are operating at lower levels of enthusiasm than expected at this point in the 2012 election cycle. The blacks, the women and the young need (from a Dem viewpoint) a big kick in the you know what to re-energize them and get them out to vote in November. The Zimmerman case was "chosen" for that purpose.

It is LONG settled that the defendant has a right to appear in non-prison garb. Prosecutors hate that because it takes one of their mind game advantages away.

Perhaps we need a loser pays rule in criminal cases.

WAS.

Since the boat has more holes in it than the Titanic, it will be forgotten soon.

But that's OK.

Even though it is very rare, eventually a non-minority race member will kill a minority race member in self-defense and they can start over again.

Yes. At the link, scroll DOWN, and DOWN, and DOWN, and DOWN, and DOWN, and DOWN, and then, on the LEFT is a list of documents.

Even though the titles don't seem to relate to the Zimmerman case, that is because they are mostly legal mumbo jumbo.

Thanks.

Now let me get this straight...of all the stuff they could have released they chose Zimmerman’s 2005 arrest report and an injunction for protection his wife filed (but not the one he filed against her)?

I’ve seen a lot of crazy stuff in this case but I have never seen such a blatant attempt to discredit a defendant as this. Is it even legal to only release information which is prejudicial toward only one party in a case like this?

This is not going to go to trial period IMO, and I think the judge telegraphed that to the State during the bond hearing with his comment about the "prior arrest". He was essentially telling the State that he doesn't need them and the race pimping circus to interpret and twist facts for him in order for him to make a decision on those facts. That, and Zimmerman got the paltry bond requested (10% of $150K = $15K). Again, I think this judge will toss the case at the probable cause/SYG hearing. I hope Corey gets the full Nifong when all is said and done.

One thing I wonder about...did Sharpton/Jackson make the mother and father sign some sort of financial agreement prior to starting up race baiting? I hope O'Mara is on to that.

I think they are wrong. It's admissible hearsay. But, it's useless to the state because the credibility is bottom of the barrel.

There is also a question of timing of admissibility. More can come in at the immunity hearing, than at trial. The state will be allowed to present the affidavit as part of the immunity hearing, and the Judge may consider it. Same way the judge considers evidence that is ruled inadmissible to a jury.

Heh. Quarter of a banker's box. Maybe 10 witnesses, 20 max. Zimmerman's statements during interrogation. Formalities such as the transmission from SPD to state prosecutor ("the Serino affidavit"). Maybe 100, 150 photos. Report relating to the Kel-Tec. Coroner's report. That's it. That's all the state has, and most of it cuts in Zimmerman's favor!

I think a suspension or cancellation of the November elections due to mass riots is a bit of a stretch. Seems to me that this is more of a "get out the vote" effort that the Dems know would have some "acceptable" collateral damage (i.e. a few lives lost).

I think they’re only releasing documents that are pertinent to the proceedings that have actually occurred so far (i.e. the bond hearing). Not the documents and evidence that will be used in trial. The defense doesn’t even have all of that quite yet (such as there may be).

The documents you refer to were entered into the proceedings during the bond hearing because the prosecution tried to use Zimmerman’s prior scrapes with the law to argue that he was a danger to society and should therefore be denied bond.

Fortunately the judge was having none of that.

If riots and murder happen. . .this would be like the 1968 riots. . .with the people of America horrified and voting for republicans.

The “independents” of America would be stampeding to vote republican when they see the black mobs trying to impose their mob rule on this great nation.

There is no evidence of a crime or the DA would have arrested Zimmerman within a few days of the shooting. They had no case then and they have no case now. Under pressure they have overcharged Zimmerman knowing full well it will probably get kicked out at the pre trial hearing. Then they can say they tried and hopefully the Blacks won’t start doing the Watusi all over Sanford.
