Posted on 06/03/2012 12:13:43 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
George Zimmerman has returned to Central Florida, arriving late Saturday evening. On Friday, June 1, the court revoked Mr. Zimmerman's bond, ordering him to return to custody within 48 hours. The defense team has coordinated with the Sanford Police Department to ensure Mr. Zimmerman's security when he turns himself in before today's 2:30 PM deadline.
While out on bond, Mr. Zimmerman has been living in a secure, undisclosed location as there are significant threats against his life.
Mr. Zimmerman's lawyers will request a new bond hearing where they can address the court's concerns regarding the representation of funds available at the time of the original hearing on April 20. The defense team hopes that Mr. Zimmerman's voluntary surrender to Sanford police will help demonstrate to the court that he is not a flight risk. Furthermore, the vast majority of the funds in question are in an independently managed trust, and neither Mr. Zimmerman or his attorneys have direct access to the money.
On May 8, Mr. Zimmerman waived his right to a speedy trial to allow the defense team the time needed to prepare for trial. It is anticipated, though not certain, that the case will not be ready for trial until some time into 2013, and the next bond hearing will determine whether Mr. Zimmerman will wait those many months in jail or not.
When you have genuine proof that martin started the fight and acted thuggish (instead of running away - as zimmereman said) then post it.
Until then you too are just babbling.
His attorney has already taken responsibility for the passport mistake. He stated that GZ gave him his passports and that the attorney made the mistake. Seems like a foolish mistake for a professional attorney to make but either way it has nothing to do with GZ.
No, the phrase is "presumed innocent" until proven guilty.
Do you want to argue that OJ was innocent?
"What facts are known benefit Z and implicate T." -----
Which known facts, the ones where zimmerman (armed with a loaded sidearm) got out of his car to follow and martin (unarmed) ran away, are those the facts you mean?
I mean the rather large pile of facts, well & widely discussed on FR in great detail, which you obviously choose to ignore.
“Which known facts, the ones where zimmerman (armed with a loaded sidearm) got out of his car to follow and martin (unarmed) ran away, are those the facts you mean?”
I have seen no evidence to support your theory. Like I said in my above post I will wait to see what evidence is presented at trial before making my decision.
Make that my final decision.
Thanks for enlightening me. The part about O’mara having the other passport didn’t make the initial press articles. Surprise.
So then you’re saying that you think that 5-7 Zimmerman would be stupid enough to throw the first punch against a 6-3 hoodie in the dark? He wouldn’t have stood a chance and he knew it and the facts of the encounter bear it out.
Judge Bemjamin Lerner, in Philadelphia, sentenced a retired disabled Marine to 25 years for using a small knife to kill one of several attacking Holder’s People.
Said disabled Marine had suffered two strokes, two heart attacks and had a pacemaker implanted. The Urban Ferals attacked him with a steel tube, knocked him to the ground, and were busy being “Urban Black Ferals” when the victim used a knife to defend himself against disproportionate force.
The Judge jailed him anyway, despite the fact that Penn. Legislature passed a “Stand Your Ground” Law!
Judge is a Democrap, of course.
One more die hard supporter of Holder’s People sending a message to anyone who would dare to defend themselves from attack by any member of the ‘protected class’ of Black Urban Ferals.
However, the marine is alive and appealing the marsupial Magistrate’s decision.
Better alive and litigating than slaughtered by a Black Urban/Hispanic Urban Feral.
Zimmerman's 5'7" now? I thought it was established he is 5'9", but I could be wrong.
The autopsy report stated that Martin was 71" (5'11"), but maybe the M.E. was wrong.
O'Mara received the replacement passport (obtained in 2004) -and- a check for the full amount of funds available/raised by the website. Both of these were sent to him by Zimmerman on April 25, and received by O'Mara on April 26, a day before the hearing on press motions for publication of court filings.
I'm waiting to hear Shelly Zimmerman's explanation for not apprising the court, on April 20, of the funds associated with the legal defense website. O'Mara argued that Zimmerman had no intention to use those funds frivolously or to flee; see Zimmerman's actions.
Shelly and George Zimmerman will have their day in court, on another motion for bond.
Sorry but you have your facts wrong. Getting out of your car and following another person is not a crime especially when you are with Neighborhood Watch and supposed to be on the look out for suspicious persons. Rather than doing something wrong, he was doing his duty.
But slugging a person with your fists as Trayvon did is a crime. It is called assault. Fists can be deadly weapons and Trayvon was using his as deadly weapons that night. The deadly Trayvon fist barrage came first. The gunshot followed.
The guy shouldn’t have lied to the court. I say we are all safer with him in jail.
You underestimate the man's stupidity. First he calls the cops, before engaging in his hunt for prey. Then, after catching the kid and shoving him around, Zimmerman, while temporarily at a physical disadvantage, called for help , but only if you believe the eyewitness. Sybrina Fuller says that Martin was calling for help, ostensibly while Zimmerman held him at gunpoint. Anyway, Zimmerman is so stupid, that after shooting Martin, he stayed on the scene, and cooperated with police over the course of the next two or three days, giving them statements and answering their questions.
If that doesn't scream out "GUILT!", I don't know what does.
If Zim don't talk, lower the hot lights until he's burning, and beat him with rubber hoses. If he still don't talk, threaten to put him in with the senseless murdering gang inmates...Keep spreading the rumor he's a snitch and hates blacks.
If the prosecutors are lucky, there will never be trial.
Wow. That would make a good web site - KangarooCourts.com, where cases like this would be publicized along with the Judge’s office particulars, who appointed him, etc.
“Until then you too are just babbling.”
Why allow your Big Sh*tty personality to show? A slight bit of fact checking would have allowed you to learn that even if Zimmerman called Martin what the law considers “fighting Words”, that when Martin began attempting to kill Zimmerman, Zimmerman still had the right to defend his own life. When Martin jumped onto a prone Zimmerman and began banging Zimmerman’s head into the concrete, Martin removed any possible retreat.
By commencing a potentially lethal attack while simultaneously removing any possible retreat, Martin signed his own death warrant.
Facts are your friend, my FRiend.
As proof of my “Facts are your friend, my FRiend”, examine your “When you have genuine proof that martin started the fight and acted thuggish (instead of running away - as zimmereman said) then post it.”
Note that had Martin not returned, Martin could be enjoying the cough syrup recreational drug he emailed about instead of pushing up daisies.
I lived in the Big Sh*tty, and know the New York State mindset, both urban and rural, having been graduated from Kingston High - I was not commenting from ignorance. Assertiveness and aggressive confidence is no substitute for checking ones facts. NY State has been a place with issues regarding the individual and the Constitution ever since the Revolutionary War, when many did not support the Revolutionary War.
To this day, the state has a disproportionate number of the collectivism prone. As proof, look at who they imported as a Sinator. Yes, the mis-spelling is deliberate.
I raised this point because your home community is steeped in anti-2nd Amendment belief, and the Zimmerman case is the lead case in the Democrapic/commie crowd attempt to intimidate citizens from exercising their Natural Law Right to self defense. May I suggest reading the Heller case and Kopel’s article on it.
When the “most influential court in the world” defines self defense to be a Natural Law Right, perhaps your fellow Big Sh*tty chappies should consider revising both your premises and the NY gun laws. Just a suggestion, because doing it yourself is ever so much less embarrassing than having said revisions forced upon you.
