ORLANDO, Fla. The former neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin told his wife to buy bulletproof vests for them and for his attorney, according to jailhouse calls released Monday.
"As uncomfortable as it is, I want you wearing one," George Zimmerman told his wife. Zimmerman was wearing a bulletproof vest when he left jail after posting bond. His attorney, Mark O'Mara, has reported receiving threats.
The calls, released by prosecutors, also detail how Zimmerman instructed his wife to transfer money from bank accounts and could play a crucial role in his second bond hearing next week.

They ain’t got spit so they’re gonna jail his wife and oh yeah, him, for perjury.
unbelievable the way this is being handled. what a mockery.
This poor guy has got the tar and rail waiting for him.
Wonder who profited from his recordings.
Oh wait! THE SHERIFF AND THE PRESS!
He don’t stand a chance.
Zimmerman is done , next step is meeting the hand picked guy with the shiv to finish it
The paypal account is a defense fund, $$ for living expense and payment of lawyers. It is not a bail fund.
This is all a bunch of crap.
Can anyone remember when a defense fund was scarfed up by the prosecution and used to increase the bail amount...thus destroying the ability of citizens to contribute to someones defense in any meaningful way?
Maybe a little more common sense on the judge's part...the Zimmermans have been threatened royally. Damn right they should be thinking of all the routes. They may have been "forced" to flee.
LThe judge is a rotten BAS**** and it's none of his business how much money they have. They're ordinary folks.
This is a shameful display of political trial. Zimmermann was exhonerated by municiple police , of having acted in self defence. Yet the so called presidents comment , about Trayvon could have been his son, sparked racial hatred, the appointment of a special prosecutor, the circumvention of the usual grand jury process for indictment, and now Zimmermann and his family have to live not only with a destruction of their due process rights, and the right to a fair trial,BUT they also have to cope with liberal fascism
of the Obama administratiuon and the insidious way of influence peddling they execute on the people of the supposedly free state of Florida, now trembling at the prospect of “convict Zimmerman or else” race riots will follow?
Eff them one and all. Zimmerman should not even be charged with an offence. This is a political show trial designed to
end “racism” when in fact it should represent the legitimate defence of ones own life.Its just like the political show trials in history of other totalitarian states designed for the specific purpose to shape and manipulate the public.
All this the Zimmermans suffer alone while a horrified nation watches as justice goes down the tubes, chased away by the burgeoning political correctness which now rules our nation, instead of the rule of law.
This is such a Kangaroo court that the whole town of Sanford is bouncing up and down.
Nifong was an amateur compared to the witch boiling her brew in Sanford.
What did the Judge ever do about the public bounty on GZ?
I'm not exactly up on all the criminal lifestyle stuff, and even I know the jailhouse phones are recorded.
If someone voluntarily says something incriminating on these phones, it ain't a 5th amendment issue.
Yes it’s very sad. Bail should only have to do with the seriousness of the crime and weather the defendent is a flight risk.
It is increasingly obvious that the prosecution intends to nail Zimmerman with a secondary offense so that when he gets aquitted of murder/manslaughter the jag-offs like the ‘Reverend’ Al can continue to run around saying that Zimmerman is ‘guilty’.
I would consider bullet proof vests for the spouse and lawyer a valid expense for a legal defense fund.
But making him post bail and then putting him back in and then charging his wife - it’s like they are going to do anything to get him life, regardless of the law.
Nothing said was incriminating. They talked about which bills to pay.
Maybe this is one of O’Mara’s early strategies to keep them from vigilantes and bounty hunters.
With bounty hunters looking for me, I'd be a big-time flight risk.
The Black Klan put a murder bounty on his head and there were retaliatory beatings on white people in several cities.
The authorities are going to work to keep him in jail for his own good and so cities don’t burn by the hands of black supremacist thugs led by the New Black Panther Party, President Obama, and Al “Jew them down” Sharpton.
In Texas, one part or the other in a phone call must know the call is being recorded. In some states, that still is not enough, both parties "must" know (recall the Lewinsky tapes).
Thats a senseless post. Leftists will riot and loot if an athletic team wins, or if it loses.
If they think they need new big screen TVs they will riot whether the white/black/south american native insurance guy is in jail or free.
It matters not, and never has.
