George Zimmerman to leave jail again as judge sets $1 million bond (+video)

The judge in the Trayvon Martin case set the new bond for George Zimmerman at $1 million. But Zimmerman needs to post only a percentage to be freed. His lawyer says he has the money.

A Florida judge ordered George Zimmerman released from jail for a second time if he can raise $100,000 to post bail under a $1 million bond.

Mr. Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, says “The Real George Zimmerman Defense Fund” – a cache of money donated by strangers that Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie, allegedly tried to hide from the court – has enough money to cover the bail. As a result, the alleged murderer of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin is expected to be able once again to leave jail and go into hiding as he awaits trial.

Seems politically motivated. Zimmerman has always cooperated with police.

Just doing their best to deplete Zimmerman’s defense fund.
Can’t let him have too good of an attorney. If he wins, he
has to be broke for his next hurtle, civil court.

The article is disingenuous by omission.

Zimmerman must post $100,000 cash, non refundable to the bail bondsman, and IN ADDITION render $1,000,000 collateral to the court in property or cash (returnable after the conclusion of the trial).

This pauperizes Zimmerman's entire family and renders him penniless for defense costs, the intent of the kangaroo judge and corrupt prosecutor.

It seems as though they are trying to punish Zimmerman as much as possible before the trial.

It looks as if the Marsupial Magistrate is making sure Zimmerman can be found by a black Urban Feral. When Zimmerman is killed, the issue of a riotous band of Black Urban Ferals goes away.

And - the goal of teaching Whitey he can’t shoot a black attacking him is pounded home, despite the clear intent of the Florida Legislature and the Founders.

George Washington’s warning about government being like fire - a dangerous servant and a fearsome master is being demonstrated right before our eyes.

Perhaps mere financial corruption may be afoot. Has anyone checked into the bond company which handled Zimmerman’s bond?

Perhaps there may be links between the Judge, his family, or friends, and the owner of the bail company.

Just an idea.

Why, you ask did I make such an implied accusation? Perhaps because the bond condition that Zimmerman now has to remain in the county - making it easy for one of the numerous black rqcist groups to find him and kill him.

His lawyer should request a completely new venue. This judge has expressed extreme bias toward him and has destroyed any possibility of a fair trial.

unarmed teenager

Must have been the mean old sidewalk that jumped up and busted Z's nose and bashed his head. First it was evil SUVs and guns but now sidewalks have come to life.

Zimmerman has been lestered.

Definition, Lester, N. The activity of a judge which proves judicial bias. Also V. lester.

Zimmerman was outrageously lestered by the judge who stated that the state had a strong case when in fact the only information officially submited to the judge was a erroneous and incomplee affidavit. The judge further demonstrated his bias by claiming that Zimmerman was thwarted from fleeing when in fact Zimmerman complied with every request by the police without an attorney present. In addition he complied completely with law enforement staff while on bond.

I just heard on the radio that Mr Zimmerman cannot have a bank account.

Is this true? If it is, then why can’t he have one?

Name the lie.

I thought so. Don't feel bad. Even the judge couldn't name it.

I didn't see it, but they probably want to limit his access to any funds to "ensure this international terrorist doesn't abscond to another country".

I don’t understand why he’s not allowed to have a bank account. Is this normal? It’s not as if the govment can’t dip into it or observe it.

Does this mean that Mr Zimmerman cannot get a job? If he did/could, he can only be paid in cash?

They are bleeding him anyway they can.

Meanwhile a mural for the skittles thug is scheduled to be painted in NYC. May that wall crumble.

As it is always easier for a defendant and their attorney(s) to prepare their defense outside jail;

and as Z's defense and additional security measures are no doubt very expensive and will eat up that $200k defense fund quickly;

and as this feckless, MORON, biased, judge obviously knows this;

small wonder he placed such an exhorbitant amount for bail, hoping to keep Z incarcerated and making it more difficult on him and (apparently) having prejudged his guilt and intending him to be convicted.

PS: bad enough the IJIT State's Attorney (the media, family, activists, etc.) have tried to prejudice this case now it appears the trial judge has stepped in and helped "Poison the well," with regards to prospective jurrors, with his (unproven) accusations that Z had intended to "absond" with the loot he received from donations and "skip out of the country!"

What a DISGRACE to the bench!!!

h. The defendant shall not consume any alcohol.

Patently unbiblical:

Give strong drink to him that is ready to perish, and wine to those that are of heavy hearts. — Pv 31:6

Also, it is likely violative of the FL Constitution:

ARTICLE 1, SECTION 3. Religious freedom.—
There shall be no law respecting the establishment of religion or prohibiting or penalizing the free exercise thereof. Religious freedom shall not justify practices inconsistent with public morals, peace or safety. No revenue of the state or any political subdivision or agency thereof shall ever be taken from the public treasury directly or indirectly in aid of any church, sect, or religious denomination or in aid of any sectarian institution.

While the order isn't a law, its violation would be punishable by law, therefore that law would be prohibiting such exercise.
