Official: Charges Coming in Trayvon Martin Death (Will arrest Zim out of state soon)
AP ^ | Wednesday Aprl 11,, 2012

SNIP

The law enforcement official said that authorities knew where Zimmerman was and were planning to arrest him soon rather than let him turn himself in. The official said he was not in Florida.

Zimmerman's shooting of the unarmed black teenager Feb. 26 brought demands from black leaders for his arrest and set off a furious nationwide debate over race and self-defense that reached all the way to the White House.

The 28-year-old Zimmerman, whose father is white and whose mother is Hispanic, said the teenager attacked him. Martin's family argued Zimmerman was the aggressor.

On Tuesday, Zimmerman's lawyers announced they were withdrawing from the case because they hadn't heard from him since Sunday and didn't know where he was. They portrayed his mental state as fragile.

"He is largely alone. You might even say he is emotionally crippled by virtue of the pressure of this case," said one of the lawyers, Hal Uhrig.

The case has drawn the interest of the highest levels of the Obama administration, with the Justice Department's civil rights division opening its own investigation.

Sad to say I think they’re doing him a favor if they charge him with something. I think he’ll be safer from retribution.

Why would they not allow him to turn himself in? It could be pre-arranged in a safe location.

The whole purpose is to make RACISM the central issue of the elections instead of the focus being on the economy, nationalization of healthcare and Obama’s failures. For these evil people, it does not matter that they will destroy the life of an innocent person in the process.

I suspect that his arrest will be announced during the upcoming press conference. Timing, timing, timing.... makes for great visual impact.

Zimmerman, the victim of a politically and racist motivated lynching, could have saved himself all of these problems, if he had simply allowed the Black Skittles punk to finish killing him.

I hope Rush is right. He seems to think that Zimmerman has fled to another country that does not honor extradition of citizens from another country, such as Brazil—

Zimmerman should just fly to Peru or where ever his mom is from and live there, his life here is over either way thanks to the race peddlers.

Zimmerman is already Nifonged.

the fact there are now race card players and gun control fanatics screaming who have long forgotten this matter just proves this case is no longer about the law or justice.

Perhaps we need a significant review and curtailing of the abuse of state wide prosecutors. Particularly was tools of lynch mobs.

police are reporting they know where he is and will be doing a public perp walk. No opportunity to surrender as others are allowed.

remember trials are supposed to be UNFAIR to the prosecution. A prosecutor who demands a fair trial is misleading the jury.

If he’s out of state, he can probably kiss off any chance of bond. Which would be best anyhow, as he’s a dead man walking in a large chunk of this country.

Actually, the US and Brazil do have an extradition treaty. Since December, 1964. Only countries I see where we really don’t are China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia and various Middle Eastern countries. Here’s a list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_extradition_treaties

Zimmerman has absolutely no chance to receive anything close to a fair trial anywhere in America. He has been tried and convicted by the media and the race hustlers as well as Martin's family. We all know the blather about 'justice' really means 'revenge'. The Florida authorities just want to throw the mobs some red meat - Zimmerman- and hope they go away. His possible innocence is an impediment to doing that so he doesn't have a chance.

If Zimmerman fled to another country without extradition it will be somewhat understandable. He certainly hasn't a chance for anything close to a normal life in the U.S. anymore, assuming he wasn't assassinated within a few days of his arrest, a la Lee Harvey Oswald because that would give the mobs exactly what they want: blood.

Zimmerman is a registered democrat and self-identified Hispanic. His father is Jewish and describes George as a “Spanish speaking minority.”
Democrats made this a race issue.
Obama has twice publicly cried racism regarding specific incidents and it involved democrats both times.
Next time a democrat says that Republicans are racist, remind them of George Zimmerman and the Cambridge police officer who “acted stupidly.”
Sit back and watch the democrats destroy themselves.

"He wouldn't last a week in lockup"

He may not last a week ANYWHERE, once his whereabouts are known, with a $10K Dead or Alive Reward for him.

I think the New Black Panthers should be sent the bill for incarceration, since the ONLY reason to Arrest him is to keep him alive due to their posting a Bounty, and he has NOT been Indicted, nor are there any Charges that warrant Arrest, from what all has been said. He acted under Self Defense, and unless Reasonable Cause exists to show otherwise, he is not being treated fairly at all.

You KNOW it will be a Black (predominently) Jury that hears the "Case", and they will not vote for the "white" guy, to risk harm to themselves if they Acquit. Count on a conviction for sure, to try to keep from having the City burnt to the ground.

There is no doubt that the dems plan to make race an issue in the upcoming election. Dollars to donuts they will make an issue of early Mormons not allowing Blacks into the priesthood.

By bringing him to trial all actual evidence will come out. However, how many “witnesses” will lie? And how many jurors will be honest. The best he can hope for is a hung jury. That is if he lives long enough to go before a jury.

I think the powers that be simply got Zimmerman and his family out of here. It was the only option , then create a story as a distraction to keep the public engaged.

I mentioned before the next thing we'll hear are stories saying somebody saw him in various places....this too will keep "'the story" going...and give Zimmerman time to settle where ever they have taken him.

This whole affair has taught us all...we're on our own when it comes to justice...there is none in the USA anymore.

There doesn’t seem to be anything but littering or discharging a firearm in a public place that’d fit the most persuasive version of the facts in the case. Somehow, I don’t think that’d satisfy the racist lynch mob.

My point was that charges HAD to be brought against him to appease the mob out there. (I just read that he’s charged with 2nd degree murder. I’m not at all sure that he’ll be found guilty.)

“The 28-year-old Zimmerman, whose father is white and whose mother is Hispanic...”

Let’s be clear about this. Zimmerman’s father is Jewish, and his mother is Mestizo Peruvian.

Demographically, Peruvians in Peru are: Amerindian 45%, mestizo (mixed Amerindian and white) 37%, white 15%, black, Japanese, Chinese, and other 3%.
