Zimmerman Granted Bond

April 20, 2012 by  

George Zimmerman, charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., was granted a bond of $150,000 by Judge Kenneth Lester Jr.

The prosecution argued that Zimmerman is a threat to the community and asked that the judge deny the request or set the amount at $1 million. But Lester did not do so.

Zimmerman will be monitored with a GPS system and must report his whereabouts every three days. He will not allowed to be in possession of firearms.

    I don’t think he deserve a bond, because he shot that young man for no reason other than hate. He attacked trayvon. The young man did not attack him, and he calls that self defense. His attorneys can’t lie and call that self defense all day long. But it was murder.

        Avery- you are exactly correct! That man was engaged in a self-assigned act of thuggery. Zimmerman is a little man who was trying to make a name for himself by attacking a young man of color. What an ass! Zimmerman should be left in prison with newly found friends who could help him understand the errors of his ways. Such a travesty.

        Laus Deo- Do you ever have anything of value to add? Or has your indoctrination stumped your little mind with juvenile thoughts?

        Some words for you:

        Innocent until proven guilty.

        Self Defense from a thug beating on you.

        Case dismissed.

    The OP writes:

    So why does he hae to report his whereabouts every 3 days if his GPS is reporting his whereabouts every few seconds?

    He will not allowed to be in possession of firearms.

    And the Secret Service is going to be guarding him around the clock?

    It sounds like this prosecutor is kowtowing to Trayvon’s family, and the likes of Al Sharpton. It kind of reminds me of the Rodney King case in Los Angeles 2 decades ago, in which a local resident taped the whole event with his new camcorder. But the lame stream media only showed the scene in which the cops were beating King. They omitted the scenes in which King became beligerent; violently resisting arrest. As a consequence, that was what determined public reaction and ensuing civil unrest. After the riots, the cowardly politicians out there decided to kowtow, and a few cops were wrongfully punished; possibly by double jeopardy. And sadly, it appears Zimmerman could face the same fate, even though it is a legal right to defend oneself (Who gives a **** what NYC Mayor Michael Bloomturd has to say on this??!!). We’ve already heard that Trayvon Martin had attacked Zimmerman. As for this prosecutor, Al not-so-sharp Sharpton, Eric Holder, et al, they should be thankful I’m not a cop. If I were, and one of these morons were on my beat and in danger, I’d surely be reluctant to use any needed deadly force against THEIR assailants.

      Earl and Freedom Fighter, it seems that Uncle Scam’s ‘friends’ were never told that the Napoleonic Code is an old, favorite tool used by those who HATE justice. Uncle Scam is in the “racist” business, and wants no part of truth, justice or freedom. Uncle Scam’s ‘friends,’ whiz off.
      Anybody know how much professional “racists” are paid these days?

        I am not sure how the Napoleonic Code can be any more used as a tool by those who HATE justice then our own system.

        It even has some of the concepts we have in our Constitution. It was modified over time a bit and when moved into some of the regions such as the Middle East it did get the distortions that could cause a problem.

        What in particular about the code do you think makes it more effective by those who hate justice?

        I did note that there was some controversy over certain elements such as
        “The possibility for justice to endorse lengthy remand periods was one reason why the Napoleonic Code was criticized for de facto presumption of guilt, particularly in common law countries. Another reason was the combination of magistrate and prosecutor in one position.[6] However, the legal proceedings certainly did not have de jure presumption of guilt; for instance, the juror’s oath explicitly recommended that the jury did not betray the interests of the defendants, and took attention of the means of defense.”

        I also noticed the author of the wikiedia entry consistently confused Catholic and Christian. The kept talking about stuff removed then in () would say I.E. Christian. The stuff removed was always from Catholicism such as the crime of blasphemy.

        These so called “religious” laws are just examples of some people using their religious beliefs and the power of government to force their beliefs on others. This behavior is NOT the Christian way.

        Liberals hate it but a careful study of the Constitution shows a strong presence of the way of Christ.
