Gunman George Zimmerman Catches Another Break, Judge Grants Him 1 Million Dollar Bond

| July 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

A Florida Circuit Court Judge has once again granted admitted shooter George Zimmerman a second bond of 1 million dollars after a lengthy court hearing that took place on June 29th. There were indications that Zimmerman was going to be granted a bond based on the type of questions that the judge was asking during his hearing and some had already speculated that based on the money Zimmerman had already collected via his paypal account that the bond would be around the 1 million dollar amount. He has already raised over $200,000 dollars and is only required to put up $100,000 or 10 percent of what is required for his bond. He will likely be released from jail within the next couple of days once the sheriff department approves his bond.

This obviously does not sit well with Trayvon Martin’s family as it has always been their contention that Zimmerman murdered their son after profiling him on February 26th after Zimmerman spotted Trayvon walking in the rain heading back to his father’s girlfriend apartment. During a police investigation, Zimmerman offered contradicting statements to police but was eventually released from jail. That decision by Sanford police sparked a nationwide outcry that resulted in protests and a $10,000.00 bounty being offered by the New Black Panther Party and a flyer being circulated that read “Wanted Dead or Alive.”

Prosecutors previously argued the couple talked in code during recorded jailhouse conversations about how to transfer the donations to different bank accounts. For example, George Zimmerman at one point asked how much money they had. She replied “$155.” Prosecutors allege that was code for $155,000. Their reference to “Peter Pan” was code for the PayPal system through which the donations were made, prosecutors said.

Min. Mikhail Muhammad, one of the most outspoken leaders of the New Black Panther Party has always believed that George Zimmerman should be arrested and charged with the killing of Trayvon Martin and while some criticize his choices of words as being racist, he immediately dispels such rumors and informs his critics that he is on a rightuous mission to see that Trayvon Martin’s family receive proper justice.

Action News asked, “What do you say to people who are calling you a racist?” He replied, “I’ve never mistreated any Caucasian people. Because I stand up and I speak out for justice doesn’t mean that I’m a racist.”

Min. Mikhail explained that he joined the Nation of Islam in 1990 to repair his broken spirit. And for the past 20 years, he says he’s worked to repair his broken community. He says he won’t rest, until his mission is accomplished. “Today, I’m a free black man and I’m going to continue to speak out.”

While Zimmerman is presumed innocent until proven guilty, it appears the judge in this case is very compromising to someone who has already admitted lying in his first bond hearing along with his wife who has been charged with perjury.

The cards are obviously stacked in Zimmerman’s favor for right now.

Do you believe the judge should have granted him another bond? Let us know your thoughts.
