BROOKS: Well, that`s why they`re going to take him to this safe house, because we have seen, you know, demonstrations. And the country is basically divided into two camps: those that think George Zimmerman gunned down Trayvon Martin in cold blood; and those that think that he was standing his ground and this is a case of self-defense.

GEORGE ZIMMERMAN OUT ON BOND, IN SAFEHOUSE
ON 08 JULY 2012.
George Zimmerman is currently in a safehouse provided by his security team located in Seminole County. He left the Seminole County Jail Friday at 2:50 PM after posting bond. In addition to the $15,000 Mr. Zimmerman paid for his previous bond, $85,000 was paid from the George Zimmerman Legal Defense Fund to reach the 10% of the $1,000,000 required. The legal defense team was able to arrange terms sufficient to satisfy collateral requirements on the balance of the bond.

Thanks to the outpouring of support from supporters, at the time of Mr. Zimmerman’s release, more than $36,000 has been added to the George Zimmerman Legal Defense Fund. These donations have helped begin to offset the expense of the new increased bond, but it will require sustained support to fund what Mr. Zimmerman’s legal defense.

Mr. Zimmerman’s involvement will prove critical for building his case, and his current bond status will allow him to be an active participant in his defense. The defense team maintains that Mr. Zimmerman has a strong self-defense claims, and that is what we will be focusing on in the months ahead.

In his 9-page ruling, Judge Lester stated that GZ was getting ready to flee - however, I'm not aware of any evidence submitted to prove that - and I really don't believe that the Judge can read minds.
Did he lie about his second passport? I believe that he could flee long time ago and he didnt. My kids are USA citizens and they have their american passports and passports from my country so I believe that George may have a legal passport from Peru because he is a kid of a peruvian citizen.

GZ gave the 2nd passport to O'Mara

Please pardon if this link has been previously posted.  It leads to a blog about TM at the 7-11...it's really based on what transpired while TM was captured on the store's security camera.  It's interesting...but you have to watch the videos with the sound on to get all of what the blogger is presenting.

100 foot Trayvon Martin Mural Going Up in NY

    The city’s first known Trayvon Martin mural is going up on a wall of an East New York laundromat - adding to a brewing campaign to make sure history doesn’t snub the slain teen’s image.

    Teenage boys will start painting the 100-foot picture July 16 on New Lots Laundromat’s wall underneath the elevated tracks of the IRT No. 3 train.

    The East New York mural will join a growing list of similar street art popping up in black neighborhoods across the country.

    “We want him to become a martyr, and it’s sad that we even have to say that,” said Catherine Green, executive director of ARTs East New York Inc., who is overseeing the project.

    “We want to see change coming out of this. People see a young man with a hoodie and they think he is a criminal.”

    The seven young painters will show off the outline for the giant image in mid-July but are set on drawing Martin dressed in the his famed sweatshirt.

    “It goes back to hip-hop and how people dress. When you see that hoodie, it signifies what people think about our young men in our community,” Green said.

    State Sen. Eric Adams (D-Crown Heights) used the picture on a June 7 flyer inviting young Brooklynites to a rally against a floundering Stand Your Ground bill stalled in Albany.

    “The story of Trayvon Martin will find its way into the history books,” Adams said. “It symbolizes the frustration and anger of young men of color losing their lives — by their own hands, by the hands of the police, and by vigilante groups.”

Mark O'Mara on soliciting funds to defend George Zimmerman: "I'm a bit conflicted by it, to be honest"

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes Mark O’Mara for a candid and revealing exclusive interview, touching upon the state of George Zimmerman, both financially, and emotionally.
 
Four days after posting bail, O'Mara opens about having to solicit donations for his client's defense strategy:
 
"I'm a bit conflicted by it, to be honest. We're trying to deal with the reality that George does not have any funds of his own," he tells Piers Morgan. "He can only get those funds from his supporters."
 
Noting that the situation is rather unique, Zimmerman's defense attorney explains how the case's overwhelming price tag left him little choice:
 
"It was a decision, that we were sort of put in the position of having to do, because of the bond amount," he says. "In the past, I had never really asked for money on George's behalf. And though we had the defense fund active, we never really pushed it. The reality is, however, that with a one million dollar bond, and a one hundred thousand fee to get that bond done, we can not do it without support from George's supporters."

Did George Zimmerman try to get away with murder?

Supporters of George Zimmerman don’t like my raising questions about his story of how he came to kill Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26. They jump on any and every story on Trayvon’s past — some true, some erroneous, some flat-out false — to justify Zimmerman taking the life of the unarmed 17-year-old. Yet, when it comes to Zimmerman’s questionable present-day actions that led to his bond being revoked and a stiffer one being imposed, these same supporters are mute.

Yes, Trayvon had been suspended from school in Miami three times. Once for excessive tardiness and truancy. Once for graffiti. And once for being found with a plastic baggie that had traces of marijuana. There was also the case of campus security finding twelve pieces of women’s jewelry in his backpack that he said belonged to a friend, but refused to give a name to school officials. Trayvon’s parents say they didn’t know about this incident. But Miami-Dade Police told the Associated Press in March that none of the jewelry matched any reported stolen. Trayvon was never disciplined in that incident.

Photos released of a more sinister-looking Trayvon seemed to bolster the unfounded view that he was a thug looking for trouble. The only problem was those photos were not of Trayvon and came from questionable sources. That Trayvon was found with negligible traces of marijuana in his system the night he was killed provided another reason for Zimmerman’s supporters to crow. Still, none of this mattered that rainy night in Sanford, Fla., or today.

When Zimmerman and Trayvon had their fatal confrontation, the neighborhood watch volunteer who thought Trayvon was “a real suspicious guy” who was “up to no good or he’s on drugs or something” knew nothing about the hoodie-wearing teen. But since that night, we’ve learned a lot about Zimmerman that truly matters in the second-degree murder case against him.   ::snipping2::

City dismantles Trayvon Martin memorial
Items inventoried, moved to city museum
July 9 '12


CNN
 (CNN) -
An impromptu memorial to slain teenager Trayvon Martin has been dismantled, but the items that composed it are being preserved, the city of Sanford, Florida, announced Monday.

After consultations with Martin's family, city staff members removed the items from the entrance of the subdivision where Martin was shot in February during a confrontation with neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, City Manager Norton Bonaparte's office said.

Zimmerman, 28, was released from jail Friday after posting bond on a second-degree murder charge. He has said he shot Martin in self-defense after Martin assaulted him.

The city workers moved the objects to the Sanford Museum on Monday afternoon, the announcement said.

"All the items retrieved have been carefully handled and inventoried," it said.  ::snipping2::

Am posting this because I believe the same media bias/lies apply to Martin-Zimmerman

Blacks in Jasper, TX Say CNN & NY Times LIED in Racism Story about Police Chief Rodney Pearson Firing
July 9 '12

Blacks in Jasper, TX Say CNN & NY Times LIED in Racism Story about Police Chief Rodney Pearson Firing
Black Residents in Jasper, TX are stepping up and speaking out against CNN and the New York Times. The Former Police Chief, Rodney Pearson, was fired and the City Council members who hired him were recalled. Pearson is black. Pearson says he was fired because of his race even though he was fired because of, among other things, his low qualifications, low performance, and a criminal record. The liberal media gets contacted by Pearson's race baiting lawyer and next thing you know there are stories on CNN and the New York Times alleging that the white people in Jasper are racist and did not want a black person in a leadership position in this city.

This is CLEARLY false and many black residents have stepped forward to speak out against the claims that Pearson was fired because he was black, and to demand that these liberal media outlets correct the false and misleading information in their stories.

When Pearson was fired I wrote an article predicting that the race card would be pulled and I sure was right.


Below is a breakdown of some of the lies and misleading information that these liberal media outlets have spewed:  ::snipping2::

Aired July 9, 2012 - 21:00   ET
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

 ::snipping2::

MORGAN: Coming up, the man who killed Trayvon Martin is out of jail on a million dollars bond. Next, George Zimmerman's attorney tells me exclusively what Zimmerman has said since he got out.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

MORGAN: George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, is out of jail on one million dollars bond. But his attorney made a statement that's been pretty controversial. Joining me now in his first exclusive interview since he got his client released is that attorney, Mark O'Mara. Mark, welcome back.

MARK O'MARA, ATTORNEY FOR GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: Good evening. How you doing, Piers?

MORGAN: Your client is out. He got his bond. People have been a little bit surprised. I'm going to take this straight to you for your reaction tot his, about the strategy that you've adopted, which is to go public and say, if you agree that my clients' actions were with justified, then donate money to his defense funds.

Tell me about the thinking behind the strategy, and about the way that it's now blown up as a bit of a controversial thing for you to have done.

O'MARA: Well, it is a bit unique, again. And I'm a bit conflicted by it, to be honest. We try to deal with the reality that George does not have any funds of his own. He can only get those funds from his supporters. And a lot of those supporters, the comments they've given us have shown a variety -- a spectrum of support, a lot of which are those that believe that George did, in fact, act appropriately.


MORGAN: Right, but it is, as you say, a unique situation for a defense attorney to effectively say, look, you may believe he killed somebody, and he clearly did, but if you think he acted in self- defense and is justified, give us your money. It's something -- as critics would say, and there's some merit to the argument, it's slightly crude, isn't it? It's a sort of -- it's a very weird thing to be doing, isn't it?

O'MARA: It is. As I said, I was somewhat -- am somewhat conflicted with it, only because it is so very unique. This whole case has shown a lot of unique facets to it, one of which the fact that there is a criminal defense fund at all; secondly, that it's garnered such an amazing controversy and support throughout the nation and internationally. So it was a decision that we were sort of put in a position of having to do because of the bond amount.

As you remember, Piers, we had talked in the past that I had never really asked for money on George's behalf. And though we had the defense fund active, we never really pushed it. The reality is, however, that with a one million dollar bond, and a 100,000 dollar fee to get that bond done, we cannot do it without support from George's supporters.

MORGAN: How do you know, though, that there are no racist groups getting involved in this fund-raising? Are you vetting each donor? Do you know who they are? Clearly, the way this has been framed is an open invitation to any of the racists who raised their ugly heads at the time, to say, hey, this guy shot a black guy, I'm going to give him some money. How do you know that's not happening?

O'MARA: My true opinion is that I've reviewed thousands of the supporters' comment that have come to us. They have all been positive and I would say appropriate. There have been a very few that have been negative. Those monies have been returned.

So at least those people who are comments are doing it from their heart and from the right place. After all, there could be racist people on both sides of this fence. We have an enormous amount of hate mail that comes to us as well, from racists on the other side of it. Any racists from the white side, if you will, who do something like that, we go into -- rebuff them and not accept their money.

MORGAN: What is the time scale now, Mark, in terms of how you see the legal process moving forward in the next few months?

O'MARA: I still think we have about six months of discovery to go. That is getting the rest of discovery from the state, then getting our discovery, getting our request out to various state agencies and organizations that we want to get information from. Then coming up with our experts and then getting ready for either a pretrial motion, a Stand Your Ground motion and then trial if need be.

MORGAN: In terms of his personal safety, is he entitled to any state protection? If he isn't, what is he doing about protecting himself in terms of security or whatever else he may be having?

O'MARA: Unfortunately, he's not entitled to any state provided security. So the security that is he under now is only coming from the legal defense fund, which is why again, a request for funds has been made uniquely, but had to be made merely because of a number of reasons. One, his own safety, and two, the presentation of the case.

So it is now on his shoulders, but in effect is on the shoulders of all of his supporters.

MORGAN: Mark O'Mara, as always, thank you for joining us. I appreciate it.

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-07-09/news/os-george-zimmerman-more-evidence-20120709_1_second-degree-murder-case-evidence-release

New evidence Thursday in Trayvon Martin shooting
4:35 p.m. EST, July 9, 2012

More evidence in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin is set for public release Thursday morning, prosecutors said Monday.

A recent court filing shows the documents include statements from several new civilian witnesses, reports generated by the FBI and Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Zimmerman's prior calls to police and his application for a concealed weapon permit.

The evidence also includes a sketch of the crime scene, as well as notes and memos from various investigators.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara received the evidence last month. It will be released to the media 10 a.m. Thursday. George Zimmerman faces a second-degree murder charge in the Feb. 26 shooting. He says he shot the Miami Gardens teen in self-defense.
