Zimmerman to request new bond hearing, aiming to get out of jail - again

George Zimmerman's lawyers have vowed to file a motion asking a Florida judge for a new bond hearing for their client Monday, a day after the murder suspect returned to jail on a judge's order.

The 28-year-old Florida man accused in the death of Trayvon Martin had been free on bond for weeks until Sunday afternoon, when he turned himself in to authorities in Seminole County, Florida.

Zimmerman become a focus of intense national attention earlier this year, after he fatally shot the unarmed African-American teenager who had just gone out to buy a bag of Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea at a 7-Eleven in Sanford, Florida.

The neighborhood watch volunteer had claimed the February 26 shooting was in self-defense. Martin's family and civil rights activists from around the nation contended Zimmerman, who is white Hispanic, racially profiled the 17-year-old and ignored a 911 dispatcher's request not to follow him.

    Jeff was putting forth a theory that he had posted yesterday, that Zimmerman was a pusher.
    I read it.
    Sorry you guys didn't.
    It's as plausible a theory as any bs that Zimmerman is putting forth, or has been speculated HERE.
    What you folks have been writing about him is unwarranted and uncalled for, and, quite simply, mean spirited.

    I've changed my opinion on one of you, not that it matters.
    I hope you're feeling good about bashing another poster.
