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.

    You go Zimmerman – can't keep a good man down. Don't let them hang you without a trial. We know you are not a white man but they want you to be sooo what can we do? Wish you were a black man and this would never appear in the news media again.

      She hit him first!!!! Thought you knew that. If a woman hits a man she should get it back. You see women on TV slap a man for nothing but if a man hits a woman he is automatically a woman beater. Go figure!

    @ Lizabeth, were YOU there? You dont have idea what was or was not said, nor by whom. The only thing we can base what really happened is by what has been said by GZ, the 9ll audio, and the few distant witnesses. And as stated earlier, makes GZ guilty!

      People do stupid things when they have a 9mm in their pocket. I think he was looking for trouble and manipulated the whole situation, including the police, who should've known better... that's the biggest problem imo. How they gave GZ preferential treatment.

      I'd sue them if it were my son lying dead in the morgue for three days, testing his blood, instead of the man who shot him. Can you imagine how betrayed his family feels?

    No I didn't know that, but, I don't go around hitting people, male or female. Guess I'm not up with the latest rules regarding domestic violence... go figure. I think it's wrong for a man to hit a woman, period.

    BIG, little, man...

    And dont be sorry hope, Zimmerman has had numerous assault charges brought up against him. He cant have been such an innocent for that to have happened.
