Zimmerman to seek second bond

George Zimmerman and his attorney will be back before a Florida judge Friday to argue Zimmerman should be allowed bond a second time despite misrepresenting his finances.

Zimmerman, charged with second-degree murder in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, will attend the morning hearing unshackled and in civilian clothing.

Video and photos of Zimmerman wearing jail garb could prejudice prospective jurors, defense attorney Mark O'Mara argued in a motion.

Zimmerman was released on a $150,000 bond after his arrest. But he was ordered back to jail early this month after the judge revoked his bail, citing about $150,000 in donations in an account controlled by Zimmerman that he had not disclosed at the first bond hearing in April.

O'Mara is asking Seminole County Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. to set a similar bond.

    Zimmerman should be able to sue someone for what he is going through. I believe what he says about the incident is fact – he killed to save his own life. In all my years I have never seen such a media circus over any incident. What if he is telling the truth do you still want him executed? If it can happen to him it could happen to any of us. Enough already give the man his day in court.

    I don't trust GZ, I don't trust the media, the whole thing sounds iffy...I'll wait for court.
    He wouldn't be executed even if he were convicted, Dott; he is charged with 2nd degree murder, which is why he has a chance to get bail...

      There is nothing about this case that would point to second degree murder. This is all about politics. That woman from another county was TOLD to charge him even though there is no basis for this charge. Every one is pandering for the black vote and "Z" is paying the price.

    No offense, Dott, but wouldn't that make you just as disgusting for wishing it upon Mr. Dalloway?

    Dont understand why the liberal party is being blasted. I am not with the liberal party but I sure hate how Z is being treated by everyone black and white. If this was a balck on black crime it would already be forgotten. Right?

    The earth is no longer a home to George. Some day some hour some second his fall will come, you can almost see the grim reaper tapping on his shoulder.

    This slither of a human being took an innocent life and now the prison inmates are waiting, salivating for his arrival.
