George Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin in February, has been released on bail.
George Zimmerman has been released on bail:
(CNN) – George Zimmerman was released from jail on Friday, one day after a Florida judge set bail at $1 million.
Judge Kenneth R. Lester Jr. found that Zimmerman’s deceit over cash holdings at his first bond hearing in April was not enough to hold him
without bail. However, he also said he believed the suspect may have been planning to flee the country to avoid prosecution in the killing of
Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman had to post 10% of the $1 million — or $100,000 — to meet the requirement for release.
I don’t know if Zimmerman is lying or not about Trayvon Martin (hopefully the objective justice system will decide this case with all the fairness it deserves ha ha just kidding this is going to be a media circus), but I will say that he isn’t helping himself by lying to the court about his finances and hiding a second passport in his house.
What do you think? Is Zimmerman’s release reasonable or unjust?
