Remember back when George Zimmerman was brought into custody and the judge gave him that weak $150,000 bond? Well, we all know that after being exposed as a scheming liar who was holding big dollars from acquiring donations for his legal fund from crazy
racists folks, he was sent back to jail and had his bail revoked. Fast forward to today, and after some deep thought and hearing numerous arguments, Judge Kenneth Lester decided to set his new bond at $1 million.
According to CNN, though Judge Lester believed that Zimmerman tried to play the system, it ultimately wasn’t enough to hold him without bail until trial proceedings. Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda tried to argue that because Zimmerman is a liar he should stay in jail: “He quite frankly was manipulating the whole thing; he was using his wife as a conduit.” In fact, Zimmerman and his wife would speak in code during their jailhouse conversations, with him asking her to transfer these new, magical funds out of his account and into hers. Though Judge Lester seemed to largely side with the prosecutor, it seems that it wasn’t enough to warrant an extended stay in jail if he can come up with the money.
To be clear, though the bail was set much higher to hopefully keep Zimmerman from fleeing the country, he only needs to put up about 10 percent of the $1 million to be able to go free. And according to reports, Zimmerman does have enough money available to put up that 10 percent. If and when he does go free, according to USA Today, he is being ordered by Judge Lester to stay in Seminole County and he must wear an electronic monitoring device at his OWN expense…since he’s balling and all…
In the hearing, Judge Lester also took the time to point out that he could no longer see Zimmerman’s familial ties as a positive factor and believes that if given the chance, his people would be willing and ready to lie in court or on the stand. And though he claimed the higher bail wasn’t a punishment, because he felt Zimmerman didn’t earn or save the money he has and has been using, what he has to dole out for freedom would be of “little consequence to him.” Interesting indeed.
Hmmm…who knows what kind of antics or mess this man will get into if and when he posts bail and is back on the streets once again. Please…talking about he lied about the money he had because he didn’t trust the system…yeah, right. Let’s be real, he lied because he’s a liar, and that’s what liars do, and he’s been lying since the night he killed Trayvon Martin. Instead of sending money to this fool somebody needs to send him a copy of Liar Liar. The VHS copy just to make things especially hard for him…
What do you think of the bail increase?
