Zimmerman needs a million to get out of jail

Yesterday Judge Kenneth Lester set George Zimmerman’s bond at $1,000,000. To get out of jail, Zimmerman must have a collateral worth $1,000.000. Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, has posted a plea for financial support for Zimmerman’s defense and legal fees.

O’Mara writes:

For those who have given in the past, for those who have thought about giving, for those who feel Mr. Zimmerman was justified in his actions, for those who feel they would do the same if they were in Mr. Zimmerman’s shoes, for those that think Mr. Zimmerman has been treated unfairly by the media, for those who feel Mr. Zimmerman has been falsely accused as a racist, for those who feel this case is an affront to their constitutional rights—now is the time to show your support.

I sent a donation this morning to the George Zimmerman Legal Defense Fund. If you believe, with me, that Zimmerman is innocent and that the American media and the Florida authorities have treated him monstrously, I urge you to do the same.

Another thing. The judge said that the reason Zimmerman’s initial bond was revoked and he was re-arrested was that the authorities were convinced he and his wife were about to leave the country, using $130,000 in donations they had concealed.

I say this. If it’s true that Zimmerman was planning to flee the U.S., I would have totally supported him in that, and I would have sent him money to help him in his escape and in his residence abroad. There is no law or truth in his prosecution. The fact-free, lying Murder 2 indictment, the fact that prosecutor Angela Corey in announcing the indictment openly presented herself as an emotional partisan of Trayvon Martin’s parents, yet was not dismissed from her position or even criticized for this, in addition to the national media lynch mob, aided and abetted by conservatives, that preceded the indictment, all prove, as I said on April 12, that America is now—in key respects, and certainly with respect to this case—not a country under the rule of law, but a leftist ideological state. America to George Zimmerman is as a Communist regime to a “class enemy.” The American regime intends to destroy him, period. And the conservatives who don’t understand this—such as the people who on the occasion of Zimmermann’s indictment immediately began talking like Pollyanna about how he would be acquitted, not pausing a single moment to acknowledge the horrible thing that had already been done to him—are fatally naïve. They just can’t handle the truth.
