George Zimmerman is Out on Bail!
Finally, we have some common sense in the Trayvon Martin case. Since this tragic event has happened, the media and various racist groups have been trying to lynch George Zimmerman. He finally turned himself in, he apologized to Trayvon's parents for the accidental killing of their son, and now he is free on $150,000 bail.
The worst thing I fear now is that a REAL 1st degree murder will happen stemming from a kook who is a true racist to the core, using this tragedy as an excuse to vent their views. They're out there in all colors.
The legal system has proven itself to be fair to all. The judge could have denied the request for bail citing Zimmerman as a flight risk. He could have denied the bail for Zimmerman's own safety (which would be legit), yet, Zimmerman is free, well, free from jail. He is still in a personal prison, the same one he was in BEFORE he turned himself in. Now, I am afraid someone will kill him.
If that were to happen, that would not be justice, just more tragedy. The trial is over a month away and a lot can happen. Zimmerman still may be found guilty, but even if he does win his case, he will always be looking over his shoulder for many years to come.
