    I honestly think he's much safer in jail right now. He really should not get bond for his own safety, IMO.

    I agree but he also should not get bond because he has been accused of committing second degree murder.

    From the previous thread about GZ's height and weight.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...topNews&rpc=71

    This article lists his height as 5'10". So it appears there are 2 different articles with conflicting info. I'm a little whacky sometimes but I knew I wasn't crazy.
    All my posts are MOO!

    A feeling I have is there is a camp that has already triad Zimmerman,
    they will say he has too much money in his canteen, does not need bond,
    He is guilty just because he got out of the car, end of story.

    I pray that the justice system will do much much better than that.

    I am very eager for some of the facts that we do not have. I heard enough opinions

    There is NO evidence that GZ drew his gun anytime before he was on the ground on his back. If you have some evidence to the contrary, please share. Would you say "You got a problem?" to someone pointing a gun at you? I contend that the gun was holstered right up to the point it was drawn and immediately used to stop the alleged attack on GZ.

    I agree. I think that is is a shame that someone died. I feel awful for the family for their loss, but at least let all the facts come out before the electric chair is plugged in.

    For all the relief among civil rights activists over the arrest, legal experts warned there is a real chance the case could get thrown out before it ever goes to trial because of the "stand your ground" law.

    I think that the information, which I don't have a link because it was on television, comes from Robert Zimmerman Sr. He stated that Trayvon was trying to get George's gun. In order to try and get George's gun, Trayvon would have to know George had a gun.

    IMO, even before Robert Zimmerman Sr. said this, I believed that they were wrestling over that gun. I believe that when George caught back up with Trayvon, Trayvon asks "Why are you following me/What's your problem?" (there's two different versions?) and that is when George pulled or at least reached for the gun and said "What are you doing here/Nothing. I don't have a problem?" (Again, two different versions).

    I believe that the only reason that there was any physical altercation was because George made it known that he had that gun.

    MOO

    He wouldn't get the death penalty if he is convicted. This is only a message board. Not a jury room. IMO JMO MOO

    If GZ is offered and accepts a plea and documents remain sealed, what will the parents have to do to get a copy of the autopsy?

    I think he is much safer in custody. I would be concerned if he is released because IMO he seems impulsive. Because of this I would be concerned about attempted suicide or self-harming behaviors or that he may attempt flight to escape the situation.
    IMO is is very afraid of what will happen to him and will look for relief from the situation without considering the consequences.
    IMO he seems very self-focused and unaware of others feelings or thoughts which makes it difficult for him to accept or even to process the advice of others.
    IMO he seems to have no psychological disorder and seemed to know right from wrong at the time of the crime.
    I really hope he is kept in custody where he is safe from himself.
    IMO, JMO

    I think that he is much safer in custody too, but if he does get bond, I won't be angry? He will be told he is not allowed to drink/do drugs and it's banned from having a gun in the house.

    Maybe he can go to some kind of program to get help for his issues while he is out on bond? I know he won't be able to have a gun because of the other Florida case. Remember LE found out GA had purchased a gun and they went and confiscated it?

    Likewise, since you brought up "camps", there seems to be "a camp" who has an excuse and innocent explanation for everything pertaining to GZ's actions - even his thought-process(es). JMO~

    That just does not add up. I'll tell ya, if someone has a gun pointed at me, i'm doing what they say, regardless of if I think they are right or wrong. The LAST thing I would do is come at the person. With a gun pointed at me the NUMBER ONE thing I would be thinking is "DIFFUSE THE SITUATION" Then wait for the police and tell the police that "this guy pulled a gun on me, I live here have every right to be here and is brandished a gun on me for no reason"

    I understand. Rarely do I post sarcasm, because it is often misinterperted, but it got the better of me in this post.

    Trayvon's parents stated that they would respect what the court's decide. All they wanted was an arrest and for the court's to decide. I am sure they are very aware of this case potentially being thrown out based on SYG laws. However, their fight will continue because they will make sure that the SYG laws are better defined. Even the people who made the SYG laws say that what GZ did was not protected under the SYG laws... so obviously... changes need to be made if he is.

    I personally will be standing right there beside them in their quest for justice. Justice may very well be George Zimmerman walking free... but Trayvon's case goes much further than George Zimmerman's arrest/conviction. Steps need to be taken to make sure something like this never happens again and that people like GZ do not slip through the cracks because our laws are not better defined.

    MOO
    Justice for Trayvon

    I appreciate your compassion Lola. I have none for the man and it's my personal opinion that he deserves to sit in jail and not be allowed bond. Trayvon is laying in a mausoleum and will remain there forever because of this man. He doesn't deserve to get out and be free to do whatever he wants to do. He deserves to be right where he's at until such time that a jury reaches a verdict.

    Well, I hope all the known facts are considered before it is decided that GZ's actions are covered by the SYG law. I am not sure that he would be convicted if he went to trial but with the actual facts we have now (which are few) I do not believe Stand Your Ground applies in this case. GZ followed Trayvon. He admits he followed Trayvon.

    I would rather see GZ acquitted after a trial than have a judge decide now that it is OK in Florida for a person to actively pursue another person and then shoot their way out of the situation that they initiated. The SYG law states you cannot do that, so if this is thrown out of court before it goes anywhere, heaven help us all.
