150k bail, but this is the big news of the day.
"In a dramatic moment during the hearing, a detective, under questioning from O'Mara, admitted that it has no clear evidence that Zimmerman attacked Trayvon Martin first."
And yet the prosecution is going for murder 2. No way Jose. Murder 2 might make the mob happy, but that is all. He's walking. I doubt they could have gotten manslaughter, but I know they won't get murder 2.
You could walk up to any stranger on the street, give them a load of crap, maybe block their path and stand in their face. They shove you, you hit the deck and blow their brains our with a concealed weapon. No one can prove you attacked them first. Is this OK?
Two guys... one with a gun following one with a packet of skittles. The guy with the skittles is dead, the one with a gun barely had a scratch.

Zoo, you understand the prosecution will have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt exactly what happened for him to be convicted? You can make up all the conjecture you want, and not a bit of it is evidence. They have no evidence Z attacked M. Without evidence, they cannot convict M2. Maybe a very effective prosecutor could spin a yarn good enough to get manslaughter, which has much lower thresholds, but you actually need evidence for M2. All the yarn in the world won't make any difference.
all i know is if he is found not guilty there will be riots sad but true. im happy i live in a small town away from the city
ABC News has just broadcast a never-before-seen photo that apparently shows blood on the back of George Zimmerman's head immediately after he shot Trayvon Martin. The photo would appear to back up Zimmerman's assertion that he fought with Martin, and that Martin slammed his head into the concrete sidewalk during the scuffle. It would also verify the police report that said Zimmerman was bleeding that night. ABC says that the photo was taken by a witness who arrived on scene after hearing the altercation and that metadata embedded in the photo confirms the time and location to be right after the February shooting.
