    he should have been denied bail. He lied about how much money he had- and his second passport in a safe deposit box- he was planning to skip out

    a million dollars seems a bit steep but at the same time why give him bail... just send his ass to jail. if he's guilty of course.

    He shouldn't of been able to bail out at all, but a one million dollar bail seems pretty excessive.

    If he was going to get bond, fair, but I don't think he should have gotten bond.

    It appears to me that the judge is personally offended that Zimmerman has received donations intended to help him in his defense and is trying to counteract that by throwing his weight around. If that is the case, he should not be a judge.

    As recognizable as he is, he does not constitute a flight risk, and he also does not face a open and shut case from the prosecutors office by any means, which tends to increase the likelihood of UFAP (unlawful flight to avoid prosecution). They will be awfully lucky if they can manage to get a conviction with the evidence they have.


    250,000 should be about the norm in this situation and have the suspect submit to electronic monitoring at his own expense. You also have to factor in the media exposure in this case and droves of idiots in the world who are convinced that he is either guilty or innocent to satisfy their politics. I am sure the citizens, law enforcement officers and courts in this jurisdiction will be glad to wash their hands of this circus after it is over.

    Lets be honest here though, how many times have you seen suspects fill out those reports for their assets from the court to qualify for a public defender, and they were completely forthcoming about it? I bet if you forced some lowly clerk or intern with the prosecutors office to investigate those forms they would uncover fraud in over 50% of the cases on the docket.

    I do totally see your point though, and I have little sympathy for lying to the court.

    He and his wife have already proven that they have no compunctions about lying to the court. He has issues of moral turpitude irrespective of the charges lodged against him. I feel the bond appropriate, and I'm a bail commissioner.

    Ed, I sure would, along with a few other things 'from the time of the incident'. My local Police Chief and I have chatted this up a few times, and I'm sure as it progresses we will continue to. LE loves a good LE scandal!! ;)

    Hi bags, I can't believe that the attention hasn't focused on the issue. I have been in enforcement and implementation for a few years, no longer though. The question is will they do the right thing. Let's hope so. Respectfully, Ed.
