Sad thing is more people will probably contribute to his defense fund if this story turns out to fact.
Today the State released Witness #9′s Statements along with Mr. Zimmerman’s phone calls from jail in response to the Court’s July 13 order.
In her statements, Witness #9, who is George Zimmerman’s cousin, alleges that Mr. Zimmerman inappropriately touched her beginning when she was 6 and Mr. Zimmerman was almost 8, and that it continued on occasion until she was 16 and Mr. Zimmerman was 17.
The defense moved to block the public release of Witness #9′s statement in a motion filed on June 18, 2012 contending “The content of this statement is not relevant to the issues of this case, and it would not be admissible in the State’s case in chief.”
The motion further contends that this irrelevant statement should be withheld from public dissemination because of the substantial risk that public disclosure will lead to widespread hostile publicity which would substantially impair the Defendant’s fair trial rights, and would pose a serious threat to the administration of justice.
I commend him for having the courage to do this much needed video.
While the world was in a frenzy about the antics of Nicki Minaj and Hot 97, George Zimmerman was thrown back in jail for lying about finances.
Justice served, at least concerning him being on the street.

ORLANDO — A Florida judge on Friday revoked the bond for George Zimmerman, saying he misrepresented financial status.
He has 48 hours to surrender.
“I have followed Trayvon’s case closely and I think any compassionate human being can relate to Trayvon as a brother or son and would want to see a thorough investigation into the killing of an unarmed person. In my portrait I wanted to emphasize Trayvon’s humanity as well as the public outcry for a just investigation into his death.”
In the last few days information has surfaced concerning this case and here is the murdered Trayvon Martin right before he mets George Zimmerman.
The surreal images show Martin, whom many of us have never seen alive but have grown to care for deeply, dressed in a gray hoodie, tan pants and white sneakers. He is casually paying for his Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea, before attempting to make it home to his father. Moments later, he would encounter George Zimmerman, 28, who thought he looked “suspicious.”
After being a couple of quiet weeks concerning this case we get news that House Dems want to disband the Stand Your Ground law.

House Democrats said Tuesday they will offer an amendment to push to overturn stand-your-ground self-defense laws in states like Florida.
The amendment, which would withhold some grants from states that have such laws, will come as part of the House’s debate on the Commerce Department spending bill.
I guess the new lawyers pulled this move to try and humanize him and to send a message to any jurors that he is a nice guy and really did not mean to do this. Check out video below:
George Zimmerman stunned a Florida court today by taking the stand and apologizing to the parents of Trayvon Martin, who were sitting in the courtroom during Zimmerman’s bond hearing.”I am sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am.
Now let’s hope a jury does not free this dude in the verdict in this trial.
George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the special prosecutor for the case announced. He is currently being held in custody after turning himself in to authorities.
This story has taken another dramatic turn and if this does not show he is guilty hopefully a full blown trial will.

SANFORD – George Zimmerman’s attorneys withdrew from the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting case Tuesday, saying they have lost contact with their client, who began making moves without consulting them.The lawyers said Zimmerman called special prosecutor Angela Corey on Tuesday, a highly unusual move for the target of an investigation who is being represented by a lawyer.Zimmerman made the call despite not having returned calls from his attorneys, Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig, since Sunday, Sonner said.
Crowd Chant’s “I’m Wearing a Hoodie, Don’t Shoot Me.”
What kills me is Zimmerman saying he is so surprised how much attention and outrage has happened with killing of Trayvon, I guess he feels that this should be just swept under the rug and forgotten. More below:
Attorney Craig Sonner said the public is only hearing part of the story, and when all the facts come out, it will be clear that Zimmerman acted in self defense. A grand jury is scheduled to begin hearing the case April 10.”George Zimmerman suffered a broken nose, and had an injury to the back of his head, he was attacked by Trayvon Martin on that evening,” Sonner said. “This was a case of self defense.” FULL STORY HERE…
Really respect these dues for this.
Finally some words from POTUS about the assassination of Trayvon Martin.
President Obama spoke in highly personal terms on Friday about how the shooting in Florida of a 17-year-old black youth named Trayvon Martin had affected him, saying that “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
The comments by Mr. Obama were his first on the explosive case in which George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch captain, has claimed self defense after shooting Mr. Martin several weeks ago. The case has generated outrage about the state’s so-called Stand Your Ground law.
