Trayvon Martin: The Latest News, Week 43

George Zimmerman (Getty Images News)
 

Thursday, Dec. 27, 10:40 a.m. EST: The parents of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman cope with aftermath of killing:In the 10 months since her son Trayvon was killed, Sybrina Fulton has become a national activist who mostly stays in hotels as she travels from one engagement to another to speak about self-defense laws, the Miami Heraldwrites. Meanwhile, the mother of George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood-watch leader who has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of the unarmed teenager, has been in hiding.

 

Wednesday, Dec. 26, 10:39 a.m. EST: Security firm sues Zimmerman and his attorneys for fees: The head of a security company charges in a lawsuit that defense attorney Mark O'Mara has failed to pay a balance owed after he hired the firm to provide a two-man, 24-hour security detail for George Zimmerman. Court records show that Zimmerman's legal team paid $40,000 for security services, but Chris Rumbaugh, head of the firm, says that they stopped paying when the former neighborhood-watch leader's defense fund started to run out, according to WFTV-9. Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, who was unarmed. The shooting ignited cries of injustice after Zimmerman was initially released without being charged under Florida's "Stand your ground" laws.

George Zimmerman's Next Court Date Is on Trayvon Martin's 18th Birthday

The next court hearing for Geore Zimmerman was supposed to be next week, on January 8, but the judge in charge of the case decided that the hearing wasn't necessary, so she rescheduled Zimmerman's next court appearance to an eerily significant date.

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson delayed Zimmerman's next hearing until February 5, a date that the young man Zimmerman is accused of killing most certainly would have had marked in his calender.  February 5, 2013 would have been Trayvon Martin's 18th birthday. Zimmerman is still out on GPS monitoring, but walking freely, on $1 million bond while he awaits trial in June.

Do you know any Black person that has been charged with (murder) i.e,/manslaughter, and their trial winds up being a year or years away in a little piss ass town in; not Miami, or some other big city that may have an extremely large docket? 

Yep, that's my fear, too, Sunnubian!!  

 

I don't want the severity of how this White/Hispanic man murdered a young, innocent, unarmed Black teenager in cold blood to be diminished by the time this thing goes to trial.  

 

Nor how he's been trying since Day 1 to milk this thing for sympathy ('cause ain't nobody tryin' to kill' his ass ... i.e., this ridiculous "fearing for his life" BS and supposedly needing 'security' that he can't/won't pay for ... while lying about/hiding hundreds of thousands of dollars from court!   and walking the streets freely while his parents suffer everyday without their only child.

 

He won't have to worry about any credible "threats" until after the trial is over.  One way or another.  'Cause whether he goes free or goes to jail .... it's not until then he will have reason to be afraid!!  Very, very afraid.
