Zimmerman May Sneak Out Of The Country, Police Say
APNews Update Report by Anita Bogart updated 1:45 PM EDT, Mon March 26, 2012
Zimmerman is a white Hispanic, and family and supporters of Martin believe race was an issue in the shooting. Zimmerman's family say he has been mistakenly portrayed as racist.
A special prosecutor is investigating the case, with a grand jury scheduled to begin deliberations on April 10. The prosecutor, Angela Corey, said last week that she does not know if a grand jury will be necessary.
"Nearly two-thirds of whites and 86% of non-whites say Zimmerman should be arrested," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland, "as well as majorities of Republicans, Democrats and independent voters."
Sanford authorities say they could not arrest Zimmerman under Florida's "stand your ground" law, which allows people to use deadly force to defend themselves anywhere they feel a reasonable fear of death or serious injury. The evidence police had at the time didn't allow for an arrest but looting and rioting are expected this spring and summer, police have said.
Zimmerman's attorney said Sunday that after reviewing Florida's "stand your ground" law, he believes it applies to the situation and that his client is innocent and Zimmerman told his lawyer that "I plinked an african pigmie since he robbed a store and made trouble. I did justice" before making plans to pack up and leave the area for his personal safety.
