The prosecution never wants to set bail and the defense always wants the defendant to be released on his/her own recog, Lying *t.

That is how it works in the USA.

And the judge looks at the numbers and makes a judgement on a figure he/she feels will ensure the defendant will show up again.

Watch any Law & Order episode - it's been running in one way or another every week for twenty years or so.

As I clearly stated the judge issued a bail that would require Zimmerman to come up with 15 thousand cash, a paltry amount.
10% of 150k = 15k which is significantly lower then the 1 million dollar amount the prosecution wanted at the very least.
The prosecution did not want bail to be given at all but they looked like fools at the hearing and could no substantiate any of the claims in their probable cause affidavit with evidence, lol
The lead detective, the one whose signature was on the affidavit even admitted under oath that he did not write the affidavit of probable cause and could not explain the choice of wording and the evidence to back it up, lol
Legal experts have called the prosecutions affidavit "criminal" in its self and said Corey should be shopping for her own defence attorney after viewing the bail hearing.
Are you learning impaired? The cat that picked up GZ from the jail last weekend was a bail bondsman so save your BS for the other half dozen threads you haunt.

Do you think that the bail bondsman feels stupid? Or do you think he already knew GZ had plenty of money on hand?

Oh and BTW, defense is spelled with an "S" defence is not even a word.

Dummy!

The Martn's will be collecting money from the foundation...didn't you hear what the holy hater Rev. Al said about paying them? They are nt working but allowing themselves to be dragged around the country someone has to pay them...Martin has a new kid it deserves support...might be nice if he was aroud so the kid knows who he is..this kid is alive that takes precedent over the dead.
The Martin Foundation is being overseen by the Miami Foundation that is a long time and well established Foundation. I am sure their travel and accommodation expenses are covered. Why shouldn’t they be. The donors list is being made public. Is Zimmerman’s donors list going to be presented? Or doesn’t ALEC and the NRA want to public to know who is floating his bill?

Poor Lying *t: I don't pretend to pass off legal advise, I only note observe your complete and utter incompetence in this area and offer you advice on helping your very short shortcomings (since reading would be out of your realm).

Happy to prove what you post wrong, though.

Angela Corey's lead detective, the one she relied on to gather the evidence that is in the discovery file just testified under oath that:

O’MARA: My question was do you have any evidence to contradict or that conflicts with his contention given before he knew any of the evidence that would conflict with the fact that he stated I walked back to my car?

GILBREATH: No.

O’MARA: Any evidence that conflicts any eyewitnesses, anything that conflicts with the contention that Mr. Martin assaulted first?

GILBREATH: That contention that was given to us by him, other than filling in the figures being one following or chasing the other one, as to who threw the first blow, no.

Angela Corey's lead detective, the one she relied on to gather the evidence that is in the discovery file made it clear that they have no direct evidence to dispute Mr. Zimmerman.

All Angela Corey has is innuendo which makes it hard to convict a person beyond a reasonable doubt.

Remember Zimmerman's defence team does not have the burden to prove that everything he claims is correct they just have to show that the prosecutions case has holes in it, shouldn't be hard to do.

You have nothing so you have to resort to playing the "guilty by association" card. really? You're better than that.
OH MAN. I think a Con artist is pretending he is upset by the guilt by association argument. Now that is funny. Of course in this case it is Zimmerman's buddy, co captain, and pistol packing assistant watch organizer that you are trying to slough off by claiming it has no baring. Those two sound more like “if the one hand don’t get you the other one will”!!

Zimmerman's Lawsuit Against Al Sharpton, NBC, and the Martin Family Attorneys

The first claim is likely to be intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED).

To be successful, Zimmerman will have to show that conduct of Al Sharpton and NBC was so extreme and outrageous that it transcended all bounds of decency; that they acted with either the purpose to cause Zimmerman extreme emotional distress or acted with reckless disregard for Zimmerman's emotional well being, and that Al Sharpton and NBC caused him identifiable emotional damage.

Al Sharpton publically claimed that Trayvon Martin was murdered and that George Zimmerman should be arrested for the crime.

The ensuing civil unrest and threats of racial violence caused Zimmerman to go into hiding.

There is no doubt that crying racism and murder to a group of self-radicalized Black militants is beyond all bounds of decency.

Any White peron accused of killing an unarmed Black child because of racism would be terrified of the mob's reaction.

If Zimmerman has been treated by a physician for any kind of emotional trauma caused by Sharpton linking him to a murder that never occured, Sharpton's going to be held responsible.

Zimmerman's Lawsuit Against Al Sharpton and NBC

NBC will likely also be found liable to Zimmerman for IIED because a producuer who admittedly altered an audio recording to make it look like Zimmerman harbored racial prejudices against Blacks.

The result made all of America believe that George Zimmerman was the most wretched racist on the planet.

Again, this sort of behavior is wholly unacceptable in a society that values established due process and the search for the truth.

This act, combined with Sharpton's incessant race-baiting no doubt caused Zimmerman intense emotional pain.

Zimmerman's Lawsuit Against Al Sharpton and NBC

The common law elements of defamation are 1) a false statement, 2) about or concerning the plaintiff, 3) communicated to a third person, and 4) damage to the plaintiff's reputation.

While it's generally held that defamatory speech is slander and written communications are libel, where the speech is recorded and widely available, the proper claim is libel, which is held to be the more serious of the two as video recordings become permanent because they are ubiquitously reproduced and shared across the Internet via social networking.

Clearly, Al Sharpton repeatedly told people that Trayvon Martin was murdered by a racist and that George Zimmerman should be held responsible. As we are finding out, there was no racially motivated murder here. Sharpton's statements on MSNBC and at the numerous rallies he appeared at were patently false, and they were clearly about George Zimmerman.

The damage to George Zimmerman's reputation is grave. He's been branded a racist child murder by Sharpton. He had to quit his job and leave his community because of the damage done to his reputation.

While Sharpton's employer, NBC, would normally not be liable for Sharpton's intentional torts, they certainly could be held responsible for his behavior under a negligence theory.

If NBC knew, or should have known, that Sharpton's on-air race-baiting and vitriolic conjecture would lead to the destruction of George Zimmerman's reputation, and did nothing to prevent Sharpton from harming Zimmerman, NBC will also be looking at a negligence action.

An invasion of privacy claim will stand against NBC because of the altering of the audio tape.

The publication of the audio placing George Zimmerman in a false light that is offensive to a reasonable person under the circumstances, and satisfies the main elements of a false light invasion of privacy claim.

Because the producer has reportedly admitted to altering the audio to make the story seem like a hate crime, there will be little problem with establishing intent here.

Because this is a story of public interest, Zimmerman will have to show that it was done with malice.

What could be more malicious than deliberately portraying someone as a racist child killer without a shred of proof?

Poor Lying *t: since one American out of a couple hundred Americans even watch NBC News and certainly only a fraction of them saw this broadcast, it's a bit of a flying leap for you to say all of America thinks Zimmerman is a racist based on this one broadcast.

Especially since most of America thinks Zimmerman is a racist because he jumped out of his truck and confronted this boy because Zimmerman didn't like black folk walking through "his" neighborhood.
