Robert Zimmerman Jr. tweeted an update yesterday, the defense fund brought in $32,000 so far. 25% of the goal. Awesome job everyone! IIRC, on April 12th, 2012, GZ’s appeal for donations resulted in $72,000 for that day. Let’s repeat that so we can focus on the facts again. Donations are needed. Even $5 helps. Please give if you can and use your voice to ask others to help. For those who are able, please make a donation to the defense fund. Thank you for helping.
A team of civil lawyers and a slick PR firm lied to the public and put pressure on the police force of Sanford to bring charges where the evidence was showing no charges should be brought. The public pressure worked and the local State attorney, Norm Wolfinger, agreed to seat a Grand Jury to decide if the evidence warranted charges. He publicly stated the Grand Jury would meet on April 10th. But there was a problem.
Witness 8 wasn’t cooperating. Governor Scott (pictured above) sought out a prosecutor in the State of Florida that would “play ball”, bring charges, even if they weren’t warranted and get a plea deal and make all this just go away. He assigned Angela Corey’s office the task. On April 11th, she held her news conference and well, the probable cause affidavit speaks for itself when you go through the discovery.
Please continue to spread the word and appeal for donations. Let’s send a message that it’s not ok to subvert the rule of law in any county for any reason. Help George Zimmerman fight back. In doing so, you will be helping every defendant that comes after him to ensure they get fair trials.
For newcomers, please know that racist remarks will be trashed. If you are presenting yourself as a George Zimmerman supporter, please keep in mind this man is in a fight for his life. Conduct yourself in a way that won’t bring heartache and/or embarrassment to the Zimmerman family.
