    I'm glad he's out.

    That's at least $15,000 penalty money he or his family is out that they'll never see again.

    Not so, if he does not break bail and flee they will get the money back when the trial starts........

    I have no position on this case and I'm amazed at all the opinions people have considering that it's a complex case. I don't personally approve of amateur police-work and this is a classic example of why I don't but the guilt/innocence/intention thingy should be laid out at trial instead of the media.

    I do think the bail was excessive and deliberately punitive and it pisses me off that they do this. There is no flight risk and no matter what, he should be released O.R. until the case is settled. The police use bail as a method of fining you, regardless of future determination. It's just plain wrong. He's shown good faith as far as court appearances go and that is supposed to be the purpose of bail.

    I repeat - I HAVE NO POSITION ON GUILT OR INNOCENCE IN THIS CASE. It's a real American tragedy no matter what the final outcome is. It's one of many reasons I don't own a gun - guns make you a little too brave for your own good.

    Unfortunately, bail bondsmen charge 10%. That is a fact I wish I didn't know. Sigh.

    Even if the case is thrown out, the 15k (10% 0f 150k) is gone. Adios forever

    Initially, the state was shooting for a cool million. Imagine that....100k down the ****ter

    I was glad to see him get a bail set by the judge as that he is still considered innocent. I hope that the judge will kick the cameras out of the court room and that any trial is not long and drawn out, whether they find him guilty or not.

    I seriously doubt he was able to post the full amount, the Bail Bondsman fee is 10% he won't get that back.

    Any rational person with an interest in justice should be concerned about a "high-tech lynching" (to steal a term from Clarence Thomas) occurring here.

    As much as I am convinced that Zimmerman does not qualify for SYG immunity and deserved to be charged, I do want him to have a fair trial. It has been an absolute disgrace the way that the left-leaning media has reported with such intentional and insidious bias about this case. Regardless of his culpability, I hope Zimmerman sues the pants off of these unethical and irresponsible news media outlets.
    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    It is more than the left that want to "lynch" this guy.... You got the anti-gun crowd, the race exploiters, the New Black Panther Party, Spike Lee, the left, the progressives, subjective opinion & the media ! I bet their are more but you get the idea their most likely will be injustice done before this is over !
    The question is more important than the answer!
