George Zimmerman Receives Bond

George Zimmerman is granted bond at 150k for the 2nd degree murder charge of Trayvon Martin.  According the judge Zimmerman must wear a GPS tracking device, is on curfew between 7am and 7pm and cannot use alcohol, drugs or be around guns. Zimmerman took the stand today to apologize to Trayvon’s parents. He said he didn’t know he was that young, as to indicate if he was older it would be more of a justified killing. Also brought up in the hearing is Zimmerman’s previous violence acts like attacking a police officer and his former girlfriend. Zimmerman will not be released today and it has not been determined if he can leave the state yet.

To Err is Divine?

Sabrina Fulton has the entire country on her side after her precious son Trayvon Martin was murdered by George Zimmerman but comments she made while still giving interviews have cause an uproar. Sabrina doing an interview on the Today Show said the shooting was an “accident” twitter and social media erupted. While I understand trying to do the good “Christ like” think Sabrina and her family need to allow the law enforcement to do their jobs and convict George Zimmerman. This is also proof the family needs to stop doing interviews, return to Florida and get ready for trial. George Zimmerman appeared in court for the first time yesterday to face the charges of 2nd degree murder. He pled not guilty and his arraignment is set for May 29. Tell me what you think about Sabrina’s gaffe, do you think it was an honest mistake or just proof the family needs to stop doing interviews? Let us know in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

George Zimmerman to be Charged

According to multiple sources George Zimmerman will be charged in the Trayvon Martin case today. The special prosecutor will not confirm the charges but will hold a press conference at 6pm. While we know Zimmerman will not be charged with first degree murder, the grand jury wasn’t needed, we do know he can be charged with second degree all the way down to manslaughter. I am extremely happen Ms. Fulton will be getting justice for her baby but I am upset the nation had to weep, march and wear hoodies to get to this point.

Disappearing Acts

George Zimmerman has been dropped by his attorneys after not listening to their advise. His attorneys say they have not been in contact with him since Sunday, he did a Sean Hannity interview against their advice and calling the Special Prosecutor himself without his legal team. It is not surprising that Zimmerman is not listening considering he didn’t listen when the police told him not to follow Trayvon which resulted in the child’s death. On Monday the Special Prosecutor announced she would not use a Grand Jury to help with the case which the legal eagles on TV interpreted that he would not be charged with first degree murder but would most likely be charged. The legal team for Trayvon’s family said they were “hopeful” this development meant Zimmerman would be charged and they were not surprise by the prosecutors moves. The Special Prosecutor confirmed an announcement on the case would be made in 72-hours. We are hoping for the best, read more on the case here:http://news.yahoo.com/prosecutor-plans-announcement-george-zimmermans-legal-team-calls-200512016–abc-news-topstories.html

Justice for Trayvon today?

According to Star Jones twitter they are keeping up with the Trayvon Martin case today because a decision to arrest Zimmerman may come today. While the process has been lengthily an arrest would definitely be welcomed. Many polls have shown that this case has the country split among racial lines similar to those in during the OJ Simpson case in 1995. For some odd reason a 17-year-old boy on his way back to his father’s home in a hoodie had to be to doing something wrong. Trayvon has been all but considered responsible for his own death for well walking down the street in a hoodie. It is not surprising though as case like this one , the Sean Bell case, and the recent conviction by New Orleans police shooting down Katrina victims , shoot first ask questions last has been the creed on people of color for years.  When this behavior gets questioned you get the typical response of , “Why are you not mad about Black on Black crime?” This delusional thinking comes from the same people who ask our President for his birth certificate every other month. We are asking for the arrest of George Zimmerman and a trial for the murder of Trayvon Martin. Do you truly believe there is not enough evidence for an arrest?

Grace Under Fire

While Toure and Piers Morgan compared sizes on CNN , Tracy Martin and Trayvon’s mother Sybrina Fulton appeared on Fox News to face Geraldo Rivera. Rivera loudly accused Trayvon’s parents of contributing to his murder by allowing him to wear a hoodie. Rivera apologized to the parents and they accepted on air. Trayvon’s Dad went on to let people know Trayvon had a hoodie on because it was raining and reinforced this was noted in the infamous 911 call Zimmerman made. The imminent arrest of Zimmerman falls on new evidence that the voice screaming in the 911 call was not Zimmerman but victim Trayvon. This account backs up the story the two witness have told in various reports that the screaming stopped when the gun fired. Florida is under more pressure to arrest Zimmerman as former President Bill Clinton and former Governor Jeb Bush both are blasting the case and calling for Zimmerman’s arrest. Slowly but surely justice is coming for Trayvon.

An Unfinished Life

As then country is enthralled with the tragic death of Trayvon Martin another one is going unnoticed. The murder of 32-year-old Shaima Alawadi, an Iraqi born mother of 5. Alawadi was born in Iraq and came to the US after Iraq failed to overthrow Saddam Hussien during the first Gulf War. She lived in Michigan before she moved to California before meeting her demise . Alawadi was bludgeoned and left with a note informing her to go back to her country terrorist. Alawadi was laid to rest in her native Iraq as her family is asking the government for answers. This isn’t a good look for the US as the world is still reeling from the Afganistan massacre by an US Solider.

Unecessary Roughness

When Piers Morgan had Robert Zimmerman, Jr on his show many were critical on how Piers not being a journalist began to shine through. He didn’t ask the tough questions and it seemed more like a Fox News right-wing conversation a la Sara Palin then trying to find out how a teenage boy was murdered walking home. No one was louder than Pop Culture critic Toure and he and Piers had a spat back and forth on twitter. After taunting Piers convinced Toure to come on his show and the two acted liked to spoiled children arguing back and forth about their credentials and hurt feeling and none about the death of child. Journalism as we know it is dead, it’s unfortunate (I think about this a lot) but let’s stay focused at the task at hand. This isn’t about Toure or Piers it’s about a Florida family who will never see their child again and a man who still has not been arrested for murdering their child. Watch the pissing match below and tell us what you think in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

Checkmate

As the Stanford Police Department and Zimmerman supporters set out to ruin the character of a 17-year-old boy who was murdered, ABC News obtained a video of the night Zimmerman was briefly detained after murdering Trayvon Martin that blows the “self-defense” case out of the water. In the video George Zimmerman appears to be unharmed , his bald head shows no signs of bruises or bandages even though by his account his head was slammed against the concrete. Also Zimmerman does not appear to have a broken nose nor does his clothes appear to have any grass stains on them despite the fact that he was rolling in the grass with Martin. This comes on the heels that lead detective Chris Serino wanted to charge Zimmerman with Manslaughter however his efforts were shot down by the state attorney. Read more about the case here:http://abcnews.go.com/US/video/george-zimmerman-police-surveillance-16024475 and continue to demand justice for Trayvon.
