UPDATE: George Zimmerman SPEAKS & SOLICITS Donations, Florida Special Prosecutor Decides AGAINST Grand Jury
The killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin continues to makes headlines across the nation as the special prosecutor appointed to the case has decided not to convene a grand jury. And in other shocking news, the shooter, George Zimmerman, is now taking donations to help aid in his "defense." Get the deets inside.....
After the killing of Trayvon Martin almost two months ago, there are now new developments where shooter George Zimmerman is concerned.
In a shocking move that raised many eyebrows, the special prosecutor investigating the shooting decided AGAINST putting together a grand jury to seek an indictment against George Zimmerman. As a result, it means George CANNOT be charged with first-degree murder. "The state must go forward and be able to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt," said Angela Corey, the special prosecutor assigned to the case.
This doesn't mean Zimmerman won't be charged with anything at some point. It's still a disheartening turn of events.
Meanwhile, George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin, started a website last night (which crashed within minutes) where he is soliciting donations. He said in a statement for the first time via his site,
“As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website's sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries."
Interesting that there are actually people out there who are going to send this man their money. And the audacity of this man to talk about his inconveniences after shooting an unarmed boy several times. It just gets more disgusting as things develop.
UPDATE: George Zimmerman's lawyers have announced that they are NO LONGER representing him because he has cut off contact with them and has been making his own decisions.
