So they want him held with no bond or the $1 million requested by the prosecution even though there isn’t a shred of evidence to back up the second-degree murder charge? Watch the video. Zimmerman came across as very genuine in my opinion, he even requested to meet with the Martins before the hearing (they declined).
An attorney for the parents of Trayvon Martin said the family was shaken and upset by an apologetic statement given on the witness stand Friday morning by the man charged with killingtheir son.
Attorney Benjamin Crump said that father Tracy Martin was particularly upset that the defendant, George Zimmerman, was allowed to take the stand and make the statement.
“All throughout the hearing, Tracy Martin had tears in his eyes as he watched the killer of his son,” Crump said. “And it was devastating that he got to give a self-serving apology to help him get a bond. They were outraged about that.”
Crump said that the family had declined to meet with Zimmerman before the hearing.
Oddly, they made no mention of the new pictures that show Zimmerman’s head covered in blood.
