George Zimmerman Raises $200K For Legal Defense

by at . Comments

George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer accused of murdering Trayvon Martin, has raised at least $200,000 online to fund his defense.

Donors contributed "just over $200,000" on a website to help pay for the defense of Zimmerman, who was released on bail earlier this week, his lawyer said.

Mark O'Mara added that the site, therealgeorgezimmerman (dot) com, has since been shut down for unknown reasons and Zimmerman remains in hiding.

George Zimmerman Free on Bail

Zimmerman is living in an undisclosed location as he awaits trial on charges of second-degree murder in the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

The killing, which took place as Martin walked unarmed through a gated community in the central Florida town of Sanford, has gained national attention.

Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty and says he killed Martin in self defense. In a stunning move, he apologized to Martin's family at his bail hearing.

The sensational case has prompted civil rights protests and a national debate over guns, self-defense laws, racial profiling and media bias in America.

O'Mara told CNN that he would inform the judge in the case of the funds he has raised on Friday. No date has been set for his official arraignment.

man, people need to start getting facts right..that is exactly why this has become such a big deal. People watch half of whats going on but don't stay tuned or don't get updated on the new facts but they go on to argue with false accusations. THEY HAVE PROVED HE DID NOT SAY "F**KING COON." He also didn't to plain out say he was black randomly, he was asked what Trayvon's race was. The media released the whole phone call, that is old news. No one deserves any of this, Trayvon did not deserve to die and George does not deserve all this race bullshit. Saying your going to start riots just shows how this worlds going to complete shit!

hahahaha sound a little paranoid to me linsanity. That is a tad bit creepy you took the time to read each comment, check times, then come to the conclusion that it just has to be the same person...if I were you I would have never said anything you sound like an absolute idiot!

@Linsanity! Chill, will ya? It's interesting how you've obviously been analyzing posts here it would seem in an attempt to put groups of posters together. Why? What do you care anyway? I think you're trying to come off self-righteous when in essence you may well be more than one person yourself and attempting to shake it up here for an argument. Most folks just post their feelings. Some tussle with each other. Others play games. They aren't hurting you or really involving you at all...so--what? You jealous you're not included in their little games?!? If not, I'd think you'd merely post your views and quietly move on.

I also posted today. No trashing to you, I've seen your posts before. Personally, I waited to comment because I was reading CNN first. I may have similiar opinions as others, it happens.

Conti: Good luck, keeping yourself entertained. Its pretty clear that most people already migrated. Those who havent, need to do so, fast. The only way to communicate to webmasters is to diminish the number of hits.

Zimmerman made it racist when he muttered "F__kin' Coons."
He committed 1st degree murder. He told Trayvon, "...you are
going to die tonight." Which is why the kid was yelling for help right up til the moment George shot him in cold blood. Remember, George tried to flip the script. His retired judge father probably advised him that the neighbors had heard the yells for help; and that someone might have also heard him telling Trayvon that he was going to kill him. So George told everyone that it was he who was calling for help. The father, during his tv interview said that Trayvon told his son, "you are going to die tonight." The father said this on national television. Like father, like son. Forensic analysis, has proven that the yells for help were not Zimmerman's voice. His trail of lies together with this fake bloody head photo recently released, indicates that George Zimmerman is not only a hot-headed murderer; he is a relentless liar.
