A Florida judge ruled Thursday that George Zimmerman can be released from jail a second time on $1 million bond, saying he set the bail amount significantly higher because Zimmerman may have been hiding money as part of a plot to flee the country.
After the shooting Zimmerman waited for the police (that he called in the first place), and cooperated with them in their investigation. The released him without charges that night. The next day he further cooperated with the police by re-enacting his encounter in his neighborhood .
Later when the spurious charges of Murder were leveled against him, he turned himself over to law enforcement without protest, and then posted bond. When his bond was revoked, he again turned himself in, despite likely not being in the state of Florida at the time.
Sorry, but if George Zimmerman was a flight risk, he would have done it by now. Of course this case has become a media circus and a lynch mob…maybe he SHOULD have fled the country…
