    ... due to his lying in court about his financial resources apparently.

    It is really bad luck to lie to a judge.

    Especially after you just shot a kid who was unarmed.

    Always best not to press your luck.

    Looks like the judge is really peeved now.

    Just like about half the nation is too.

    I can't believe they are revoking bail almost as much as I can't believe the charges haven't been dropped yet.

    Bail should not be set in consideration for how much money you have anyways. This is a continuation of the witch hunt the race baiters and media have pushed and nothing else.

    The Romans had a great way to deal with prosecutors who lost their cases.

    A losing prosecutor could have a large "K" branded on their forehead.

    This stood for "Kalumniator" which means false accuser!

    " Sergeant Altarr Williams, supervisor of Miami police’s Homicide Unit, said a man doesn’t have to be armed to be dangerous.

    “There are other ways to injure people,’’ Williams said. “Some people know martial arts, others are very strong and can kill you with their hands.’"

    Just saying...from another recent story in Florida.

    Half the nation? Lol, If 2 million people side with TM, that would put them at 0.006% of the nation. The majority of people I have spoken with, and have heard talking, in the great NW (Oregon/Washington) are waiting for the trial, but hold Zimmerman on the side of innocence. A very small percentage of people are in an uproar, or side with Martin. It just so happens, the loudest tantrum throwers for TM make the news.

    Haven't researched too much of this latest episode of "Working on the Railroad" but...

    From what I understand, the judge is allegedly pissed about nondisclosure of the 200K Zimmerman had in a Paypal account. That money is supposedly from public donation for his defense fund. As far as I am concerned, that money belongs to his legal team, not Zimmerman personally. If this is the case, the judge is wrong. We already have government telling us how to spend our money, now what? Judges are going to tell us how we are to spend money that was donated for a specific purpose for something other than that specific purpose?

    Something isn't right with this. That account was common knowledge before the bail hearing. Sounds to me like someone got to this judge. This stunt right here should be grounds for change of venue. This is just another step in a "railroad job". I can hear it now... "Mr Zimmerman, since you lied to the judge in your bail hearing, you must be lying about everything."

"Mr Zimmerman, since you lied to the judge in your bail hearing, you must be lying about everything."
    As I understand it, Zimmerman's lawyer reported the amount of the account very shortly after the bail hearing out of an abundance of caution that it wouldn't be seen as something they purposely withheld. The account was the subject of several questions posed to Zimmerman's family members during the bail hearing. Whether it was a tactic to avoid being able to knowledgeably comment on the amount or not, they all said they didn't know what, if any, amount was in the account at the time, but you're right, the existence of the account was never in question.

    It's not that the judge decided to have Zimmerman come back to explain himself about that account and the 2nd passport that bugs me, it's the language he used in making the order that concerns me. He said that Zimmerman "lied" about it. That's a crime if true. A defendant has the right to face his accuser in court. If the accuser is also his judge who has already made that legal conclusion, yep, something is terribly wrong.

    Even without this new wrinkle, I think valid triggers for a change of venue is all over this case. The problem is, change to where? This guy has no chance of getting a "fair" trial anywhere in this country at this point, so polluted is the jury pool in the whole nation. I'm not positive, but I don't think there's any legal mechanism for it to be taken out of FL anyway, without it becoming a federal case, and that's the last thing that would help Zimmerman get a fair trial with Holder or any of his lackeys at the helm of the prosecution.

    Really?!? Well, let's see. Let's say I have $2 million in the bank. And let's say that Joe Schmoe has $10 in the bank. We are both facing murder charges. So, you REALLY, REALLY think our bail should be set equally? Let's say bail is set at $500,000, the purpose of which is to guarantee that the defendant will return to court. I pay my $500,000 in cash to the court and head to Brazil. Does Joe Schmoe have that opportunity?

    Now, let's say Joe Schmoe, in consideration of his $10 in the bank, bail is set at $200,000. That allows Joe Schmoe to hire a bail bondsman and raise bail, with the bondsman knowing there isn't much chance of Joe Schmoe skipping bail. Judge sets my bail at $2,200,000.00. Bondsman makes me pay him $2 million, he covers the rest of the $200,000, knowing there isn't much chance of me skipping bail now.

    Bail is not about the charges - it's about ensuring the person will return for their court trial, and that MUST be based on the assets of the defendant.

    Zimmerman messed up, AGAIN, by him AND his wife lying to the Court. He is incredibly stupid, if nothing else.
