George Zimmerman ARRESTED For Second Degree MURDER!

A Florida state prosecutor Angela Corey has charged George Zimmerman with second degree murder in the shooting of 17yr old Trayvon Martin, the Associated Press reports. He is already in custody. More details below………………


It has been over 40 days since Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon inside a Sanford, FL gated community.

Zimmerman has been missing since the night of the shooting and the case has subsequently become worldwide news, prompting activists, celebrities and even President Obama to speak out.

Yesterday Zimmerman’s lawyers withdrew from the case, citing their inability to contact Zimmerman.

Lawyers Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig expressed concern in a news conference about Zimmerman’s emotional and physical well being, claiming he has taken actions without consulting them.

According to reports, Zimmerman voluntarily surrendered himself to authorities, he has new council and he was out of the state of Florida.

Zimmerman’s new lawyer Mark O’Mara told CNN that his client turned himself into police.

Corey spoke with Sybrina Martin moments before she announced the charges against Zimmerman at a news conference in Jacksonville, FL. Corey told the room full of reporters:

“We have charged George Zimmerman charged with murder in the 2nd degree and he is in custody.”

Corey continued saying:

“We do not prosecute by public pressure or by petition. And it is the search for justice for Trayvon that has led us to this moment.”

Corey said she will not discuss evidence in the case, but says the standard is proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Right now, no bond is set on Zimmerman and prosecutors won’t disclose Zimmerman’s whereabouts for his safety.

    I feel for both of them. But this kid was no "innocent, good grades" type. He was repeatedly photographed throwing gang signs and dressed in gang attire. He was also on suspension from school for assaulting his bus driver. That, the bus driver, in itself makes it hard to believe that the kid wasn't the aggressor. Just my opinion though.

    Nor does this mean he is subject to die, either.

    We have the right to defend ourselves if someone comes at us. As far as I know from wht i have read Trayvon Martin did not attack George Zimmerman (of course George Zimmerman is saying that he was attacked but we will see if there is evidence of that). He was jsut in the wrong place at the wrong time. Kids nowadays wear hoodies so what. My sons whole high school then would look suspicious. Unless Trayvon Martin attacked George Zimmerman on the street or broke into his house there was no reason for George Zimmerman to take it upon himself to play "police". He should have gone back in his house and waited until the authorities got there. No matter what this kid did or didnt do in the past doesnt matter. What does matter what happened that night and that he was walking home through this area not causing problems. If he was breaking into houses and causing problems I would feel sorry for him still BUT it would definately change things. George Zimmerman called 911 and simply said this kid looked suspicious. You cant shoot someone simply because they look suspicious.
