George Zimmerman Asking For More Time And Money [Again]

George Zimmerman asking for more time

Orlando, FL – George Zimmerman is trying to delay his trial again for what feels like the 100th time.

Lawyers representing Zimmerman, who is charged with murdering Florida teenager Trayvon Martin in cold blood, are again asking to delay his trial, reports MSN.

His attorneys filed a motion on Wednesday to delay the case once more, attempting to move the trial date from June to November. Zimmerman has entered a plea of “not guilty.” Attorney Mark O’Mara is also asking for more public donations to Zimmerman’s defense. The defense fund has raised more than $314,000 since he was charged, which is an awful lot of money for this trial to be going nowhere.

Zimmerman was most recently in the news for a security lawsuit which revealed a strange, almost fictional-sounding hideout plan.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the plan hatched by Associated Investigative Services Inc., bodyguards hired for Zimmerman, included a strange exit to a “tourist resort” complete with GPS tracking and a makeover.

“This was the plan to move George Zimmerman out of the Seminole County Jail and make him disappear: He would be outfitted in concealed body armor and driven away by an armed guard in a rental vehicle that had been checked to make sure no one had secretly placed a GPS tracking device on it … He would be whisked awayto a tourist resort, according to a recently-released “jail escort plan,” where he would then go into the handicapped stall of the men’s bathroom and change into a new shirt, hat and glasses.”

It seemed to be a plan to escape trial, but it never came to fruition. Zimmerman continues to be a controversial public figure, and his case continues to take dramatic, and often odd-ball twists and turns.

Do you think that the Zimmerman defense should be granted more time?

    George Zimmerman tried to DETAIN Trayvon Martin against his will before he shot him and that is exactly what started that confrontation between the two. In fact, when Zimmerman tried to detain Martin, Dee Dee, while she was on the phone with Martin, stated in her statement that she heard Martin say, "get off of me" which necessarily means that Martin apparently tried to resist Zimmerman's efforts to detain him against his will but Zimmerman continued to try to detain the boy and thereafter the fight ensued. In fact, after he shot Martin, Zimmerman plainly told a neighbor that came out with a flashlight, to help him "restrain" this guy which is exactly what Zimmerman tried to do before he shot the boy. It smacks of basic commonsense that someone who have just shot someone that they feared were about to kill them would then get up and try to "restrain" the very person that they thought were about to kill them. Any person in that circumstance would have gotten up and at a bare minimum immediately called the police to report what they had just done but Zimmerman didn't do that. Rather, he wanted to detain the boy until the police arrived because, after all, he told the call-taker during his non-emergency call that "These a**holes, they always get away". It is abundantly clear that Zimmerman is guilty of unlawfully killing Martin no matter how you look at this case, and a self-serving claim of self-defense, which has no less than a dozen different and inconsistent versions far from the truth, has no place in this case because plainly Zimmerman initiated that confrontation from the moment he got out of his vehicle to pursue Martin to the point he tried to detain the boy against his will.

    If George Zimmerman had of listened to authorities. Do not go near. Stay away. It would not have happened. He did the opposite and shot the little boy in a cold blooded murder. He wanted to shoot him and he did. Written by an 80 year old white lady. G z deserves what ever he gets
