George Zimmerman has gained 105 pounds since killing Trayvon Martin

What’s Happened In The Trayvon Martin Case Since You Stopped Paying Attention


1. Zimmerman has spent over $300,000 in donations over the last year and is desperate for more funds to finance his defense. Zimmerman has “spent more than $125,000″ on living expenses — not including security — over the last year. His lawyer acknowledged that “Zimmerman’s personal spending may seem exorbitant.” Zimmerman is considering asking the court to declare him “indigent, meaning the public would have to pay for Zimmerman’s defense.” Zimmerman was also sued by a security company for unpaid bills.

2. The trial has been set for June 10. Zimmerman recently asked for a delay of the trial until November but a judge denied his request. Zimmerman’s lawyer says it is “physically impossible for us to be prepared” for trial at that time. A seperate proceeding, essentially a mini-trial, to determine whether Zimmerman is immune from prosecution due to Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, is scheduled for April 22.

3. New forensic analysis “casts doubt on Zimmerman’s timeline on the night he shot and killed the unarmed teen.” The analysis was done by “Michael Knox, a retired Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office detective and crime scene investigator.” According to Knox, “based on the times and distances Zimmerman said he covered, Zimmerman would have still been on the phone with Sanford police when he claims he was attacked by Martin.” Knox says that other aspects of Zimmerman’s story, like the claim Martin was leaning over him at the time the shot was fired, are supported by forensic evidence.

4. Zimmerman has gained 105 pounds.

1. I was wintering in Florida when Martin was killed

I was so upset...and so upset that my very "nice" condo neighbors made fun of Martin and rooted for zimmerman...

I knew it was time to get out of Florida...It no longer had the appeal to me.

Especially when my BF brother's girl friend who lives in a detached beautiful new home in a gated community told me she didn't believe Obama was born in the USA.

Oh gosh.....I knew I was not in my kind of people place.

5. Florida is such an odd place. The 'Red' sections are REALLY Red and the Blue Sections are REALLY

blue, and then there is the swing section, the I-4 corridor where you can flip a coin with each person you meet.

7. He's determined to keep all those online donations all for himself, isn't he?

Murdering Trayvon turned out to be very lucrative for him. And now he doesn't have any money to pay his legal bills. How perverse is this?

10. Perverse

would be the taxpayers having to pay for his defense if he is declared indigent.

16. That would be icing on the cake.

Zimmerman's spent more money this year than he's probably seen in the rest of his lifetime. His murderous act turned into a financial bonanza for him. If that's not the definition of perverse, I need a new dictionary.

18. Would a judge really

declare someone who spent $300K in the last year indigent?

13. Just when I thought he couldn't be any guiltier

he goes and gets fat. Thanks for bringing his new corpulence to our collective attention; a new dimension has been added to his guilt, no pun intended.

15. Back to his fine 2005 assault and battery form, I see.



I just wonder if this wasn't somehow planned by his defense attorneys.

If they are arguing that he and Trayvon got into a physical altercation, what image would one want to present if one wanted to claim that deadly force via firearm was necessary? Someone who was physically fit? Or someone who was out of shape and outmatched by the younger Martin?

22. I put quote marks around "RKBA enthusiasts" because I believe that phrase is a code word for

an ideology and movement that is much, much uglier. My sig line really explains it best.

...racist, sexist, homophobic white supremacists?

Wow. Interesting. Good to know.

20. Some people drown their guilt with alcohol, it

would appear he's going to eat his away. At this rate he may explode by the trial date.

Edited for typo
