NBC News just reported that Zimmerman collected 200K on his website!

And he failed to let the judge know in court before bond was set.

2. He's clearly lied to the court about being indigent

explains all that extra cash for doritos and candybars from the jail store.

4. I say that is a lie like so many other lies about the murderer has been

In my experience Lawyers are known to perpetrate whatever they think might help his/her case, truth be damned.

13. Well since it was Zimmerman's Paypal account and he spent $50k of it already

I'm guessing he's known for awhile.

15. Either that or someone is in deep doo doo for impersonating him

To get a Paypal account, you have to give account numbers and permission and a few other tacky details. Like creating a website, it's very "trackable". To take said funds out requires same. This is an easy one. He'll have to plead insanity (which I've been awaiting) or a complicit other person to pretend he didn't understand when he set up a website, requested funds, put them into account and spent them. $50,000 is significant.

Murder/SYG/Self defense? Not so much.

11. The judge better revoke the bail and have him remanded in gen pop in jail.

 

That's the punishment that fits the violation of the bail.

14. The local news also said that his job paid $100K and he had still been collecting salary

 

on leave.

That surprised me first because I was surprised he made that much (doing what?) & second because his boss was still paying the salary.

I should say I heard this from another room, not watching the report directly, so don't know the details, may have misheard. But the salary detail I'd swear i heard right.
