The Trayvon Martin story continues to makes headlines across the nation as the special prosecutor appointed to the case has decided not to convene a grand jury.
In other shocking news, George Zimmerman is now taking donations to help aid in his “defense.”
More after the jump.
After the killing of Trayvon Martin almost two months ago, there are now new developments where shooter George Zimmerman is concerned.
Here something that shocked the world. The special prosecutor investigating the shooting decided AGAINST putting together a grand jury to seek an indictment against George Zimmerman. This means George CANNOT be charged with first-degree murder.
The special prosecutor who’s assigned to the case, Angela Corey had this to say.
“The state must go forward and be able to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt,”
This doesn’t mean Zimmerman won’t be charged with anything at some point. It’s still a disheartening turn of events.
This dude is a character. George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin, started a website last night (which crashed within minutes) where he is soliciting donations. Here’s the statement he released for the first time via his site.
“As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website’s sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries.”
Zimmerman is digging a huge hole to his issues. The lawyers who represented the stone cold killer are no longer representing him. They mentioned in a press conference Zimmerman never returned their calls or texts.
This is getting crazier and crazier! We’ll keep you posted.
