The photo above is of Trayvon Martin‘s memorial site. Earlier this year, he was shot on his way home from buying iced tea and skittles.
Around 2:50 ET Friday, George Zimmerman, the volunteer watchman accused of murdering Trayvon, was released from Florida’s Seminole County Jail after posting his $ 1M bond.
While the bail was originally set to be $ 150,000, the judge raised the price after realizing he failed to disclose the amount of donations he and his wife received from the public.
In the judge’s mind, if he’s forced to pay higher bail, the chances of him fleeing the country are slim to none. Makes sense to us! But still… knowing he’s walking free (for the time being) is pretty unsettling.
We were one of the first to discuss this horrible case, and our stomachs are still sick over it. It’s extremely important that justice is served here.
We hope the police keep a close eye on this guy…
