Yep, just trying to make them as miserable as possible.

Having his fat and extremely prole looking wife's mugshot all over TV will not help zimmermans public image problem either.

Hopefully the wife gets protective custody in jail.

The Judge had some harsh words for both Zimmermans. I hope they get convicted.

These people are going to wish they had done the right thing from the start and gone back to Peru once the lynch mobs drew out their long knives. Before they were charged, there was plenty of time to fly comfortably south and plant themselves where it would be impossible to serve them with summonses.

A little play on the local anti-Americanism and some leaked evidence in the local press and the government would not want the flak for extradition, leaving them safe from both government and mob violence.

It's not tenable to live as an ordinary middle class citizen in a banana republic where the chief executive has a personal vendetta against you. The US legal system is well know to be at least as degraded as any banana republic's.

Please explain to me why almost all the false rape accusation the accuser never gets charged with perjury.
This is a very important trial for America just as the Duke Lax trial was when the government will stop at nothing to charge a citizen or citizens falsely we must all take note.

Agreed. They are out to ruin him. It certainly would benefit the prosecution if she were a convicted felon by the time she testifies for her husband, then the prosecution can throw that in her face as impeachment and make her out to look like a liar no matter what she testifies to.

Similarly, in the case against Casey Anthony, they made sure they had the fraudulent check cashing convictions before trial.

Id' bet the plea bargain offer has already been communicated to Zimmerman's lawyer: plead guilty (to manslaughter, or possibly assault and battery) and we'll let your wife go. Otherwise she's headed for the big house-- no self-defense plea for her!

This approach worked on Michael Milken.

@AngryBlackMan

Do you have any legitimate reason to feel they should be convicted? Would you feel the same way if Zimmerman was black and Martin was white?

MuayTyson: Please explain to me why almost all the false rape accusation the accuser never gets charged with perjury.

1) It is tough to prove that the rape didn't happen.

2) It is politically unpopular to do so.

DWL's wanting to be pals with BRA and do something, anything that they hope can stop a riot.

This post is really misleading. Most witnesses fudge some facts to make someone look innocent or guilty. Here, she just blatantly lows to the judge and took deliberate efforts to hide her husband's money in order to keep his bail low. This seems unusual and is very clearly wrong. One reason perjury is almost never charged is because it's hard to prove, but here the evidence seems pretty compelling. However bias people might be against George, if the article is accurate, his wife should be charged with perjury.

Welcome to leftist America where if you dare stand up for yourself against bullying and criminality you're the villain.

The black controls the media. The black controls government.

If Holder can get away with giving free guns to mexicans that kill US Border Patrol Agents - what's so surprising.

Government gets away with what society lets them get away with.

@SK
#2 Is far more compelling. It is because it is politically unpopular is exactly why they never do it. There are more than enough case where the woman admits they lied just like the current case of the high school football player who is now being given NFL try outs. He wore a wire she confessed and now he is free. I have not heard the latest but I do believe she is not being punished at least not at the level she should for taking away the prime years of a mans life.

I knew -and most of you probably knew- that Zimmerman had collected about $100K for his defense. We had no inside knowledge; we read about this development in the media. If we knew, it's reasonable to think that the prosecution and defense lawyers knew, as well as the judge, as everyone involved in this case must read news articles about the case. The Zimmermans had to have known that their account was openly discussed in the media, so how can they be accused of intentional deceit?

Also, isn't it likely that the Zimmerman's did not consider the donated funds personal assets, as they were held in a special account for his defense? I bet his legal bills have already exceeded $100K, so if I were Zimmerman I would think of myself as effectively broke.

George Zimmerman and his wife are not too bright.

The prosecutors have tapes of phone conversations where they are discussing the money and his passports. She moved $74,000 from his bank account to hers, then goes into court and says the family is broke and she has no idea how much money the website has raised. Another account I saw said she made the funds transfers using multiple transaction in the amount of $9990.00. This is illegal structuring of transfers to avoid reporting requirements, although I think this is federal crime, not state.

The murder case against him is weak and problematic, but it sounds like they have a strong case for perjury against her.

Personally, I have never heard of "probably cause," but you are the lawyer.

>Having his fat and extremely prole looking wife's mugshot all over TV will not help zimmermans public image problem either.

Actually, it was after seeing that mugshot that I really felt genuine sympathy for George. Talk about a guy who is plagued by misfortune.

Or maybe the judge wants to go out of his way to avoid even the possibility of being accused of "going soft" on Zimmerman in order to insulate him from criticism when Zimmerman walks free...

Say it with me, ginned up charges do not excuse perjury. It's a cliche: the coverup is what gets you. For tips on how to keep her cell neat and clean, she should call Martha Stewart.

2 Cents from the ruling Class:

“They are clearly guilty of not being wealthy!!!!
What other class related crimes must they be guilty of?
Signed I will never walk a mile in your shoes, Snobs uber alles”

Sigma, should all defendents' spouses be allowed to lie about their assets so as to obtain lower bail?

Your Zimmerman deification is really revealing you as somebody who has little to no regard for the rule of law. They're just "out to get him," in your moronic view. His lies and obfuscation be damned, he's the real victim, because... he says so.

You're defending a guy who is now both a known and really, really stupid liar. He thought he could hide assets from the state, obtain a low bail, and then use the money as a personal slush fund -- which was his purpose in setting up the account, as he did NOT consult or involve his lawyers at the time. He wanted to make a quick buck off of gullible, cheerleading conservatives like yourself, and he succeeded. He cashed in and then lied about it. How the hell could the state refuse to prosecute?

Would you have been okay with Bernie Madoff (or his wife) lying about his assets to avoid a low bail, after having transferred large sums?

This blatantly criminal behavior should be tipping you off to who Zimmerman really is, and how unaware he is of his own stupidity. He thinks he's smart, and that he had pulled a fast one over the judge, the same way he conned the beat cops who responded to the 911 call after he killed a kid.

You should seriously reconsider your unqualified support for him, otherwise your reputation will be further eroded as he is exposed for the stupid prole that he is. My god, you're now reduced to saying perjury is no big deal. Perhaps they only cover that at the top 14 law schools, huh?

Stop trying to relitigate past grievances you have against black people by blindly defending and living vicariously through a low-class moron who killed a black person in what he dubiously claims was self defense.

You can make all the same social, racial, and IQ critiques without handcuffing yourself to a moronic liar turned vigilante killer.

It's only deposits or withdrawls in cash of 10k or more that need to be reported by banks to the feds, not transfers between accounts.

Patrick--

George Zimmerman didn't lie about what was in their accounts from internet fund raising, he stayed shut about it, which as a defendant is his right to do.

Shellie Zimmerman arguably did lie, but it's not an open and shut matter. She said she didn't know how much was in them, which may have been true. Yes she resisted efforts by the prosecutor to get her to estimate the amount, but she didn't say anything like "hardly anything". She also said that GZ's brother would know how much and when asked said he could probably be reached by phone.

So I think it's less than open and shut that she's guilty of perjury.

GZ's claims of self defense are dubious at all but well supported by his injuries and the forensic evidence. There's absolutely no evidence which supports the black lynch mobs' claim that he was a racist vigilante.

Patrick, why you mad bro?

Fairness and the rule of law are gone. G O N E

Why should anyone think that Zim and his wife still have to play fair when they are being so blatantly abused?

Patrick is mad because he's a liberal and Zimmerman is a prole and liberals hate proles.

Zim took a prolonged, life threatening head-beating before he used his weapon; that he could have used from the start.
The longer Law Enforcement attempts to persecute him, the less trust and cooperation they can expect in the future from actual law-abiding citizens. You know, like when they might really need it.
These fools are trying to appease flash mobbers at the cost of turning their natural allies into permanent, furious, well armed enemies.
You Go Corey.

Now we found out that this overzealous, unethical witch-hunter, Angela Corey, doctored the transcript in filing charges against Zimmerman's wife in a clear attempt to pressure him into a plea bargain.

If an out-of-control prosecutor can use dirty tricks to take down the rich and powerful (Michael Milkin, Conrad Black, Tom Delay, Scooter Libby), what chance does an average black Hispanic dude like Zimmerman have.

This is what happens when left liberals take away sensible powers of the police and prosecutors (Miranda, exclusionary rule). The public responds by replace specific powers that made it easier to prosecute criminals with general powers that make it easier to prosecute anyone.

"The longer Law Enforcement attempts to persecute him, the less trust and cooperation"

Exactly. Every time some lunatic prosecutor goes after a clearly innocent person for PURELY POLITICAL reasons, the dictate NEVER EVER TALK TO THE POLICE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE INNOCENT gets driven home with more force.
