Just imagine what’s going to happen if he’s acquitted…
George Zimmerman was released on $150,000 bail late Sunday night in what the Associated Press called a “low-key event.” Threats of death from the Twitter lynch mob were anything but low-key.
Here’s a few stellar examples (Warning, poor language) (Another warning, even worse grammar):
Succinct and to the point for @TrizzyTroof_CA:
I would kill George Zimmerman
George Zimmerman Released From Jail 150,000 Bail! WTF! Nigga You Are About To Die, Start Writing Your Will! Justices Has Not Been Served
@Stallionnett101 offered this ingenius insight:
Once u been convicted of a crime & let out on bail u can’t be charged 2x for the same thing so that means sum1 gonna have to kill Zimmerman
That’s called double jeopardy dumba**, and charges aren’t dropped when you’re released on bail.
Incidentally, the Twitter user policy reads:
Violence and Threats: You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others.
I’m certain Twitter will do the right thing and pull those accounts. Right around the twelfth of never.

Ironically, the image (seen below) was released by ABC News, the same group who hastily released video that allegedly showed no marks on Zimmerman’s head – that is, until conservative bloggers enhanced the video to demonstrate otherwise.
ABC News exclusively obtained a graphic photograph of George Zimmerman’s head covered in blood that was taken just three minutes after the shooting that left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead. This news comes as Zimmerman is set to go before a judge in a bond hearing on Friday. The picture shows two cuts on the back of Zimmerman’s head with blood trickling down.
Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Martin on February 26 in a gated Sanford community, claimed he killed Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Martin.
The photograph appears to be the first publicly disclosed piece of evidence that could help support Zimmerman’s claim of self-defense. Sources tell ABC News that investigators have seen the photograph and are aware of the photographer’s story.
Sadly, ABC is still trying to justify their shoddy journalism regarding the video, saying:
Zimmerman was treated at the scene, then transferred to the police station, where his wounds appear to be less visible in surveillance video.
He was treated and cleaned up at the scene, just as the Daily Caller and Breitbart.com were alleging was a possibility from the beginning.
Is there any doubt that new media has eclipsed the main stream media any longer?
50-Year-Old White Man Beaten Severely by Black Teens in Same Town as Trayvon Martin – Crickets Heard Chirping
Where, oh where, are the professional race-baiters now? Where is the national outcry?
Via Weasel Zippers:
The below story doesn’t mention the victim’s race but another local station’s newscast identifies him as white.
(Orlando Sentinel) — A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two men in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford.
Julius Ricardo Bender, 18, and Yahaziel Isaac Israel, 19, face charges of attempted first-degree murder, burglary with assault or battery and armed burglary.
The victim, a 50-year-old Winter Springs man whose name has not been released, is on life-support at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Deputies were called to the area of Lincoln Street and Beardall Avenue about 6:30 p.m. March 26 to investigate a report of a man being beaten, Seminole County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Heather Smith said.
They found the victim in the woods on the north side of Lincoln Street.
According to arrest affidavits:
A witness told deputies he heard someone screaming for help and saw two men pull the victim from his vehicle. He said he watched as one man held the victim and the other beat him in the head with a hammer.
After they dragged the victim into the woods, the men drove away in his sport utility vehicle, which was later found abandoned about a half-mile away on Garbo Jack Lane.
Divided States claims the attack happened at a very coincidental time:
A tip to Crimeline has led to the arrests of two black teens in a brutal beating that occurred a week ago in the Midway community east of Sanford, Florida, the same city as the Trayvon martin case on the same day when Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and New Black Panther’s leaders rallied to protest a tumped-up racial profiling case with Trayvon Martin.
Making that leap in judgment seems a bit premature, and would make any declaration that the race-baiters fueled this attack no better than the mainstream media. But let’s see how many news outlets actually report this case. I’m taking odds that it will be far less than the Martin case.
