OMara did not return repeated messages seeking clarification.
George, Ill be donating monthly, Facebook user Annette Elaine Kelly of Ontario posted on the Facebook page OMara set up for the case. I hope that you have been truthful (I believe you have) and that people will give you a fair hearing. Take care.
One post that has since been removed from the page asked why people supported Zimmerman. Many people commenting on the site believe the controversial neighborhood watch volunteer was railroaded by the media.
Fantastic. I have donated, a second time. ($50 the first time, $25 today). I plan on donating small amounts, but weekly, so George is reminded that we are still here, and we still care, San Francisco attorney Michael Mortimer wrote. I see where it fully discloses where my donations can go. Given George and his family need living expenses, I am glad to help provide for personal costs, and to pay legal expenses.
The judge handling Zimmermans case asked for more information about his fundraising, to determine whether his family misled the court at his bail hearing last month. OMara presented the family as indigent, and Zimmerman did not speak up to reveal the money he had collected. When the fundraising became known, the prosecution asked that Zimmermans $150,000 bail be increased, but he did not follow up the oral request with a formal written motion.
News of Zimmermans tally shocked Trayvon supporters, who believe Zimmerman should lose bail for misleading the court.
The guy is living paycheck to paycheck, he kills a teenager and all of a sudden, hes got $200,000? said Sanford minister H.D. Rucker. What does that say about our society? There are racists out there.
Attorney Crump said hes puzzled.
I look at those donations, and I scratch my head, Crump said. I ask myself: What cause is it exactly that they are contributing to?
