What's Happening In Your World
George Zimmerman, who is set to go on trial for the murder of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, was ordered by a judge on Tuesday to continue wearing his GPS tracking device. Judge Debra Nelson denied a request by Zimmerman’s attorney to have the device removed for safety reasons. Zimmerman shot and killed 17 year old  Trayvon Martin as Martin was walking to his father’s home after having purchased Skittles and Iced Tea at a convenience store. Zimmerman, a self-appointed neighborhood watchman, claimed that he shot Trayvon Martin in self-defense. Judge Nelson also refused to lower Zimmerman’s bond. “He doesn’t need to live under constraints that a previous court imposed,” Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara said prior to the ruling. “This is not a person who has missed court appearances. He wants to be here. He’s looking forward to an immunity hearing and a trial.” Mark O’Mara went further, seemingly trying to decide the case in the court of public opinion, holding up a picture of Zimmerman with a b****y nose and calling it  ”undeniable evidence of innocence.” Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda called O’Mara on the stunt, and concluded that Tuesday’s hearing wasn’t about Zimmerman’s security, but instead a ploy for publicity. “Isn’t the defendant safer if law enforcement knows exactly where he is?,” de la Rionda said. “If there are threats, why is he appearing on national television?”  Nelson heard both sides but refused to amend the previous judge’s bond conditions.
