    Outraged that Zimmerman was Granted Bail of $150,000

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     verichards8 says when she heard the judge set bail for George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing teenager Trayvon Martin, she was shocked. One of the reasons she was shocked about the decision was because the judge made it right away. She also believes the bail was set relatively low considering that the public does not know how much Zimmerman's parents' home is valued at or how much the family has saved up. She also says that by granting him bail, Zimmerman becomes a flight risk. She thinks it would be better for Zimmerman to wait for trial in prison. 'If people are worried about his safety, wouldn't he be safer in prison?' she asks. She is worried that the judge’s decision to grant bail for Zimmerman might be a sign of how the trial will turn out. 'I think this case was mismanaged from the beginning for some reason. If Zimmerman is found guilty than more investigations will continue.'
