    Is Judge Lester’s Granting of Bail Again to Zimmerman Politically Motivated?


    Why would Judge Lester grant bail to Zimmerman again on July 5, 2012, after his own court order supports denying that action? I believe that Judge Lester granting of bail again to George Zimmerman politically and possibly racially motivated. Many in this country are fanning the racial divide by using the murder of an unarmed African-American seventeen year old boy as their weapon of choice. Their efforts are meant to distract and discourage President Obama's supporters during the 2012 presidential election.

    I also believe that Judge Lester like the Sanford Police Department mishandled the Trayvon Martin murder case. Judge Lester’s discussion that downplayed Zimmerman’s two prior criminal encounters with the law,granting bail at $100,000 from the bench immediately after the first bail hearing and his latest decision to grant bail again in this case supports my belief. Lester should recuse himself from this case and/or the United States Justice Department should charge Zimmerman if there is evidence to support a conviction that Zimmerman violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights.

    Preview of my book “Screwed by Former Governor and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer” reveals the early years of my racial poverty stricken life in Florida.

    Preview additionally pages of book to view the perjured declarations of Eliot Spitzer and Lee Gould and direct evidence that proved that fact.
