    After the riots I'm guessing 50 million.

    Bail is generally based on the severity of the crime and the risk the person is to flee. He was free for months and could've left the country and didn't, so I doubt he will flee now.

    Guys, if Zimmerman is acquitted, the state pay all the fees, including his attorney costs. On another thread, it was suggested that his attorney might pay for his bail. The attorneys ties to the NRA are well known. `nuff said...

    Ok...not sure what this has to do with the thread though. :)

    my biggest fear is the potus will use this for a rallying cry for re-election.

    Luckily he "fixed" the health care system despite( to spite) the constitution instead of the legal system so yes, several million $$$$ if the riots stay in Sanford. Coldie's numbers if it spreads to DC, NO and other racist cities.

    I'll guess less then a death penalty, and less then a conviction, and less then letting the thug live.

    This should prove to be interesting. As the crow flies I am only about a mile from the court house.
    I have upped my ammo supply, just incase.

    I don't think there will be riots. I BELIEVE the cry was for Zimmerman to get arrested and tried. This appears to be the direction things are heading so, in the end, justice for Trayvon should be served. Bearing in the mind that justice means getting one's due rewards and/or punishments. If Zimmerman is found not guilty or acquitted by a jury, then in this Country, justice has been served.

    I think he'll stay in jail long enough until a real white boy does something stupid, then he'll slip out the back door forgotten.

    If he is set free, its going to cost the state a boat load of money for additional riot gear.

    First they wanted him arrested.
    Then all they wanted was due process.
    Now they're mortified that he has been granted bail.

    Can't win for trying.
