Brows, you have a point about not being a danger to society, but, a flight risk ? ahh.. Maybe.
You know this judge cannot take that chance. Remember, this judge is under a lot of pressure in this case. What if Zimmerman actually did fly the coop ? The black radical activists could cause an uproar, which could result in riots in every city across this great country. Ala, Rodney King riots.
Moreover, Zimmerman has shown he is a guy that does not like to follow directions. He was told to turn over his passport, he did, but, not both. He certainly knew that the judge wanted both of them when his wife reminded him about the other. And secondly, during the 911 call he was told not to continue the pursuit by the operator, what did he do ? Kept right on chasing Martin, with a weapon.
And, as I mentioned earlier, Zimmerman will be found guilty of some count, he will not walk.
Our inner cities are in a continued recession, and ready to expode again. I think the Judge is quite aware of that.
