- Discussion about George Zimmerman’s arrest for domestic violence against his girlfriend.
George Zimmerman walked out of jail today after agreeing to give up his guns and wear an electronic monitor.
Zimmerman, who had been acquitted earlier this year of murder in the death teenager Trayvon Martin, had posted a $9,000 bond for his release.
In addition to giving up his guns and wearing a monitor, Zimmerman was told he must stay away from his girlfriend.
Earlier in the day, Zimmerman stood expressionless as the judge explained that there is probable cause in his case and a bead of sweat trickled down his face as the judge explained the conditions for his release.
The state attorney said that the victim, identified by police as Zimmerman’s girlfriend Samantha Scheibe, said there was a prior domestic violence incident a week-and-a-half ago that involved “a choking.”
The victim also said that Zimmerman has threatened to commit suicide, saying he “had nothing to lose,” the state attorney said.
“She is in fear for her safety,” the state attorney said of the victim. The victim asked for “no contact and no return.”
His arraignment will be Jan. 7, 2014.
Jeff Dowdy, chief of Seminole County Public Defender’s Office, is Zimmerman’s new attorney. In a news conference after the hearing, he told reporters it was “too early to say if it’s a meltdown but we’ll find out.”
Assistant public defender Daniel Megaro said he was “confident” Zimmerman will be acquitted. He said the allegation that Zimmerman has been suicidal was “news to us.”
He also said that Zimmerman has maintained his innocence.
“Of course he’s sorry for what happened, but he’s maintaining his innocence,” the attorney said.
They attorneys said they did not see anything in Zimmerman’s behavior that caused any immediate concern for his safety or that he would be a danger to anybody else.
Before the hearing, Dowdy told reporters that Zimmerman is “indigent” and about $2.5 million in debt.
When asked how Zimmerman was doing after a night in jail, Dowdy said, “He’s upset. He’s calm, but he’s upset. He wants to go home.”
Zimmerman, 30, was arrested Monday after a “domestic disturbance” with his girlfriend. He now faces a felony charge of aggravated assault and the lesser charges of battery domestic violence and criminal mischief.
Zimmerman’s girlfriend, who the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office identified as Samantha Scheibe, told a 911 dispatcher that the incident began when the former neighborhood watch captain grew upset during an argument and brandished a weapon at her.
- Discussion about racist foolishness within the International criminal Court.
The UN Security Council has rejected an attempt to suspend the trials of Kenya’s president and vice-president at the International Criminal Court (ICC).
A resolution had been proposed by African states to suspend the trial of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto for a year.
Eight of the 15 council members abstained and the motion did not pass.
Both men face charges over violence following the disputed 2007 election, which left some 1,200 people dead.
The resolution was proposed by Rwanda and seven members of the Security Council – including Russia and China – voted in favour.
However, nine votes are needed for a resolution to be successful at the council.
The resolution had been widely expected to fail, the BBC’s Nick Bryant reports from the UN in New York.
