Donations to Zimmerman Defense Fund Soar

George Zimmerman's attorney says that donations to a legal defense fund for the suspect facing a second-degree murder charge has increased almost twenty-fold since his $1 million bond was announced Thursday.

The site that regularly receives $1,000 per day got $20,000 since his new bail was set, writes the Orlando Sentinel. The Miami Herald says Zimmerman needs to pay $85,000 cash to get out of jail on bond. That number doesn't include the $15,000 he already spent on bondsman fees from his first release.

If Zimmerman does post bail, he'll be facing much more strict conditions after Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester suggested that the suspect previously had intentions to flee the country. As the Christian Science Monitor reports, Zimmerman has to stay in Seminole County, abide by a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, and be electronically monitored.

This is a sad situation! If this guy was black he would have never been given a second chance. After he intentionally defrauded the courts and still allowed bail WHAT???
