Zimmerman released from jail, to be closely watched
Zimmerman posts bail gives no comments
Dressed in a brown jacket, jeans and carrying a brown paper bag, George Zimmerman left the Polk Correctional Facility moments after midnight on Monday. Zimmerman posted the $150,000 bail and fulfilled all the requirements set for his release in Fridays bail hearing. However Zimmerman, who is charged with second degree murder in the killing of unarmed Trayvon Martin, refused to talk with the reporters outside the correction facility as he left in a white BMW sports utility.
Martin’s family respects court’s decision
The family of Trayvon Martin has accepted the court’s decision according to their lawyer Attorney Daryl Parks, however he did say they were devastated to know that the killer of their son would be able to roam around in the streets. “It’s with a very, very heavy heart that they’ve seen him walk freely late last night back into the public,” he said in an interview on CNN.
Officials have said that Zimmerman will be closely watched while he is out on bail and will be tracked wherever he goes using GPS. However they did confirm that it would most likely be somewhere outside of Florida as anger is still very much prevalent in his home state. The officials also confirmed by leaving jail he had forsaken the protection the police was providing him and now his security is his own responsibility.
