George Zimmerman will be charged with second degree murder in Trayvon Martin case
George Zimmerman has NOT flown the coop! The neighborhood watch volunteer is being formally charged by Florida Prosecutor Angela Corey with second degree murder for the killing of unarmed black Florida teen, Trayvon Martin.
Earlier this week, his lawyers announced that they are no longer representing him because he is impossible to contact and rebuffs their legal advice! And that was after they found out he placed an off-the-record phone call to Fox News' Sean Hannity, who confirmed the call, but little else, on his show Tuesday night. So what is really going on?
Well, Zimmerman's former lawyers said that he is in the United States, but not in Florida--but now he has been taken into custody pending the case against him.
State Attorney Angela Corey revealed just moments ago that she was going to charge Zimmerman for Martin's death.

Uhrig proclaimed earlier that his former client had left the state of Florida because he was "not doing well emotionally" and "he may not be in complete control of what's going on." In fact, he's under so much stress that his lawyers say he's losing weight and can't even perform a task as simple as going to a grocery store.
Wait, wait, wait--Zimmerman isn't doing well emotionally? What about Martin's family who has had to deal with the killing of their son as well as harsh public scrutiny? How can he complain about not being able to go to the grocery store when Martin will never be able to do anything, ever again, because of him? And why are his lawyers still trying to play the sympathy card if they've quit his case? The whole thing just makes me feel sick with disgust.

But now, justice has FINALLY been served. I literally want to cry with relief hearing that at last, he's being held accountable for his shady actions on the night he killed Martin. Martin supporters and his family can now, at the very least, take some comfort in knowing that that Zimmerman will be punished for his crime.
