George Zimmerman Released on Bail
He's taking no chances. George Zimmerman had a bulletproof vest under his jacket as he walked out of jail early Monday morning.
Just like when Zimmerman left the courtroom after being granted bail Friday, the outline of the vest could be made out as he climbed into a car. Zimmerman was being taken to a top-secret location.
His lawyer, Mark O'Mara spoke of their fears on CBS This Morning.
"The concern is that there is a sort of groundswelling of opposition to Mr. Zimmerman's position, or what they believe his position to be, that we're concerned about it, and I think legitimately so," said O'Mara.
Zimmerman's release is sparking a barrage of death threats from what one website calls a "Twitter lynch mob."
Meanwhile, a friend of Zimmerman's, fellow neighborhood watch volunteer Frank Taaffe showed Fox News how he thinks his buddy was assaulted by Trayvon Martin.
But Ben Crump, the attorney for Trayvon's parents is coming out swinging.
"If this is any indication of what's to come, then the lying has already begun," said Crump.
Ben Crump is blasting suggestions that the new photo of Zimmerman's head injuries bolsters his defense.
Crump said, "You see the two cuts in his head, that is not consistent with your head being pounded into the pavement. Objective evidence, evidence we can see and touch is more important than anything George Zimmerman says because we have to remember, Trayvon Martin is not here to tell us his version of what happened."
