← return to Water Cooler

It did not take long for death threats to arise on Twitter against George Zimmerman, his family, lawyer, and Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester, who allowed Zimmerman to be released on $150,000 bond. Mr. Zimmerman is charged with second degree murder for the February 26 killing of seventeen year old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman is claiming self-defense.

After being fitted with a GPS monitoring device, Mr. Zimmerman left the Seminole County Jail in Sanford at midnight Monday morning. Below are examples of death threats being tweeted out:
