From BlackStarNews:

In State v. Zimmerman, George Zimmerman’s bail application — his motion for bail is returnable on April 20, 2012 — should be denied.

It would be unthinkable for a Black person in Florida to seek bail after being charged with murder in the second degree for causing the death of a White person. This bail application would be routinely denied.

No lawful reason exists for any White person to be treated differently, under similar circumstances, than any Black person. For this reason alone, this bail application should be denied.

Movant, for this relief herein, must address this issue of racial disparity or the Court should allow leave of court for him to address this issue. The Court can take judicial notice of the judicial practices and patterns in Florida. The state of Florida should not deviate from the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution.
