George Zimmerman

Police and community activists around Florida are preparing for the possibility of mass protests if George Zimmerman is acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin. Police are on standby as Zimmerman’s trial closes and the jury gets the case.

For months, officials in the city of Sanford and across South Florida have been working with pastors and youth counselors to stress a non-violent approach if Zimmerman walks free. And police all over the state are joining in the effort.

In Florida, the mother of Trayvon Martin and Democratic lawmakers are calling for the repeal of the state’s so-called “stand-your-ground” law. A bill to repeal the law comes nearly a year after neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman shot and killed the unarmed teen.

While he is sorry that Trayvon Martin ended up dead, George Zimmerman says he doesn't regret anything he did the evening of Feb. 26 and that it was "God's plan" that he would end up killing the unarmed 17-year-old.

"For me to second guess it or judge it" would be wrong, Zimmerman told Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity in a pre-recorded and edited interview broadcast Wednesday night.

The prosecutor in the Trayvon Martin case says a motion by George Zimmerman's attorney asking the judge to disqualify himself is without merit.
 
Responding to the defense's motion for recusal filed last week, prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda submitted a response Tuesday also calling the request "absurd on its face." De la Rionda wrote that though the defense takes issue with language used by Judge Kenneth Lester in setting Zimmerman's second bond at $1 million, it doesn't create any predisposition about future rulings.
 

The State Attorney’s office has released more documents in the case against the neighborhood watchman charged with killing a teenager in Sanford, Florida. the information shows conflicting accounts about the degree of George Zimmerman’s injuries he sustained in a confrontation with 17-year old Trayvon Martin.
