    "Two attorneys for the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin said Tuesday that they have withdrawn as his counsel because they haven’t heard from him in days and he is taking actions related to the case without consulting them.

    Attorney Craig Sonner and Hal Uhrig said at a news conference they haven’t heard from George Zimmerman since Sunday. They said that against their advice, Zimmerman contacted the special prosecutor who will decide if he should face charges. ...

    Zimmerman set up a website therealgeorgezimmerman.com to collect money from his supporters, but the attorneys didn’t know about it until they started getting questions from the media, Sonner said.

    “I am the real George Zimmerman,” the website said. “As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life.”"

    I'd also like to see if his judge father gets implicated, maybe for a charge like obstruction of justice in the hours following the killing.

    But if George Zimmerman has gone out of Florida, when he's brought back for arraignment the court should either deny him bail or set it high for being a potential flight risk.

    Poor Georgie! It's all about him -- he's the real victim here -- isn't it obvious?
    All he did was chase down and murder a child in the street and now all kinds of inconvenient things are happening to him. Please donate to his website right away -- has anyone ever been so deserving of your help? icon_rolleyes.gif

    He's just trying to collect money so that he can leave the country.
