Martin family attorney: Family fears George Zimmerman is 'flight risk'

An attorney for the family of Trayvon Martin tells CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront the family fears George Zimmerman may be a "flight risk." Reacting to a news conference held earlier in the day by two former attorneys for Zimmerman, who told reporters they were stepping away from the case after "losing contact" with Zimmerman, the family's lawyer says "they don't know where he is."

    Travone was murdered. It would be a blessing and easy to accept if he had been arrested instead of being murdered by someone who thought he was suspect to something. There is a huge population of people who view Blasck as suspects. They don't march in the strets proclaiming guilt, nor innocence. Their silence, which is loud and clear, calls for a sentence. For people who happens to be Travone's color, the sentencing is for life..

    Can't believe armstrong williams (aka-uncleT0m) has the audacity to attack Black People by trying to campare the ruthless murder of Travon Martin, to OJ Simpson being found not guilty by a jury of his peers. Ironically, the unclet0m Williams, most caucasians (not all), and hispanics ares calling for a jury of zimmermans peers to decide his guilt. The unclet0m only brought up the OJ case in order to cast a disparaging light upon Black People. Unclet0ms like armstrong williams, are who the mostly caucasian (not all) racist majority call upon as they're mouthpiece, to make racist insults on the character of Black People. If anything, the OJ Simpson case shows how a Black Person accused of a crime is immediately, if not sooner, arrested, and a caucasian-hispanic-jew (or whatever he's calling himself these day's) would never have been arrested if not for the media attention provided by Black People, Caucasian People, Hispanic People, Asian People, Native American People, and Indian (fm India) People protesting his murder and the incompetence of the Sanford, FL police department. In addition, the added pressure put on the government to step in due to the racist nature of the Sanford, Florida police department by allowing a murderer to go free by misusing a "stand your ground" law, and allowing zimmermans parent's to use they're influence as former, and current court workers.
    This case didn't divide America. Most Caucasians(certainly not all), with they're "Lets Demonize a Black Person Every Chance We Get" mentality, has done that long ago. Recruiting boot-lick unclet0ms like armstrong williams, who most Black People liken to Willie Lynch and is NOT a credible representative of the Black Community. Williams is mad because NO Black Person respects him, nor do they wish to speak with him on any issue, because his views are perverted by his self-hatred. Williams hates his own big lips, dark-skin, etc... He hates all thing associated with being Black. He's an easy stool-pigeon for racist caucasians to use, plus he makes it so easy.

    I would like to know how it felt for Zimmerman to walk in Tavon's shoes for a little while.

      I don't think Travon was ever arrested for second degree murder or had huge populations of minorities marching in the streets and calling for his incarceration.
