Zimmerman special prosecutor gets all-around bad reviews; Zimmerman granted $150k bond
As we noted earlier this morning, the bail hearing for George Zimmerman is taking place and the nation’s eyes are riveted on the live feed. At this moment, Twitter users across the board are giving thumbs-down to the Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey and her team’s performance. Assistant prosecutor Bernardo de la Rionda helped out. Or rather, he wasn’t helping at all. Zimmerman apologized to the Zimmerman family and defended himself against domestic violence charges. The judge granted him $150,000 bond and required Zimmerman to wear a tracking device.
Man this first state prosecutor in the #Zimmerman case sucks.

This prosecution so bad, Zimmerman won't get community service.

The prosecutor in this Zimmerman trial doesn't seem to be the brightest bulb. Ineffective questions, lots of paper shuffling, lame almost.

Watching Zimmerman bail hearing, prosecutor went hard after Zimmerman on whether he apologized to Martin family. Seemed out of place…

Watching this Zimmerman hearing. Aside from the facts, this prosecutor is terrible.

One more thing. Zimmerman apologized. Prosecutor jumped up to cross examine. Why? Do you really need to prove the apology is insincere

LOL So the Prosecutor says Zimmerman shouldn't have contact with witnesses. Defense Attorney said, "there are no named witnesses."

Many Twitter users note that the prosecution team is weak because the case is weak:
@FoxNews Correct call on bail. Prosecution's case is weak and much reasonable doubt. Zimmerman will be found not guilty!

What does the prosecutor have on Geo Zimmerman? The affidavit supporting a 2nd degree murder charge is remarkably weak http://t.co/8QCZiezc
