Zimmerman Bond Hearing Going on Now
ALSO: Photo of Zimmerman's Bloody Head

UPDATED 11:11AM Zimmerman was granted $150,000 bail with GPS and electronic monitoring.

This gave the most in-depth look we've had at the prosecution's case so far. It does not look strong at all.

OLD: LIVESTREAM AVAILABLE: Courtesy Slublog, the livestream of the bond hearing.

A little late for this, but George Zimmerman's bond hearing is going on right now. (Some background here.) The question at these things is whether the defendant would be either a danger to the community or a flight risk. Zimmerman, clearly, is neither.

His attorney, Mark O’Mara, is expected to argue for bond for Zimmerman -- who has spent the past nine days as an inmate in Seminole County’s John E. Polk Correctional Facility -- during a 9 a.m. hearing before Seminole County Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. O’Mara is likely to argue that Zimmerman’s behavior since the shooting nearly two months ago justifies a bond: Though in hiding, Zimmerman stayed in touch with law enforcement, and turned himself in once charges were filed. He also has family ties to the area.

AS IF WE DIDN'T ALREADY KNOW the "Zimmerman wasn't injured" claim was utter BS. You could see the wounds on the video and now, ABC News, of the "exclusive" story claiming Zimmerman wasn't injured, has "exclusive" photos of the bloody back of Zimmerman's head. I won't post it here because it's quite bloody---almost as if it was smashed into the ground several times---but the link is here.
