Can someone who is following this more closely confirm did I overhear correctly that he's now disappeared/in hiding?
If so. This again seems like awesome law enforcement work while still subject to investigation.

He's in hiding, no info where, his Mom is peruvian and lives in Peru, his ex-lawyers said he is far from FLA despite the fact that they never met him in person. Who knows.Silent....but shredly.

The reports said he was released at the scene of the crime with little questioning. Actually he was treated for wounds (not reported), taken to the station (not reported), questioned for hours, and officers wanted to charge him (not reported) but were over ruled by the DA. That's not semantics.
Known, relevant, factual details that contradicted a clear cut case of murder were left out of the reported it seems."You damn colonials and your herds of tax write off dressage ponies". PNWBrit

I'd go into seclusion as well if a bounty/death threats had been placed on my head (see: Salmon Rushdie). If this is indeed the case."You damn colonials and your herds of tax write off dressage ponies". PNWBrit

So even before more facts became widely known, in one corner there were the Martin supporters and in the other there were those who took to attacking Sharpton & Jackson and claiming that black-on-black crime is never protested even though, in fact, it is. As a result, what might have been a conservative story about government incompetence instead became another example of the usual sides squaring off against each other.

New Black Panther Party Offers $10K Bounty For George Zimmerman

Mikhail Muhammad of the New Black Panther Party speaks to the media next to a memorial to Trayvon Martin outside The Retreat at Twin Lakes community where Trayvon was shot and killed by George Michael Zimmerman.
Over the weekend, members of the New Black Panther Party showed just how tense the situation in the Trayvon Martin shooting has gotten: They offered a $10,000 bounty for the capture of George Zimmerman, who shot and killed the unarmed teenager.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Mikhail Muhammad announced the reward during a protest on Saturday, and when a Sentinel reporter asked if he was inciting violence, Muhammad said, "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth."
Nationally the shooting death has brought up questions about whether Zimmerman, who was on a Neighborhood Watch patrol, profiled Martin and whether Sanford police's failure to arrest Zimmerman had to do with racism.
The New Black Panther's bounty just heightens that narrative.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the New Black Panther Party has been rejected by the Black Panther Party of the '60s and '70s. The SPLC says the group is "a virulently racist and anti-Semitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews and law enforcement officers..."
The Sentinel also reported that the group "called for the mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture Zimmerman."
The paper adds:
"Sanford city officials issued a statement late Saturday, condemning the group's appeal and asking citizens to leave all arrests to the police. The statement was sanctioned by Sanford Police Captain Robert O'Connor — one of two Captains now leading the department in the wake of Police Chief Bill Lee's temporary suspension."You damn colonials and your herds of tax write off dressage ponies".

It's a local murder story made national because murder, guns and race (most prominently) are all being placed on center stage.
Good journalism exposes wrong, distorting the facts of the reporting of that story only undermines their credibility as an unbiased source."You damn colonials and your herds of tax write off dressage ponies". PNWBrit

Then you make a sweeping statement about my belief in NPR s editorial standards.
NPR is a news source I've relied on for 25 years or so. Listen pretty much every day for at least 30-40 minutes. The most of any source I rely on for news, besides my local newspaper.
So why did I need to research my conclusion that there was a bounty ? I heard it on several credible sources, before believing it was accurate."You damn colonials and your herds of tax write off dressage ponies". PNWBrit

That's the act of balancing mentioned earlier where not rushing to judgment can sometimes lead to bypassing judgment itself. If judging too quickly often leads to injustice, refusing to judge is the flip side that does the same. In spite of all the obfuscation on the part of the media, without hard questions being asked there would be no case, no ongoing investigation and no judgment at all.
There may not be enough evidence to overcome reasonable doubt but the lower bar of probable cause would appear to be reached by the smoking gun, the unarmed victim and the evidence of a pursuit heard on the 911 call.

Just what I've seen on a couple internet sites, a local radio talk show
And then for them to quite legitimately..... suggest that you'd likely further researched and substantiated what was apparently at one time your unsubstantiated conclusion......
Because you know you've done this before in this thread......haven't you?
