    George Zimmerman could be freed on Friday. He has been in jail for the murder of Trayvon Marin, but his lawyer said he could be freed after tomorrow’s bond hearing. “[To keep him in jail] the state would need to establish that the defendant is both a flight risk and a danger to the community—and there is little or no evidence to support such allegations,” one expert said. Bond is likely to be $1,000 or more, and Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara added, “I just hope we can get my client out to some place safely. There have been threats on his life.” Meanwhile, a task force was formed by the Florida governor to review the Stand Your Ground law that has been brought to light because of the case.
