Yesterday, George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed Trayvon martin, returned back to the Seminole County Jail in Sanford, Fla. to turn himself in after a judge revoked his bail for lying about his finances.
Earlier this week, ABC Nightline’s JuJu Chang featured a special report on the secret world of provocative swinging parties and married couples who ‘Swap.’
“Nightline” went inside the top secret world of swingers — as guests, not participants — to a highly provocative masquerade party at a hotel in New York City hosted by a group called Behind Closed Doors.
A smart Colorado toddler was able to find his way back to his parents by knocking on a stranger’s door on a freezing cold night after his dad’s car was hijacked while he was in the back seat.
Three-year-old Roilati Pettiford showed up at the Colorado Springs home of Traci Gilbert, 53, around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. The boy, wearing nighttime diapers and a thin jacket, was covered in snow and carried a plastic bag that held a container of soy milk, a Sippy cup, two diapers, wipes and pajama bottoms.
Gilbert said she didn’t see anything when she looked through her peephole when her doorbell rang. “I opened the door, and a little tiny boy was standing there and he said, ‘Help me, it’s cold,'” she said.
The boy had managed to climb up 14 slippery, slush-covered steps on an icy, sleety night in pitch darkness, with temperatures in the 30s.
The boy’s father, Anthony Pettiford, said they were in his car returning from a family event when he stopped to purchase gum at a convenience store, leaving his keys in the ignition momentarily. Pettiford said he ran into some friends and was talking with them when a carjacker jumped into his vehicle and took off with his son still in the back seat.
“I started running after him. And he hit that gas so fast I couldn’t catch him,” Pettiford said.”
George Zimmerman made his first appearance in a Florida court earlier today (Thursday) for his second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Speaking only a few words, Zimmerman acknowledged his next court arraignment, which is set for May 29th, 2012.
George Zimmerman,28, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin 44 days ago, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder earlier today after months of mounting tensions and protests across the country.
Special prosecutor Angela Corey announced the charges but would not discuss how she arrived at them or disclose other details of her investigation, saying: “That’s why we try cases in court.”
