After more than a month of speculation about where he might be, this morning George Zimmerman is behind bars in the Seminole County Jail.

44 days after the neighborhood watch volunteer shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey has ended her investigation and is now preparing for a trial.

It's a decision Martin's family and thousands of supporters had been demanding since his death.

"We just wanted him brought to justice and some type of accountability for the murder of our son," Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon's mother, said.

After the announcement Zimmerman was moved from Jacksonville to the jail in Sanford.

His defense will likely enter it's first plea in the case during an initial hearing later today.

Defense attorney Mark O'Mara says he will be seeking a bond that will allow George Zimmerman to be released as the proceedings progress.

I find it very odd, but not unusual, that police authorities did not act appropriately in dealing with this case.I am definitely not a racist, but if Zimmerman had been black he would have been charged long ago. Here are the most telling points in this situation:
1. Zimmerman was told explicitely not to follow this youth
2. He returned to his car to get a hand gun
So, he ignored instrructions from someone in authority, and armed himself with a deadly weapon as if he expected to use it. ALARMING
