George Zimmerman apologized to Trayvon Martin's family Friday morning in a surprise witness stand appearance and moments later a judge agreed he could be released on $150,000 bail in the racially charged case that has captivated the United States. "I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son," Zimmerman told the parents of Trayvon Martin, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, who were in the Sanford, Florida, court. "I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. And I did not know if he was armed or not," said Zimmerman who 28-years old. [ABC's Matt Gutman who was at the court house tweeted Zimmerman could leave jail tomorrow. No word on secret location of future housing. ](!/mattgutmanABC/status/193356509277732864)
