Considering how awesome this whole thing has been handled so far, I can hardly wait for the trial.

I think if your bond's revoked you get at least some of the money back. It's a surety, not a penalty.
Even though I tend to agree with Zimmerman's defense on the main issue of the death of Treyvon Martin, I have to agree that he's probably a flight risk. Not to escape any possible punishment, but to preserve his own life and the lives of his family. IMO, that was what he and his wife were planning on saving the money for. Just in case either she and the kids or all four had to flee to Peru to escape the death threats.
The judge left that completely out of his calculations, either deliberately (possibly due to liability issues in the event the New Black Panthers' bounty on Zimmerman causes his death) or doesn't credit it as a reason for the possibility of flight risk.
