George Zimmerman Took the Money and Ran

The Steve Miller Band told us a story about a young man who shot somebody, took money, and ran away.

George Zimmerman shot somebody, made money because of it, and has now run away.

George Zimmerman created a web site to raise money for his defense and the living expenses of he and his family.  Even though the web site is “temporarily unavailable” the web site has been documented as saying:

“On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website’s sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries.

It has come to my attention that some persons and/or entities have been collecting funds, thinly veiled as my “Defense Fund’ or “Legal Fund”. I cannot attest to the validity of these other websites as I have not received any funds collected, intended to support my family and I through this trying, tragic time.

I have created a Paypal account solely linked on this wesite as I would like to provide an avenue to thank my supporters personally and ensure that any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment. I will also personally, maintain accountability of all funds received. I assure you every donation is appreciated.

Sincerely, George Zimmerman”

To make reference to a “life altering event” characterizes George Zimmerman as the victim. For Trayvon Martin the “event” was life terminating. Trayvon is dead. His life was not altered, it was ended.

In case that request for “supporters” to give money wasn’t offensive enough, Zimmerman has now disappeared. He ran away. His attorneys don’t even know how to locate him, and have withdrawn as his legal representatives.

Zimmerman’s attorneys said they had not spoken to him since Sunday, after they set up a website with his father for his legal defense. The following day, Zimmerman announced a separate website, to the surprise of his lawyers. Understanding that attorneys and Zimmerman’s father had set up the original web site, Zimmerman’s comments make more sense. It appears that Zimmerman thought his attorneys and his father were out to get him. It appears that Zimmerman believes that his father and his attorneys were not to be trusted.

My only advice to Zimmerman’s father and attorneys is, don’t eat Skittles, drink Iced tea, or wear a hoodie in the rain. You might cause George to be fearful for his life, thereby needing to protect himself. He has a gun, and knows how to use it.

  1. I think these are very disturbing developments in a case that has been extremely disturbing since it first came to light. If I understand the “law” in Florida correctly, the State has 175 days from the date of the incident to arrest and charge Zimmerman or else he walks free.

    It’s been 40 plus days since the shooting. So Zimmerman could stay in hiding till the deadline. That’s probably unlikely but unsetteling. Remember the nut bag guy that put the bomb in a back pack at the Atlanta Olympics? He evaded arrest and ate bugs and leaves in the woods for years (?) before they found him.

    I know…now I’M starting to sound crazy.

    What the hell is going on here?


  2. This is just too bizarre. I find it distressing that we live in a country where some people who commit crimes can suddenly turn themselves into the victim and profit from what they have done that is wrong. To show that he has any shred of decency in him, Mr. Zimmerman should turn himself in to the police and face the legal consequences of his actions.


  3. These latest events only cement the fact that Zimmerman should have been in custody from Day One. All the folks who have been rising to his defense, especially the ones who trivialize Zimmerman’s previous run-ins with the law while demonizing Trayvon, have egg splattered all over their faces. From the Sanford PD, which failed to do even a rudimentary investigation and the enabling father to the attorneys who stood ready to defend him without ever having met him in person, as well as the bloggers who have posted the nastiest posts showing their racial bigotry, he has made fools of all of them.


  4. I don’t know if you will want to post this, Malia. If you do, feel free to move it to a more current thread.

    There is some interesting information on “lean.” This is a drug concoction involving Robotussin cough syrup, soft drink, and candy source of sugar. Consider the Arizona watermelon drink, Skittles, and Robotussin.
