I have stayed away from this Trayvon Martin travesty.
Here is my take: George Zimmerman shot and killed that child. I think he should be arrested, charged and convicted. It is absurd and outrageous! How can you just “say” it was self-defense and go on about your business? I have never seen this happen. Shouldn’t he have to prove he was defending himself? I have chosen not to write anything prior to today. But I was watching the news this morning and I just had to say something.
George Zimmerman has created a website to beg for donations. This is seriously outrageous and a slap in the face. He wants money to defend himself? WOW!
Here is an excerpt from his homepage.
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 website 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 reassure you, every donation is appreciated.
He also has a contact page; you can send him a message — showing your support.
You are a murderer! You should also be ashamed of yourself for putting up this website. You do not deserve any support and you definitely should not receive a dime.
