An unarmed seventeen year old kid was followed like a prey and then gunned down by a wild vigilante. George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin like a rabid dog. Trayvon Martin had no previous run-ins with the law of consequence. George Zimmerman had many before he killed Trayvon Martin. In fact the record shows that he was arrested for violence against an officer as well as a restraining order for domestic violence.
Yet the Right Wing and gun nuts were ready to come to the defense of George Zimmerman as they tore down Trayvon Martin with lying photographs and innuendo. Ultimately the polarization and racial stoking was successfully effected by the Right Wing. They are good at what they do. Ultimately Zimmerman got off.
He conned his way out of past altercations with the law. He conned a jury to free him. Since being free, he has been stopped twice for speeding, destroyed property belonging to his wife and physically assaulted his father in law. So far he has conned his way out of all of those as well.
Mr. O’Mara, his attorney, let out that Zimmerman may have executed the largest financial con of them all. This Addicting Info says it all.
Wait, Zimmerman never paid his defense attorney? What happened to all of the money he raised for his “legal defense fund?” It’s interesting, actually. If you visit Zimmerman’s Legal Defense fund web-site you can get a pretty good idea where the majority of the money was spent.
Zimmerman’s web page says that as of January 2, 2013, the “George Zimmerman Defense Fund” had raised a total of $314,099.07. That sounds like a lot of money. The web page goes on to give a not-at-all-detailed break-down of how the money was spent.
None of this should be surprising. The phrase if you lie with dogs you rise with flees is prescient here. The co-adoption of Zimmerman and the Right Wing cohort was a bed made in hell. His lawyers, supporters, and defenders got what they deserve and he will get what is likely going to be a rude awakening.
