One Year After Being Acquitted for Trayvon Martin’s Murder, George Zimmerman Claims He’s Homeless

George Zimmerman was acquitted nearly one year ago for the murder of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. While he may have escaped prison for the teen’s murder, he’s living in a hell-hole of his own making. He is reportedly unemployed, broke and homeless. He now begins divorce proceedings with his estranged wife, Shellie. As they say, karma will catch up with you. It never fails. He has only to look at former NFL great O.J. Simpson.

According to a financial affidavit Zimmerman filed last month, he only has $650 in his bank account and $14,000 in assets, mainly his pickup truck. He is reportedly $2.5 million in debt. His brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., who sparked outrage with racist tweets about Trayvon Martin, said his brother doesn’t have a home, but moves around sleeping at the homes of friends and supporters.

I have to ask, how does George Zimmerman manage to spend more than $3,000 a month, and claim to be homeless and virtually penniless?

 

 

George Zimmerman’s Ex-Attorney Mark O’Mara Calls for Gun Control After Isla Vista Mass Murders

Mark O’Mara, who represented George Zimmerman during the Trayvon Martin murder trial, is calling for gun control in the aftermath of yet another mass shooting in the U.S. He stopped short of proposing any measures to increase gun control. Elliot Rodger, son of “The Hunger Games” assistant director Peter Rodger, killed seven, including himself, and wounded 13, in retribution for being rejected by women. O’Mara’s article comes a day after “Bowling for Columbine” filmmaker Michael Moore said “disturbed white men” were the most dangerous people in America and that the gun, not the bald eagle was America’s national symbol.

The fact is, race seemed to have played a role in the police handling of their contact with Elliot Rodger. The parents cried out for help and they didn’t get it. Instead, the cops paid him a visit and said he was a “nice” young man. Really? He was a ticking timebomb waiting to explode and they may have dropped the ball. He has been called “severely mentally disturbed” as if to somehow excuse his heinous acts. I am pretty sure had this been a black or Hispanic male without the financial means of Elliot Rodger, the cops would have assumed they were troublemakers.

The Isla Vista mass murders comes after we narrowly dodged another shooting massacre recently, when Minnesota teen John David LaDue’s plan to use his alleged arsenal, which included homemade bombs, to murder as many students as he could at his high school, was derailed after a civilian tipped off the police. We can’t go on this way.

We have a problem with gun violence in this country. I think this much is not in dispute. The real debate is this: What do we do about it? Unfortunately, most answers to this question involve greater governmental regulation and intrusion into our lives.

Americans are fiercely independent, sometimes to a fault, and we bristle at any effort seen as trampling our inalienable rights. But the freedoms guaranteed in our Constitution have never been unfettered. Each amendment in the Bill of Rights has spawned a legacy of case law that interprets, defines, refines and restricts our basic freedoms based on the values and needs of the people at the time.

[...]

The Constitution is not written in stone. It evolves as our society evolves. The Second Amendment is more complicated, however, because it deals with issues larger than freedom and oppression; it deals with life and death.

Buried in the Second Amendment is the right to self-defense, the very mechanism that allowed our Founding Fathers to win freedom from tyranny. Some argue it is the right that guarantees all other rights. Our forefathers wanted us to be able to protect ourselves against outside threats, and even from internal tyranny. They may have even intended us to be able to protect ourselves from each other.

It is a stretch to argue they intended guns to be so available, in such strength, that children, high-school populations and co-workers and law enforcement could be so easily slaughtered. Source: CNN

It’s a sad commentary that gun rights advocates are digging in and ignoring the obvious — too many mentally unstable people can get their hands on guns. Why did Elliot Rodger need three automatic guns and 410 rounds of ammunition? That’s despite have three or four police encounters and a history of mental illness? When will real change come instead of the continued stonewalling because of politicians who are in bed with the National Rifle Association?

Frank Taaffe Now Says Pal George Zimmerman Racially Profiled Trayvon Martin

frank taaffe 350x228 Frank Taaffe Now Says Pal George Zimmerman Racially Profiled Trayvon Martin

Frank Taaffe Now Says Pal George Zimmerman Racially Profiled Trayvon Martin

Frank Taaffe, who staunchly defended George Zimmerman during his trial for the murder of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, now says he believes his friend racially profiled the teen. Um, no news there…we already knew Trayvon Martin was racially profiled by wannabe cop Zimmerman.

Taaffe, who was unceremoniously dumped as a regular guest on HLN’s “The Nancy Grace Show” after reports of his ties to a white nationalist radio show, told News13 he believes Zimmerman would not have followed Trayvon Martin if he “had been a white kid on a cell phone.” Again, we knew this…

Taaffe said, “What I know of George and his tendencies and also my opinion is that he racially profiled Trayvon Martin that night because if that had been a white kid on a cell phone, walking through our neighborhood, he wouldn’t have stayed on him the way he did and that’s a fact and I believe that in my heart.”

Gee, I wonder why Frank Taaffe is suddenly so apologetic to Trayvon Martin’s parents after trashing the teen on national television, night after night. Well, he credited the recent tragedies in his life for his change of heart.  He expressed his condolences to the teen’s parents saying, “I’m sorry that you lost your son. I know what that’s like and I wish things had been different.”

Taaffe said, “I can only ask the country to forgive me and today I believe that he racially profiled him based on the color of his skin. He said he has no book deal or a TV show, adding, “I’m just working on me right now and getting right with God.”

I am guessing Frank Taaffe owes George Zimmerman’s estranged wife, Shellie, an apology too for trashing her on Nancy Grace and Dr. Drew’s shows.

Zimmerman Pal Frank Taaffe Called Oprah Winfrey N*gger on White Supremacist Radio Show

Frank Taaffe, who made a name for himself as a close ally of Trayvon Martin’s murderer George Zimmerman, reportedly called Oprah Winfrey a n*gger during a radio show he hosted that’s geared towards white supremacists,  Mother Jones reports.

Political Research Associates, a progressive activist group, posted the audio on Tuesday from an October 2013 segment of Frank Taaffe’s show, “Standing Our Ground,” which aired on the White Voice Network.

During the segment, Taaffe and co-host Joe Adams debate whether Oprah Winfrey can be considered a n*gger. Adams, author of the “Save White People Handbook,” said, “To me she wouldn’t.” Frank Taaffe responded, “I think she is” because she “keeps spewing out all that bullsh*t. She goes over to Switzerland and she says that lady didn’t want to share a handbag because she thought she couldn’t afford it, and she keeps just doing what she’s doing.”

There’s more racist venom:  Frank Taaffe insisted, “You know, it’s birds of a feather, they flock together and stick together, and to me, she’s a n**ger.” “Oprah Winfrey’s a n**ger. She’s a n**ger.”

Taaffe also criticized Winfrey for promoting “her boy,” as in President Barack Obama. Um, Nancy Grace and Doctor Drew must be really proud to have given this racist dirtbag the time of day on their shows night after night. Praise God, we won’t be seeing Frank Taaffe on any TV network again….On Monday, HLN canceled his booking after Mother Jones slammed the network for giving him a platform to spew his racist venom.

As George Zimmerman continues to thumb his nose at Trayvon Martin’s family, an opponent has been chosen to go against him in his celebrity boxing match. Rapper DMX was chosen out of 15,000 applicants. I am guessing he can’t wait to kick his you know what.  Um, I hope the version of DMX that shows up to that boxing match is the same person who went off on Iyanla Vanzant in the most disgraceful way.

…the rapper tells TMZ he wants to fight on behalf of “every black person who has been done wrong in the system…I am going to beat the living f*ck out of him. I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f*ck him up right.” After knocking Zimmerman out, DMX says he intends to urinate on Zimmerman’s face. Source: Gothamist

Jury Selection in Black Teen Jordan Davis’ Murder Case to Begin Monday

michael dunn jordan davis 300x175 Jury Selection in Black Teen Jordan Davis Murder Case to Begin Monday

Michael Dunn’s Trial for Murder of Unarmed Black Teen, Jordan Davis, Set to Begin

The trial of white software developer Michael Dunn for the death of unarmed black teen Jordan Davis, 17, over an argument about loud ‘thug’ music, is about to get underway on Monday with jury selection. The shooting, which occurred in Jacksonville, Fla., is an eerie reminder of Trayvon Martin’s shooting death by wannabe cop George Zimmerman.

Police say Michael Dunn fatally shot Atlanta teen Jordan Davis in 2012 outside a Jacksonville convenience store after arguing over loud music Davis and his friends were playing from their SUV. Dunn was visiting Jacksonville for his son’s wedding. He has been in jail since his November 2012 arrest on first degree murder charges for the teen’s death. He also faces three counts of attempted murder for Leland Brunson, Tommie Stornes and Tevin Thompson, who were in the SUV with Davis at the time of the shooting.

Michael Dunn said he felt threatened for his life after one of the teens raised a shotgun at him. He fired multiple shots into the SUV. He fled the scene and was arrested the next day. It should be noted that no gun was found in the SUV and Jordan Davis was reportedly shot in the back.

It should be noted that State Attorney Angela Corey and Assistant State Attorney John Guy, who played a role in George Zimmerman’s murder trial, are also involved in Michael Dunn’s trial. You will recall Angela Corey came under scathing criticism after Zimmerman was acquitted for Trayvon Martin’s murder. Also assisting Corey in Dunn’s case is Assistant State Attorney Erin Wolfson.

George Zimmerman Facing Legal Trouble for Copying AP Photo in New Painting

George Zimmerman Facing Legal Trouble for Copying AP Photo in New Painting

George Zimmerman, who was acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin, is facing new legal troubles. The Associated Press sent Zimmerman a cease-and-desist letter because he reportedly copied an AP photo of Florida State Attorney Angela Corey.

AP spokesman Paul Colford wrote in a statement to Talking Points Memo and ANIMAL New York that “George Zimmerman clearly directly copied an AP photo to create his painting of Florida State Attorney Angela Corey,” he said in the statement. “The AP has sent a cease-and-desist letter asserting its copyright in the photo to the lawyer who recently represented Zimmerman. That lawyer has responded, and though she no longer represents Mr. Zimmerman, she will be forwarding the letter to him today.”

Still more trouble, Rick Wilson, the photographer who took the photo for the AP, has also retained a lawyer, John Phillips, who told the Orlando Sentinel that he, too, sent George Zimmerman a cease-and-desist letter, stating that if he tries to sell the painting, Wilson will file a lawsuit in conjunction with the AP.

George Zimmerman was slammed on Twitter for posting an anecdote about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., saying” I’ll never forget the feeling when my father took me to the exact spot MLK was standing at the Lincoln memorial when he gave his IHaD speech.”

Samantha Scheibe Wants to Drop Charges and “Get Back” With George Zimmerman

Samantha Scheibe, George Zimmerman’s Girlfriend, Wants to Drop Charges, “Get Back With Him”

Samantha Scheibe, ex-girlfriend of George Zimmerman, who was acquitted for murdering unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, is now backtracking off her 911 claims that he pointed a gun in her face, ABC News reports. She now says she wants to get back with Zimmerman. Um, is that because her 15 minutes of fame are waning?

Zimmerman, 30, who faces a felony aggravated assault charge as well as lesser charges stemming from the incident, is asking to have conditions of his bail modified so he can resume contact with Samantha Scheibe.

According to court documents filed by Zimmerman’s attorney Jayne Weintraub, Scheibe, 27, gave a sworn statement in which she wrote, “I do not want George Zimmerman charged.”…;

Scheibe’s new affidavit taken Dec. 6 stated, “When I was being questioned by police I felt very intimidated…I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to police.”

Scheibe wrote that Zimmerman “never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner” and that “I want to be with George.”

At the very least, if the prosecution proceeds with the case and Samantha Scheibe lies under oath during testimony, she should be charged with perjury.

Princeton Jazz Professor Anthony D. J. Branker Composes “Ballad for Trayvon Martin”

Princeton Jazz Professor Anthony D. J. Branker Composes “Ballad for Trayvon Martin”

The Princeton University Orchestra and the University Concert Jazz Ensemble will perform “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Ochestra and Jazz Quartet,” in honor of the 17-year-old who was shot by wannabe cop George Zimmerman in Sanford, Fl., last year.

The piece was composed by Anthony D. J. Branker, who said he experienced racial profiling in his early 20s, just after graduating from Princeton. Branker told NJ.com, “I was stopped by police at gunpoint because it was believed I broke into someone’s home. I fit a profile. Police surrounded my car.”

According to Branker, the work is intended “to be a form of healing and something that could be seen as a composition of hope — one that speaks to all of us to continue to work together so that children of any race, ethnicity or religious affiliation never have to meet such a tragic end.”

Rather than write from a place of anger, Branker has worked to create a lyrical, peaceful and harmonically beautiful work that incorporates a fugue and Brazilian style. The goal, he said, is to pay tribute to Martin, as well as others who have been victims of racial violence.

[...]

“I see my role as an educator and composer and artist to not so much address historic events, but to touch the listener in some way, to make some sort of contact and relationship,” he said. “I simply want to make a connection, whether it’s on a level of social consciousness, or music and expression.” Source: NJ.com
