George Zimmerman's Website Taken Down

Quote:
ORLANDO, Fla. The website that George Zimmerman set up to help raise money for his legal defense in Trayvon Martin's shooting has been disabled, a spokesman for his lawyer said Wednesday.

The website was no longer functioning as of Tuesday, said James Woods, a spokesman for Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of the 17-year-old Martin in February. He has pleaded not guilty and is claiming self-defense. http://www.therealgeorgezimmerman.com

"It was taken down at Mark's request and he will not have any future online presence unless authorized in advance by Mark," Woods said in an email.

He said he had no information on how much money the website raised.

O'Mara has hinted that he will ask Zimmerman to be declared indigent, which would allow taxpayers to pay for his legal bills. Any income from the website would make that process more difficult.

The website was created almost two weeks ago by Zimmerman's family to thank his supporters and to receive donations from anyone who wanted to help with his legal defense.

The 44-day delay in Zimmerman's arrest spurred protests nationwide and inspired a national debate about racial profiling, equal justice under the law and Florida's self-defense law.

Zimmerman went into hiding earlier this week after he was released from jail on a $150,000 bond.

Good idea to take the website down until AFTER the determination of the court.

It doesn't even tell us what kind of candy Zimmerman likes to eat.

Honestly, there is some really good info in that article, but it doesn't enlighten us in any way about the actual altercation that took place.

So, the media has gotten the Race Card wrong and changed part of the 911 call to make him sound racist, when will the masses learn not to trust what they say.

Not only did he make a lot of calls to 911, but so did his neighbors (Black, White, Hispanic...)...the facts change the slant against Z. There were many more neighbors afraid for their lives and property.

The media loved the ratings boast, I for one turn the channel when NBC has anything to announce about the case. Most of the time I go to FOX/CNN to get my news now, I feel when I compare both sites I get the news "fare and balanced".

I want justice served, not emotional "Street Justice" like some have called for.

What?!?! How come you aren't calling for revenge against this white, racist, fat, want-to-be-cop? You mean you form your own opinions based on real information? I laugh at you!!

Furthermore you are supposed to continue to assume Zimmerman is lying based on.. well.. based on absolutely nothing. AND you are supposed to assume Martin was as pure as the driven snow and would never have attacked Zimmerman as Zimmerman alleges - because we all know druggie losers on suspension from school for the third time would NEVER do something stupid like attack someone just for following them around.

It will be interesting to see if this case ever winds up going to a jury.

I skimmed over much of the family history stuff. I do wish they had gone into a little more detail on his past arrest and the mutual restraining orders he and an ex-gf filed. There was also a story about him being fired as a bouncer for being too aggressive which wasn't mentioned at all.

The article, still doesn't tell me what happened the night Martin was killed. It doesn't change the fact that Zimmerman fucked up that night...

No article is going to tell you what happened that night. There are only two people that know, one of them is dead, and you don't believe the other one.

Glad you noticed. So that makes me wonder what's the point of the article...

So...

-Zimmerman [sarcasm]fed poor Black kids in slums and gave up a Kidney to a Black kid on his death bed[/sarcasm]...then he eventually shot and killed one.

-Zimmerman has some Black blood*...and then shot and killed a kid who happened to be Black.


It's a "puff piece" designed to make a fuck up who killed a kid look like an Angel.



*Btw, got news for you White people reading this...YOU ALL HAVE SOME BLACK BLOOD....it only takes one drop. Neo-Negros unite!!!

It's better if we make uninformed judgments than informed ones. White mexican shot black kid. Not hard to tell he is a liar. No more information please.

Its' directed at all the guys in here all creaming themselves because we got some puff piece making Zimmerman look like an Angel. It does NOTHING to take way from what happened that night.

You guys are still smarting from all the Martin baby pics.

How did the article inform you of anything other than Zimmerman's being even more of a Mutt than we already knew? Shit, you yourself noted that it didn't say anything about what happened that night.

re: Unarmed teen gets shot by Zimmerman...[Verdict: Not Guilty] ptII

It informed me about a lot of things that I didn't know, including why Zimmerman purchased a gun. It didn't tell us what happened that night. It paints a picture of Zimmerman based on actual facts rather than speculation, so that is a benefit. Interpretation of those facts may of course vary. But more information is a good thing. I'd be interested in more information about Trayvon as well.

I'm curious what information could come to light that would cause you to change your mind on the situation. If information did come out to show that Trayvon did sneak up on Zimmerman and bash him in the head first, told him he was going to die, and tried to take the gun away, would you switch "sides" on this issue or still blame the whole thing on Zimmerman getting out of his car?
