George Zimmerman to Sell Signed Thank-You Cards for Legal Expenses

Published November 29, 2012

With legal bills to pay, accused shooter George Zimmerman plans on stepping up a fundraiser to pay for his expenses with a controversial strategy—offering his signature.

The Miami Herald is reporting the 29-year-old plans to send signed thank-you cards in exchange for donations to help pay his legal defense. The announcement was made Wednesday on Zimmerman’s legal defense fund’s website, which is managed by his defense attorney, Mark O’Mara.

“The New George Zimmerman Defense Fund, at George's request, will begin sending Thank You Cards to people who have contributed to the Defense Fund,” says the site. “Each card will be personally signed by George. The identity of all donors will continue to be kept strictly confidential, and the envelope of the Thank You Cards will not have any reference to Mr. Zimmerman or the O'Mara Law Group.”

O’Mara said an existing fund has raised $140,000 since last May, but the money is now running low.

Maybe if he knit me a sweater or something, but I'm not donating for a signed card.

The Stand Your Ground Law has created a mess.


http://news.yahoo.com/shooting-death...004720741.html


MIAMI (Reuters) - A Florida man appeared in court on Wednesday to face charges in the shooting death of an apparently unarmed black teenager in a case putting Florida's controversial "Stand Your Ground" law back under the U.S. media spotlight less than a year after the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Michael Dunn, 45, is being held without bail on charges of second-degree murder for the Friday night shooting of Jordan Davis, who was also 17.
According to authorities, Dunn pulled into the parking lot of a Jacksonville, Florida, gas station alongside the SUV where Davis and three friends, all of them young African Americans, were listening to music.
Dunn asked them to turn their music down and, after an apparent exchange of words with Davis, he produced a gun and fired eight or nine shots at the SUV. At least two of the bullets hit Davis, causing his death.


Police say no shotgun or other weapon was found in the SUV where Davis, a high school student, was shot and killed.

Huh? SYG has created a mess? This isn't even a SYG case. ???

The headline written by a "reporter" or "editor" of this Yahoo News article is a complete retard. This is totally different. How would this case put the SYG Law "back under spotlight".

It actually sounds like it is, or at least a lot closer than the Zimmerman case. Full story says the guy's defense is that someone in the SUV brandished a shotgun at him, so he opened fire. If that was true, a SYG defense might apply. I'm really not sure why PenguinJoe cut out that part, but then left the line about them not finding a shotgun in the kids' car.

Come on there's no comparison.

Gacy wasn't a racist.

There's more murder than racism in America, but the liberals can't use murder to advance their agenda.

Murder to advance our agenda is phase II. Do you have a way of quantifying the figures of murder vs. racism?

Well, I've only murdered three times, but have been racist every day for 27 years. Take that, conservatives!

George Zimmerman sues NBC and reporters

http://news.yahoo.com/george-zimmerm...225214165.html

But yet those that say FOXNEWS lies never say anything bad about NBC or MSNBC.

^^^I'm the exception as I don't like any news reporting network exclusively. In my opinion, they all suck and fall short of real reporting--or what it used to be, anyway.

But did NBC edit his 911 call and only play certain parts?

Yeah, they cut out the part where the dispatcher asked what race the guy was, so NBC made it sound like he just volunteered that he was black.

Now NBC tweeted that Fox News edited the gunshots put in Trayvon, and replaced them with 80's Namco arcade sounds.

It was the work of a dumb-ass producer who has since been fired because of it.

Doesn't mean NBC isn't responsible for it anymore.

Why not? Depending on the level of experience of this producer, it's quite possible that nobody was looking over his copy before it went to air, or even heard the unedited quote; except for the editor, but it'd be foolish to fire him because it's the producer who made the decision to turn it into a misleading butt edit.

NBC is responsible for anything an employee does in the course of his job.
The only way I see Zimmerman winning this is if he can prove he wouldn't have been arrsted if not for the edited tape.

An employer is responsible for the actions of its employee period. Firing him admitted guilt.

And bravo to them for firing him. They could have easily tried to protect this employee and deny any guilt like some local police station, but what the guy did was highly unethical, and they fired him without hesitation... no matter how it might reflect on them.

They let Zimmerman go at first.
Here's what I saw on the news after they let Zimmerman go.
Young black kid about 12 who went to buy candy and was just walking down a white area gets shot at for being black by a white man.
That's how this story was reported by the major networks or liberal media.
Then Rev. Al Sharpton took up the cause and all hell broke loose.
Sharpton it should be noted even though a Christian is a liberal.
A liberal Christian is very different than a conservative Christian.
It's like comparing Satan and Michael both are angels but think different.
