George Zimmerman created a website several days ago, complete with a video to prove what a nice guy he is. Oh yeah, and he asked for money. Now, his parents are on hitting up that gravy train, too. They've got their own website up with a long, novella of all the great and wonderful deeds their son has done in his life. Pathetic.
The Global Grind reports that Robert&Gladys.com just launched, and its appearance is a predicable Stars and Stripes theme. How patriotic. It's as if wrapping themselves up in the American flag makes what their son did OK. Oh, and if you're so inclined to donate, they've already got the amount filled in at $50. They don't want much, do they?
In late 2010, a homeless African American man, Sherman Ware, was knocked unconscious for no reason whatsoever by the son of a Sanford City police officer, George was upset that the son was not arrested and that no one seemed to care about the homeless man. George...rallied support for the homeless gentleman...Eventually, largely due to George's efforts, the police officer's son was charged with the assault.
Robert Zimmerman goes on to say in the next paragraph that this mystery man, Sherman Ware, has a sister named Sharon Ware, who was one of the first people to accuse George of racism.
The Zimmermans' website doesn't prove anything. It doesn't give any credible insight into their son. It is nothing more than a money grab, plain and simple, and should not be allowed. After all, aren't their laws against perpetrators and their families profiting off of their misdeeds? Wouldn't this qualify as such? After all, If George Zimmerman cannot afford an attorney, he'll have one appointed.
Of course, his parents don't want a court-appointed attorney. They want the best. And shouldn't they want the best? Their son's story has more holes than a moth-eaten sweater. Military members have independently re-enacted the scenario and found Zimmerman's story to be impossible. In his interview with Sean Hannity, who was accused of offering financial assistant, George first said he didn't regret anything he'd done. Then at the end of the interview, he turned to the camera and in his creepiest sincere voice told 'America' how sorry he was.
Robert and Gladys Zimmerman have taken their tasteless lack of ethics to new heights in trying to raise money off the back of their son...and from the death of a dead young man. They all will have their supporters who think what Trayvon Martin's killer did is fine, even a good thing. It's unfathomable how they believe that killing a 17-year-old kid who was carrying a pack of Skittles and an iced tea was acceptable.
