George Zimmerman, the guy who stalked unarmed teen Trayvon Martin and shot him dead because, as he put it, it was "God's Plan" to do so, is asking once again for donations for his legal defense.
From an article:
George Zimmerman plans to step up fundraising to pay for his expenses while he awaits trial for fatally shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
The former neighborhood watch leader's attorney said Wednesday that Zimmerman plans to launch the New George Zimmerman Defense Fund next month.
Donors will receive "thank you" cards individually signed by Zimmerman.
Attorney Mark O'Mara said an existing fund has raised $140,000 since last May, but the money it is running a bit low.
You don't say.
I think it's sick to send money to someone who is so clearly a domestic abuser, paranoid murderer and abuser of children, who has a violent past, for the sake of their legal defense. But then, pro-gun extremists will do anything to support their twisted philosophy for carrying guns anywhere and shooting whomever you think seems "scary" (-- here I'm thinking of the recent case of another guy who shot dead another black teen in Florida for having too loud of music, in a car with other "intimidating" black teens, then fled the scene of the shooting, claiming it was in "self defense." Will they send him defense money too?? But I digress).
But let's say you think like the pro-gun extremists and saw the stalking and shooting of Trayvon as completely valid and justified. I STILL think they're nuts for sending money. After all, Zimmerman had previously lied to the court about how much money he had raised the first time he asked for donations, then used his wife to try to hide it by shifting the money around in different accounts, then prepared to skip the country.
With such obvious and calculated abuse of donor money, and his bad behavior even after murdering Trayvon, only someone who sympathizes with criminals would still be willing to give this lunatic money ... AND want a signed thank you card in return! Just another example of how pro-gun extremists are also pro-criminal.
ADDENDUM (11/30/12): Zimmerman's lawyers attempted to distance Zimmerman from his blatant attempt to sell his signature for money.
Meanwhile, Zimmerman's wife, Shellie, is attempting to have her perjury charge thrown out, despite her obvious guilt for lying about and trying to hide her husband's donated funds. See HERE for details on how she moved money from his account to hers, and from his account to his sister's, to hide it.
HERE is an interesting article, detailing the drugs that were in Zimmerman's system the night he stalked and killed Trayvon Martin, and their potential side effects, which may have contributed to Zimmerman's lethal behavior.
