George Zimmerman has launched a website—TheRealGeorgeZimmerman.com—to relay a message thanking his supporters, and to collect donations via PayPal for his living and legal defense expenses.
George Zimmerman’s attorney, Hal Uhrig, confirmed to Fox News that the website, was in fact produced by the real George Zimmerman, who otherwise has gone into hiding as a special prosecutor determines whether he should face charges in the death of Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman’s lawyers confirmed to NBC that the site, which domain records show was created Sunday, is real and is operated by Zimmerman himself. It solicits donations through PayPal with a promise that “any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment.”
“I am the real George Zimmerman,” a message on the site begins. “On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website’s sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries.”
“It has come to my attention that some persons and/or entities have been collecting funds, thinly veiled as my “Defense Fund” or “Legal Fund”. I cannot attest to the validity of these other websites as I have not received any funds collected, intended to support my family and I through this trying, tragic time.
I have created a Paypal account solely linked on this website as I would like to provide an avenue to thank my supporters personally and ensure that any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment. I will also personally, maintain accountability of all funds received. I reassure you, every donation is appreciated. Sincerely, George Zimmerman”
The posted message concluded with a quote from Edmund Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men do nothing.” Earlier on Monday, Angela Corey, the special prosecutor appointed to investigate the shooting death of Martin, said that the case will not go to a grand jury. This almost certainly means that Zimmerman will be charged with murder to appease the lynch mob lead by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the Black Panthers.
I made a donation via paypal last night. The website has been up and down, perhaps due to heavy traffic. But I received a receipt from Paypal immediately. About an hour later I received an email directly from George Zimmerman thanking me for the support.
I don’t know if Zimmerman committed a crime. But I do know that the police, and prosecutor collected evidence and heard from witnesses who supported Zimmerman’s claim of self defense. Zimmerman and all citizens have a right to due process.
I encourage those who believe in due process and support Second Amendment civil rights to donate directly to the legal defense fund via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you donate directly to the email from your paypal account, 100% of the donation will go to George Zimmerman’s defense fund. Liberal fascists are outraged that Zimmerman has established a legal defense fund.
Innocent until proven guilty has been thrown out by the mob. See Twitter for details. The mob is outraged that Zimmerman has established a legal defense fun. The State is caving into the mob by not presenting the evidence to a grand jury.
The Main Stream Media and the Mob have already convicted Zimmerman. They are doing everything in their power to prevent him from having a fair trial. Now the State of Florida has caved to the lynch mob and Zimmerman’s case won’t be presented to a grand jury. Instead, he will be arrested, jailed and tried because of politics not the facts of the case. This is not justice.
