George Zimmerman A Hero After Pulling A Trapped Family From Their Overturned Car?!?

| Filed under: Legal MattersEtc.

George Zimmerman phone calls

Remember that scene in the movie Crash where Thandie Newton's character flips her car over and needs Matt Dillon, the racist cop,
to rescue her before everything goes up in flames? But then she realizes who he is and starts FAH-reaking out?

Hmm. Funny how life imitates art and sometimes.

George Zimmerman, the accused killer of Trayvon Martin, is making headlines AGAIN. But this time, he's done something rather heroic!

According to Florida police, Zimmerman was one of two men who helped rescue a family of four trapped in their overturned SUV after crashing on the highway!

The accident occurred less than one mile from where Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon in Sanford, Florida!

How eery is THAT?

When police arrived, the father, mother and two children involved in the crash had all been pulled to safety, thanks in part to George Zimmerman.

Hey, we have to give credit where credit it due. If George Zimmerman really DID save the lives of these people, he should be commended for his bravery.

But this doesn't even come CLOSE to clearing his name.

The whereabouts of Zimmerman had been unknown following the not guilty verdict of his murder trial. The 29-year-old was thought to be in hiding. The entire Zimmerman family have reportedly been receiving death threats now from those angry about the jury's decision.

But apparently, Mr. Zimmerman was in the right place at the right time last week! We're happy to see someone who at one time did something so horrible actually do something GOOD!

    Stop pandering to the racists, it's disgusting! He hasn't committed a crime and he's proven to be a hero.

    I call BS on this I don't believe it for a second. I think this a PR stunt to try to make him look better publicly. He is still a murderer of a teenage kid.

    This man had a trial. He was found innocent of premeditation. Not guilty. What is racist is the aftermath. They call him a white Mexican. I guess then denzel Washington is a white Blackman and enemen is a black white man. Give me a break. This is all media propaganda. Divide and conquer, is the game they are playing. Whites, blacks, browns, reds, yellow, WHATEVER, we need to call them on their rant!

    doesn't come close to clearing his name???? huh…he is not guilty…his name is cleared.
    end of story…
    and by the way, when will the media begin to tell the truth about gz???
    he spent a good part of his life mentoring young, including black…

    what'll be really funny is when the family sues him and the other guy for exaburating the injuries they got from the accident. lol any first responder worth their salt will tell you to stay on the scene til the first responders get there and keep the victims as calm as possible. unless you're a first responder, combat vet w medical training (so a combat vet :p), ER dr/nurse, you have NO CLUE what you're doing and could make things worst. i hope to God that this is just a planted story to make him look good. if not, he's just made things worst for himself! lol

    Because he's the hero America deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight : GEORGE ZIMMERMAN

    I like the acquitted murderer comment that is exactly what he is. he either felt guilty so he wanted to save someone (as if it makes up for the life he took) or he helped to make himself look better.

  22. 22

    If your dumb ass would have watched the trial, you would know why the jury found him not guilty. quit pandering to racist who can't handle the truth. It was zimmerman screaming for help, trayvon threw the first punch and trayvon gave up his "little child" rights when he started bashing zimms head against the sidewalk.

    "Someone who at one time did something so horrible??"
    You were not at the scene of what happened that night, so there is no possible way for you to know what happened. No one alive knows except for Zimmerman himself. All we do know is that there was not enough evidence for him to be proven guilty. So if you do have any desire to sound like somewhat of a credible journalist, you should probably stop assuming/making up things and constantly talking about how guilty George Zimmerman is, when you in fact have no idea, WHAT SO EVER. You sound ignorant. You said this "doesnt come close to clearing his name," however his name has already been cleared. Maybe you were not aware the trial ended.

    Any word on the other guy who helped the family that apparently nobody cares about. I would love to know how he just happened to come across this accident. According to his lawyers and family,he's so afraid that he can't come out. And the Orlando Sentinel said that George Zimmerman wasn't even mentioned in the original written report. The Police there are about some messiness. And people wonder why so many of us aren't buyin' it. Does any of this make sense? Hell no.

    "We're happy to see someone who at one time did something so horrible actually do something GOOD!" If Trayvon Martin hadn't acted like a darkie thug by responding to an inquiry with his fists, he'd still be alive. Zimmerman, as a resident of the private community, had a right to see what the little asshole was doing because HE DIDN'T BELONG THERE, you stupid piece of shit. Zimmerman has been acquitted, so stick your ignorant comments up your diseased ass, ape face.

    Zimmerman is a RACIST THUG with a God complex. PERIOD! The following are all quotes from his personal myspace:

    "I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft ass wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) dont make you a man in my book. Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!”

    "Im still free! The ex hoe tried her hardest, but the judge saw through it! Big Mike, reppin the Dverse security makin me look a million bucks, broke her down! Thanks to everyone for checkin up on me! Stay tuned for the A.T.F. charges……"

    "2 felonies dropped to 1 misdemeanor!!!!!!!!!!! The man knows he was wrong but still got this hump, Thanks to everyone friends and fam, G baby you know your my rock! "

    He shows a pattern of profiling minorities and has been busted for violent behavior before. And Trayvon's the thug? Please!

  84. Jenny says – reply to this


    84

    I think a hoax is too far-fetched, but I think it's entirely possible that Zimmerman owns a police scanner. Lots of people do–old people love them. It just really matches what we know of his psychological makeup–wanting to be a cop and a hero. So I figure he was listening, looking for an opportunity nearby to do a good deed–somewhere he could get to before the police/paramedics came. And sure, if he actually saved their lives and didn't further endanger them, then good.

    I still think he's a murderer though. "Not guilty" is not the same thing as "innocent" (not even in legal terms). Some countries allow "not proven" as a verdict, but since we don't, "not guilty" substitutes for that. Even when a jury does believe in the innocence of a person, they believe that because the prosecution didn't adequately prove that they weren't. The prosecution did a shoddy job in this case and should have gone for manslaughter in the first place. Angela Corey is politically ambitious…

    George Zimmerman emerged from hiding to help rescue a man and his family in an overturned truck after a crash Thursday, turning Zimmerman from pariah to hero.
    Sanford Police Capt. Jim McAuliffe told ABC News that Zimmerman “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over” at a Florida intersection less than a mile from where he shot Trayvon Martin.

So MAJOR problems, when you're a good person, you don't have THIS MUCH negativity surrounding you for nothing!

    I don't care if Zimmerman save my mother from a burning building!! He is still a MURDERER!! He is lucky that he didn't shoot my son, because Zimmerman would NOT have made it to court!! I can't wait until they get rid of that DUMB as* law (Stand Your Ground). We are all going to stand together (Black/White/Brown and Yellow) for Trayvon Martin and his family. If you are having a hard time seeing that Zimmerman is a cold blooded child murderer, THEN close your eyes for a moment and pretend that Trayvon is WHITE. Can you see it now??

  97. LAG1127 says – reply to this


    97

    Re: Ms. Finnell – Um first of all get all your facts straight before you open your mouth. This is not about race this is about right and wrong! Trayvon was wrong he was up to no good and attacked Zimmerman. Zimmerman was very injured and did not know what else to do to protect himself so that is what lead to the conclusion. That child has a very violent past and was on all kinds of drugs. Overal he was a bad kid this is no ones faults but his parents letting him fall down such a dark path. It is just sad to see two lives ruined not only Trayvons but Zimmermans as well. People turned this into a race crime when it was not just a man trying to save his own life from a violent child.
