An eye for an eye justice is what many are calling for in South Florida this week.
George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012, has reportedly fled Miami, Florida following death threats from people still outraged by his acquittal.
Last week, the 30-year-old was spotted at the beach with his girlfriend and her kid when he began being harassed by those around him.
George quickly returned to his hotel, but the angry crowd from the beach followed him, with some even shouting that he had a $10,000 bounty on his head!
Security stood outside Zimmerman’s room for the rest of the day and for the entire night. He left town early the next day, fearing for his safety.
The danger he’s in seems to be very real and the stakes to have him killed are even higher than 10 grand!
More like $1 MILLION!
Just look at what a member of the New Black Panther Party said about capturing Zimmerman following Trayvon’s death in the video (below).
It sounds like they’re asking for people to take the law into their own hands.
Sound familiar, George?
As disgraceful as this crime may be, violence is never the answer. An eye for an eye is NOT justice; it’s just more senseless murder.
Stay tuned for more details.
