George Zimmerman has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin, but his whereabouts briefly became known when he helped to rescue a man trapped inside a crashed truck last week.
Zimmerman "pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over" at a Florida highway intersection, a Sanford Police Dept officer told ABC.
Zimmerman was accused during his trial of having "a hero complex," but now he "found a real way to become a hero," acknowledges a writer at the often-left-leaning Atlantic Wire.
Zimmerman will likely remain in hiding for some time. He wears a bulletproof vest and has received many death threats, according to his father Robert.
It wasn't just 'A' man Zimmerman saved but 2 parents and 2 children in a over turned SUV. Another man (unnamed) helped Zimmerman save the family from the over turned Ford Explorer at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46 about a mile from where the Zimmerman/Martin incident happened. Zimmerman stayed just long enough to help and talk to the police before he left.~ ABC News story by Matt Gutman & Alexis Shaw.
@ctc HMMM......I drove a truck OTR for years. Drove over 125,000 miles a year......9+ hours a day, 7 days a week for 3 weeks at a time b4 coming home. You know how many traffic accidents I came up to where I would be 1st responder on the scene? ONE! This isn't something you drive around in circles looking for......you would be looking for awhile. You're dismissed!
Zimmerman I think is a good man,as do all the people he associates with. The problem is Black thugs and illiterate white left wingers that have no clue of the real facts of the trial will never let this go. If something does happen to Zimmerman or his family Whites should go on a savage revenge spree. We have allowed these idiots freedom for to long. If they can't play by our rules they should leave or disappear.
Of course I do. This occurred less than a mile from where the shooting of Martin occurred. For a man who fears for his life from death threats he's received I have to question why he was even in the area. This stinks and I don't buy it.
Trayvon was a young thug who along with taking drugs, probably sold it. He was suspended from school three times in one year, the second time he was caught with a bag full of jewelry he stole from lockers.
Word is out that Martin punched out a bus driver. It was only in do time he would windup in jail or dead, he just got there a little earlier than some of his fellow thugs.
proper edicate now is to include Obama into the story also only 35 years ago... so you have to re- frame the story into if this happened 35 years ago and Obama was like his fake son.... he would go on to beat and rob them...
@cnw95 You'll hear somebody at MSNBC say something stupid like..."The only reason Zimmerman helped was because the family was 'light skinned'. If it had been a family of African Americans he would have never stopped!" <~~or something similar.
the only way I can see them twisting this to their advantage is if by some remote chance all four people in the vehicle or white Hispanics..... then they can say oh sure but he wouldn't have stopped to help if they were black people
Or maybe he has Real acute intuition that plugged into the whole Trayvon was protected by racist political agenda to show decrease in crime among black youths so stolen jewelry was purposely not identified until well after the fact.It kept a cop at a school funded for a few more months, anyway ... see http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2013/05/0...
So it was jewelry from a home nearby Martin's school and not school lockers...interesting. This kid, should have been in jail and would have avoided being killed by Zimmerman had justice been served before. I blame the School Resource Officers for Martin's death.
kudos to Mr Zimmerman but everytime I hear the name Zimmerman I think of the 911 operator pleading with him not to pursue the young black man that was walking home he perceived as a suspect all I can do is visualized him saying I'm going to kill me a n**** tonight
So....you're saying that Zim had his gun pulled and cocked....ready for action? He was just waiting for Martin to hit him (several times), bang his head on concrete before popping a cap in his......? Why, if he was "going to kill me a n**** tonight", didn't he just cap his.....?
If Zimmerman had it out for any blacks he didn't need to sign up as a neighborhood watchman, and be on record as patrolling that night or call the police. All he had to do was team up with other rebel rousers, arm themselves to the teeth, drive into a black neighborhood and shoot up anyone who moved.
Martin was probably casing the houses he was eye balling, seeking to graduate from robbing school lockers to homes to support his drug habit.
@TheLoneRanger the safety was off and a bullet was chambered Mr Zimmerman please don't pursue the suspect wait until police arrived on scene why he went anyway would have been something I would have as a jurist like to have known or as a citizen but until I know this information I have to assume he perpetrated that crime
Gee, I wonder where those racist bastards are now. 0bama, Holder, Al Sharlatan, Jesse Jackass, The Black Pansies? Oh I guess being a hero doesn't count. I wonder if the victims here were black? Oh what a story that would be.
@truthsayer it would be something. The first thing I was looking for in this headline was the race of the family he saved. I noticed how the media "conveniently" left that little factoid out. As for the term "white Hispanic," that title must be a new tool for the media to capitalize on the whole BS race wars thingy...
Domestic Violence And he had his own brush ups with the law.
I don't want to hear all you people BS when he save 15 kittens from this day forward!
When Flyod Maywheather was charged with domestic violence and had run-ins with security guards he was demonized all over America. Zimmer is about to reach Saint status because a segment of this country wants to manufacture something that isn't there! You can get over yourselves NO ONES BUYING IT.
@EyesWideShut Wrong, Super Zs a good man, who stands up against injustice for people of all colors, that has been proven time after time. He saved kittens too!? I guess its not just humans the man protects. No matter how much you don't want to hear it, you are wrong and certainly support the minority opinion of this matter, as Super Z has FAR more supporters than haters. I'm not sure what relevance the mayweather guys criminal record has to this case, possibly more cracker dun dun me rong evidence?
