George Zimmerman Is Now Selling Autographs To Fund His Defense In Trayvon Martin Case

A Zimmerman autograph could be yours for a donation to his defense fund.
Ever wanted to own the autograph of a man who gunned down an unarmed teenager guilty of nothing more than being black in his own neighborhood? If you agree with that sentiment, probably not. But the legion who think George Zimmerman is a Second Amendment hero who bravely killed a violent intruder to his central Florida suburb are in luck today!

Zimmerman is now mailing autographed cards to anyone who donates cash to help him fight murder charges over Miami teenager Trayvon Martin's shooting death.


Zimmerman announced the autograph scheme on his website, zgdefensefund.com, while revealing that the once flush account -- which had collected $140,000 -- has now dwindled to under $15,000.

"Currently, the balance of the George Zimmerman Defense Fund is at its lowest, and new funds must be raised to support George's living expenses and legal costs," the site says.

Zimmerman promises to send a handsome signed card -- conveniently mailed in an blank envelope with "no reference" to Zimmerman -- for sending him some cash.

The accused murderer landed in seriously hot water over the defense fund in April, when a judge first learned of its existence during a bond hearing. By then, Zimmerman had already burned through $36,000 -- much of which was raised after a sympathetic hearing on Sean Hannity's Fox News Show -- to pay off credit cards and cell phone bills.

The judge ordered Zimmerman taken off house arrest and held on $1 million bond; his wife also faced perjury charges.

Now, Zimmerman promises the fund will be "independently managed," and that the cash will go first to his living expenses, then to his defense costs, with only any leftover money going to his lawyers.

The 29-year-old Sanford resident shot and killed Martin, a Miami Gardens teen staying with his father in the town, on Feb. 29. Zimmerman has used Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law to justify the killing, despite the fact that Martin was armed only with snacks.

dear new pen pal, my name is  George Zimmerman , i'm 30 years old, and I've been in prison for three months. In this heck hole I've had my behind kicked so many times, my behind has foot prints in it. But you know what? I think I'm going to make it. At least I know it cant possibly get any worse. Anyway... thanks for listening. I'll have to sign off now, as someone is pising on me. Your new friend; George

Martin didn't get shot because he was carrying Skittles.

He got shot because he followed Zimmerman back to his truck, jumped on the guy, and started beating on him. He slammed Zimmermans head into the pavement putting a 6 inch gash in Zimmermans skull, and broke Zimmerman's nose

Bad move for Martin, who called himself the "NoLimitNigga", and tweeted that he wanted to "kiII em all"

Zimmerman had a gun.

Martin jumped on the wrong guy and got shot.

The End.

Oh, yeah because no one can harm someone with their fists. And he must have shot him because he was Black. Never the possibility that he shot him because he was assaulted. Usual yellow journalism making claims without proof.
