Today would have been Trayvon Martin’s 19th birthday. Martin, however, is not celebrating that birthday today because he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman nearly two years ago in February 2012. Today is also the day that boxing promoter Damon Feldman has tastelessly and unapologetically chosen to announce that rapper DMX has been selected to fight Zimmerman in a “celebrity” boxing match, the scheduled date for which will be announced next week. But I hope that the whole disgusting affair is canceled before that announcement can be made. Keep reading »
Refuse! I mean, I believe that the final bid on this ugly piece shit painted by a piece of shit (That’s its unofficial name, “Piece of Shit” by George “Piece of Shit” Zimmerman) was indeed $100,099.99, but I cannot accept that this bid is legitimate. It has to be a joke. Because who would buy it? I know tons of completely terrible people (sorry, but you are) donated to his defense fund when he was on trial for the death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, but surely no one would fork over over $100K for this garbage. I mean, the dude made a Trayvon joke in the eBay listing for fuck’s sake:
My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-)

Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, the mother and father of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Black teen who was killed by self-appointed neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman last year, are meeting with publishers about writing a book about their son. Their book will give a full picture of their son in the wake of a trial that attempted to paint him as a thug who must have had it coming the night he was killed. (Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in July and has been anything but an upstanding citizen since.) The meetings, which took place last week, were described as “somber and moving” by publishers who spoke to The New York Times. The book is expected to reveal the turmoil the couple experienced before, during and after the trial, and, according to one publishing executive who met with Martin and Fulton, likely touch on social issues of race and religion. Heartbreaking though the subject may be, I look forward to reading this book when it’s on shelves. [NYTimes]
This summer, George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of Travyon Martin, a 17-year-old unarmed Black teenager. Last month, Zimmerman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, battery domestic violence, and criminal mischief after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend. Yesterday, Zimmerman submitted a signed affadavit from Samantha Scheibe stating she does not want him charged and requesting contact with each other.
Scheibe called 911 outside her Florida home after an argument with Zimmeran during which she asked him to leave. He allegedly pointed a shotgun at her “for a minute,” smashed a table, and then shoved her out her front door and barricaded it with furniture. She can be heard on the call yelling at him while some of this is allegedly happening. (He made a 911 call of his own while she was talking to police, claiming Scheibe was “going crazy on me.”) Scheibe also told police that Zimmerman had choked her during an argument recently, but she had not reported it. Zimmerman was released on bail under the condition that he not possess any weapons. Keep reading »
“Sources” connected to George Zimmerman, the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted this summer of murdering unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, say his girlfriend is lying about the circumstances of his domestic abuse arrest on Monday.
Samantha Scheibe called 911 on Monday after Zimmerman allegedly smashed furniture in her house and pointed a shotgun at her. On the 911 call, you can hear Scheibe as she is being hustled outside her house in Apopka, Florida, by Zimmerman, who apparently locked the door behind her so she couldn’t get back in. He was charged with aggravated assault, domestic violence battery and criminal mischief.
However, through TMZ, Zimmerman’s sources are claiming that Scheibe is making all this up because Zimmerman tried to break up with her. The sources claim she concocted a possibly-fake pregnancy to keep him around and when that didn’t work, she made up the domestic violence. You know, as “revenge.” Keep reading »
George Zimmerman is a free man (for now). The man who killed unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was released from a Florida jail on a $9,000 bond today after yesterday’s arrest. Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault, battery domestic violence, and criminal mischief after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, and shoved her out of her house. (You can listen to her 911 call here.)
