George Zimmerman Chased Out of Miami After $10,000 Bounty Put on His Head

George Zimmerman, who recently went on another publicity tour, seems to love media attention, but he couldn’t have enjoyed the Zimmerman_interviewattention he received from an angry crowd in Miami last week.

TMZ reports that while Zimmerman was in town to record an interview with Fusion, he decided to take a trip to the beach with his girlfriend, her child and brother. While Zimmerman was at the beach, however, he was recognized and harassed by residents, at least one of whom placed a $10,000 bounty on his head.

During Zimmerman’s Fusion interview, he said he feels like he is the victim in this case.

“I feel the people in power, like Gov. Scott, cowered to political pressure and shredded the Constitution, and spit in the face of all our fallen soldiers, and went through with a malicious prosecution, simply for political pressure,” he said.

The African-American reporter who interviewed Zimmerman, Derrick Ashong, compared interviewing Zimmerman to interviewing any other notorious or infamous person.

“I interviewed George Zimmerman for the same reasons journalists have interviewed Charles Manson, that Barbara Walters interviewed Muammar Ghaddafi and Fidel Castro. I sat down across from him and politely asked the questions I wanted answers to. And maybe I simply wanted to look in the eyes of the killer and see if I could perceive an ounce of remorse. I found none. Instead, I saw a man convinced that indeed, he is the victim. And, perhaps, even a hero,” he explained.

However, Ashong has made no qualms about having strong feelings about the case.

“I believe Zimmerman got away with murder, aided and abetted by a justice system that does not have equal regard for the lives of black and minority youth,” he said.

    I would be delighted if someone kidnapped him and put him through so much torture that he would commit suicide.

      I second that JB…

      Sometimes death is too good for evil-a$$ demonic donkey’s like Zimmerman… He has created some seeds his a$$ can’t swallow, and so have many many others. We will all see his rewards soon. God may not allow us to see it all but he will let us see somethings.

      Zimmerman the filthy nasty low-life crawlin rattlesnake heathen a$$ demon from the deep dark black pitts of h*ll….

    It is really unfortunate that so many black Americans are misinformed about the Zimmerman/Martin issue. They were angry about their lot in life in America before Martin was shot and this issue is nothing more than an excuse to vent the anger. They need to find ways to overcome the anger instead of chasing after a non-issue. Based on the facts of the case Martin was judged to be a potential murderer. Based in the facts of the case he was about to murder Zimmerman. What did Zimmerman do to justify Martin killing him?

    The facts resulted in a justifiable homicide verdict by the jury. We as a nation do need to find ways to overcome the justifiable anger about black Americans’ lot in life but going after someone that justifiably saved his own life by shooting Martin isn’t helping get anything positive done. How can we develop a movement toward improving black Americans’ lot in live when so many are being unreasonable about issues that should not be issues? Joseph L.

      “I believe Zimmerman got away with murder, aided and abetted by a justice system that does not have equal regard for the lives of black and minority youth,” he said… The foregoing is the bottom line statement of the article, in which you responded to. First & foremost I totally agree with that statement ! You claim that the jury rendered it’s verdict based on the “facts” in the case. The TRUTH of the matter is if you, I or anyone else that has an opinion about the case, that’s all it is “an opinion” because you, I or anyone else wasn’t there to have an eye witness account of what actually did happen. However, what we do know is the 911 operator specifically told GZ that he did not have to follow Trayvon Martin, but yet he did which led to Trayvon’s death. We also know that the “Neighborhood Watch Association’s” guidelines or rules specifically state: “none of it’s ‘volunteers’ are allowed to carry any type of gun or weapon” while GZ had a loaded gun, which led to the death of Trayvon Martin. Based on the 2 facts, I just revealed GZ should have been found guilty, as charged. It appears to me that the “real facts” were totally overlooked. Lastly, it’s obvious to me that the facts you mentioned were, beyond any doubt, “tainted.”

        What do you mean you believe Zimmerman got away with murder? There’s no belief in this.
        Plain and simple;(HE DID).

      Really Mr Bass….typical response from a man whose enjoys the benefits that his pigmentation allows him! InsteAd of telling black people what they should or shouldn’t do…you just need to STF up and continue to enjoy the benefits that this country allows you simply because of the color of your skin. Take your weak ass commentary and tell those who are all enjoying the same benefits such as yourself and tell them about finding a way to learn to live and be fair with a segment of people who you never learned to love. Improve on that Mr Bass and then maybe your comment will be relevant! You use the word “they” when commenting on blacks….so my assumption is that you’re white.

    Joseph Bass, you are not an educated man. Do you think this is the first this has happened. The response of Black people is appropriate and it is sad that your tone is such. I think you have been brainwashed to see Blacks in a negative way.

    Who are you educating. I feel sad for them. Do you think Black people are venting? A child was killed. It is sad that you don’t care about the lives and well being of Black people. It is sad that you think Zimmerman’s verdit was just.

    It appears that you have accepted the taking of “innocent blood” and show no emotion, show no anger and show no concern.

    I hope you meet Zimmerman one day. He might see you as suspicious.

    I don’t think Zimmerman is innocent. He KILLED a 17 year old who was packing nothing more dangerous than Skittles and Iced Tea. He was on his way back from a convenience store to his family with some snacks. He’s not guilty of anything more serious than Walking While Black!

    Joe Bass, your cannt be that naive. One thing we all know also that the Florida judicial system took everything that GZ said as truth; which we know is a lie. If it looks like a cover up, walks like a cover up and smell like a cover up. Then it’s a cover up. Like one lawyer said on TV, the other day what if black men went around shooting white teenagers. I think the case would have a different ending. We don’t care what color or ethnicity GZ, is wrong is still wrong!!! Stick that in your pipe & smoke that!!!

    When are the writers and heads of this website going to stop wolfing and whining, and speak out boldly and angrily about the justice system in Florida, and that sorry thing who heads up the Department of Justice in Washington, whose name is Eric Holder, who is of the same weak and timid cloth as this weak president that we have. AND YES I AM BLACK, and have been for 75 years now, who loves my black race, but can’t stand weak, tap dancers, the likes of Holder and Obama, who have not done even as much of behalf of black people, as a few of the white presidents over the years. And that is sad and sickening. I’ve been writing and asking for them to do some justice for O.J. Simpson, who is only in prison because of the death of that little table-waiting Hebrew, Ronald Goldman, who was killed, along with Nicole Simpson. And the Jews are mad at O.J. because he was acquitted, and got that Jewish judge and all white jury in Las Vegas to send him to prison, in that racist Nevada. No one has EVER gotten 33 YEARS for trying to merely get their own stolen items back. But Obama and Holder are not going to do anything, because they are controlled by Hebrews who are in charge of the White House. — Rev. George Brooks

    In our legal system the prosecution and the defense present their case. This was done in the Zimmerman trial. People knowledgeable of legal issues reported the prosecution’s case was seriously weak. The day before the verdict was announced the ABC News legal analyst stated on the 6:30 pm national news that the jury would find Zimmerman innocent based on the evidence present in the trial. And that is what happened. The jury believed the defense case that found Martin was about to kill Zimmerman by banging his head on the sidewalk. That is what justifiable homicide is about. The jury believed Zimmerman shot Martin to save his own life.

    And how is this situation a racial issue? Zimmerman identifies as Hispanic and his grandfather through his mother was a black man. Fifty years ago Zimmerman would not have been served in a restaurant in segregated Florida. We have a lot of negative issues in our nation that need addressing, but harping on what should be a non-issue isn’t being helpful. How can we solve our real problems if a lot of people are unwilling to listen to the reasonable facts as presented to the jury and understand why they ruled as they did? Joseph L.

    This George Zimmerman fellow has the audacity to go to miami where Trayon Martin resided. By being noticeable, he deserves being ousted in Miami. He’s going to get exactly what he deserve someday day. Watch, wait and see.

    I remembered Florida was one of the most vacation states in the country. With this “Stand Your Ground Law” its worse than when I grew up in south in the 60s. I thought the state of Texas was bad, which it is, electrocution of innocent black people who done nothing wrong or their charges were very minor that some went to prison for years for a misdemeanor. Florida has now became a nickname like Texas; “The Predator State.”

    Trevor Dooley does exactly what George Zimmerman did. Trevor Dooley gets 8 yrs prison 10 yrs probation. Why the difference? Trevor Dooley is BLAC. The guy he shot and killed David James was WHITE. No self defense success for black Trevor.
