GTFOHWTBS! If you believe George Zimmerman’s mom he’s just some innocent man who was defending his home. Are you buying it?
Via Daily Mail:
Gladys Zimmerman published an open letter today, the one year anniversary of prosecutors arresting George Zimmerman for second-degree murder.
In it, she thanks supporters who helped the family when they were forced into hiding after receiving numerous death threats.
She writes that Zimmerman’s June 10 trial will ‘confirm’ the truth about the February 26, 2012 shooting that left the unarmed 17-year-old Martin dead.
‘April 11 2012 will be forever remembered by the Zimmerman family as the day the justice system failed us as Americans, and as a consequence an innocent man was arrested for a crime he did not commit, solely to placate the masses,’ she said.
She later adds: ‘There was absolutely no justifiable reason my son should have been charged for a crime he didn’t commit and there was no just reason he should find himself incarcerated either.’
Zimmerman’s family has long said he is a victim of media manipulation and spin. They say the evidence has been clear all along that Zimmerman acted in self defense when he shot Martin once in the chest, killing him during a struggle.
Gladys Zimmerman, who worked nearly three decades as a court clerk in Virginia, has never appeared publicly to speak about her son.
She told News 13 in Orlando in a phone interview that she still has faith in the justice system, despite the charges against her son.
Still, she warned that her son must be judged by an impartial jury.
‘It is imperative now more than ever that George receive fair treatment by the judicial system, as this is the quintessential birthright of every American,’ she wrote.
She blamed news media for spinning the story about the Martin shooting and convincing the public that her son was a murderer.
‘The media, with the help of social media made it their prerogative to judge and sentence George before and after his arrest,’ she wrote.
Trayvon was unarmed and Zimmerman didn’t want to fight a fair one after chasing him around the neighborhood. What lies is this woman even talking about?
