George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchmen who alleged shot and killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, has created a website in order to solicit donations "only for living expenses and legal defense."
Therealgeorgezimmerman.com is blanketed with an American flag and reveals an essay written by Zimmerman on its homepage, "On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website's sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries."
George Zimmerman also has “The Facts” portion of the website that basically states he cannot discuss what happened on that day and is “allowing law enforcement to proceed with their investigation unhindered.” He also placed what could be the most interesting section titled “My Race,” only containing two quotes, "‘The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion’-Thomas Paine and ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men to do nothing,’ -Edmund Burke.”
“You know he says that he experienced a life-altering event. Well, Trayvon Martin experienced a life-ending event,” said Benjamin Crump an attorney for Trayvon Martin’s family on Good Morning America.
George Zimmerman admits to shooting Trayvon Martin but that he did so in self-defense. The case has caused a national uproar calling for Zimmerman’s arrest. Special prosecutor Angela Corey has decided not to take the case before a grand jury.
