Once again George Zimmerman’s father hit the airwaves in defense of his son George.
Zimmerman Sr. appeared on the Sean Hannity show last night and said that George handed out fliers at black Sanford churches a year ago because he was outraged that a white police lieutenant's son was captured on video assaulting a homeless black man.
According to the elder Zimmerman, George would hand out the fliers urging blacks to go to a Sanford City Commission meeting to protest and demand that the police chief be held accountable.
In 2010, Sherman Ware, who is black, was standing on the sidewalk when Justin Collison, who is white and the son of a Sanford police lieutenant, came rushing out of a Sanford bar Dec. 4th and punched him in the back of the head.
The blow knocked Ware out and sent him to the hospital; the incident was captured on video by a bystander with a cell phone, and after the police saw the video that night, they did not arrest Collison.
The video went viral across Orlando news organizations, which prompted calls for Collison's arrest and the ouster of Sanford Police Chief Brian Tooley.
On Jan. 2 George, according to his father, handed out fliers at black Sanford churches, urging them to go to City Hall and demand that Tooley be held accountable.
The following day the commission voted to oust the police chief, and Collison was arrested. He would later receive a reduced charge of battery and sentenced to a year of probation.
Ironically, Sherman Ware's sister Tonetta Foster attended a Trayvon rally on March 19 at the Seminole Criminal courthouse, during which protesters called for Zimmerman's arrest.
On February 26th, 17-year-old Trayvon was shot and killed by neighborhood watchman, 28-year-old George Zimmerman. Trayvon was returning from a local 7-Eleven after buying a bag of Skittles and iced tea.
He was then spotted by Zimmerman while returning to his father's girlfriend's home inside their gated community. Zimmerman called 911, explaining that Trayvon, who was wearing a hoodie at the time, a pair of blue jeans, and red/white sneakers, looked suspicious.
Zimmerman pursued Trayvon even after he was told not to by the 911 dispatcher.
When Zimmerman approached Trayvon, the two got into a scuffle, resulting in Trayvon taking a bullet to the chest at point blank range.
Zimmerman claimed that he shot Trayvon on grounds of self-defense, although Trayvon was unarmed.
Since the murder of Trayvon, the entire nation has expressed outrage.
George Zimmerman has not been arrested yet, as more evidence comes forward proving that his claims of self-defense were false.
