Drop the George Zimmerman fight match enough is enough.
George Zimmerman is not a celebrity he was acquitted in the February 2012 shooting death of Trayvon, an unarmed African American 17-year-old. He claimed Florida’s stand your ground law as defense for killing an unarmed 5-foot-11 teenage boy who weighed 158lbs but today, almost two years after the trial Zimmerman says he wants to celebrity box for pay: “Boxing isn’t new to me. It’s something I had picked up well before the incident and it’s something that I liked, I enjoyed, and I kept up with it and I was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight and get a healthy lifestyle,” he told Radar. “So it’s not a new hobby, it’s something I have been doing and wanting to pursue to maintain a healthy lifestyle.” During the trial Zimmerman claimed he screamed for help and his only defense was to shoot through the heart a 5'11'' 158 pound 17-year-old who had no weapon because he sucker punched him? Now, George has agreed to box for pay and fight anyone? There is something WRONG with this picture. Instead of going away, this man is rubbing his freedom in the face of mourning parents and those deeply affected by this murder by painting pictures that seemingly taunt the justice system and those that believe he got away with murder and now this? We must stop this fight from happening. This is a blatant show of disrespect and nothing positive or righteous would come from such a stunt. Please sign this petition to stop George Zimmerman and stop this madness. George Zimmerman should not profit from his "celebrity" status due to killing an unarmed 17 year old. This all just seems like a slap in the face of the justice system, Trayvon's mourning family, as well as a mourning nation of young black men who feel like we could have easily been his target that night.
