Registered Dem Killed Trayvon


Meet registered Democrat and self-identified Hispanic American, George Zimmerman

The individual at the center of the controversial Trayvon Martin shooting is a registered Democrat.


George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a Democrat in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.


It is unclear whether he voted for President Barack Obama in 2008.


Some in the media have sought to blame Republican politicians and conservative activists for Martin’s death.


“[Republican politicians] reinforce and validate old stereotypes that associate the poor and welfare as criminal behavior with African-Americans and people of color, calling us lazy, undeserving recipients of public assistance. In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences,” said MSNBC political analyst and Democratic fundraiser Karen Finney.


According to the document, Zimmerman’s race is officially listed as Hispanic. The son of a white father and Peruvian mother, he has been described as a “white Hispanic” in most media reports.


Following the Feb. 26 fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a Sanford, Fla. gated community, Zimmerman has been the target of widespread outrage.


Zimmerman shot and killed Martin following a physical confrontation, but has yet to be charged with a crime. He says he acted in self-defense, a claim supported by the Sanford, Fla., Police Department investigating the case.


Protesters and activists led by professional racial justice advocates Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have suggested Martin’s killing was racially motivated, and have called for Zimmerman’s arrest.


“We want George Zimmerman in court with handcuffs behind his back,” Sharpton said last week.


Martin’s mother, Sabrina Fulton, has alleged that Zimmerman killed her son “because of the color of his skin.”


Craig Sonner, the attorney representing Zimmerman, has denied such allegations, noting that his client has acted as a mentor to a black single mother and her two children, and had helped them raise money for their all-black church.


For Zimmerman’s safety, the Free Beacon has redacted his address from the registration document. The New Black Panther Party has offered a $10,000 bounty for Zimmerman’s capture.

    His political affiliations are irrelevent! Either he will be indicted and forced to stand trial or he will be exonerated of any wrongdoing. Sit back and take a deep breath. Let the investigations proceed. There will be investigations by Grand Jury, the State of Flolrida and the U.S. Department of Justice. Justice will prevail!

    I don't care what his political leanings are. He was innocent and the jury spoke. The jurists were under a lot of pressure and I am proud of them for sticking to the facts instead of their emotions.

    One of the main differences I have seen on SH between the two parties is that if you are a republican you feel a need to justify everything a republican does.Democrats do not do that.You think if you point out that Zimmerman was a registered democrat we will defend him. Democrats and minorities are wanting justice for Martin so you feel an urge to jstify his actions. IF George Zimmerman were my biological brother I would want him arrested and jailed until he is judged in a court of law. But then again democrats believe that murder is murder regardless of who gets killed.

    I don't know what you are smoking but I'm sure Obama would like some. Sounds like something he would say with the teleprompter off. Total BS. Libs don't try to justify everything they do, they're too busy blaming everybody else. Dems and minorities don't want justice they want the sympathy vote. You would want your brother arrested until proven innocent. Sorry this is the US you are innocent until proven guilty here. Democrats believe murder is murder. Bullsh*t if they did they would be wanting justice for all the victims of black on black, black on white and any other murder, not just white or any other race on black.

    It matters not what party the man belongs to. It matters not what his race is. What matters was the lack of investigation. What matters is this young man was not doing anything, and the killer was following him, and no one knows what really happened. No one knows who approached who. From the calls, seems like Zimmerman approached him. Seems like all people want to do is make this about black, white, brown, asian, whatever. This is not about any of that, it is about justice for the young mans family. They did not feel that the investigation was properly conducted. Kids are killed everyday. We all know that. When black kids kill one another, it is tragic. When white kids kill one another, it is tragic. When kids beat up an Asian kid on tape, it is tragic. The violence in this society is tragic. I commend the parents of this young man for trying to have a proper and thorough investigation done in the death of their son. Any parent would want as much. I will say that I believe had the tables been turned, and Zimmerman was the dead person, no doubt, Martin would have been arrested. Justice seems to have different wheels when things are reversed.

    Follow the facts for just a minute, ok? Mr.Zimmerman was attacked from behind, knocked to the ground, had his nose broken, and was getting his head beat into the pavement by Trayvon...so, he shot him in self defense. I would have done the same thing. Quit being swayed by the Lame Stream Media, and the Rev's Jackson and Sharpton...they are Media Whores, along with the NBPP....

    You are entitiled to your opinion, and I am able to have my own. I tell you this, God knows the truth, and so does Zimmerman. I am being swayed by what I heard on tape, and what I have seen on tape. You are being swayed by your hatred of certain black (so called leaders) that you dislike. Well, I am not so crazy about them either, so you are wrong on that!

    I don't know anyone who cared what political party Zimmerman was affiliated with. We only care that the police took his word for the events the night Trayvon was killed instead of conducting a proper investigation. Could his daddy have helped him try to get this swept under the rug?

    Did George Zimmerman have help from his father, a retired judge, in clearing his name in three separate arrests?

    That’s the question that’s being asked now that more information on Trayvon Martin’s 28-year-old killer is being revealed. Robert Zimmerman, a former Orange County magistrate judge, recently wrote a letter to The Orlando Sentinel defending his son, who’s been dragged through the mud for shooting the unarmed 17-year-old last month. In the letter, the senior Zimmerman asks people not to jump to conclusions and insists that his son didn’t follow the young boy home as he walked through their gated community.

    “He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever. The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth. At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details ...

    “He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever. The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth. At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details of the event became public, and I hope that will be soon, everyone should be outraged by the treatment of George Zimmerman in the media,” wrote Robert Zimmerman.

    Now more info is being dug up on his “victimized” son through public records and revealing his checkered past.

    According to a records search on George, he was previously arrested for domestic violence, resisting an officer without violence and most shockingly, resisting an officer with violence — a felony charge that surely could have landed him in prison.

    All three of those arrests, however, were mysteriously closed with no semblance of charges for the Florida resident. So how was someone with a violent past including that of battery against an officer able to carry a 9 mm handgun? Maybe that’s a question Robert Zimmerman should answer …

    Your question would be valid, IF...Mr. Zimmerman might have been "Convicted" for those crimes, but....your own post does not say if Mr. Zimmerman's Father did, in actuality, assist in getting those charges dismissed or removed. Perhaps, as is often the case, these were charges while he was a minor? Most minor's records can be sealed because what they do as an adolescent doesn't have to follow them thru adulthood. Also, we don't know if the Police "took his word" about the events...supposedly Mr. Zimmerman had a broken nose, and contusions to the back of his head, (consistent with "eye witnesses" accounts), when they called 9-1-1 and stated "the man in the red sweatshirt was on his back, being beaten and screaming for help"...that man being Mr. Zimmerman. Heaven forbid a little thing like facts should get in the way....I'd have shot him too, if that was the actual situation. Remember, you do have the RIGHT to self defense if you feel your life is in grave danger, and obviously, Mr. Zimmerman did.

    Zimmerman wasn't a minor in any of those cases. The assault charges were dropped because he agreed to participate in pre-trial diversion programs. When the stalker stalkes the stalkee and the stalkee becomes afraid and fights back the stalker cannot claim self defense, i.e., "Help, the guy I was stalking is kicking my azz, so now I need to shoot him!.

    So f#cking what? 'If we can still answer', uh?

    Tell us, what is changed by whatever political party Zimmerman registered as?

    Could Zimmerman 'sense' which party Martin intended to register as when he turned 18? The same way Zimmerman could sense there was something 'not right' about that guy in the hoodie?

    I knew that Miami Heat basketball team was 'not right'.
