George Zimmerman sues Trayvon Martin’s family for $100m

George Zimmerman, the man acquitted for the 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin, is suing the family of the slain teenager for $100m, arguing ’false evidence’ was manufactured during his trial. Zimmerman was acquitted on all charges related to his shooting of Martin, 17. Zimmerman claimed he shot Martin in self-defense during a scuffle in Sanford. Zimmerman had faced charges of second-degree murder.

$100 million is a little steep but he was smeared as a racist without any proof so I think he deserves compensation. Refresher: He was on neighborhood watch, pursued a person in a hoodie that was looking into yards, and didn’t reach for his gun until Trayvon was pounding his head into the ground.

Haha. I mean I hope he gets something but 100mil is like asking a rock for a drink of water.

The entire fiasco around Zimmerman shows why we shouldn't trust the media. From trying to brush over the fact that Zimmerman is Latino, show pictures of Trayvon from when he was 15, and leaving out the the picturea of Zimmerman who was bruised and bloody. This case was clear cut self defense, Zimmerman shot Martin as he was getting his head bashed into a concrete sidewalk.

I saw it written in an earlier post "what an interesting way to sell a book" I think that might be hitting the nail right on the head. The conspiracy goes something like this. The lawyers get together decide on the book get it published create a fake lawsuit for free publicity. Zimmerman and Martin's family get a little money from the book and a settlement and the lawyers get a lot of money.
