George Zimmerman, the Florida man who claims he shot and killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense, has set up a personal website to collect money for his legal expenses, his attorneys told NBC News on Monday.

Several sites purporting to raise money for Zimmerman, 28, have popped up since he shot Martin, 17, on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., but "I cannot attest to the validity of these other websites," Zimmerman writes on therealgeorgezimmerman.com.

Attorneys confirmed to NBC News that the site, which domain records show was created Sunday, is real and is operated by Zimmerman himself. It solicits donations through PayPal with a promise that "any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment."

I just tried to check the site and received a 503 Error (Busy Server), not surprising.


Access to the site was hit or miss as it appeared to be having trouble handling a heavy stream of visitors after msnbc.com's initial report Monday afternoon. It wasn't known whether any of those visitors had used the provided link to make a donation.


My attempt was merely curiosity, as someone in the field of IT I was curious to see how this site he is maintaining looked, morbid curiosity perhaps, but nonetheless.

Here is the link for those that are just as curious for their own reasons.

I have very little to say otherwise regarding this topic, however I felt it was worthy of the on-going discussions. I am wondering if there is a comment section on his site, moderated if so, but probably not at all.

It makes me wonder if anti-white hackers are hacking those sites to prevent Zimmerman from getting any kind of support.

I'm sorry, but regardless of the situation, everybody does deserve a trial and a defense. This guilty no matter what is sheer utter nonsense.

I hope none of you guys have to go through it, but I fear that's the only way to truly understand how wrong guilty no matter what truly is. Maybe if you pro-guilty no matter what guys went through this it might change your mind about trying people in the public eyes.

Well I managed to get through, here's a screenshot of the main page:



Thumbnail to picture for mobile users

For those interested, here are the individual links to the sections listed on the upper left of the Main Menu:

Facts
My Race
Album

I omitted the Contact link and the Paypal link, I figure if you want to do that, you can go to the site itself. Didn't want anyone linking to those two from ATS, call it a precautionary measure. It's your right to Contact him or Donate to him, but do that on your own if that is your desire.

I thought this was interesting, RE: the "My Race" link, this is all that is there, accompanied again of course by the quote on the Home page and the Paypal link...


My Race

"The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion." - Thomas Paine


Make what you will of that.

Well good if the kids mommy can sell his name for profit I suppose helping an innocent man is worth a few bucks

I checked out the website.

At the bottom he included the quote:

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing


Supposedly this quote by Edmund Burke referes to: "When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."

I, for one, believe this whole Trayvon Martin thing is a hoax. If i'm right, that means this website is fake and the quote may be a clue.

So is Zimmerman in Arizona? Hes hosting the site from the same place ATS is hosted. I guess he wants to be close to the border in case he has to make a run for it.

Arizona, in this case, is merely the location of the site registrar company GoDaddy. He could be anywhere and register a website. I am guessing he is somewhere under the protection of authorities, probably still in, or very near Seffner County.

Support him for doing what??

Killing an unarmed kid?

Christ, Zimmerman does not know how to fist fight?

Zimmerman lost his "stand your ground" defense as soon as he exited his vehicle and began his pursuit of a n innocent young man.

How nice of him to feature a picture of a black cultural center in his album, too bad bout the defacing of it with long live Zimmerman though.

Pops, why are you so sure that George Zimmerman is an innocent man? It strikes me as strange, the level of obsession you display over this case. I've seen posts of yours that are perfectly reasonable, but thats always when you're not posting about anything which could possibly in any way be related to the Martin/Zimmerman case, Which is very rare.

You're capable of being a reasonable, straight thinking kind of fella. But when it comes to this case, all that's out the window and it's all sensationalism, caps lock and calling an alleged killer 'brother' and your 'homie,'

I don't think ZImmerman did anything racist. I do, however, think he did a series of stupid things, which led to the death of an unarmed man 10 years his junior. A High School studen with his entire life ahead of him, who you would be happy to dismiss as a thug who happened to be black, talking through a neighbourhood where young black men very rarely venture.
