If Trayvon's mother can try to make money off of this mess, then why can't the guy who was found innocent by a duly appointed jury of his peers?
It is amazing how quickly people froth at the mouth the moment George Zimmerman is mentioned.
So the guy is selling a crappy painting, and someone bid $100k on it; big deal.
The posts comparing Zimmerman to Charles Manson are ridiculous to point of not even warranting mention, and all of the hatred directed at this guy is
extremely ignorant, especially for ATS.
Ever since the trial, the media has done nothing but make attempts to destroy this guy; highlighting his being pulled over for speeding, and domestic
issues. Don't even try to tell me there isn't some kind of conspiracy against him.
Thanks to the relentless whipping up of controversy by the media, this guy is being hunted like he's a fugitive, and it isn't right.
The man was found innocent; that is all, end of story. Adapt and move on.
As a side note, I can hardly see how this qualifies as newsworthy (or thread-worthy) in the least; I've sold 15 books so far this month, and I'm
innocent of murder as well, anyone want to report on that? No? I didn't think so.
I'd like to point out that I would have no issues with someone reporting or starting a thread about my book sales, though; I could use the exposure.
