Cancel George Zimmerman’s Fake (Celebrity) Boxing Match
“Make a living.” Those words were spoken by Frank Taaffe Wednesday night on Nancy Grace’s program in response to her saying that George Zimmerman’s celebrity boxing match is disrespectful.
People who make a living by killing another human are called assassins, not celebrities.
Here is a recap of George Zimmerman’s living before he killed Trayvon Martin, while awaiting trial, and since his acquittal.
In August 2009, while in Kohl’s, George called the police on his Landlord, saying that the Landlord was trying to take his money for rent. George told the police that the house was in foreclosure and he didn’t have to pay rent. Over two years later, George was living in that same residence on February 26, 2012, the day he killed Trayvon Martin.
George filed a lawsuit against Aames for unpaid wages. He agreed to pay attorney fees and costs from any money awarded to him in the case. Aames subsequently filed bankruptcy. After months of his attorney going to one court to let that court know what was happening in the bankruptcy court, in April 2012, his attorney reported to the court that without his knowledge, Aames bankruptcy trustee sent a check to George in July 2011. George received a bit more than $18,000, signed and cashed that check without paying fees and costs. That document was filed with the court the Friday before George was arrested and charged with murdering Trayvon Martin.
In December 2011, George had a (non) graduation party and called the police because he refused to pay a man serving at the party.
This is the same man who, right after leaving the police station the morning of February 27, 2012, abandoned his home and his job and moved in with Mark and Sondra Osterman.
Seems as if George Zimmerman made his living by exploiting others.
When he was arrested, and people donated money to him through a PayPal account, George sat in jail orchestrating and instructing his wife, Shellie, on transferring the money and paying approximately $36,000 in debts that occurred before the evening of February 26, 2012, the day that he killed Trayvon Martin. It included paying off consumer credit cards, car payments, and rent arrearage. George took advantage of the kindness of others.
Having paid his debts and transferred money to his wife’s and sister’s accounts, and $10,000 in a safety-deposit box along with his valid passport, George Zimmerman sat in court while his wife misrepresented her knowledge of the money. The evidence of their bank accounts and phone calls resulted in the court revoking George’s bond, the Honorable Judge Lester saying that if not but for the fact that he ordered GPS tracking of George, that he would have left the country with over $135,000 of other people’s money. Shellie Zimmerman was charged with perjury and when she came to court to enter a plea agreement, George was not there.
Approximately eight (8) months after his arrest, George Zimmerman was sued by the security company that had provided him with 24/7 security and that he failed to pay, owing them approximately $28,000. One of his defense attorneys, Mark O’Mara, and Shellie Zimmerman, settled that case with the security firm. George did not participate in the settlement.
For the year and three months that he awaited and went through trial, George existed off other people’s money. During that time, we saw George Zimmerman appear in court weighing a hundred pounds more than he weighed when he killed Trayvon Martin, all the while, not making a living.
After his acquittal, George Zimmerman acquired an arsenal of guns and ammunition, all without making a living.
After entering a plea agreement on the charge of perjury, Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce, but was only able to serve George with the papers while he was in jail for allegedly threatening his live-in girlfriend with a gun.
Now, George Zimmerman wants to make a living off being known as the man who called police to report a “suspicious” person in his “late teens” that he followed in his truck, then on foot after that “suspicious” person ran from him. George Zimmerman wants to make a living for pinning that person’s arm, and taking careful aim, while firing a hollow point bullet into his 17 year-old heart.
George Zimmerman wants to make a living for killing an unarmed teen that, if not but for the fact that he left his vehicle and followed, the two would not have come into physical contact.
George Zimmerman wants to make a living off his defense attorneys arguing head injuries purportedly caused by Trayvon Martin, in spite of George saying he had removed his head off the sidewalk.
We came to know that George is a faker, a small-time con artist, an adulterer, and a copycat painter because he killed Trayvon Martin.
Think Progress reports that celebrity boxing matches are faked. They are choreographed. In 2012, Damon Feldman, the fight’s promoter, stated:
“It’s to the point where there’s no chance of anybody getting really hurt. It’s entertainment,” Feldman said. “Everyone’s told, and they have to sign a paper beforehand, knowing they have to do it as entertainment or we can’t let them do the matches. The worst thing that ever happened at my events was a bloody nose.”
As someone who participates on this blog commented, George Zimmerman used a bloody nose as part of his defense for killing Trayvon Martin.
Why hasn’t Feldman promoted a celebrity boxing match with Casey Anthony? He could easily arrange it on pay-for-view in Arizona with Jodi Arias.
Why doesn’t Damon Feldman exploit the deaths of Travis Alexander and Caylee Anthony?
Why hasn’t Feldman promoted a celebrity boxing match with Ramos and Cincenelli and exploit the death of Kelly Thomas? Come on, America has seen their handiwork so why not let America see what they can do to each other?
The answer is, because Feldman and Zimmerman want to take advantage of racial tensions by exploiting the tragic death of Trayvon Martin.
There are only two types of individuals who would want to see George in a celebrity boxing match – those who want to see him get his butt kicked as satisfaction for the jury not convicting, and those who want to see his opponent get his butt kicked as satisfaction for the jury acquitting. Damon Feldman seeks to exploit both sides, and George walks away with a piece of the action in which he promises to donate $20,000 to an un-named animal rescue organization. Sounds as though George had already negotiated a purse for more than $20,000 in order for him to decide that amount would go to an un-named charity.
Well, at least the animals don’t have a choice over how they get fed, but it should make George Zimmerman sick to know that he was fed by the money of others for over a year because he decided to get out of his truck and follow an unarmed 17-year old who ran from him.
George Zimmerman’s celebrity boxing match is not only disrespectful to Trayvon and Trayvon’s family, but disrespectful to all Americans, no matter if they believe that the jury in Zimmerman’s case decided right or wrong. It’s a slap in the face of the judicial system because juries do not acquit so that defendants can make a living based on the actions that placed them in that system. It is disrespectful to the sport of professional boxing.
If Feldman had any integrity remaining after he last got into trouble for celebrity boxing matches, he has lost every ounce of it now.
Several petitions have started to stop the match. The one gaining the most signatures is posted on change.org. You can access it by clicking here.
