Put Him Behind Bars –Not A Boxing Ring
Orlando Sentinel and other news sources report that another promoter has come forth to place George Zimmerman in the ring. Billionaire David Alki owns streaming service FilmOn.com. He told TMZ.com that he is working on obtaining the rights to a Zimmerman fight, promising that it will be “bloodier and more fierce than the other event would have been.”
Former promoter Damon Feldman is said to be selling the rights to the Zimmerman fight to Alki. Feldman purportedly received threats via Twitter, one saying, “Somebody should kill Damon Feldman’s son and ask him would he put his son’s killer in a celebrity boxing match.”
Alki has said that the opponent will not be DMX.
The Greek immigrant with a net worth of about $1.7 billion is trying to make the appeal to money in Trayvon’s name, saying that all proceeds will go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation. It is highly reasonable to believe that Trayvon Martin’s parents don’t want the killer of their son giving money to the Foundation. Those wanting to donate to the Foundation have and can donate without Zimmerman’s involvement. That in fact, David Alki can make a donation without seeking to gain profits that also pay the participants.
Alki owns a 16,200-square foot mansion in Beverly Hills; a mansion in Greece, a ski lodge in Switzerland and several properties in the United Kingdom.
Wikipedia says that David Alkiviades, “Alki” is the heir to the Coca-Cola Hellenic shipping and bottling company and digital media entrepreneur whose companies include FilmOn TV Networks, Channel 3 Dish Networks in California and Nevada, Channel 8 Los Angeles, KILM Channel 64 Los Angeles (formerly KHIZ), and Battlecam.com . He also does acting, having appeared in several films.
If Alki cannot see his disrespect for Trayvon’s legacy, then maybe boycotts against his businesses are in order.
Alki is already involved in litigation with CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox Broadcasting and their studios winning a temporary restraining order against FilmOn in November 2012 to prevent unlicensed use of their broadcast signals. In June 2013, Alki filed a countersuit against the four networks seeking a ruling that providing internet technology for receiving over-the-air broadcast signals at no charge does not violate broadcasters’ copyrights. Last year, Alki was held in contempt of court, and ordered to pay $1.6 million for failing to fulfill two conditions of a settlement agreement blocking FilmOn from re-transmitting local stations over the web.
His company, Battlecam.com, was mentioned in a lawsuit filed in Illinois, where a user of the site harassed another user by making false police reports.
This is what David Alki needs to realize — that George Zimmerman’s claim to fame was because he followed and killed an unarmed 17-year old. Had he not done that, America would not know of him. Two of the juror’s who acquitted him came out in public; one sentencing Zimmerman to lessons learned, and the other admitting that he was guilty but the law was read to her to say that the State had to prove intent.
While there were protests to arrest Zimmerman, White Supremacist websites launched their thugification of Trayvon Martin, and this continues today. That in fact, it has progressed with the use of racial derogatory language and a theory of a conspiracy known as the “Black Grievance Industry” by bloggers who stalk and extort other bloggers with threats of slander unless they report, solely, on black-on-black crimes or articles to control “feral Black youths.” To promote George Zimmerman is to promote White Supremacist ideology and the violations of law committed by them using Zimmerman as the means to express and promote those ideologies.
If David Alki really wants to help George Zimmerman, give him a job with one of his companies. Maybe he can help George get a job as a stunt man in movies. His portfolio shouldn’t take long to organize seeing that he already has at least four sets of mug shots.
