Arrest Made for Threatening George Zimmerman is a Hoax

The Epoch Times reports that a story that George Zimmerman got into an altercation with ex-NBA star Gilbert Arenas, and that Arenas was arrested, is fake.

The fake article was published on Empire Sports, which describes itself as “satire.”

Empire Sports has a disclaimer that says it publishes satirical articles, and uses invented names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized. 

“Former NBA star Gilbert Arenas was arrested Monday afternoon after a brief altercation with George Zimmerman as he attended a signing at a gun show in Orlando, Florida,” it reads.

Most people know that the gun show was on the weekend, and not on a Monday.  That should have clued them in to know that the report was at least not factual.

democratice undergroundAnother story intended as satire was published and apparently believed.  That story was published on Cream Bmp Daily, written by a comedian named CREAM, and said that Zimmerman accidentally shot and killed himself while reloading his gun.

Part of the problem, as I see it, is that people tweet out a comment with a link, and those reading the tweet do not read the link and then begin tweeting out the news contained in the comment.

The same is true for a photo that Zimmerman recently tweeted as proof that he mentored Black children.  That photo was not provided to the media nor presented by any of Zimmerman’s advocates pre-trial, nor during trial.  It only showed up after there was discussion on social media of the conflicting reports for what George did before leaving, and his reason for leaving his home on February 26, 2012. 

Robert Zimmerman Sr. said that George cooked dinner for Shellie and then they went to shop for grocery.  That questioned whether Shellie was in the truck with George when he saw and called non-emergency dispatch to report a “suspicious person.”

George Zimmerman himself contradicted his father’s comment, saying that after he and Shellie mentored the kids on Sundays, they went grocery shopping. 

After trial, Shellie Zimmerman interviewed with media saying that the Saturday before George killed Trayvon, she and George had an argument and she left and was staying at her dad’s and was at her dad’s that Sunday evening.

That makes it reasonable to believe that George recently tweeted the photo in effort to distract from the conflicting statements of what he did and why he left his house the evening of Sunday, February 26, 2012.   However, it goes a bit further than that.  In a pre-trial interview with Sean Hannity, George Zimmerman said he no regrets for leaving his truck to follow Trayvon, and no regrets for carrying a gun.  In fact, he said that it was “all God’s plan.”  In a recent interview with Chris Cuomo, George said that if he could go back to that night he would not have left his house.  George cannot truly regret leaving home to grocery shop, so his answer to Cuomo indicates that he left his home for another reason.   

George Zimmerman told Cuomo that the Department of Justice is still investigating whether he violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights.  The photo that George recently tweeted might come with another agenda and should not be distributed as any proof that George mentored Black kids.  It is self-serving and has not been corroborated neither verified by any unbiased source.

    Zimmernut is HOLLOW. He’s a cracked nut with nothing but a shell to show for his lack of existence on earth. Even the fruit held within was rotten once the shell was opened. This low life lives to do nothing but make up lies and try to get people to like him.

    Go to all the gun shows you want you fat, lying pig. You will be shunned from grace, and the devil will come to collect your soul.

    RIP Dear Trayvon.

      The river runs deep, and your song is played out,
      When you stand Up and sing for a gun totin creep,
      Who stalked and shot a black teenager down,
      Who did not realize he was in a sundown town.

      What would you do if a creepy ass cracker followed you,
      “He ran,” said George, who tells only the truth.
      “he didn’t run, he wasn’t afraid,”
      ” Fn coon, the ahole skipped away.”

      “I said I was following him, I really wasn’t,”
      “I just happened to be going the very same way,”
      Cause the Officer needed an address,
      Where I wouldn’t be at.
      I do not lie, that is a fact.

      Out of the bushes the kid appeared,
      No problem, me with “the gun,” I do not fear,
      He broke my nose and I fell back,
      I had to kill him, and that was that.

  11. Another one from Sanford Watch about Papa and Mama Zim’s lawsuit against Rosanne and ADDITIONAL LIES they uncovered.

    I just thought about something. Papa and Mama Zim filed their complaint in County Court for Seminole County, Florida. Doesn’t Rosanne reside in Hawaii? She can have the case moved to the federal district court in Hawaii on the doctrine of diversity. If not, she can have it moved to a federal district court in Florida on the same doctrine. In other words, there is diversity in the states of residence for the parties and that case belongs in the federal court.

    I hope that attorney Heil is familiar with federal rules and procedures, and admitted to practice before the federal district courts.

    I find the lawsuit flawed, first being saying that it was her tweet that caused them to flee their home when in fact they left weeks before the tweet. Also claiming that their home lost value. Fact is everyone in Florida who owned a home lost value over the past years and only recently have they started to increase in value. Their home is worth more then 1. when they bought it in 2002, 2. worth more than last year, 3. has same home value as similar homes in the same neighborhood. Zillow is a good source to see this.

        Agreed, but I went to Zillow to see what their home value is compared to others, when you find others in the neighborhood with the same square footage/bedrooms/bathrooms you will see that their home value is the same. There are quite a few homes in the neighborhood worth more but they have more square footage/bedrooms/baths. But it wouldn’t surprise me for them to think that their home should be worth just as much as the home next door when that one has a lot more.

      That’s not their allegations in the complaint and if they amended to include that, it would be inconsistent with their allegation that Rosanne’s tweet caused them to move due to threats. If they were in that position before she tweeted their address, then tweeting it caused them no further harm.

      • They would like everybody to believe Roseanne was the only person in the world who knew where they lived. I’m sure the neighbors, friends of theirs and Georges, probably people from their church, relatives, ect knew. Word gets around, and by the sounds of it, it already had if they had death threats prior to her tweet.

        The lost value in their house, well so did everybody else in the usa. If they want to sell it in the future they might have a hard time, their name would be disclosed, and personally, I wouldn’t buy it knowing killer GZ lived there or any of them. You have to disclose to the buyer if someone has died there, either of those I’d say no go. They have only themselves to blame. When you support your son going to a gun show to meet and greet and sign autographs, it’s nothing I would be proud of.

          Yes. According to their complaint, it was the media who first came to their house. All a reporter had to do was obtain the public record for property owned by the Zimmerman’s. Papa Zim could have stepped outside with cameras rolling and said that George was not there and he asks for privacy for him and his family. Rather than doing that, he started advocating for George based on “George said,” and then crying about how their lives were changed by the media. No Papa Zim. Your life was changed because of George’s actions.

    “It alleges that Barr’s tweets forced them to go into hiding. They are seeking unspecified damages, accusing her of intentionally inflicting emotional distress.

    But that date – March 29, 2012 – does not jibe with what Robert Zimmerman Sr. told the Orlando Sentinel in a March 15, 2012, interview. On that day, he said that he and his wife had already moved out of their home and gone into hiding because of death threats.”

  15. That’s incorrect. A Frye hearing is a test on the general acceptance to determine the admissibility of scientific evidence. It provides that expert opinion based on a scientific technique is admissible only where the technique is generally accepted as reliable in the relevant scientific community.

    At Zimmerman’s Frye hearing, witnesses for the defense said they could not tell who was screaming for help in the background of the 911 call. Witnesses for the prosecution said that they could. Then, the defense brought on witnesses who argued against the techniques used by the prosecution’s expert.

Papa and Mama Zim’s complaint requests relief in no specified amount — just in excess of $15K to let the court know it is not a small claims case.

    Now, I wonder who D.P. will tweet and ask what it means when legal counsel fails to include a jurisdictional statement in a complaint?

    And while you’re at it, D.P., ask a lawyer what “mandate” means. It does not apply statutes.

      They lurk here and on Leatherman’s. If it wasn’t for our blogs, they would have little to comment about on Nettle’s and nothing to write about for their blog posts. When bloggers demonstrate that their only motivation for blogging is to denigrate other bloggers, they give evidence that their main interest is in other bloggers, and not the subject matter.
