Woman Harassed by Death Threats After Zimmerman Verdict

Woman Harassed by Death Threats After Zimmerman Verdict

8:20AM Monday July 22, 2013

WINTER PARK, Fla.) -- Lori Tankel's life has been a living hell since a jury acquitted George Zimmerman of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Although she wasn't remotely connected to the case, Tankel, of Winter Park, Fla., has received numerous death threats since the verdict.

It seems her phone number is one digit away from the number Zimmerman used to make his call to police just before he fatally shot Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.

That call and the phone number were played repeatedly during the trial, and Tankel says someone posted her number online thinking it was his.

Right after the verdict, Tankel said her phone began to "blow up" with calls that essentially said, "We're going to kill you, we're going to get you, watch your back."

How many whites will have to be beaten or die to “avenge” Martin’s death?

“So—change your number, lady!”

If you read the article you would have seen:

“Meanwhile, Tankel said the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office was little help because “they were averaging 400 death threats per minute on social media outlets and so what I was getting was just a drop in the bucket.”

Tankel has changed her phone number to avoid further harassment.”

How many "trayvons" will have to die before Holder's People get a clue that Americans are fed up with their crap, and Americans are armed?

Cannot these calls be traced and charged under federal phone usage laws?

So not only are these people evil enough to issue death threats, they are too stupid to even dial the number correctly.

Ugh.

“Cannot these calls be traced and charged under federal phone usage laws?”.........

Since these are “federal crimes”, do you think for one minute Holder would assign one of his own people to trace those calls? Ain’t gonna happen!

Most likely, and they'll prosecute it as vigorously as they do for companies that violate the "do-not-call" list. /s

Of course, the NSA probably already has the call history in its data base.

The evil of the death threats aside, do the idiots making them really think that Zimmerman hasn’t changed his phone number?

Then again, if this woman isn’t smart enough to simply change her number, maybe it isn’t that crazy to think GZ didn’t change his.

Tape the calls and save the caller ID log.

They could but as long as the protected ones are doing the calling and threatening it won’t be. Now if the situation is reversed, the full force of the Federal and State Governments would descend upon the caller within the hour. The Whites, particularly the White Conservatives and Christians are about to experience what it was to be a Jew in Germany during the 1930s. Some, when they decided to become politically active, have already experienced it.

If you had a dire enemy in Florida that you really wanted to hurt, just pass their phone number around on FB and say it belongs to a Zimmerman juror. (NO! I did not say that!)

Does this mean the Obama phone keypads are faulty?

Your comments are apt. Actually, much of this threatening conduct can be directly attributed to the bizarre behavior of the Attorney General, in organizing a Justice Department effort to effectively lynch George Zimmerman.

There was nothing presented in the Zimmerman trial, which would convince anyone that a further investigation of Zimmerman was in order, based upon any respected legal theory. That Holder would set up a section to solicit a witch-hunt is not the pursuit of justice, but the obstruction of justice, for which he should be impeached.

The endlessly repeated "big lie" technique, being adopted to disparage Zimmerman, of course is right out of the Nazi playbook. Again, you are right on the mark.

Incidentally, Obama has been employing Nazi style PR tactics since the 2008 campaign. (Leftist Chickens Coming Home.) Does anyone really believe that that is only a coincidence?

Change the phone answering message;

You have reached your local office of the
National Security Agency. There is no need to leave your number. We have it. Just leave a message.

Very clear now. The administration wants to let their people get away with crime while prosecuting normal people for imaginary crimes.

Why doesn’t a conservative news organization buy the number, put it with a VOIP service, and start tracking calls. Put on a simple message like, “this is George Z., Leave a message.”

There would be an upfront cost of less than $50 and less than $5 month after that. It might reveal some interesting information.

Well this is just like all the white people/ conservatives who are calling and threatening black people over this. /s

When are we as a nation going to wake up and realize the left is a violent, irrational group?

I once posted some nice photos of the Palin family on line. I can’t repeat or even describe here the violent and sexually deviant threats that “liberals” were posting in public.

The president has lost his touch. If this had happened immediately following the election while audience members were still swooning and weeping at his words, his comments about the verdict, delivered on day before the planned protests - would have had their intended effect. Instead, after some years of “Hope and Change”, he wasn’t able to get more than a few hundred out there to protest and some of them wanted excuses to smash and grab.

Exactly. How about answering the phone to these fake ass gangsta wannabes with a big “FU, I’m armed, come and get me.”

Contact the FDLE to investigate since they are so diligent about phone calls and phone records —

Oh that’s right.

Nevermind.

“You have reached your local office of the National Security Agency. There is no need to leave your number. We have it. And we know who you are and where you live.
Just leave a message.
Remember, if your message is nasty, we’re gonna come bust a cap in yo’ ass, mo’fo’.
Think real carefully before you leave any message, idiot.”

Just confirms what we've known all along, that committed liberals, like homosexuals, transvestites and transgenders, are mentally ill.
