George Zimmerman emerges from hiding, rescues truck crash victim, police reportedly say
AOL ^ | July 22, 2013

George Zimmerman has been in hiding for more than a week since a Fla. jury cleared him of charges in the 2012 shooting death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin. But last week, the embattled neighborhood watch volunteer "pulled an individual from a truck that rolled over," Sanford police captain Jim McAuliffe told ABC News. According to ABC News, Zimmerman was one of two men to rush to the aid of a family of four trapped inside an overturned SUV.

NBC News reports that the incident took place on July 17 in Sanford, Fla. and by the time police had arrived on the scene, the family of four had escaped the vehicle, which had caught on fire. No injuries were reported. Zimmerman and another man were helping two children and their parents get out of the overturned Ford Explorer, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office told NBC News....

Is he really “in hiding” or is he just getting on with his life and not being a publicity whore like so many others?

In case you missed it, George Zimmerman rescued someone from a truck.

No he’s civic-minded, witness his founding a neighborhood watch after his community was suffering from crime and tutoring disadvantaged black youth. Weird that he looks like a geek when people like that used to be almost typical when I was young.

I get amused by the duplicity of duplicate threads. This one is still less than 10 threads so far.

I saw a story get reposted over 14 times once. In one day. It’s like someone reads a headline story and thinks; “Gee. I’ll post that on Free Republic!”

Multiply that time 10-15 posters and you get absurdity.

Already today one FReeper posted this rescue story twice in less than one minute. Why? Because it was from different sources.

Hoo boy.

Kinda funny what Freepers can and can’t get enough of.

There must be at least 50 or 60 stories about Detroit over the last 72 hours but Freepers seem to take special glee in that. George Zimmerman doing something good is just too boring to talk about.

... cleared him of charges in the 2012 shooting death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

This has to be one of the most posted stories I've seen here at FR and I've been around awhile. However, it's interesting how each news outlet portrays Trayvon Martin. Here he's described as an unarmed teen, another affixes his age to his name as in '17 year old unarmed Trayvon Martin' and so it goes. Incredible.

Good things worked out the way they did...Tray would have taken the woman’s purse.

I for one would love to see a story on the Leigh man gold inventory drawdown then the warehouse fire yesterday, followed by the price of gold shooting up today. It may indicate a run on physical gold stocks. Gold is up $42 bucks so far today!

I haven’t see confirmation of the race of the rescued. Not that I care, but the MSM sure the hell does. Complete SMOTHER if the family was black. Some big $$$ for the reporter that gets the exclusive from the family in the Exploder.

George Zimmerman rescues victims trapped in overturned truck...Four people, including two children, pulled unscathed from burning vehicle:

Message from the Liberal Zimmerman Haters to George Zimmerman: “We don’t need you to do that!”

George Zimmerman says the victims were White.

GZ was, and still is, in hiding. He just had to break cover for the rescue.

Not everyone can monitor FR all day long. The threads move off the front page and dialogue ceases. Some people come home from work and see a thread that is new to them that may have been previously posted multiple times and they are glad to find it and communicate with other Freepers about it.

If FR moved active threads to the top each time someone posted, that would go some ways toward solving the problem. Not complaining; that's just my observation.

Well, the story wasn’t on any of the news channels here. It IS legitimate and timely news; but doesn’t fit the KOA template that Diane Soryer and her ilk must adhere to. Fortunately, they had the royal baby to take up any time Zimmerman might have gotten.

Did AOL really headline it as “Police reportedly say”?

What a bunch of losers.
