The family rescued by George Zimmerman ... terrified they will become targets for hate mobs
Daily Mail ^ | July 23, 2013 | Paul Thompson

Posted on 07/23/2013 5:41:19 PM PDT by kevcol

'He is a very quiet man and will not like having his name mentioned all over the press. I am sure he is very grateful to Zimmerman but he is not the type you will see on a chat show talking about what happened.'
.
.
.
'Mark has two young children and has got to live his life round here. Why would he want to mark himself out.

'Whatever he says could be taken out of context. If he praises Zimmerman then people will say he is making him into a hero. It is easier if he says nothing.'

Even the towing company who removed the Gerstle's car from the highway refused to talk about the incident.

The Miranda Towing Company from Oviedo were called by Seminole County Police to remove the blue Ford Explorer from the side of the highway.

When contacted by MailOnline a member of staff said: 'We have got nothing to say' before slamming down the phone.

Good for him. GZ didn’t stop because he wanted publicity, neither did the towtruck.

Or even reporting on it.

The Hussein years have been like the Clinton years.
There are many stories that we would never know about were the British papers not covering them

Recent contributions have been to Democratic candidates. Probable Trayvon supporter who doesn't want to credit Zimmerman for helping him:

You mean those reasonable, intelligent, polite and civilized folks who call themselves African Americans?

Why they wouldn’t hurt a fly.

What a sick world when a person can’t be a hero and be applauded for it! And the ones he helps are targets for domestic terror!

It's also possible, given his donor record, that he's a mealy-mouthed jerk who doesn't want to give Zimmerman any credit.

Media and Political witch hunts are nasty, horrible things, aren't they?

None of us nobodies are safe from either of them.

For the past year it was Zimmerman.
For the next week or so it will be this man's family.
The following week...it could be any one of us, but it will indeed be one of us.
Any personal tragedy instantly made into a public event, for the purposes of the entertainment industry, or the state.

Is it time yet?

“Zimmerman made sure Gerstle, his 41 year old wife Dana Michelle and children aged eight and four were safe before leaving the scene.”

The Black Panther Party has put a $10,000 bounty for anyone who kills George Zimmerman. The family has two children aged 8 and 4. They are probably wise to avoid the media. Do you think anyone in the media or the Justice Department will show them any sympathy or support if their children are murdered by black thugs?

Second, if they say one word to the MSM they can expect their tax returns to be audited by the Obama IRS. Who knows what other government agencies will attack them.

It would be nice if they went on national TV and thanked George Zimmerman for his heroic actions. But I understand why they are afraid to.

Which hate mobs are they afraid of? The ones ginned up by the race baiters? The hate mob known as the DOJ? The hate mob media? I don’t blame these people one iota. They are doing the right thing by their families.

So, the Democrat Obama Voter and his Family are afraid of the other Democrat Obama Voters because they were rescued by a Democrat Obama Voter.

Got it.

Per WFTV at 6pm the rescued family is going to hold a press conference tomorrow afternoon regarding the rescue. No doubt it is because the press has been camped outside their home and their names have been made public.

I think that what you are saying is the point and illustrates the difference between liberal, mob-think, group action and conservative, individual action and individual responsibility. We know and recognize the potential danger to the individual and that person's need to do what is right for their situation.

Wouldn't surprise me if he was just a jerk and wanted to avoid giving credit to Zimmerman. Just because people have stopped going to church doesn't mean that religious faith is dead. It just means that uncritical belief has migrated towards even less rational subjects. People who don't believe in religion will literally believe anything, including the idea that a black youth with a violent record seeing the sights, at night, in the rain, like a tourist, in a gated community, was just minding his own business rather than looking for trouble.

Prejudice has followed a similar path with religious faith - racism is all but dead, so prejudice among liberal whites has migrated from blacks to white southerners, with the kicker that while it was never thought reasonable to wish blacks dead, it is considered almost virtuous to wish white southerners dead. William Faulkner was right to say "The past is never dead. It's not even past."

I have a feeling they will eventually coming out with a statement condemning Zim’s actions in the Trayvon case. Especially if they’re liberals.

Yes, they are excellent parents for teaching their children to not stand up for themselves or to stand for those who have helped them.

Their shining example of cowardice deserves our deep respect.

There is a time and place for everything, and a smart parent will temper his impulses if necessary for the best possible outcome — it’s his obligation.

If he wants to say: "No comment," fine.

Ignoring the press is rational.

But if he said he doesn't want to talk to the press because he does not want anyone to think he supports the man who rescued his children, then that's contemptible.

There is no First Amendment if Americans are afraid to calmly express an opinion for fear of death.

A nickles worth of free advice:

Grow a pair.

Then go out and buy a gun or two and learn how NOT to be a victim.

Agreed, “No comment” would have been an appropriate response if the goal is avoid perceived endangerment.

These people are already known by name and address and are being accused of participating in a plot to rehabilitate George Zimmerman.

The moment the police report was filed they were identified.

They can't hide now, so what is the use?

The federal government should be pursuing the cowardly death threat makers (we know they have the technology to identify them) instead of George Zimmerman.
