Memphis Bank Robber Blames George Zimmerman, Leads Police on Chase, Shoots Himself (VIDEO)
Guns.com ^ | August 3, 2013 | Jennifer Cruz

Amerson’s son, Marvin said, “He just wanted the best for us all, but just went the wrong way.”

A bank robbery in East Memphis last week ended in the suspect killing himself, but not before taking off with a bag of money and terrorizing employees and customers in the bank.

On July 23, just before 10:00 a.m. the suspect walked into the Wells Fargo armed with a gun. “He just forced me to the ground and he said, ‘Blame this on George Zimmerman,’” one of the victims told the 911 dispatcher. “I thought he was going to shoot all of us,” he said.

The suspect, later identified as 51-year-old Marvin Amerson, had 10 people face down on the floor as he collected cash from the bank. Terrified victims frantically – and quietly – made calls to 911, speaking in desperate muffled whispers out of fear that Amerson would catch them making the calls.

Blame it on Jesse Jackass and Baraq Hussein Ubama. They stoked up the fires of a phony race war.

“He just forced me to the ground and he said, ‘Blame this on George Zimmerman,’”

Well, if he didn't blame George Zimmerman, the media probably would have. They seem to be blaming all black crime on the Zimmerman verdict as of late.

Hmmm. No justice, no peace. Go for it, dawgs!

This is what America has become. A nation that has too many whiners who can’t cut it and a bunch of poverty pimp racists who enable them and enrich themselves.

Liberalism is a mental disorder. There is absolutely zero evidence that George Zimmerman was a racist. In fact, by all accounts he was a staunch democrat and probably even subscribed to some of the views of the poverty pimps. Wonder what he thinks now?

What the poverty pimps think of George Zimmerman is that he is expendable & if they can kill him so much the better .

It’s easier to blame Zimmerman then admit you’re a loser. Pretty soon the loser in the white house will blame Zimmerman for his screw ups. He’s running out of people to blame.

t Well, that is a change. Usually they say he loved his family, he loved his dog, he was an aspiring rapper and he was turning his life around.

Since the dead perp has blamed Ben Gazie (AKA George Zimmerman) for his actions there should be a media black-out on this story.

I read an interesting proposition once, that several states could get together and create a town just for ex-convicts to live. Not just any ex-cons, but those who both exhibited good behavior in prison, and just could not adapt to life outside of prison.

Such a town would have several unusual features: it would be very low tech; most food would be grown or raised in the area by the ex-cons; clothing and shoes would be provided by charity; medical care from a visiting nurse once a week, and a dentist once a month.

The idea would be to create an inexpensive habitat where they could live the rest of their lives without crime or being a public menace or nuisance.

Importantly, living there would be a privilege and dependent on good behavior. The only vehicle would be to take a small staff of town managers to and from the nearest city, many miles away.

All told, such a town could save each state millions of dollars.

Blame this on George Zimmerman

That's amazing. Zimmerman handled the whole situation and he wasn't anywhere on the scene.

This is obviously more racism.  I hope the Smithsonian gets his t-shirt or something.  He was just walking home and stumbled into the bank falling up against the counter and gasping for air sounding like he was demanding money, but he wasn't.  /s

Can't a Black man catch a break?  /s
