In late 2010 and early 2011 George Zimmerman, the Hispanic Sanford, Fla., man who shot and killed 17-year-old black teen Trayvon Martin, publicly demanded discipline in a race-related beating case for at least two of the police officers who cleared him after the Feb. 26 altercation, according to records obtained by The Daily Caller.
In a letter to Seminole County NAACP president Turner Clayton, a member of the Zimmerman family wrote that George was one of very few in Sanford who publicly condemned the beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on Dec. 4, 2010, by the son of a Sanford police officer, who is white.
TheDC has confirmed the identity of the Zimmerman family member who wrote the letter but is withholding that persons specific identity out of concern for the familys safety.
On Dec. 4, 2010, Justin Collison, the son of Sanford Police Department Lt. Chris Collison, was involved in a bar fight at The Wet Spot bar in Sanford. During the fight, which moved from indoors to outdoors, the younger Collison struck Ware.
Ware suffered a concussion, and paramedics took him to the hospital shortly after police arrived on the scene. Collison was not arrested or charged, even though an onlooker had video evidence of his actions.

Bet Sharpton is thinking “Just my luck....Twana....now this!”
Nothing good will ever happen at any place called “The Wet Spot”.
Once again, no good deed goes unpunished.
Nah, Sharpton isn’t upset. He is incapable of shame, so he will just look for another way to exploit the situation.
If there were any REAL journalists working this story, they might look to speak to Sherman Ware, the black man defended by the “white Hispanic” George Zimmerman. Instead, the media seems focused on recycling the crap spewed by the Mob of Sharpton.
That’s why the Obama buddies, black ‘leaders’ wanted to set the narrative first.
The ends justify the means in their world. Laws are just made by greedy, white man.
Nothing will matter to these nuts. Huffington Post no matter the informationt has convicted him and tied the rope to the tree branch and waiting for a public hanging.
like the article hints, the story will be spun to create the idea that the police department has a history of letting “white” offenders off easy if their opponent is a black.
Haven’t followed the Daily Caller coverage, but interesting to note in this article Z-man came to the defense of a black homeless man and is suddenly “Hispanic.”
For those of us who are following this story, here is a link to a related development in Sanford Florida at
This story tells of two black teens in Sanford Florida who pulled a 50 year old white man out of his vehicle and beat him with a hammer. The man is now on life support. The attack was a payback for the Trayvon Martin shooting.
