In a statement on the site, which Zimmerman's attorneys have confirmed to ABC News belongs to him, the 28-year-old wrote, "As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family, and ultimately my entire life."

Now we hear from George.
The first thing he needs to do is lose that stupid earring. Don’t people realize how stupid that makes them look?

Jorge Zimmerman is merely the latest victim of the Democrat lynch mob.
Both ABC and NBC are afraid that George will sue their A$$. And he will win a big damage settlement for their lies.
Here is the statement:
I am the real George Zimmerman,
On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website’s sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries.
It has come to my attention that some persons and/or entities have been collecting funds, thinly veiled as my Defense Fund or “Legal Fund”. I cannot attest to the validity of these other websites as I have not received any funds collected, intended to support my family and I through this trying, tragic time.
I have created a Paypal account solely linked on this website as I would like to provide an avenue to thank my supporters personally and ensure that any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment. I will also personally, maintain accountability of all funds received. I reassure you, every donation is appreciated.
‘7-11 and Skittles’.. What a cute little boy. Whoops, you mean his photo is outdated by a few YEARS? Too bad he wasn’t at the store and neither were these items found at the scene (Maybe George ate the Skittles and drank the tea immediately following the shooting?). Sounds like a conspiracy to make America feel sorry for poor lil’ol 0bama, when in actuality Trayvon was looking for a place to BURGLARIZE. George’s initial instincts were correct.
They'll do all in their power to spin it now, just to save their sorry a$$e$.
If you do a web search for “skittles drugs,” you will find that it’s slang for several different kinds of drugs.
Or, there’s this entry from the Urban Dictionary:
a party where a bunch of teenagers or young adults get together with a lot of random pills.usually taken from parents medicine cabinets.
they put them all into a pile and every one takes a few.
you dont know exactly what you take.
hey! since there is nothing to do tonight..lets all raid our medicine cabinets and have a skittles party!!
we will get messed up!
Man, I hope he’s in a secure undisclosed location of Cheney-esque proportions, cuz there’s enough crazy people to just kill him on sight.
keep the earring!!!
Remember? This “white” hispanic is never described as a democrat.
He’s an earring-wearing democrat white hispanic.
I’m not interested in supporting GZ, though I will support him as innocent until PROVEN guilty.
Then he can sue or write a book.
That was an old photo. This was taken on March 30, 2012...
Somebody already tried that and look at him now.
Let's see a picture of your mug.
George Zimmerman mug shot from a 2005 arrest. Zimmerman is the neighborhood watch participant who shot a teenage, Trayvon Martin, in a gated community in Sanford, Florida. (Orange County Jail)
He suited up anticipating the trial?
He was the boy that every Dad would want their sweet little girls to bring home for dinner.
He transformed into the "No Limit N*****", a bad ass who bragged about doing some disgusting things to his women and a beat down on an unsuspecting bus driver via his Twitter account.
He was the boy that every Dad would want their sweet little girls to bring home for dinner.
(There, I fixed that unreadable post!)
He needs to try a place like MT. Not many “Holder’s people” up there and lots of them have guns, too, legally. And it’s far away from where any of the riotous mobs might be - nice buffer zone.
oops. Perhaps not. March 30, 2012 was the date of the article the picture came from.
[The "Long Live Zimmerman" graffiti on Zimmerman's site appears to be from a vandalized black cultural center at Ohio State University.]
I had always thought that skittles was a tabletop game, sort of like bowling, in which a ball is used to knock down pins.
Is George still a proud Democrat?
Oh lovely, ghetto speak at its finest!!
There, I fixed it.
Good one about Obama’s son.
I believe a screwdriver was found on him, a favorite jimmying tool. Of course he didn't deserve to die for that But if he tried to kill Zimmerman and was shot in self defense, that was the reason he died.
“The first thing he needs to do is lose that stupid earring. Dont people realize how stupid that makes them look?”
Do you realise how stupid your comment makes YOU look?
The true test of course, is you post your picture here, and we all compare you with Z, and decide who looks more “stupid”.
Dare ya, bo.
“Stupid is as stupid does.”
Same might be said of some other bs as well.
I don't think they are the same one bit. Richard Jewell was just standing around. This dude actually shot and killed the kid. George was told not to do anything, but he decided to take action himself. He was on a neighborhood WATCH. He was supposed to observe and report. I don't think the cases are similar at all. What proof do you have that the kid was going to burglarize the places? Did George live in that neighborhood?
1. He lived there
2. He was told he did “not have to do that” by a dispatcher, not the police, so it is a stretch to say he was told NOT TO FOLLOW.
3. How does one “watch” if one does not watch when someone moves away?
4. He did report, a few times. When seconds count, the police are minutes away.
5. Yes he did kill the guy and that is far different than the Jewell, however, the result is the same as he is being hounded by the press without there having been even a charge brought as yet, if ever. And remember, a charge means there is reason to believe he did a crime, not that he is guilty of one as that will be decided in court. If he is found not guilty and you have a problem with that, just content yourself with the OJ case.
IMO the entire purpose of this plea is not to obtain funds, but to set up the case in the lawsuit: “I was so destitute and injured that I had to go on line and beg for assistance just to meet my daily expenses.”
Let’s see if I can dig up one when I was 28 years old. Or maybe one wearing my Marine Corps uniform. Or my Army uniform when I was about 45.
When somebody hands you your arse, don’t give it back to them and say “I think this needs a little more tenderizing”.
If he is found not guilty and you have a problem with that, just content yourself with the OJ case.
Oh you give me way more credit that I need. I don’t give a dang one way or the other. This should have been a local issue and that is it. A hispanic guy killing a black guy goes on everyday....actually numerous times a day especially in places like LA. Whatever the outcome, I don’t care.
“A hispanic guy killing a black guy goes on everyday....actually numerous times a day especially in places like LA.” And visa versa.
We definitely agree on this: “This should have been a local issue and that is it.” Of course with the media and Obama in full reelection mode, it was neededn to move the spotlight from failure to something nebulous.
Which texting and tweeting are fit to carry.
“George was told not to do anything, but he decided to take action himself”
Obviously you have not lived in an area where crime is rampant. Gated communties are there for a reason and that is to prevent breakins and robberies. I question why Martin was not told to identify himself if he wondered around within the gated community. But fact is we do not know what exactly transpired. We do know that Obama, the media, Al Sharpton et al, Black Panthers are distorting the facts for all it’s worth. Why would the media alter tapes and videos if they were really interested in truth? Why then are they doing it? That is the subject matter. The courts will ferret out the facts.That is what they are there for.
ABC still trying to see Zimmerman killed — look at their pictures of the “angel” Traylon and the devil Zimmerman.
America, Guilty until proven innocent, and then still guilty if the liberals want to paint you that way. There needs to be some real change in his country, as in about 20% of the population being evicted, not based on color or religion, but based only loyalty to the constitution alone.
