Attorneys for George Zimmerman, [...], say they can't find him, fear for his safety
Fox News ^ | April 11, 2012 | Phil Keating

Posted on 04/11/2012 1:18:29 PM PDT by 5thGenTexan

George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Fla., man at the center of the Trayvon Martin shooting death, has gone off the grid. Disappeared. And his attorneys are now no longer his attorneys.

“George can’t go down to the 7-Eleven to buy a Coke,” says former attorney Hal Uhrig. “There’s a bounty on his head. Whether it’s believed to be a bounty or not, it’s out there. He probably watches more of this than he should. He’s largely alone -- whether that means he’s absolutely alone or not, he’s at least emotionally alone. And you might even say “emotionally crippled” by virtue of the pressure of this case.”

This just in: Zimmerman will be charged with violating the city noise ordinance by discharging a firearm within city limits!

I hope he’s figured out a way to flee the country, because that is the only way he is going to avoid the Racial Jihading left and media’s effort to lynch him.

Attorneys who don’t represent me can’t find me, either.

They are not “George Zimmerman’s attorneys”.

Funny how if they’re not his attorneys anymore that they’re still not camera shy. Maybe he needs to put them right below ABC and MSNBC on who to sue for spreading rumors.

I agree. I hope he leaves. There is no way this man will get a fair trial. Eff it. Run, George.

God Speed. Man, after what Obama and Holder are doing, I would be gone too.

Can anybody imagine that the leader of America, the President of the United States, would say, in essence’ “this guy killed my son”. And, we have an AG that may as well be the President of the Black Panters.

What version of reality have we slipped into.

Anyway, back on topic...yeah, I'd get the hell out of here too.

Good for him.
He’s been sentenced to death by the media.

What sane person wouldn’t try to escape that?

He’s welcome over here. Bring fajitas, we’re grilling tomorrow.

Hey George. I am sure you feel betrayed by the diversity brothas of the Demon-rat party. Get off it. There are more Americans that know about their tribalist hate for socialist power game than don’t. So you were tricked; so are a lot of “hispanics” who fancy “sharing” (communism) and race-baiting for power. You did not realize the lefties hate your skin, too.

Wise up and don’t be afraid of the racist pigs. They don’t win. Even with the media lying for them. Check out the Duke Lax case. Do whatever your dad tells you to do.

Is this a running bad joke you keep posting in the Zimmerman threads? If so please use a “/Sarc” at the end.

Thanks.

Just heard Hannity on his radio program about 10 minutes ago say that he knows where Zimmerman is. I’m thinking Zimmerman doesn’t want the attorneys, whether they were, in fact, ever formally hired by him, to know where he is. After some of the things they said yesterday (including the part about questioning his mental health), I wouldn’t want them as my attorneys either if I were Zimmerman.

This is the same man who said something along the lines of "although I don't know all of the facts, the cops acted stupidly".

And he patched this all up with a Beer Summit.

Welcome to Obamaland.

Zimmerman is lucky in that future objects of class and race struggle for political purposes will not be allowed to simply disappear so easily.

George. If you are out there still in the U.S., I hope you read this:

I hope GZ, whom I admire, is in Peru, his mother’s birth place.

Since his mother was born in Peru, he is a dual citizen. But if he hasn’t made his Peruvian citizenship official, he needs some one...and anyone can do it…it does not require a lawyer to get an official copy of his U.S. birth certificate...have the BC signed off verifying it’s officially validated by some designated official whose job it is to do...within the state he was born. His BC can then be mailed it to him in Peru.

His mother’s birth certificate is already on file in Peru; therefore, he does not need anything else…not his father’s BC or his parents’ marriage certificate.

He is then good to go as a Peruvian citizen.

Lawsuits toward his accusers are still in order.

If Zimmerman showed up at my door he’d be welcome for dinner and a place to sleep for a while.

I also have some things that need to get done around the house and it would be nice to have some help.

(Is that ok to say.... you know, earn your keep? Or is that racists because he is actually a “White Latino”?)

Idaho, Wyoming, or Montana. Washington, Oregon and California are all too dimocrat and too leftist to feel safe in. I lived in WA state 15 years and hated it. Finally got to come home to Alabama. My wife, from Seattle, goes back to visit family. I refuse to go back to that place. I love Wyoming. That is a great place to go and be yourself and alone.

Yeah, but, If I had a son. Where the hell did he come up with that?

He might as well have simply said, ‘Kill Zimmerman now’.
Whether that was his intent or not, that is what he did.

How STUPID can a person be? Obama is beyond Left or Right or Liberal or anything. He is just a crazy stupid idiot. Jeez.

Oregon feels awfully safe to me. One in eight adults in my county are CCW holders. But for a few square miles, this is a red State.

Or he could just refuse a subpoena requiring him to appear in court, much like Holder has done in the ‘Fast and Furious’ debacle.

MY STATEMENT FROM ANOTHER THREAD:

Freepers,

Believe it or not, Zimmerman has a pretty good case for political asylum in another country. Pretty astounding in this day and age, but true. Look at the facts:

1. He can't get a fair trial here. Jurors will be intimidated.

2. If he turns himself in, there's a good chance it wouldn't even make it trial. After all, there's a bounty on his head.

3. It's obvious he'd get no civil rights protection from the national government here. In fact, they seem to be on the side of the mob, and will aid in the persecution.

4. The peace officers, whose duty it is to protect the innocent until proven otherwise, can't even protect itself from the political mob.

This is the book definition of a political refugee status. If I were him, and I couldn't get out of the country, I'd find a foreign embassy or consulate, and ask for protection. Yeah, I know it sounds third world, but he's got a case.

“needs some one...and anyone can do it…it does not require a lawyer to get an official copy of his U.S. birth certificate...”

No, that can't be. It takes years and years to get a copy of a U.S. birth certificate — even with lawyers, and powerful politicians involved. Even then, you can't be sure you'll get an actual true copy of an actual birth certificate. Anyone, who claims to know someone with a birth certificate is just repeating an urban myth.

Black Panther's have a bounty out, Holder and Obozo are nothing more than a lynch mob egged on by Jackson and Not so Sharpton.

Meantime Zimmerman has ducked out and no one knows where he is.

Oh contrar President Obozo, Zimmerman is the wise latino.

They can't find him... because he's in custody? Brilliant lawyers. /s

The Zimmerman case is a fiasco. No matter what, he was going to be charged to appease the rabble roused by the very highest level of our gov't.

Can the facts win over prejudice in this case? I wouldn't bet a life on it.

“**AP now saying that Zimmerman is in custody and will be charged with 2nd degree murder.**

What a gutless AD for bring up any charge. But she goes one further with 2nd degree murder which IMO he will never be convicted of. Maybe in the FL court system the jury can convict him of a lesser crime, base on the Anthony trial I'm thinking not?

So it will be a multi-million dollar “show” trial, followed my mass riots.

Sad - and disquieting. The man is being targeted for the sake of political expediency, which is the sort of garbage that goes on under despostic regimes. I strongly suggest that every citizen re-assess what steps they should take to defend against any such maneuvers in the event they too become a target. The rules for what passes for "due process" in this nation have evidently changed.
