George Zimmerman, the man who shot an unarmed Trayvon Martin, has launched http://www.TheRealGeorgeZimmerman.com to thank his supporters and to collect donations via PayPal for his living and legal expenses.
The site must be experiencing an enormous amount of traffic as it’s been up and down all afternoon.
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.
Zimmerman isn’t much for web design, as the website features nothing more than an American flag background and the text above, along with some navigational links.
The domain looks like it was privately registered on Sunday, according to NetworkSolutions.com records.
He closes his message with the following quote from Edmund Burke:
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men do nothing.”
