Florida prosecutors finally did the right thing and charged George Zimmerman with second-degree murder 44 days after local police whitewashed his killing of Trayvon Martin and let him walk free. But looking at this crazy situation, I still think I’ve died and woken up in a real-life version of Idiocracy, or maybe, The Road. I mean, it was bad enough to find out that a cop wanna-be named George Zimmerman, in Florida where you can shoot somebody and get away with it as long as the victim is too dead to tell their side of the story, the wanna-be cop Zimmerman packing a gun but no good sense, heads out as a vigilante a few weeks ago, saw an unarmed 17-year-old boy, confronted the boy (even though the police dispatcher told Zimmerman not to), shot him dead, but the police didn’t do the proper evidence-gathering, witness-interviewing, ballistics testing, or medical exams, so George Zimmerman had 44 days of freedom, while 17-year-old Trayvon Martin went to the morgue and then to his grave!

It was bad enough when those backwards town police totally dropped the ball, maybe they dropped the ball on purpose, as is apparently the case in Florida on a regular basis, so the dead kid’s family had to go to the media, and the media had to force the police to release the 911 phone call records, in fact the media did the work the police should have done: talk to witnesses, investigate the background of George Zimmerman (a guy who’d had previous run-ins with the law).

The media, the family and the public had to put pressure on outside investigators to consider the fact that George Zimmerman ended somebody’s life in a situation that George Zimmerman clearly provoked. And the Sanford police department already had a documented history of "bungling" murder investigations anyway, especially when the murdered people were black.

It was bad enough to see white folks (some of them without their hoods on) defending George Zimmerman and attacking the media, Trayvon Martin, and Martin’s family.

TheRealGeorgeZimmerman.Com: Every Guy Who Kills a Kid in Self-Defense Has a Right to Make Money Off It!

Their pro-Zimmerman/anti-Trayvon screed goes something like this: Trayvon Martin is a black kid, he was wearing a hoodie, he is six feet tall, he had fake gold teeth and had been suspended from high school and he didn’t immediately identify himself when George Zimmerman asked who he was. And that Trayvon may even have hit George Zimmerman in the face after Zimmerman chased him around for a while, and because of all of the aforesaid information, we, the white defenders of George Zimmerman, many of whom support the Florida "stand your ground" law that would have been better seen in 1850, like we’re all in a Clint Eastwood shoot 'em up movie, in Florida we can darn well shoot anybody almost anytime if we can convince the police that we felt threatened, and that’s why that dumb, scary negro teenager Trayvon deserved to die, and that’s it boys, case closed, nothing to see here, just move on.

But to put the baddest icing on the baddest cake, the stinkin' cake of death...is the utter coldheartedness and greed of shooter George Zimmerman-- who now seeks to profit from killing Trayvon Martin. 

Yes, dear, sweet Mr. Zimmerman, instead of ever apologizing for killing the kid, starting up a fund to help the kid’s family, the gunner started a website with PayPal, TheRealGeorgeZimmerman.com, and is soliciting funds. He also contacted right-wing talk show host Sean Hannity...what better ally if you want to be a media personality?

Because poor George Zimmerman (who went out looking for trouble and found it and killed an unarmed kid), poor George is having a hard time earning money now, so he wants the public to give him money. Here’s what he says on his TheRealGeorgeZimmerman.com website:

“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.


George Zimmerman”

Well if that just isn’t the height of opportunistic salesmanship! Talk about turning lemons into lemonade. About finding a silver dollar lining in a gray cloud of gun smoke. About turning tragedy into a six-figure bank account. TheRealeorgeZimmerman.com is about the audacity of money.

In today’s America, you can kill a black kid, walk away without posting bail, then solicit funds from all the haters, KKK members, Limbaugh lovers and others who have been on the internet by the tens of thousands defending George Zimmerman ever since this killing gained public fame.

This is how crazy America has become. America…the land of the free and the home of the brave. And you better be brave to live here because people are free to shoot you because you are Walking with Skittles While Black & Wearing a Hoodie. That’s WWSWBWH, for those of you looking to make it simpler.

No matter what, the audacity of a guy trying to make bank off of killing a kid is a sign that Zimmerman might have star power, perhaps a career in right-wing politics, or as director of the National Rifle Association, or maybe just a poster boy for the Aryan Nations and White Supremacists.

Because TheRealGeorgeZimmerman.com may well make the shooter rich, and after all, money is the god, and who knows, maybe one day there’ll be a reality show called “Stand Your Ground.” Sponsored by the NRA.

“In this week’s episode we show you how a 29-year-old man follows around a 17-year-old and stood his ground until the kid was dead on the ground and is now buried in the ground. Now stand by your ground for a word from the American Gun Lobby, one of the proud sponsors of this Jesus-lovin' Christian show.”

And what is more revealing is that as with the public arguments about America's constant wars, its prison-industrial complex, and the culture of bullying, we see there are two Americas. On one side are the people who know that Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman should never have interacted with each other, and if they did, it should not have been in a circumstance where an armed adult was freaking out, stalking somebody in a hoodie, ignoring official instructions to stand down, creating a confrontation that ended in death. 

It's like people who shoot each other in road rage incidents. Family members who shoot each other. People who kill each other over a few dollars lost in a card game. How did America, a country that professes to be a nation following the example of a martyred man who said "love your neighbor" and "turn the other cheek," end up being a nation where people with guns routinely blast other people dead? A nation where anybody could even for a minute support and argue on behalf of gunners? 

The sane people among us rejoice that George Zimmerman has finally been arrested and will be prosecuted. Given how judges, lawyers and juries are, though, there's no guarantee he'll be convicted. But at least he will endure some discomfort, and maybe if he is ever free again, the next time he sees a black kid in a hoodie, he will have a good heart, instead of a cold heart.
