There's just several layers of irony here...what do you all think?

Ugh, George Zimmerman just needs to go the hell away.... -_- It's just a story to make those who find him guilty for killing Treyvon sympathetic towards him. Well, it's not going to work with me. Especially since I think that the jury made a huge mistake in letting him go and that he should have at least been convicted of manslaughter.

This just shows us who George Zimmerman really is: a man who believes in doing what he can to help out his community. We need more people like him.

I wonder if Trayvon would have helped if he saw them on his way to buy illegal items...

^ Agreed

His true colors show. While in hiding he exposed himself to help others in need potentially risking his life.

George Zimmerman should have been convicted of manslaughter. The jury made a mistake with that decision. That being said though, at least he is taking advantage of that mistake to do something good and useful. I may disagree with what he did that night, though mistakes were made on both sides, but I can still acknowledge it when he does something good.

Yes, because people with issues don't have a conscience at all. I mean, they see death all the time and just love it.

What are those three cases supposed to prove? I think you misunderstand:

"Former gang member"
-he's no longer involved in crime.
-He has already turned his life around.

"Hospital that saves"
-people more often do what benefits them: saving this hospital helps them
-Zimmerman saving people in a truck doesn't really benifit him: those who are making death threats don't care.

"recovering dug addict"
See first point (already recognized errors and now a better person).


None of these are criminals in the heyday of their negative activities like Trayvon. Two of these are uplifting tales of people who have already begun on the path of helping themselves and now others.

It is great to read positive things though. Thank you for the stories.

You miss the point. Even people who are still in gangs and who kill people can have enough of a conscience to have helped those people. To even hint that Trayvon wouldn't have is just ridiculous. Yes, two of those stories involve people who turned their life around but why not think about what it was that made them even want to turn their lives around. It's because they were never really all that bad of people to begin with. Yes, that hospital will help them as well but even one of the co-founders says “It’s bad enough we’re out here harming each other, But then for the hospital to close that can help people that is innocent and being harmed– that’s genocide.”.

Trayvon not helping a family? Because he had a gun and marijuana? Yes, surely he must be evil to have those.

He illegally had those.

He was suspended at the time for:

"Reports say “campus security officers found 12 pieces of women’s jewelry, a watch and a screwdriver that they felt could be used as a burglary tool.” "

The only person he had helped was himself. I don't think he was stealing these and giving them to the poor.

According to the official story Zimmerman was walking back to his truck when he was attacked.


So tell me how someone who attacks another from behind and steals is going to be helping the needy.

The official story can be whatever the living make it to be. Doesn't mean it is going to be 100% true. Even being a thief doesn't make someone heartless either. I have lots of illegal things that I have stolen or shouldn't have and I would have attacked some random guy following me at night too if I felt it was my best option at the time. Would I still have helped that family? Of course I would. They didn't do anything to me to where I would wish harm on them. Not to mention kids being there. What reason could someone have to not help kids? Not all people who do bad things are bad enough to where they wouldn't do something good when needed. The world isn't just black and white.

That's the media for you. You can't blame the jury for the faults of the persecution. He should have never been charged with 2nd degree murder. Even if they did charge him with an involuntary manslaughter, they still can't prove what happened. He very likely would have been found not guilty anyways.

The idea that criminals will help a stranger in need every time is just ridiculous. The probability of anyone at all helping one another is rare. The idea that someone who takes from other to help themselves, helping another, and possibly exposing himself to danger in the process is astronomically low. My point lost in this argument is that Zimmerman isn't the monster the media made him to be. Also, I don't think Trayvon would have helped.

It really does need to go away, but since it distracts people from real problems; it will more than likely stay.
