More than seven years after he fatally shot their unarmed teen son, George Zimmerman is coming after Trayvon Martin’s parents — for millions of dollars.

The neighborhood watch volunteer is suing Martin’s parents and others for $100 million in a proceeding filed Wednesday in Polk County, Fla.

Zimmerman was acquitted of a second-degree murder charge in 2013, but the suit contends the only reason he was charged in the first place was due to testimony from a “fake witness” — Rachel Jeantel, who at one point was identified as Eugenia Diamond, a nickname — but who the lawsuit alleges are in fact two people. Both names are listed as defendants in the suit.

In addition, he is suing Trayvon’s parents — Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin — family attorney Benjamin Crump, Crump’s book publisher and prosecutors who tried his case for the killing of the 17-year-old in Sanford, Fla. …

My favorite “take” from that horror was the media saying that someone who asked a hostile question could be beaten to death.
Seriously, that was the media’s position.

Good luck to him.

Zimmerman did not shoot Trayvon. A gun shot Trayvon.

How about a civil rights suit against the city/county and their officials individually?

As well as Holder and OCommie for sticking their racist ignorant noses in both before and after trial

Sue the bastards . . . pun intended

The left tried to kill him twice. If his suit fails he should respond in kind. If his suit succeeds he should respond in kind.

They don’t get to kill us. They don’t get to treat us like garbage.

Clint Eastwood should make a movie about George Zimmerman and his innocence.

"unarmed teen son"

The "teen" was beating Zimmerman's head on the pavement.

George Zimmerman is still using his real name? I heard he had changed it to Ben Ghazi, and then the news media didn’t want to bother him anymore.

Thanks to the internet the media is no longer able to doctor evidence to fit their biased positions without the truth eventually being discovered. For sure, still not enough people are aware of the truth re unarmed teen Travon vs half-white Zimmerman, but perhaps post Trump in future situations the media might begin to have a little more difficulty fabricating evidence, and convincing unskeptical drones.

At the least, perhaps post Trump the media may be looked upon with a little more skepticism. However, with regards to the Travon matter, to this day the entire truth of exactly what really happened is yet to be laid bare. Of course the usual suspects — low information crowd that suck up whatever the media shoves in their face — as evidenced by twitter “going nuts”, “know” the real truth. I personally know some of these types, and they will let you know in no uncertain terms that Zimmerman got away with murder.

Prior to the internet there likely has always been undiscovered cases of media evidence fabrication. These people have not all of a sudden become corrupt and dishonorable.

Hope he buries them. Time for reverse reparations, to snuff out the BLM gold mine operation.
