    In a letter to the NAACP his family refuted the allegation(s), and provided specific example of how George had put himself on the line for his black community.

    The letter also described how Zimmerman was one of “very few” in Sanford, Fla., who spoke out publicly to condemn the “beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer.”:

    “Do you know the individual that stepped up when no one else in the black community would?” the family member wrote. “Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church‐goers to get out of church so that he could hand them fliers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8th, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??”

    “That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Ironic isn’t it?”
    BUT THEN THERE IS THIS: Purported Zimmerman family letter demands NAACP 'call off the dogs'


    From page 2:



    Indeed, the city's record and minutes of public meetings at Sanford city hall show that no meeting or workshop took place on January 8th.

    January 8th was a Saturday, which would have been an unusual day to convene a commission meeting,particularly without all five elected members.

    McCarty said the January 3rd special meeting called by the then- outgoing mayor, Linda Kuhn, was for the sole purpose of creating a process to pick a new chief of police. Ware is not mentioned in the minuted of either the January 3rd or January 10th commission meetings.

    Zimmerman gets continuance
    2:56 p.m. EST, May 9, 2012|By Rene Stutzman, Orlando Sentinel

    A judge has granted George Zimmerman's request for a continuance, meaning his attorney is not due back in court in Sanford until Aug. 8.

    Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. signed that order Tuesday, the same day defense attorney Mark O'Mara filed his request for the delay.

    What's being delayed is a routine hearing called "docket sounding," a proceeding that often lasts less than five minutes at which attorneys tell the judge the status of their cases and what work still needs to be done, for example, that a witness needs to be deposed or the state needs to turn over a security camera photo that's in evidence.

    The continuance bought O'Mara six more weeks. Without it, he would have been due back in court June 27.

    George Zimmerman's attorney may get evidence Monday, could block public release

    Normally, when evidence is exchanged between the state and defense it becomes public record, but O'Mara said that may not happen right away in this case.

    "Public release... may be delayed as we may be filing a motion to further redact information, and an opportunity to review the discovery is necessary to determine the applicability of that motion," the statement says.

    "While we understand the frustration of those who want to view the information as soon as possible, we believe that Mr. Zimmerman's right to a fair trial, decided by an impartial, unbiased jury is paramount," O'Mara said. [IMG]

    Click here to watch this powerful video.

    Together, we can end the pain that gun violence is bringing into too many mothers’ lives.

    Trayvon Martin’s mother got about eight months of donated vacation time from county co-workers

    The county commission passed a resolution in April allowing county employees to donate their vacation time to Fulton or Trayvon’s aunt, Yolanda Knight Evans, a water and sewer customer service representative.

    Records show 192 county employees gave Fulton some of their hours, and 70 people donated to Knight Evans.

    The donations for Fulton added up to 1,362 hours — meaning she can take 34 paid weeks off. Trayvon’s aunt collected nearly nine weeks.

    Although Martin's face does not appear on the paper targets, they feature a hoodie with crosshairs aimed at the chest. A bag of Skittles is tucked in the pocket and a hand is holding a can resembling iced tea."

    "According to an advertisement for the targets that had been posted on a popular firearms auction website, the sellers stated they "support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a ****.""

    SANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman's attorney said Friday that he is preparing to receive 5,000 pages of critical evidence in the Trayvon Martin shooting investigation.

    Even before that happens sometime by Monday, Mark O'Mara said he will file a motion to delay for at least a week that information being made public.

    The evidence is said to include Martin's autopsy report and statements from key witnesses. O'Mara said he wants time to make sure the witnesses are protected, and he wants to challenge material he said he believes shouldn't be made public.

    "I'm going to ask the judge to let us hold it until we have a chance to view all of it," O'Mara said.

    The mother of slain teenager Trayvon Martin will be able to take about eight months of paid leave from her county job, thanks to the generosity of county employees.

    Sybrina Fulton, who has worked at the Miami-Dade County housing authority for 23 years, collected $40,825 worth of donated vacation time, county records show. The paid time off is in addition to the nearly $100,000 the family raised on wepay.com and at rallies, which will be used to launch a criminal justice advocacy foundation in Trayvon’s name.

    The donated days are the latest in a mounting fortune in contributions that have amassed on both sides of the controversial case. With websites dedicated to the grieving parents of Trayvon Martin as well as for the man who killed him, and now even his attorney, funds gathered in the wake of the Feb. 26 tragedy are set to reach half a million dollars. Donors continue to reach into their pockets, even as each side criticizes the other’s purpose and intent in seeking donations.
