" George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who is accused of murder in the death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, has raised at least $200,000 through a website set up to fund his defense, his lawyer said on Thursday"
"Donors contributed "just over $200,000," said Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's defense lawyer."
"The site set up to solicit funds for Zimmerman's defense, therealgeorgezimmerman.com, has since been shut down."
Why exactly would total strangers want to give Zimmerman of all people so much money? Much as I hate to say it, maybe this shows how many racists are still out there. Many see him shooting an unarmed young black man something heroic or at least that he somehow needs to be supported or defended against some kind of liberal smear.
There are many deserving recipients for charity-why was $200,000 on someone who is not at all deserving?
