George Zimmerman called police last weekend, he alleges, after a man cold-cocked him in a restaurant. Zimmerman was in a Sanford, FL, with some buddies (let’s pause and think about what kind of buddies Zimmerman probably has). In the police call, the person on the line asks Zimmerman what started the fight, to which he responds simply, “He recognized me.”
Witnesses tell a different story. According to patrons of the Gators Riverside Restaurant, Zimmerman was bragging about killing Trayvon Martin - the teenage boy he admitting to killing before being infamously acquitted of all charges - saying loudly that it was self-defense. He even tried it as a pick-up line, showing his I.D. card and allegedly saying, “I love your tattoos. My name is George Zimmerman, you know, that guy who killed Trayvon Martin?”
A man approached him and asked, “You’re bragging about that?” Then BLAMMO, right in George Zimmerman’s bloated face.
In his police call, Zimmerman says he’s afraid the guy will kill him. The alleged attacker fled the restaurant, but if found, he may face assault charges. While many may use this as an example of karma, the NY Daily News reports that the man called Zimmerman a "n----r lover" before letting his mighty fist blow, breaking Zimmerman's glasses (which is a very odd but important detail, if true).
The assailant's name has not been released. We can't win for losing, can we? Le sigh.
