Man, George Zimmerman, Sues Family Of Unarmed Black Teenager He Shot Dead In 2012
Cop George Zimmerman Walks Free After Killing Trayvon Martin Then Sues The Deceased Teenager’s Family For $100 Million
George Zimmerman shot dead an unarmed black teenager named Trayvon Martin in 2012, and is now suing his family, their attorney, the US state and others for around $100 million.
The neighbourhood watch volunteer stated he shot Trayvon in self-defence, however the young teenager’s family have always insisted it was murder. Zimmerman was cleared of the 17-year old’s murder.
The lawsuit against the family of the teenager, accuses them and the family’s lawyer Benjamin Crump of forcing Brittany Diamond Eugene, 16, the teen’s girlfriend, to make a recorded statement that implicated George Zimmerman as the person who started the row with Trayvon.
However surprisingly in May 2016, George Zimmerman sold the gun that killed Trayvon Martin for $250,000 by auction. Critics have stated he was seeking to profit from the killing. This shows his true colours!
