The beat goes on as Mark O’Mara continues to shamelessly pimp for his client.
George Zimmerman, the Florida man who fatally shot an unarmed Florida teenager last year, wears a disguise and a bulletproof vest whenever he is in public, his attorney said.
“He never feels safe,” Mark O’Mara, his lawyer, told FoxNews.com. “His security has been cut and he stays inside his secure location all day long due to threats.”
As a result of the confinement, Zimmerman’s health has taken a turn for the worse, O’Mara said. He gained about 100 pounds in six months and is stressed about the threats and his upcoming murder trial, which is set to begin on June 10.
“If I was confined to four rooms all day I bet I’d gain a lot of weight, too,” O’Mara said.
Next time you see the Michelin Man wearing sunglasses while standing in line at the Donut Shop, be sure to tap him on the shoulder and ask him for his autograph. Maybe he will give it to you for free, although I would not bet the ranch.
On second thought, we don’t need you to do that because this Afro Peruvian descendant of African kings might pull out a gun and blow away your heart.
Now prepare yourself for this fine example of journalism at its finest:
Last year, Zimmerman spotted Trayvon Martin walking through his neighborhood, a gated community, in Sanford, Fla. Martin was walking back to a house he was staying at in the community after a trip to a convenience store.
Zimmerman started to follow him because he thought he looked suspicious. Despite a police dispatcher telling him “you don’t have to do that,” Zimmerman got out of his truck to pursue Martin.
They got into a fight and Martin was shot.
You gotta love that integrity.
But wait, there’s more:
O’Mara said he talks with Zimmerman every day. He said the couple relies on donations to survive since neither one can hold down a job.
He said Zimmerman, who previously aspired to be a judge, looks forward to the trial to begin, but has been disenfranchised about the legal proceedings thus far.
To be sure, even if his client is acquitted, O’Mara said he will likely never feel safe in his hometown or Florida.
“He’d have to go somewhere where nobody knows him,” O’Mara said.
So, O’Mara and his client are a “couple” and poor George is wearing bulletproof vests and disguises while he steadily eats himself to death because he doesn’t get to vote on the outcome of his trial.
Excuse me, while I cry me a river of tears.
