It’s not funny any more, though it never really was.
George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in a Florida case that made national headlines, was involved in yet another violent incident.

Since the Martin incident, he has found it hard to stay out of the news with another alleged domestic violence and road rage incidents.

I won’t go over what my personal feelings about him and Trayvon Martin were - and remain.
I’ll just say this. I’m hoping there’s a way that this guy doesn’t get seriously hurt, and doesn’t seriously hurt anyone else.
It really is time to pray for him and everyone in his orbit. And I mean that sincerely. I’m hoping he’s working his way back to redemption, and hoping people would allow him to do just that.
