Ass Protectors

Jacked Up Prices On Me

George Zimmerman
fired the security company he hired to protect him -- the company that's now suing him -- because of mysteriously high billing ... this according to Zimmerman's lawyer.

As we previously reported ... Associated Investigative Services filed a lawsuit against Zimmerman ... alleging he still owes $27,027 for its services.

However, Zimmerman's attorney tells TMZ his client felt "the billing got out of hand quickly. We trusted them to be efficient with their work and they weren’t." He claims Zimmerman dropped the security team because of concerns about the bills.

The attorney adds ... Zimmerman's supporters were paying the tab -- through the George Zimmerman Legal Defense Fund -- and he says, "I don’t believe those who have contributed to help George should be taken advantage of by such over-billing.”

We reached out to AIS about Zimmerman's claim -- so far, no word back.

If he thought the kid was packing then that would give him even more reason to retrieve from the situation. Even if the kid hit him he had no reason to shoot. He could have pinned him down. No that little potato head weasel killed a kid and it doesn't matter who was what race. He needs to st least go on probation tor ten years. His wife said in taped Congo that the incident actually turned into a positive thing for them because of all the donations. They make me want to vomit!

Here is my question: did the team get fired over overbilling and they are suing for the amount that the lawyers refused to pay because it wasn't in the original agreement? That is what it sounds like to me. I guess George is crafty enough to keep himself alive, maybe with God's help also.


I think George is an honest person and honesty will produce its own rewards. Things may look bad now but if he fired a crooked security team that tried to take advantage, he was just being honest and risking his own safety to protect the money he was given for his defense.


Can you imagine some Black Panther or wannabe shooting this man? The chaos that would ensue would be like a civil war. The blacks demanded that he be tried for defending himself against a murderous youth. If that isn't bad enough, now they want him dead on the street as well.


I still think about the man who said he was calling 911 and refused to go out and help George. If he had only pulled off Trayvon or went out to yell at him, then maybe this woudln't have happened. Instead he told George to stop yelling for help.


This stupid neighborhood that George risked his life trying to protect woudln't even help him as he screamed for his life. This is the messed up society we are in. No wonder he is being framed besides, framed for making blacks bloodthirsty.


White people should really stand up for their rights and stop taking this abuse. Black leaders are acting like enemies of the white race. This man is even barely white yet he has become a focal point for their hatred and instigating.


This country cannot be ruled by mob mentality.

$27,027 only pays for 27 hours and about a minute and a half of his $1,000/hour ATTORNEY, Mark O'mara. I think Zimmerman needs more than tiny $500 dollar (equal to 30 minute) donations.

Oh I see, chasing down and killing an unarmed guy who isn't doing anything illegal is self defense, and refusing to pay your bills is protecting supporters from being taken advantage of.. now that is some funny sh!t!! Ol Georgie Porgie will come up with any excuse to keep all those donated bucks right in his pockets.

He should hope he does get convicted and sent to jail, cause the alternative would just be hiding and living in fear for the rest of his life. If he doesn't have the cash to pay for round-the-clock protection, then he definitely doesn't have the cash to pay for major cosmetic surgery to change his appearance. It would be in his best interest to just plead guilty.
