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.

So I guess he'll be back making paypal requests? Or perhaps he'll say they slammed his head into the pavement and that they owe him.......

Poor baby. Can't believe this waste of space has "supporters". Is there really a "wish we could still lynch people" club? We'll of course there is. This is about to be 2013, not 1813. Zimmerman needs to face the same kind of uncertainty that Trayvon faced just walking home. Turn him loose without his security and his gun and lets see if he makes it home.

If you're dumb enough to pay for a vigilante's security team you most definitely deserve to be taken advantage of.
.
BTW, did the lawyer question the service before or AFTER he paid out 40k?

Hey, George, no one wants to kill you, No one has ever wanted to kill you, You are a self-important f---. You are the one the community needs to be protected from, no the other way around.

If the ghetto 18 year old African American attacked George and tried to take his gun away, of course, natural reaction would cause you to shoot first. I am not sure why liberal media twist things. I do not watch bias news anymore.

Then you get them on the phone and inquire about the bills. You negotiate/demand a revised bill. You don't just not pay someone for services they rendered. His lawyer is as much of an asshat as he is.

If he's found not guilty will all the haters offer an apology? No doubt Sharpton and Jackson will be the first to say they are sorry.. NOT...

No they should only be taken advantage of by Zimmerman's attorney and Georgie himself and his wife. SMH.
