George Zimmerman

Sued Over Bill

To Protect His Ass

It cost roughly $67,000 to keep Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman safe after his release from jail this summer -- and now, the security company that protected him from angry mobs and vigilante killers is suing him for a huge chunk of that bill.

Associated Investigative Services filed the lawsuit against Zimmerman and his attorneys, claiming they hired the firm in June to provide security "in anticipation of Mr. Zimmerman's release from incarceration while he was awaiting trial on felony criminal charges."

According to Associated, Zimmerman's lawyer faithfully paid $40,000 while the company continued to provide security services ... but then payments stopped and the bills piled up.

According to the lawsuit, Zimmerman's attorney told Associated his client could no longer afford the protection services -- partially because he still needs to pay for his defense in the upcoming second degree murder trial.

Associated wants the $27,027 it claims Zimmerman still owes.

I am so proud of George for standing strong and defending everyone's rights to live in a free and safe society. He didn't cave in and try to cop a plea or take blame for anything. He is innocent and he knows it.

NRA where are you? Step up and help this man. They could even get a posse of NRA members to volunteer to do security for George. Why not? He is an example of what gun rights are all about.

Crazed white men are prowling the dark looking for little black boys clutching Skittles and ice tea in the rain? More like crazed blacks are looking for any excuse to attack the white man, even if the guy only has maybe a quarter drop of white blood in him.

Why don't all those so called black leaders who stirred the racial pot and convicted him before the trial pay the bill. Will they apologize when he is found not guilty? The guy was just trying to protect his neighborhood and shot the guy in self defense.

Must See Video. Australians warn Americans not to give up gun rights. Don't listen to rabbling rousing racists and false flag psy ops. Wake up and stand up for your rights.

Karma:..... better off just waiting in jail until his trial . Could have saved himself a lot of money plus time served. But I should take my own advice like he should have and mind my own business
