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.

If you didn't have all these "yahoo's and hoodlums" out there looking for thier own sense of justice before trial, he wouldn't need protection, but all they see is a "white person" shot a black kid.

BB not bb and others if you think Zimmerman is white you guys have no idea what a white person looks like. To be white your Ancestry has to come frim Europe and and not in North Africa or middle east and many Eastern Europeans aren't even white there are mixed with asians.Those cultures are mixed with everything beside white. I am black and you people saying he is white is so stupid not only he doesn't look white at all. All my boyfriends have been white men. Celtic,English and German types. This men isn't bulit like a real white men and his Ancestry is Native Indian of South America,European and African Ancestry so he is multiracial. So with all what I have written he is not white period. I know a white person when I see one. I live in Canada I can majority of the time tell a real white person from a fake one. Like here in Canada allot of white folks claiming to be white are actaully metis white and native mixed. So I have an eye and can tell whos white and whos not.

The lawyers just want to keep the funds that he has for themselves !!

I'm sick of people like Lindsay Lohan & now George Zimmerman running up bills & refusing to pay them !!

If the rest of hardworking Americans can pay their bills.. they can too !!

Zimmerman should not have been imprisoned at all. He operated within his rights of self defense. Travvon was not the innocent little boy portrayed in the pictures as they led every one to believe. Now go ahead and take your shots liberals

It's crazy how people are taking up for this guy and it was a black and white issue. We all heard the tape the 911 operator told him not to confront the kid but he did anyway. I am a black male and no matter what I am wearing I still get profile I once was while wearing a polo, dockers and loafers its sad but that's how a lot of people are not just white but all races have racist people its sad because they are missing out a lot never judge a book by its cover!

A"stand your ground" law is unnecessary.
Anyone has a right to defend themselves with all reasonable force. You can defend with lethal force only when you are facing a life threatening situation.
