George Zimmerman is being hailed a HERO in Florida this morning ... after cops say he helped RESCUE a family of 4 from an overturned vehicle just days after the Trayvon Martin verdict.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office tells TMZ ... around 5:45 pm on Wednesday July 17, Zimmerman noticed an overturned SUV off a highway in Sanford, FL ... and sprang into action.

According to the SCSO, Zimmerman and another man approached the car and helped all 4 of the passengers -- 2 parents and 2 children -- get out of the wrecked car.

Cops say ... "Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the deputy.  There were no reports of injuries to the vehicle occupants."

Look at that smug little smile he has on his fat potato head face. At the end of the day, he still killed a kid that didn't deserve to die. All the PR stunts, like this one right here, won't change the fact that he is still a murderer.

SOOO WHAT    

Ain’t that a beotch get off on killing a black person and rescue a family the next freakin day. Good ole Seminole County this is giving me flashbacks of Rosewood Florida in Levy County where the lynching took place in 1923. Hummmmm wonder if there were some Zimmerman’s there too.
This guy is a P.O.S and he will get his so keep that grin on your face because it’s gonna come off real soon your know??????

69% of the pole thinks he's a hero?!?!?!?!?!? i think 69% of you have your heads up your ass if you believe this is even true! he "noticed" a car overturned?
**** sounds fabricated and at best sounds staged...he probably caused an accident so he can pretend hes a cop and look like the good guy just like he made up a reason to stalk trayvon and shoot him...

Watched on TV recently a black man who was acquitted for shooting two white guys but no outcry? Lots of people are dying because of this law which seems to be ok with many states. Hate the law – not the people.
It's never okay to destroy innocent people's property or loot because you don't like a verdict.

Yeah, yeah. Unfortunately most people hate somebody! I know blacks that hate blacks, whites that hate whites, Chinese that hate Chinese, Muslims that hate Muslims, Christians that hate Christians, etc. I'm sick of hearing about racist! This is about a law that many states embrace.

George Z is a bully who knew the law, racially profiled and harassed an innocent boy, gets his ass kicked and then pulls out a gun like a COWARD! I give Georgie less than a year to live...
