George Zimmerman

Flees Miami After Death Threat

2/18/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0217-george-zimmerman-01George Zimmerman fled Miami after someone threatened there was a huge bounty on his head.

Zimmerman taped an interview last Tuesday with Univision and Fusion, and then took his girlfriend, her kid and his brother to the beach.  While they were catching some rays, people noticed him, started harassing him, and then someone shouted out George had a $10,000 bounty on his head.

We're told it freaked him out and they all retreated to the hotel, but the crowd followed them.

Security swept their room to make sure no one tampered with their stuff and then stood guard throughout the day and night.  We're told Zimmerman did his CNN interview early the next morning and then beat it ... literally fleeing Miami.

Fact is ... the bounty threat seems somewhat real.  There's a Black Panthers video online in which one of the leaders puts a $1 MILLION bounty on Zimmerman's head.

Did you know that the only coverage regarding the initial incident was local (TV News & 2 newspapers), and was reported as a fight between two people in an area known for occasional violence? Or that this story stood little chance of attracting significant media attention? The Martin’s enlisted the help of a civil rights attorney, pro bono, named Benjamin Crump, and Crump hired a publicist named Ryan Julison. Julison contacted all the large media sources, working his way down until Reuters and CBS ‘This Morning‘ showed interest. The rest is history. Wonder what would be different today if it weren’t for a publicist. If you have interest in mapping the Trayvon Martin media controversy, I suggest looking up the MIT study. It’s very insightful.

Oh please. African American are the cause of 79% of theft, murders, abuse, etc. in this country. Not to mention, half of all black people depend on welfare & raise their kids in the ghetto & they turn out to be thugs. Before you guys want "justice" learn how to be DECENT HUMAN BEINGS.

Come fine me bitiches    

F@#K George Zimmerman that guy deserves what he has coming to him but F@#k the Black Panthers too! This Mofos think America still owe them something that's a joke. No one is walking around killing young black kids if any thing most of young of black and Hispanic kids are being shot down by us the minorities not the white man. As a Hispanic I know us minorities need to work harder then the white man to get ahead in life but not once do I think America owes me anything. Slavery ended long time ago get over it. you don't see us complaining that California still belongs to Mexico. Instead of bitching about it we are taking it over slowly but surely by populating it with Hispanics and Interracial babies.

OK    

I have no sympathy for a guy who took the law into his own hands and shot and killed an unarmed teenage boy, then beats up his girlfriend. Run your cross-eyed ass off the planet.

If the news keeps talking about it someone is actually going try something and make him a bigger celebrity when he legally defends himself or spend life in prison? The news needs to shut up about it.
