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.

FFS. This was from when before he was arrested.


Now that he's out of the system, anyone can kill that bloated tick for free.

THE HYPOCRISY IN THIS WORLD IS OVERWHELMING SOMETIMES. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY BLACK PEOPLE COMMIT VIOLENT CRIMES ON A REGULAR BASIS COMPARED TO WHITE PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY? IT IS A STAGGERING DIFFERENCE. AND THE SAD SAD SAD SAD THING IS WHITE PEOPLE OUTNUMBER BLACK PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY 11 TO 1. SO LETS GET THIS STRAIGHT SO YOU ALL UNDERSTAND WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY. EVEN THOUGH WHITES OUT NUMBER BLACKS BY SUCH A GREAT AMOUNT BLACKS STILL MANAGE TO COMMIT MORE VIOLENT CRIMES THEN US. I AM NOT RACIST HOWEVER I AM JUST POINTING OUT SOMETHING THAT BOGGLES MY MIND. AND SAY FOR INSTANCE GZ WASN'T DEFENDING HIMSELF WHEN HE SHOT TRAYVON AND IT WAS ALL FABRICATED, BLACKS COMMIT ACTS OF VIOLENCE TOWARDS WHITE PEOPLE LIKE THIS ON A DAILY BASIS AND NOBODY EVER GIVES IT A SECOND THOUGHT. BUT GOD FORBID A WHITE MAN KILLS A BLACK BOY THE WORLD HATES HIM AND HE NOW HAS A 1 MILLION DOLLAR BOUNTY ON HIS HEAD. GOD FORBID I SAY THE WORD ****** IN FRONT OF A BLACK PERSON. LOL. BUT GO AHEAD CALL ME A CRACKER...I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT THE WORLD CRACKER MEANS. I HOPE TO GOD THE TERM ISN'T BASED OFF OF THE COLOR OF A SALTINE. NOT THAT IT WOULD INFURIATE ME BUT RATHER BECAUSE IT IS SOMETHING A 5 YEAR OLD WOULD COME UP WITH. OK HERE IS A SCENARIO. A WHITE PERSON PLAYS THE KO GAME AND KILLS AN ELDERLY BLACK PERSON IN THE PROCESS. HOW DOES SOCIETY REACT?? HE BECOMES THE MOST HATED MAN IN AMERICA. NOW THE REASON WHY I CHOSE THIS SCENARIO IS THAT BECAUSE IT HAPPENED EXCEPT INSTEAD OF A WHITE GUY PLAYING THE GAME IT WAS A YUP YOU GUESS IT BLACK TEENAGE WANNABE THUG. SURE HE WENT TO PRISON BUT DID WHITES EXPRESS OUTRAGE AND OFFER A BOUNTY ON HIS HEAD? DID THE NAAWP( NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF WHITE PEOPLE) GET INVOLVED?? AND YEAH I KNOW THERE IS NOT SUCH AN ORGANIZATION...THE REAL NAME OF THE ORGANIZATION IS CALLED THE US GOVERNMENT. ANYWAYS SADLY THERE IS AN HYPOCRISY IN THE COUNTRY LIKE NO OTHER HYPOCRISY IN THE WORLD. IT IS ALMOST AS BAD AS MICHELLE OBAMA PUSHING A CAMPAIGN TOWARDS HEALTHY EATING AND THEN GOING TO A BURGER JOINT AND STUFFING HER FACE WITH ABOUT 3 LBS OF ARTERY CLOGGING GREASE. OR MAYBE IT IS AS BAD AS OBAMA PUSHING FOR STIFFER PUNISHMENTS ON HARD DRUG USERS WHEN HE USED TO USE COCAINE IN COLLEGE ON A REGULAR BASIS. AND THIS IS JUST A RUMOR BUT I WOULDN'T DOUBT IT TO BE REAL BUT I HEARD ON LIMBAUGH THAT A FEW OF OBAMA'S COLLEAGUES FROM HIS OLD HARVARD DAYS CAME FORWARD AND SAID THAT OBAMA ACTUALLY USED TO SELL THE DRUG TO THEM. NOW I DON'T KNOW IF HE WAS JUST GETTING SOME FOR A FRIEND OR IF HE WAS USING THAT MONEY TO FINANCE HIS WAY THROUGH COLLEGE BUT WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE HE IS STILL GUILTY. NOW I COULD CARE LESS IF HE DID OR NOT, BUT SHOULD WE PRACTICALLY CASTRATE A PRESIDENT FOR SMOKING MARJUANA ( CLINTON) AND NOT EVEN BLINK AN EYE TOWARDS OBAMA FOR ADMITTING COCAINE ABUSE?? AND HE IS SO FULL OF **** HE SAID HE TRIED IT. EVERYONE KNOWS YOU JUST DON'T TRY IT LOL. ONCE YOU DO IT ONCE YOU WANT MORE. BEING THAT HE IS ADDICTED TO NEWPORTS AS WELL IM ASSUMING HE HAS AN ADDICTIVE PERSONALITY. AND WHAT THE HELL KIND OF PRESIDENT SMOKES CIGARETTES?? IF YOU ASK ME A PRESIDENT SHOULD BE THE ULTIMATE ROLE MODEL, NOT THAT THERE HAVE BEEN MANY GREAT WHITE PRESIDENTS, BUT COME ON WE ELECTED A MAN WHO WAS ONCE ADDICTED TO COCAINE. LOL AND ISN'T IT IRONIC THAT EVERY OTHER DAY ON TMZ THERE IS A BLACK PERSON GOING TO PRISON FOR TAX EVASION OR FAILURE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT? YET WE ELECT A BLACK PERSON WHO HAS THE ULTIMATE SAY IN WHERE THE UNITED STATES MONEY GOES?? IS THERE A REASON BESIDES STUPIDITY THAT OBAMA HAS INCREASED THE NATIONAL DEBT BY 11 PERCENT SINCE HE WAS ELECTED INTO OFFICE??? DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY YEARS THE DEBT TOOK TO GET WHERE IT IS AT NOW??? ABOUT 87.AND IN THE COURSE OF OBAMAS PRESIDENCY HE HAS DONE WHAT MOST PRESIDENTS WOULD DO IN 8 YEARS ASSUMING THAT WE WERE BASING THIS OFF OF AN AVERAGE BUT THE TRUTH IS MOST OF OUR DEBT WAS INCURRED DURING TIMES OF WAR AND DURING THE GREAT DEPRESSION. WELL IVE SAID TOO MUCH. GZ WAS PROVEN INNOCENT BY A REASONABLE DOUBT BY A JURY OF HIS PEERS SO WHY CANT THE BLACK RACE JUST ACCEPT THE FACT THAT HE IS INNOCENT? MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T BE BLAMING ZIMMERMAN HOWEVER FOR THE DEATH OF TRAYVON MARTIN. HELL THERE ARE A LOT MORE WORTHWHILE SCAPE GOATS THEN ZIMMERMAN. PERHAPS YOU CAN LOOK INTO THE RAP CULTURE AND LOOK AT THE NEGATIVE INFLUENCE THEY CREATE ON OUR CHILDREN. MAYBE TRAYVON HAD A THUG MENTALITY?? WE ALREADY KNOW HE LIKED TO SELL WEED FIGHT AND WEAR GOLD TEETH WHILE GIVING THE MIDDLE FINGER. IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCK AND QUACKS LIKE A DUCK ITS A DUCK. OR PERHAPS YOU SHOULD BLAME THE STATE OF FLORIDA FOR CREATING THE STAND YOUR GROUND LAW THAT ULTIMATELY GAVE ZIMMERMAN THE CONFIDENCE TO PULL THE TRIGGER. I MEAN TECHNICALLY ZIMMERMAN WAS JUST STANDING HIS GROUND WHEN HE SHOT TRAYVON. OR ATLEAST THE JURY THAT LET HIM GO SEEMED TO THINK SO. AND I KNOW THEY DID NOT TRY THE CASE BASED OFF OF THE STAND YOUR GROUND LAWS, BUT THE LAW EXISTS NOW DOESN'T IT? HAD IT NOT AND GZ NEVER TOOK CLASSES THAT EXPLAINED EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS AND WHEN EXACTLY IT COMES INTO PLAY DURING A CONFRONTATION SUCH AS THE ONE HE HAD THAT NIGHT WITH TRAYVON HE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE NEVER PULLED THE TRIGGER SO BLAME THE GOVERNMENT FOR THAT ONE. BUT YEAH I HAVE TO GO MY CAR ALARM IS GOING OFF NOW. WAIT MAYBE ITS NOT MY CAR ALARM THEN AGAIN A FAMILY OF BLACKS JUST MOVED IN DOWN THE ROAD I BETTER GO CHECK.

I think he should never actually get killed...just scare the **** outta him with threats and fear for the rest of his life. Much worse than death :)

There are so many other crimes of black on white and other races but no one ever knows them cause it doesn't made a huge headline. So tired of this hate crime **** and people jumping on the band wagon since this was a big deal trial. There are crimes against other races that are far worse then this but all the naive people who follow this are blind to the rest of the murders against race. People need to stop this crap and just leave it alone. No one knows what the other person is thinking when they kill someone but most people are quick to point the fingers and whether u like it or not, they turn it into a hate crime against races. Just drop it already people.

That's what he gets for opening his big mouth! It's not like he's difficult to spot, he probably looked like a beached whale on the beach! This 'girlfriend' needs to take her daughter out of this situation. The little girl is innocent and the only one I feel sorry for.
