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.

And at the end of it all, the ****ty neighborhoods of Miami are still gonna be ****ty because people that "care" about the community spent $10,000 on this instead of fixing up the community.

This world is so ignorant and hateful. THEY COULDNT FIND EVIDENCE that marked Zimmerman the killer of the kid. Wether he is racist or not, we all have the moments where we hate a certain somebody because we stereotype. We are all human. This "leader" should be arrested. Leave the man alone. You are all falsly accusing a man of a blinded case.

How is it that there can not be no KKK but yet there is a black panther. If one is wrong So the **** is the other. That B. P. leader needs reminded about the the crimes against whites by bks that go un tried. If the B. P.'s can exist, So can the KKK. Fair is fair. If there can be a B.E.T., There also can be a W.E.T ! tHE BIGGEST DANGER TO THE HUMAN RACE IN GENERAL IS THE LACK OF SOME COMMON SENSE PERIOD. Aren't bounty's like these illegal ? If these B. P. *******S CAN DO IT, SO CAN I. FAIR IS FAIR !

Stupid stupid people. If you think he murdered the man then so be it but threatening to kill him and putting a bounty on his head makes you no better. And people wishing him dead is just as ****ing stupid. You people keep saying he won't go away, yet the news media hounds him every step he takes. He gets a ticket the media is there, he walks down the road the news media is there, he takes a **** and the news media is there. Don't blame him, blame the media. You people keep dwelling on the past and something you can never change so move on.

They are crazy. He has already been tried for murder and was found not guilty. We don't have double jeopardy in America. They would have to charge him with something else. I think they thought of all of this and they have nothing. I of all people even though I'm white, think that Zimmerman deserves way more punishment. That its not fair every day he gets fame, and fortune from t his tradegy. But I find comfort in the bible that says "Justice is mine, sayth the Lord."

While I think Zimmerman is guilty I cannot stand the bp they are a hate group and should be classified as such. Come on white America. ..WTF is he talking about? There is way more black on black violence then vice versa. He says white people have had 400 years to get it right . Get what right? Slavery was abolished was it not ? This guy and his party are the definition of racist. They also showed up In Brunswick Ga where little Antonio Santiago was murdered by a black teen protesting his arrest.. People like this make me sick and scared for our communities

This article contains untrue "facts." As usual, when ingesting anything coming from the media, take it with a box of salt.
