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.

First, I hope someone collects on this bounty because zimmerman deserves some street justice. However, why is it so much worse when a white person kills a black person, but if a black person kills a white person or a black person, it's ok? Then its free my brother, look at C-Murder. Or better yet, if a white person kills a white person, it's all a joke and we're just crazy whities? It's so ridiculous, zimmerman should have had to pay for what he did. Regardless of stand your ground, he killed an innocent kid.

No one has the balls to kill him just a bunch of talk you think if there was really a million dollar bounty he would still be walking to the beach. Bunch of BS

Let the manhunt begin...that's what he gets for putting himself out there for a dumb PPV fight that didn't happen...and more importantly, taking the life of a kid who felt he was being bothered. Maybe now Georgie will really disappear.

Do you know why there is less outrage when its black on white crime? Because the black person always gets convicted, meaning justice gets served. How many blacks who kill blacks or whites don't convicted, walk free and become celebrities? Stop using this article to garner white sympathy.

Well, in truth, Zimmerman absolutely is a threat to the public. He's already killed one black teen. If there's a bounty on his head it's in self-defense.

I'll go ahead and concede I don't care what happens to Zimmerman, especially after the circus show he created with talk of a celebrity fight. That's beyond the pale. If these other idiots are seriously studying law and speaking with attorneys, how did they miss that they would charged with (and subsequently sued for) kidnapping, false imprisonments, and probably assault? Everyone on the fringe is an idiot apparently.
