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.

The harsh reality is sooner or later, someone is going to kill him. I think the vast majority of people would conclude that after the verdict. Not that I wish anything bad on him, but I would find it poetic justice if the person got off using the same law that protected his butt.

This is the problem...this Guy is CREATING racial tension by putting the onus of Trayvon's death on "White America." Which makes for a great soundbite for a Public Enemy record, but George Zimmerman was latino. White America was not in play. The jury was of mixed race and gender that let him go free. Do I agree with the verdict? No. Do I think George Zimmerman is a tool? Yes. But these WANNA-BE Panthers, that are a sad shell of what the Civil Rights Freedom Fighters USED to be, are doing more to instigate a race problem than solve one.

I wonder what would've happened if a white man rose up and put a bounty on OJ's head after his trial? What would've happened if white guys dressed in military fatigues showed up talking 'race protection enforcement' after Autmn Pasquale was killed by two black teenagers in New Jersey? All of it would've been considered offensive,m racist, violence-instigating and hate-filled, right?

So, how is THIS allowed to happen without outrage?

Everyone knows Zimmerman should be in jail so should Casey Anthony, but their free. I'm surprised them & their family hasn't been killed a lot of people are furious.

When zimmerman shoots and kills the person who is trying to "capture" him and the person is african american, I don't want to hear **** about a racial killing. Do the black panthers not realize how idiotic they look in this video ? They bitch about Trayvon and his " innocence" then they make a video promoting violence and criminalization.

Listen, I don't agree with Zimmerman by any stretch of the imagination, but this right here is where the double standard in our society exists. It's OK for a black group namely the Black Panthers to put BOUNTIES out on people's heads, with no repurcusions, however, if a white group put a bounty out on a black person who raped or killed a white person, all hell would break loose. Lets be real, this is exactly the double standard that goes. what's good for the goose is good for the gander, and frankly it's illegal for the Black Panthers to make such a direct threat, and I hope they're prosecuted as well. We let this go because we're terrified of stepping on toes, and enough is enough. If a black person can use the N word, so can a white person, and if a black group can put a bounty on a white persons head, then vice versa. Enough already !!!!!!!!!!! Stop crying foul when it's done to you, and then you turn tail and do the same behavior you don't want done to your kind. It's sick and demented, and I'm tired of it.

But but but... Miami is where all the Hispanics are! You mean they didn't welcome this white-identified faker with open arms? Whaaaat? Wasn't that the "proof" that he couldn't hate, after all?

Black Panthers. lol I walked up to the leader of the Indiana Black Panthers (Mmoja Ajabu) to ask him why he had people walking around Monument Circle with M16s. Two goons walked up with their M16s, but I wouldn't walk away and they wouldn't lay a hand on me. I was 19 and stupid. lol He ran for state senate and I still have one of his campaign posters on my dart board. Now, his loser son Kofi is in prison for murder. The Black Panthers are one big joke.

This is just flat out ignorance why kill him death is too good for him. He should live and suffer it will eat him up inside knowing he is one of the most hated people in these united states. They could offer all the money in the world its just not worth it to lose your soul for something that God will take care of when the time is right.

if Martin was on top of GZ when he was shot, why there no evidence of Martin's blood on GZ's clothes?
