George Zimmerman Rescues Somebody From Truck - Business Insider
George Zimmerman briefly emerged from hiding last week to pull people out of an overturned truck on a Florida highway, ABC News reports.
Zimmerman and another man reportedly helped a family of four, including two children, out of the overturned SUV before police arrived, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The SUV's occupants weren't injured, and Zimmerman apparently did not witness the crash.
It was the first time Zimmerman was seen in public after his acquittal on second-degree murder charges for the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. His lawyers say that he now wears a bullet proof vest when he goes out in public, according to ABC.
The "not guilty" verdict spawned violent protests across the country, and Zimmerman has received many death threats.
Details about the rescue are scarce, but police confirmed the news today. The Florida Highway Patrol is now handling the case. The truck had apparently rolled over in a crash at the intersection of a Florida highway.
Regardless of what anybody thinks about Zimmerman's actions or his acquittal, I thought it was interesting that he would briefly emerge from hiding to help a family in a moment of need. Since the trial, even his parents have received death threats. Comments?

^^^^Clicky- It still won't convince the haters of anything. The car could've been on fire & it still wouldn't change some people's minds about him. Sadly, I haven't heard of any stories of arrests made for those making the death threats. Guess they're just too busy to deal with it. Hopefully it's just talk & no one actually makes good on those threats. :(

Meanwhile in Milwaukee the crazy old white man who shot a 13 year old boy who happened to be black because he *thought* he stole his shot guns is not national news. http://news.yahoo.com/wis-man-killed-neighbor-teen-gets-life-term-192303021.html;_ylt=AoedK3vwgJ_TKWo3mW60HuMJVux_;_ylu=X3oDMTJhbmtrdHVxBG1pdANBVFQgMyBTdG9yeSBKdW1ib3Ryb24gSG9tZSBDYWNoZWQEcG9zAzM2BHNlYwNNZWRpYUF0dFdpZGdldHJvbkFzc2VtYmx5;_ylg=X3oDMTFkcW51ZGliBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANob21lBHB0A3BtaA--;_ylv=3
