PEOPLE AND THEIR MONEY.

Updated on April 28, 2012

How they use it shouldn't be anybody's business.

Sending money to George Zimmerman, the night watchman, who killed Trayvon Martin in cold blood, is nothing short of sending money to a coward.

If Charles Manson should have received any monetary donation, after he had committed his crimes, it would have been a kind of "sacrilege" against humanity. So would be the contribution of any money to support Zimmerman, who killed an unarmed youth in a Florida suburb on Feb. 26, 2012.

A judge has ruled that he should not turn over the money to the authorities; but from the grand standing announcement given by his attorney, Mark O'Mara, of his client receiving any cash for his dastardly deed, the idea has infuriated many people.

What was America turning into? A nation that was involved in aiding and abetting criminals?

Zimmerman's family members have been everywhere in the case; first, they persuaded the Sanford police chief to release him on the very night that he committed the murder. Second, they were in court pleading for the bail bond of $1 million dollars to be reduced, testifying that, "they did not have the resources necessary to meet the higher level." (CNN, 04/28/12).

The bond was cut to a measly $150,000 dollars for him to get away the second time; and some people were being "flirtatious" of a murderer; and on top of that, contributing money to his defense. That should be considered in every respect an insane act on their part.

Did they think of how Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, the parents of Trayvon, would feel?

How on earth that someone has killed their child, and some people were sending the killer money? How could that happen? Who could those people be? Were they sadists or persons willing to pay for murder?

The questions were many; and there were no tangible answers to them, but only to think that those people did it out of hatred for Trayvon Martin. To them, the 17 year old boy must have been "in the wrong place at the wrong time"; and if so, that would be the most egregious situation to ponder.

Even, if Trayvon Martin was doing anything wrong, the night watchman could do a whole number of things to stop him or to cause his arrest. However, Trayvon was just walking home, and not trespassing, as he was a guest of his father's girlfriend living in that gated community.

He, Zimmerman, called 911, and a dispatcher told him to wait for the cops to take over; but for some reason or another, he ignored the dispatcher's advise and went on to kill Martin.

To those, who were sending money to Zimmerman, there could come a time, when they would be in the Martin family's shoes. Nobody was wishing that on them, but when that should happen, they would feel the same sadness and the agony that Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton were having the misfortune to feel now.

They could surely count on that.

What people did with their own money was nobody's business; but it would be good for them to think twice before they did so in a way that would not exacerbate a controversial matter like the killing of Trayvon Martin.

      How on earth could a fight like that happen from nowhere; or out of nothing?

      Zimmerman was told to stop following Trayvon Martin; why didn't he listen?

      What on earth made him to take his gun out?

      Was Martin doing anything; and if so, what was it?

      What has Martin's past history or bad record got to do with the night of his death?

      Was he the only person doing bad things on the social networks?

      What did a gold grill in his teeth and tattoos have to do with Zimmerman shooting him?

      I don't know you, and you don't know me; would you shoot me in the street? If so, for what reason?

      Who would start making trouble; the man with a gun or a boy, who was unarmed?

      Could you truthfully answer any of the questions listed above?

      Maybe Trayvons parents should have been thinking about their child way before he was killed! Had they been good parents I believe Trayvon would be alive today! Trayvon was on his 3rd suspension from school! His parents signed off for him to get a tattoo at the age of 15 as a child! Children need to mature before getting tats! They paid for him to get a gold grill in his teeth! Trayvon had gangter tweets on the net and a picture of himself giving the world the finger! Trayvon threatened the life of Zimmerman, beat his head into the pavement and told him he would be dead before the night was over!............anybody in that situation with a gun should and would have killed him! His parents should be in jail for not supervising this little thug and turning him into a model citizen!
