What is your theory on Mark Gerstle's accident that made George Zimmerman a hero

    What is your theory on Mark Gerstle's accident that made George Zimmerman a hero?

    Super Sleuths are trying to determine whether or not there was an accident.  Was it staged?  Did it happen but George was not there?  There are no pictures and no one is talking!  http://dianetrotter.hubpages.com/hub/Sa … olled-over

    Hmm... I have a few things to say on this issue. It's certainly an interesting topic for discussion but here are my thoughts:

    -There will be people who do all they can to run Zimmerman through the mud from here until his death (and most likely after as well).
    -There are people who will defend his every action, no matter what evidence comes to the surface.

    I try to be careful of conspiracy theories as each has an agenda in mind. Fragments of truth or partial evidence is compiled to fit that agenda. Not saying this is necessarily a conspiracy theory, but it has that appearance.

    I personally feel the silence from the accident victims is due to the fact they were receiving death threats for helping Zimmerman. Were they complicit? I have no clue and see no reason why I should choose one way or the other.

    As far as the media goes, I feel like they would want Zimmerman to be guilty of orchestrating this event. It would make for the best story of the year, by far. The silence heard in the wake of the accident would be screaming if some kind of solid evidence was found that he truly had a hand in staging it.

    After Sandy Hook and the Boston Bombings, similar stories popped up online with different takes on what happened. I think these alternate tellings of what actually happened can truly suck people in and consume them almost like a bitterness inside.

    I personally feel like we'll never know the full truth about almost every event in life that takes place outside of ourselves. I've gone down the rabbit hole of trying to figure things out on my own with similar situations and had to stop myself. In an age where truth is either buried or half truths and lies are easily spread, I can only judge for myself what I personally know to be true!

    " Seminole County Sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said in a statement that deputies responding last Wednesday afternoon to the wreck in Sanford — the Orlando suburb where Martin was shot — found Zimmerman and another man had already helped a couple and their two children out of a flipped SUV off the road near Interstate 4.
    Zimmerman spoke with a deputy at the scene and then left, the sheriff's office statement said. He did not see the crash happen."

    I must first ask why anyone there would have been taking pictures. There were only a total of 6 people at the scene. The 2 adults and 2 children in the vehicle, Zimmerman, and one of person who assisted him. He did not stay at the scene for long, only long enough to make a statement. There is proof he was there because he provided a statement to the police who arrived on scene.
    As for his intentions no one will ever know, but he sure didn't act like he wanted to wait around for the media to show up. It wasn't even released to the media that he was there for almost a week.
    I still have to wonder why so many people want to continue to drag this man through the dirt. I wish the media and those who want to follow the media would spend half as much time trying to keep rapist in jail.

      I agree with you Peeples.  It'a all a lynch-mob mentality.
