George Zimmerman Painting Nears $100,000 on eBay

Reuters

December 17, 2013

ORLANDO, Florida — Bids for an original oil painting by Trayvon Martin shooter, George Zimmerman, reached nearly $100,000 in a single day after the artwork was posted on auction site eBay on Monday.

The 98th and leading bid stood at $99,966 as of Tuesday morning, with four more days to go in the auction. The painting depicts part of an American flag washed in blue, and includes the words, "God," "one nation," and "with liberty and justice for all" printed in the flag stripes.

An opening day eight-hour bidding frenzy on the painting came to a halt at 6:21 p.m. PST, on Monday, according to the auction site.

Orlando 24-hour news station Central Florida 13 reported that it confirmed the authenticity of painting through Zimmerman's brother Robert. Robert Zimmerman did not immediately respond to an inquiry by Reuters.

A Florida jury acquitted Zimmerman in July of murdering 17 year old Martin, a black Miami high school student, in a case that polarized the nation around issues of racial justice, self defense and gun control.

In his eBay posting, Zimmerman described the 18-inch-by-24-inch auction item as, "first hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman."

Zimmerman added, "Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-) I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman."

Prosecutors in 2012, accused Zimmerman of profiling, following and shooting Martin, a guest in a gated neighborhood in the town of Sanford, as Martin was returning from a trip to a convenience store to buy Skittles and iced tea. Zimmerman claimed self defense.

Since his acquittal, Zimmerman has had several brushes with law enforcement officials. He has twice been stopped for speeding, once in Texas and in Florida.

In September, Zimmerman was questioned by police after his estranged wife called 911 saying he threatened her with a gun. He was not charged in the incident, which occurred a week after she filed for divorce.

Zimmerman was arrested in November on domestic violence charges which were dropped last week after his girlfriend withdrew her complaint.

Re: George Zimmerman Painting Nears $100,000 on eBay

here is one of the question & answers on the page.. "Q: A true winner is someone that figures out how to make lemmon aide from lemmons. I contributed to your legal defense fund. I am truly sorry our government run liberal media and justice department persecuted you they way they did. Dec-17-13
A: God Bless you. You have nothing to apologize to me for. The system is broken, an innocent man should not spend one second without his God given liberty, solely because a small sect of uneducated loud mouths. We must fix it. If we can't fix it together, then we owe many people a sincere apology. Your Friend,"
... *fart noise*... but i guess if people are willing to pay for items from gacy, manson & any other infamous being..why not zimmerman, right?

Is that Manson's face it there? It looks like a skinned face. It's a little to our left of center.

Gacy has some better ones. I have a Manson record someone gave me, lol!

I cannot believe people still find Zimmerman worth sending money to and that he is innocent

i noticed the face too but not sure who's it is.

to be honest, i personally avoided listening to the case at all.... i know the basics but i havent heard any testimony or even read both sides of the story. i just know the very broad strokes i sure as shit wouldnt be sending him money though...
