Perhaps those of us that took some delight in George Zimmerman’s rescue of a family of four last week should have better anticipated the possible fallout from a cult prone to irrational violence:
The family rescued by George Zimmerman after a rollover crash in Florida are terrified they will become targets for hate mobs who have made death threats to the neighborhood vigilante.
Mark and Dana Michelle Gerstle told friends they do not want to talk publicly about Zimmerman for fear they will be accused of portraying him as a hero – and face a backlash from those who consider he got away with murder.
‘They are very grateful to Zimmerman for what he did, but they do not want to get involved,’ said a friend, who asked not to be named.
It’s bad enough Zimmerman took his life into his own hands to do a good and decent thing. Now this poor family he rescued is living in fear.
All because of the tribal, vicious, savage nature of the unthinking mob.
