George Zimmerman’s Dad: ‘If FBI Agents Come And Kick In His Door, He’s Probably Gonna Shoot A Few Of Them’
After George Zimmerman shot and killed unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, he has become more fearful even to the point of his father worrying that his son will kill FBI agents.
In an attempt to rebrand his image, Robert Zimmerman Jr., George’s brother, told GQ that he considered making the acquitted killer a reality star. “I learn a lot from watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Robert said.
[su_center_ad]Robert and George’s little sister, Grace, declared,”We need to get guns!” when she saw the first news report on her phone.
The Zimmermans already owned at least ten guns altogether, between Grace and her fiancé, her two brothers, and her parents. Grace went on to buy herself a new Taurus pistol.
The paranoia is palpable:
They watched the movie Argo to learn how to live like CIA. Code names for everyone. No mail delivered to the house. No visitors. No talking to the few neighbors they had. No long phone conversations—keep it short and vague to outwit surveillance. Never discuss your whereabouts via phone or text. Keep a weapon close by at all times. Robert slept with his gun. Still does.
And in case someone—or multiple someones—decided to mount an attack on the house, the Zimmermans pre-packed their own “go-bags” filled with everything they would need to flee in a rush, as well as what they called “footballs”—like the one President Obama has with the nuclear codes—that contained laptops, cell phones, and other essential electronics.
They also memorized a color-coded threat-ID system. Code blue: Law enforcement at the door. Code brown: Draw your weapons. Code black: Come out guns blazing.
The most frightening part of the GQ interview, was when George’s father, Bob, said his son’s big fear right now is that he’ll be charged with federal civil rights violations for the Martin shooting.
“He’s worried,” Bob said, “that if FBI agents come and kick in his door, he’s probably gonna shoot a few of them.”
Many of us are also worried that George will shoot someone else. Thank Republicans for pouring in donations so that George could buy more weapons, if he takes another life. It’s a toss up on whether this guy will go off the rails.
