George Zimmerman puts gun that killed Trayvon Martin up for auction
“I am honored and humbled to announce the sale of an American Firearm Icon,” Zimmerman wrote in his online description of the weapon.
Are you fucking kidding me?!
This man used that gun to take a child’s life. Clearly Zimmerman’s only remorse is the infamy the trial has awarded him because of it. And in case you miss my sarcasm, he has no remorse.
Every time I hear Zimmerman’s name I have to beg forgiveness for the thoughts that come into my mind. The idea that someone will bid on it, will actually buy it – I cannot begin to express the rage that fills me anew right now. I wonder what the jury that acquitted him must feel of their decision in light of this bullshit.
When people say Karma will get him, I generally nod in agreement. However, days like this, my faith in Karma and her twisted shenanigans wavers greatly and I doubt whether I will ever see that happen. Should I be so lucky, I am not going to lie – schadenfreude will be on full force that day.
I also cannot help, but think that was Trayvon Martin a white teen, that Zimmerman would be seen as a Hispanic thug killing innocent kids in a family oriented community. Alas, a white man “defending himself” is how it goes down in the official records. Situations like this reinforce the idea of how little a black life is worth in some eyes, how Zimmerman’s auction devalues Martin’s life even further, to the point of blatant mockery.
What profit’s a man indeed.
The fact that Zimmerman is walking around a free man doing this. Yes, he’s an American. Yes, he is well within his rights to do this.
To the person who purchases it – if your intent is anything other than to destroy the gun so no one else will profit off Trayvon Martin’s life – you are par of the problem.
I wonder what the general mood would be if O.J. Simpson auctioned off the infamous glove.
