Here’s some pleasurable news for you at the tail end of a terrible week: A dude punched George Zimmerman in the face for bragging about shooting Trayvon Martin.
George Zimmerman called 911 after a man accusing him of bragging about the fatal shooting punched him in the face, authorities said.
Zimmerman claimed he was explaining to people sitting at a table that he shot Trayvon Martin in self- defense when a large man approached and asked, “You’re bragging about that?” before punching him Zimmerman in the face.
Well. Perfect. Zimmerman was at a diner in Sanford, Florida at the time.
Zimmerman is considered the victim in this case, but witnesses inside Gators Riverside restaurant told authorities that the problem started because Zimmerman was bragging about killing the unarmed teen in 2012.
Witnesses said they overheard Zimmerman say to someone, “I love your tattoos. My name is George Zimmerman, you know, that guy who killed Trayvon Martin?” Witness said Zimmerman also showed his identification card.
Zimmerman told a 911 operator that he thought the man was going to kill him, and requested officers to come right away.
Police did arrive, and said the man who punched Zimmerman may face charges. Personally, I think it should be legal for everyone to get to punch George Zimmerman in the face whenever they want.
Might make the world a more pleasant place.
