I saw a news article about his website raising funds for his legal defense  http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/George-Zimmerman-Getting-Website-for-Defense-in-Trayvon-Martin-Shooting-146418425.html

Just like WikiLeaks and other people the System wants to slam he is accepting donations, I think this would be a great case for making a donation with bitcoins for his legal defense, his website with a contact form is at http://therealgeorgezimmerman.com and or you can use the other methods he lists to donate.

Thanks.

There had been some donations of one cent ($0.01) from people thinking that the donation through PayPal would trigger a $0.30 fee and then Zimmerman would lose money.  PayPal's fees don't work that way .. the fee is the lesser of amount paid or $0.30, whichever is lower.  So all those donations less than or equal to $0.30 go straight to PayPal's revenue from fees.

I've read several articles on this case, and I've been leaning toward the side of Trayvon Martin. There's a heck of a lot of people in his court (rest his sole) that have the potential of seeing a FirstBit of 1Trayvon..............a4cV if a Bitcoin donation site were established and such a vanity address created.

If you weren't there, everything you think you know of the case is wrong, with many multiple false portrayals in the media.  I think it would be wise to step back from armchair judgement and see how Zimmerman's usage of bitcoin would be good for bitcoin.  Opinions on this case are like assholes, everybody has one.

Good point, Andrew.

Regardless which side bitcoiners take in this case, it may shine a bad light on Bitcoin if the wrong side were chosen.

I'll wait for the investigative process and the grand jury. One possible outcome is that the whole thing is just a really unfortunate screw up, such things do happen.

So, just for fun, who else here besides me has ever used a firearm in self defense in a civillian context on their home soil? I'm not looking for military experience, I was quite enthusiastic about putting rounds downrange at the enemy, I know I connected more than a few times.

Gross.  You want to help raise funds for the racist asshole who chased after a kid with a gun for wearing a hoodie?  The cops told him to stay inside, and he chased the kid.  

George Zimmerman, who has a history of legal trouble, which his judge father kept him out of.  

False portrayals in the media?  How the hell do you know?  Did you listen to the 911 tape?  Did you hear the story of the person who was talking on the phone with Trayvon just before he was murdered?  Why would Trayvon charge at someone with a gun?  Yeah, that is really the most plausible explanation Roll Eyes  Even if he did charge at him, Zimmerman unequivocally created the situation when he should not have, by chasing him down the street in a threatening manner.

Why the hell would you want to support this scumbag?

Also, your title is inaccurate.  Zimmerman was not the victim.  The unarmed kid he shot was.

You mean the 6'3" young man that had Zimmerman pinned on the ground?  As was mentioned earlier, take a step back before you believe what the manipulative media is feeding you.

Watch out, Bruno.  Trayvon's parents might trademark that FirstBit as they have done with slogans such as "I am Trayvon," and "Justice for Trayvon."

Donating to the EFF was a publicity booster.

Tell me how would this boost bitcoin into the media?

The currency of drugs and now lynching! Hmmm. Are there bitcoin lynching services that might boom as a result of this publicity? If not, then I suggest you shelve your marketing idea.

So a "shooting victim" in the US of A is the person who killed the other person and now might get in legal trouble for that? Interesting point of view at least...

If you want to convince this guy to accept BTC, just write him a mail and pitch it to him or his lawyer. You don't really suggest any action like this in your OP other than generally donating for this cause... I think the "Bitcoin Discussion" forum might be the wrong one for a thread like this personally.

I'm on record for being in Trayvon's camp, but will certainly switch if new evidence is made available. That said, I would love to market Bitcoin as a donation option to this camp, but it would be the wrong thing to do on a couple different levels, one of which you've kindly pointed out, cunicula.

For sake of augment, let's say I'm in Andrew's camp and a majority of bitcoiners backed Zimmerman, want to see the results if Bitcoin were bought into the mix?

Quote
Attorneys confirmed to NBC News that the site, which domain records show was created Sunday, is real and is operated by Zimmerman himself. It solicits donations through PayPal with a promise that "any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment."

The Reverend Jesse Jackson called for a nationwide boycott of PayPal for allowing George Zimmerman to use their services to collect donations to pay for his living and legal expenses stemming from the uncalled for death of Trayvon Martin. Al Sharpton and members of the NAACP are expected to follow his lead, soliciting their supporters to follow suit.

I agree that there is some uncertainty as to exactly what happened but I'm not going to ignore the facts that have come out like much of the media likes to do.  There is a reason that someone is innocent until proven guilty and I'm quite disturbed to find so many people sentencing him before he gets a proper trial.

You realize that that does not apply in the USA anymore, right? Roll Eyes It is such a police state these days, and I have my doubts that a single TSA agent or police officer has ever read the Constitution or its amendments.

The constitution isn't just  the paper and its amendments, but a whole set of precedent and interpretation applied to them. The court is really the only thing that prevent the USA from turning outright into a mob ruled government. You may even say that it's probably the only reason why the US government have any legitimacy.

I haven't really followed the story very closely.  Can someone give a quick update on how this has turned into a race issue?
