Trayvon Martin Shooter George Zimmerman Launches Website for Supporters

George Zimmerman, who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, has launched a website, to quote “ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries."

Zimmerman's lawyer confirmed the authenticity of the website, which includes a PayPal link noting the media attention’s severe impact on his life since the shooting, and encouraging donations to help support his legal and living expenses. While there is no account from Zimmerman concerning the night of the shooting, he assures visitors, "the facts will come to light."

On one of the site’s pages, titled “Race,” a Thomas Paine quote says, “The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.” The site also includes a photo of graffiti saying, “long live Zimmerman,” which is reportedly from a vandalized black cultural center at Ohio State University.
