George Zimmerman has been making headlines quite often these days. Now, he’s in the news yet again. According to Cream BMP Daily, the man responsible for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin is reportedly dead. However, the truth of the matter is Zimmerman is not dead.
As a matter of fact, he’s very much alive and well. The hoax was published by the satire site and has since gone viral. For those who aren’t aware this is the same site that claimed Baton Rouge rapper Lil’ Boosie had been arrested 30 minutes after he’d been released from a four-year prison sentence.
The publication reports that Zimmerman was found dead at a Florida gun range after accidentally shooting himself while trying to reload his weapon. The report also indicated the 911 responders were “in no rush” to retrieve Zimmerman’s lifeless body.
“God freed Boosie and killed Zimmerman. I’d say today was a good day,” the 911 responder said.
The first responder went on to share his opinion of Zimmerman’s alleged death, and why they opted not to “rush” to his aid. “I’m not saying we took our time getting there, but we’ve shown up faster to black neighborhoods”
The first responder also revealed that “they stopped at every light, didn’t use a siren and drove behind an elderly woman all before finally arriving on the scene.” He went on to compare Zimmerman’s death to that of a rapper. “If he was a rapper he’d be more famous now that he’s dead, but nope! Everybody just glad he dead.”
The report goes mention a statement issued by an Orlando sheriff. The sheriff admitted that he “doesn’t plan to fully investigate for foul play as they don’t want to waste tax money on a death that was going to happen one way or another.”
