USA Today: George Zimmerman, the man whose acquittal on murder and manslaughter charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin set off a wave of protests across the nation, helped rescue a family from an overturned SUV four days after the verdict, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Monday.Not like it's a contest but did Trayvon Martin ever do anything but take drugs and get into trouble? Maybe Obama should put out a statement thanking Zimmerman instead of fanning the flames of racism!
The statement said that on Wednesday, at approximately 5:45 p.m. ET, the sheriff's office responded to a single car accident at an intersection in the Sanford, Fla., area not far from where Zimmerman, 29, shot Trayvon, 17, in February 2012. The statement said a blue Ford Explorer had run off the road and rolled over with a family of four inside.
When a deputy arrived at the scene, two men had already helped the family out of the SUV. One of the men was Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch coordinator in Sanford.
UPDATE: What if Zimmerman had not acted?
The Daily Caller has more details on the Zimmerman rescue. Apparently Zimmerman was on hand with a fire extinguisher fearing the vehicle would burst into flames. Zimmerman was criticized for not staying in his vehicle and minding his own business the night Trayvon was killed. But where those libs when this family needed help?
