Trayvon Martin: Seminole State College expels George Zimmerman

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-03-22/news/os-trayvon-martin-george-zimmerman-college-20120322_1_gated-community-seminole-state-college-insurance-agent



George Zimmerman was kicked out of Seminole State College today, in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting.

"Due to the highly charged and high-profile controversy involving this student, Seminole State has taken the unusual but necessary step this week to withdraw Mr. Zimmerman from enrollment," according to a statement from the college. "This decision is based solely on our responsibility to provide for the safety of our students on campus as well as for Mr. Zimmerman."

Zimmerman, 28, first enrolled at the college in 2003 and was working toward a vocational certificate to become an insurance agent. He re-enrolled in 2009 and was working toward an Associate in Arts degree in a general studies program, according to the college.



Good.

1. I'll second your "good"

and raise it to 'about time something happens to this murderer'. After this, arrest and investigation.

3. The right move

God knows which other black man he would have killed in "self defense".

Maybe in another 9 years he might have gone on to that.

6. Before the band plays and we all pat ourselves on the back

 

Remember the college isnt doing this out of respect for a dead child or for standing up for whats right. The college is doing this because it is afraid Zimmermanns continued presence will attract protestors, vandals, media, etc. the college is doing it for self serving reasons alone.

16. I think that's probably correct

 

He's a potential liability. I don't think it's often that schools expel students for something that happened off campus when no charges have been filed. They are worried about bad press.

10. 9 years in college? Assault/battery arrest? Domestic violence disputes? Garnished wages?

This guy sucked at life and he knew it.

He is an angry individual, hell, you can see the anger in his mugshot and hear the anger in his voice during 911 tapes. He was angry at the world and that's why he called 911 dozens of times to report no crimes whatsoever. He was itching to use his gun.

So he sees a black kid, a kid that got A's and B's in high school, and he takes his anger out on him.

Zimmerman is a piece of shit and deserves to rot in jail for the rest of his life for the murder of Trayvon.

12. That's the "squeaky clean record" the Sanford PD described to the press?

Really?

15. No argument here.

 

Unfortunately this country has shielded inhuman filth like this when they kill Black people. A college expulsion is a small gesture, let's hope that arrest and investigation is next. This reminds me of how long it took to even get Johannes Mehserle arrested after he shot Oscar Grant down in Fruitvale Bart.
