TAAFFE is George Zimmermans best supporter because... [View all]

Birds of a feather...

Frank Taaffe is a damn thief, was he doing the robberies in the neighborhood and then blaming it on black males?..... He was charged with Trespass and Theft in 2000 and was sentenced to 9 months..his house is currently in foreclosure, is he trying to make some quick bucks?


What I find interesting about Zimmerman and Taaffe:

The undated mugshot below is for one Frank Taaffe of Florida, arrested for violating an order of protection against domestic violence. Zimmerman has a similar record from 2005.

Taaffe seems to have a problem with minorities, as well. He is quoted as saying that the problems in the community started "when foreclosures forced owners to rent out to low-lifes and gangsters.”

“Just two weeks before this shooting," continues Taaffe, "George called me at my girlfriend’s house to say he saw some black guy doing surveillance at my house, because I had a left a window open. He thwarted a potential burglary of my house.”

The latest Census Bureau figures for the Twin Lakes community is 49 percent white, non-Hispanic, 23 percent Hispanic, 20 percent African-American and 5 percent Asian. Taaffe was noted as sounding chagrined when he said that the complex is now majority-minority.

It appears the "neighborhood watch captains", both past and present, just couldn't see a black male on the street without immediately thinking "looks like he’s up to no good". I'm sure his testimony as to Zimmerman's 'community standing' is sure to be quite a treat for the Grand Jury in April.
