The Persecution of the Zimmerman Family

I find the persecution of the Zimmerman family to be horrific.  George isn’t the only Zimmerman having to hide because of death threats.  In March of 2012, Roseanne Barr tweeted the correct address and phone number of George’s parents, Gladys and Robert Zimmerman.  They immediately started getting death threats and had to leave their home.  The worst part is that they were caring for Gladys’ aging mother, who has Alzheimer’s Disease.  They haven’t been able to live in their house for about a year and a half but have had to continue to pay for the mortgage and taxes while also having to pay for a safe place to hide.  Even after they left, death threats continued to be left on their neighbors answering machines.  One threat specifically said he would slit Gladys’ throat.  Their expenses have been tremendous and they’re rapidly using up their life savings just trying to hide from those who threaten to kill them.  They have a web site that tells their story.  They also have a donation account set up for anyone who might want to help them.

As for George, I don’t know how he will ever be able to get a job to support himself. He is dependent on contributions to pay for him to hide from those who threaten to kill him.
