Bad luck has stuck to Zimmerman’s gun.
We don’t know , how dead Gorge Zimmerman’s heart was when he got a crazy idea to make some profit from his horrible deed and weapon, but all his attempts seem to end in failure.
The first site, where Zimmerman decided to sell the Kel-Tec PF 9-mm he used to kill an unarmed black young man Trayvon Martin, who was considered suspicious for just going out to a local shop for candies and a canned drink, soon removed the weapon from the listing following social outrage.
The second site, UnitedGunGroup.com, saw no harm in putting the bloody gun on the auction.
Todd Underwood, UnitedGunGroup owner, asked The Washington Post, “Why shouldn’t he be selling it?”
“When you look at the facts of the case, he was charged and exonerated by a jury of his peers.”
“This shouldn’t even be a story. A gentleman who did nothing wrong is selling a personal possession of his to the highest bidder.”
There seemed to be some Divine Force that agrees neither with Mr. Underwood, nor with the court, which acquitted Zimmerman of murder and manslaughter charges in a case that ignited national and local level protests.
The gun entered the auction with a minimum starting bid of $5,000 and soon the bidding site went down.
This somehow made the auction site change its mind.
In the evening of the same day United Gun Group Twitted it decision to “terminate” Zimmerman’s auction.
“We stand by the rule of law, and while no laws have been broken, we do not feel like it is in the best interest of our organization to continue to host this sale on our platform,” the official statement said.
“Our mission is to esteem the 2nd amendment …. our association with Mr. Zimmerman does not help us achieve that objective,” the group concluded.
The site was back online equally soon, but regardless their promise to remove the lot, bids continued to show and the price offered by obviously fake bidder accounts reached $59,000,000.
We agree with Morehouse College professor Marc Lamont Hill in comparing the deal to “O.J. Simpson (deciding) to start a line of steak knives”, and we hope that George Zimmerman finds no place for realization of his plan.
We also stand with Trayvon Martin family, which was dignified enough not to comment upon all this dirty stuff.
