    George Zimmerman’s heroic car crash rescue appears to be a fraud – Updated

    Quote, "George Zimmerman’s heroic car crash rescue appears to be a fraud – Updated
    By Dog Gone on 07/25/2013

    What did occur was that an accident occurred where a car slid on it’s side into a median. People at the scene called 911, which went to the Sanford office of the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. BEFORE responding to the 911 call, News Ball.com reports that Seminole Sheriff’s Dept. Officer Patrick Rehder, a self-styled friend and supporter of Zimmerman, contacted Zimmerman by cell phone directing him to go to the accident so as to appear to be a hero. News Ball.com also provides a social media screen capture of a curious statement about Rehder taking pleasure when someone gets credit for something they did not do.

    Rehder’s name appears on the accident report as the responding officer; social media shows his connection to Zimmerman.

    You will also notice if you google "Zimmerman car crash fraud" you will get nothing but results from left wing websites.

    Not one credible news agency (and I use that term loosely) such as MSNBC, FOX, ABC, CBS, Good Morning America, etc. has reported on this. So until more than 3 of those listed above report on this, it doesn't mean jack sh**. Except of course conspiracy theory crap.

    Yep. That's why I haven't paid any attention to this, beyond noting that there are no citable facts or credible evidence, merely partisan glee.

    I ignore conspiracy whackos whether they're moonbats, or wingnuts.

    While many claim to support the right to keep and bear arms, precious few support the practice.

    ^^This.

    And to reinforce the comment -- does ANYone actually believe that if there was ANY substance to this outrageous "report" that the mainstream media, Sharpton and Jackson wouldn't be all over it?

    The OP is a troll. He never posts on the topic of OC and gives no indication that he even owns a gun, let alone supports the RKBA or Liberty in general. He comes here every few weeks and unloads conspiracy theory crap that he gets elsewhere. It's like we are on his assigned "route."

    It would be different if he stuck around and discussed his stuff or occasionally discussed OC, but he doesn't. He just drops a pantload and leaves.

    The really disappointing thing about it is that I was led to believe that the staff was going to dispatch him, but they did not.

    I'm with the majority here. It doesn't even make sense. The meager benefits, if any, of faking the rescue are clearly outweighed by the potential consequences of any such fake being discovered. It's not like anyone is going to change their mind about Trayvon Martin because of it.

    Did everybody read the last sentence in the OP's link?

    "It is also part of why there is opposition to the SYG laws that make it easier for someone to get away with homicide."

    There is so much distortion there via the chosen verbiage. First and foremost SYG had nothing to do with the Zimmerman case - classic red herring.

    Further the question isn't did someone "get away with homicide" but whether the act was justifiable or excusable = legal.
    If you followed the link to the second article, then you saw the many misstatements, distortions and untruths contained therein.

    Recognize the history of the OP as well - should you find posts/threads that are particularly egregious before I do, please PM me your concerns.

    Yea, when I first saw the thread I thought it would be interesting. Then after the page loaded I saw the poster, went "oh, him" and moved on.

    Umm...all of this threads. He is a spamming troll. He never participates in discussions. What he does is every bit as wrong as a guy who stops by, drops off his advertisements, and leaves. This guy stops by, drops off his pantload of conspiracies that are his wares that he is selling, and leaves. Why he has not yet been banned is beyond me.

    However, the last two times I said those precise bolded words, the poster disappeared shortly thereafter. I can only hope the streak continues.

    I have to agree, not to mention he wastes the bandwidth of the servers for BS.

    Not to mention storage. He usually uploads those ridiculous pics to go along with his Ex-Lax induced posts.

    Good points. If I were the admins, not only would I ban him, but I'd go through and delete all of his threads and posts, and just watch the bandwidth use go down and the server space go up.

    Personally, though. I think this troll is part of a conspiracy launched by the NSA to destroy a valuable resource for RKBA advocacy! Let me post a couple of hundred pictures and videos to support this wild contention.

    Zimmerman needs to stop doing things that puts his name back in the media. The man while innocent is not very bright.

    Last time I checked it is very easy not to get stopped for speeding. While many people do it, they are not in the position that GZ is. It was stupid of him to speed. I have not been stopped for speeding in over 30 years, in fact the only time I have been stopped has been for routine DOT roadside inspections. I drive the speed limit, it is not a hard thing to do.
