Elderly couple forced out of home after tweet claims killer of Trayvon Martin lives there.

SANFORD, Fla An elderly Florida couple have been forced to move into a hotel after their home address was wrongly tweeted as belonging to the man who shot teen Trayvon Martin.

The tweets were traced back to a man in California and the address was also reportedly retweeted by director Spike Lee to his almost 250,000 followers.

The couple, aged 70 and 72, have been harassed with hate mail, been hassled by media and had scared neighbors questioning them since the tweet, their son Chip Humble told the Orlando Sentinel.

Fearful for their safety, and hoping to escape the spotlight, the couple have temporarily moved to a hotel.

The confusion seems to stem from the fact the woman's son is named William George Zimmerman and he lived briefly at the address in 1995.

When William Zimmerman pleaded with the man who tweeted the address, the man responded, "Black power all day. No justice, no peace" along with an obscenity.

Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman shot and killed Martin in a Sanford gated community on Feb. 26, with emotions and anger running at fever pitch while he remains free.

William Zimmerman said he used his mother and stepfather's address to register a car, get a drivers license and vote when he lived there after college.

"This is really scary, and I'm concerned for my family," William Zimmerman said. "It's scary because there are people who aren't mentally right and will take this information and run with it.

"To endanger people who are innocent because people are angry is not the answer. That's not how we're going to heal. It's not [going] to help the Martin family for someone else to be hurt."

I actually wrote to Spike Lee and read the riot act regarding how foul, stupid, and immature it was to do what he did. No one should stoop to the level of creating a lynch mob to exact justice. No excuse for such behavior.

I wonder how many of you in this thread admonished those who sent out addresses and other identifying information of abortion providers that actually ended up in their being targeted and killed? Or the lawmaker who had his gas line cut...at his brother's house cause some rightwing wack sent out the wrong info? Or any of the MANY instances on the right where someone sent out someone's info with the purpose of them being targeted by someone willing to go that extra mile?

Just curious.

Spike is dead wrong for this and should pay this couple a nice settlement.


Now, to you repukes. Is your issue that he tweeted the wrong address or that he tweeted an address at all? Im not quite sure where you guys stand on this.

That he did it at all. Let's do the same back at him. He always was a gutless fuck.

Libs, all celebs get way more credibility than they deserve. It's nauseating but it's reality. Have you seen the Tom Hanks / Jimmy Stewart comparison that's going around. Ironically, I got it from a celebrity who is politically conservative. It pretty much nails it. If you haven't seen it, I'll end it to you.

Just did. Bear in mind, I'm no Sarah Palin fan (except I'd like to bone her) but the thoughts comparing Tom Hanks to say (war hero) Jimmy Stewart are very well eluciated.

Now the funny thing is, that this was sent to me by both husband and wife Hollywood people. Some here call all Hollywood people 'libruhls' but these two are part of the Hollywood conservatives that never really get heard.

So, how do you feel about Michelle Malking posting on her blog the address and other contact info of anti-war student advocates who went on to receive death threats?

Not only was she asked to remove it, but continued to post them several more times?


In April 2006, Students Against War (SAW), a campus group at University of California, Santa Cruz, staged a protest against the presence of military recruiters on campus, and sent out a press release containing contact details (names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses) of three student leaders for use by reporters. Malkin included these contact details in a blog column entitled "Seditious Santa Cruz vs. America".[49] Malkin claimed the contact information was originally taken from SAW's own website, but that later SAW had removed it and had "wiped" the "cached version".[50] The students asked Malkin to remove the contact details from her blog, but Malkin reposted them several times[51] writing in her blog: "I am leaving it up. If you are contacting them, I do not condone death threats or foul language. As for SAW, my message is this: You are responsible for your individual actions. Other individuals are responsible for theirs. Grow up and take responsibility."[49]
SAW remarked: "Due to the continued irresponsible actions of some bloggers, members of the group have received numerous death threats and anti-Semitic comments through phone calls and emails."[52] A blog war ensued. Malkin claimed that she received hostile e-mails[53] then her private home address, phone number, photos of her neighborhood and maps to her house were published on several websites. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reported receiving an email from Malkin saying that this forced her to remove one of her children from school and move her family.[54]

I would say, prove the death threats. Did they provide proof? Probably not. We have the Panthers on record, offering a bounty. A fucking bounty? Really? And the Community Organizer in Chief, and his tool of an Attorney General, are deaf-mutes on the threats. The Alinsky in them is smiling I'm sure. Barry is nervous and ready to unleash his Brownshirts. This must be what he meant by a Civillian Police Force, with powers equal to that of the Military.

Bottom line, you have nothing.

That he did it at all. Let's do the same back at him. He always was a gutless fuck.

It was classic when, back in the day, Reggie Miller would get in his face after taking the Knicks to the house.

Reggie Miller good player and one of the few guys, along with Michael Jackson, who looked more like his sister than his sister did!:D
