I know the area quite well and at 5:45PM, trafic is highly congested. Amazing that the ONLY bystander who was there to offer assistance was Zimmerman.
Besides, I thought he was in fear for his life? And with no injuries reported to any of the 4 occupants, plus all of the above, this story doesn't pass the smell test.

I don't know the guy, but it seems he does his best to do the right thing. I KNOW he did the right thing when he defended his life against a violent attacker. The jury knew it too, thank goodness.
Well, put Jezebel.

It's ignorant people like you that don't think they have any Black in their blood that are the worst kind of racist's.

You have some ancestral jigaboo blood and you put down your own kind.

Just because your skin is white doesn't mean you have no Black in you.

99% of whiteys do.

Read the orlandosentinel.com story. George came upon the scene AFTER the accident, so no, he did not follow them, lol. Others had also dialed 911. George was NOT a bystanders.

You're pretty uninformed about the events that took place.

Why would George be in fear for his life anymore? Everyone who wants to harm him is out protesting, lol!

Did the local gun broker give George a new gun? Maybe some ammo to go along with his new gun?

I went back to find the article about the fire and couldn't find it. Really strange. I then Googled car crash and fire and I got this although this was not the article I read. "Zimmerman Saves Family of Four in Florida Car Crash, Extinguishes Car Fire

*Updated
On Wednesday, July 17 at about 5:45 PM Sanford Police responded to a single car accident in the area of I- 4 and State Road 46 in Sanford. A blue Ford Explorer SUV traveled off the road and rolled over. There were four occupants inside the vehicle, two parents and two children. An eyewitness to the accident told Breitbart News the SUV lost control in front of the witness's car. The SUV later caught fire.
The deputy reported, when he arrived on the scene that one of the two men helping the family was George Zimmerman. According to Sanford Police Zimmerman had a fire extinguisher with him. The eyewitness told Breitbart News he helped assist the family out of the vehicle and put out the fire with the extinguisher.
"Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash, which was why he was not referenced in the police report," a Sanford Police spokeswoman told Breitbart News. "He left after making contact with the deputy. There were no reports of injuries of any of the vehicle's occupants," she said.
An eyewitness to the accident told Breitbart News that people on the scene recognized Zimmerman and thanked him for his help before he left.
Zimmerman's location has been unknown since he was found "not guilty" of second degree murder and manslaughter of Trayvon Martin recently."

Proving what???? You think that because the people who called were focusing on the accident and not the people around it proves that Zimmerman wasn't there????
I said the story doesn't pass the smell test and I stand by that statement.

You don't find it just a little tiny bit odd that the vehicle's occupants are not identified? So just exactly "who" planted this story in today's news?

http://www.seminolesheriff.org/external/InfoS...

> Per Florida Statute Section 316.066, effective June 5, 2001, accident reports are no longer a public record under the provisions of Florida Statute Section 119.07 for a period of 60 days after the date the report is filed. However, they can be made available immediately to:

•Persons under contract with such insurer to provide claims or underwriting information;
•Prosecutorial authorities;
•Radio and television stations licensed by the FCC;
•Qualifying newspapers;
•State and Federal Agencies authorized to have access to such reports by any provision of the law

When making a request for an accident report which falls within the 60 days time period, one of the following types of credentials and/or identification must be provided in support of any claim for access to be the requested report:

•Drivers license or other governmental issued picture ID, identifying the requester as a party involved in the accident;
•Signed and notarized letter from an involved party authorizing the pickup of the report on their behalf;
•Letter from an attorney stating they represent a party involved;
•Formal written request from an insurance company on company letterhead or otherwise clearly identifiable request form for each report identifying the parties they insure;

http://www.tmz.com/2013/07/22/george-zimmerma...
The first 911 caller says she saw the vehicle flip, she is still driving and "other people have stopped".

The second caller said she was still driving and when asked if people had gotten out of the vehicle, she said no but "other people has started to rush toward the vehicle".

That's as far as I listened as it's obvious you have major comprehension issues. How on earth would you expect witnesses driving past the scene of an accident to recognize it was George Zimmerman assisting with their rescue?

Huge conspiracy that sure is!

Uhm, duh, maybe to give the story some credibility?

It was all over the Internet that Zimmerman won the Florida Lottery, too......just because someone writes a story that doesn't mean it's true.

I question stories from "police sources speaking unofficially" or "unnamed sources close to the investigation" or "undisclosed friends" but in this report it names the sheriff's spokeswoman.

"Zimmerman, 29, helped get them out of the overturned sport utility vehicle last Wednesday, barely four days after the not-guilty verdict, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office in central Florida said.

"He did not witness the crash. He rolled up on it after the fact and assisted in getting the family out of the vehicle," sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said."

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/22/us-...

Kim Cannaday is also listed as the Public Affairs Officer on the Seminole Sheriff's site, including her email address.
http://www.seminolesheriff.org/external/InfoS...

It she wasn't responsible for it's release, she could certainly retract it. Why don't you email her and clear up your doubt, if it irradiates you so much.

The February 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martion might never have happened if school officials in Miami-Dade County had not instituted an unofficial policy of treating crimes as school disciplinary infractions.
They weren't crimes.

A simpler explanation would be: the shooting death of 17 year old Martin would never have happened if the fat pedophile cop wannabe had stayed and waiting for the real cops to show up.

Like he was told.

It was reported there were two men, GZ was not alone, and it's highly doubtful either of the 2 adults in the SUV were resisting their rescue efforts.

No way could the Pillsbury Dough boy be of much help in the rescue. Yet he will be glad to take all the credit for it. Maybe next week he will save a cop.
