Florida officials: Zimmerman resurfaces to rescue passenger from overturned truck
Officials in Florida say that former neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman briefly came out of hiding last week long enough to rescue the passenger of a vehicle that had overturned.
Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe told ABC News that Zimmerman “pulled an individual from a truck that had rolled over” at the intersection of I-4 and route 417 on July 17. Fox News reported on Monday that it had confirmed the incident with authorities in Sanford.
A report from FloridaToday.com claimed that “Zimmerman helped rescue four people from an overturned” SUV. Local 10 indicated that the vehicle was a blue Ford Explorer with two adults and two children inside.
It was the first public sighting of Zimmerman since he was acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin. The rescue happened less than a mile from where Zimmerman admitted to shooting and killing the 17-year-old boy.

So he was strong enough to be able to pull four people from a flipped vehicle but not strong enough to be able to subdue one teenager?

What color were they? Did he fear for his life? Did he pull out his weapon?

The annoying thing is looking at the conservative fucks on my facebook newsfeed saying "See! We told you so!"
Remember when conservatives used to be smart? Barry Goldwater and Henry Kissinger are a thing of the past.

Honey, they were homophobes, and murderers.

Yes, r12, but they weren't mouth breathers. The only "smart" conservative I can really point to nowadays is Grover Norquist. Sad, really.

The reports say no one in the vehicle was injured or in imminent danger and Zimmerman wasn't the only person there who was trying to help. So it's not like he was doing anything risky or heroic like carrying people out of a burning building or diving into a river to save a drowning person.

George Zimmerman: strong enough to save people from an overturned car, but too weak to fight off a teenager that punched him 4 stalking him

He's got a Munchhausen By Proxy thing about needing to engineer situations in which he's the "hero." "I saved my neighbourhood from the dangerous black kid with the skittles! Those people in the truck would have died without me!"

Ironically, the passengers of the SUV were on their way to a Trayvon Martin memorial rally.

That fat fuck could save a grown person from an overturned truck, but he couldn't defend himself against a lanky teenager? I don't care how many allegedly heroic acts that asshole carries out...he's scum and he'll never change the fact that he's a cold-hearted murderer.

Good thing they weren't black.

What an amazing coincidence, that a major accident that somehow generated no injuries occurred within a few blocks of Zimmerman's house.

Not to mention that the article says he's been in hiding, but yet he just happened to be out at that moment. If you were in hiding, in fear for your life, you would stay that way longer than this.

Did he shoot out the tires before it flipped?
