Last October, every racist’s favorite hero George Zimmerman retweeted a guy who applauded him for shooting Trayvon Martin, along with a photo of the unarmed boy’s dead body. While Zimmerman continued to gloat about the fact that he murdered Martin after profiling and following him in a gated community, calls to #BanGeorgeZimmerman began to gain some traction.
Unfortunately, that didn’t seem to matter much to the fine people over at Twitter, because not only did they refuse to do anything about the rotund wannabe neighborhood watchman, they didn’t even provide an explanation for their inaction. I thought Twitter had a comprehensive abuse policy.
Finally, there has been a minuscule piece of justice now that Zimmerman went even further to prove that he’s nothing more than a low-life piece of scum. Twitter has suspended Zimmerman’s account due to two extremely abusive tweets aimed at a woman. The tweets were geared toward a white woman who he was allegedly dating….and I say allegedly because it’s hard to believe anyone would find a boastful killer, alleged domestic abuser, and MMA failure attractive.
The two tweets in question featured nude photos of the woman, with one caption that read “She cheated on me with a dirty Muslim.” He then shared her phone number and followed it with a classy “She’ll sleep with anyone.”
The second tweet accused the woman of stealing from him, and included her email address.
While I’m elated that Twitter finally suspended Zimmerman’s account, I wish the action was taken months ago when he decided to brag about killing someone. Zimmerman has been emboldened by the number of times he’s gotten away with criminal behavior, including several instances of domestic violence. When we live in a society that rewards bad behavior, we can’t be surprised when people behave badly.

President Trump was briefed by Bill Barr that abuse of power is an impeachable offense: report
President Donald Trump's legal defense team in the impeachment trial has been repeatedly argued that presidential abuse of power does not count as a "high crime" under the United States constitution.
Legal experts have harshly criticized the argument. And as The New York Times reported Tuesday, one critic is Trump's attorney general.
"In summer 2018, when he was still in private practice, Mr. Barr wrote a confidential memo for the Justice Department and Mr. Trump’s legal team to help the president get out of a problem. The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, was pressuring him to answer questions about whether he had illegally impeded the Russia investigation," the newspaper reported.
Adam Schiff schools Republican senators: We’re making it hard for you to say ‘no’ to transparency
The House knows that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and the Republicans will all vote down the amendments to the rules to have access to all of the information in the impeachment trial. But Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) told them, he has no intention of making it easy on them.
One argument the White House has put forth is that they should abide by the Clinton precedent, which gives members the chance to approve witnesses only after the case is made. Schiff said that the decision was made only after 90,000 pages of documents were released by the White House. If President Donald Trump released 90,000 pages of documents, this argument likely wouldn't be happening. Instead, they've stonewalled at every turn.
