A Wise Choice?: The family saved by Zimmerman refuse to be publicly associated with him

share on:

George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin’s killer saved a family from an overturned car sometime this week. While press and police urged them to talk about the incident, and how Zimmerman had saved them, the family declined.

Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara confirmed that the family canceled a planned news conference on Tuesday saying “They don’t want to be associated with George.”

Mediaite.com reports;

“Mark and Dana Michelle Gerstle told friends and neighbors that though they’re thankful Mr. Zimmerman helped them, they do not want to talk publicly about him for fear they will be accused of portraying him as a hero,” reads a Tuesday report in The Daily Mail.

“They are very grateful to Zimmerman for what he did, but they do not want to get involved,” an anonymous friend of that family told the Mail. “There is so much hatred directed towards him they have got to think about their own family. There are a lot of crazies out there. If they say anything in support of him it could backfire.”

On Wednesday, WESH-TV Florida reporter Bob Kealing confirmed that the family will not appear in public to discuss the event, in spite of police and press requests that the family explain what happened when Zimmerman allegedly saved them from a car wreck.
