George Zimmerman who shot and killed unarmed teen Trayvon Martin has filed suit against NBCUniversal Media claiming he was defamed.
Zimmerman claims NBC altered the 911 call to make it seem as if he was a racist.
The suit, filed in Seminole County by attorneys Mark O’Mara of Orlando and James Beasley of Philadelphia, accuses NBC of igniting “media arson” in March when it spliced a portion of the call between Zimmerman and a dispatcher “to juxtapose unrelated content to make it appear that Zimmerman was a racist and that he was racially profiling Trayvon Martin.”
In the edited audio, Zimmerman tells a dispatcher that Trayvon, who was visiting family in Zimmerman’s neighborhood, “looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.” In fact, the dispatcher asked whether Trayvon was “white, black or Hispanic” and Zimmerman replied, “He looks black.”
The suit contends that NBCUniversal failed to report Zimmerman’s Hispanic heritage while emphasizing Trayvon’s race. Reports also used misleading photos of both, the complaint alleges. Source
I have no words today for this killer.
