Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing the matter with this, except that it ain't so ~ Mark Twain (11/30/1835 to 4/21/1910) born Samuel Langhorne Clemens, Twain was an American author and humorist. He is most noted for his novels, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876), and its sequel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885). A quote from Mark Twain's Notebook (1935).
Note: This commentary is the second in a two part series chronicling the exploits of the killer George Zimmerman (read the first entry here). The narrative that follows consists of what I have decided to call "truthy drama". The story below is a blend of fact and fiction. The central fact here being that George Zimmerman's heroic car crash rescue appears to be a fraud.
Officer Pat Reh steered his police cruiser north up the 400 Florida State road, alert for speeders, accidents, or anything out of the ordinary. It was approximately 10 past 5 in the afternoon. "I'm not far from Sanford, the municipality where my pal George Zim killed that Black thug" the officer thought as he continued on at a moderate speed only slightly exceeding the legal limit. Policeman Reh, a friend and supporter of George Zim, was among those within the force who thought George should have been invited to join their ranks. In his mind his pal's gunning down of the drugged up street punk was proof that George was the exact sort of fellow they needed to help bust heads and keep the streets safe for the Conservative residents of the Seminole County area.
That the Liberal media and the Obama administration had attempted to railroad his friend with false charges of murder made the LEO's stomach churn. Fortunately the five Whites on the jury saw the truth and didn't buy the narrative put forward by the prosecution. This was a textbook case of self-defense. That the one ni**er on the jury felt otherwise was evidence to him that the Black community was the true source of racism in this country. But the law was upheld and a good man was set free, despite the efforts of the race hustlers and race pimps, and despite the outcry from the entitlement-dependent Blacks who use race as an excuse to bitch and moan about being kept down by the man when their problems are entirely self-caused.
Hopefully this incident would serve as a wake up call for their community. Law-breaking and drug-using thugs who attack those who only seek to prevent their law-breaking could be blown away and their killings ruled justified henceforth. George's acquittal put them all on notice. The only downside was that his unfortunate buddy was now in fear of his life from the type of Liberal scum that seeks to keep Blacks down, dependent and on the dole for their own political benefit.
Just then a call came in over the cruiser's communication system. "An SUV has slipped off the road and overturned several miles ahead of you" the dispatcher informed him. "Emergency vehicles have been notified, but you will arrive on the scene first". LEO Reh flipped on his siren and increased his speed, passing a vehicle ahead of him. "I'm on my way post haste" Reh informed the dispatcher.
"If a vehicle is overturned there may be a need for a hero to pull victims from the wreckage" PO Reh postulated. Taking out his cell phone Reh pressed the speed dial button for his buddy Zim. "George, get your butt to the offramp at SR 417 and SR 400, there's been an accident". "What the fu*ck do I care? I'm not a cop nor will I ever be" an annoyed sounding Zim replied. "This is your opportunity to rehabilitate your public image by playing the hero. I'll secure the scene and you can assist anyone who may need assisting".
"Great idea!" Zim agreed, suddenly feeling much better. A conservative group in Ohio had already raised 12k for him to buy guns and/or a security system. Who knows how much more he might be able to rake in if he got more of the country on his side. Nothing from the Blacks of course, but Conservative Whites were with him strongly. Certainly the "donations" would take off in response to him being labeled a hero. "Please send the GPS coordinates to my phone" Zim informed his cop friend. "I'm on my way".
Soon George was behind the wheel and speeding toward the scene of the accident, heading west from his home in Sanford to the intersection of the 417 and 400 Florida State roads. Arriving a short while later George easily spotted the overturned SUV. A fire had already erupted and the vehicle was ablaze. Jumping from his truck Zim grabbed a fire extinguisher. Running toward the vehicle George passed a number of frightened onlookers. "Look, it's the vindicated George Zim" one White woman whispered to her Republican husband. Quickly Zim approached the burning wreck and crouched down next to the driver's side window.
"Help me!" cried the driver. Then he recognized George and suddenly felt assured that the persecuted hero would save his family. "Thank the Lord" the man sighed. In no time George had pulled the man and his family from the inferno that otherwise would have consumed them. The driver's young daughter hugged Zim tight. "God bless you" the little girl said with tears in her eyes. Zim's cop friend approached. "Everyone has seen what you did" the cop said, smiling. "Soon the world will know that George Zim is, in reality, a hero". Then the truck violently exploded, but everyone was a safe distance away.
The onlookers (all who had been to afraid to act) cheered, clapped and hooted as Zim and the family he had just saved ducked under the police tape his friend had put up to keep back the crowd. An ambulance arrived and the husband, wife and children departed, but not before the misses gave Zim a big kiss on the cheek. "I owe you my life" the woman said, thanking him. A beautiful blonde who was standing among the onlookers caught Zim's eye, due to her big bazooms. Zim took a victory lap, high-fiving the still cheering crowd behind the police tape. Then he signed several autographs.
The blonde babe with the large rack motioned for Zim to come over to her. "I knew you were a hero" she whispered in his ear as she gave Zim's package a friendly tug. "Do you think your wife is into three ways?". "No, no" that part is definitely not believable" Officer Reh cautioned his friend. "We'll keep your concocted story up to the departure of the ambulance, and leave off everything else, including the part with the blonde and her big bazooms. So you got here only in time to pretend to help? Don't worry about it. I'll support your version of events... minus that last bit".
"Of course" George agreed. "I simply got carried away". In reality George had arrived in time only to assist several others as the family was pulled from the SUV (which only caught fire later). After the driver was helped from the vehicle by another man George assisted him in walking away from the scene. The man was a little woozy and George steadied him by placing an arm around his waist.
"Thanks" the man said, relieved to see that others had gotten his family members out of the overturned SUV. That was when Zim's cop friend approached. "Amazing that you got here ahead of me, given that I was already on route when I called you" the LEO remarked. "No, I just happened to be driving by when I spotted the accident", George corrected officer Pat. "Yes, that is a much better lie" Pat agreed. "You're quite good at fabricating believable narratives that fit the events".
George was unsure what his friend was talking about. "I'm implying nothing" Pat remarked, noting the accusing look on George's face. "Whatever happened that night I know you did the right thing; as do many others. We are with you George. You only have to worry about the MSM and the Liberal dirtbags". "And the Black community" George added. "Yes" Pat agreed, "they love to play the victim and blame Whitey for all their problems".
"Now I'll file my report and note that you took the lead in rescuing these unfortunate victims. You should contact your lawyer and set up a press conference. That could go a long way toward rehabilitating your image". "Will do" Zim agreed, thankful that his buddy had the foresight to call him and allow him to pretend to be a hero. "Take this card, it has all the info regarding the family you saved (wink, wink) on it" Pat said, handing the aforementioned card to George.
Turns out his lawyer loved the idea. "That's just what he does, so the idea that he would stop and offer aid to somebody in need in a car just makes sense" Zim's attorney Mark Mara gushed to a local CBS News affiliate. Mara contacted the family Zim had "saved" and attempted to convince them to attend a press conference in order to praise his client. "I'm uncomfortable with that" the man who had slipped off the road and flipped his SUV responded. "There is a lot of negative publicity involving Mr. Zim and I'm not sure I want to get caught up in all that".
"But my client saved the lives of you and your family, it is the least you could do" Mara said, pressuring the man to participate in the media event. "OK" the man said reluctantly. "I'll be there". But after thinking it over the man wasn't so sure that Zim had been the one to pull him from the SUV, so he called back and cancelled. "I'm sorry George", a saddened Attorney Mara said to Zim over the phone, "the a-hole you rescued chickened out". "God d*mn f*cker!" George screamed after the call was disconnected. "Just when I thought I was going to get some positive media attention, this jackass refuses to play along".
"At least the White Conservative community is still with you. And they are out there plugging your heroics on the internet with great enthusiasm" Zim's wife Shellie said, attempting to sooth her enraged husband. Yes, there was that. This could still work to his advantage, provided no one got wise to the fact that the entire rescue was a fraud. Officer Reh assured Zim that nobody recorded the incident on their cell phones. "I walked the crowd and told them I could connect anyone with footage to a reporter that would pay handsomely, but there were no takers" Pat said to George at the time. "Don't worry, without any video footage nobody can dispute your version of events".
Zim hoped his LEO buddy was right, because if it ever got out that things didn't happen as per his fabricated narrative... well, he didn't want to think about that. His most fervent supports would never abandon him of course, as they would simply ignore any evidence that suggested his heroics were staged. But his chance to win others over would surely be blown. "Oh well" Zim decided. At least he was a free man. For a time it looked like his bogus story about him shooting that Martin kid in self-defense wouldn't be bought by the jury. Not long, but for a short while. They asked a question about manslaughter and Zim's heart sank. Could he be convicted of the lesser charge? No, it turns out his momentary doubt was competently unnecessary. His lie-filled version of events was accepted and Zim was set free.
But how much fame (and the money that comes with it) would his notoriety bring him? That was still up in the air. Maybe another Conservative group would step forward and offer to pay to send him back to college so he could study to become a lawyer? He had to keep a positive attitude. He was, after all, a man who had literally gotten away with murder.
