OK - some topics defy categorization. I submit, this is one of those instances.
 
 George Zimmerman Emerged From Hiding for Truck Crash Rescue  (http://abcnews.go.com/US/george-zimmerman-emerged-hiding-truck-crash-rescue/story?id=19735432)

Quote
George Zimmerman, who has been in hiding since he was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, emerged to help rescue someone who was trapped in an overturned truck, police said today.

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 a Florida highway last week. Florida Highway Patrol is now handling the case, McAuliffe said.

The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route 417, police said.

It's the first known sighting of Zimmerman since he left the courtroom following his acquittal last week on murder charges for the death of Martin. Zimmerman, 29, shot and killed Martin, 17, in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, 2012. The jury determined that Zimmerman shot Martin in self-defense.

Why didn't they report this last week when it happened and how did Gutman get the exclusive?

If the driver was Sharpton I am withdrawing my support of GZ    OK Honestly I hope the police withhold the race of the victim just to drive the Zimmerman haters nuts

Gutman only had snippets of a very pooly-recorded and largely unintelligible telephone interview about the incident.

Wouldn't it be ironic if Crump and Parks handled any lawsuits the accident victim pursued?

With no malice in his heart and with no regard for his own safety,
Zimmie uses the strength he obtained during his extensive MMA training
to rip open the doors of the crumpled vehichle like a flesh and blood jaws of life.
He did this even though he risked arrest for the crime of leaving his own car.

Vandalism, burglary or an occupied dwelling, pedestrian on a designated interstate highway...

These are serious charges.

Wannabe first responder.

Which news outlet will be the first to play the 911 call?  I bet he has some harsh words on there that can be spun as demonstrating a depraved heart.

He didn't need to but he has a "Little Hero Complex" which must be fed.

Does he think he is the DOJ?

"This is just another example of who he truly is," O'Mara told WFTV-Channel 9's Kathi Belich. "There aren't any cameras around. This wasn't a publicity campaign. It was somebody who was in need on the side of the road, and he did what George does, which is help out."

O'Mara's comments brought a tear to my eye. Thank G-d for the Constitution, O'Mara, West and the American Justice system.

Jeff Weiner (Orlando Sentinel) tweeted 'The report indicates the driver and passenger [sic] of the SUV are white.'

Looks like everybody got excited for nothing.

It just means the NBPP didn't need to hold fire to reduce collateral damage.
