George Zimmerman Painting Sells For $100,099

Todd-Spence by Todd-Spence on Jan. 02, 2014

Actually, it was $100,099.99.  I guess the buyer was too cheap to round up the dollar.

 

 

On the painting's Ebay post, Zimmerman wrote: “First hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman. Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :-) I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman.”  For a painting that's supposed to reflect all of that, it sure doesn't look like a whole lot.  It does look pretty blue though.

 

 

Zimmerman also stated in the post that he would hand-deliver the painting to the winning bidder anywhere in the US.  Oh goodie, who wouldn't want that visit!  The winning bidder out of the 96 (96 people wanted this thing??) has not yet been revealed.  Good Lord, paintings by Van Gogh and Picasso sell for less than $100,000.  But then again there is a market for paintings by normal people turned infamous via an incredibly tragic circumstance.  I'm really putting that lightly.  For instance, John Wayne Gacy's paintings were sold as charity to the families of Gacy's crimes.

 

 

Nightmare Wallpaper.

Not to mention the thousands of dollars people are willing to pay for an original signed Charles Manson sketch, which Manson does not see a dime of since he belongs in a maximum security prison.

 

 

It's like a magic eye for crazy people.

I suppose the buyers see these pieces as an investment, hoping their value will increase over time.  I also imagine that these rich folks have the Elite Hunting tattoo as seen in the Hostel movies because that's just one bizarre hobby to have.

I saw this on Ebay. The comments are disturbing. What I noticed was many bids were withdrawn, leaving me to wonder if he did the bidding himself.

This doesn't mean he should have lost his life....look at Zimmerman he has had a record before this and even after....so I don't feel sorry for....he was a thug in his own right!!

Bet his mug shot sells for less, pathetic loser. He's innocent so says the jury, he's guilty period for shooting an un-armed "person", regardless the situation a grown man versus a un-armed punk, no more to say, Zimmerman is a coward for that. Not guilty in Florida is Zimmerman and Kaisy Anthony - Florida's legacy of loser laws.

Anyone else still wondering why people are screaming racism still, especially against the white community, when looking at this photo, its more obvious than ever how Hispanic he is?
And how many white people got killed out of retaliation?
what's next, white people getting blamed for being racist during Asian and black conflicts?
there's a lot of Asian and Indian convenience store clerks that have been robbed by African Americans  (and whites and others, that aren't relevant, just to be fair), should we go ahead and take the wrap if any of those clerks fights back during a robbery in the future. So if all of you racist black people could please redirect your hate towards the right group, that would be great!

LOL, Jeez Mattel, what have you done to Uno?

well, i would. I'm a military police officer. i will always put myself out there. Going off of eyewitness accounts and his story, he was doing his patrol and called in suspicious activity (Trayvon on THC) in a gated housing area. He confronted the teen (as would I) when Trayvon jumped him. If your life is threatened you have every right to use the appropriate force. If you were a 100lb girl being jumped by a 200lb guy, you have every right to shoot him in self defense. In the case of Zimmerman and Martin, he was jumped, he was getting the shit beat out of him, he shot in defense. If your life is in danger, you have every right to use the appropriate force to defend yourself. I always keep my EDC knife on myself if I am not going to have a concealed firearm, if I was jumped and someone was beating the shit out of me and I got my head slammed into the ground (as apparent in the photos) I would use what I needed to. At the same time, I am not just going to flash my knife/gun at everyone who wants to get into a yelling match. Recent example, the "knockout game". Some guy was outside when a kid ran up and sucker punched him in the side of the head, the guy pulled his firearm and shot the kid twice for "assault" Not saying Zimmerman is some hero or a good guy, I'm just going off the evidence presented and the reason why the outcome is what it is. End result is someone was unnecessarily killed and someone was declared innocent.

he is very famous now. thanks to a media that had him guilty before the trial started. turns out ol treyvon was a thug after all. with fame comes intrigue. people want to know more about him. and obviously support him

regardless if he was a thug, drug dealer, etc, he was shot because a man who thought he was "big" chased him, picked a fight, lost, then shot him because he lost. thats what it boils down to. not the character, but the action. you sir are saying, its ok to shoot someone who was kicking your ass because they're "drug dealers" based on "text messages". he was told not to approach him, he was told to stay in the house. he called the cops, and thats that. the cops will deal with this drug dealer. not a dude with an ego taking upon himself to "deal" with this dude, getting his ass KICKED and getting mad about it, then claiming self defense. he was warned. you gonna call the cops upon seeing a person who looks like their about to rob someone, then take it upon yourself to approach them drew? hmm? i bet you would cause you're a big guy who dont take shit from anyone but once your ego is bruised what do you do? oh right, shoot someone. shut up. we all know neither of them were innocent. this shit happens to all races all the time. this one was just publicized. ENOUGH

If it was my kid that was killed, I would ask myself where I failed as a parent that my child was proven to be a drug using reprobate that attempted to commit manslaughter.

Way to completely and totally disregard any facts of the case and just make up your own.  GZ didn't "pick a fight", he was concerned with someone he didn't recognize in an area that had been beset with a string of recent break-ins.  The person that actually started the fight was Trayvon.  George was not told ANYTHING.  The dispatcher (NOT police officer) said, and I quote directly "We don't need you to do that".  At no time was 'stay in the house' even inferred.  Trayvon wasn't shot because he beat someone's ass, he was shot because he was slamming a person's head into a concrete walkway and allegedly told George "You're gonna die tonight".


Try pulling your head out of your ass and actually read a fact once in a while instead of talking to other low information fools that make this crap up as they go.
