Twitterers falsely proclaim that George Zimmerman has been convicted of murder, sentenced to life in prison


Ignoring them would be wise. Zimmerman was indeed charged with second-degree murder, but he has not been convicted. He will not even be going to trial until June 2013.

Earlier this year, Twitter erupted with unfounded rumors of Zimmerman’s conviction and sentencing. Today, those false rumors have returned and are running rampant:

    Whats gonna happen when hes found not guilty? Riots in the streets. Thanks for that hatchet job with the cut n paste 911 call NBC

    It’s funny how they don’t know the difference between charged and convicted. I thought Law and Order franchises had done a better job of teaching Americans how the criminal justice system works.

      It reminds me of people who think that Bill Clinton was being impeached because he had an affair, not because he lied under oath about the affair.

      How ironic is it that this quote, which is most likely fake, is being spread by technology.

    The same people that were cheering when a real murderer OJ Simpson was found “not guilty” of murdering two people. I don’t know if Zimmerman is guilty or not; I’m just pointing these racist nitwits racism.

    This is the problem with social media and our youth. They see a line on Twitter and fact check nothing, ever. If it is in ‘type’ it must be true, right?

  • People Corporation

    LOL – charged and sentenced at the same hearing huh? That only happens when you are the aggressor on the streets, and your victim is armed.

  • Marcy Cook

    Shhhhh let them believe this happened. That way maybe George Zimmerman will actually get a fair trial because the idiots won’t be paying attention.

    may be right.Justice has been served

    i wish george was imprisoned but it hasn’t happened. meanwhile trevor dooley is finally having his day in court. this friday trevor dooley will take the stand. trevor dooley in case we forgot is the black senior citizen who exercised his self defense and SYG against the hooligan known as David james. Even though David James was taller stronger 28 yrs younger musclebound trained killer that threw trevor to the ground, trevor was treated much differently than george, because james was white .what’s interesting is james daughter danielle is testifying for the defense.
