Last week we told you about George Zimmerman’s website dedicated to raising funds for his legal and living expenses and yesterday the site went live.

On the site, Zimmerman briefly discusses the events of that fateful night which left 17-year-old Trayvon Martin dead.

He writes:

On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website’s sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries.

What I found interesting is that in his posting Zimmerman never apologized to the Martin family for taking Trayvon’s life (a fact that isn’t disputed), but rather focused on the hardship this “life altering event” has caused him.

When I first saw this site, I thought it was a fake. It looks incredibly cheap, unfinished, and like a throwback to the Geocities era of the late ’90s. Moreover, I felt that it was a bad move to have Zimmerman speaking–in any capacity–before special prosecutor Angela Corey decides whether or not to bring charges against him. But apparently, it’s not a hoax. Zimmerman’s lawyer confirmed the site was indeed his client’s work.

Although Zimmerman doesn’t delve into the facts of the case, he uses the quote, “People have a right to their own opinions, but not to their own facts. Evidence must be located, not created, and opinions not backed by evidence cannot be given much weight,” to make his case. Zimmerman also goes on to thank encouragers and solicit donations from those who want to support his cause.

What do you think of Zimmerman’s website? Is it a good idea?

    Really dude you lost YOUR life. 17 years of Trayvon Martin’s life bled out on the cold ground within yards of his father’s home because you didn’t value life. This child’s last image of his young world was of you standing over him watching him gasp for his last breath. His is eternally young because you George Zimmerman with the body of a man and the mind of a child a just a scared person with a gun…nothing worse. If you were smart enough to let a real police officer do his job….this young boy might be alive today. So if there was an ounce of malice when firing your gun….for every year you are allowed to grow old…..you should pay for the lies you’ve told to cover your tracks. God have mercy on you, you may only get prison time for your mistake, this boy paid for your mistake with his life.

    If people are so upset about this case, they should push to change the law that protects him instead of trying to convict him in court-which will never happen. I don’t like what happened, but the law will protect him and he will be set free. If Zimmerman’s story is true about Martin attacking him, I don’t blame him for being scared. Unfortunately, the law there states that he could shoot if he felt his life was in danger.

    The fact of the matter is that (assuming that Martin attacked Zimmerman) Trayvon did not have the right to put his hands on anyone. Even if he was harassed, it doesn’t make it OK for him to physically go after Zimmerman.

    I wasn’t there and don’t know for sure what went down, but hopefully the facts will come out in court. I just wish people would stop making this a black/white issue, because it’s not.
