"If we value the pursuit of knowledge, we must be free to follow wherever that search may lead us. The free mind is not a barking dog, to be tethered on a ten-foot chain."

George Zimmerman Lied To His Father About Following Trayvon Martin

Trayvon Martin
On March 15, 2012, the Orlando Sentinel reported that Robert Zimmerman, the father of George Zimmerman,  who now stands accused of the murder of 17 year old Trayvon Martin,  hand delivered a letter to the Sentinel in an understandable effort to help his son.  Mr. Zimmerman's letter reads in pertinent part: "At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin."

Obviously, Mr. Zimmerman is simply repeating what his son George Zimmerman told him about the circumstances of his shooting and killing an unarmed teenager.

George Zimmerman must have forgot when he lied to his father that he had already admitted to the police dispatcher before he confronted, shot and killed Trayvon that he was, in fact, following the teenager.

Dispatcher:  Are you following him?

Zimmerman: Yeah.

Dispatcher:  Ok. We don't need you to do that.

It must be terribly hard to wake up and realize your son has been lying to you about the circumstances of his killing an unarmed teenager, but nowhere near as hard and heartbreaking to wake up everyday to the devastating reality that your teenage son has been murdered.
