Claim: George Zimmerman accidentally shot and killed himself while loading a gun.
Example: [Collected via Facebook, March 2014]
Origins: In March 2014, the Cream Bmp Daily web site published an article positing that George Zimmerman, the man charged (and ultimately acquitted) in the fatal shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin in February 2012, had accidentally shot and killed himself while loading a gun:
"I'm not saying we took our time getting there, but we've shown up faster to black neighborhoods." According to a first responder, they stopped at every light, didn't use a siren and drove behind an elderly woman all before finally arriving on the scene. "If he was a rapper he'd be more famous now that he's dead, but nope! Everybody just glad he's dead."
