Florida Couple Victimized By Spike Lee Hires Law Firm
MSNBC Deliberately Clips Zimmerman's Statements To Suggest He's Racist

I just hired a law firm for my own victimization by Spike Lee. My victimization was the film Bamboozled.

I have scars in my eyeballs.

"At this point, they have retained us to protect their interests" and their safety, attorney Matt Morgan said of Elaine and David McClain, an elderly Sanford-area couple in their 70s.

...

"At this point, they've had to move out of their home and their lives have been upended," Morgan said.

Morgan declined Wednesday to discuss any possible future litigation on the couple's behalf....

"The first thing they're hoping for is an apology and a retraction by Spike Lee," Morgan said...


The First Thing

This one's a bargain. The other things might be more expensive.

Wow: MSNBC's quote (safe link to Breitbart):

“This guy looks like he’s up to no good … he looks black,” Zimmerman told a police dispatcher...

The actual quote, in context:

ZIMMERMAN: This guy looks like he's up to no good, [begin ellipsis] or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.

911 DISPATCHER: Okay, is this guy, is he white, black, or Hispanic? [end ellipsis]

ZIMMERMAN: He looks black.

Thanks to @rdbrewer4.

Update: Lead Investigator Did Not Believe Zimmerman's Story; Recommended Warrant For Arrest For Manslaughter. More facts.

ABC News said that lead investigator Chris Serino said he "disbelieved" Zimmerman's testimony and recommended in an affidavit that he be arrested for manslaughter.

State Attorney Norm Wolfinger "held off pending further review" Zimmerman's arrest, according to the Miami Herald.

On March 12, police gave the case to Wolfinger, and he told the Sanford police they needed more evidence to arrest Zimmerman, said CBS News.
