George Zimmerman Rescues Family From Car Crash

George Zimmerman Rescues Family From Car CrashGeorge Zimmerman, who has not been seen publicly since his acquittal in the murder of Trayvon Martin earlier this month, surfaced last week to rescue an unidentified family trapped in an overturned vehicle on a Florida highway, police said Monday.

‘No reports of injuries’

Sanford Police Department Capt. Jim McAuliffe told Fox News that Zimmerman, 29, was identified by a crash victim as the man who pulled him from the mangled vehicle.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said the single-car accident occurred July 17 at approximately 5:45 pm. and involved a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had left the road and rolled over. The sheriff’s office said there were four occupants inside — two parents and two children. There were no reports of injuries.


‘Death threats’

The deputy responding to the crash said that when he arrived, two men — one of whom was Zimmerman — had already gotten the family out of the overturned vehicle. Zimmerman was not a witness to the crash and left after making contact with the deputy, the sheriff’s office said. The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and Route 417 in Sanford, police said.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder on July 13 in the killing of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012. Zimmerman’s parents, meanwhile, have told ABC News that they have received death threats and have been unable to return to their home following the verdict.

With all the death threats and other controversies, would you have stopped to help rescue the family if you were Zimmerman? Do you think George Zimmerman should have been declared guilty in the Trayvon Martin murder case?

Pastor’s Corporal Punishment Advices Cause Child Deaths?

Tennessee pastor Michael Pearl came under fire after several children have died in the recent years due to extreme corporal punishment inflicted by parents who seriously followed his controversial parenting advises in his book.

Pearl, 66, and his wife Debi, 60, said that the systematic use of “the rod” is effective in disciplining children. Their self-published book of 670,000 copies, To Train Up a Child, contains instructions on how to hit six-month-old children with a switch, and other things such as a quarter-inch flexible plumbing line. Pearl says older children should be hit with a belt, wooden spoon or willow switch. These methods are based on “the same principles the Amish use to train their stubborn mules.”

In September, Larry and Carri Williams of Sedro-Woolley, Washington were charged with homicide by abuse after their adopted daughter Hana, 11, died from hypothermia and malnutrition. She was found naked and emaciated in their backyard. Hana, originally from Ethiopia, had been deprived of food for days and was forced to sleep in an unheated barn. Heeding Pearl’s advice — “a little fasting is good training” — the couple beat Hana with a plastic tube. Carri even gave a copy of the book to a friend. [Read more...]
