4805 Mount Hope Drive Baltimore, MD 21215 .Mr. Clayton, Subject: George Zimmerman
Dear Mr Clayton

-The events of February 26, 2012 are traglc and the details of which wIll not he disclosed until the police report is made puhllc, Regardless of thIs fact, George Zimmerman has been hidIng for his life because of the dl!l;lth threats made against him by the black community. He has been found guilty (in the public eye) until proven Innocent. He has been called a racist and a bigot and there have been very few that have stood up for him. There has been an unprecedented rush to judge George regardless of the facts. The black community as a whole has turned theIr backs and blindly followed the furor stirred up by selfproclaImed leaders of your communttv, These leaders have rallies and chant horrIble thIngs of a parson they know nothing about, Ifjustice is what the community wants don't you think you should wait for the Investigators to do theIr Jobs first I' Isn't that Justice7

The purpose of this letter of the remind you that things are not always what they seem. Sometimes tragic things happen and there are ALWAYS two sides to every story. As African-Americans you can surely identify with that, While I am not prepared to get into the details of the investigation because I do not want to make a rush to judgment like the rest of society, I would like to poInt out some things that manv of your followers already know. These people that I refer to have, to date/lacked the moral .character and principle to do the right thing even though It may be unpopular,
You will recall the incident of the beating ofthe black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer. The beating sparked an outrage in the community but there were very few that stepped up to do anything about it. Iwould presume the inaction was because of the fact that he was homeless not because he Was black. Do you know the Individual that stepped up when no one else In the black community would? Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Po you know who waited for the church-gears to get out of church so that he could hand them fliers In an attempt to organize the black community' against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January ath J 2011 at Sanford City Hall?? That person was GEORGEZIMMERMAN.

The main point for this letter is to explain to you that the black communlty has labeled George a racist without any investigation at all. Regardless of the fact that George personally spoke to many of your constituents, not one has stepped forward and said, Hey I know tho: face. Thot is the Hispanic guy that was standing up for sherman Wore. Th(1t was the only non-black/ace In the meetings/or jvsUce in this case. You know as well as I do that there are many NAACP followers that recognIze George from the

.,.".

Ware case as well as many other things that he dOM for the black communltv. It's time for you to end the race Issue In this matter and call for cooler heads to prevail, If something happens to George as a result of the race furor stirred up by this mlscharacterlzatlon of George there-will be blood on your hands as well as the rest of the raclsts that have rushed to judgment. You need to call off the dogs. Period. PUBLICLY AND SWIFTLY. You will not be the only recipient of this letter. I am going to scream as loud about this as the NAACPhas against "ra.::lst George. There wlll be a press release with a copy of this letter mailed to the media but I am going to fllve you a head-start In doing the right thing, The actions of the NAACP on this will help the world decide whether your organization i5 in fact racist or If It Is for the greater good of society.
lJ

be providing my name because all of our family Is in hiding and frankly scared by the threats from the black communltv..IfYDlI feel the need to respond I will See this in the media (if vou do the right thing) and I will be happy to provide more details showing how wrong you really are. I will not remain anonymous after the outcome of this case is determined. There are going to be a lot of people that need to be held accountable for their rush to judgment.
BTW, I have attached herewith a copy a/the/lyer that was placed thot Itlight jog the memory of your amnesia-laden sl)ppor~ers.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do uothlng," - Edmund Burke . We live in all era where, a simple grass roots movement propelled by the discontented constituents of leaders, whom were entrusted with OUl' safety, can and shall make a slgnifioant impact Chief of Police Tooley blatantly lied. He attempted to appease the masses by stating that he was "bllndslded" by the medias release of this monsters attack on an innocent, homeless and peacekeeping bystander,
It has already been revealed that Chief Tooley not only received an email petitioning his

attention to the matter on behalf of the Seminole County Sheriffs Office, yet he was also provided with the video taped evidence of the attack and chose to do nothing but pass the buck in hope that the problem would simply go away. Mr. Hargrett's feeble attempt to patronize the public by stating that Lieutenant Collison's son did not receive any preferential treatment is nothing short of irritating and belittles our inte11ikence. There are only two possible explanations, either Lieutenant Colllson's son received preferential treatment, or Sanford PD always neglects to handcuffs and does not arrest assailants of innocent victims, neither of the two ore acceptable, so clcnrly you are a lim' Mr. Hargrett, I challenge you reading this to stand together and not "simply go away" as Chlef Tooley and his corrupt subordinates wish) but to have out' voices heard and to hold accountable those whom let this atrocious attack pass unpunished until the media revealed it.
