George Zimmerman sure is a good friend.

The killer of Trayvon Martin, repeatedly accused assaulter of women and sometimes artist wants to help out the Florida Gun Supply shop.

Last month Florida Gun Supply decided to declare their store a "Muslim-Free Zone" in a video backdropped by a confederate flag. The Florida branch of the Council on Islamic Relations decided that was not a very nice thing to and so is suing the gun shop in federal court for discrimination.

Enter: George Zimmerman.

Remember when he painted a flag with some words on it and sold it for $100,000? Well he wants to do that again to help this struggling, xenophobic gun shop.



Zimmerman plans to sell prints of this painting and the original to help with Florida Gun Supply's owner Andy Hallinan for his gosh darn hard luck. Like it says on their website:



George Zimmerman is teaming up with Florida Gun Supply to offer signed and numbered prints of his Confederate Flag painting. This painting was painted in honor of Andy Hallinan for being a true patriot and leading the country into a better, safer America. Zimmerman's last painting sold on Ebay for over $100,000.



They even made a little BFF movie about it.



What else are friends for other than to paint and sell a controversial symbol to support intolerant business practices?

Despite the heated debate over Florida law since the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman's lawyer, Mark O'Mara, said today that "the facts don't seem to support a 'Stand Your Ground' defense."

Instead, O'Mara said the incident is just a standard self-defense case, because Zimmerman didn't have the option to retreat:

People look at "Stand Your Ground" and immediately think somebody's standing there with deadly force -- be it a gun or a weapon -- and having the opportunity to back up but not having the need to under the statute.

I think the evidence in this case suggests that my client was reacting to having his nose broken and reacted to that by screaming out for help.

Evidence made public today in the murder trial of George Zimmerman includes graphic, tearful testimony (heads up -- audio link is a tough listen) from a woman who says Zimmerman sexually abused her for a decade, starting when they were children.

The woman, identified as Witness 9, says Zimmerman "always was just, you know, very charming and personable with everyone … and just would laugh and entertain everybody... But he was different behind closed doors with me":

It started when I was 6, he's almost about two years older than I am. He would put his hands under my pants, under my underwear. He would put his hands down my shirt and just rub and grab my chest. We would all lay in front of the TV and he would reach under the blankets and try to do things. … I would try to push him off, but he was bigger and stronger and older.

Witness 9 spoke with Sanford, FL, police in March. She said she only came forward after the February shooting death of Trayvon Martin because "this is the first time in my life that I'm not afraid of him."

Mark O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, had tried to keep the interview from being released. He argues, naturally, that it "is not relevant" to the case, and will "serve to reignite and potentially enhance the widespread public hostility toward Mr. Zimmerman."

The material collected by investigators after the Feb. 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin was released today by George Zimmerman's lawyers on his website, and includes the results of a voice stress test that Zimmerman passed, a video re-enactment, a handwritten statement, and audio interviews.

Here are excerpts from Zimmerman's version of events, according to the newly released material:

"He took my head and slammed it against the concrete several times, and each time I thought my head was going to explode and I thought I was going to lose consciousness." "I started screaming for help. He told me to shut the f**k up, and I was suffocating." "I didn't want him to keep slamming my head on the concrete so I kind of shifted. But when I shifted my jacket came up…and it exposed my firearm. That's when he said you are going to die tonight. He took one hand off my mouth, and slid it down my chest. I took my gun aimed it at him and fired."

In related news, Sanford City Police Chief Bill Lee was fired Wednesday following widespread criticism of his department's initial investigation into the shooting.

Special Prosecutor Angela Corey on Thursday released several videos, crime scene photos, witness interviews, the autopsy report, and more documents relating to the February 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, and the new evidence begs the question: Can you "stand your ground" if you were the instigator?

Police reports written that night make it pretty clear Zimmerman took a beating -- they say he had a bloody face and nose, and bleeding to the back of his head. The reports also include two witness accounts that back up Zimmerman's version of events, describing a man on his back with another person wearing a hoodie straddling him and throwing punches.

Officer Christopher Serino, the lead investigator on the case, wrote that Zimmerman could be heard "yelling for help as he was being battered by Trayvon Martin."

Still, one investigator concluded: "The encounter between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin was ultimately avoidable by Zimmerman, if Zimmerman had remained in his vehicle and awaited the arrival of law enforcement."

George Zimmerman, currently facing second-degree murder charges in the February 26 shooting death of Trayvon Martin, also may be charged with a hate crime. According to Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV:

WFTV has learned charges against George Zimmerman could be getting more serious. State prosecutors said Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman, profiled and stalked 17-year-old Trayvon Martin before killing him, so the FBI is now looking into charging him with a hate crime. Zimmerman admitted to killing Martin in February during a confrontation. However, he claims the shooting was in self-defense. He's facing a second-degree murder charge, which carries a maximum possible sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. But if Zimmerman is charged and found guilty of a federal hate crime involving murder, he could face the death penalty. FBI investigators are actively questioning witnesses in the retreat at the Twin Lakes neighborhood, seeking evidence for a possible federal hate crime charge.

Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother, taped this Mother's Day video, which calls for the appeal of the Stand Your Ground act, the self-defense law that is the basis of George Zimmerman's defense.

The law has come under scrutiny in the wake of Martin's death, and Fulton's plea gives a sense of urgency to its change.
