Zimmerman family website details threats, lies and abuse
 Part of channel(s): Shooting of Trayvon Martin (current event)

The parents of George Zimmerman - the man arrested over the shooting of Trayvon Martin - said they have suffered death threats, abuse and lies since their son was accused of murder.Just a week after their son George unveiled a website asking for donations to help pay his legal fees, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman launched their own online forum detailing the effect the ordeal has had on their own lives.

On it, they claim their son has been 'savagely portrayed' in the media and say they have been targeted in a barrage of threatening phone calls.The Zimmermans claim they have been forced to relocate following persistent harrassment from the media and vigilante members of the public.

The couple have said their lives were turned upside down after their 28-year-old son George was arrested for the murder of Trayvon Martin, 17, in February. However, they claim their real problems
started when the television star Roseanne Barr published their names, address and phone number. On the website, Robert says: 'Almost immediately, threatening phone calls and letters were received.

'However, One in particular was alarming because it threatened to kill anyone with George’s DNA - it was not mailed, but was left at our front door. These threats were in addition to the constant media calls and visits. It was time to go. 'Literally, as I was helping Cristina into the car to leave, media representatives and others were not ringing our bell, but beating on our front door.'We took a couple changes of clothes for each of us, medicines, and a few personal belongings and fled.

However, when the media learned our new location, we were no longer safe there. At that point, we went from one location to another. 'It has been an extremely difficult existence. It’s been a challenge getting hotel rooms when we can not provide our correct names, use credit cards, or produce any valid identification. Today, that is very much what our existence is.'

The couple are using the website to ask for donations to their 'greatly increased living expenses' after they were forced to flee their home.They also write about their family history and talk at length about their son George, who is facing murder charges.

Robert added: 'I will be greatly relieved when the true facts concerning February 26 are brought to light.'However, nothing can ever return us to the family we were just a few short months ago. What Gladys and I have planned and worked for our entire life now will never be.'
