As expected George Zimmerman is a registered Democrat and self-identified Hispanic. He is the Trayvon Martin shooter who is much maligned by the press and among liberals for apparently shooting Trayvon Martin in self-defense. Zimmerman voted for Barack Obama in 2008.

George Zimmerman is Hispanic according to the voter registration records. We already knew that but it is interesting that he identifies as Hispanic rather than Caucasian. His mother is from Peru and his father white. He is a from a biracial family with African-American relatives married into his mother’s side of the family.

Friends and family have given public witness that George Zimmerman is not racist as the public mob has cried this past week, egged on by racial opportunists like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and even President Obama himself. The facts appear to corroborate the testimony of those who knew him and witnessed the event.

Zimmerman was following Trayvon Martin as part of his neighborhood watch duty one late evening as Martin walked through his neighborhood. An altercation occurred which witnesses say was started by Martin. He was apparently seen punching Zimmerman while he lay bleeding on the ground. Zimmerman responded by shooting him in the chest with a concealed weapon. All the facts are not known yet.

So what we have here is a minority on minority altercation, and if there was a crime committed by either party it was done by a Democrat. Democrats are far more likely to commit violent crimes than their Republican counterparts according to statistics.
