Folks on the Bill Press radio show Tuesday morning agreed that reports Monday of George Zimmerman helping save a family a four from a car crash are not true.
“Well I would hope that if you come across a car accident that anybody, even a murderer, would get out and help them out, right?” host Bill Press pondered. “Not get out and kick them in the teeth or something.”
He then asked his producer, Peter Ogburn, and Think Progress Managing Editor Igor Volsky what it matters if Mr. Zimmerman rescued anyone and if they think the incident ever even occurred.
“It doesn’t erase the fact that he shot and killed Trayvon Martin,” he added. “Unjustifiably in my opinion and I think the facts show that. But secondly … all right I know I’m going to get in trouble for this … do you really think is happened?”
“Yeah, I don’t think so. It smells. It stinks to high heaven,” Mr. Ogburn replied.
“Where are the pictures or video?” Mr. Volsky asked in agreement.
“All right you’re the one in trouble,” the host quipped.
It was reported Monday that Mr. Zimmerman was one of two men who came to the aid of two parents and their two children trapped inside a blue Ford Explorer SUV that had rolled over after traveling off the highway in Sanford, Fla., Thursday evening, less than a mile from where the shooting of Martin occurred.
