A painting by George Zimmerman is going for nearly six-figures on the online-auction site eBay.

 

Florida’s infamous neighborhood watchman is trying to pull himself out of debt by selling his original artwork online.

 

His first piece — a blue American flag with some choice words from the Pledge of Allegiance, including “Liberty and justice for all” — went from an initial bid of 99 cents to $99,966 as of early Tuesdayexternal-link.png. Bidding ends on Dec. 21.

"Liberty and justice for all"?

I didn't realise he was so great at satire.

He was found not guilty, and rightfully so.  Justice prevailed.

Hopefully some buyer doesn't win it, intentionally damage it and file a not as described case

Yup, he was not found guilty thanks to unjust ALEC laws.  Unjustice prevailed.

Justice didn't prevail.  The law did, but not justice.

 

OT: That painting is a pile of trash.  Not sure why anyone would want it regardless of who painted it.

We all know why. But we cant talk about it here since there's already a big thread about this subject.

I like that. Well said Sir. Agree or disagree we must respect the law for our system to work. Better to free 1000 guilty than imprison 1 innocent.

 

It's decent all things considered. Could use a splash of red somewhere, anywhere. I'm sure some psychiatrist could give us a colorful opinion on why there's no red, lol.

it is one brave soul who got money at his disposal who is bidding all the way up. What a weird world we live in.
