George Zimmerman Should Be Shot Says Mike Tyson (VIDEO)
As the second-degree murder case in which George Zimmerman will be tried for the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin reaches its beginning stages, former boxing heavyweight champ Mike Tyson has an idea of how to solve the dispute that has split the country:
“It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been shot yet,” Tyson said in a recent interview. “Forget about him being arrested — the fact that he hasn’t been shot yet is a disgrace. That’s how I feel personally about it.”
Well, everyone does seem to have an opinion on the criminal case that has taken a nation by storm. Turns out that “Iron Mike” is no different, as he’s making headlines after airing out his passionate beliefs. The 45-year-old boxer-turned comedian says the outcome of the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case should be a more about encouraging people to take the old “eye for an eye” theory rather than leave it in the hands of judges, attorneys and jurors.
Is Tyson serious? You can decide that — because quite frankly, I don’t think anyone has ever been able to say for certain:
“Even though this is the best country in the world, certain laws in this country are a disgrace to a nation of savages. It’s a majority versus a minority. That’s the way God planned it,” he added. “We have to continue tweeting, we have to continue marching, we have to continue fighting for Trayvon Martin. If that’s not the case, he was killed in vain, and we’re just waiting for it to happen to our children.
“He’ll have gotten away with impunity. It’s a disgrace that man hasn’t been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That’s the only kind of retribution that people like that understand.”
On Wednesday night, special prosecutor Angela Corey announced that Zimmerman had been arrested and would soon be charged with murder in the second degree for his actions on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Florida. According to reports, Zimmerman has been transferred to Seminole County jail, where he’s being held without bail. Here’s part of Corey’s statement:
“Just moments ago we spoke by phone with Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton,” Corey said during a news conference in Jacksonville. “Three weeks ago our prosecution team promised those sweet parents we would get answers to all of their questions, no matter where our quest for the truth led us. And it is that search for justice for Trayvon that has brought us to this night.”
“We did not come to this decision lightly,” she said, declining to discuss specifics of the investigation. “We do not prosecute by pressure or petition … We’re law enforcement. We enforce the law.”
Tyson, who’s more of a comedian/entertainer these days than anything else, is preparing to do a one-man show in Las Vegas titled, “The Undisputed Truth: Live on Stage.”
Beginning April 13th at the MGM Grand, Tyson will entertain folks with his tales of drug use, sexual adventures, arrests and everything else pertaining to one of the most interesting characters in the history of boxing.
“Absolutely,” Tyson said when asked if his drug-use would be part of the Vegas show. “It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright… cocaine!”
