George Zimmerman is a free man for the first time in 15 months, but he and his family are still in hiding, according to Zimmerman's paranoid brother, Robert.
During an appearance on Fox News, Robert Zimmerman accused President Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder of tapping his family's phones. “We do have concerns and always have of having our phones tapped, having our phones listened to by the administration or whomever, said Zimmerman.
Zimmerman made the statements after his brother was acquitted of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
“A lot of the things that we do are connecting in person—that’s how we’ve managed to stay hidden for so long," said Zimmerman, explaining the family's self-imposed isolation. "It’s kind of old school, but it works. We’re back to what we were doing in March of 2012, because it’s right in everybody’s mind right now.” he added, referring to staying safe in the wake of several threats and acts of violence related to last week’s “Not Guilty” decision.
Zimmerman also accused the Department of Justice of bowing to pressure from civil rights groups.
“I think Eric Holder is being pressured by some groups who were calling for, initially, just an arrest. These same groups keep moving around the goal posts: the NAACP, Al Sharpton, the Rainbow Push Coalition with Jesse Jackson.” Zimmerman said.
“First they wanted just a simple arrest and that’s it, have his fair day in court and whatever the verdict is, we’ll respect it. Then when the verdict was coming they wanted him to be found guilty. But the verdict isn’t what they wanted, so now they’re moving the goal post again, and calling on the Department of Justice to investigate him more.” he added.
“I understand the Justice Department’s responding to pressure,” Zimmerman said. “But I think that the American people need a little bit of time to digest those two words ‘Not Guilty.’ It doesn’t mean nothing happened. I think most of the people who were upset with that outcome didn’t actually pay attention to the trial.”
