Tweet Compares Trayvon Martin To Accused Baby Killer

SANFORD, FLA (WAOK) – The older brother of a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer charged with murder is stirring up a new controversy in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert, sent out a tweet this week with side-by-side photos of Martin and the 17-year-old charged in the shooting death of a baby in Georgia.

In another tweet, Robert Zimmerman said the photos show one person who may have murdered at point-blank range and a person who gave every indication that probably would.

George Zimmerman has been keeping a low profile while on bond and is scheduled to go on trial for second-degree murder this summer.
