George Zimmerman Retweets Photo Of Trayvon Martin’s Corpse
Over the weekend, George Zimmerman stirred the pot, when he retweeted an image showing the dead body of Trayvon Martin, the teenager he was found not guilty of killing three years ago.
A Zimmerman admirer tweeted the photo to him, saying, "Z-Man is a one man army."
New York Daily News reports that Zimmerman retweeted the photo to his 11,000 Twitter followers. The image was used as evidence in the trial that ended with an acquittal, and shows Martin’s body lying on grass as investigators stand over it.
Twitter deleted the tweet, but Zimmerman and his admirer's accounts are still active. The tweet riled a lot of people up on the social media platform, including rap legend Talib Kweli.

One of Zimmerman's most recent tweets shows a picture of President Obama above the caption, "If I had a race baiting President, He would look like this."
Just last month, he responded to a critic on Twitter with: "We all know how it ended for the last moron that hit me. Give it a whirl cupcake."
