"God freed Boosie and killed Zimmerman. I'd say today was a good day," Says a 911 responder who admits they were in no rush to the scene of Zimmerman's death. 911 first responders found George Zimmerman's lifeless body at a Florida gun range after responding to an emergency call that he shot himself while loading his weapon."
"I'm not saying we took our time getting there, but we've shown up faster to black neighborhoods" According to a first responder they stopped at every light, didn't use a siren and drove behind an elderly woman all before finally arriving on the scene. "If he was a rapper he'd be more famous now that he's dead, but nope! Everybody just glad he dead"
Indeed, the news caught the attention of thousands of Facebook and Twitter users and drew comments that mostly "anti-Zimmerman." Of course, others won't believe the article easily, claiming that it's nothing different from stories found on other satirical news site like the Daily Currant and the National Report.

Alive and Signing Autographs
Zimmerman is still very much alive and even signing autographs at Orlando gun shop on Saturday, according to TMZ. And apparently, he found a way to channel the popularity he gained from the controversial case he had gone through the past two years.
"Zimmerman did a meet-and-greet Saturday at an Orlando gun shop. People lined up for an autograph pic of Zimmerman and his dog ... actually only around 20 people lined up," TMZ reported.
