School bus beating provokes Zimmerman brother to slam Sharpton, Jackson


In response to a tweet that called attention to the silence of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson on the horrific beating of a white student by three older black teens on a school bus, George Zimmerman’s brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., suggested it’s time to “unplug their mic if you ask me.”

The original tweet linked to a report by the Orlando Sentinel about the brutal beating in Gulfport, Fla., which was captured on video and later released by police:

Sharpton and Jackson were instrumental in whipping up racial animosity toward George Zimmerman in the days following the death of Trayvon Martin and both men have been very vocal in their condemnation of Zimmerman’s acquittal.

Neither of the notorious race hustlers have commented on the incident on the school bus, which does not surprise former U.S. Rep. Allen West:

The 13-year-old white student suffered two black eyes and a broken hand after being beaten and stomped 23 times by three 15-year-old black students. Police say the white student was attacked after he told officials at their school one of them had tried to sell him drugs, according to

Gulfport police arrested the three older students, who each face aggravated battery charges.
