You couldn’t possibly make this stuff up.
On the day that President Obama celebrates his 55th birthday, both George Zimmerman and Dylann Roof got beat downs.
Zimmerman, of course, is the former self-appointed neighborhood watchman who ran down and killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla. Roof is the man who murdered nine black worshippers at the Emanuel AME Church in South Carolina.
Zimmerman allegedly got punched while allegedly trying to brag about killing Trayvon Martin and then cried to 911 to send “three or four cars.” Roof was beat down while holed up in jail about to take a shower.
