Elderly Florida Couple Lives in Fear After Spike Lee Tweets Their Address By Mistake

Nice work, Spike.
Spike Lee retweeted George Zimmerman’s home address this weekend… twice.
The Blaze reported:

Not only was this sinister… It was the wrong address.
The address Spike Lee tweeted belongs to an elderly Florida couple in their 70’s… Not George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin.
The Smoking Gun reported:

With Twitter and Facebook continuing to explode with posts purporting to contain the address of George Zimmerman, property records and interviews reveal that the home is actually the longtime residence of a married Florida couple, both in their 70s, who have no connection to the man who killed Trayvon Martin and are now living in fear due to erroneous reports about their connection to the shooter.

The mass dissemination of the address on Edgewater Circle in Sanford–the Florida city where Martin was shot to death last month–took flight last Friday when director Spike Lee retweeted a tweet containing Zimmerman’s purported address to his 240,000 followers.

The original tweet was sent to Lee (and numerous other celebrities like Will Smith, 50 Cent, and LeBron James) last Friday afternoon by Marcus Davonne Higgins, a 33-year-old Los Angeles man who uses the online handle “maccapone.” Higgins included the direction, “EVERYBODY REPOST THIS.”

Higgins, pictured above, first began disseminating the Sanford address to his Twitter followers last Wednesday, including the claim that Zimmerman “Like the fat punk he is, he still lives at home with mommie & daddy.” In a simultaneous post to his Facebook wall, Higgins told his 4000 friends, “FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT & TOUCH HIM.” He also claimed in another post that, “REAL TALK MY PEOPLE OUT THERE IN FLORIDA JUST TOLD ME GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS NOT AT HIS HOUSE THEY OUT THERE RIGHT NOW.”

Higgins’s dissemination of Zimmerman’s purported Edgewater Circle address was not, however, limited to cyberspace. At a protest rally last Thursday in an L.A. park near his Crenshaw home, Higgins held a sign containing Zimmerman’s name, address, and phone number.

Except, of course, none were accurate.

The man who shot Martin is George Michael Zimmerman. Higgins has repeatedly identified him as “George W. Zimmerman.”

The residence on Edgewater Circle is actually the home of David McClain, 72, and his wife Elaine, 70.

    They have little to worry about. Sharpton’s people can’t read a map any more than they can read bus schedules. Presumes they can read to begin wid.

    Of course there are these talking GPS units.

    What would be poetic justice is for a protest to occur outside this slugs home. See how he likes getting a taste of his own medicine. That would drive him nuts.

    The Global March for Jerusalem

    [As the group’s website claims, “We aim to make this march a turning
    point in the nature of the confrontation, with the occupation having to
    face millions of protesters and demonstrators demanding Freedom for
    Palestine and its capitol Jerusalem.”]

    ht: American Islamic Forum for Democracy

    Who is organizing a mass “march to Jerusalem”?

    “The Global March to Jerusalem, slated for March 30 (Land Day for the Palestinians), is a coordinated attempt to breach Israel’s borders from surrounding Arab states—Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Participants are planning to arrive from around the globe –Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and even America. Their goal is to ensure that as many as one million people overwhelm Israeli border security and march to Jerusalem, where they will assert Muslim rights to the holy city.”

    Let’s remember Channon Christian and Chris Newsom who were both brutally raped, tortured and murdered after being carjacked and kidnapped on Jan-07-2007.

    Newsom was repeatedly sodomized with an object and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet bound and his head covered. Barefoot, he was either led or dragged outside the house to a set of nearby railroad tracks. He was shot in the back of the head, the neck, and the back, and his body then set on fire.

    Channon’s death came only after hours of sexual torture, medical examiner Mileusnic-Polchan testified. Channon suffered horrific injuries to her vagina, anus and mouth. She was not only raped but savaged with “an object,” possibly a broken chair leg, the doctor testified. She was beaten in the head. Some type of chemical was poured down her throat, and her body, including her bleeding and battered genital area, likely scrubbed with the same solution – all while Channon was alive, the forensic expert said. She was then “hog-tied,” with curtains and strips of bedding, her face covered tightly with a small trash bag and her body stashed inside five large trash bags before being placed inside a large trash can and covered with sheets. Channon died slowly, suffocating, the medical examiner said.

    Of course, most people have never heard of this case; The MSM just wasn’t that interested. But things would’ve been very different if the perp/victim demographics were reversed.

The blood is ALL on him for organizing the fascist state run media towards provoking an african style race war that could lead to thousands of deaths….all sparked by LIES.

    What a bunch of sick idiots. If anything happens to that couple, there’ll be *crickets* from the MSM.

  • L.E. Liesner

    This is what you get when a bunch of irresponsible brainless racist decide to seek revenge. This old couple could very well become collateral damage in this stupid race war.

    I would call for Douche-wick Marcus Davonne Higgins’ address to be revealed, but his mom doesn’t deserve to be hassled like that. However, the Matt Foresta treatment is not off the table.

  • listingstarboard

    Buddy G-When I read all of the horrific details of what those savage animals did to that couple I was forever changed. Easily the most inhumane,barbaric,and evil attacks ever committed by so called human beings. The fact it was ignored by the MSM is no surprise. I don’t know what I would do if someone did that to my daughter or son.

    Sue the bastard for as much money as can be taken from him.

  • mg4us

    The couple should get a good lawyer and sue Spike Lee for making a threat and defamation of character.

    They also should issue a warrant for Spike Lee’s arrest concerning a credible threat.

    Apparently, in Florida, if you are a black, a thug, or a black thug, you can do whatever you want with impunity. Even terrorizing the elderly.
