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.

    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.

    I hope the neighbors of this couple look in on them, and offer them some friendly words. A few kind words from a neighbor would make a big difference, now.

    Similarly, I hope somebody has some comfort for the parents of the young man who was killed. He may have been no angel, but he was their child, and their grief is not going to end any time, soon.

    And then, there’s Mr. Zimmerman. Even if he is eventually acquitted of murder, he has killed another human being, and ruined his own name and life.

    I remember a wild and violent video that raised a stir, at another time. And, the wild man in the video watched the resulting turmoil and even riots, and asked “Can we all get along?”

    It’s enough to make you cry.

    [“This president still makes wrongheaded remarks about race and
    police, even after his embarrassing 2009 incident where he falsely
    claimed that the ‘Cambridge police acted stupidly’ over the arrest
    of his friend, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.,” Peterson
    said.

    [..]

    “This president is once again reinforcing the lie that law enforcement
    and most whites are racists,” Peterson said. “Considering his history
    with Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. and racist professor Derrick Bell, it’s
    no surprise that Obama sees everything through the prism of race.
    Americans needs a president who will unite us all based on truth,
    rather than dividing us with lies.”]

    I’m no legal expert, but several things about this Twitter assault sound pretty illegal to me, not the least of which are the racial aspects .

    there’s so much wrong with the situation that may or may not be corrected over the next few days/weeks. martin may have been the master of his own demise. if there was a tussle for the gun and martin took control we probably wouldn’t have picked up the story line as it would have been buried. if Zimmerman is exonerated, how are they going to walk back this mess? someone associated with jacksons local rainbow group was on a local station saying the kid was shot in the back of the head. while they work overtime to portray Zimmerman as a cold blooded killer they accuse any description of trayvon as anything other than an innocent to be an assault on his character. a lot of what is being said is lopsided while the msm works on anyone reporting a negative on trayvon.

  • jorgen

    Not only was this sinister… It was the wrong address.

    Well, both with regard to this being sinister and the address being wrong: he is an Obamabot, so what else could we expect? He is a Democrat and therefore suffer from a mental illness.

  • mg4us

    Another question investigators need to determine. . since this was a gated community and convenience store was OUTSIDE the gate, did Trayvon come back into the gated community via the gate or guardhouse or did he jump the fence. If the later, this is exactly WHY there are neighborhood watch groups!

    And if you are approached by a gated community watch group, security, police or even resident who asks who are you and what are you doing here. . the correct response is to COOPERATE and explain WHY you are there and WHOSE house/resident you are visiting. Seems pretty simple to me. .

    I am middle aged white (and dressed traditionally) yet have had to answer questions like this when I go visit my folks in their gated Florida community.

    And ALL of this profiling, watching, guarding could end when parents raise kids that are respectful, honorable and law-abiding, when groups of people behave in a similar way while they assimilate and follow the norms, and real crime is reduced or eliminated. . .then no need to always be on guard. Sounds pretty simple to me.

    Also, if kids are well behaved, they would have been in school and not on the street after having been expelled. . . just sayin’.

    How immature and self centered This is typical liberal behavior. He’s mad things are going HIS way, the laws aren’t working for him so he wants to take matters into his own hands, he spreads false information, he wants his followers to harass someone that HE disagrees with, he doesn’t see anything wrong with his own behavior, the ends justify the means so he does his own thing not taking anything into account possible consequences of his actions, innocent people suffer from his mistake, no accountability.

    I guess he thinks since he’s black AND a “Hollywood”, nobody will hold him accountable. The man is a blatant racist. When the going get rough, we see behavior in people that shows there true color. Rather than remain calm, even if angry, show goodwill and strength in a time of crisis, some freak out and act like a spoiled child.

  • Simon Said

    The attorneys should be lining up to sue that coward weasel! Spike should meet the same fate he was trying to bestow on a man who is currently proving himself to having been in his rights to defend himself. BUT, he wasn’t black so of course he’s guilty until innocent, only blacks and liberals (95% are the same thing basically) are innocent until proven guilty, just ask the so-called mainstream media and the so-called justice department who doesn’t see a need to prosecute blacks who commit crimes against other races, especially white.

    According to the 0bama and Holder justice department, hate crimes are only committed by whites or WHITE HISPANICS. The only funny part (prides me very little to say it) about this whole thing is the pathetic loser in the oval office is whiter than George Zimmerman, but you would never know that since the media dubbed George with the horrible stigma of a WHITE Hispanic, haha.

    You really want to hurt losers like the Spike. VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLARS AND PATRONAGE. Don’t buy tickets to his movies, don’t rent or buy his movies in the stores or online, don’t buy his books, don’t visit his websites, don’t go to liberal sites that post about him… instead get your news from Gateway Pundit or Drudge or third party sites that posts the stories similar to Gateway Pundit, don’t watch his tv shows, don’t support who he supports, don’t even acknowledge he even exists unless to inform others of who vile and disgusting the loser really is. The best way to hurt these vile people who think they have power is to take that away from that and it all starts with the dollars.

  • Jess

    I posted previously on another blog about the insane number of people posting all over the place as though they were there at the shooting and actually know what happened between Trayvon and Zimmerman when they don’t – period. Other than God him/herself there are only two other people that definitively know what went down Trayvon and Zimmerman. Trayvon being deceased obviously cannot tell us and since any trial for Zimmerman has not come to conclusion, I suspect Zimmerman will not be saying anything per the advice of his attorney. The only certain fact at this point is that we, the public, do not know all of the facts. Nor for that matter will we, until the trial is over and the information is made available for review. Until then any comments stating either Trayvon or Zimmerman’s innocence are nothing but pure conjecture and speculation which only further inflames the issue and will create more situations like this one. I’ve personally been witness to unfair bias based on the skin color of some of my most valued and trusted business associates and it irks me no end. However, this kind of irresponsible behavior only exacerbates that very situation. The fact that Mr. Lee or Mr. Higgins don’t seem to understand this raises their asshattery to a new level of feebleminded stupidity – something along the line of “to be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.” Call it racism call it whatever you want. I just call it plain stupid and irresponsible.
