Spike Lee settles for retweeting wrong address in Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman shooting case

SANFORD, Fla. (AP) — An elderly couple has reached a settlement with Spike Lee after the pair said they had to leave their Florida home after the director help spread a Twitter posting listing their address as that of the man who shot an unarmed teen.

The couple’s attorney, Matt Morgan, announced the settlement Thursday. Morgan says Lee called them to apologize for retweeting their address. Specifics of the settlement weren’t disclosed.

Elaine and David McClain are in their 70s and say they have a son named William George Zimmerman, who lived in their Sanford area home in the mid-1990s. They say he is no relation to 28-year-old George Zimmerman, who killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26.

The killing has touched off widespread protests around the country and expressions of outrage — including from Lee and other celebrities — because Zimmerman was not arrested. The neighborhood watch volunteer has said he acted in self-defense. Occupy Wall Street doesn’t know what to make of all of this.

    Political protesters, and other true patriots must and shall gather in large numbers; regardless of illegal laws and illegal interpretation of laws, and illegal action taken by police forces. That is how a free society overthrows and ousts crooked politicians from public office. Don’t allow a crooked judge or town mayor to deny the inalienable rights of free persons. After all they are first and foremost public servants! Meet talks with talk, and meet illegal brutality against political protesters with whatever is necessary to assure the right to redress governmental officials. Make a government truly of, by, and for the people; at any cost, even blood. The so-called “federal reserve banking system act” and so-called “income tax”, they go hand in hand, are both clearly outlawed by the U.S. Constitution. Didn’t know that? Read it for yourself, please don’t my word for it. The income tax money unconstitutionally swiped from your payroll check each and every of your pay periods, is sucked up by the owners (approximately 300 elites) of the federal reserve banking system; as partial payment toward the interest they charge on the inflated money they keep creating out of thin air, which they loan to your governmental officials. And of course your governmental officials, after misappropriating the funds, simply hand the debt to the working class taxpayers! It is called inflation! The very wealthy pay only a token income tax; completely disproportionate to what the working class tax payer forks over! Now is the time for a free people to enforce the provisions of the U.S. Constitution. No matter what it takes to do it; even blood. You are not free, if each April 15, you must go to the “federal reserve” with hat in hand, and confess your earnings. The so-called “IRS” is a branch of the “so-called “federal reserve”. Both unconstitutional! What are you going to do about, continue to shrug your shoulders? Stop being a chump. Read and enforce your written constitution; that is the ultimate law of the land!

    Thank You
