What’s in a Number … Junior Alexander Guy Get’s George Zimmerman’s Old Cell Phone Number and Death Threats
As Steely Dan sang, ‘Rickki Don’t Lose that Number’ … unless it’s George Zimmerman’s old one.
What’s in a number? Don’t ask that to 49 year old Junior Alexander Guy who bought his first cell phone last month in Orlando, FL from T-Mobile and managed to some how get George Zimmerman’s old cell number. Yes, the same George Zimmerman who has been charged with second degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin and is presently back in jail on revoked bond. Zimmerman’s address and info was tweeted by those who wanted to create a mob mentality against Zimmerman. Nice job. Needless to say, along with Zimmerman’s number came a boatload of death threats. According to Guy he received up to 70 death threats. The 49 year Orlando man moved out of his home and relocated his mother, who had lived with him, to a different location, fearing for both of their lives.
At age 49, Junior Alexander Guy got his first cell phone last month. The calls started immediately.
Strangers called at all hours. Some were insulting. Others angry. Sometimes, they threatened him.
“You deserve to die!”
By Day 2 he figured out what was going on: T-Mobile had given him the phone number formerly used by George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in February.
The number —407-435-2400 — was the one Zimmerman spelled out to a police dispatcher in a recorded call the night of the shooting that has since been widely circulated by news organizations and is available on the Internet.
Thankfully the cell number has finally been retired. Shame on those cowards that actually made calls and death threats no matter who was in possession of the cell number. You people deserve to be prosecuted in the same manner that you want George Zimmerman to be. In the end, those who purposely and willfully with malice and forethought may actually be more guilty of a crime than George Zimmerman.
