Gerstle family are frightened Zimmerman haters will target them too

By Paul Thompson    PUBLISHED: 23 July 2013

The family rescued by George Zimmerman after a rollover crash in Florida are terrified they will become targets for hate mobs who have made death threats to the neighborhood vigilante.

Mark and Dana Michelle Gerstle told friends they do not want to talk publicly about Zimmerman for fear they will be accused of portraying him as a hero – and face a backlash from those who consider he got away with murder.

‘They are very grateful to Zimmerman for what he did, but they do not want to get involved,’ said a friend, who asked not to be named.

‘There is so much hatred directed towards him they have got to think about their own family. There are a lot of crazies out there. If they say anything in support of him it could backfire.’

The neighborhood watch volunteer, who to many is the most hated man in America after being acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin, helped save the family after a terrifying crash.

Zimmerman pulled the Gerstles’ and their two young children from their SUV after it rolled over in Sanford, Florida near the busy I-4 motorway.

He had been driving past with another man and went to the aid of the couple who were trapped in their upturned vehicle.

It was the first public sighting of the 29 year old since he walked free from a court in Sanford after a jury cleared him of the second degree murder.

Since his acquittal he has been in hiding after receiving numerous death threats.

The Black Panther movement had previously put a $10,000 bounty on his head after the shooting of Martin on a gated estate in Sanford.

Zimmerman did not witness the accident on July 17th and left after speaking with police.

His name does not appear in the official accident report.

The heroic rescue took place less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot 17 year old Martin in February 2012.

Mark Gerstle, a 52 year old pharmacist, instantly recognized Zimmerman when he pulled him from the driver’s seat of his overturned vehicle.

He told firefighters: ‘George Zimmerman pulled me out.’

Zimmerman made sure Gerstle, his 41 year old wife Dana Michelle and children aged eight and four were safe before leaving the scene.

He did not call 911 but eight other callers did report the accident. None of the callers mentioned Zimmerman.

The Gerstle family from Port Orange, near Daytona Beach, have refused all requests to talk about their encounter with one of the most infamous men in America.

Mr Gerstle was in no mood to discuss Zimmerman when he arrived back at the family home today in a rental car.

He screamed at reporters from his garage saying: ‘Go away. I’ve got nothing to say.’

The family have lived in the single story, tan stucco home for the past 10 years.

Gerstle drove straight into his garage after speeding down the road past several TV trucks and film crews waiting to interview him.

He appeared enraged that media wanted to talk to him.

A neighbor in Port Orange said: ‘(He) will be very embarrassed by all the attention he will get.

‘He is a very quiet man and will not like having his name mentioned all over the press. I am sure he is very grateful to Zimmerman but he is not the type you will see on a chat show talking about what happened.’

Friends of the couple, who make regular trips from their home to the Disney theme parks in Orlando, said they will be concerned that they could become targets for hate mobs who have threatened revenge for the death of Trayvon Martin.

‘Let’s face it, George Zimmerman is pretty toxic right now,’ said a friend.

‘Mark has two young children and has got to live his life round here. Why would he want to mark himself out.

‘Whatever he says could be taken out of context. If he praises Zimmerman then people will say he is making him into a hero. It is easier if he says nothing.’

Like Casey Anthony, another Florida resident who was sensationally cleared of murder, Zimmerman faces living in the shadows for the rest of his life.

Not only has he and his immediate family received death threats, but his legal team have also been warned they are on a hit list.

Rallies were held across the US at the weekend by protestors angry at the jury’s decision to acquit Zimmerman on all charges.

George Zimmerman found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin after almost two days of deliberations by a jury of six women including one black woman who believed that Zimmerman was fearful of being murdered by Trayvon Martin and was justified in shooting him.

It was widely thought that Zimmerman would leave Florida to start a new life.

But with the threat of a Justice Department inquiry it is thought he has been told to remain in Florida.

Officials have also refused to return the handgun used in the killing of Martin pending a possible Justice investigation.

Zimmerman could also face a civil suit brought by the Martin family.

The neighborhood watch captain has replaced Casey Anthony, who was cleared a year ago of murdering her daughter Caylee, has become the latest figure of hate in Florida.

Even the towing company who removed the Gerstle’s car from the highway refused to talk about the incident.

The Miranda Towing Company from Oviedo were called by Seminole County Police to remove the blue Ford Explorer from the side of the highway.

When contacted by MailOnline a member of staff said: ‘We have got nothing to say’ before slamming down the phone.

I read elsewhere that the crash occurred at intersection of I-4 and Rte 417, Surely the police know where it occurred and are knowledgeable of the area

Photos of house show two vehicles, one inside, silver, one outside dark, black or blue. Presumably the latter is a rental to replace the totally damaged SUV? Doesn’t the insurance co usually investigate cause of disaster before it pays a claim?

Scene: The crash occurred at the intersection of I-4 and route Route 46, pictured, less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin

Photo shows 3 lane highway, no ramps, no road construction or obstacles. So what caused the accident? don’t police reports usually include a possible cause for loss of control? mechanical problem? excessive speed? DUI? texting? kids ?
