... 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.
... The heroic rescue took place less than a mile from where Zimmerman shot 17 year old Martin in February 2012. ...This insanity is thanks:
1) to vile leftists who favor mob "justice"Assuming this story is accurate, good for Zimmerman - obviously he's a stand-up guy.
2) to a vile leftist media and race-baiters for misrepresenting the Zimmerman case, and
3) Barack Obama for stirring up racial resentment to satisfy his certifiably nuts, far-left base.
As for Mark and Dana Gerstle, I have mixed feelings. Given the leftist mob-justice mentality on display they're justifiably fearful for their family's safety. On the other hand, it would be better if they showed some courage. Maybe they'll step up soon.
