George Zimmerman, civil-rights hero?

Well this is certainly a different twist.
Check it out:

George Zimmerman a civil-rights hero?

That’s one of the eye-openers in Jack Cashill’s new book “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,” published Tuesday by WND Books.

It was Zimmerman, acquitted by a jury in July of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, who led the charge to bring to justice for a black man assaulted by a white teenager in 2011.

In “If I Had a Son,” Cashill brings to light the Sherman Ware incident and Zimmerman’s crusade for justice, writing:

“In fact, Zimmerman made about as unlikely a racist poster child as America could produce. In December 2010 a police lieutenant’s son, Justin Collison, sucker punched a black homeless man named Sherman Ware outside a bar [in Sanford, Fla.] Although Ware suffered a concussion and there was video evidence of Collison’s attack, no action was taken against Collison, who is white, for nearly a month. Reuters reporter Daniel Trotta talked about the incident in his April 3 analysis of the early days of the Trayvon phenomenon; he made no mention of Zimmerman’s role in that controversy.
