Nice Going There, Spike!
For Zimmerman

Several days ago film director Spike Lee caused a stir by tweeting to the world what he THOUGHT was the address for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain that shot TrayVon Martin.  This was at a time the New Black Panther Party had publicly declared they were offering a $10,000 reward for Zimmerman's 'capture'.  

Now it turns out Lee had the wrong address: 


"Did they get him yet?!"

Filmmaker Spike Lee tweeted the wrong home address for George Zimmerman, the Sanford, Fla., man who many are claiming should be arrested for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin. The tweet could have potentially put the woman who actually lives at that address in danger.
The Washington Times’ Kerry Picket went to the address that Lee tweeted as members of the New Black Panther Party were offering a $10,000 cash reward for Zimmerman’s capture, “dead or alive,” and others were demanding his arrest. 
“[T]he Edgewater Circle address Mr. Lee re-tweeted out is not part of the gated Retreat at Twin Lakes where the shooting took place and where Mr. Zimmerman lives,” Picket reported. “The area is not even a gated a community.”

Because they rushed to judgement and tried to gin up a mob to do their bidding, Sharpton and Lee and others have ended up disgracing themselves.
