Hate Your Carrier? Just Be Grateful It Didn’t Give You George Zimmerman’s Old Number
Orlando resident Junior Alexander Guy decided last month at the age of 49 it was time he finally purchased his first cell phone. It would’ve been a very non-newsworthy event, if the new phone number he was given didn’t happen to be George Zimmerman’s old one. The same phone number Zimmerman recited in the recorded 911 call he made on the evening of Trayvon Martin’s death.
Guy says his phone rang around the clock for two days straight with calls for Zimmerman. Some callers were threatening, others just angry. He estimates there were 70 in total. Guy’s lawyer Robert Trimble states that the nonstop calls caused Guy to feel unsafe in his own home. To protect his life and the life of his mother, Guy locked the cell phone in Trimble’s safe and relocated. The cell phone remains locked away.
