Mark O’Mara quits, gives parting advice to George Zimmerman: ‘Pay me’

Just days after announcing that he had accepted a job as a legal analyst on CNN, Mark O’Mara has stepped down as George Zimmerman’s attorney.

Just days after announcing that he had accepted a job as a legal analyst on CNN, Mark O’Mara has stepped down as George Zimmerman’s attorney.

O’Mara made the announcement one day after Shellie Zimmerman called 911 claiming that her now-estranged husband was threatening her and her father with a gun. Police say they are still investigating the incident and that both George and Shellie could eventually face charges.  

Police also said that video of the incident was captured on Shellie Zimmerman’s iPad, which was smashed to pieces, and that they are trying to retrieve the video to get a clearer picture of what happened.

During a press conference on Monday, O’Mara was visibly annoyed at the recent events surrounding his former client. When asked if he had any parting advice for Zimmerman, he said, “Pay me.”

    Of course, that’s why the first to get off of a sinking ship are the rats. They sense what’s coming before the crew and passengers know there is a problem. O’Mara knows that there is something really big coming and he knows he won’t pull off a second miracle with the same client.

    It must be awful to get a guilty sonofabitch off scott free! Now that the asshole that MURDERED the poor defenseless black kid is once again acting like a rambo gun nut, O’Mara knows its best to split rather than have his reputation sullied any further.

    Oh, and good luck getting paid Mr. O’Mara. I wouldn’t push Zimmerman too hard for your payment, he’d probably shoot your ass.

    Superb!!!! I agree. There’s some ugly stuff getting ready to come down and even the Zimmerman-zealots are getting sick of supporting their Boy George.

    Be Careful when you try to collect. He may feel his life is in danger since you proved he is such a wimp. Maybe you should threaten him to get your money. Your white and he may get convicted of defending himself from your imposing physique. Two birds one stone..plus the added bonus of Irony.

    This is not fair. Next thing you know, O.J. Simpson and Casey Anthony are going to claim THE aren’t guilty, either.

    This is kathy Rundells fault. She could have charged him with discharging a firearm in public, public disturbance, illegal discharge of a fire arm, etc etc insted they charged him with murder 1 which is impossble to prove. Thereby, making everyone go out and buy a gun to protect themselves against the other asshole with a gun.

    Mark O’Mara is the problem. He is the reason this ass is out in the public. At the rate Zimmerman is self destructing, he will be dead in no time. The ghost of Trayvon is haunting him. This P.O.S. should not be breathing the same air as everyone else.

  16. billyjoe

    September 11, 2013 at 10:37 am

    Surprise. They were both found “not guilty” by a court of law. OJ is in jail for a different crime he committed a few years ago.

    Pretty awesome how all the Zimmerman apologists are seeing their boy for the true asshole he is. Way to go. A kid gets murdered because of this idiot’s poor judgment, this jerk goes on national television and says he would do it again and invokes that it was God’s will. This is someone you want to defend? I don’t think so.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Zimmerman’s defence crowd funded? And if so, where did that money go if not to his attorney?

    What Mark O’Mara did was despicable. He put a thug back on the street, and now he is going to profit from it. He is certainly the lowest scum that our society can ever produce.

  23. Lynne McLaren

    September 11, 2013 at 1:37 pm

    She could not charge him with discharging a firearm in public because he was claiming he was threatened, and invoking the stand your ground statute. That statute makes it impossible to charge someone with ANYTHING if they were threatened. Therefore, she HAD to charge that he was NOT threatened,, and had no reason to BELIEVE he was. Which makes Murder the only thing she COULD charge him with. And what sucks is, it worked. He sullied the reputation of the child he murdered, to the point that he was able to make 12 people question whether he had a reason to fear for his safety or not. I only take solace in knowing that there is still the possibility of Federal charges, and that Trayvon Martins parents at least have the option of civil recourse, suing Zimmerman for wrongful death. But what price do you put on being able to see your son graduate, go to college, get married?

  24. Robert Hughes

    September 11, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    He didn’t need a miracle the first time. That case should have never seen the inside of a courtroom. This attorney is also still the attorney of record in other proceedings, he just won’t be representing Zimmerman in this case. This is nothing but folks looking to hang this guy. If he had actually brandished a weapon while committing an assault, he would have been arrested, not just detained for questioning. Get a grip.

  25. Robert Hughes

    September 11, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    A poor, defenseless Black kid? Please. Martin was 17 years old, 165 pounds and nearly 6 feet tall. He was bouncing Zimmerman’s head off the pavement. Zimmerman killed a little thug in self-defense. Let’s get the facts straight.

    Females are notorious for lying before, during and after divorce proceedings to maximize all they desire from that divorce. The most heinous events are the dames who coach children to lie about the male to harm the innocent male and maximize the positives for the lying dame.

    If you doubt what I proclaim feel free to scour the Web for ample evidence to back-up what I declare.

    Have a wonderful week!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ?? The supposed video evidence supporting the article really does not match up with the article! Where is video showing “O’Mara was visibly annoyed at the recent events surrounding his former client. When asked if he had any parting advice for Zimmerman, he said, “Pay me.”” ??????

    So you will take the word of a proven liar and sociopath like George Zimmerman over his wife’s, Obbop? Shellie did perjure herself at his behest, he perjured himself all the way through his trial. I think I’ll trust her word before I will ever even consider his.

  30. Bob Cull

    September 11, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    You are right about one thing, Yiorgios, there was a thug present the night that Trayvon died! His name was George Zimmerman! I can’t believe all you people continue to defend this sociopath, does it not tell you anything that he continues to have run ins with the law since the trial just as he did prior to it? He thinks he can do as he pleases, his Daddy the judge has pulled his butt out of the fire all of his life and sooner or later his luck will run out. Let’s just hope that it happens before someone else dies.

  31. Nicole Storm

    Of course, if he does shoot his now ex attorney, he’ll say he’d done it in self defense. 😉

  32. Nicole Storm

    September 11, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    So you’re saying he outweighed and overpowered the poor, skinny, defenseless armed stalker who’d followed him on his way home from the store?

    It never ceases to amaze me how willing some white supremacists are to believe practically anything that vilifies the victims of racist violence.

    The medical evidence and common sense both put the lie to his head being smashed repeatedly into concrete. If it had been, he would have had more serious injuries and he would have been unconscious and unable to use his gun. The lie about how he got the gun out and fired it is a whole new problem. He perjured himself there was no LIVING witness to counter his perjury and he walked away from a murder. Not to worry though this sociopath will find his way into the prison cell he should be in already sooner or later.

  35. Michelle Lane Williams

    September 11, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    Ok so you are saying that this pretty big guy was smashing Zimmerman’s head into the ground?I think he would have had more then scratches. I work with kids that size. If they chose to smash someones head into the ground repeatedly , that person wouldn’t be getting up.

  36. Oldracer

    September 11, 2013 at 9:35 pm

    Maybe you could look up REAL pictures of Trayvon Martin, like the one of him laying dead on the ground, and his last family photo. He was NOT some baggy-pants, underwear showing, tattooed gang-banger, he was dressed like a little yuppie. 6 feet, 165 is SKINNY. Zimmerman started the whole thing and got in over his head, Zimmerman had a police record, Zimmerman was hunting people with a loaded gun, and Martin was the thug? Weapons experts have stated it would have been impossible for Zimmerman to pull his gun out of the holster if he had been in the position he claimed. MMA fighters have come out and disputed Zimmerman’s claim of having his head beaten on the pavement, they have said his head would have looked like hamburger if that were true. More likely, Zimmerman slipped and fell, and when he fired the gun, the recoil hit him in the nose.Ever consider that scenario? You need to look deeper into this for the reality, not the media distortion or Zimmerman’s LIES. Zimmerman has already proven himself to be a LIAR, remember he had to go back to prison for lying to the judge about money matters? Any law that lets a stranger approach a minor who is DOING NOTHING BUT WALKING HOME and KILL HIM is WRONG. And the fact that you think Zimmerman is defensible on any level speaks volumes about YOUR value system. He is now showing his true colors and it isn’t over.

    GZ never invoked Stand your Ground perhaps you will someday watch the actual trial so you get the facts first hand and not bad info from CNN,and MSNBC’s of the world.

  38. Oldracer

    September 11, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    It was Zimmerman who was riding around with a loaded gun, Zimmerman had the police record of violence, Zimmerman initiated the encounter, yet Trayvon was the thug? Zimmerman was NOT a “neighborhood watch captain” as he told the police, that neighborhood had NO WATCH GROUP. Neighborhood watch volunteers do not carry guns and do not confront. You have been duped from day one about this, and I would suggest you and Robert look a little deeper into what really happened here.

    September 11, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    Self Destructing? he is getting a divorce after all the shit he has been thru doesn’t come as a shocker. Trayvon is lawn fertilizer now because if I as community watch person follow you does that give you the right to come back and confront me and bash my head into cement to cause bodily harm or possibly kill or maim me. Your ok with that? let me guess you voted for obama too, i know it;s a black thing.

  40. Phil Asophical (@BarryMaicock1)

    September 11, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    You are incorrect the thug is now lawn fertilizer for acting like a thug and having to prove how tough he is because you dissed him by looking at him wwrong, Trayvon got what he set out to do street justice, i don’t see you trick ass bitches saying anything about the white australian baseball player who was killed because 3 black teens siad they were bored.LOL I love liberal hypocrites

    This loser Zimmerman is in self destruct mode and he’s going to get caught showing his slip, sooner than later. He’s been abandoned by anyone that’s decent, including his family and the only support he has left is among rednecks, who he knows deep down inside hate his guts are only using him.

  44. Bob Cull

    September 12, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    Hate to pop your balloon, Phil, but you don’t know what the hell you are talking about. That Australian ball player was NOT killed by three black teens nor was he targeted because he was white.

    I know the facts in that case, I wrote an article about it for another site. That guy was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, if he had been black they still would have shot him. When the cops asked them why they did it one of them replied, “for the fun of it.” They were ONE black kid, an Hispanic and a WHITE kid, they were bored, had the gun and decided to ruin their lives by doing something stupid.

    you`re obviously ignorant of how the legal system works , Hughes. if it didn`t happen in the cops presence they need witnesses willing to testify and are all too happy to walk away, especially when zimmy fans like you are ready to pounce on them. I`m impressed with the ” brandishing usage , though. academy dropout?

    September 16, 2013 at 11:57 pm

    October 3, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    lol all you people are pathetic. The scum that claimed OJ was innocent are the same scum that claim Zimmerman is guilty. Weather Zimmerman is truly guilty or not is irrelevant to you. Fact is you are all racist/liberal zealots with no credibility. Zimmerman was guilty to you the second the media said he was “white”. Also, you claim Travon Martin was this “poor innocent black kid” which is quite hilarious seeing how there are pictures and postings by him that prove the complete opposite. In reality,both Zimmerman and Martin were/are trailer/ghetto trash punks. Anyone that says otherwise is either ininformed, a typical black racist, a typical white racist, a liberal zealot douchebag or a right wing zealot bastard. You are all liars and bigoted hypocrites. If you want to see why there is so much division and racial hatred in this country look in the mirror. To hell with all of you and your selective outrage.
