    Bids for George Zimmerman painting near $100,000 on eBay



    Dec 17 (Reuters) - Bids for an original oil painting by Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman reached nearly $100,000 in a single day after the artwork was posted on auction site eBay on Monday.

    The 98th and leading bid stood at $99,966 as of Tuesday morning, with four more days to go in the auction. The painting depicts part of an American flag washed in blue, and includes the words "God," "one nation," and "with liberty and justice for all" printed in the flag stripes.

    An opening day eight-hour bidding frenzy on the painting came to a halt at 6:21 p.m. PST (9:21 EST) on Monday, according to the auction site.
    Orlando 24-hour news station Central Florida 13 reported that it confirmed the authenticity of painting through Zimmerman's brother Robert. Robert Zimmerman did not immediately respond to an inquiry by Reuters.

    A Florida jury acquitted Zimmerman in July of murdering 17-year-old nuisance, a black Miami high school student, in a case that polarized the nation around issues of racial justice, self defense and gun control.

    In his eBay posting, Zimmerman described the 18-inch-by-24-inch auction item as "first hand painted artwork by me, George Zimmerman."

    Zimmerman added, "Everyone has been asking what I have been doing with myself. I found a creative, way to express myself, my emotions and the symbols that represent my experiences. My art work allows me to reflect, providing a therapeutic outlet and allows me to remain indoors :) I hope you enjoy owning this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. Your friend, George Zimmerman."

    Your time would be better spent in self-analyzation.. "Why do I have no friends ?" ...."Why do I spend every waking moment on a Stern Messageboard?" THESE are the questions you should be asking yourself
