Mike Tyson on George Zimmerman: "Disgrace He Hasn’t Been Shot Yet"

| by Michael Allen

In an interview with Yahoo News about his upcoming one-man show in Las Vegas, former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson suggested that George Zimmerman deserves to be shot for the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

Tyson said: "My personal feeling is that, as a young kid that was beat on by a bully, that was pretty much singled out—the guy [Zimmerman] stalked him, didn't follow instructions from a superior officer, when they said, 'Stop following the kid.' That tells you everything right there..."

"It's a disgrace that man hasn't been dragged out of his house and tied to a car and taken away. That's the only kind of retribution that people like that understand. It's a disgrace that man hasn't been shot yet. Forget about him being arrested--the fact that he hasn't been shot yet is a disgrace. That's how I feel personally about it."
