George Zimmerman’s trial defense attorney Don West recently reported he received e-mails from people threatening his daughters with rape over a controversial post on Instagram. Rachel West, who was not in the family picture, was in the courtroom Monday.

In a response to a July 2nd prosecution’s request to investigate the social media post, West said the family photo prompted “threats of violence” that were “vicious.” West also said he was distressed that in a request to investigate the post, the prosecution had made “reckless, dangerous and inaccurate allegations.”

Prosecutors say the post is linked to witness Rachel Jeantel.

The caption reads ““We beat stupidity celebration cones (icons) #Zimmerman #defense #dadkilledit.”

Here’s the picture:


“West claims he took the picture with his daughter’s phone because he has the longest arm, but did not find out about the controversial Instagram post until June 28,” Local10 added.

“I apologized for my daughter’s immature and insensitive behavior and confirmed that I did not approve of what had happened,” West said.

Granted, his daughter shouldn’t have posted the caption, but I thought nothing justified threats of rape.  Right?  Where are the leftists who constantly harp about a “war on women”?

Where’s the DOJ?
