• Irony: Trayvon Martin rally organizer loses her own child after binging

    Sometimes, real life stories are so ridiculous that they couldn’t be made up.

    zimmerMeet Heather Zimmer from Elyria. Yesterday, she called police after she couldn’t find her son. She was discovered sleeping outside in the middle of the night by a neighbor, passed out from drinking and possibly heroin use, as well. From the Elyria Chronicle:

    Heather Zimmer, 26, called police at 5:25 a.m. Thursday to report that her 1-year-old child was missing, and said she didn’t have any idea of where he would be. Zimmer told police that she woke up at a Quincy Avenue home and realized that her child was gone after “blacking out” from drinking, according to a police report.

    Police spoke with a witness, Heather Trembly, who told police Zimmer was drinking during the evening, and she had her child, who was in the stroller. Trembly told police that she believed Zimmer was under the influence of heroin, too.

    Thankfully, the child was safe. Zimmer had taken him to an old high school classmate, who she hadn’t seen in ten years, and said she would be right back. She apparently went on her binge and never returned.

    What’s ironic is that even though she apparently cares so little for her own child, she put a lot of attention and energy into bringing attention to a person she has never met. She organized a rally for Trayvon Martin after George Zimmarman was acquitted.

    ELYRIA — A local woman outraged by the not-guilty verdict handed down by a Florida jury in the Trayvon Martin case is organizing a local rally.

    Heather Zimmer, 26, of Elyria said she has looked to no avail for a local rally in response to the verdict, but could not find one in the county.

    Zimmer has a 2-year-old son and said she can’t imagine losing her son in a similar situation.

    That last line should have most people shaking their heads.

    Zimmer should probably focus more on being a good mother to her own son, instead of being a rabble-rousing race-monger. If you are pawning your 2-year old child off on someone you haven’t seen in ten years so that you can go get wasted, maybe organizing rallies that do nothing shouldn’t be the first thing on your list of priorities. The boy certainly has my prayers and sympathies. Let’s hope his mom gets her act together.


    I was born and raised in Ohio. After growing up in the Columbus area, I moved to Cleveland to study at Case Western Reserve University, and have lived in Northeast Ohio ever since. I live in Wellington with my wife and son. I work in the private sector and have never worked in the political field.

      Where are the psychologists when we need them? The American progressive movement has all the trappings of a mental illness. But to most on the raving progressive fringe Heather Zimmer would probably be a hero. Sad thing is with Obamacare coming on now they won’t even be able to get the counseling they desperately need.

      You don’t know her. Everyone has demons and everyone makes mistakes. Heather loves her son. Instead of.condemning her. Pray for her and her son.

      You know who loves that boy sad… his father. His father who has been trying to get ahold of heather and his son for the last month. His father who found out about this whole mess from heather s friend over a month after the fact because nobody wanted to tell him. He had a right to know and you all better believe he has alot of rights he is about to go after. He has tried so hard to be a part of his sons life and that sorry excuse for a mother wouldnt let him. He is a good man and would not try to take a child from his mother but that girl is no mother. A mother doesnt choose drugs or alcohol over her kids, a mother doesnt prevent a good man and father from being in her childs life, and a mother certianly doesnt forget where they left there child! So for all of you reading these articles wondering where this babies father is… he is here, just like he always has been. He is doing what he needs to do to make sure his baby gets back home with him and this woman can never endanger his child again. And believe it will happen! He has an amazing network of people here in louisiana that are behind him 100% . There are alot of families here that love him and is son dearly and we will do whatever it takes to support our friend make sure that little boy is safe. We love you bray and cant wait to have you back home in ‘who dat’ nation!!!!!
