The older brother of George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, posted an image on Twitter comparing the deceased teen to an alleged Ga. baby-killer.

On March 24, Robert Zimmerman, Jr., tweeted an image of Martin alongside one of De’Marquise Kareem Elkins, the 17-year-old accused of fatally shooting one-year-old Antonio Santiago in his stroller on March 21.

Zimmerman’s brother George shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Feb. 2012.  He’s charged with second-degree murder and has pleaded not guilty, claiming he shot the unarmed teen in self-defense.

Robert Zimmerman sent the tweet multiple times. It featured side-by-side photographs and the words “A picture speaks a thousand words. Any questions?” Zimmerman addressed the tweet specifically to the NAACP, filmmaker Michael Moore, the National Rifle Association, and Anthony Cumia of the Opie and Anthony show, among others.
