Don West’s daughter posted a photo to instagram and praised her father’s job at the trial by saying "dad killed it". It is a term to describe excellence but because this is a murder trial, it was viewed as insensitive by some. She was threatened with rape for it.
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.”
