George Zimmerman  VIA WKMG

Prosecutors in Florida announced Wednesday that they will not pursue domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman.

The former Sanford, Fla. neighborhood watch volunteer was most recently arrested on Nov. 18 after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told police he pointed a shotgun at her face during an altercation at her Apopka, Fla., home.

Zimmerman was charged with aggravated assault, domestic violence and battery. At his bail hearing, the prosecutor told the judge that Scheibe informed police she was afraid for her life and that Zimmerman had choked her the week before in a previous, unreported incident. The judge set his bond at $9,000, and ordered Zimmerman to stay away from Scheibe, not possess any firearms, and remain in the state of Florida.

But on Dec. 6, Scheibe changed her story, stating in an affidavit that she felt “intimidated” by police and may have “misspoken.”

She stated: “I am not afraid of George in any manner and want to be with him.”

In July, Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder in the February shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

 


Zimmerman killed a young man and was given back his gun. He’s had several more occasions of misuse of his gun, but still he has access to it. What are the authorities waiting for? One thing is for sure this man is a ticking time bomb that no one can afford to be around when he goes off.

Series of indiscreet emails reveals how Lake Mary chief Steve Bracknell believes Zimmerman, 29, to be ‘ticking time bomb’

I have to say that I agree 100% with what Chief Steve Bracknell is saying. From the onset of the Trayvon Martin murder, the psychological make up of Zimmerman is obvious to anyone that read his thoughts on the murder and saw how he presented himself during the trial. There is something truly off about this man. I feel that there is no one that he trusts or values the life of, not even himself. He appears to be a man that reacts without thought in each situation. He doesn’t take any time to think about the actions he takes. When and if he thinks about things, it’s not in the way that others do. Somewhere things broke down in his life and made him believe that the world and all those in it are his enemy and that he must protect himself from all the evil around him. This obviously means that no one around him is safe especially while he is permitted to carry a gun. But even that won’t stop him.

My stomach has hurt for days and I’ve come to realize that I’m upset about the amount of injustice in the world.  Most prevalent in my mind is George Zimmerman’s ability to ride around frees still with gun in hand.  Even when he’s stopped by police for speeding, he’s proud to let the officer know that he has a gun.  He’s only told to put it in his glove compartment and is given a warning for his speeding.  Zimmerman is seemingly disappointed when the officer doesn’t recognize him from TV.

It bothers me that Edwin Alemany’s new lawyer, Geoffrey Nathan, is so concerned about the “deplorable” conditions that his client is enduring while imprisoned. I would think that he would be more focused on defending his client.  Accommodations are the same for all those in prison. There are no special privileges for prisoners.  They all receive the same treatment. Cells are just hot due to poor ventilation because they can’t allow for a lot of windows.  They are in prison after all.  The prison has to worry about the safety of the prisoners as well as any visitors and the staff. I feel that Nathan’s guilt should be placed elsewhere.  If it were me, I would be more concerned about the families and victims that his client has forever changed the lives of.  Amy Lord wasn’t even Alemany’s first victim that week.  On Tuesday, July 23rd and Wednesday July 24th Alemany assaulted two young woman in South Boston, stabbing one and physically assaulting the other.  Fortunately, both woman escaped with their lives. Alemany then killed Amy Lord on Friday, July 26th, but not before making her withdraw money from various ATM machines. When he had everything he needed from her, he then assaulted her and dispose of her body. Someone that cold-hearted and has a wrap sheet with a listing of 30 crimes, doesn’t get much sympathy from me.

I’ve had more violence than I can stomach for a while!


A 28-year-old Caucasian Hispanic male vs. a 17 year African-American high school student. Both men lived in the same gated community. Still somehow George Zimmerman still felt unsafe. Likely because Trayvon looked different than he did and therefore must be a danger to him. The statement that “Jurors were told that Mr Zimmerman was allowed to use deadly force when he used his Kel Tec pistol to shoot the unarmed 17-year-old, not only if he actually faced death or bodily harm, but also if he just thought he did.” stated in an article written by Adam Withnall of The Independent newspaper on Monday, July 15, 2013 made my skin crawl.  Imagine how many men, women and children would be dead if people just “thought they were facing death” and therefore shot whoever was before them.  I understand that Zimmerman may have been a part of a neighborhood watch program, but if you see a man just jogging and not carrying anything that he might of use to hurt another person, his clothes are not dirty or covered in blood, what good reason would you have to question him? The only reason George Zimmerman was scared is because he saw an unarmed black man running. Juror B37 would have you believe that race was no way a reason in this case. Put yourself in Trayvon Martin’s place and answer that question again. I’ll be honest, I’ve had my own thoughts and worries about my safety around certain people in certain areas. There is a difference, my thoughts are just thoughts. I never act based on those feelings and I certainly don’t carry a gun. I always give people the benefit of the doubt no matter what the skin color is. We can continue and I know some will, to be angry about all of this, but it won’t change that Trayvon Martin is dead at the age of 17 and George Zimmerman is still alive. George Zimmerman will be given back his gun, the same gun that killed Trayvon Martin.  He will be watching over his shoulder, but I know I will be watching over mine too. Because ignorance has been and will continue to be the biggest killer of all.

R.I.P. Trayvon Martin, and my prayers continue to be with his families and all the families that have lost a member due to racial violence.

Tragic!

Tragic!

When you leave your house to go on for a jog on a cool night. You make sure to dress appropriately so that you don’t get sick. You shouldn’t have to worry about how tall you are, or the color of your skin. Your running, not as if you are running away from something bad you did, you are running, because you are really jogging. A man appears before you because he thinks you’ve done something wrong. A fight for what he thinks is his safety occurs. Your only weapon is the color of your skins and the limbs on your body. The man before you has his doubts, his pride, his ignorance, his fear, and worst of all a gun. It seems to me that he knew when he approached you who was going to win and it couldn’t be you because of the color of your skin.

Some may say that if he had worn his hoodie and certainly not with his hood on, maybe this all would have been avoided. He made it worse when he decided to defend himself by fighting with Mr. Zimmerman. Would it have happened any differently if he was running in an argyle sweater? I think not.

George Zimmerman, his family and his defense team are celebrating his being acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin. While the family and friends of Trayvon is crying out injustice. Just think about the last time you ever saw a person of color acquitted for killing a person not of color. Then maybe you could see why this is all so tragic.
