George Zimmerman Injuried in Shooting Incident in Lake Mary, FL (Update: Atty. Mark NeJame Says Apperson Shot in Self-Defense)(Update: Charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon)
Well, its been a couple months since George Zimmerman has been in thew news …
As reported at WESH, George Zimmerman was injured today in a shooting incident in Lake Mary, Florida. According to reports, Zimmerman suffered a minor gunshot wound. The police said that the individual who shot at Zimmerman was the same man, Matthew Apperson, who has had an on-going feud with Zimmerman. According to the police, George Zimmerman did not fire any shots, according to police. Zimmerman was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital, and was quickly released. The two have an ongoing dispute and were involved in an altercation in September 2014, when Apperson accused Zimmerman of trying to kill him in a road-rage encounter.
George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watchman, was found not guilty of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin in 2013.
George Zimmerman suffered minor injuries in a shooting incident in Lake Mary on Monday afternoon, according to Lake Mary police.
Zimmerman flagged down an officer shortly after the incident, police said.
“He walked normally into the ambulance, so he wasn’t being helped or nothing,” said witness Ricardo Berrare. “They actually backed up the ambulance next to his driver side so he could walk into the door.”
Chopper 2 video showed a bullet hole in the passenger window of the vehicle Zimmerman was in.
“At this time, the investigation has proven that George Zimmerman was not the shooter,” Lake Mary Police Department spokeswoman Bianca Gillette said.
Zimmerman was hit in the face with glass and debris and has since been released from Central Florida Regional Hospital, according to police.
Kenneth Cornell, who works at the nearby Cyrus Diagnostic Imaging, said Apperson ran up to him about 1 p.m. saying he had just shot George Zimmerman.
Cornell said he called 911 and handed the phone over to Apperson.
“He said it was a road rage incident, that they were driving down the street and George pulled a gun on him,” Cornell said.
Zimmerman was hit in the face with glass and debris, police told WESH. Investigators are waiting to speak with both men, who sustained “minor injuries” and have been released from the hospital, Gillett said less than four hours after the shooting.
Police Chief Steve Bracknell told WESH that the shooting may have been related to an “ongoing dispute.”
Attorney Mark NeJame – This client fired in self-defense
The attorney for a Seminole County man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman during a road rage incident on Monday said he opened fire in self-defense.
Police said the shooting stemmed from a road rage incident on Lake Mary Boulevard and involved Matthew Apperson, of Winter Springs, a man involved in another confrontation with Zimmerman in September.
“He simply maintained that he acted in self-defense,” attorney Mark NeJame said. “We see everything to suggest that that is correct.”
The Winter Springs man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman in Lake Mary earlier this week must turn in his weapons and avoid contact with him, a judge ruled this morning.
Matthew Apperson, 35 of Winter Springs, was charged Friday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and firing a deadly missile into an occupied conveyance.
“I don’t care whether you’ve been shopping at Publix for two hours and have a full cart of groceries, or whatever. You see Mr. Zimmerman walking through that door, you’re the one who has to leave,” Circuit Judge Michael Rudisill told Apperson during his first appearance this morning at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.
Typically, people arrested are ordered to stay away from specific places where the people they are accused of attacking live or work. But in this case, Zimmerman did not want his whereabouts made public, Rudisill said.
“I don’t know where he’s going to be, I can’t tell you where not to be,” Rudisill told Apperson.
But if Apperson happens to see Zimmerman, he is not allowed to interact with him, Rudisill said.
The man accused of shooting at George Zimmerman bonded out of jail over the weekend and has surrendered his guns and ammunition to law enforcement, police said.
Matthew Apperson, 36, appeared in court Saturday charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and firing a deadly missile into an occupied conveyance, police said.
He bonded out of jail that same day and then surrendered his weapons on Sunday, as ordered by a judge. His arraignment has been set for June 23.
Interview With George Zimmerman, Calls Out Barack Obama … I Was Victimized by Obama Increasing Racial Tensions
I guess George Zimmerman can expect an IRS audit after these comments …
In a new interview that was recorded on March 8, 2015 with his divorce lawyer, George Zimmerman stated that he was victimized by President Barack Obama, who, according to Zimmerman, heightened racial tensions following the death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman suggested he should have encouraged Americans to not rush to judgment. Zimmerman blamed Attorney General Eric Holder and Barack Obama for fanning racial flames in his case. George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin and no federal civil rights charges were pursued against him either.
Like George Zimmerman or not, Obama, Holder, the liberal MSM and the race-baiting smear merchants tried their best to destroy this man.
“Instead of rushing to judgment, making racially charged comments and pitting American against American, I believe that he [Obama] should have taken the higher road,” Zimmerman said in the interview, referring to President Obama saying, “if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon,” after Martin’s death. “For him to make incendiary comments as he did and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution, he by far over-stretched, over-reached.”
George, are you serious? Have you been paying attention to what Barack Obama, the Divider in Chief, community agitator has been doing for the past 6 years as president? Take the high road, sorry that is not in Obama’s vocabulary.
Q. George you mentioned unfairness and if you had to point to a government agency or official, who do you think the highest level of fairness to your personal situation?
A. By far, the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama. He had the most authority and in that sense I would hold him in the highest regard believing that he would hold that position and do his absolute hardest to not inflame racial tensions in America.
Unfortunately after even after Jay Carney, his press secretary stated in the White House briefing that the White House will not interject in a local law enforcement matter and at most a state criminal matter, President Obama held his Rose Garden speech stating if I had a son he would look like Trayvon. To me that was clearly a dereliction of duty pitting Americans against each other solely based on race. He took what should have been a clear-cut self-defense matter and still to this day on the anniversary of incident he held a ceremony at the White House inviting the Martin-Fulton family and stating that they should take the day to reflect upon the fact that all children’s lives matter. Unfortunately for the president I’m also my parent’s child and my life matters as well. And for him to make incendiary comments as he did and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution he by far overstretched, overreached, even broke the law in certain aspects to where you have an innocent American being prosecuted by the federal government which should never happen.
Q. What would you have had the president do, what would you have considered the proper response throughout the entire situation and at the end?
A. I think that throughout the process the president should done when he said he was going to do and not interject himself in a local law enforcement matter or a state matter and waited until the facts came out. Instead of rushing to judgment, making racially charged comments and pitting American against American. I believe that he should of taken the higher road given his position and said, been an example, been a leader as the president should be and say lets not rush to judgment. As I’m sure he would want that same luxury afforded to him if he was accused of something, and asked for a calm, ask for peace. Ask for the Martin-Fulton family and their attorneys not to incite violence and asked for calm from the entire community.
Rush Limbaugh Says Barack Obama Treats PM Israel Netanyahu Like He’s a ‘White Policeman from Ferguson’
OUCH, IF THE TRUTH HURTS …
On Monday’s radio show, Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh invoked Ferguson to compare Barack Hussein Obama’s disdain of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a white police officer from Ferguson, Missouri. And on that note, El Rushbo segwayed to … “and speaking on which, the Department of Justice did announce that they were going to stick it to Ferguson.
You look at how Obama has treated and does treat Netanyahu, you would think that Netanyahu was a white policeman from Ferguson, Missouri. I mean, that’s the conclusion that you would come to. Or that he was one of the cops that choked Eric Garner, or he was one of the jurors in the Trayvon Martin case.
So let’s understand this, in order to correct the problem the police in Ferguson need to arrest more white folks who have done nothing? This is Eric Holder’s idea of how individuals rights were violated? Did anyone honestly think that Eric Holder was not going to get a scalp for “his people” (VIDEO).
Ferguson, Mo., is a third white, but the crime statistics compiled in the city over the past two years seemed to suggest that only black people were breaking the law. They accounted for 85 percent of traffic stops, 90 percent of tickets and 93 percent of arrests. In cases like jaywalking, which often hinge on police discretion, blacks accounted for 95 percent of all arrests.
The racial disparity in those statistics was so stark that the Justice Department has concluded in a report scheduled for release on Wednesday that there was only one explanation: The Ferguson Police Department was routinely violating the constitutional rights of its black residents.
Attorney General Eric Holder … Playing the Race Card Until the Very End, “It’s Too Hard to Bring a Civil Rights Cases,” Wants to Lower Standard of Proof … “Recommends Reading ‘The Autobiography of Malcolm X’ to You ng People
Sorry, but outgoing Attorney General is nothing more than a racist.
Attorney General Eric Holder cannot leave soon enough. Yesterday would not have been too soon. Sorry, but when you are driven by color, when all you see is color, when everything you do is dictated by color, no matter what color that is, you are a bigoted racist. In an interview with the Politico, Eric Holder said that during his final weeks in office he plans to push for a new, lower standard for civil rights offenses. Why, because Holder could not press civil rights charges against George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin and was unable to get a feather in his cap and press civil rights charges against police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. Both individual, George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson, were never convicted of any crime, Zimmerman was acquitted and found not guilty by a jury and the Robert P. McCulloch, the Prosecuting Attorney for St. Louis County, Missouri, received a “no true bill” and no indictment from the grand jury. However, this is not good enough for the likes of Eric Holder, because all he sees is color. The hell with a jury decision or one from a grand jury. Holder only sees that black people can be wronged. Remember the voting intimidation case by the NBPP in Philly that Eric Holder nixed? But as Holder says, when it comes to “My people”, its a different story. My people? Gee, didn’t you think that the Attorney General of the United States upheld the law for all people?
Eric Holder ‘My People”
Attorney General Eric Holder plans to push, during his final weeks in office, a new standard of proof for civil-rights offenses, saying in an exit interview with POLITICO that such a change would make the federal government “a better backstop” against discrimination in cases like Ferguson and Trayvon Martin.
In a lengthy discussion ranging from his own exposure to the civil rights movement of the ’60s to today’s controversies surrounding the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven partly by race.
“There have been times when I thought that’s at least a piece of it,” Holder said, adding that “I think that the primary motivator has probably been political in nature … [but] you can’t let it deflect you from … your eyes on the prize.”
Holder told POLITICO that between now and his departure, probably in early March when the Senate is expected to confirm Loretta Lynch as his successor, he will call for a lower standard of proof for civil rights crimes. Such a change would make it easier for the federal government to bring charges in the case of a future Ferguson or Trayvon Martin.
“I think some serious consideration needs to be given to the standard of proof that has to be met before federal involvement is appropriate, and that’s something that I am going to be talking about before I leave office,” Holder, 64, said.
Lower the standard of proof for a civil rights case, seriously? Please tell me that this fool, this bigot, this race-baiting, hate-filled individual does not have the authority or power to do so. Then again, when does the Obama administration ever abide by the US Constitution or the law? Civil Rights prosecutions have existed for years, but it is only when Eric Holder is Attorney General that the standards need to be changed. It is truly sick that this man only sees the world through the bias lenses of black and white, where only white can be wrong and evil. As I said earlier, Holder cannot leave office soon enough, this country will be a better place once he does.
Oh, and just to show exactly who and what Eric Holder is, when asked by the Politico what book he would recommend to a young person coming to Washington, Holder made a revealing choice: “The Autobiography of Malcolm X.”
Eric Holder, America is a ‘Nation of Cowards’
The best comments of Eric Holder and his ilk can be heard below by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. Watch the VIDEO below where Clarke blasts Holder and calls him out for what he truly is.
“Some one said Eric Holder. I’m known for not sugar coating things. This pissed me off. I sat up and watched as events unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri. An unfortunate situation, obviously. Amy time a law enforcement officer uses force and takes a life it deserves a thorough, transparent vetting … But groups started to converge on Ferguson, Missouri like vultures on a roadside carcass. Groups like the New Black Panther Party. People like Al Sharpton. To come and exploit that situation and instead of coming in to help and try to restore calm, poured gas on that fire with some of their inflammatory and irresponsible rhetoric. And I sat up there and listened to Gov. Nixon and I sat up there and listened to Claire McCaskill the senator. And then I sat up there and listened to Eric Holder through law enforcement officers under the bus for political expedience. [...]
I expect that from Gov. Nixon. I expected that from Claire McCaskill. Those are nothing but two-bit politicians. They do that sort of thing, that’s what politicians do. You know that. But I did not expect that from Eric Holder, who calls himself a law enforcement officer.”
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry at Cornell University … I Hope Trayvon Martin ‘Whooped the Shit Out of George Zimmerman’
HOW DOES THIS INDIVIDUAL STILL HAVE A JOB WITH NBC?
On February 23, 2015 MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry spoke at Cornell University during an MLK Commemoration speech said the following, “I hope he whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman” during the fatal confrontation that led to Martin’s death in 2012. Seriously? I am not sure who we should be more embarrassed for, Cornell University or the memory of Martin Luther King Jr.
Let me understand this, you brought an individual to speak at an event to that honors the memory of MLK Jr, a man that preached non-violent change, and your guest speaker stated that she hoped Trayvon Martin whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman. REALLY? Seriously, how does Cornell University chose this clown from MSLSD to speak during the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture? Shame on Cornell for thinking they would get anything thought provoking or intellectual from the likes of Melissa Harris-Perry. Do any of you actually watch her on MSNBC? Obviously not by their TV ratings.
Embarrassing & Disrespectful speech brought to you by same individual that asked AG Holder to quack like a duck
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said Monday that she hoped Trayvon Martin “whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman” before he was fatally shot.
“I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive,” Harris-Perry said, speaking at the university’s Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture. “I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law.”
“And I hope he whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman. And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him and you know how I know? Because he killed him,” the MSNBC host added.
The Cornell Review did not appear to be that impressed either by the actions of Melissa Harris-Perry, ‘MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Curses, Jokes in MLK Speech at Cornell’.
What a shame and an embarrassment for Cornell it was to feature MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry as the speaker at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture on Feb. 23.
The event, titled “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality,” was ostensibly meant to serve as a thought-provoking reflection on contemporary race relations and the role the teachings of Dr. King should play today in light of recent elevation of racial tensions due to the cases involving Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice.
Instead, Harris-Perry delivered an hour-long comedy routine lightly mixed in, here and there, with some serious thought. Though she did reference Dr. King on numerous occasions, Harris-Perry clearly established from the very beginning that this event was really just about Harris-Perry, and not Dr. King, one of the greatest figures of the 20th century. After a humbling introduction delivered by Dean of Students Kent Hubbell, which referenced Dr. King’s 1960 speech at Cornell and also honored Cornellians slain in the Civil Rights Movement, Harris-Perry started off by taking a “selfie” with the audience behind her.
For the university’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture, Harris-Perry delivered remarks entitled “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality.” The campus conservative newspaper, The Cornell Review, published video from the event showing the MSNBC host saying the following about the night Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman:
I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive. I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a “Stand Your Ground’ law. And I hope he whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman. And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him, and you know how I know? Because he killed him.
In the end, Eric Holder’s Department of Justice will not file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.
The Department of Justice will not be filing charges against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Try as they might to to charge Zimmerman in this politically motivated sham of a DOJ investigation, it turns out they had nothing. Zimmerman was originally charged with the first degree murder of Trayvon Martin as many irresponsible individuals stated it was racially motivated and a hate crime. The “white” Hispanic killed a black teen. Even though the feds had intimated that there would be no charges filed, federal officials have insisted their civil-rights probe would be thorough and complete as it went on for nearly three years. After all is said and done, after the liberal MSM and Obama/Holder Justice Department tried to railroad Zimmerman, he walks away with an acquittal and no civil rights charges. That usually occurs when one kills another in a self defense shooting. As Legal Insurrection opined, “This decision comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with the actual facts of the case.” Imagine that Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, NBPP, NAACP and the rest of the race-baiters, George Zimmerman did not violate Trayvon Martin’s civil rights or kill him because of his color.
Local prosecutors initially did not feel there was enough evidence to prosecute the case. They were replaced and a politically motivated prosecution was conducted to get their pound of flesh from George Zimmerman. The murder prosecution failed, not the federal investigation into civil rights charges against Zimmerman has failed. One has to wonder if a civil law suit is next? However, I would have to agree with Robert Zimmerman, a wrongful death trial, could be very troubling to the family of Trayvon Martin and could lead to very unpleasant facts that were never a part of the criminal trial.
Justice Department officials met with Martin’s family today, and were told that they will not be filing charges against George Zimmerman, who shot the 17-year-old after a confrontation in 2012. Thursday marks three years to the day since Martin was killed.
Federal prosecutors concluded there is not sufficient evidence to prove Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman in Sanford, Fla., intentionally violated Martin’s civil rights.
“Although the department has determined that this matter cannot be prosecuted federally, it is important to remember that this incident resulted in the tragic loss of a teenager’s life,” Acting Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta of the Civil Rights Division said. “Our decision not to pursue federal charges does not condone the shooting that resulted in the death of Trayvon Martin and is based solely on the high legal standard applicable to these cases.” The case sparked intense discussions over race in America because Martin was walking to his home with only Skittles and an iced tea in his hands.
Florida prosecutors tried to convict Zimmerman of state-level murder and manslaughter charges, but in July 2013 a jury acquitted him, saying prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to prove their case.
Shortly after Zimmerman’s acquittal in state court on July 13, 2013, federal investigators resumed active investigation. Federal investigators reviewed all of the material and evidence generated by the state of Florida in connection with its investigation and prosecution of Zimmerman, including witness statements, crime scene evidence, cell phone data, ballistics reports, reconstruction analysis, medical and autopsy reports, depositions, and the trial record. Federal investigators also independently conducted 75 witness interviews and obtained and reviewed the contents of relevant electronic devices. The investigation included an examination of police reports and additional evidence that was generated related to encounters Zimmerman has had with law enforcement in Florida since the state trial acquittal. In addition, federal authorities retained an independent biomechanical expert who assessed Zimmerman’s descriptions of the struggle and the shooting.
The federal investigation sought to determine whether the evidence of the events that led to Martin’s death were sufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman’s actions violated the federal criminal civil rights statutes, specifically Section 3631 of Title 42 of the U.S. Code or Section 249 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, as well as other relevant federal criminal statutes. Section 3631 criminalizes willfully using force or threat of force to interfere with a person’s federally protected housing rights on account of that person’s race or color. Section 249 criminalizes willfully causing bodily injury to a person because of that person’s actual or perceived race. Courts define “willfully” to require proof that a defendant knew his acts were unlawful, and committed those acts in open defiance of the law. It is one of the highest standards of intent imposed by law.
The federal investigation examined whether Zimmerman violated civil rights statutes at any point during his interaction with Martin, from their initial encounter through the fatal shooting. This included investigating whether there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman violated Section 3631 by approaching Martin in a threatening manner before the fatal shooting because of Martin’s race and because he was using the residential neighborhood. Investigators also looked at whether there is evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman violated Section 3631 or Section 249, by using force against Martin either during their struggle or when shooting Martin, because of Martin’s race.
“Although the department has determined that this matter cannot be prosecuted federally, it is important to remember that this incident resulted in the tragic loss of a teenager’s life,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta of the Civil Rights Division. “Our decision not to pursue federal charges does not condone the shooting that resulted in the death of Trayvon Martin and is based solely on the high legal standard applicable to these cases.”
State Attorney Phil Archer Announces Aggravated Assault Charges Won’t Be Filed Against George Zimmerman
ASSAULT CHARGES DROPPED AGAIN …
On Friday, State Attorney Phil Archer, whose jurisdiction includes Brevard and Seminole counties, announced that his office will not pursue aggravated assault charges against George Zimmerman. The often in trouble Zimmerman, since being acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, was arrested on 1/9/15 and booked for aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon in Lake Mary, Florida. Zimmerman was accused of throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend. However, Phil Archer stated that there was been a subsequent recantation by the alleged victim of her initial statement along with “new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further”.
George Zimmerman was arrested, again, this month in the suspected aggravated assault of a girlfriend. And, again, a Florida prosecutor has opted not to press formal charges — after the alleged victim backed off her claims.
State Attorney Phil Archer, whose jurisdiction includes Brevard and Seminole counties, announced Friday that his office won’t file charges against Zimmerman, who first came to the world’s attention for his arrest and eventual acquittal in the 2012 shooting death of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin.
Friday’s announcement relates to the 31-year-old’s arrest in Lake Mary, Florida, on January 9.
“While it clear that the officers had probable cause to arrest Mr. Zimmerman, which was affirmed by the circuit court judge at initial appearances, the subsequent recantation by the (alleged) victim of her initial statement along with new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further,” Archer said.
The woman has since denied that Zimmerman threw a bottle or that she ever feared him, according to a statement Friday from Lake Mary police.
“She also made it clear that she did not want to proceed with the case,” said police, noting that Lake Mary police Chief Steve Bracknell “concurred with Archer’s decision.” “A lack of eyewitnesses or other corroborating evidence to dispute her version of the incident also contributed to the decision.”
This is the second time that domestic violence charges have been dropped against Zimmerman. Back in 2013, domestic violence charges were dropped against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, recanted in an affidavit that Zimmerman pointed a gun at her face.
A NOTE TO GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: GO AWAY!!! GO INTO HIDING, MAYBE TRY THE WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM, SOMETHING. OJ SIMPSON USED TO PULL THIS SAME NONSENSE AFTER HE WAS ACQUITTED AND LOOK WHERE HE WOUND UP. TAKE A LESSON, FROM OF ALL PEOPLE CASEY ANTHONY, CONSIDER YOURSELF LUCKY AND REMOVE YOURSELF FROM THE PUBLIC VIEW. CONTINUE TO BE A NARCISSIST AND YOU WILL EVENTUALLY WIND UP IN PRISON.
George Zimmerman Arrested and Charged with Domestic Violence in Lake Mary, FL … Throwing Wine Bottle at Girlfriend
WHAT A SURPRISE THAT GEORGE ZIMMERMAN FINDS HIMSELF IN TROUBLE AGAIN … THIS IS ZIMMERMAN’S THIRD ARREST IN RECENT YEARS.
31 year old George Zimmerman finds himself in trouble with the law again, this time he was arrested and booked Friday night for aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon in Lake Mary, Florida. Zimmerman is accused of throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend. Seminole County Judge John Galluzzo set Zimmerman’s bond at $5,000, prohibited him from any contact with the victim, returning to her home or entering Volusia County and must surrender all fire arms. What are the odds that Zimmerman will abide by the court’s order? Following his acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin in 2013, Zimmerman seems to not be able to stay out of trouble. George Zimmerman is due The judge also ordered Zimmerman to pack up any personal belongings the woman may have left at Zimmerman’s home and give them to his lawyer. Zimmerman is expected back in court at 1:30 p.m. February 17, 2015 in front of Judge Donna McIntosh.
The 31-year-old was booked around 9:45 p.m. for aggravated assault — domestic violence with a weapon. According to Don West, Zimmerman’s attorney, his client threw a wine bottle during the incident.
Zimmerman is prohibited from contacting the victim, returning to her home or entering Volusia County. He must surrender all firearms by Tuesday, but will not have to wear a GPS monitoring device.
George Zimmerman — the man acquitted by a Florida jury over the death of Trayvon Martin — was arrested Friday in Florida on suspicion of aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon, local authorities said.
The 31-year-old Florida man was arrested by police in Lake Mary around 10 p.m. and booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, according to that facility’s website. That facility, like its website, is run by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
VIDEO – Orlando Sentinel, George Zimmerman charged with aggravated assault
George Zimmerman faces charges of aggravated assault with a weapon after allegedly throwing a bottle of wine at his girlfriend earlier this week, according to his lawyer.
Zimmerman, 31, was arrested Friday night in Lake Mary where he is currently living, but his attorney Don West said the fight involving his girlfriend happened four or five days ago.
Lake Mary Police spokeswoman Officer Bianca Gillett said the fight happened at Zimmerman’s Valley Wood Way residence in Lake Mary on Monday night, but nobody involved called the cops.
Police found out about the fight when they pulled Zimmerman’s girlfriend over for a routine traffic stop, Gillett said. More information about the incident was not immediately available.
Wearing blue scrubs and Crocs, Zimmerman stood before Judge John Galluzzo this morning where a $5,000 bond was set. It’s unclear if and when Zimmerman, who is currently unemployed, will post bond. West said he was not going to pay Zimmerman’s bond.
Even though this incident didn’t involve a firearm, Galluzzo told Zimmerman that he had until Tuesday to surrender any firearms in his possession.
Ben Shapiro of Breitbart News Nails It … Ferguson, MO Grand Jury Verdict of No Indictment for Officer Wilson Explodes Media’s Lying Racial Narrative
THE LYING LIBERAL MEDIA HAS THEIR FALSE RACIAL NARRATIVE EXPOSED …
For a great read of a post-analysis of what transpired in Ferguson, Missouri and the liberal media’s lying racial narrative being exposed for the garbage it was, check out Ben Shapiro’s, Senior Editor-At-Large of Breitbart News, article at Breitbart.com … ‘Ferguson Verdict Explodes Media’s Lying Racial Narrative.’ As many times before, the MSM tried to create a story that belied the facts. The media ran with an out of control white cop who killed an innocent and unarmed black young man, a “gentle giant.” They ran with the story, not because it was true, but because they wanted it to be true. It gets old that we are continually told the same race-baiting story. It is Ben Shapiro’s final analysis that nails the media for the lie that their racial narrative truly is. Believe it or not, “every black man shot by police is not a Selma marcher.”
Truthfully, the angry and sullen reactions of those who wanted Wilson tried are understandable. They’re understandable because most Americans live in the evidence-free narrative created by malicious media liars, and the politicians they enable. They live in the evidence-free world of the political left, which maintains that America remains deeply racist, that every white cop is Bull Connor, and that every black man shot by police is a Selma marcher. So long as they live in that world, racial reconciliation will remain a dream, and racial polarization will remain a tool of the political and media elite to sell papers, raise cash, and drive votes.
Ferguson Verdict Explodes Media’s Lying Racial Narrative:
Just as the media did during the George Zimmerman trial and in the aftermath of Zimmerman’s shooting of Trayvon Martin, the media attempted to cram the square peg of the Wilson-Brown shooting into the round hole of white police racism. That meant portraying Brown as the latest sainted racial victim; this time, rather than the Trayvon Martin narrative of hoodies, Skittles, and iced tea, the media hit upon the notion that Brown was a “gentle giant.” The Brown family, Al Sharpton, MSNBC, CNN, The Washington Post, and other major media outlets ran with the story that Brown was a “gentle giant” who wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Then, it turned out that Brown had robbed a convenience store minutes before his altercation with Wilson.
Similarly, the media trotted out the story of Dorian Johnson, Brown’s friend, who said that Brown held his hands up in surrender after being shot in the back, and that Wilson executed Brown. The entire media ran with that one originally; the lie spawned an entire “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” movement. Of course, it later turned out that Johnson had helped Brown rob the store, and that all available autopsy evidence contradicted Johnson’s story.
But never mind: the media had somehow turned the true story of Michael Brown – the story of a 6’5”, 289-lb. 18-year-old strong-arm-robbing a convenience store, confronting a police officer and attempting to take his gun, running away, turning back to charge that officer, and being shot multiple times – into the story of Emmett Till. Never mind that there was not a single shred of evidence suggesting that Wilson targeted Brown based on race; never mind that Brown matched the description of the robbery suspect because he was the robbery suspect; never mind that Brown attacked an officer twice. No, this was a pre-ordained narrative for the media: white racist police officer strikes down young black unarmed man. The result of that overwrought and outright false media-generated controversy: extended riots in Ferguson.
The story beat the facts. So the media ran with the story.
So did President Obama. In 2013, Obama told America that Trayvon Martin could have been his son; in this case, Obama told the United Nations that riots in Ferguson represented America’s nasty racial legacy.
As the grand jury verdict neared release, the media built up the story. We were warned of riots if Wilson escaped indictment; Erin Burnett of CNN said that such a verdict would be the “nuclear option.” Nancy Grace of Court TV helpfully added that Michael Brown’s height did not “mean he was a violent teen.” And the Brown family attorney, Benjamin Crump, openly stated that the grand jury was corrupt, long before the verdict.
Predictably enough, the Michael Brown case fell apart the moment it hit the legal system. It turns out, as Robert McCulloch said, that evidence still trumps media hype in the legal system – at least sometimes.

YES IT IS NUTS … Salon Interview Compares Death of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown to the Symbolic Killing of Barack Obama
This might be the most colossally ignorant, foolish and ridiculous conclusion ever …
An author schilling his book in a Salon interview, whose name and title of book will go unnamed for obvious “moonbat” reasons, stated during an entirely too long diatribe that some how the killings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown were some how a symbolic killing of Barack Obama. HUH? The dimwitted individual said the following, “But I don’t think it’s nuts that in a certain way, when that cop killed Michael Brown, and when George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, they were killing Barack Obama.” Wrong Keebler, it is not only NUTS, it is frigging INSANE. The intellectually challenged author claims that there has been a rise in racism because of Obama being called names and how he was treated. I guessed he must have missed the George W. Bush years when he was called everything from stupid to Hitler. You also must have missed the 2006 movie, “Death of a President,” where Bush is assassinated by a sniper after making a speech in Chicago in October 2007. Hmm … what would you call that GENIUS?
The LEFT continues it’s lame defense of Obama as racism.
But with Barack Obama, racism has become ordinary discourse since his election in a way that it wasn’t before, and the contempt and the ridicule with which Republicans treat him. Not even Bill Clinton, who they felt they could disparage because they thought he was a dumb white cracker, not even Bill Clinton has been treated the way Barack Obama has been treated. He’s been treated as if he’s an impostor, an interloper and as scum.
I mean, the things that have been said about Michelle Obama, the way she’s talked about on Fox News, you know, forget about Twitter or comments on news stories or anything like that where all the morons live, but the way she’s been talked about, can you imagine Laura Bush ever being talked about that way? Laura Bush actually killed somebody. But that was never mentioned, that was never talked about, because it was impolite to bring it up.
Anyway, don’t let me go on like this. But, yeah, yeah. And when you look at the things … when you look at the murder of Trayvon Martin, when you look at the murder of Michael Brown, when you look at those situations, it’s not unrelated to Obama being president, but it’s more the way in which the country has reframed itself or rewritten itself since his election, with all kinds of people saying to themselves, maybe never putting it into words, just feeling it, “There’s a f*cking n—er in the White House? Well f*ck you, n—er, whoever you are.” And an inchoate loathing and hatred that seeks out its targets.
I’m not a psychiatrist, I haven’t sat down and interviewed George Zimmerman or the cop who shot Michael Brown, I don’t know what their motives are, I don’t know what kind of people they are, what kind of childhood traumas they have experienced. But I don’t think it’s nuts that in a certain way, when that cop killed Michael Brown, and when George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, they were killing Barack Obama.
EXIT COMMENT TO MOONBAT AUTHOR … It would appear that a majority of Americans think Barack Obama is a failure, many of which most likely voted for him in 2008 and 2012. Even USA Today’s Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page stated over the weekend on “Face the nation’ that “a lot of Americans have that the world is not only a dangerous place but that government is not competent to handle it. […] I think that is a very dangerous thing for President Obama. The sense that his administration is not competent to protect the American people that is the most fundamental job of a US president. I think it is a big factor in the midterm elections.”
