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.”
Lake Mary, Florida Police Say George Zimmerman Threatened to Kill a Man in Road Rage Incident, No Charges Pressed Against Zimmerman
YET ANOTHER GEORGE ZIMMERMAN SIGHTING … ZIMMERMAN MAKING NEWS AGAIN.
As reported at WKMG Local 6, the Lake Mary, FL police stated that George Zimmerman, yes, that same George Zimmerman, threatened to kill a man in a road rage incident that occurred on Tuesday, September 9. The individual called 911. Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said the man, whose name was not released, recognized the driver of the truck as George Zimmerman. The man said Zimmerman, who was carrying a gun, asked, “Do you know who I am?” before saying, “I’ll (f***ing) kill you.” Two days later, the same man called 911 again and said that he saw Zimmerman in his truck outside his work. According to accounts, Zimmerman acknowledged to police officers that he had exchanged words with the man the previous day. The man declined to press charges. If the man felt threatened, not really sure why he did not want to press charges.
The road rage incident happened Tuesday, Lake Mary police told Local 6, but the other driver declined to press charges, so Zimmerman was not arrested.
Police said the man, whose name was not released, called police after a truck pulled up next to him and the driver yelled, “Why are you pointing a finger at me?”
The man pulled into the Circle K at 4410 W. Lake Mary Blvd. to call 911, according to police, who added that driver followed him into the parking lot but took off before police arrived.
Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said the man recognized the truck driver as Zimmerman. The man said Zimmerman, who was carrying a gun, asked, “Do you know who I am?” before saying, “I’ll (f***ing) kill you.”
Two days later, the man said he saw Zimmerman in his truck outside his workplace. He called police but declined to press charges.
He’s Back … George Zimmerman Seen Patrolling Pompano Pat’s Gun Store After Recent Robbery in Deland, FL
George Zimmerman, the volunteer neighborhood watchman who was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin was back to patrolling ways in a Volusia County, FL. According to a police report, two officers spotted a suspicious, dark-colored truck parked behind Pompano Pat’s early Sunday, shortly after midnight. The occupant of the truck turned out to be George Zimmerman. The all too often in the news following his murder trail Zimmerman told the police officers he had permission to be there from the store’s owner to provide security and keep an eye on the business after a recent robbery. However, the owner of Pompano Pat’s gun store denies having hired Zimmerman.
The manager of Pompano Pat’s, a motorcycle and gun store in DeLand, said Tuesday that Zimmerman was never hired to provide security, despite Zimmerman’s claims to DeLand police.
Store owner Pat Johnson says he’s getting death threats because of Zimmerman’s claim, and it’s not the first time. Last year, Johnson received threats after offering to replace Zimmerman’s gun shortly after Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
Although he’s not a hired security officer, George Zimmerman has been “patrolling” outside a Volusia County gun shop after it was recently robbed, according to the store owner.
Pat Johnson told Local 6 that Zimmerman is not an employee of his DeLand store Pompano Pat’s, which sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.
Johnson said that Zimmerman, on his own accord, has been spotted outside the store since the robbery earlier this month. The thieves stole rifles worth up to $5,000 and two mini-bikes, according to Johnson.
“I didn’t OK it. I didn’t know about it. I didn’t authorize it. I didn’t pay for it,” Johnson said. “He had just watched Facebook and the news and just took it upon himself to come up here and sit.”
Johnson added that although he knows Zimmerman, he has not hired him as a security officer.
GEORGE … PLEASE, FADE AWAY INTO OBSCURITY.
One Year After George Zimmerman Acquittal in Death of Trayvon Martin, The Defense’s ‘Train Wreck’ Star Witness Rachel Jeantel Speaks Out
It was one year ago on July 13, 2013 that George Zimmerman was found not guilty in the death of Trayvon Martin and the defense’s star witness, let’s rephrase that, train wreck witness Rachel Jeantel speaks out. In an interview with CNN, Jeantel discusses her regrets that she could have said things and acted differently while on the witness stand. She played the victim and blamed the jury for not taking her seriously. Jeantel said, “they judge how they talk, how they look, how they dress.” Jeantel was upset because she felt like she was being judged. ARE YOU KIDDING? Rachel dear, you were a witness in a murder trial. It was the jury’s job to determine whether you were telling the truth and your combative actions and the testimony that Martin told her he was being chased by a “creepy-ass cracker” was judged. Rachel, here is a free life lesson … we are all judged by our actions every day.
Jeantel was the prosecution’s star witness, yet her testimony was a combative, profanity-laced “train wreck” that likely contributed to Zimmerman’s acquittal.
Jeantel’s curt, colloquial language prompted attorneys to ask her to speak up and repeat herself time and again during the trial, eventually eliciting an exasperated, “Are you listening?” from Jeantel.
She told CNN this week that she wishes she had “acted different” on the witness stand.
We do hope that the experiences that Rachel Jeantel went through during the Zimmerman trial does turn her life around and makes her a better person. As stated in the video above, no one knew it at the time of her testimony, but “she was barely able to read and write at the level of a third grader. Whose fault is that exactly? We can blame public school and Rachel Jeantel as she resisted any efforts of tutoring because it took too long. However, it appears that she is trying to get her life together and has graduated high school. Good for her!
What happened to Rachel Jeantel was not a matter of a jury falsely judging a book by it’s cover. In 2013 when she took the witness stand Rachel’s book was her cover, no more, no less. Was she smart, no. Was she well versed, not on your life.
‘Creepy a** cracker is following me’
Rachel Jeantel Can’t Read Letter She ‘Wrote’ About Shooting: ‘I don’t read cursive’
Trayvon Trainwreck – Star Prosecuting Witness Implodes on the Stand – Rachel Jeantel
That is obvious, otherwise she would not have felt the need to change and better herself. People criticized her for her actions and the way she talked because they were horrified by your actions and speech that you thought nothing of. Personally, I blamed at the time the prosecutors more than I did Jeantel because I could never have imagined anyone thinking that she would be a good witness. More so, did they do any coaching?
We can only hope that something good comes from the George Zimmerman murder trail and maybe that is that Rachel Jeantel woke up, grew up and got her life on track.
- Zimmerman’s defense team had asked the names be held secret for 6 months after the verdict.
The Names of the Six Jurors who Acquitted George Zimmerman in the Death of Trayvon Martin Made Public
The six jurors in the George Zimmerman murder case better change their phone numbers to unlisted.
As reported in the Orlando Sentinel, the names of the six member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order. RUT-ROH, these folks are in for a world of unwanted phone calls and possible home visits. Hopefully, the order will be stayed so that the individuals could prepare for this.
The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show.
Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors’ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21.
Zimmerman’s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict. The judge set no timeline then, but noted in her new order they have been withheld more than eight months.
Attempts to reach the jurors by phone and in-person Thursday were unsuccessful.
The Left & Blacks Become Unhinged Over Lakers Kobe Bryant’s Comments on Trayvon Martin Case … He Doesn’t Support Defending Someone Just Because They are Black
The NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant is about to feel the wrath of what happens when you do not go along with the “black/left” company line …
In an interview with The New Yorker, Kobe Bryant discussed his reaction to when members of the Miami Heat wore “hoodies” in Trayvon Martin’s memory saying he admitted he’s not comfortable with the idea of being compelled to defend someone just because they’re black. Trayvon Martin was the black teen who was shot and killed by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman. After a long, divisive and contentious trial, Zimmerman was found “not guilty” of murder. Although the part of the interview that discusses the Trayvon Martin passages are only available to subscribers, the money lines were reprinted at The Blaze and Mediaite.
Discussing the divisive Trayvon Martin case in an interview with The New Yorker, NBA star Kobe Bryant said he doesn’t support defending someone just because they are black.
He appeared to be referring to the aftermath of the shooting death of Martin. Many people and political commentators seemingly rushed to assume George Zimmerman was guilty of murder before a trial ever occurred. One of the topics discussed was how members of the Miami Heat wore hoodies in Martin’s memory two years ago.
“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American. That argument doesn’t make any sense to me,” Bryant said. “So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”
Who knew Kobe Bryant was a racist? [sarcasm intended].
And the Left & Blacks expressed their outrage on Twitter for one black man’s opinion that color should not be the issue, the facts should. Hmm, you mean support for Trayvon was not racial solidarity, Really? It was a tragic set of events where two people should have never crossed paths, but everything about the George Zimmerman – Trayvon martin case was racial, down the the media doctoring 911 tapes and Zimmerman being referred to as a “white” Hispanic. And there is nothing racial when the Revs. Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson are on the scene. Add the NBPP as well putting a bounty on Zimmerman’s head. Yup, no racial solidarity before a JURY SPOKE WHAT-SO-EVER.
I guess if Barack Obama had a son, it would not be Kobe Bryant.
