He'll be back in court before too long. He's got a real mental problem.
Like last week's story that he "happened upon a rollover crash in Sanford and was being touted as a hero", this week's "traffic stop in Texas story" is full of holes, too.

No cop would pull someone over "on a suspicion" they were speeding....how does that even make sense? Either he was (speeding), or he wasn't (speeding). There's no grey area here.

Then, we have a cop who tells him "not to play with his gun" while he goes back to his patrol car to check for any outstanding warrants. That would never happen in the real world.

Then we have the usual attorney statement that "he wasn't aware of this incident" but similar to the roll-over story of last week, "he doesn't have any reason to believe it's not true".

The we have the usual comment from brother Zimmerman, that "speculation as to any family members' whereabouts - either by the press, or by individuals - is irresponsible and counterproductive." (oh, sure...pardon me while I laugh).

Then, just as in last week's flop of a story about the people "saved" by Zimmerman in the "gentle roll-over" who cancelled a press conference, we now have "the city manager repeatedly declined to identify the officer involved in the traffic stop."

What's it going to be next week? "Zimmerman solves mystery of Dealy Plaza and the grassy knoll"?

Whoever is in charge of his "rehabilitation PR campaign" is doing a lousy job.

And just when I thought it was "safe" to go shopping in Sanford again..........just sayin').

Texas is not Florida, Texas has mandatory roadside inspections and other means for highway stops that begin with (suspicion of."

I've been through the I-10 stops in El Paso and Beaumont and they don't want to hear about your stupid azz civil liberties as the drug dog is sniffing your crotch. And if it late at night the troopers shine gigantic MagLites in your eyes while asking various stupid questions such as where ya goin.

It's my belief that George and Shellie drove out there for a big money TV interview, one that Mark O'Mara did not negotiate for them. My guess is Dr. Phil who has already interviewed George's BFF the air marshal.

George was likely out sightseeing while Shellie was in some high buck spa or out shopping for TV clothes with a producer, just like George Anthony did when he was in Texas for an interview.

Perhaps that is the real reason Trayvon Martin is NOT breathing, not from the shot but from the two tons of fat from his girlfriend.

I think GZ deserves a cruise......perhaps he was lying when he told the officer he didn't know where he was headed and he was on his way to Galveston to take a Cancun cruise on the recently refurbished Carnival Triumph!

Forney, Tx is close to Dallas/The Metroplex, not Galveston, Tx...but you wouldn't know that because you are from Red Deer. On a cruise, G-Dogg would foul all the toilets and eat all the food intended for everyone. Then he would go to look on one side and cause the whole ship to capsize.

Are you kidding? After George's acquittal he gave his wife the cold shoulder, didn't even acknowledge her. and instead he flashes a take-me-I'm-yours-baby smile at that legal assistant what's-her-name!

A future episide will certainly be George Zimmerman Goes to Divorce Court.

The writing's on the wall!

Maybe it's the home-wrecking floozy who he was meeting up with to go on that Cancun cruise?

Well, Ms. NDisgrase, again, you are wrong. The police officer made a traffic stop and decided to issue a warning rather than a traffic ticket this is something that is done hundreds of times a day. Zimmerman informed the police officer that he had a legal concealed gun which is a smart thing to do. I, also, have a CCW and have told several police officers about my gun when interacting with them. The average police officer would rather know of the presence of a gun than have to spot it by himself.

As far as you not shopping in Sanford, I am sure that they can get along very well without your stamps.

I don't know about Texas cops, but I do know that no cop anywhere would leave a 'suspect'(GA's favorite word) in a car with a weapon while he (the cop) went back to his patrol car to check out possible warrants, even if the 'suspect' showed him a current concealed weapons permit.

Safety (the cop's), first.

And that little comment made by the cop, which can be clearly heard in the dash-cam video..."What a coincidence"....makes no sense unless the unrelated person driving the car only shared the same name as the real George Zimmerman, acquitted child killer, from Sanford, Fl.

Texas troopers are always on the look out for illegals and drugs. The cop finally ID'd George as a white male.
I doubt that George is traveling alone although it was reported that he was alone when pulled over. He's out there for a reason and he's driving because it's far safer than going through an airport.
And by God if a Texas State Trooper says you're white...you're white!
LOL. Ain't it the truth.

He can't fly, they won't let him carry on a plane. Black passengers would not be safe.
