If I am not mistaken, Zimmer tried to become a cop, but he was rejected probably because of that prior arrest

<quoted text> You claimed Trayvon had no previous record of illegal activity. It is a proven lie. You claimed Trayvon didn't do drugs. A proven lie. Not only did he do drugs but manufactured and provide drugs to minors. You claimed he was not a thug. A proven lie. By his own text messages he was a "gangsta". You claimed George attacked first. You have absolutely to proof to back that claim.(If you did the state of Florida wants to speak to you). You claim the police operator was a cop and issued a lawful order "not to follow". Once again a proven lie. I could go on and on but I don't want arthritis. You have been proven wrong and a liar for over a year now, aren't you about tired of being proven over and over to be a lying fool?
Some people are so blinded by their racism, they don't see how stupid they look. Zimmerman would be dead today if he didn't have a gun.

An innocent man may be charged because his counsel and the corrupt judicial system may use him for political gains.

Google. Are you surprised that a violent, child molesting, domestic abuser would not pass the pysch eval? Zimmerman is the exact opposite of what you would want in a cop!

I don't think he got that far in the process. I think they saw his arrest record and disqualified him
It was his credit history, at least that's what Opie wanted redacted, he's a deadbeat. Of course being a deadbeat doesn't make someone a liar...unless they're on the phone with a creditor.

George once quit a job in order to avoid a wage garnishment.

All the gun talk with the FDLE expert was BS, George admitted that he shot the "suspect." The forensics, bullet path etc. might play a role at some point however.

Correct
Zimmerman should have never been charged
He likely would have been charged and arrested in Virginia which has yet to adopt SYG.

In spite if what you've learned on topix, the fuss began because George was not arrested that evening but treated as a friend of law enforcement even though law enforcement had no clue who the dead guy was. Provoking a use of force is a bullsht excuse.

If George had been arrested and booked on some charge, he would have been forced to lawyer up and shut up...Sanford PD would have been forced to do a thorough investigation.

I don't think there is any evidence of child molesting, but from the looks of his wife, a case for bestiality can be made
Testimony from the victim, Zimmerman's cousin, states she was molested by zimmermanover a period of ten years, from age six to sixteen.

Donald O'Brien, the HOA president, testified that the police did not do regular patrols of the area due to the lack of a written agreement between the HOA and the police department (private property). O'Brian testified that construction workers in the neighborhood had followed a burglary suspect in the past, resulting in an arrest, and that he had sent out a congratulatory email. Hmm. No complaints about following before. In fact a pat on the back was in order. Of course what thug is stupid enough to jump a bunch of construction workers, thug might get a broke neck.
That's not the entire story Tracy, are you lying again or simply learning challenged?

The stucco worker(s) spotted a person they had previously seen burglarizing a home "during daylight hours" then followed him from a distance "during daylight hours" then reported his location to law enforcement who arrested the young man who actually lived inside the community. I should mention that the stucco workers were present because the community was just being completed at that time.

O'Brien also talked about the parking problems and then about how he didn't think the community really needed a Neighborhood Watch program. Perhaps he didn't see The Retreat as a crime ridden hell hole, odd that none of the residents near the site of the shooting site did either.

They would have called the CA at home and put the ball in his court. The CA would see the potential for accusations of racial bias and the political fallout. The CA would have him charged with Voluntary Manslaughter and then go on to lose it in court
If that same action had been taken in this case...it would have never become a national obsession and George and Shellie might be at home today gnawing on their third pork chop.

George needed an attorney 5 seconds after he pulled the trigger, only a fn moron would argue that. His bff Mark gave George sht advice.

Maybe if he had broken into some houses and cars, he would have been able to pay his bills, improve his credit, and become a real cop
Maybe if his aunt had balls she'd be his uncle?

Zimmerman is a sociopath, not once has he shown remorse or has expressed regret for having snuffed out a young life. After all he could have shot him the shoulder or leg it's not like he could have missed from point blank!!

I am not saying it's right but it is fact
What has happened is a turning point in American history has occurred. Caused by our government. Now and forever more and more people will purchase weapons for self defense. It will be ingrained in us now as we have seen the government of the United States forget the people that are the backbone of America. To honestly believe that we must watch our family, friends and others to keep being assaulted and killed with malice as a government kowtows to a group of people bent on self destruction mainly because the successful in the group think with their heritage and not with sense has now put most on notice that his is survival time. It will only get worse now. Oh, people will be congenial and all the rest. But if before there was sadness and compassion in riots, there won't be anymore. Tipping points have occurred. You can not have equality while staying separate. And it is not the white folks who are staying separate. Integration means civility. Assimilation should have occurred and instead we got political correctness that favors groups that can do no wrong except to themselves or if they go to far. And you see the results. We rebuilt parts of the world with a pittance to what we spent on social and economic justice. The forced guilt is gone. the new austere era is upon us with a heavy dose of Homeland Security totalitarian rule. And someday soon one of them will replace a Zimmerman and there will be no questions, no threats of violence, and no payouts. Just obedience...or else!

Sanford is not the only agency in the area. A whole bunch of departments in that area have been hiring and they were all BEGGING for people before Bush's economic meltdown in 2007. Police departments were taking any minimally qualified body that came through the door
And tell me, do they prefer trained or non trained applicants?
