And that is some reporting.Shellie Zimmerman told 911 Monday that he had threatened her and her father with a weapon.
On the 911 call, Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce last week, is breathing heavily when she tells a dispatcher that Zimmerman is still at the house.
"He's in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun, and he's saying,'Step closer.' He's just threatening all of us with his firearm," she says.
Shellie Zimmerman also tells 911 that George Zimmerman punched her father in the nose, then smashed her iPad before getting in his truck.
"I don't know what he's capable of. I'm really, really scared," she says.
That is some hero!
The first report I read about the Martin case was that Zimmerman chased Martin down, Martin defended himself, and Zim shot him. That was it.
As time went by, it turned out none of it was true. Zimmerman didn't hunt Martin down, he only chased him for a few seconds and stopped. Martin had way more than enough time to return to the house he was staying at, but decided to wait in the dark until he attacked Zimmerman. Zimmerman didn't escape without any injury, he had multiple injuries and was held down against his will while being beaten. Zimmerman didn't use his gun willy-nilly, he used his firearm in defense as a last resort when Martin tried to disarm him.
First reports are always misleading and designed to sell papers and get people drawn to their internet site. When things calm down, that's when you get the real story.
So let's give this story a rest for a few days until further developments surface. I'm willing to bet that at least half of the story is not true or twisted in some way.
