Thank You George for your service of good deeds to the residents of Sanford, Fl.

YES, doesn't matter my thoughts. What does matter is for you to realize, the next 48 hours the country will be in a state of worship.
Hero's such as George do not just pop up everyday.

Why not show some pride !!! Head on out to Home Depot and get some supplies, so that you can erect an altar in your home, for our Mighty and Fearless leader. GEORGE ZIMMERMAN.

The city of Sanford should get clued in, and start laying the ground work for a statue of GEORGE, to be erected in the center of town.

The State, in association with the Feds, are now in the process of taking bi-sexual Zimmy's guns away for life! They already took them away in the literal and physical sense (Read the Search Warrant).

The official Search Warrant was released today. The government recovered 5 guns at Zimmy's temporary, free-loading crash pad. Furthermore, any Domestic Violence conviction, misdemeanor or felony, will accomplish this necessity of taking guns away from a suicidal, bi-sexual nut-bag. Bye Georgie Boy.

Any Citizen is granted the authority to possess a firearm. Without a criminal record,and without mental illness,gimmie my gun.

Zimmerman at this stage of his life, does not have any Felony, or Domestic Violence record on file.

If Zimmerman were guilty of the charges as of this date, then there would not be a trial date of January 7,2014 set to hear the matter.

The facts are it is a He Said/She said.
No injuries to either party.
No resisting arrest charges.
No assault/battery charges.

In any Domestic arrest weapons are always removed.

Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you blurt out more stupid stuff!!!!!

Deputies find five guns in George Zimmerman's bag, search warrant reveals

Seminole County deputies found five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition in the home George Zimmerman shared with his girlfriend, where he was arrested last week, accused of domestic violence.

By Rene Stutzman and Jeff Weiner, Orlando Sentinel
11:06 a.m. EST, November 26, 2013

Seminole County deputies found five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition in the home George Zimmerman shared with his girlfriend, where he was arrested last week, accused of domestic violence.

A search warrant made public today shows that he had the weapon that his then-live-in girlfriend said he had used to threaten her: a high-capacity, high-tech 12-gauge shotgun.

He also had a semiautomatic assault rifle – an AR15 - and three handguns.

The 30-year-old Zimmerman was arrested Nov. 18, accused of aggravated assault, domestic violence battery and criminal mischief.

His girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, accuses him of pointing the shotgun at her after she asked him to move out.

She says he also used it to break a glass table then shoved her out of the house and locked and barricaded the door.

Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail, living – once again – in hiding.

He says he did nothing illegal and has entered a written plea of not guilty. His attorney, Jayne Weintraub, was not available for comment.

According to the search warrant, Zimmerman talked to deputies after he was taken into custody. He told them that he and Scheibe had lived together since Aug. 23, that she was pregnant with his child and that they had agreed earlier that day to separate.

He said his plan was to move to Texas, according to the warrant.

He told deputies that as he was packing, Scheibe began to throw his belongings around the house, including two of his guns, the shotgun and one of the handguns.
In a recorded phone call with a dispatcher, he said he had not pointed a gun at her. He told deputies in his face-to-face interview that he had not touched or pushed her, according to the warrant.

He also told deputies that he had recorded the argument on his cell phone. Deputies seized two, a black Apple iPhone and a Blackberry.

But his claim of having recorded what happened does not mesh with paperwork filed by his lawyer last week. In it, Zimmerman asked for the return of both of those phones, alleging they had no evidence related to the case.

Deputies got the warrant, suspecting that Zimmerman had locked away the shotgun after the confrontation but before deputies unlocked the door and pushed their way inside.

Deputies found the guns in a black soft-sided case secured with a combination lock, according to the warrant.

Here are the firearms they found: the KelTec 12-gauge shotgun, a pump-action high-tech,$1,200 self-defense weapon with more than double the capacity of conventional shotguns; the assault rifle; a .380-caliber handgun; a 9mm handgun and a Glock 19 handgun.

They also found more than 100 rounds of ammunition. The greatest quantity - 59 rounds – was for the rifle, according to the warrant.

The shotgun is noteworthy because it is compact and has the capacity to do so much damage so quickly. It holds 13 rounds, far more than a conventional shotgun, which holds three to five.

Zimmerman also had a shoulder strap for it, which would allow him to carry an additional 15 rounds, according to the warrant.

It appears to be the same model about which Zimmerman was reported by TMZ to have asked questions while touring KelTec's Cocoa manufacturing plant in August.

His estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, in a recent appearance on the Katie Couric show, said Zimmerman had become fascinated by guns.

His arrest last week came two months after he was handcuffed by Lake Mary police then released after his estranged wife and her father accused him of threatening them with a gun as they were moving furniture out of the home they had shared.

In that case, Zimmerman said he had no gun during the confrontation. Scheibe, who was outside in his truck, told police there were guns in the truck.

Zimmerman is the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer acquitted in July of second-degree murder for shooting Trayvon Martin, a black 17-year-old Feb. 26, 2012.

Zimmerman told police in that case that he had acted in self-defense.

According to Seminole County Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma, Scheibe told deputies that she is not pregnant.

There are both assault and battery charges pending against your hero.

Fortunately, the judge doesn't agree with you and the coward Zimmerman is forbidden to have possession of a firearm.

The women and unarmed black boys of north central Florida are safer tonight.

Thank you judge.

Jury convicts Okla. cop in death of unarmed teen

By Associated Press,
Last Updated: Tuesday, November 26, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY --
(AP) An Oklahoma jury Tuesday convicted a veteran police captain of first-degree manslaughter in the death of an unarmed teenager who was running away after scuffling with the officer.

Del City Police Capt. Randy Trent Harrison shot Dane Scott Jr. in the back on March 14, 2012, following a high-speed chase that began when Harrison tried to pull over Scott's car.

Harrison had previously arrested Scott on drug violations, and prosecutors said his pursuit of the teenager crossed the line from professional to personal. The defense portrayed Scott as a drug dealer and said Harrison believed the teen was reaching for a second weapon after the officer took one gun from him during a scuffle that followed the police chase.

The jury announced the verdict and recommended the minimum four-year prison sentence after deliberating for about 11 hours over two days.

Harrison showed no emotion when the verdict was read. He was handcuffed by sheriff's deputies and led to the Oklahoma County jail.

Scott's family wept and hugged one another after the verdict was read. The family said nothing to reporters outside the courtroom.

The shooting occurred just a few weeks after the death of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida, and the defense suggested early on that prosecutors were influenced to file charges to prevent the type of racial discord that followed that shooting and another high-profile case in Tulsa last year. Harrison is white; Scott was black.

Prosecutors haven't said Harrison was motivated by any racial bias, just that Harrison was wrong to shoot Scott. The jury included three African-Americans.

Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater became emotional after the verdict was announced as he talked to reporters. "There are no winners here," he said.

"We will police our own," Prater said. "This is a tough case. It had to be done."

Defense attorney Doug Friesen said he will ask the judge to allow Harrison to remain free while his conviction is appealed. "I am sorry for Randy, for the way this came out," Friesen said. "I wish I could have done a better job."

During the trial, Scott's baggy pants became a central issue. Witnesses say the 18-year-old was trying to hold them up as he ran from Harrison. Although the witnesses testified that they saw no threat from Scott, Harrison and his defense team said the officer believed he was reaching for his pants pocket, where he could have had another gun. Police did not find a weapon on Scott after the shooting.

Prater told jurors during closing arguments Monday that Harrison put other people in danger when he fired four shots at Scott, placing bystanders and a fellow officer in harm's way before hitting the teenager in the back with the fourth shot.

Prater said Scott was "no threat at all" at the time. "He's running and holding his pants," the prosecutor added.

Harrison, a 23-year veteran officer in the Oklahoma City suburb, testified earlier Monday that he feared for his life.

"He had just tried to kill me. He would kill anybody to escape," Harrison testified. Harrison said he did not want to kill Scott. "I just didn't have any other choice," he said.

Friesen told jurors that while prosecutors had tried to portray Harrison as "an out-of-control maniac," he was actually trying to protect his life and the lives of others.

Another police officer was running about 10 to 15 feet behind Scott and had just shot him with a Taser when Harrison fired the fatal shot, according to an affidavit.

The officer who used the Taser said he didn't see the teen with another weapon. Another witness said it appeared Scott was raising his hands, as if to surrender, when he was shot.

According to police, Scott had previous convictions in juvenile court on misdemeanor drug charges and a pending felony case of drug possession with intent to distribute.

Harrison had arrested Scott as he allegedly sold drugs near Del City High School in 2011. Court papers indicate Harrison also saw Scott allegedly selling marijuana from his home. Scott allegedly was selling drugs to a passenger in his car before the pursuit that led to the shooting.

The charges against Harrison were filed just after two white men were accused of fatally shooting three black people in Tulsa in what prosecutors said were racially motivated attacks.

Turns out he had barricaded the door to give himself time to hide the shotgun he threatened her with. He locked it away in a safe. Cops outsmarted him and got the warrant.

Maybe even LE is tired of this POS getting by with woman beating and murder.

George and Guilt

Orlando, FL

#80334 Nov 26, 2013
Yes after thinking about the recent incident with George long and hard I have come to the belief a crime was committed here.

The police recovered 5 guns and 100 rounds of ammunition.

That is the CRIME. George should of had no less than 47 Firearms. Yeah, it should also be a crime for only having 20 rounds per 5 guns = 100 rounds. Is he being Serious.

Each of those 5 guns need at least 1000 rounds per gun. So the crime George committed, was he only had 100 rounds versus what he should of had was 5000 rounds. Thats the guilt on that one.

The other crime of guilt is, George should of been in possession of at least 47 firearm's, that would avail itself to 22 caliber,38,44,357,10mm,40,45 and 410,16 and 20 gauge etc. Only 5 guns?? That's a Crime. Needs minimum 47!

For the Hero, it shall be considered a CRIME to plead guilty and a CRIME to have Only! 5 guns in his possession.

Sure hope he never makes the two mistakes outlined above, EVER !!!!
