Gun Rights Hero George Zimmerman Back in the News


Huffington Post

George Zimmerman is in legal trouble again.

WSVN reports that his latest brush with the law came on Tuesday when Zimmerman allegedly threatened to kill a man during a road rage incident in Lake Mary, Florida.

The man, whose name has not been reported, also told police Zimmerman was waiting for him at his work.

Zimmerman allegedly admitted to police that he had an altercation with the man, but he won't face legal action because the man has declined to press charges.

That's exactly how Zimmerman escaped his last two legal battles.

In December, Zimmerman's girlfriend declined to press charges after she initially claimed he pointed a shotgun at her face during an argument last November.

In September of last year, Zimmerman's ex-wife also declined to proceed with a case against her former husband after she claimed he threatened her and her father with a gun.

In July of 2013, Zimmerman was found not guilty in the killing of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.


  1. He won't be stopped until someone is willing to press charges against him. Given the process one would have to go through and making Zimmerman an enemy, it's not all that hard to understand why people are reluctant. When this guy found out it was Zimmerman he ran as fast as he could to avoid any dealings with him.

  2. "George Zimmerman was the driver, and they were threatening to kick my ass and to shoot me," Apperson told a police dispatcher in a 911 call.
    Apperson told the dispatcher that he pulled into a nearby gas station to use the phone since he didn't have his cellphone, and the truck followed him. Zimmerman drove the truck up to Apperson's car, blocking him in, Apperson said."

    "Apperson called police from the gas station, but the truck was gone by the time officers arrived. Apperson, who has a concealed-weapons license, was carrying a firearm at the time, according to the police report."

    First thing I'd look for is video cameras at each of the locations which would at least provide some support for either story. This does seem to be the scenario oft spoken of by those disapproving of concealed carry. Your stereotypical altercation, likely over someone's driving turning into a wild west gunfight.
    But here we have two permit holders having a disagreement with no mention of even a drawn firearm. And there being no witnesses, its one's word against the other's. Even at the altercation with his soon to be ex-wife there was even video, though the wife actually admitted to the police that she wasn't truthful with the 911 operator and both her and her father declined to press charges.
    George needs to go to school and become an accountant or something for the next ten or twenty years, or maybe an attorney.

  3. Update:

    1. Thanks I posted that one. But I was wondering how do you think the media gets the video? Is the police officer allowed to turn the video over to the news media? That doesn't seem right.

    2. Since it was a police video I believe the police must have allowed the media to use it.
      The original story had the victim name as anon., but now his name has been made public. I hope he does intend to file a charge against Zim., but the original story said he will not.
      It's laughable how the gun loons infer all these run ins Zim has are just made up and false by supposed anti gun people, to get Zim in trouble.

  4. Gun Rights Hero George Zimmerman . . .

    So, Mikeb, have you any examples of gun rights advocates hailing Zimmerman as a "hero," or is this just that special Mikeb brand of "honesty"?
