George Zimmerman Charged With Aggravated Assault
by Eyder Peralta November 18, 2013 5:30 PM

George Zimmerman, the former Neighborhood Watch volunteer acquitted in the killing of Trayvon Martin, for allegedly pointing a gun at his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, during a domestic dispute on Monday.

"Zimmerman then pushed her out of the home and barricaded the door with furniture. When deputies responded and went into the home, Zimmerman was there and was not armed. He was arrested and booked, said Dennis Lemma of the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

Zimmerman has been charged with aggravated assault, battery domestic violence and criminal mischief. He offered no resistance when he was taken into custody.

'As customary for domestic violence cases, he is currently held under a no-bond status and he will see the judge tomorrow morning,' Lemma said.

George garnered national attention because he shot and killed an unarmed teenager. He said it was self defense, while prosecutors argued Zimmerman was an overzealous Neighborhood Watch volunteer who racially profiled Martin.

Since the acquittal, Zimmerman has had several run-ins with law enforcement. He was stopped for speeding in Texas about two weeks after his acquittal, and pulled over twice more in Florida (once for speeding and once for overly tinted windows and improperly displayed tags) over the next few months. And in September, police were called to the home of his estranged wife, Shellie, after she told a police dispatcher that he threatened her with a gun.

They got what they needed-a bunch of unthinking puppets that go around and do their work for them. Brainless morons. It won't be enough to nail this guy for what he has already done.

can you imagine being sucker punched by a suspicious character, falling to the ground, having your brains beat in and acting in justified self defense accidentally killing your attacker and then being vilified by a media and country that didn't witness it, being found INNOCENT by a jury of your peers and to then continue to be bullied??? No wonder his marriage fell apart and no wonder he is now acting a bit strange. I pity the man and can only hope that those who convicted him in their hearts for no other reason than their own prejudices will someday find themselves at the mercy of a media preferred attack and thus on the wrong end of prejudice.

George surely would have found more peace if he had let the No_limit_nigga (tray's twitter handle) beat him to death. Would hardly have made the news

Can you imagine your child being murdered in a high profile case and one of the jurors, whose husband was an attorney, had decided to write a book and went so far as to refer to the murderer in an intimate manner? Or to wake up and find that the Koch brothers minions spent all of their time on line demonizing your Honor roll college bound child for a law? Knowing in advance that these people didn't give a rats ass about anything but the guns that weren't being taken away?
