“Steve Bracknell is the chief of the Lake Mary police department, which is investigating Zimmerman, 29, for allegedly threatening his estranged wife, Shellie, and his father-in-law with a gun on Monday. In an email exchange with a Lake Mary resident critical of the department’s initial decision not to arrest or charge Zimmerman, Bracknell appears to agree with the writer’s description of Zimmerman, acquitted in July of murdering Martin, an unarmed black teenager, as “a ticking time bomb.” So reports guardian.com which, along with dailymail.co.uk, manages to cover US news better than most US news orgs. Anyway, the full email exchange is here. The Lake Mary PD is deciding whether or not to charge Georgie in the he-said-she-said incident involving the soon-to-be-former Mrs. Zimmerman. Judging from the chief’s expressed desire to be rid of GZ, it seems a safe bet George will skate. Would you want that kind of media circus in your jurisdiction if you could avoid it?
