George Zimmerman is back in the news again after allegedly pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend in her home in Florida. You may remember George, who was charged with the murder of Trayvon Martin and was found not guilty after using a strict “self defense” claim in court (and NOT any claim of standing his ground, despite the many media reports to that effect). According to CNN . . .
George Zimmerman was charged Monday with aggravated assault, domestic violence battery and criminal mischief, after an incident at his girlfriend’s home in central Florida, said Dennis Lemma, chief deputy with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
Zimmerman, who was acquitted earlier this year of murdering teenager Trayvon Martin, was arrested Monday after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend, a spokesman for the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said.
Zimmerman has been in the media multiple times recently as the media has hounded him since his acquittal, reporting on every parking ticket and traffic violation as Zimmerman tries to move on with his life after the media crucified him and the courts failed to find any scrap of evidence to support the wails of the public for his head on a platter.
Earlier this year Zimmerman was involved with a heated discussion with his ex-wife and police were called to the scene when the ex in question said that Zimmerman pointed a gun at them, only to find that Zimmerman didn’t even have a gun at the time and the ex-wife was simply pissed off and trying to hurt George. It is entirely possible that this new incident is in that same vein, a pissed off lover using George’s well-known past to try and hurt him, but we’ll reserve judgement until all the facts are known.
Needless to say, the mainstream media will be eating this up.
