“Police in DeLand report that two officers spotted (George) Zimmerman and his dog parked behind Pompano Pat’s, a motorcycle and gun store, on Sunday shortly after midnight and approached him,” dailymail.co.uk reports. “Zimmerman, who was acquitted last summer of the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, told officers that the owner had given him permission to be there to provide security after a recent burglary, according to the police report. No citations were issued because ‘There was no evidence to support that a crime had occurred or was about to occur,’ Officer Jessica Mayo wrote in the report.” Only one small problem . . .
Zimmerman ‘in no way, shape or form’ is employed by the store, Pompano Pat’s manager Sam Porter said on Tuesday.
‘He’s not being paid to be act as a security officer or in any other way for Pompano Pat’s,’ Porter said.
Porter confirmed that the store had a burglary about two weeks ago, with 10 rifles stolen. He said that internal store security was ‘beefed up’ after the incident, but that no after-hours security personnel were hired.
Which is not something you necessarily want to tell the press. Anyway, it seems George can’t help himself when it comes to helping others – whether they want his help or not. Which, at this point, is probably everyone. Just sayin’ . . .
