    Zimmerman in the news (and jail) again

    News outlets are reporting that George Zimmerman has been arrested again - this time for pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend during some kind of domestic spat. Felony arrest. I had wished this guy would just disappear but he keeps popping up. People are their own worst enemies.

    Oh great, let's see if this is actually true. Any of the coppers out there can tell us some tales of domestic calls that turn into pure vindictive fiction. If he actually did do this, then let the law investigate, then prove his offense in a court of law, not CNN.

    I said from day one the man was of weak character I feel then and now that he caused Martins death. I agreed there was not enough evidence against him but that does not change my miind about him. He is and was a dork, a loser, and just plain dumb. It is obvious by now the man can not handle any situation without a gun.

    It's stories like this that makes a confirmed bachelor like me glad I don't have problems like this.

    true, his ex wife also claimed that he pointed a gun at her, nothing came of it. she "decided not to press charges"

    It seems like every time people start to forget about him he does something else to put himself back in the spotlight. Unfortunately it usually isn't in a good light.

    LEO shows up and there is property damage it goes towards proving the individual has rage and violent tendencies which lead towards believing if the individual could be guilty of the charge.
    It won't be the first time somebodys G/F or Wife falsely accused them of DV,but this Idiot being under a microscope needs to learn when to walk away,but I don't think he has the ability to de-escalate a situation

    Yay this guy's again. I'll wait till there's some hard evidence he did or didn't do it. When people are in the spotlight or still in the glow of the spotlight, other people like to make allegations to see if they can get a settlement or arousal. Happens a bunch. Leave the dude out of the news.

    sure it might help prove that he threatened someone but it's not a crime in it self and does not warrant a separate charge.

    he does appear to not handle situations smartly but how would one walk away in ones home. he could of just been kicking her out, she could be falsely accusing him. domestic situations are messy, i wonder if she lives there.
