It wasn't long after he was famously acquitted of 2nd degree murder after stalking, attacking and shooting teenager Trayvon Martin in July of 2013 that he was detained by Lake Mary Florida police for domestic battery and threatening his estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman and her father with a gun.
Zimmerman made headlines last week when police questioned him after a 35-year-old driver named Matthew Apperson claims he left work to get a cup of coffee when a Honda SUV driven by Zimmerman followed his car then pulled up alongside his driver's side window and the two passengers inside confronted him.
According to a transcript of Apperson's 911 call: "I then rolled my window down and there was a passenger going, 'Hey, what's your problem? Why are you shaking your finger?' I said 'Excuse me? I was in my car rapping to myself with my windows up.' And I looked over and George Zimmerman was the driver. And they were threatening to kick my ass and shoot me."
Apperson (who is white by the way) then pulled in to a Circle K gas station to call police and the truck followed him, but drove off before police arrived. Two days later Apperson was at work when he saw Zimmerman in the truck sitting outside, he called 911 again and that's when police arrived and stopped and questioned Zimmerman.
As you can see from the dash camera photo in the police car above, Zimmerman had a handgun in his waist band when police stopped him to ask why he was in the parking lot of Apperson's place of work. The guy is clearly confrontational with strangers, prone to violence and is still allowed to openly carry guns in public - why's he still on the street? What would have happened if Apperson hadn't called 911?
Wasn't it painfully clear that Zimmerman has serious problems when he stalked an innocent teenager, confronted him and eventually shot him? Maybe the race of his victim blinded the jury to who he really is.
It's like Zimmerman is wandering around in this bizarre parallel reality defined by paranoia and rage but the justice system doesn't really want to stop him because that would mean he really was guilty of 2nd degree murder when he shot Trayvon Martin. Arresting Zimmerman would be admitting the system failed the Martin family.
So the ticking time bomb that is George Zimmerman is still driving around - armed with a loaded gun looking for the next innocent person that is looking at him the wrong way.
When he kills another innocent victim the blood will be on the jury's hands because they could have put him in jail where he belongs when they had the chance and the evidence was overwhelming.
Oh and speaking of injustice...
accused her of being a prostitute and Lucas of being a John.
The officers handcuffed her, then put her in the back of a police car because she was so upset she refused to show them her ID.
According to Variety Watts posted a picture her boyfriend took of herself in tears while in handcuffs as an LAPD officer talks to her on Facebook - according to the Variety article:
"An LAPD public information officer said there was no record of the incident as Watts wasn’t arrested or brought into the station for questioning."
Of course she wasn't, because she's a professional actress, not a hooker. And it's not surprising that there's no official record of the humiliation she was subjected to.
That kind of policing in America is policy but always officially off the record.
