There’s got to be a reason the Sanford, Florida police have been acting so strangely in the Trayvon Martin case: I think they’re about to be hit with a charge of gross malfeasance in the shooting death of Trayvon and they know it. And the shooter has them over a barrel.
George Zimmerman, the shooter, it appears has a get out of jail free card from the somebody or something in system for years now. He’s got a record of violence that would normally have prevented him from having a concealed weapon permit.
Get this: Zimmerman was arrested in 2005 in Orange County for resisting arrest with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer.
RESISTING ARREST WITH VIOLENCE AND BATTTERY?
They got to be kidding. But that’s what it says. This guy was arrested seven years ago for a violence on a cop and he’s walking around today with a gun in his hand?
Even Florida governor Jeb Bush said he doesn’t get it: A couple days ago he said of the case, “The lack of arrest doesn’t make sense to me.”
But wait, there’s more. Previous to attacking a cop, Zimmerman was also accused of domestic violence. In 2005 his fiancee’, beautician Veronica Zuazo, reported that Zimmerman had been physically violent with her on more than one occassion. She too put out a restraining order on him. That would be enough to get most guys thrown in the slammer and their ticket to carry yanked, no matter what she did to him in return. And guess what? In that same situation Zimmerman also took the victim stance as he did in the Trayvon shooting, claiming she had attacked him.
He said she slapped, clawed and tried to choke him. Her chihauhua bit him in the face. What was his face doing next tothe chihauhua unless she had him pnned like Trayvon did?
She went after him with a baseball bat.
She said he popped her in the mouth, more than once. Nice sweet Geroge Zimmerman gave his girlfriend a knuckle sandwich.
Florida requires a history of violence report for a carry permit that would have included, should have included, George’s a violent brush with the cops.
A domestic violence charge is all it takes for the law or the cops to demand surrender of your guns. Did Zimmerman have a concealed weapons permit in 2005, and if he did, was he required to turn in his pistol and any other guns he had? Or did he get yet another pass on that one to go alonside his get out of jail free card?
Then there’s the concealed weapons permit questionnaire. Did Zimmerman fill one of these out? Here’s some of the questions on the questionaire:
“Have you had adjudication of guilt withheld on any felony?” That could be a yes. I presume attacking a cop is a felony. But conviction was withheld when he entered a pretrial diversion program.
“Have you received a suspended sentence on any felony?” That could also be a yes.
Why isn’t anyone demanding that Zimmerman turn over his guns?
I smell dirty cops. There’s something strange going on here that the cops know and we don’t, something that keeps them from doing to him what they’d fall all over themselves to do to any one of us, something enough to make even the Sanford chief of police back down. Zimmerman’s got them over barrel with something or someone.
And now he’s on the run, armed and dangerous, and the cops are doing nothing about it.
Why? They got all they need to bring this guy in.
Watch out. My guess is he’ll use that 9mm again if he isn’t stopped.
