BREAKING: George Zimmerman Pulled Over in Texas Speeding, Carrying Gun in Vehicle

zimmerman1Just coming across my local news here in Texas, George Zimmerman was pulled over in Forney (just outside of Dallas) speeding and carrying a gun in his glove box.  Apparently the traffic stop happened on Sunday, but details were just released this afternoon.

Coming off his “not guilty” verdict of second degree murder in the killing of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman apparently couldn’t wait to get to Texas—so much so that he was pulled over for speeding.

Looking at the video of the traffic stop, Zimmerman seemed to be nervous and secretive about why he was in Texas and where he was going.

While it might show bad judgement for a man who so recently stood trial for possible second degree murder charges, his carrying of a gun in his vehicle is somewhat warranted following the extreme controversy regarding his shooting of 17 year old Trayvon Martin.

But to see him so quickly out of Florida, seemingly seeking to be very discrete when the officer asked where he was headed, only adds to the “shady” behavior that seems to follow this man.

Outside of the crime of exceeding the speed limit, Zimmerman broke no laws by having a gun in the glove box of his vehicle.

And while he has every right as a man who was acquitted of second degree murder to carry a gun, it just seems to show poor taste for a man who many feel killed Martin in cold blood to already have another weapon in his possession.  Even though any logical person, both his supporters and opponents, are well aware of the threats Zimmerman most likely faces following his trial.

But it’s understandable for many to feel his “shady” fleeing to Texas (apparently without telling anyone), with a gun in his possession, just further shows his lack of remorse for his actions and his total lack of empathy for taking a young man’s life.  And to be quite honest, the thought of George Zimmerman speeding up behind somebody on the freeway with a gun probably won’t put many Texas drivers at ease.
