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.

    • Eva King

      Hell would be a better place for him.

      • Eva King

        Hell would be a better place for him. (But no one needs to help him on his journey. He’ll get there on his own soon enough!)

    • Bill Seat

      For what? Protecting himself against a Punk son of a cript druggie who was STUPID enough to try to kick a white dudes ass with a gun!??? you libs are as ignorant as they get!!!

      • Dana Seilhan

        What in blue hell is a cript? Do they not teach spelling in Right-Wing Wacko School? And who was stupid enough to follow Martin in the first place after being told not to?

      • Jampy Joe

        he probably watched “Colors” back in the ’80s and decided he knows all about gang culture now.

        what a tool.

      • Bill Seat

        NO just more about gangs than you boy! I was raised in the ghetto am in an interracial marriage and KNOW more travons than you EVER will!!! YOU are a ignorant punk ass fool!!!

      • Bill Seat

        AND your ignorance shows when that GZ was at his truck when HE was attacked!!!

      • silvie

        YOU are the ignorant one, you ass**** !!!! And very STUPID on top of it!

      • Mat Hill

        Irony… Calling someone ignorant one sentence after declaring that Zimmerman is white.

      • Bill Seat

        No mat, I’m calling YOU and travon ignorant because it was travon who thought he would beat a “CREEPY ASS CRACKER”!!!

      • HW

        Really? Just wondering if you know how to read. Or are you just here to antagonize the situation?

      • Sara

        You’re astonishingly ignorant. Forgive me if I don’t make sense at all, my mind is just so utterly boggled by your ignorance. I wasn’t aware it was possible for people to be so stupid. Let me help you out.
        George Zimmerman was an ignorant sob like you. He saw a black kid with his hood up and proceeded to judge him and deem him a criminal, immediately. (This is all based upon him having a hood up in the rain. Do you walk with your hood down in the rain?) Martin, doing what any individual would/should do, fled from the man who was, at the moment, stalking him. (Please, I’m just waiting for you to put your foot in it and say you don’t teach your children to runaway from a strange, unknown person that makes them feel frightened or uneasy.) Zimmerman (only a member of the neighborhood watch and NOT a police officer) felt he needed to pursue this person. (Inc. big run-on sentence because I’m getting lazy.) Now, considering how stupid you are, you might not turn to defend yourself from an assailant that is pursuing you without a cause that you’re aware of, but I sure as hell would. If some strange man or woman is chasing me down you better believe that if I feel I must turn around and defend myself, I damn sure will!!!

      • bobbie fischer

        sara, way to go what is it with these stupid ass people that dont get it i so agree with you . this case was on race and hoodie and the fact that george zimmerman want to be cop didn’t listen to what he was told not to do

      • David Fuller

        Defend yourself from what? There was no threat. Just a person following you and watching what you were doing. So why not just go home and forget about it? He was less than a hundred yards from his front door. If I felt “threaten” by someone that would be the most rational thing to do. Go home, lock the door and call the Police. Not sucker punch someone and start beating the crap out of them. That is the LAST thing I would do. Doing stupid shit like that gets a person killed no matter what race you happen to be.

      • Sara

        Have you not read/heard the 911 call? George was following him in the truck, and when Treyvon did exactly what anyone should do (take off running to try and get the heck out of there) Zimmerman got out of his car to pursue him on foot. If someone were stalking me from their car and when I ran away they got out to pursue me, I would assume that for some reason this person is after me. (Maybe he just wants to give me a hug right? I should stop to ask him and not assume his intentions are to hurt me.) I certainly wouldn’t lead him back to my home so he could take off and come back another night!!! You’re acting as if Treyvon should have known what Zimmerman was doing which is ridiculous. Assuming someone is harmless is how many, many people end up dead.

      • Matt

        there are people who are racist and listen to Zimmerman’s testimony of the events, take it as gospel

        Their only way to defend themselves is….

        1) Tell you you’re ignorant for not taking zimmerman’s testimony as gospel and know nothing about the case they claim to know

        2) Justice was served…the verdict came back not guilty…move on…there are more important things in life than death (especially since jurors and the justice system have NEVER handed out an incorrect decision)

        3) Assume Trayvon is a thug that wants to kill people just for the hell of it because he missed school (I missed school, I guess I should be locked up right now), smoked weed (not a big deal people), commit “jewel thefts” he was somehow miraculously never convicted of

        4) Give a detailed list about Trayvon’s life (fed to them by media) as if they were his best friend, yet know NOTHING about George Zimmerman’s life AT ALL

        5) Use the usual “you stupid Liberals!” argument when all else fails

        There are more defenses that have been used but that would take way more time than I have, and I have better things to do with my life then trying to speak to people who don’t argue coherently and are thus hopeless

      • David Fuller

        I did read the trascript and it does not support what you stated in the least. Here is a copy of it, you might want to read it as well before making assumptions that are not true or logical:

        Dispatcher: Sanford Police Department. …

        Zimmerman: Hey we’ve had some break-ins in my neighborhood, and there’s a real suspicious guy, uh, [near] Retreat View Circle, um, the best address I can give you is 111 Retreat View Circle. This guy looks like he’s up to no good, or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

        Dispatcher: OK, and this guy is he white, black, or Hispanic?

        Zimmerman: He looks black.
         
        Dispatcher: Did you see what he was wearing?

        Zimmerman: Yeah. A dark hoodie, like a grey hoodie, and either jeans or sweatpants and white tennis shoes. He’s [unintelligible], he was just staring…

        Dispatcher: OK, he’s just walking around the area…

        Zimmerman: …looking at all the houses.

        Dispatcher: OK…

        Zimmerman: Now he’s just staring at me.

        Dispatcher: OK–you said it’s 1111 Retreat View? Or 111?

        Zimmerman: That’s the clubhouse…

        Dispatcher: That’s the clubhouse, do you know what the–he’s near the clubhouse right now?

        Zimmerman: Yeah, now he’s coming towards me.

        Dispatcher: OK.

        Zimmerman: He’s got his hand in his waistband. And he’s a black male.

        Dispatcher: How old would you say he looks?

        Zimmerman: He’s got button on his shirt, late teens.

        Dispatcher: Late teens ok.

        Zimmerman: Somethings wrong with him. Yup, he’s coming to check me out, he’s got something in his hands, I don’t know what his deal is.

        Dispatcher: Just let me know if he does anything ok

        Zimmerman: How long until you get an officer over here?

        Dispatcher: Yeah we’ve got someone on the way, just let me know if this guy does anything else.

        Zimmerman: Okay. These assholes they always get away. When you come to the clubhouse you come straight in and make a left. Actually you would go past the clubhouse.

        Dispatcher: So it’s on the lefthand side from the clubhouse?

        Zimmerman: No you go in straight through the entrance and then you make a left…uh you go straight in, don’t turn, and make a left. Shit he’s running.

        Dispatcher: He’s running? Which way is he running?

        Zimmerman: Down towards the other entrance to the neighborhood.

        Dispatcher: Which entrance is that that he’s heading towards?

        Zimmerman: The back entrance…fucking [unintelligible]

        Dispatcher: Are you following him?

        Zimmerman: Yeah

        Dispatcher: Ok, we don’t need you to do that.

        Zimmerman: Ok

        Dispatcher: Alright sir what is your name?

        Zimmerman: George…He ran.

        Dispatcher: Alright George what’s your last name?

        Zimmerman: Zimmerman

        Dispatcher: And George what’s the phone number you’re calling from?

        Zimmerman: [************]

        Dispatcher: Alright George we do have them on the way, do you want to meet with the officer when they get out there?

        Zimmerman: Alright, where you going to meet with them at?

        Zimmerman: If they come in through the gate, tell them to go straight past the club house, and uh, straight past the club house and make a left, and then they go past the mailboxes, that’s my truck…[unintelligible]

        Dispatcher: What address are you parked in front of?

        Zimmerman: I don’t know, it’s a cut through so I don’t know the address.

        Dispatcher: Okay do you live in the area?

        Zimmerman: Yeah, I…[unintelligible] Dispatcher: What’s your apartment number?

        Zimmerman: It’s a home it’s 1950, oh crap I don’t want to give it all out, I don’t know where this kid is.

        Dispatcher: Okay do you want to just meet with them right near the mailboxes then?

        Zimmerman: Yeah that’s fine.

        Dispatcher: Alright George, I’ll let them know to meet you around there okay?

        Zimmerman: Actually could you have them call me and I’ll tell them where I’m at?

        Dispatcher: Okay, yeah that’s no problem.

        Zimmerman: Should I give you my number or you got it?

        Dispatcher: Yeah I got it [*********]

        Zimmerman: Yeah you got it.

        Dispatcher: Okay no problem, I’ll let them know to call you when you’re in the area.

        Zimmerman: Thanks.

        Dispatcher: You’re welcome

      • Bill Seat

        MY ignorance? GZ was doing his job, saw a suspicious individual and reported it! It was NOT raining and travon DIDN’T flee anywhere! GZ was ATTACKED at his truck so HOW could GZ be chasing anyone? Sara, you just make this shit up as you go along right? NO facts, just shit you heard happened!!!

      • Sara

        No, unlike you I read the 911 call transcript and GZ himself said it was was raining and that Treyvon took off running and when the 911 dispatcher asked if he was following him he said yes. His job as a Neighborhood Watch is to call the police and report what he sees and that’s the end of it. He was not a police officer so his job wasn’t chasing down the kid. You’re the one who disreguards facts.

      • Ken

        actually, his job would have been to follow his order which were to stand down. Let’s not forget that this guy wasn’t even a cop nor would he ever be allowed to be one since he has a quick temper and anger management issues.

        What a tool you are.

        When you’re properly informed, only then should you come back and post

      • Jampy Joe

        ahh, I get it. you’re racist. cute.

        now go back to the kids table. the adults are having a conversation.

      • Bill Seat

        Typical Libtard, you can’t argue the facts you callum racist? FYI I’m in a interracial marriage dumbass!!! GZ has BLACK family members, took a BLACK girl to the Prom, PROTESTED for justice for a BLACK kid murdered just months before this incident! AND watermelon tea, skittles and Robitussin is a POPULAR DRUG cocktail with high school kids dumbass!!!

      • Dave

        Well, then I guess the only thing to say is that I feel sorry for your wife. Maybe she didnt know what she was getting into when she married you

      • bocwheel

        If he thinks anyone in Texas will think he is white he is wrong you know how they treat Black folks most places well that is kinda how they treat ummm Latinos yea that is the word I was looking for in Texas good luck George you gonna need it

      • Brenda V

        Cript druggie? Where do you get your info from? At any rate, who his parents are or were is of zero relevance. He was unarmed, and minding his damn business. But because he’s black, he too, didn’t have the right to attempt to protect himself? Get the hell out of here! Simply amazed at your ignorance.

      • Brenda V

        That was meant for Doug…

      • bobbie fischer

        for one all travon martin was doing was walking home , the piece of shit was george martin , george martin is a racist punk and got away with murder , if a white guy had been walking with a hoodie on george martin would never have followed him and this would never have happened , the only person protecting himself was trayvon martin from a want to be cop

      • David Fuller

        “if a white guy had been walking with a hoodie on george martin would
        never have followed him and this would never have happened” Perhaps, after all it wasn’t “white guy” who was burglarizing the neighborhood. So if Trayvon had been white there would have been no reason to be suspicious of him. But because it was the black guys who were breaking into the homes and stealing stuff that Trayvon ended up being followed. So let’s blame the ones who were breaking into homes for this mess. Because if they hadn’t been doing that, then Zimmerman would have had no reason to be suspicious of Trayvon, now would he just because he was black? Oh, I forgot to mention that three weeks prior to the shooting, on February 2, Zimmerman called
        police to report a young man peering into the windows of an empty Twin
        Lakes home. Zimmerman was told a police car was on the way and he waited
        for their arrival. By the time police arrived, the suspect had fled. On
        February 6, workers witnessed two young black men lingering in the yard
        of a Twin Lakes resident around the same time her home was burgled. A
        new laptop and some gold jewelry were stolen. The next day police
        discovered the stolen laptop in the backpack of a young black man, which
        led to his arrest. Zimmerman identified this young man as the same
        person he had spotted peering into windows on February 2. From January 1, 2011 through February 26, 2012, police were called to The Retreat at Twin Lakes 402 times.
        Crimes committed at The Retreat in the year prior to Martin’s death had
        included eight burglaries, nine thefts, and one shooting.
        Twin Lakes residents said there were dozens of reports of attempted
        break-ins, which had created an atmosphere of fear in their
        neighborhood. Not ONE of the suspects were ever identified as being white. Every suspect was a young black male.

      • Matt

        Hey Bill, you’re a fucking moron. Trayvon smoked pot, but that doesn’t make him a “druggie”. Also, Zimmerman is Mexican, not white.

        ALSO, the average IQ of a Liberal/Progressive is over 100 (the national average), while the average IQ of a Conservative/Regressive is under 100.

      • Charles Vincent

        Martin also used lean as its called on the street.

        “ALSO, the average IQ of a Liberal/Progressive is over 100 (the national average), while the average IQ of a Conservative/Regressive is under 100.”
        This kind of fallacious rhetoric makes you look… Unintelligent to put it mildly.

      • Tim

        tell that to your boy “sweeping generalization” Bill. At least its a tolerable brand of being “unintelligent”

      • Charles Vincent

        What “sweeping generalizations” did he make?

      • Nick C.

        Nah, we don’t have a problem with race in this country, your comment definitely proves that. Way to keep it classy. Walking to the store at 7 in the evening to get a drink and candy is pretty stupid, right? Such gall, right? I guess you missed the entire trial or ANY presentation of the facts if that is the answer you come up with. Thank you for continuing to reinforce the reality of the modern Conservative movement – ignorant, racist, completely out of touch with factual evidence, or context, or using your brain before you type. Congrats.

    • quietwoman

      I am a PROUD PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT and a TEXAN and I hope the he11 he takes himself right on thru TX to someplace that welcomes him – because I don’t know a single person who thinks he is anything other than a racist killer.

      • Tim Davis

        he did what he had to do to protect himself from a thug! Trayvon was no Angel!

      • Jacci

        It’s a shame when I see people like you defend zimmerman, How do you know that Trayvon was a thug? funny I haven’t heard that and this coming from a black woman who Ill be the first to admit , HATE THUGS OF ANY RACE AND DO FEEL THAT THEY SHOULD GET WHAT’S COMING TO THEM, BUT I find it unfair for people to judge tray for beating the dog shit out of zimmerman, it was a fist fight and zimmerman got that ass whopped. See the operative word there? FIST FIGHT, Not a gun battle. that’s what’s wrong with this world today if you can’t beat em get a gun and kill em, smh at you and people like you. I pray you do not have children because if the shoe was on your foot I wonder how would you actually feel if someone snuffed out your child’s life betcha you wouldn’t be singing that same tune.

      • Jacci

        it’s a shame* excuse me

      • David Fuller

        My child would be raised to know that violence does solve anything. My child would not be smoking pot, skipping school, vandalizing school property, talking like an ignorant ass on facebook, and be in possession of stolen goods, and living with his uncle because his parents didn’t give a damn about him. So I rather doubt he would find himself in Trayvon’s position. I would of already made damn sure of that because I give a damn about my kids. Something that Trayvon never experienced in his short life. So if you want to point fingers, point them at his parents who failed completely at that job.

      • Tracy

        It’s funny you say your kid wouldn’t do any of that, yet nowadays the majority of teenagers have smoked pot by the time they finish high school. I went to school with twin guys. Both of them lived with their mom, step-dad, and sister. They had a good home life but they still ended up in the popular crowd and got into drugs. One summer night before our senior year, the eldest of the two was taking a boy home and wrecked the truck he was driving. It killed the other boy he was taking home. He was high at the time with cocaine in his system as well as had been drinking. His brother still did the same things as him after everything he went through. The thing is, you can be the best parent there is and be involved and devoted to your kids and tell them how drugs and drinking aren’t good, but the fact is they will still make their own choices and do what they want, especially if their friends are doing it.

      • David

        I don’t know whether to believe that older Americans (35+) are just completely oblivious, gullible, ignorant or all three. In the end I guess everyone hears what they want to heat instead of being objective and not just taking what is being fed to them by the media. Do some research on the backgrounds of both the boy (Trayvon) and the man (Zimmerman) to see who the true “Angel” is. Then do some further sociological research to see the percentage of (white/black/both/other) kids who smoke cigarettes or pot on a daily basis. Then find out the percentage of children that have tried drugs at least once in their lives (forget alcohol because I’m hoping that you can at least realize that number will be closer to 100% than it will be 50%). This is a project you have to do on your own. It’s the only way to learn these things. If I do the work for you it won’t stick

      • David Fuller

        I’m sorry to hear about the kids you went to school with. Seriously. The point I was making is that there are obivious signs that you kid is going in the wrong direction and as a parent you CANNOT turn a blind eye towards it. You HAVE to intervene. That is what being a parent is all about. I would NOT have let it get out of hand as it appears to be the case involving Trayvon. I would not have told my kid(s) I can’t deal with this, go live with your uncle. I would not be making excuses for them and I most certainly would have known if they were skipping school and had been suspended for all the crap trayvon pulled. Trayvon was a throw away kid and neither one of his parents gave a damn about him till he got himself shot. The utter and complete failure as parents killed this kid as surely as if they pulled the trigger themselves. Hell, his dad did not even know he didn’t come home that night. And he was GROUNDED for Christ’s sake. His mother didn’t even know about the marijuana charges. Yeah, that is a kid who is loved and paid attention to. NOT.

      • Zunicorns

        You must not have kids yet. Or you must not remember being a teenager. Or else maybe you plan on being a controlling, awful parent, in which case your kids will either turn out like freaks or rebel twice as hard, because you are speaking as though people have a choice in all of the choices their independently thinking teen makes.

      • David Fuller

        I raised three kids, all of who are now in their thirties. All three are college graduates who worked their way through college, who have NEVER been arrested or been involved in drugs. We did not raise them with a heavy hand, in fact we were considered to be the more liberal parents. But we did educate them about life, sex, drugs, and taking responsability for their own actions. No, they were not perfect kids and they did screw up like any other teenager would. The difference being is that we paid attention to them and allowed them to make their own decisions as well as suffer the consequences of bad decisions. We didn’t coddle them or make excuses for them. We simply set an example for them to follow through our own actions as adults and we demanded respect as well as demanded that they respect others. Which is the best that any parent can do.

      • NitaH

        A thug? There was no evidence of that. He was a kid, walking home from a store. Zimmerman spotted, pursued him from a car, which could be seen as stalking if you are sensible. He left the car and confronted him, after he was told not to by the authorities. Retrieved a gun and shot him. How is that not murder? Martin was probably fearful for his own life because he was being followed!! What part of that do you not get Timmy?

      • Bill Seat

        REALLY nita? There was TONS of evidence, from the Drugs and guns on his FB page to the burglary tools and STOLEN evidence in his backpack and the watermelon tea, skittles and Robitussin is a KNOWN drug cocktail popular with HS kids!!! Travon confronted GZ at HIS vehicle, sucker punched GZ tackled him, bashed his head with the sidewalk and got shot for his stupidity! He had his weapon on him the whole time and didn’t use it until he had no other choice! THESE are the FACTS, where’s yours?

      • JenniferAnn

        First of all, that would have had to have been a prescription cough syrup with codeine in order to make the cocktail you’re speaking of. In the case of Robitussin DM at least a bottle, usually two, would have to be slammed before a person would have enough dextromethorphan in their system to reach a dissociative state and the hallucinations that come with it.
        Second, even the racist pricks on stormfront managed to remember the fact that all he had on him at the time was a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona.
        If you really want to go the route of believing Trayvon was a thug,then I have a question for you. Who in their right mind would notice that they are being followed by some random guy and then lead that stranger with unknown intentions to your family’s front door?

      • David Fuller

        You must lead a very sheltered life then if you don’t know a single person who actually paid attention to the trial. Race had nothing to do with it. Stupidity had everything to do with it. Stupidity is sucker punching someone with a gun in his back pocket and then proceeding to beat his head into the pavement rather than walk a hundred yards to your front door and be done with it. Had Trayvon done that rather than starting a fight with Zimmerman he would still be alive today. Ever think of that? Didn’t think so, you’re from Texas not Florida.

  • Veronica A Hester

    No offense, but is this really newsworthy? Of course he has no remorse. He got away with murder. He is a shallow, racist, self-centered being. It probably is the SAME gun used to kill Trayvon Martin, he did get it back. To write about him speeding, is only going to give his supporters ammunition. “Oh look, they’ll nitpick about anything, how ridiculous.”

    • Ted ODell

      Newsworthy? Debatable. Lascivious (esp. for the LibRight, like me)? Priceless!!!!

      • Kimberly Collins

        You sure do love using the word “Lascivious” a lot. And what’s LibRight?

    I’d prefer he was out of the state I live in but Doug agreed. That’s probably why he picked here.

    It’s “discreet” not “discrete”. The former means careful and circumspect in one’s speech or actions especially in order to avoid causing offense or to gain an advantage. The latter means individually separate and distinct.

      Don’t forget “judgment” is not spelled “judgement”. Digdotblue, I have a life. I think that someone willing to post commentary ought to be willing to run spell-check before submission.

        Um, maybe not in Indiana, boy. But in most English-speaking spots outside of the U.S., it is indeed spelled “judgement.”

    “…his “shady” fleeing to Texas (apparently without telling anyone), ”

    What am I missing? Wondering 1) why was his going to Texas “shady?” 2) why was his going to Texas considered “fleeing.?” and 3) How is it known he didn’t tell anyone and who was it he was supposed to tell and didn’t?

      It’s Zimmerman. Some of us are going to think he’s up to no good for the rest of his life. Or ours. Though the way things have turned out, it’s a toss-up which will end first.

    • Allen Clifton

      He refused to tell the cop where he was going saying he was going “no place in particular”—a pretty odd statement for a guy that’s from Florida and alone in Texas. Especially when you consider he was going 80mph in a 60 zone. The cop also had to tell Zimmerman to put the gun in his glove box and “stop playing with his firearm.” So Zimmerman is alone, in Texas, driving 20 mph over the speed limit, doesn’t tell a cop where he’s going and has a gun sitting out in plain sight.

      You know what, you’re right—none of that is shady.

      • MaryBee

        actually Allen you are so wrong he was not playing with his firearm it was in the glove box the whole time and yes he was speeding but how many of us are guilty of speeding seriously people need to move on and maybe just maybe he did not tell the cop where he was heading because of all the treats he has been receiving there is nothing shady about that

      • Allen Clifton

        The cop told him to put the gun in his glove box and to stop playing with his firearm. I guess now you’re calling the police officer a liar.

      • MaryBee

        actually no he didnt he asked do you have afirearm he replied Yes in the glove box and took it out i seen the news thats all they say

      • Allen Clifton

        TMZ reported that the gun was in the glove box, the police station is saying the officer told him to put it in his glove box. I’ll trust the police officers over TMZ.

      • DigdotBlue

        you’ve never heard of a lying police officer? We have 2 of them on the local news right now who got busted..

      • Zunicorns

        Please post video or audio of the officer making these claims.

      • Charles Vincent

        Police do lie there is plenty of video footage on YouTube and mainstream media corroborating this.

      • kenny

        so you’d go to the lengths of just blindly assuming the officers lied over someone who undeniably has shaky credibility? I used to be surprised by responses like this but not anymore

      • Charles Vincent

        His(Zimmermans)credibility isn’t shaky his story was corroborated by all the evidence gathered by the police hence the not guilty verdict. Police do lie not saying this one is or isn’t just in general police lie.

      • Jampy Joe

        Zimmerman has no credibility. He’s a known child molester.

      • Charles Vincent

        Talk about no credibility it was a cousin saying shit to get her 15 minutes of fame.

      • Zunicorns

        I have seen nothing showing the officer making these claims- only the article’s author, and given how poorly it was written, yeah, I’d say he would likely lie about it.

      • Paul Shene

        Yes the police lie, and so do vigilantes.

      • Charles Vincent

        Apparently you missed it the jury acquitted him because all the evidence corroborated his story. Maybe if you bothered looking at the actual evidence and put away your bias for half a second you would see that, but I guess you’re too busy drinking koolaide and listening to rhetoric to be bothered with facts.

      • Paul Shene

        Actually the jurors afterwards said he got away with murder, AND there are strong suspicions that the prosecution took a dive, intentionally doing less than their best to lose the case.

      • Charles Vincent

        Really where’s the proof? Every article I have seen paints a different picture and even the evidence from the actual court records frm the trial say just the opposite of what you claim. And the fact is that Zimmerman only drew the firearm to prevent Martin from taking it out of the holster and shooting Zimmerman with it.

      • Jampy Joe

        nah, he’s right. the jurors made a lot of statements saying that they felt he got away with murder and that they only acquitted because of the stupidly written law.

      • Charles Vincent

        They didn’t use the stand your ground law it was pure self defense.

      • Jampy Joe

        yup.

      • Charles Vincent

        Actually you’re wrong.

        Sadly you’re both wrong and misinformed.

        “(CNN) — One of the jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman said she had “no doubt” he feared for his life in the final moments of his struggle with Trayvon Martin, and that was the definitive factor in the verdict.
        The woman, who was identified just as Juror B37, spoke exclusively to CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on Monday night. She is the first juror to speak publicly about the case.
        She said she believes Zimmerman’s “heart was in the right place” the night he shot Martin, but that he didn’t use “good judgment” in confronting the Florida teen.
        “I think George Zimmerman is a man whose heart was in the right place, but just got displaced by the vandalism in the neighborhoods, and wanting to catch these people so badly that he went above and beyond what he really should have done,” she said.
        Fringe protesters turn violent in LA after Zimmerman verdict
        “But I think his heart was in the right place. It just went terribly wrong.”
        Jeantel: I didn’t put Trayvon in casket Juror: Zimmerman’s heart in right place Juror B37: ‘It’s very emotional’ for me Anderson Cooper discusses Juror B37
        If anything, Zimmerman was guilty of not using “good judgment,” the juror said.
        “When he was in the car, and he had called 911, he shouldn’t have gotten out of that car,” she said.
        She also said she believes Martin threw the first punch in the confrontation that followed.
        “I think George got in a little bit too deep, which he shouldn’t have been there. But Trayvon decided that he wasn’t going to let him scare him … and I think Trayvon got mad and attacked him,” she said.
        Zimmerman felt his life was in danger before shooting Martin, and it was his voice that was heard screaming for help in 911 calls, the juror said she believes.
        “He had a right to defend himself,” she said. “If he felt threatened that his life was going to be taken away from him, or he was going to have bodily harm, he had a right.””

      • Jampy Joe

        fact: Zimmerman stalked a teenage boy
        fact: 911 dispatcher told him not to follow the teenage boy
        fact: Zimmerman kept following him
        possibility: Zimmerman got his ass beat for creeping up and perving on a 17 year old boy in the dead of night.
        fact: Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin to death.

      • Charles Vincent

        “fact: Zimmerman stalked a teenage boy”
        Fact: stalking is a repetitive behavior, Zimmerman didn’t stalk anyone he was captain of the neighborhood watch and he was following someone suspicious in his neighborhood where several burglaries had occurred.
        “fact: 911 dispatcher told him not to follow the teenage boy”
        The 911 dispatcher has no authority to tell Zimmerman to do anything and Zimmerman was under no obligation to take the dispatchers advice.
        “fact: Zimmerman kept following him”
        Zimmerman exited the car to look at the street signs in the area where he saw Martin to be sure he gave the dispatcher the right street names.
        “possibility: Zimmerman got his ass beat for creeping up and perving on a 17 year old boy in the dead of night.”
        This is pure speculation nothing more.
        “fact: Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin to death.”
        Martin committed assault and that assault became attempted murder when Martin told Zimmerman he was going to die tonight. Zimmerman fired only one shot, and he only drew his firearm in order to prevent Martin from taking it and shooting him with the weapon.

      • Jampy Joe

      • happy hayden

        what a terrible quote. full of admissions of “bad judgement” on zimmerman’s part and conjecture on martin’s (which is fascinating because displaying bad judgement is PRECISELY what gets you tossed in jail when it costs someone their life – its called manslaughter). not to mention that the remaining jurors all distanced themselves from the woman you quoted. did you forget the other juror that spoke out? you know, the one that wasn’t scared to show her face – the one that plainly said that zimmerman got away with murder. the bottom line is nobody saw anything and that simple fact heavily supports reasonable doubt. so kindly stop trying to pass conjecture off as fact.

        frankly i don’t believe zimmerman’s account of the night because serious questions were never seriously explained. like why does a neighbourhood watch captain that’s lived in the neighbourhood for years need to leave the safety of his car to check streets and addresses in a gated community with only 3 streets and plainly marked house numbers? or since when does the typical felon’s word get taken at face value by police (i could say “when their daddy is a judge”, but that would be conjecture…)? martin’s hand should have had blood on it from covering zimmerman’s mouth. there was none. martin’s nails should have had some residue underneath them from having grabbed zimmerman’s head to slam it in the ground – there was none (i could say that zimmerman firing his gun from where he was was enough for the kickback to hit him in the face and cause the injuries to both his nose and head, but that would be conjecture…). witnesses saw them fighting on grass, not concrete. grass stains on both and the position martin’s body was found in confirmed this. witnesses heard arguing before the fight began, so there wasn’t any surprise attack (i could say that any preemptive action on martin’s part was him standing his ground, but that would be conjecture…). zimmerman’s gun was holstered at the back of his pants, how did martin know that it was there to even try to grab it (i could say zimmerman either flashed or pulled his gun leaving the unarmed martin with no option but to go for the weapon, but that would be conjecture…)? kudos to zimmerman’s legal team for keeping him off the stand as i doubt he’d have withstood any serious direct questioning.

      • Charles Vincent

        Stop crying already it was self defense and whether you like it or not they voted not guilty based on the evidence. Evidence that supported George Zimmermans version of what happened period.
        The coroner remarked that the only marks on Martin were the GSW and his knuckles which were consistent with him striking Zimmerman.

        ” could say that zimmerman firing his gun from where he was was enough for the kickback to hit him in the face and cause the injuries to both his nose and head, but that would be conjecture…”
        Have you ever fired a firearm? And you are aware that Zimmerman’s weapon was a small caliber right? Then we have witnesses on the scene state that Martin was using an mma technique known as ground and pound. Your whole post is fictional and has no connection to what really happened.

      • happy hayden

        funny how you interpret being presented with valid questions as “crying”. classic ad hominem. zimmerman indeed said he was punched but he also claimed martin covered his bloody mouth to silence his screams and whisper threats. he stated martin grabbed his head and bashed it into the ground. both claims were shown to be false by the fact there was zero physical evidence to support it – martin had no blood on his palms or residues of any kind under his nails. you circular logic in this regard is truly asinine.

        unlike yourself, i don’t require logical fallacies, convoluted rationalizations or to employ imagination to come to terms with why the jury found him not guilty. nor do i confuse an acquittal with innocence like you are. zimmerman’s story appeared plausible but that does not in any way mean it was necessarily true. to convince the court of the APPEARANCE of plausibility – not the actual existence of it – is all that is required of the defense. how such a basic tenant of the legal system escapes you is beyond me. zimmerman’s story faced little direct challenge as his legal team wisely kept him off the stand. again, i tip my hat to them as they did their job well.

        you seem to be in denial of the fact that zimmerman made a series of erroneous judgment calls that led to the death of a person that was doing absolutely nothing wrong. judgement calls that quite clearly – and reasonably – put martin in a state of fear for his own life, so let’s not pretend that self-defense isn’t a two-way street here. you can assume that martin struck first but the only evidence of that is zimmerman’s say so and i can’t imagine why anybody in his situation would say otherwise – only an idiot would admit to instigating a confrontation leading to a death when there were no witnesses.

        and yes, i have fired firearms in my life and i know for a fact that a Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm can generate enough kickback to injure the operator if not employed with proper form. which begs the question: how exactly did zimmerman have the presence of mind/ability to access the gun from behind him, disengage the safety, cock and fire while on the bottom of a full mount while allegedly having his face bashed in?

        your description of “…mma technique known as ground and pound” proves you are parroting without any knowledge that it is a technique achievable from a variety of physical positions. what was described in court was a very specific wrestling/judo/jujitsu position called a “full mount” – a position that renders accessing anything behind your waist next to impossible as tthe man on top is applying his full weight on the hips or stomach of the man on the bottom. i’ve discussed this very point with seasoned soldiers and my own grappling instructors and, to the man, all have found zimmerman’s story fundamentally laughable in this respect. the irony is that until that point in zimmerman’s story, many of them actually believed the same things you do. but they know that even for them it would have proved extremely difficult if not impossible to do as zimmerman claimed he did.

        we are also expected to believe that he fired a 9mm pistol with proper extension and grip from a position that was impossible for him to do so. yes, the trajectory of the bullet matched their body positioning but that same positioning created a distance of no more than a foot and a half between them. that distance plus the frantic nature of the situation can hardly be considered optimal conditions for proper discharge of a weapon without some repercussion to the shooter.

        you are clearly willing to swallow everything you have been told and contrive explanation for that which was never fully explored. that’s fine, but there are some of us that are fully capable of telling the difference between rain and piss falling on our heads.

      • Charles Vincent

        They don’t allow links man your post will get deleted. Saying you are crying is not an ad hominem attack as it isn’t a personal attack.

        “”(CNN) — One of the jurors who acquitted George Zimmerman said she had “no doubt” he feared for his life in the final moments of his struggle with Trayvon Martin, and that was the definitive factor in the verdict.”
        You also refuse to acknowledge that all six jurors have to vote not guilty for there to be an acquittal

        “”I think George got in a little bit too deep, which he shouldn’t have been there. But Trayvon decided that he wasn’t going to let him scare him … and I think Trayvon got mad and attacked him,” she said.
        Zimmerman felt his life was in danger before shooting Martin, and it was his voice that was heard screaming for help in 911 calls, the juror said she believes.
        “He had a right to defend himself,” she said. “If he felt threatened that his life was going to be taken away from him, or he was going to have bodily harm, he had a right.”””
        Your arguments are baseless conjecture and outright fallacy.

        No he didn’t you liar. Zimmerman told him it was in the glove box. He had the glove compartment open. The cop told him to CLOSE the glove box. The gun never came out. Quit lying.

      • Tiffany

        That makes no sense…he gets threats so he can’t tell a cop where he is going. Its possible, but unlikely that the cop even recognized him. For all you know the cop was doing a routine pull over for a guy who was speeding. He was doing his job..

        Zimmerman was stalking Martin with the intent to rape him.

      • Zunicorns

        How do you find that to be a logical retort, Joe? All it does is make you look juvenile. You can disagree with Tim’s comment all you like, but he’s correct in that Zimmerman had no legal obligation to say where he was going. I think he got away with murder, but he got away with it because of a poorly written law. Articles like this just make the rest of us, those who agree Zimmerman murdered Trayvon Martin, look like nutjobs. The dude was speeding, like most of us do, he was pulled over, and had a weapon, which is his legal right and also perfectly logical considering he’s had numerous threats against his life. So how is this news?

      • Eady Trice Morgan

        ANd Martin had no legal obligation to either tell Zimmerman where he was going, or run from Zimmerman.

        It is if he is speeding…maybe if he had an emergency, that’s understandable but its shady.
        However, I take what this article says with a grain of salt because it seems biased by whoever wrote it. I agree with Joe, none of his business about Martin but he made it his. Knowing what happened, the cop has rights to ask.

      • bullygrrl

        Yeah, maybe he had some bad shrimp for lunch and had to get to a bathroom fast.

        I would have too considering the entire incident ended up in the news. If he is trying to avoid angry mobs why tell anyone he isn’t legally bound to tell where he is going. I’m not even supporting the dude but it would make 0% sense to advertise his future plans and whereabouts.

      • Jampy Joe

        I can’t wait till the mobs catch up to him.

        #1, He doesnt have to tell the cop where he is going. Its irrelevant.
        #2, How do you know he was alone in TX? Could have been going to the store for skittles and tea.
        #3, 80 mph is the normal speed of travelers on interstates, If not faster.

        I dislike Zimmerman and think he is a murderer, but I think this article is rubbish. What’s not normal about driving an 80 in a 60 when you’re on the interstate? I see it whenever I go on there, everyone speeds! His refusal to tell the officer where he was going was 1) his right 2) pretty smart considering he’s had many threats against his life. Which is also why he’s carrying his gun, so he can defend himself should anyone attempt to make good on one of those threats. The dude is scared. He’s scared, and he’s trying to get some privacy. I see nothing shady about anything he’s done. It’s all pretty predictable, in fact. This is not news worthy.

      • I wanted to make sure I wasn’t the only one thinking this LOL,but I completely forgot ALL about the gun though,

      • Akula765

        “he cop also had to tell Zimmerman to put the gun in his glove box and “stop playing with his firearm.”

        Where are you getting this. It isn’t mentioned anywhere above or in the linked story.

      • earldumarest

        None of your “facts” are correct.

    • sherry

      I agree, and I am not a Zimmerman supported, but he was aquitted. That was due to the laws in Florida. I don’t blame him for carrying a gun, now. Surely his life is in danger because he was aquitted. He must be scared. He shot a KID who was kicking his ass in a fight, so he knows he isn’t any good on his own, without back up. And he’s a free man – he doesn’t have to report his intent to travel to anyone. What you mean is that he didn’t tell anyone who would alert the media so they could make it a lead story, but he doesn’t owe anyone anything. Patience…it will all blow up eventually.Your article acused him of being “shady”. When pulled over, who tells the cops anything but what they want to hear? Take out all of the suspicion and inuendo in your story and he got pulled over for speeding…big deal. Next time, leave out the “assumptions” on how he “probably feels” and the nasty tone.

      • Zunicorns

        ^This.

      • Tiffany Mott

        Couldn’t agree more..

      • Charles Vincent

        “He shot a KID who was kicking his ass in a fight,”
        Are you aware of the fact that he only drew his weapon to prevent Trayvon Martin from taking it and shooting him with it?

      • Jampy Joe

        nah, he picked a fight with Trayvon and then got scared. Trayvon was just defending himself against Zimmerman who is a known child molester.

      • Charles Vincent

        He was returning to his car when Martin approached him and subsequently assaulted him. You really should stop with the rumors they make you look silly.

      • Jampy Joe

        wrong. he walked up behind Trayvon and started pushing him around.

      • Charles Vincent

        Are you high? He did no such thing. You’re just being obtuse.

      • Missy Johnson Brock

        neither of you were there, so how do you “know” what happened? Especially since we know that Jampy must have been in the trailer park…how do you think he knows how many people live there?

      • Jampy Joe

        oh hi dummy. you do know that he was recently arrested for pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend right? this is after he pulled a gun on his wife and punched his father in law.

        LOL @missyjohnsonbrock:disqus your hero is really shaping up to be a first class fuck up.

      • Mike McKallicuffy

        HA HA HA
        @missyjohnsonbrock:disqus just got pwned! you didn’t know that did you? can you even read? or do they just not get the newspaper in the trailer park?
        LOL

      • Missy Johnson Brock

        yes I knew that…it has nothing to do with the article. I really don’t give a shit what either of you think.

      • Missy Johnson Brock

        Obviously your mom was a world class fuck up. You have no respect for others whatsoever. Douchebag.

    • AversaS

      I agree. Like it or not, he is a free man. And that means he can move between states for whatever reason he wants. Not that he has to answer anybody about where he is going, but maybe he didn’t want to say so that cop wouldn’t tell whoever “meet him here.” If I was as hated as Zimmerman was, I would be “discreet” about where I was headed to as well.

      Just stop it already.

      • Jampy Joe

        yeah, kinda like Trayvon Martin had every right to walk home with some candy and a can of iced tea.

      • Melanie Mills

        Don’t you just love the double standard from Z’s apologists?

      • kenny

        It’s the way of America. The alarming majority of it anyway

      • Bobbie 828

        Except it wasn’t ice tea, it was watermelon fruit juice – he had 2 of the 3 ingredients needed to make lean and he had been looking for the third. Maybe people ought to give that “just some candy and ice tea” a rest. I won’t defend Zimmerman’s action, but if people feel they have to make up or hide facts about Martin, they must not think he is such an innocent victim. Personally I do and don’t believe that would change if Martin was portrayed as the person he really was.

      • Robynette

        YES! FINALLY .. someone who knows .. a voice of intelligence in the wilderness .. I am so happy to read your comment!

      • Jampy Joe

        all you know is he had juice and candy. everything else is just speculation. what we DO know is that Zimmerman stalked him with the intent of sexual harassment, bodily harm, murder and rape. Trayvon was only trying to defend himself against a known rapist/child molester.

      • Jampy Joe

        since when is watermelon juice grounds for being shot?

        you are a horrible human being.

      • Ms Rosa

        That is what was Trayvon Martin was doing, going about his business as a free person and not have to answer to anyone about where is he going although he was not given the opportunity and his life was taken.

    • Jampy Joe

      yeah, just about as ridiculous as a black person expecting to be able to walk home with a can of iced tea and some candy without being stalked and shot to death by some creepy dude.

      • Jason Bolton

        Because said person never turned on the person following him and proceeded to assault him, right?

      • kenny

        correction: by assault he means “defending himself from assault by an officer who has had anger management issues and was ordered to stand down”

      • duane

        You have comprehension issues. Did you actually follow the evidence presented in court? He is not an officer, he did not assault Trayvon, and he was not ordered to stand down. You are entitled to your own opinion, but not entitled to your own facts.

      • Eady Trice Morgan

        Correct!

      • Jampy Joe

        exactly. George Zimmerman deserved to die that night for perving on a teenage boy and stalking him like a predator. I hope Zimmerman gets stabbed in his eyes.

      • Packin’ heat

        Have you looked in the mirror lately? If that’s you in the pic, you’re about the creepiest dude I’ve ever seen, freak.

      • earthangel

        Have you looked in the mirror lately. The ugliness of your heart and soul must be showing on your face..Hate oozes through.

      • Robynette

        Jampy Joe .. it wasn’t ICED TEA .. he had been trolling the internet for the recipe for Lean .. a drink/drug made from skittles, watermelon drink and cough syrup .. so he could get high. He wasn’t s 5 year old skipping home from the store. He wasn’t “stalked” he was followed because he acted suspicious … get your facts straight.

      • Paul Shene

        The “recipe” story is something you racists pulled out of your anal cavity. If that “recipe” was remotely able to work, Trayvon Martin would have been tracked every time he purchased Skittles or watermelon flavored Arizona Iced Tea, the way they are tracked buying pseudoephedrine. He bought candy and a beverage. Your “recipe” story is a LIE.

      • Robynette

        You’re a little late to the story and the argument. The only LIE is that Trayvon Martin was murdered, Good riddance to bad rubbish. Don’t bother responding because I don’t care. I believe what I believe as do you.

      • Jampy Joe

        Paul Shene…
        world class racist and media sheep.

      • Jampy Joe

        wrong.
        1) he had iced tea and skittles. no cough syrup.
        2) Zimmerman stalked him with the intent to rape him. (it’s in the court records)
        3) there’s no law against cough syrup
        4) no one said he was 5 years old, and there’s also no law against being 17 years old, (unless you’re black)
        5) his suspicious “actions” were being black
        6) your mom gave you aids.

      • earldumarest

        It wasn’t ice tea. It was watermelon juice. Get your facts straight.

      • Jampy Joe

        OH SHIT! WATERMELON JUICE!
        well damn. I guess it all makes sense now. nobody should be allowed to walk around with watermelon juice. it’s a crime!!!

        OH wait. it was Arizona brand watermelon juice coctail. you know the same people who make the more widely known Arizona Iced Tea

        So I guess that means george zimmerman had every reason to stalk and attempt to rape, then shoot him.

        you racist conservatives are really dumb.

    • Jody Tucker

      You said it best.

    • GILLIAM300

      BUT U TOOK TIME TO COMMENT ON THIS ARTICLE.SO WHY IS IT SO RIDICULOUS?

    • Garth Cousins

      Totally agree, just stupid…….

    • Karen Annie

      Truth! He has nothing to “flee” from, he was not convicted of anything. It is not illegal for him to have a gun and just because he is carrying doesn’t mean he does not show a lack of remorse, the only one who knows how GZ feels is GZ. There is no possible way the idiot who wrote this article could possibly know that he “told no one” where he was going. I am neither a supporter or critic the system did what the system is supposed to do, leave this man alone.

  • Chico Gonzalez

    I think Zimmerman should be in prison. However, it’s none of the cop’s business where Z was going. You do NOT have to tell a cop your intended destination.

    • Dana Seilhan

      The cop was probably making small talk. They do that down South. OK, technically Texas isn’t the South, but there’s some overlap in habits there.

  • Thom Cameron

    Jesus this site is gone so petty lately.
    He was damned if he cooperated
    Damned if he didn’t.
    Give it a rest!

    • Dana Seilhan

      Nobody wanted to give Trayvon a rest. They hounded him *after* he was dead. Why shouldn’t we hound Zimmerman?

      • Thom Cameron

        I never ever saw anyone say we are glad he’s dead!
        So I haven’t any idea where you are coming from.
        But you weren’t there and obviously only listen to rumor and pass judgement which 6 jurist said you are wrong about.
        I guess however you would want the same treatment if you are targeted by hate mongers.
        Karma is a bitch so careful what you do!

  • Kay

    I don’t know if it’s really that “shady” or surprising or weird that he’d be on the run with a gun, discreet and quiet about where he’s headed. I’m sure he’s scared for his life and wants to go into hiding. I’m sure a lot of people would love to get a piece of him.

    • Barry Tate

      Yup…

    • ken

      ehh, i’m not worried. I heard karma’s a bitch

  • Surprise he didn’t resist with violence,that’s right I took it there

    • Dana Seilhan

      The cop was probably white. Can you imagine?

  • Ernie Dubsteppin Bragg

    Or he didn’t know why he was leaving because he got serious Death Threats.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not on his side, but drop the ignorance, please.

  • Suzanne Longo

    So he got himself another gun. Wonder what kind it is. Hope this one has a safety on it.

  • bailey78

    I guess he was headed to Pedo teds house to hide out and talk about how bad ass he is and how he would kill so many people if he was a real cop or in the Army

  • miserableoldfart

    Are all the states between flaccida and Texass legal for an out of stater to have a firearm in the car? ALL???

    • lword

      Well, since those states are probably Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana, yeah.

    • Dana Seilhan

      It only matters if they pull you over.

  • Paul Shene

    Maybe he’ll get into another gunfight, only with someone who shoots back. Of course he may run into a redneck who see him as a Mexican and shoots him on that basis.

    • Jampy Joke

      Yeah, Too bad Trayvon picked a fight with someone that fought back eh Paul?

      • Joah Starqs

        We don’t know what Trayvon did? We just no the story of a man tryin to cover his ass.

      • earldumarest

        Yeh we know. He went ape and got killed.

      • happy hayden

        really? since you were there, i wonder why you didn’t testify…

  • George

    “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” you to write such a piece of drivel.

  • Alphafemale

    The officer doesn’t need to know where he was going.
    Zimmerman has a legal right to carry a lawfully purchased and registered handgun.
    If a large percentage of people despised and threatened you, you’d carry a gun too.
    I didn’t like the verdict in his case, but geez leave him alone already. He was acquitted.

    • debbiecrouse

      He could have left Trayvon alone also, GZ brought all of this on himself. He’s too blame for all his problems, not anyone else!!

    • Kimberly Collins

      He carried that gun around before he was threatened by a large percentage of the population. He was “threatened,” it seems, by a 17 y.o. boy in a hoodie with an iced tea and pack of Skittles. Oh noes! Skeery!

  • eddy C

    Vigilante George will soon find out his life would have had more peace and quiet in prison, rather than out free

  • Howie

    Run Forrest run!!!

  • Ralph Harris

    Hope he got a warning, and a welcome to Texas from the Cop. This poor guy has went through enough.

    • Dana Seilhan

      Incorrect. He has not yet gone through a plate glass window.

    • Kimberly Collins

      Been through enough already? He murdered a child and he got off? What did he have to go through?

  • Model railroad man

    MAYBE A NICE TEXAN WILL PUT A COUPLE IN HIS HEAD AND BE A HERO!!

  • Brenda

    I usually like your posts, but this one seems petty, skewed and well, unfair. You’ve never taken a road trip, gotten pulled over for speeding, not wanted a cop to know every little detail? You’re better than this one.

  • moe

    How is this news?

  • Tom Lavender

    I feel he should ALWAYS carry a gun, given the threats made against him, even though found NOT GUILTY of the charges.
    Why not go to Texas if he wants to? What is he supposed to do, put on a bulls eye tee shirt and ride around Sanford
    Truthfully he should have his own gun he used before.

    • Kimberly Collins

      Of course. He felt the need to ALWAYS carry a gun before, so why not now? You Zimmerman apologists just kill me. Just come right out and say that you’re racist and would love to kill black children if given a chance. That’s why Georgie boy is your hero.

  • DJ

    this is not breaking news. this happened on sunday!

  • Cameron

    It’s kind of funny that they’re saying he has a lack of remorse because he’s carrying a firearm? No, thousands of outraged people want this man dead for no reason, they must not understand our justice system. If I was Zimmerman, I’d be carrying a firearm as well.

    • polliwogg

      Weapon won’t do him a bit of good. If someone wants him dead, George won’t have a chance to get to his weapon. He likely won’t even see it coming.

    • Kimberly Collins

      Well, why was he carrying a weapon the night he killed Trayvon? Surely it wasn’t because of the threats on his life.

  • machokid

    your writing is awful. your use of the word ‘discrete’ makes no sense. it’s very distracting to the subject matter.

  • stephanie77tx

    Its amazing how white right wing nuts will support a stalking, woman beating, police officer assaulting, child molester just because he killed a black kid. Trayvon did not have a criminal history unlike Zimmerman. Many white kids get suspended from school, get in trouble for graffiti, smoke pot. Just look at your last president the ex alcoholic, cocain addict Bush. He went on to become a war criminal. No one cares about while serial killers, criminals, gang members, child molesters, ect. Only if black people do anything of the sort do you think all hell has broken loose.

    • Michael Miller

      I am an independent, so I don’t fall into that catagory, but quit blaming white people for the actoins of a PORTARICAN! !

      • Kimberly Collins

        (1) It’s spelled Puerto Rican.
        (2) Zimmerman isn’t Puerto Rican. I believe I read that the Latino part of his family is from Ecuador (if memory serves). But I see that all Latinos are PORTARICANs to you. For other racists, all Latinos are Mexican.
        (3) I love how the racists show their “colors” all over the place with this trial, first by calling Trayvon a “thug” and saying all kinds of nasty things about him that have no basis in fact and then by making such a big point that Zimmerman’s NOT white. Y’all just kill me. Next you’re gonna say, “I’m not racist & I have a black friend. Why, I was even nice to a PORTARICAN landscaper once!” LOL

  • JP

    Wow, Allen. Usually you make good points in well-written articles, but this one just reeks of vendetta. So he went to Texas. Who cares? People drive to other states all the time. Speeding? SERIOUSLY?? That’s barely a minor offense…. and OF COURSE he has a gun in the glove box. Wouldn’t you, if 1/4 of the country wanted you dead?
    Get over it. I’m surprised you didn’t mention the race of the cop that pulled him over.

    • Kimberly Collins

      So why was Zimmerman carrying a gun the night he murdered Trayvon Martin? Because 1/4 of the country didn’t hate him then…Why did he feel he needed to carry that gun? And stalk a kid?

  • Kmh

    He’s gonna get a buck wheat hit.

  • Gary

    Worst article ever. He is a free man can go where he wants. Can also have a weapon , not a felon. Only shady thing here is the writing of this article.

  • Tyler Oldham

    This site is a BS joke and not to be taken serious. .

  • jag0581

    Zimmerman was found not guilty of the crime because out of all the evidence presented the jury found reasonable doubt. The prosecution has to proof beyond a reasonable doubt their case and failed to do so. I for one have not seen all the evidence presented at trial and was not there the night of the killing so therefore I cannot judge whether he is guilty or not. Without all the facts one should not judge guilty or not guilty. As for his speeding in Texas, so what I can care less where he is and frankly the fact he has a gun leads to think he carries one with him all the time who cares.

    • DigdotBlue

      actually, the way they were instructed gave them no other option than the not guilty verdict. They were instructed on the Stand Your Own Ground Law in such a manner that they had no other choice. It’s a terrible law when you have 21st century solutions. This isn’t the Wild West and the buffalo have no where to roam. I’m glad I live in a community
      where no one even thinks of guns, people aren’t so paranoid that they need killing machines on hand.

  • JSB3

    He will do something get into trouble again. You just wait and see. He is already a sicko. His supporters are sickos too. It’s just a matter of time before he does. Those with a criminal past can’t stay away from being a criminal for long.

  • Atheist Loki

    He had to leave Florida before he became a victim of self defense.

  • Codswallop

    Please look up the word “discrete.” I don’t think it means what you think it does.

  • Michael Miller

    Ok I like this site usually, but I am sick of hearing this. Zimmerman whould have been given a medal then hung. He shot a CHILD. A punk ass gangsta wanna be CHILD. He should have stayed in his car, till the REAL cops showed up. Also, how does every white man get blamed for the actions of a punta Rican? Also, it is in poor taste for the race brothers, Jackass Jr. and Sharpton to be making such a big deal of this. A white kid was MURDERED by a black kid, in my town, and it never made it past the local news, which is usually the case when it is a black shooting a white.

    • Kimberly Collins

      Black (and white and Hispanic) children are killed in my city (Baltimore) all the time…far more children in Baltimore are killed annually as a result of gun violence than died in Newtown. It NEVER makes the news. So what’s your point? You have a real problem with race, especially when you feel it necessary to point out that Zimmerman is not white, but “punta Rican” (whatever that is)…which he’s not. What I’ve read is that his family on one side is Ecuadoran. But I guess all Latinos are Puerto Rican to you. Sorry, PUNTA Rican.

      • Michael Miller

        And I guess everyone with a drop of white blood in them should be blamed for the actons of a man who is not white!

    • Guest

      Zimmerman is not white. Everyone has played the race card, again. It must be nice to have an EXCUSE for EVERYTHING.

  • poo bah

    I heard he was wearing a “I was acquitted of killing Trayvon Martin and all I got was this lousy T-shirt” T-shirt. Now that’s messed up.

  • pandapal

    Wouldn’t having the gun in the glove compartment be considered “carrying a concealed weapon?” Isn’t that illegal, even with a permit?

    • Kimberly Collins

      Not in Texas, not if you have a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

  • Cee Hep

    Oh please more bs about Zimmerman, he and his family where in hiding when they claim he pulled people from a car. Now he in Texas, so he likes gun states where he can shot to kill at anytime. Well they also like to execute, understand know one cares. People want justice not to harm him so stop giving him a excuse to kill again.

  • Tim Davis

    George Zimmerman I knew you were innocent from the beginning!

  • MechaVelma

    and other than speeding, what’s the problem? And knowing Texas pigs, he was probably going only 2 miles over the limit.

  • Micky

    Of course he isn’t staying in Florida after this case has ended, I would probably move too if I was him! He was pronounced innocent by a court of law, but because of the media, will never be free again. You find it odd to be reluctant to say where he is headed after all the threats on his life that he has received, I wouldn’t, he is probably just being cautious about who he tells. Cop or not… everybody is willing to sell info nowadays. As for carrying a gun in the glove box being in poor taste… I don’t see it that way, he is a man with many death threats made against him. Need I say more…. but here you go, just when things are starting to settle down a bit… you feel the need to post this story to try and stir the pot again… big deal, he and a million other people got speeding tickets… nobody cares, move on!

  • Al

    That chicken shit murdering coward will fit right in in (North Mexico), I mean Texas.

  • This article is ridiculous. He has ever right to keep a gun. His Florida concealed carry permit is valid in Texas, and he has every right to refuse to tell the officer where he is going.

    The only thing crime he allegedly committed here was speeding, and I doubt that the commenters here have never exceeded the speed limit before.

  • E holder

    He got a speeding ticket and this hack of a writer, Clifton, is moronically reading into it. Oh my should he or shouldn’t have a gun? Let’s see the New Black Panthers set a bounty on his life and our impartial AG isn’t exactly moving to investigate that situation. How many of Clifton’s readers threatened his life afterward? Yeah he had a gun and any sane person would have one too. And his moving to Texas makes sense. I am surprised he stayed even a day in Florida after the verdict. Texas probably has the least amount of unhinged and violent progressives so it is probably the safest place for him. He is political pawn who should never have been charged given the facts and the law but that wasn’t enough to save him from the hatred and intolerance of the left.

    • Kimberly Collins

      “unhinged and violent progressives”??? What country are you living in?

    • Kimberly Collins

      He should never have been charged? He killed an unarmed child!

  • superg05

    HE’S HEADED FOR THE BORDER OF MEXICO

  • Johnnie

    I can’t believe people are actually talking about his. I don’t call a free man going to Texas “Fleeing” what’s he “Fleeing: from and who knows who he told he was going, He probably told the people who’s business it actually is and as for having a gun, no matter where it is in his car or his person, it’s his right to have it. Thousands of people get pulled over in all 50 states for speeding and some of those people have guns…..SO WHAT!!!

  • Brad Kendall

    This is NOT news! Do you not have anything better to talk about? This is so stupid. Like seriously, there is NO REASON this should be news… Someone got pulled over for speeding with a legal gun and he told the cops that he had the gun, and the cop said “put it in the glove box”. This is NOT news! You’re an idiot for writing this story, this website eats balls for allowing you to post this article. This is something the onion would post. The only thing that might be “news worthy” about this whole incident is the fact that someone in America didn’t know who George Zimmerman was after the media has been shoving him down our throats 24 hours a day for the last 6 months. Allen Clifton is a very terrible journalist.

  • John Ishmael

    this is a stupid article. When does anyone have to “tell someone where they are going” When traveling between states?

  • Josh

    He probably fears for his life and figures Texas is pro gun so he might have been able to blend in and carry a gun without any issues. Can’t say I blame him. If he came across the wrong people, they would definitely mess him up. Maybe even kill him.

  • FreeZ-Man

    No “hispanic-white” in Texas, just hispanic… or white… and they all have guns down there. Yikes.

  • homfri

    hes acted shady because, i dont know, HALF THIS COUNTRY WANTS HIM DEAD. leave him alone, he got acquitted, stop bringing him up.

  • RonWPB

    Agree with Bobbie828… the author of this absurd article, Allen Clifton, should not be in the journalism profession. His remarks are inane and spoken like a true 10th grader. His “lack of remorse?” What is that supposed to mean? How does Mr. Allen know he has a lack of remorse? In addition, I’m sure we’d all love to read the actual article that he’s referring to and, second, we’d really love to see the video as well that he speaks of. Hmm, no links of any kind. I didn’t think so. People like Mr. Allen ought to keep their imaginations to themselves. Mr. Allen, you are poor excuse for a journalist.

    • Zunicorns

      Scroll down in the comments for some more entertaining “journalistic” commentary from the author.

  • L G

    He has a carry license…so why the big deal about the gun? People speed too, so what is the big deal about that? And can we finally get the photo of what he looks like NOW rather than ages ago??? He doesn’t look like this anymore!! And with all the threats to this man’s life, no one expects him to carry? Now that is really nuts!!! If I were him I would have more than one weapon!!

    If he is leaving FL, that might be a good thing too!! Now people can’t travel? How is any of this “supicious”??? Can we finally let this story go??? Media is the problem in this whole thing from the beginning! The trial is over. Knock it off already!! All this does is piss people off and the whole thing is brought up again and hatred is renewed once more which is totally proven by the comments here! Is that the goal of media; to keep the hatred and anger going so more violence is done? Who the heck cares where the man is going. Give him a ticket for speeding and move on!!!!

    What an idiotic rant.

  • ssteph111

    There are no drivers in ANY State that would like to see him speeding up behind them with a gun in his glove box! Ha!

  • cat

    . 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.

    Wouldn’t matter because so many people in Texas carry a gun and we have a law similar to SYG.

  • Missy Johnson Brock

    Maybe he’s carrying a gun, and headed to Texas because he knows so many people are after him…and he also knows that Texas is a very gun/second amendment-friendly state.

  • me

    so what he had a gun… thousands of people carry guns, hes had a lot of death threats, i’d carry a gun too.

  • winann92

    If Zimmerman had told Trayvon to back off that he had a gun if as he said he was so scared for his life, Trayvon would be alive today, his intention was to kill that poor kid but he will get his.

  • winann92

    The Cop told him to leave the gun in the glove compartment and do not remove it while he there with him.

  • Makayla

    I too am no supporter of Zimmerman… but I guess I am not a supporter of Martin either. I feel though I have adequate information from media… media tells what they think will rate, which is often skewed. Much like this…
    I am no supporter of murder ever, but there was no actual proof that Martin was sought after and murdered as the media presented. Even more so, this did not seem like a racial crime…
    With all that said, I would expect Zimmerman to carry a gun. I suspect that ignorant people would like to take ‘justice’ into their own hands. I suspect Zimmerman now fears for his life on a daily basis. He is known to be a fan of guns, he is known to carry guns… why not now?
    I also don’t see how there was any ‘shady’ activity. Texas is a place that has some of the most lenient self defense laws. Seems like the perfect fit for him.

  • RICHARD BARNES

    DAMN George what kind of mess have you got yourself into!no peace in your life ever. that is not too healthy. you do the crime do the time .it may be better to do it in jail. now you got it worse. may god be with you.

  • Michael Wunderlich

    I really wish this Zimmerman guy would just go away…

  • Claudia

    Very true. He should be in jail now. Sooner or later, he will seriously trip up and be in trouble again….guilty conscious.

  • Abison Ace

    He’s up to kill more people. Hmm, according to history, you die by what you love doing most. May be, it is the way we can see justice. All black men should be armed, specially for people like Zimmerman… Don’t give them time to even think twice. We can show them how we do it. And fuck the justice system, we do what have to do. These maggots are dangerous out there.

  • Carla Leach

    It’s his right to go where ever he wants and to carry a gun if he chooses to. He is a free man. He was found not guilty. Maybe he didn’t want to tell the officer exactly where he was headed because he knew it would end up in the news like this did. If people made death treats against me I guarantee I would carry a gun and I wouldn’t want my location broadcasted for everyone to know.

  • mick62

    This is a nonevent. Its evident YOU are trying to make something out of nothing. Whether you agree with the verdict or not, what is “evident” regarding his remorse or lack thereof? That is all YOUR supposition. This article is worthy of the Nat’l Inquirer – where they assign all sorts of imaginary motives for things they know nothing about. You disappoint any objective reader today.

  • Kenny Amos

    maybe he needs a gun to protect him from all the wacko’s after him cause of all the news coverage 500 times a day.. yet you never see how Chicago had OVER 500 shooting deaths last year alone,,, and OVER 250 so far THIS YEAR ALONE.. 4th of july weekend there was 12 shooting deaths one was 5 yrs old and 62 people shot but not killed.. Guess there lives ain’t worth talking about right!!! (google for the facts before you reply)
    I guess people like blaming a white man for a brown mans actions.. yes Zimmerman is half white half Hispanic… but EVERYONE says he white,, enough about Zimmerman. the law found him not guilty.. move on

  • Kenny Amos

    shady and fleeing??? are your serious,, he wasn’t fleeing anything and wasn’t shady being in texas,, and he has a legal right to have his legal gun in the glove box.. He needs it cause all the news coverage 24 hrs everyday has made many people send death threats to him, they say there gonna shoot him, burn his house torture him.. WHY would he stay in florida and have some media driven crazy try to kill him???

  • farrybeckyns67

    People should stop worrying about this guy. he might have escaped the law, but if he killed Trayon without provocation or in “self defence”, he will surely kill another person soon and truth, which is not easily submerged, will surface and there would be no hiding place for him. When a man kills, it does not take long to get him, because he will repeat the same act if his mind set is tuned to killing..

  • aeroplansucks

    He’ll fit right in. Texas and idiots with eyes too close together seem only natural. George W. Bush, George Zimmerman, etc., etc., etc.

  • Georgie

    Who really cares!!!! Blah blah blah…… Speeding, so what!!!!
    And guns are legal in Texas…. This isn’t even a “Story”….. Get over it!!!!!

  • Georgie

    Ya know….. I’m tired of people not wanting to be judged but walking around like THUGS with their pants down, showing their damn underwear…. This look came from jails…. If that the positive message you let your kids represent, you are all fools as parents!!! PULL UP YOUR DAMN PANTS!!!! It shows no respect or class…

  • Packin’ heat

    Please shut up. He has every right to go wherever he wants and he also has every legal right to carry a firearm. Furthermore, with all the unwarranted death threats he’s received he needs to carry a firearm. You’re probably the odd man out if you’re not carrying in Texas anyway. Try to take a gun away from a Texan and watch what happens. And of course he’s secretive about where he’s going. You really aren’t very intelligent are you?

  • chair jackson

    If I was him I wouldn’t be speeding or doing anything else that might get me in trouble with the law. but it looks like he has a very steep learning curve.

  • enealDC

    He’s going to need a gun even more now. I just hope that he discharges it more judiciously

  • xyzlo

    Texas is the logical choice, for him.

  • Zero

    This is faking stupid

  • It’s just Pat

    You run and hide now, Georgy-Z. Have fun living with your freedom, yet constantly in fear of anyone. I guess there is “hell to pay” on earth sometimes. Anyone ever hear the saying, “you reap what you sow”?

  • Robynette

    What about this is “shady” ???!?! The guy has to hide out because there are so many ignorant people who want to kill him because they think he committed a crime. LEAVE him alone. He is a man living in fear. This is not news .. it’s the continued persecution of a man who defended himself. Why can’t he go to TEXAS? He’s a free man .. he doesn’t have to call his mommy for permission. And it’s not like he’s going on a rampage shooting people on freeways in Texas .. Texas would be happy to have him, they BELIEVE in the second amendment and self-defense. He’s probably a hero down there. It’s disgusting what you all are trying to do.

  • Mike in VA

    He is a free man. He can go wherever he wants, whenever he wants. With idiots out there like the author of this article he is best protected by having a gun… as anyone would be.

  • Rusty

    Your an idiot Allen and a hypocrite.

  • Ramona LeBlanc

    And the cop said, “What a coincidence!” Guess he was kinda looking for Georgie to show up in Texas, the firearm capitol of the country. He has so much money from donations that he doesn’t have to work any more so guess he figured he’d relocate to a place where he would fit in; a place where they shoot first and ask questions later. Hope he lives long enough to spend it all.

  • Jay

    Maybe it is not enough to face a jury and be found not guilty. Maybe we should throw all of the laws out. Live as wild men and women with no rule of law, no taxes, no government. But with liberals media like Allen Clifton, we don’t need to believe in our jury’s verdict, just have court by media, judgement by media, and execution by media.

  • Well duh

    Well he was shady about where he was going because he doesn’t want the people who are throwing riots to know where he is. He has a gun to protect himself from people who want to hurt him.

  • josy

    Am I really the first person to think he’s headed to Mexico?

  • earldumarest

    so how stupid is allen clifton? In his garbage he writes,”speeding and carrying a gun in his glove box. ” Then in the comments he write, “has a gun sitting out in plain sight.”

  • earldumarest

    “to show poor taste for a man who many feel killed Martin in cold blood to already have another weapon in his possession. ” The dumbest thing I’ve ever read.

  • F1nn3as

    In Texas it is legal to shoot whores who don’t put out. I expect that Jorge was on his way to Juarez, probably there by now. Expect he got that job there.
