He did this, then got away with it. His “not guilty” verdict wasn’t as much a declaration of innocence as it was a decision based upon the specific charges the prosecution sought against him.
But it’s indisputable that George Zimmerman stalked, provoked and then killed Trayvon Martin.
Now, less than two months after that verdict, news has come out that his wife Shellie Zimmerman called 9-1-1 saying George assaulted her father, destroyed her iPad and was sitting in his vehicle with a gun threatening (from her 9-1-1 audio) to shoot her.
In fact, according to Ms. Zimmerman, he seemed to be provoking her to “come closer.”
If you listen to the audio, Zimmerman’s wife sounds absolutely terrified. She implies several times that she’s not sure what he would be capable of and it didn’t seem outside the realm of possibility that he could start shooting at her and her father at any time—even with police arriving on the scene.
Now I’m sorry, but your own wife doesn’t fear the possibility of her husband opening fire as police show up unless she knows there’s an underlying issue most might not be aware of. Because there’s a difference between someone possibly being suicidal and turning the gun on themselves (which is often a legit concern in these cases), and someone possibly possessing the capacity to open fire on not only her and her father, but arriving officers as well.
George Zimmerman is a perfect example of the failures of our justice system.
While millions of individuals sit inside jail cells for non-violent offenses (many relating to drug addiction), George Zimmerman is free to live his life however he likes even following an incident where he stalked a young man, provoked him, then shot and killed him.
Now here we have police being called by his wife as he sat in his car holding a gun, allegedly provoking and threatening to shoot her.
George Zimmerman is a despicable human being that should have, at the very least, spent a good amount of time in prison.
Instead, the prosecution got greedy and blew the case, and now he’s free to do whatever he likes—which appears to include threatening his wife and her father.
So while a jury might have found George Zimmerman “not guilty,” it damn sure doesn’t mean that he’s innocent. We can only hope that no more tragedies occur thanks to this man being free to roam the streets.
