Just last week George Zimmerman was arrested for allegedly pointing a shotgun in his girlfriend’s face. While police were unable to find any weapons in the home upon his arrest, this was not the case when they searched the home again recently. Authorities say they found five weapons, including an AR-15, and more than 100 rounds of ammunition. According to the search warrant, police also found three handguns, a 12-gauge shotgun, a rifle, three handgun holsters, as well as a pocket knife. Despite these recent findings, Zimmerman is out on bail and has entered a plea of not guilty. The judge however, did put these conditions on the bail that was set for him: Zimmerman cannot go to two Florida addresses, he cannot have contact with the accuser, Samantha Scheibe, he cannot possess weapons, he must wear a monitoring device, and he cannot travel outside Florida. George Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie Zimmerman, is also be questioned by reporters for her thoughts on her husband’s actions. She told Katie Couric that she now questions his innocence concerning the Trayvon Martin case, and does believe he is a ticking time bomb. She also hopes he gets the help he needs, and that he doesn’t end up hurting anyone else.
Many reporters are comparing George Zimmerman’s behavior to that of OJ Simpson. Even though he has gotten away with what many like to call “murder,” he still refuses to lay low and be the “model citizen” that one of the jurors in the Trayvon Martin case claimed he would be once the case was over. It is clear that this man does need help, and that he needs to be reprimanded. I often wonder how the jurors of the Trayvon Martin case feel now about the decision they made to let this man be free because he is proving to be a danger not only to himself but the rest of the public as well. It is my prayer that this man is stopped before another tragic incident has the chance to occur again.
