MIAMI (AP) — Florida authorities say George Zimmerman, whose acquittal of murdering an unarmed black teen sparked a national debate on race and self-defense laws, has been arrested for allegedly throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend.
The Seminole County Sheriff's Office says the 31-year-old Zimmerman was arrested for aggravated assault at his home in Lake Mary about 10 p.m. Friday.
Fat Bastardo's OP ED:
My first question is this. What idiot issued Zimmerman a pistol permit?
My second question is; given Zimmerman's history of assault before he gunned down Trayvon Martin why was he issued a concealed carry permit. In 2005, Zimmerman, then 20, was arrested and charged with “resisting officer with violence” and “battery of law enforcement officer,” He got a slap on the wrist for that.
My third question is; given Zimmerman's arrests for aggravated assault since he murdered Trayvon Martin why is he still allowed to own firearms.
In this latest assault Zimmerman threw a bottle at his girl friend. A bottle can kill or do grievous bodily harm. His bail was set at $5000. Let's say Zimmerman had thrown a bottle at a cop. What would his bail been then? It seems that if the criminal state of Florida you get a in less trouble for killing unarmed boys and attacking unarmed women than you do for assaulting a cop.
If Florida was no a state run by criminals the rule of law would prevail and it the politicians and judges were not all mobbed up with the drug cartels and the medical fraudsters like Rick Scott and Jeb Bush the police in Florida would be ordered to put bad guys in jail and otherwise serve and protect the many good people Florida.
