No More George Zimmerman

I am a 42 year old, seasoned man. I've been around a while, and I still have a while to go. I may not know everything. Who does? But I'm wise enough to know that people will always be who they are. Can people change? Possibly, but the key ingredient in reference to change is that people have to want to change. "Perfect people" will never change. They'll just wait, and wonder why the world doesn't change around them. Ultimately their delusions of grandeur, and blatant disregard for anything vaguely resembling reality will be their undoing.

Case in point George Zimmerman.

Shellie Zimmerman, the wife of George Zimmerman, declined to press charges Monday afternoon despite calling 911 and accusing her husband of using a gun to threaten her family.

Zimmerman was acquitted of murder two months ago in the shooting of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin.

"He's in his car and he continually has his hand on his gun and keeps saying step closer ... and he's gonna shoot us," a breathless and clearly scared Shellie Zimmerman told the police emergency operator, according to the 911 call released by police.

"He's just threatening all of us with his firearm," she added.

Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce last week, also said her husband had punched her father in the nose and smashed her iPad.

"I don't know what he's capable of. I'm really, really scared," she told the 911 operator.

Lake Mary, Florida, police spokesman Zach Hudson said no one had been arrested or injured after police officers were called to a house belonging to Shellie Zimmerman's father, David Dean.

At one point she told her father to take cover. "Dad, Dad, get inside the house. George might start shooting at us," she can be heard shouting.

"Oh my God, oh my God," she added, breaking down in tears.

Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell later said Shellie and her father did not to plan to press charges.

Zimmerman, 29, was briefly put in a patrol car and later the former neighborhood watchman accused his wife of being the aggressor in the incident, he said.

"There was an altercation and one party put their hands on another party," Hudson added. "We're still trying to figure out who touched whom."

Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara blamed the incident on "fallout" from the Martin case, as well as heightened emotions over the impending divorce. "No one is filing charges against anybody," he said, adding that he had heard the 911 call. "Emotions are running very high," he added.

O'Mara confirmed Zimmerman had his gun on him. "He was armed ... He put his hand (on the gun) to make sure it was holstered," he said. "He knows how to carry responsibly."

Police initially took away Zimmerman's gun, but O'Mara said it was later returned to his client.

Shellie Zimmerman's lawyer was also at the scene but did not return calls seeking comment.

The three-bedroom house on a cul-de-sac in a leafy suburb of Orlando was where the couple lived during George Zimmerman's month-long trial, said Shellie's brother, David Dean Jr.

Shellie, 26, and her father arrived on Monday with a truck and a trailer to remove her belongings from the house after she filed for divorce last week.

Zimmerman was acquitted on July 13 of murdering Martin as the 17-year-old walked back to the townhouse where he was staying after buying snacks at a nearby convenience store. Zimmerman said he shot Martin in February 2012 in self-defense.

The shooting and trial in the central Florida town of Sanford polarized the U.S. public on issues of race, gun laws and self-defense laws.

Zimmerman's life has been tumultuous since his acquittal. Family friends say he left central Florida shortly after the trial.

He has twice been stopped for speeding in recent weeks.

Zimmerman, who has shown himself to be an authentic dim-whiitted, moron and public menace continuously makes headlines for his poor decision making. Fortunately, no one else has yet died as a result of his bad choices, but his grandiose display of stupidity and disrespect is worth noting just the same. 

Indeed, Trayvon Martin’s killer recently visited Kel-Tec, the gun makers behind the very PF-9 pistol Zimmerman used to kill Trayvon.

His visit included a tour of the facilities and a photo-op with the owner and his son. But wait, it gets better, he bought a shot gun. Not surprisingly, a representative, attorney Mark O’Mara, who served as part of Zimmerman’s legal team, issued a statement creating distance between himself and Zimmerman’s tacky field trip.

After going to trial and getting away with murder, this was definitely a disgusting move. Even if he believes that he was right in his actions that night, Trayvon Martin's parents have still lost their child.

Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce recently telling local media that the trial had strained their marriage of six years.

John Donnelly, a family friend who testified in George Zimmerman's defense at trial, said that Shellie was "devastated" when her husband "just packed up and left" after his acquittal.

Shellie had lost touch with him and had grown increasingly upset, Donnelly said.

It seems as if every week a new story unfolds with Zimmerman as its main character. A new narrative fraught with malfeasants, ineptitude, and villainy.

Donald Trump said it best. (Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd write.) Trump said that George Zimmerman needs to disappear for the good of this country. When the most unreasonable man in the world has to be your voice of reason, it's a sure sign that your life is on a downward spiral.

Zimmerman has become the Conservatives O.J. Simpson. They defended him much like African-Americans defended O.J., only to be embarrassed by his lack of self control, bad judgement, and narcissism. 

George Zimmerman is self destructing. Imploding right before our very eyes. He is doing more damage to himself than a guilty verdict, protests, and ridicule could ever do. This may not be the Christian thing to write, or think, but I take great delight in watching George Zimmermans slow unraveling. Justice delayed is not justice denied. Not mans way, but God's way.
