It’s apparent to anyone paying attention that the NSA spying uncovered a lot of dirt on a lot of republican politicians.
I don’t think Zimmerman should get his gun back, but that is the state of Florida’s call.
They never gave me back mine after my husband shot himself with it.
I guess that is how FL does things.
I suppose i could demand it back, but I have a doggie whom I love.
It’s not really Florida, per se, who is doing this, they are taking orders from the US Attorney General.
Oh...OK...Does that make it OK then?
Uhmmm, why shouldn’t he get his lawful property, that he is legally entitled to, back from the state? Believe me, I’m ALL EARS on this one.
The 5th amendment applies to the Federal Government, not to the states. However, the Supreme Court has held that most Bill of Rights protections were “incorporated” into the 14th amendment due process clause & therefore apply to the states through the 14th.
I never said that, I was only telling you why he hasn’t had his property returned to him as he should have.
LOL...I was just being sarcastic. Should have included a tag!
No harm...no foul.
Why are you in such a hurry to hustle Mr. Zimmerman out of the country?
Stand your ground!
Not all! Just saw Congressman King of Iowa speak out strongly in support if the Zimmerman jury and their verdict.
I just want him to have the right to go if he needs to..
do you want him to remain a prisoner in his own cou ntry where Holder and Obama can have him killed by their goons at any time ???
or do you want him to make his own choices if the need arises ???
Do we know for sure that Zimmerman hasn’t already gotten his gun back? I’d think that would be something his lawyers would have demanded right after the acquittal. Why wouldn’t he have gotten ALL his personal property returned to him immediately? Or at least by noon on the Monday after the verdict to allow for the evidence locker’s closure over the weekend.
Thats Awesome! Where did he speak on the floor on a TV show?
Speaking of RAT bastard coward Gov Scott, what is his take on the jury acquital of GZ? I suspect Gov Scott is also not abiding by the jury decision in light of Angela Corey's post trial histronics & slander against GM calling him a "murderer" even though the jury said otherwise.
If Gov Scott had any balls at all, he would hold a press conf, declare this whole sorry fiasco over & done with, terminate Angela Corey, and commit round the clock state trooper protection for GM. And then sit back and enjoy the liberal & racist heads exploding. What a pandering coward Gov Scott is!
Let's see if Pam Bondi, Jeb Bush, et. al., will shamelessly fold like a cheap suit once again. No reason to think they won't.
Didst thou forget a certain Florida US Senator from Cuba?
The DOJ has absolutely no jurisdiction. The man was found innocent, and thus has the right to retain his gun.
Somebody in Florida, please loan a gun to George until he gets his own back. I would!
“his lawful property”
Your damned right! I expect his defense team may still be de-compressing, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see a letter next week promising a writ for replevin along with a promise of a conversion suit with a demand for attorney fees, treble damages and whatever other damages allowed by the great state of Florida.
The ferals are out of control on the subject of George Zimmerman.
First, malicious prosecution and now this! It’s almost time to bring them some pain.
Go get ‘em George!
He needs the gun so that it can be sold to Mexican drug traffickers in Mexico. The government could use the money, and the funding for this sort of thing has dried up because of the sequester and all of that nasty negative publicity...
Zimmerman was innocent but he handled himself badly in the incident. His clumsiness made the situation deadly.
And the DOJ is federal government.
However, the Supreme Court has held that most Bill of Rights protections were incorporated into the 14th amendment due process clause & therefore apply to the states through the 14th.
I rather hate incorporation — it's some magical operation used to subdue the States. Consider the 1st Amendment, it is quite cleat that it applies to Congress, most states don't have a congress but
incorporation makes the text magically change into 'legislature' and then applied to the states.
No you are not.
And what about the Ft. Hood killer???
I guess you mean Rubio. Actually, I didn’t know he played a part in this, but I can’t say I’m surprised.
Worth repeating. Everyone needs to understand this.
We are past the point of saving this country by "legal" methods.
So because you think he handled himself badly and was clumsy or something he doesn’t get his weapon and other possessions back? Wow. Am I still on FreeRepublic? Dayum.
He defended his life and acted completely fine. Are you sick in the head?
*meant without a lawyer
The only thing that made the situation deadly was Trayvon Martin's persistence in bashing George Zimmerman's head for 45+ seconds. Had Trayvon Martin not decided to do that, he'd still be alive.
Plant him on a pike.
Holder has no authority to prevent the rightful return of property.
At this point they are just admitting that they are going to handle this situation by continually busting George Zimmermans balls until they kill him or he commits suicide.
I would have left the country immediately myself, assuming they immediately return his passport.
“DOJ Wont Give Back Zimmermans Gun”
Don’t be surprised if it turns up in Mexico sometime in the near future.
Zimmerman should have identified himself as an armed neighborhood watch and pulled his piece at the beginning. One of the best uses of a firearm is to defuse a situation. Martin attacked Zimmerman because he thought he could get away with it he didn’t recognize the danger.
I don’t quite know where you got the notion I thought Zimmerman should lose his “other posessions”.
Pretty much figured Holder has no authority to withhold personal property without legal cause. However, if Zim wants the same gun, the Kel Tec PF9, he can find the cost of one a little over $300. ...If he can find one available.
If you think for a minute you might realize that the situation should have never gotten to that point where anyone was defending their life.
Had Martin known that Zimmerman was armed, Martin probably still be alive too.
Concealed carry is not always a good thing Zimmerman's gun should have been visible to Martin BEFORE the attack took place.
Please explain to me why you think he shouldn’t have his legally-purchased and owned pistol returned to him now that he has been acquitted and is no longer under any charges. Also, you do know that the HOA approved the neighborhood watch that he was the leader of, right? He wasn’t the “self-appointed” neighborhood watchman that the media and racialists make him out to be. Perhaps you should review the videos or transcripts of the trial.
You forgot to include the rest of the Obama administration.
Alright give him his gun back but don’t let him carry it in public concealed. The man acted weak, inept and stupid.
Stalking around in the dark after a suspect with no flashlight and your gun in your pocket is an invitation to be jumped.
He has a state-issued license to carry concealed. You do know this is Free Republic, right? And you’ve been here how long? Maybe read the constitution this weekend.
I know very well what Free Republic is, I’ve been here awhile. We should all have the right to own a gun, but not all people should be allowed to go around armed. Had Martin been armed there would be an unsolved murder in Sanford, Zimmerman’s.
GZ acted in self defense because he had to as the last act of a farce. He is not a hero to me.
