Pretty strange that Zimmerman had a fire extinguisher with him. I guess he’s a wannabe fireman too. He should have stayed in his car and called fire rescue. /sarc
I don’t carry one but a lot of folks keep items like that handy.
What's so strange about that? Lots o people carry fire extinguishers in their cars, and certainly anyone trained as an emergency helper or scou leader might have one. In the days before fire extinguishers were cheap and readily available to the public, people were encouraged to carry a box of baking soda in their glove compartments. My uncle grabbed his soda and doused an engine fire in the car ahead of him in an intersection one time.
The real question is "was it registered?" and "was he licensed to carry it?"
Did it have the proper amount of propellant so as to put out the fire without being a hazard to bystanders?
It's possible that the DOJ may seek the records of this incident and add this to their federal case against Zimmerman.
Meanwhile the DOT in conjunction with the NAACP is advising drivers to slow down in the area of Sanford so as to prevent incidents like this.
