Lake Mary police chief agrees with angry email then backpedals
Apparently Zimmerman does not have a friend in his local police chief. Steve Bracknell, who heads the department in Lake Mary, Florida, where Zimmerman lives, agreed with some pretty intense criticisms of the acquitted killer contained in two angry emails he received Tuesday about Zimmerman's recent altercation with his wife. "Zimmerman is a Sandy Hook, Aurora waiting to happen," the emailer, Santiago Rodriguez, asserted, in an email posted online. "Your job is to protect the communities you serve, and you are failing big time."
Bracknell responded with a lengthy defense of his department, but then threw in, "Your reference to Sandy Hook..............I agree." (Ellipses his.) Bracknell confirmed the emails' authenticity for Think Progress, but later backpedaled from the remarks, telling WTSP that he only meant that Zimmerman "seems to be involved in incidents" involving guns. In the followup email, Rodriguez called Zimmerman a "ticking time bomb." Think Progress reports that Bracknell replied, "on a personal note....I agree," but that email doesn't appear to be posted online. And on Monday, Bracknell had this to say to an LA reporter, per the Los Angeles Times: "Man, it would be fantastic if you have an apartment out there [in California] for George Zimmerman. This guy is killing me."
Why is he saying GZ punched the father when the police report says bodyguard Wes admitted his forearm hit the fathers nose when breaking the 2 people up after the father lunged at GZ twice?
I've alway turned down jobs in Flori-DUH for several reasons, one being the legal system there.
Here’s Mr Dean from back in 1991:
Wow! Great find Uncle Chip. I can see why he would be capable of jumping GZ twice.
The media and Obama have ruined George Zimmerman’s life.
He should leave florida, change his name, lose some weight, and have a little nip and tuck done so he doesn’t look like George Zimmerman.
Try and start new someplace else like Montana or Idaho.
the life he had is over, and no amount of anything is going to fix it.
Post #21 about Bracknell’s problems with the truth is also interesting.
The entire incident could have been avoided if George had just driven by when he saw his wife’s truck in the driveway and returned an hour later when she was gone.
So he shouldn’t have gotten outa da car???
I just got done reading it. Thanks for the ping. For sure that article makes him look like he has trouble with the truth. He obviously is contradicting what his officers police report says. They are getting bombarded with mail but all they have to do is refer to the police report and back their officers at the scene with a standard form letter to all who are writing in to the deparment.
Unfortunately....most law enforcement heads are Big Government liberals
Shellie Zimmerman’s iPad so damaged there is only 5% chance of getting video
Lake Mary police don’t want to deal with this and who can blame them.
I’m sure by now the video is almost unrecoverable and with a few good well-placed whacks and a little mishandling it should be totally unrecoverable. And who would know and who would really care.
The question now is who will they give it back to or should the IPAD just be destroyed to avoid any future repercussions??
LOL! Well...since they both own the ipad and are getting a divorce, since Fla. divides the property down the middle and it is already divided for them (snicker) give each one half of the pieces.
No, it's the liars in the press who are killing you and you can't handle it.
The letter to the chief said they are contacting the INJUSTICE DEPT. to investigate the Lake Mary PD. They cannot stand the fact the the DOJ couldn’t get him over the Sanford incident and no idiot has called in with credible evidence he is a racist. This is a good view of the low lifes on the left and how rabidly evil they are.
So true. Like to Idaho or Montana.
The beating GZ took from Trayvon was like a bop on head [from a foam bat] compared to the savage abuse he suffered at the hands of the media, race-baiters, legal system and all manner of agenda-driven bullies eager to pile on.
Mental, relentless gang rape is what it was/is. Besides PTSD they probably caused him to be afflicted by an adult variant of Reactive Attachment Disorder.
I pray he can pull through.
