Zimmerman won't be charged in alleged domestic incident with girlfriend

Florida prosecutors say they will not file domestic violence charges against George Zimmerman after he was arrested in an incident with his girlfriend last month.

Zimmerman, who was acquitted earlier this year in the highly-publicized murder trial of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following the Nov. 18 incident at the central Florida house he shared with Samantha Scheibe.

Schiebe told authorities Zimmerman had threatened her with a gun, but in a sworn affidavit last week recanted her claims, and asked for the charges to be dropped.

I’m starting to think he might be innocent and is being repeatedly set up. Or he’s the luckiest man on Earth and should run and buy a lottery ticket.

In an honest world, she'd be charged with filing a false police report.

Will the police return his guns? He’s likely to need them, what with the entire liberal establishment encouraging the hoodies to kill him, any chance they get.

Dear George,

You are being watched 24/7 for any little slip-up. Remember this when you consider doing something stupid.

Does this decision have anything to do with the fact that she stated publicly - yesterday - that the whole thing was made-up BS?

Looks and smells like a set-up. Zimmerman should get out of Florida and lay low until his value to the leftmedia has subsided. Until then, everything he does will be fodder for the left to use against him. They are dying to see Zimmerman do what O.J. Simpson did and commit some petty crime that they can use to send him to prison for years as revenge for the Travon Martin Not Guilty verdict. George needs to be a model citizen and choose his friends wisely from now on.

My understanding is that they still have his PF-9.
In most jurisdictions, if police take possession of your gun, for any reason at all, you have to initiate a legal action to have it returned. Very frequently it’s cheaper to buy a new one.

Florida prosecutors will not charge George Zimmerman after a domestic dispute with his girlfriend last month, State Attorney Phil Archer said Wednesday.

The decision not to pursue the case comes days after Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, said in a court document that she didn’t want him to be charged.

“Upon reviewing the recent affidavit of the Ms. Scheibe and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution,” Archer said in a prepared statement.

Zimmerman was arrested on Nov. 18 at Scheibe’s Apopka, Fla., home after the two had a heated fight. According to a police report about the incident, Scheibe said that after an argument, Zimmerman broke a table with a shotgun and then pointed it at her “for a minute.”

Police said he was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of domestic violence battery and criminal mischief — accusations that Zimmerman denied.

“I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to the police,” Scheibe said in a signed affidavit this week. “I do not feel that the arrest report accurately recounts what happened.”

Zimmerman needs to leave the country. He isn't safe here. Every gangsta wannabe in the country is out to get him.

I wonder if any of his mother's relatives in Peru would put him up for a few months?

I think its more likely the girlfriend got emotional and wanted to get a little revenge, knowing how the media will side with her. When she realize she could be charged for false filing, she backed down

No one in the media took the bait for her story, so now she wants him back in case he wins the NBC case & tons of money, IMO.

Zimmerman can't seem to get his head on straight....(& who can blame him)

I wish his brother or parents would do an intervention and spirit him far away to renew himself.

Sounds like the local Law and DA want to corral GZ in any way possible. Egg on their face with the acquittal and all that. They need to be careful because GZ is a high-profile personage.

Harrassment of civil rights might be easily proven here.

My advice for GZ:
1) For the time being at least have *nothing* to do with firearms.Let things cool down for a year or two before possessing them again

2) Any woman with whom you become involved must undergo a complete background check and psych evaluation.

3)If there's even an ounce of truth to any of the accusations that have been made against you since your verdict get help.Take every anger management course you can find.

4)Work diligently to get that huge cash judgment from NBC News (and others) to which you're fully entitled.

In an honest world, she'd be charged with filing a false police report.

If her statements were coerced, or grossly misunderstood, as she says, then the investigators should be charged with false arrest.

The charges were always “alleged”, not a shred of proof was ever produced.

And yes, George is being persecuted by the local police for his “nonconformity”. George Zimmerman does not fit into any convenient slot, so he is automatically presumed guilty, therefore any protestations of innocence or facts to the contrary are rigorously and firmly ignored.

Has anybody noticed that the local police forces are becoming more and more like a domestic army, much more quick to shoot first and ask questions only long after the fact? There is a growing militarization of the police corps at all levels, up to and including local “terror squads” that imprison people in their homes, and denying any participation by citizens in bringing a fleeing criminal to a stop. This includes such anti-libertarian attitudes as disarming legal owners, arresting the VICTIM who fights back against the perpetrator, and seemingly taking the side of the criminal in assaults.

Number one example was the rundown of the woman who was shot by the Capitol police in DC only recently. There are plenty more instances, but it seems that the police have declared a state of martial law almost unilaterally, if not everywhere, enough so that distrust of the uniform becomes a much greater issue than ever.
