George Zimmerman, Free From Jail, Can Get His Guns Back
Epoch Times ^ | December 15, 2013 | Zachary Stieber

Posted on 12/15/2013 4:47:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

George Zimmerman, who is now a free man again after girlfriend Samantha Scheibe declined to press charges for an alleged domestic abuse in November, will be getting his guns and ammo back.

Zimmerman vaulted into notoriety when he killed an unarmed black teen, Trayvon Martin, in Febuary 2012 in Florida.

He was acquitted of wrongdoing by a jury in September 2013, but has gotten into trouble multiple times since then, such as getting pulled over for speeding three times, and after spats with both his wife and his girlfriend.

Since Scheibe refused to testify against Zimmerman after initially saying Zimmerman abused her and threatened her with a shotgun.

That means Zimmerman will get back his full cache, law enforcement sources told TMZ.

The cache includes three black handgun holsters, 2 Taurus 9mm handguns, 1 Glock 19 handgun, and a Kel-Tec 12 guage shotgun.

Zimmerman also got back a flashlight, pocket knife, and two cell phones that were on him when he was arrested, among other items.

Zimmerman is free to pick up all the seized items at his convenience.

Convictions, Zachary, how many convictions? Arrests mean nothing, as the Left keeps reminding us in the case of obviously minority "alleged" criminals.

They keep on tossing frivolous lawsuits at him and he keeps not quitting.

IF the man has an ounce of sense, he will lie low for a year or two.

Not one person has filed a “lawsuit” against Mr. Zimmerman that I’m aware of. He has had CRIMINAL CHARGES filed against him in numerous instances, of which he has been repeatedly exonerated or had the charges dropped. So no, he has almost NOTHING in common with Governor Sarah Palin, despite your sophomoric insinuations.

Where’s the assault rifle they claimed he had...an AR-15 (not an AK-47).

A freeper pointed out that Trayvon Martin is the Horst Wessel of America. Therefore, I think there should be a Trayvon Martin Lied for Soviet America (USSA). Just as the Nazis had their Horst Wessel Lied

I'll see what can be done about it.

George, get your stuff and go ghost. Find a friend in the ozarks, or the badlands or out in Alaska somewhere and get off the grid. Stay low for a couple of years.

I feel the need to answer his slurs against a female conservative leader rather than let them sit there unanswered and assumed true. It’s called chivalry and I am in the last generation that was taught that in any large numbers, I suppose.

One report I heard was he was at the girlfriend’s house to pick up his stuff because he was leaving the state and the situation happened. I hope that is true and he actually does leave there and find solitude in this vast country and that he doesn’t take another nutsy woman with him.

"IF the man has an ounce of sense, he will lie low for a year or two."

There have been a number of opportunities for him to do exactly that. But he hasn't.

This isn't encouraging.

He could have risen to the occasion and gotten lost.

The Ballad of Trayvon Martin
by Will Hoge

Trayvon Martin was a young black kid
Doing the same things that we all did
Outside walking down the streets alone
Just talking to a girl on the telephone

Mindin’ his business not doing nothin’ wrong
But then George Zimmerman had to come along
Self-appointed wanna be police man
With a 911 call and a pistol in his hand

Oh, chariots swing low
Come to take another of your angels home
Underneath that February moon
Another of your brothers going away too soon

George told the cops the kid’s on drugs
But what he really wants to say is black kids are thugs
The dispatcher says not to take no stand
But he’s gonna take matters into his own hands

Trayvon tells the girl that there’s some guy
That’s following him around and he don’t know why
She says to hang up the phone and run
But the next thing you hear is the ringing of a gun

Neighbors call the cops ‘cause they hear screams
Another black child never gets out of his teens
Zimmerman claims that it was self defense
So the police chief leads and ignores the evidence

Oh, chariots swing low
Come to take another of your angel home
Underneath that February moon
Another of your brothers gone away too soon

So Zimmerman goes free and the country cries
‘Cause we’re still shackled by the hatred and the lies
Now we’ve got to stick together to see justice done
March out of the darkness to the rising sun

Oh, chariots swing low
Come to take another of your angel home
Underneath that February moon
Another of your brothers gone away too soon

Oh, chariots swing low
Come to take another of your angel home
Underneath that February moon
Another of your brothers gone away too soon

**********
The Ballad Of Trayvon Martin | The Last Internationale

The Ballad of Trayvon Martin
lyrics:
come gather ‘round friends
let me tell you a tale
of a young man whose name
we’ve come to know well

he was Trayvon Martin
only 17 years of age
another black kid murdered
in the ol’ U S of A

chorus:
you’ve seen it all before
the few who rise, the rest that fall
you know you’ve seen it all before
you say it’s not your fight
It’s not your war

on a February night
down in Florida state
at a retreat he was stayin’
they call the twin lakes
he made the mistake
to walk beyond the gates
where the timid reside
and for that he has died
with no rights and no trial
no chance to survive
he was just a child
until the killer arrived
put one in his chest
and you know what comes next
the jury acquits
betrays the blood that’s been spilt
and somewhere a mother cries
with a void that can never be filled

(chorus)

George Zimmerman,
we’ll always remember the name
as the one who killed
then walked without shame
a few you have fooled
for the case you have won
but the people know better
your judgement will come

some say he’s just
a pawn in their game
yeah, you can say
that he’s not to blame
but the one who pulled the trigger
is still free with his name
and without justice delivered
you can die just the same

(chorus)

from Nat Turner and Crazy Horse to Malcolm and King
Medgar Evers to Troy Davis and the countless unnamed
it’s the same bullet, same system, same game
the same reason why Trayvon died in vain

If the media wanted you in prison you’d be “in the news” regularly too. Or do you think it’s all George? And if so, why haven’t they pinned something on him yet?

Boy, you aren’t kidding.

He is crazy, as far as I am concerned. I would have moved out of that state to ANYWHERE, put my guns in a safe place (except one to protect myself from liberal lunatics) and I DEFINITELY would avoid women (or at least the kind he seems to keep hooking up with) for a long time.

He should be (and should have been) laying low.

If I Were Him, and this is just ME!

I would DISAPPEAR!!

Go get a gig in downtown NOWHERE, flipping burghers for MickyDees.

Live in a FLOP HOUSE, Become ANONYMOUS.

Find a very stupid bimbo squeeze who doesn’t know who in hell I am.

And LAY THE EFF LOW FOR AT LEAST 2 YEARS.

The ONLY reason this beeyatch cancelled charges against him, she realized that her damn 15 minutes of fame RAN OUT when he got busted.

George, you are EFFED UP. Take a BREATHER BOY.

Talk to Bernie Goetz. When the going gets tough, the tough hide out.

Speaking of violence - have you seen this?

http://www.infowars.com/media-works-to-keep-mass-shooters-profiles-secret/

The shooters? All left wingers....

In the wake of recent high-profile shootings, the media can almost immediately be seen attempting to link deranged shooters with the political right. As facts come in, the desire to connect shooters to their political ideologies quickly erodes, as the same anti-depressant taking, left-wing, occultist profile emerges.

Yep, and stay away from women while he's at it. He's either got a real talent for picking losers who are out to make a name for themselves by either being with him, or he really is doing all this stupid shit and is about to get into a world of trouble.

I'm not sure which it is, but the guy better get a handle on his life before it spins completely out of control.

“George doesn’t seem to be that bright.”

I think he is doing pretty well considering all the trouble that he is in.

Through no fault of his own, he is thrown into the national spotlight and made to be the sacrificial goat to elect Barry and increase black rage.

He beat them.

With incessant pressure on him by the media, constant death threats, and half the country thinking he is a crazed killer, his marriage fails. He manages to avoid DV charges.

He hooks up with a woman who is outwardly attractive, figures out she is a nut-case, is leaving her when she goes batsit crazy. He is charged, he is vindicated.

Yes, tell me how he is not very bright. Few could do as well as he has done under the circumstances.

Who knows why you just had to make that lean,
who knows why you became part of the gangsta scene,
who knows who sold you all them blunts,
who understood your whistles and your grunts,
who made you assault the neighborhood watch,
whose jewelry was that you were caught w/at school
who made you act the ghetto fool?

Why didn’t your Crip daddy stick around,
whose head on the pavement did you pound,
who had to make a decision that fateful night,
when you left him no escape and picked a fight,
who made the choice to mock and sass,
an armed watchman (you called “creepy ass”),
who could’ve gone home but didn’t there go,
instead walked towards a six foot deep hole.

They just said on the local news here in Orlando that Mama Travon & Daddy Travon are going to write a book.
Guess the money ran out.
They said they wanted the truth about Travon to come out.

If they do write a book, you can bet the farm it will be anything BUT the TRUTH.
They wouldn't dare print the TRUTH about the Thug.
