Info on Robert Zimmerman - George's dad (vanity)

Posted on 03/26/2012 12:15:02 PM PDT by TigerClaws

George is a Democrat. His father apparently is a retired US Magistrate judge.

Anyone have info on who appointed the father?

Height of irony that Dems are branding this Hispanic Democrat as a redneck Tea Partier.

PS Yes, we all know Bob Dylan's real name. Different guy!

The Left never minds throwing an individual Dem under the bus if it will serve a larger cause.

Zimmerman means carpenter in German. ("Zimmer" is a hammer, I believe, and so it literally is a "hammer man". I think, I don't speak German.

Anyway, the name can be Jewish or German. In this Zimmerman's case, I believe it is German.

Don't forget who our best known Zimmer Man is! We need his help now, before the hatred causes more death and tears us farther apart.

In Manassas, Va., where Zimmerman lived in the 1980s and 1990s with his parents and two siblings, neighbors tended to define the family based on their spiritual profile. “Very Catholic ... very religious,” their neighbor Jim Rudzenski recalled Thursday. The children attended All Saints Catholic School through the eighth grade before going to Osbourn High School. George became an altar server and evening receptionist at All Saints Catholic Church.

Strict upbringing

The father, Robert Zimmerman, is a retired military man. He could be strict. And the children’s grandmother, who lived with the family, also kept a watchful eye, said Kay Hall, who lived across the street from the Zimmermans for about 20 years. George and his siblings “didn’t play with the neighborhood kids,” Rudzenski said. “They had to stay home and play.” It was always “Yes, ma’am,” “No, ma’am,” Hall said.

Zimmerman’s life was not without difficulties. In 2001, when he was 17 or 18, he was the victim of a minor criminal assault, said Manassas police Sgt. Eddie Rivera. The city’s computer records do not provide details.

Zimmerman said his father was a magistrate for Virginia Supreme Court and mother was a deputy court clerk. He stated that he had the utmost respect for law enforcement and aspired to be an officer someday.

The only Federal Magistrate I could find with Zimmerman is a Bernard Zimmerman for the 9th Circuit who is retired and appointed by Clinton in ‘95. He was asked to continue hearing some cases due to the backlog of cases. I hope someone who is more skilled at this than me can find more. I feel like this is not the right guy.

Thanks. As I said, I don’t know German. A zimmerman is a carpenter, though, right? I was told that an ancestor changed their name from Zimmerman to Carpenter when they came to this country, back in the 1700s.

You are correct, the word “zimmerman” is used in German to describe a finish carpenter, the one who does all the detailed, inside work.

I think you've got it. He retired from the US District Court in Virginia. Nepotism is as old as time. I'm hvg a investigative journalist confirm this as well. I wonder what kind of trouble Boy George got in that he got off easy for. There are so many people here hating Trayvon and giving George a pass.

We should know better after Casey Anthony got away with murder.

I very much don't want this to become a black v. white fiasco.

This is for anyone on this thread. Wss it legal for records to release Trayvon's record? I thought minors' records were sealed in addition to Trayvon's right to privacy even though he's deceased.

Magistrate System
About

In many instances, a citizen’s first contact with Virginia’s Judicial System comes through the office of the Magistrate. A principal function of the magistrate is to provide an independent, unbiased review of complaints of criminal conduct brought to the office by law enforcement or the general public. Magistrate duties include issuing various types of processes such as arrest warrants, summonses, bonds, search warrants, subpoenas, and certain civil warrants. Magistrates also conduct bail hearings in instances in which an individual is arrested on a warrant charging him or her with a criminal offense. Magistrates provide services on an around-the-clock basis, conducting hearings in person or through the use of videoconferencing systems.

The magistrate system for the Commonwealth is divided into eight regions, and each magistrate is authorized to exercise his or her powers throughout the magisterial region for which he or she is appointed. Each region is comprised of between three and five judicial districts. There are magistrate offices located throughout Virginia, including at least one in each of Virginia’s 32 judicial districts.

Government officials learning Spanish to officiate at Hispanic weddings

Journal Gazette, The (Fort Wayne, IN) - Monday, September 16, 2002

Author: Paul Glader Washington Post

Removing a language barrier couldn’t erase the nuptial jitters for Andres Jimenez Moritz, who married a more relaxed and smiling Noelia Madueno Prado recently in the old Prince William County, Va., Courthouse.

The 21-year-old bridegroom’s fingers fidgeted nervously, and he shifted back and forth in his dark dress shoes as he and his young immigrant sweetheart exchanged vows and simple rings at the instruction of Gladys Zimmerman , a Spanish-speaking civil celebrant.

“Puede besar a la novia,” said Zimmerman, closing the five-minute ceremony with the traditional phrase in Spanish that allows the bride and groom to kiss.

(snip)

With Hispanic populations rising sharply, counties such as Prince William and Maryland’s Montgomery have hired Spanish-speaking civil celebrants like Zimmerman to perform weddings.

Immigrants in Loudoun, Va., and Maryland’s Prince George’s counties, however, must take a friend along to interpret or bluff through a ceremony with broken English and charades, an embarrassing experience for all parties.

David Mabie, Prince William’s clerk of courts, said he fumbled through ceremonies in that fashion in the late 1980s.

(snip)

Prince William’s Hispanic population grew from 10,000 in 1990 to 17,600 in 2000, and Mabie knew something had to change. So he hired Zimmerman from another department of the courts in 1995 and made her a deputy clerk and civil celebrant. Zimmerman, a native of Peru, performs as many as five Spanish-language ceremonies a day.

(snip)

Link from DU. They did some homework on daddy - just copying it. Zimmerman's dad is his attorney if you believe DU. Zimmerman's arrest records are here too.

IF the media isn't reporting that his dad is representing him or that he was ever a judge, the media's involved in a coverup. The internet will need to do the real investigative journalism.

If George's dad has been arond Sanford police since 1991, that's time to have lots of dirt on the entire police dept. Of course they don't want to go for an arraignment. Then everyone would know his daddy's his attorney and if dad has ties to the Sanford PD, that may be a huge conflict of interest.

Dad is holdilng what amounts to Hilary's FBI files only on a smaller scale imo.

It was reported local news that several PD from Sanford’s kids beat up some black kids. I wonder and will try to determine if there is a relationship between Chief Lee and daddy. Maybe they went to a charity event or fundraiser together. Sometimes, searching images works. There’s no way to know what’s been pulled from the net by now.

Now,now, I am not a member of DU. We’ve always since I’m been here been able to post DU here. We’re all looking for answers and I’m not posting from the DU about how great Barack Obama is cuz he needs to get voted out. We are doing research and you are mean to me and I don’t know you from a hole in the ground.

Thanks. I go there and occasionally find useful info - and a laugh.

Magistrate. Thought it was US appointed by Pres but no.

George is a Dem. Would be classic if Clinton or even Obummer had appointed the dad to office. No such luck.
