100+ bullets when arrested

Associated Press, by Staff

SANFORD, Fla. — George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month on domestic violence charges, according to court documents released Tuesday. A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriend´s house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table. Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges

So What!! All the threats made against his life by negro thuggish malcontent racists probably made him paranoid. Maybe Zimmerman should sue the negro film director Spike Lee and some other negro talk show hosts who actively stirred the race hate against him! Zimmerman is a victim of the "Ebonics Culture" advocacy that permeates today´s American society.

What a turkey this guy is!

If he lands in some Florida slammer the feral ghetto population that is always present will probably murder him.

From what I read the "victim" girlfriend was shopping around the media to sell her story before this incident... Mighty suspicious to me, but Zimmerman should know better.....

He is making himself harder to support. He needs to leave the country and stay away from women and guns for at least a few years if he hopes to stay out of prison.

Only 100+ rounds? That´s just a start on what someone should have. Is Zimmerman being targeted by the cops, or is he sort of going off the rails? Has anyone ever read "The Onion Field" by Joseph Wambaugh (The Blue Knight; Police Story)? It details what happened to a cop who went through a traumatic, life-threatening situation. Run-ins with the authorities can almost be expected. In short, PTSD.

Owning weapons is not against the law. He is not a convicted felon...in fact, he has not committed a crime. The media will hound him until he does. Please, George, leave Florida and move somewhere you can be anonymous. You owe it to yourself.

How many were out there ready do kill him? How many to collect on the bounty put on his head by the New Black Panthers?

Many hunters have arsenals that would put his to shame and no one is out for their head.

Re #10, I´ll betcha that most of the cluckers here don´t know tht a round of ammunition = one bullet.

Nor do they probably know his story, how threatened his life continues to be, and that this latest bimbo set him up.

But still they cluck.

I never liked this guy. He stalked the Martin boy, he was looking for a fight, and he got it. He was looking for a reason to use his gun, and he found it.

And it´s clear since the trial that Zimmerman is a trigger happy goon always looking for trouble. Well, he got it.

~~The search warrant says Zimmerman told deputies a different version of events. He said that Scheibe and he had agreed to separate and that he was planning to move to Texas. But as he gathered his belongings, Zimmerman said Scheibe became upset and threw a handgun and the shotgun on the floor.

The weapons were locked in a soft-sided case with a combination lock when deputies arrived, according to the warrant. In addition to the shotgun and AR-15 rifle, the warrant says Zimmerman had three handguns: a Glock 19, a Taurus 9mm and an Interarms .380-caliber. Deputies also collected two cellphones, a pocket knife and a flashlight, among other items.

AP puts this part of the story towards the bottom....

FTA: Deputies also collected two cellphones, a pocket knife and a flashlight, among other items.

Okay. I´ll admit to being stupid: why would the cops "collect" --read: confiscate, cell phones and a flashlight?

No doubt they confiscated the weapons, which as long as he in not a convicted felon, the cops will have to return to him when the domestic case is adjudicated. He´s only charged with a misdemeanor, not a felony, and even if convicted [which he won´t be] on the misdemeanor, he gets the weapons back.

Seriously. The man needs to get out of Florida --as far away as he can get and still remain in the continental United States.

I would never condone domestic violence, but I don´t believe that´s what´s happening with Zimmerman. Not in this case. I would not be surprised to learn that not only was this woman shopping her story for $$$$ before the incident, but that she was put up to [hired to] snaring Zimmerman into a relationship so that she could set up a situation such as what he now finds himself in. She has known Zimmerman for a long, long time, and she would be the one someone might go to if they were trying to entrap Zimmerman. I´m not saying that´s what happened, but nothing would surprise me.

I hope some entity like Legal Insurrection is actually investigating this woman´s background.

Girlfriend said she was 6 wks prego when Zimmerman was packing to leave and had told her he would support the child. He had been planning to move out of State as well.
Next the girlfriend admits to police she is not prego. She and her mother shopping paid TV time with no takers.......then call to cops. Zimmermans call to 911 after hers said she broke her own glass table.

Somehow I´m more worried that DHS has appropriated billions of dollars to purchase guns and ammunition than Zimmerman´s having 5 guns and 100+ bullets. I feel secure Zimmerman´s stash will not be used against me and mine but I´m not so sure about DHS´ intentions.

He was not a felon and had every right to own guns.

The latest episode ensures that he doesn´t leave FL. His life will never be the same and he should have kept going west when they stopped him in TX.

Maybe one of his ´haters´ gave the girlfriend the right price.

Don´t bother going to the range with only 100 rounds. 100 rounds for each of the five weapons might make it a worthwhile trip.

While lawmakers skip out of Washington for spring break, the Capitol Rotunda is undergoing its first makeover in more than 50 years. With more than 1,300 cracks marring its exterior shell, the rotunda is closed to the public from April 12 through April 28, in phase one of the two-year, $60 million restoration project. During the 17-day closure, workers are installing safety netting around the iconic 8.9 million-pound cast iron dome.

Monstrous cruise ships that ruin the view – and even block out the sun – for people strolling down Venice’s Giudecca Canal, will, from the end of November, no longer pass close to the lagoon city, cruise ship owners have pledged. From that date vessels weighing over 96,000 tonnes will eschew the route that currently sees them pass close to St Mark’s Square, while, according to campaigners who want them banned, unleashing huge currents that threatens to undermine Venice’s delicate foundations. The Cruise Lines International Association made the pledge during talks on Thursday with Italy’s Transport and Environment Ministers. The development follows a

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come.

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,
