George Zimmerman was pulled over in Texas for speeding and let off with a verbal warming. But the first thing he did was tell the officer he had a gun in the glove box. I would have figured he did, but it’s good to know he’s carrying, especially with all the ginned-up outrage and death threats aimed at him.

INFORNEY – According to the police dashcam video obtained by inForney.com, Zimmerman made the Forney police officer aware of a firearm in his glove compartment at the beginning of the stop. After revealing the firearm, the police officer asked where Zimmerman was heading. Zimmerman replied, “nowhere in particular.” “Nowhere in particular, why is that?” responded the officer. “You didn’t see my name?” said Zimmerman. The officer then responded, “wow, what a coincidence.”

The officer then asked if he was clear of warrants to which Zimmerman replied, “absolutely.”

“Alright, I’m gonna go back and just check you, routinely. The reason you were stopped was for your speed, why don’t you slow down a little bit for me and, as long as you don’t have any warrants, I’ll cut you loose with a warning. Just take it easy, go ahead and shut your glove compartment and don’t play with your firearm, ok?” said the officer before returning to his vehicle.

After the warrant check came back clear, the officer returned Zimmerman’s license and registration and advised Zimmerman to “have a safe trip.” The entire duration of the stop was only a little over five minutes.

    Gee, let’s just tell the whole world where he is so all the crazy people who want to kill him will have a heads up.  Do we really need to know every single thing this man does now?  Can he have some privacy please?

    • Watchman74

      Pokerwife1 I imagine that’s why he was being ambiguous as to where he was going. Good forward thinking on his part.

  • Longiron

    Smart man to tell the police officer he was carrying a gun. I am sure he showed his carry permit as he should and went about his business. If he would have not said anything and the officer found it he would be in big trouble which he should be. Just following the law ????? Wonder if the officer asked for his autograph ?

  • Kelly60

    A conceal carry in Texas requires you to tell them you have a gun at the onset of communication with the officer.

    • tinlizzieowner

      Kelly60  
      Florida does too.

    • randyridesagain

      Kelly60 once again…….its legal in Texas to carry a concealed weapon in your vehicle without having a permit….just saying

      • Kelly60

        randyridesagain Kelly60 I have a CHL, I know the “castle” law as well.  My instructor indicated you MUST tell an officer when stopped…just sayin

  • AngryBadger

    The “lib sites” are making a big deal about his “nowhere in particular” response.  It is the perfect answer to the question “where are you heading?” or “what is your business here?”.  The local, state, and federal government can ask all they want but you don’t have to tell them where you are going or why you are going there.  To the libs, however, it is suspicious and a sign of evil-doing…

    • Watchman74

      AngryBadger Exactly, it’s not the officers business where he was headed and he probably knew it would make the news and didn’t want to broadcast it. If people wanted to do me harm I wouldn’t want them to know where I was going either.

      “The local, state, and federal government can ask all they want but you
      don’t have to tell them where you are going or why you are going there.” 
      Think not? Watch this. Zimmerman was just lucky he was in Texas, not NY.

      • AngryBadger

        tinlizzieowner AngryBadger Different scenario… the BP wanted to know what shops so their comrades on the way back could confiscate their Gouchi watches and they could split the loot.  The LEO in the GZ story didn’t have such a lucrative motivation…

      • PoCoTex

        tinlizzieowner AngryBadger  Don’t forget, in this context, foreigners – that includes Canadians, sadly – have no rights when coming into the U.S. As far as I know, the BP do need to ask that question and, personally, I see it as perfectly appropriate.
        As for an officer within the U.S. asking a U.S. citizen “Where are you headed”, the U.S. citizen is not obligated to answer the question, as far as I understand.

        • tinlizzieowner

          PoCoTex tinlizzieowner AngryBadger 
          You know, if the BP Agents on our southern border were half as aggressive (and arrogant) as these guys were, I might agree with you but it they were, ‘La Raza’ and the libs, would have them all looking for new jobs in a heartbeat.

      • Localmedia

        tinlizzieowner AngryBadger Border guards on the Canada-U.S. border have much more authority to question and detain you than any state police. As federal officers, both the American and Canadian border patrol officers, can hold you on the spot. Americans cannot carry guns across the border to Canada and they are confiscated on the spot. The officers are trained to ask very specific questions and look in eyes when the answers are given. No one crosses the border without a plan and how you answer them tells them a lot. They are also trained on how innocent people react. I’ve been across the Canada-U.S. border in 10 different places; I have my passport ready and give just the facts, no commentary on why they are asking dumb questions. As they ask, they are also looking at computer screens to match your current answers against your previous answers. At 3 am I’ve been asked for my keys and ordered to stay in my seat while an officer rummaged in my trunk. Everything I told him checked out and he even told me I didn’t have to pay duty on the 3 extra cases of beer I purchased (would have amounted to less than $6). That was at the crossing between Port Huron, Michigan and Sarnia, Ontario. based on my experience and what I’ve been told about crossing into Mexico, the U.S.-Canada border is tighter. The people in the Youtube are taking the whole experience too lightly. It’s standard to be asked where you’re going and why, and it’s also standard, since shortly after 9/11 to have your trunk searched almost every time. Right after 9/11 armed guns were aimed at your trunk while you were asked to open it. Personally, I feel more secure when things are handled this way.

        • tinlizzieowner

          Localmedia tinlizzieowner AngryBadger 
          Do you think that if a Border Patrol Agent on the southern border treated a Mexican citizen like that, he would have a job for long? ‘La Raza’ and the libs would be on him like syrup on pancakes and that’s just a fact.

        • Localmedia

          tinlizzieowner Localmedia AngryBadger Can’t speak for that, but I’ll take your word, and I understand there are cultural differences. What happens at the Canada-U.S. border is that both Americans and Canadians who aren’t used to being questioned by officials with real authority take it too lightly and too often get mouthy. That attitude quickly costs them.
          If you listen to how patient the US border agent on the Youtube clip inside the building is in trying to explain that he doesn’t have to answer questions (and he sure doesn’t) and how snippy the Canadian gets, you realize what a tough job these guys have.  And how naive the Canadian is.  Folks who live right along the border and who cross with any regularity know how to answer efficiently and get through. 
          For example, if you say at the Windsor-Detroit border crossing that you’re going across to see a baseball game, hockey game, football game, concert, etc. it’s obvious you will be asked to produce a ticket because most people have them ahead of time. If you’re buying at the gate or meeting a buddy who has the tickets, it’s best to tell that to an agent up front. Or be able to explain why you don’t have tickets without fumbling and shifting your eyes. It’s tough there because Canadians often cross to buy drugs, and cross back to ‘mule’ drugs. The border agents are trained how and whom to spot.

          Thirty-some years ago I had a buddy get all righteous about why should he have to show his ticket. It cost us 2 hours. He never rode with me again.
          At the Thousand Islands crossing I had an agent apologize when my turn came up for a full car inspection. I was sent into the office to be watched and two officers did everything but take off interior door panels. They had a video camera up under the dash, made sure my radio worked and even checked the station (and asked me what it was). They went through all my luggage and used a  sniffer dog. They told me all this afterwards; I wasn’t allowed to watch. But they watched my reaction when they told me. No problem, I hadn’t tried to mislead. (I asked for a copy of the under-the-dash video and they were the ones who fumbled. They said no one had ever asked that before.) 
          I believe they can hold you for at least 48 hours without charges if you’re a foreign national, so honesty is definitely the best policy. After, the agent said I hadn’t caused any “bells to go off” but was randomly picked by the computer. He says it’s one way the system prevents agents from showing favoritism. But the biggest thing for Americans to know is you can’t cross into Canada with a hand gun no matter what papers you have. Very strict on that. I believe there’s a different set of rules for hunters with long guns, but check first.

  • Brooklynman

    Nice officer to give him a warning.

  • nopenochange

    He should have told the officer to remind racist Eric Holder to stick the legal gun used to off Trayvon up his half -black butt. Glad he got a new one and smartly he moved to a better state where people respect law and vice versa. Texas is a big state with lots of law abiding citizens ready to protect themselves from Obamascum and liberal trash.

  • K-Bob

    Someone in the police station blabbed to the media. Scumbags are everywhere, it seems.
    I’m going to trust it wasn’t the cop.  He sounds like a standup guy.

  • freechic

    Texas is a class act.
    I’ve been let go with a warning as well.  I think the cops do a good job here.

  • Jeanne24

    How do we know that this is really George Zimmerman?  I just read the article but there is nothing that indicates that the truck pulled over is that of Zimmerman’s.  Did I miss something?  Is there a live video that has the exchange on it that shows that it is belonging to George Zimmerman?  It could be a diversion to make people think he is in Texas but he is really in another state.  Why would the police put him in jeopardy and let out his whereabouts so the public knows where he is located?   Just a thought!  I hope he is somewhere safe with his family and people just leave him alone so he get get some kind of new life started.

    • PatriotGeek1

      Jeanne24 I wondered the same thing.  With the officer saying “What a coincidence” I just assumed it wasn’t the same George Zimmerman.

      • Jeanne24

        PatriotGeek1 Jeanne24 We think alike I thought the same when he said “what a coincidence”  Maybe we should open up a P.I. office cos we both are looking a bit closer to the story than others LOL :D

      • surfcitysocalhb

        PatriotGeek1Jeanne24I agree. The what-a-coincidence remark, plus the odd going-nowhere-in-particular remark makes the story sound fishier and fishier.

        • Localmedia

          surfcitysocalhb PatriotGeek1 Jeanne24 Not at all. The cop was commenting on the fact that he had actually pulled over the well-known ‘George Zimmerman’. Not a real ‘coincidence’ but people misuse such terms all the time. I’ve been pulled over in Texas, with an out-of-state vehicle, with a burned out licence plate light, and never been treated better by a cop. If I were George I would’ve headed out-of-state, too.

  • sahorn1976

    I know that Police Uniform.  That is SAPD.

    • Localmedia

      sahorn1976 – SAPD? Many police uniforms are similar. What are you saying?

  • MsUnderestimate

    Cue the race-baiting liberal outrate in …3…2….

  • kong1967

    If Zimmerman ever gets attacked and uses his gun to defend himself, he will automatically be guilty of murder in the eyes of the press and the left.  Let’s hope that doesn’t happen, because…..like before….even if the police don’t press charges Holder and liberal prosecutors will push it anyway.

  • gitmo62

    The very first thing he (Zimmerman) would have done if he had a gun in the glove box would have been to show his CCW license and then tell the Officer he had a gun in glove box. There was no mention that his CCW was returned so I tend to believe this was not the Real Zimmerman or the story was a hoax

    • WilliamCourtier

      gitmo62 You are never required to show your CCW license to anyone of authority.  Trust me, if you have one the officer knows.  It flags to them automatically, anytime the officer runs a warrant check on the person.  As a responsible CCW holder, you just keep your hands visible and notify the officer as soon as he gets to the vehicle that there is a weapon in the vehicle as well as where it is.  In all honesty, though, it is not necessary for you to even declare the weapon if you are a CCW holder.  You aren’t required to inform the officer unless he asks.  But, it’s common sense and good practice to still do so. 
      I am a CCW carrier and routinely carry.  So, I have done a lot of research on this and have dealt with police while carrying on many occasions.

      • gitmo62

        WilliamCourtier gitmo62 I have both a Ohio CCW and a Florida CCW. My home State is Ohio. The Ohio CCW book states:As of Sept 30, 2011 you need to have your license available and a government ID if you are carring while driving. You roll down your window if stopped with your hands visable and calmly tell the officer you have a CCW license and that you have a handgun with you. You ask if he has any instructions for you
         I travel from State to State that have reciprocal agreements with Ohio and would comply with the OHIO procedure in other States.  If you don’t declare  you are carring in OHIO it is a FIRST DEGREE Misdemeanor and could result in the suspension of your CCW. If your make any attemp to touch your handgun unless in accordance with the Officers instructions it is a FELONY.  So you might want to do a little added research if you travel much

    • randyridesagain

      gitmo62 dont have to have a CCW to carry a firerm in your vehicle in Texas..

      • gitmo62

        randyridesagain gitmo62 If it is in the Glove Box it would be concealed. Wouldn’t you need a CCW to carry concealed

        • randyridesagain

          gitmo62 randyridesagain nope…….in Texas you are legally allowed to carry a concealed gun with or without a license inside your vehicle……..once you get out of the car yoou have to have a license to carry anywhere else other than to your home.

        • gitmo62

          randyridesagain gitmo62 Sounds good to me. I travel alot and would appreciate all States having a carry law like that.  My Ohio and Florida CCW is good in Texas so i really don’t have to worry.  I held a Texas Drivers license back in 1996-8 while RVing Fulltime, but then they made it hard to renew so got a Florida Drivers License

    • JohnQueue

      gitmo62 Another idiotic, ignorant reply…do some research, hmm?  oh and who likes it.. your like-minded libtard…socalhb…amazing, isn’t it?

      • gitmo62

        JohnQueue gitmo62 I did my research and have a CCW from 2 States (see comment above about OHIO CCW law) and happen to be a Tea Party Conservative so conceal your stupid comment where the sun don’t shine

    • NaomiBlue

      gitmo62 I don’t believe the DOJ confiscated his CCW. (I could be wrong as my memory is not as good as it once was.)

      • gitmo62

        NaomiBlue gitmo62 Neither is mine

  • Rshill7

    He should have his name changed. I would. 
    He could change it something like Gerald Fitzpatrick or Patrick Fitzgerald, even though neither fits Zimmerman :-)

    • Dukehoopsfan

      Rshill7 Someone (maybe you) suggested changing his name to Ben Ghazi and he would disappear forever.

    • Rshill7

      Or he could change it to Ben Ghazi, then the press would never talk about him ever again.

    I say leave the man the hell alone.
    Now the civil rights IDIOTS will freak and that CNN dope will have a special
    about “the” fact he has another gun.

    • WilliamMorriss

      nomorerinos They’ll want to cut off his right foot so he can’t speed anymore

    • SCarolina

      nomorerinos It has already started. Sharpton is among others harping on it already today.

  • surfcitysocalhb

    1. Zimmerman shouldn’t have been speeding. 2. The cop should have just given him a ticket so he wasn’t accused of letting Zimmerman off easy. 3. Should have asked him if he was speeding to help save a family from a burning car. 4. Zimmerman needs to keep his nose extra clean if he ever wants to be considered a member of society again and not a pariah. Geesh. Have some sense.

    • Conic

      surfcitysocalhb
      “2. The cop should have just given him a ticket so he wasn’t accused of letting Zimmerman off easy.” 
      That is a poor reason to give someone a ticket — because of how you think it will look. To our knowledge, Zimmerman had NO prior tickets and the speed wasn’t excessive. So it was correct of the officer to give just give him a warning.
      Are you telling me he should have been penalized just because of who he is and what he’s had to endure lately? Not very fair!

      • surfcitysocalhb

        Conic surfcitysocalhb I once got a speeding ticket for going 4 miles over the speed limit. Four lousy miles. For the cop’s own sake and safety, and the probable ensuing castigation of his police department, if Zimmerman was breaking the law,  he should have gotten the ticket. Period.

        • Tmrqt

          surfcitysocalhb Conic That is a bunch of crap, police officers have the right to give warnings, they do it all the time! Because you are upset that  you got a ticket for 4 over only means you probably pissed off the cop by saying you had no idea you were speeding or something. My ex has been pulled over like 10 times and not gotten a ticket once! It doesn’t even say how much over he was going. He was railroaded with phony charges and tried and convicted by the media, I think a warning for a speeding ticket is the least they can do for him and any sensible person would agree!!

        • surfcitysocalhb

          Tmrqt surfcitysocalhb Conic The point is I deserved the ticket. And so did Zimmerman. It doesn’t mean I’m going to go attend a Sharpton Trayvon rally, for crying out loud, but as a conservative, I’m going to stop automatically jumping to defend this guy and worry that every sighting of him means that the 2nd amendment is in danger.

        • Watchman74

          surfcitysocalhb Tmrqt Conic I wouldn’t say you deserved the ticket unless you were an habitual speeder. 4 miles is nothing and a warning would have sufficed, the cop was either in a bad mood or wanted to fill his quota.

        • GTeye

          Watchman74 surfcitysocalhb Tmrqt Conic Not to mention you should be given some leeway, 5-7 mph, for speedometer inaccuracy and radar gun inaccuracy….

        • NaomiBlue

          surfcitysocalhb Conic Peace officers are not required to give a ticket at any time. It is always up to their discretion whether or not to write a ticket.

        • EddyWallace

          surfcitysocalhb Conic  where i live we are allowed a buffer of around 5 miles over the speed limit, so cops would not pull you over for a small 4 miles over. at least not here, you must have run into a real asshole.

        • surfcitysocalhb

          Watchman74 surfcitysocalhb Tmrqt Conic I’m guessing it was the probably both the bad mood and the quota.

        • Atlanta-Esquire

          surfcitysocalhb Conic I do not believe that. The typical rule is 9 miles over. (i’m a criminal def lawyer of 14 years and my brother is a cop of 22 years- so I have some smarts in this area).

        • Atlanta-Esquire

          surfcitysocalhb Watchman74 Tmrqt Conic quotas are supposed to be against the law- although I am sure there are places that have them- its wrong.

        • K-Bob

          NaomiBlue surfcitysocalhb Conic  
          Not always.  Many jurisdictions where they make the cops turn on a dash cam require tickets or even arrest in many minor situations where cops used to let people go.
          Friends who are cops tell me they definitely have less discretion than they used to have in many situations.

    • JohnQueue

      surfcitysocalhb Your comments are moronic, tasteless, asinine, juvenile, and if your “name” isn’t revealing enough…you’re an absolute dufus of epic proportions. Crawl back under that rock you emerged from and stop breathing the air meant for the living. Officers have what is known as officer’s discretion…they are free to use it whenever they wish (barring some incident where it no longer is an option). And stop whining, little lib. 
      I got a ticket for an expired registration on my friend’s car (who was IN the car at the time drunk off his rear-end…) I did him a favor of driving him home and BAM… so much for the good friend who didn’t let his friend drive drunk… your cry-me-a-river experience is like flatulence… the only ones who care are you, you and you…

      • surfcitysocalhb

        JohnQueue surfcitysocalhb Yes, I live in California (unfortunately), but no, I’m not one of the morons that keep electing liberty-stealing leftist statists to office here that are slowly turning the state into Marx’s dream home. I’m a  pro-life, anti-tax, constitutional conservative who votes that way. But I’m severely outnumbered. But hey, thanks for lumping me in with all the crazies here. I would move in a heartbeat to Wyoming, but my husband is not yet convinced he’d be able to live in the snow.

        I also happen to be someone who thinks that Zimmerman should have been prosecuted for manslaughter, wherein they had a better chance of getting a conviction, and not the overreaching 2nd degree that he was charged and prosecuted with. So sue me. Allen West, and several other conservative leaders, agree with me, or rather, I agree with them. So I’m not alone. That doesn’t mean I think we should ban handguns, repeal stand-your-ground laws, or eliminate conceal carry. What it does mean is that Zimmerman needs to exercise some common sense, for crying out loud. Is that too much to ask?

        • Tmrqt

          surfcitysocalhb It is only a matter of time till they pull you over to the dark side! California is funny that way! Get the hell out of there while you still have some of  your brain! Obviously if you think Zimmerman did something wrong when a  kid tweaking out because he hasn’t had his “lean” in a while and walked up to GZ as he was walking back to his car and told him he was going to die and then started beating him up….if you think that defending yourself against that is a crime, maybe that one brain cell is gone!

        • surfcitysocalhb

          Tmrqt surfcitysocalhb Well, thanks. The left always defaults to accusing their opposition of stupidity. Trust me, I hate California. I mean, really, really hate it and everything it stands for. But, my husband, born and raised here, is not convinced he can live in the snow. I do, I’ve lived in the snow, and it didn’t kill me. And so, the only thing I can do at this point is make the best of it for the moment and fight liberalism in my own small way. I was on the “dark side” when I was younger, but saw the light when I saw my daughter, now grown, on an ultrasound monitor at 12 weeks. Trust me, I’m never going back.

        • EddyWallace

          surfcitysocalhb JohnQueue he was prosecuted with man slaughter too, and acquitted of all charges because he was innocent. gonna have to pay a bit of attention.

        • surfcitysocalhb

          EddyWallace surfcitysocalhb JohnQueue The judge did say the jury could consider manslaughter, but I haven’t heard any real substantive analysis yet, as to why they rejected it. That, to me, would be worth exploring further.

        • NaomiBlue

          surfcitysocalhb JohnQueue Are you not aware that self defense is a defense against manslaughter as well as murder? There was no evidence in the trial for manslaughter. Furthermore, I believe that Zimmerman has shown plenty of common sense. A little naive maybe by believing he had done nothing wrong, he saw no reason not to talk and talk and talk without the presence of a lawyer. That’s not a lack of common sense, that is a lack of good sense.

        • NaomiBlue

          surfcitysocalhb Tmrqt There’s always Texas! We have a lot of conservatives here….and not much snow!

        • surfcitysocalhb

          NaomiBlueJohnQueue Yes, I understand that self-defense can be a defense against manslaughter, but here’s why I think it could be considered manslaughter. As I noted in another post, Allen West and other conservative leaders I respect have said he shouldn’t have pursued after he was told not to. Zimmerman made more than one bad choice that puts it into the realm of manslaughter. While I don’t think Zimmerman intended to kill Martin, he did have the gun and was overzealous. I don’t believe race had anything to do with it, however. Zimmerman didn’t anticipate Martin might try to attack him, but the question begs to be asked, did he think Martin was just going to shake hands with him and leave? Yes, Zimmerman was legally entitled to have the gun, but was it wise? I think a case could have been made for overzealousness and carelessness on Zimmerman’s part that led to Martin’s death. How much different is it than a drunk getting in a car and killing a thug that way? The drunk would still be responsible for his actions.

          No, I’m not going to a Sharpton-Trayvon rally, nor am I going to join the  Every-Time-Zimmerman’s-Name-Comes-Up-It’s-A-Threat-To-The-2nd-Amendment club. I’m somewhere in the middle as are most people, I believe. In the meantime, even child killer Casey Anthony had enough sense to disappear into a hole for awhile and  not venture out hundreds of miles away from home going “nowhere in particular” for no apparent reason–which is why I’m doubtful this is THE George Zimmerman.

        Libra62 Conservative_Hippie I’m not going to jinx myself. I am over 50 too and have never had any kind of traffic ticket. But there’s not any chance I’ll get one now. I voluntarily stopped driving when my reflexes got too slow. I figured I wouldn’t be too concerned about killing myself at my age, but I didn’t want to take a chance of killing somebody else too.

    • lawngreen

      Conservative_Hippie   ConHip, especially if you have a concealed carry permit, don’t hesitate to tell an officer. At least in my state, that info is recorded with your driver’s license info. If you don’t speak up and the officer discovers in any way that you have a gun, he has to regard it as an indication of trouble staring him in the face. Then things could get really bad.
      In my state, I am required by law to inform any officer who approaches me in the performance of his duties. I did so in one instance – I intervened in an elder abuse case – and the officer had no problem at all with it. He replied, “I’m in favor of legal concealed carry. Keep your gun.”

    If I were GZ and the amount of death threats that he continues to receive I would carry an arsenal.

  • SCarolina

    I use to carry my revolver in my glove box AND my vehicle registration. It was a dumb idea and too much trouble. So, the few times I was stopped I would tell the officer while showing my drivers license that my gun and reg. were there together. Wait for instructions and retrieve the registration. Slowly.
    Now I keep the proof of insurance and registration in my drivers sun visor and my gun in the console. Separated and I don’t declare I’m carrying unless asked. At that time I produce my gun permit from my wallet.
    I’ve never had an office ask to see or inspect my firearm.

    • Dr. Strangelove

      SCarolina In some states you are required to tell the officer you’re armed. I use Handgunlaw.us, which has a pretty comprehensive list of all the states’ laws and regulations.

    • lawngreen

      SCarolina My favorite story involving police officers and legally concealed firearms was this one: a citizen told an officer he had a CCW permit and was armed. The officer replied, “If you don’t draw yours I won’t draw mine.”

  • Charm4sure

    Why would he take a chance and speed? If I were him I’d avoid drawing attention. He is not safe.

    • Localmedia

      Charm4sure It’s easy to be a few miles over. Speed limits change from 50 to 40 to 30 with little warning and he was in a place he doesn’t live, so isn’t familiar with the limits. If cops aren’t busy they do everyone a public service to pull over even minor speeders and remind people not to do so. Especially if the truck had out-of-state plates it’s not unusual. If he were more than 5 mph over the limit he would’ve been ticketed.

      • Dr. Strangelove

        Localmedia Charm4sure I drive around 10,000 miles a month and haven’t had a speeding ticket in over 10 years.

          Formula One and Indy cars don’t count.

        • NaomiBlue

          Dr. Strangelove Localmedia Charm4sure I drove for over 50 years. I never got a speeding ticket. I never got any kind of ticket. But that doesn’t mean I never went over the speed limit. I was just lucky. I’ve never known any person who had never gone over the speed limit. It’s very easy do without even realizing it. So I’m not going to second guess Zimmerman’s actions here.

      • lawngreen

        Localmedia Charm4sure  Godd assessment. Those are probably the reasons the police officer let him off with a warning, and given the circumstances, the same officer probably would have let anyone off with a warning. Speed limits are handy laws to let an officer legally check anyone his street experience tells him might be a wrong ‘un, without having to get a warrant.

    Zimmerman needs to lose about 75 lbs, change his hair color and stay away from Houston or Austin. That will help ensure him of a little more safety.

    • lawngreen

      Jax76  He’s welcome to move in next door to me.

      • NaomiBlue

        lawngreen Jax76 As a Texan, I would be ecstatic to have a neighborhood watch like Zimmerman. What a loyal, decent human to want to improve the condition of his neighborhood. Most people don’t want to be involved.

        • lawngreen

          NaomiBlue lawngreen Jax76 Agrred. There is a need for a pushback organization to protect individuals in situations like this from physical danger. Also to force the press to tell the truth via lawsuits, and to push back hard against irresponsible or malevolent authorities such as holder and obama, who never should have said a word about this case. And also, in this case, Allen West needs to have his wrist slapped hard for joining the racists against Zimmerman.

          If we don’t back these guys up, they will quit getting involved, and I can’t blame them.

        • NaomiBlue

          lawngreen NaomiBlue Jax76 I think it would take years to sue everyone involved in the defamation and damage to George and his family, all the way down from the race baiters, the media (a bunch of them!), the New Black Panthers (and other organizations like it), political entities such as Fla. Governor and prosecutor, all the way up to Holder and Obama. Looks like Obama didn’t learn the first time he stuck his foot in his mouth (Professor Gates)!!
          They better just be sure I’m not on any of the juries!

  • NJK

    Sounds like a very good police officer.

    • Nukeman

      NJK  
      The only thing I didn’t like about what the officer said was “…and don’t play with your firearm, ok”.
       No responsible gun owner “plays” with his firearm. I would like to have heard him say something a little more professional (like please leave your gun in the glove box until I’m finished, or don’t handle your weapon while I’m still checking you out, or something of that nature).

      • Dr. Strangelove

        Nukeman NJK Good thing it wasn’t a libtard officer who would have busted him for driving while presumed white.

      • NaomiBlue

        Nukeman NJK Probably on second thought (or when he saw the published video) he wished he had phrased that a little differently. Any traffic stop where someone is known to be in possession of a firearm, it would be good procedure to remind (everyone should know this already) to not handle the firearm while the officer is in the vicinity. Officers are very leery of such things on a traffic stop on the street. The officer, knowing by then who he had stopped, probably just tried to insert a little humor into his advice. If he had known the rabid lynch mob would be seeing this video, I’m sure he would have used different words.

  • Helen 1

    this rat killed an innocent child and people are still sympathetic of him???  MF’s!!!

    • Localmedia

      Helen 1 Uh, no… He was attacked by a teenaged thug, a serial drug abuser well-known to the police who cold-cocked him, broke his nose and commenced to slamming his head on a sidewalk. To save his own life he pulled out his legal-permitted gun and shot once. You must have missed the facts of the case, perhaps like the vigilante thugs who have threatened his life over the past 18 months. I sure hope you don’t get mugged. It’s a terrible experience and always ends poorly for the victim or perp or both.

      • Helen 1

        Localmedia Helen 1 that was the defense, however, GZ was asked by the police to stop following the boy!, why did he follow him?  He would’ve not, things would’ve been totally different!

        • Localmedia

          Helen 1 Localmedia Apparently you didn’t follow the case. He was trying to keep him in sight, he wasn’t following him. There had been a rash of home burglaries and previous suspects had fled before police arrived. Z was trying to make sure he kept an eye on this one. The police did not tell him to stop following. That is another canard used by the vigilante racists. He didn’t talk to the police. He spoke with a civilian 911 operator. The civilian advised that “we don’t need you” to follow the suspect. That was not an order. A civilian 911 operator has no authority to and cannot give an order. And indeed he did not follow. He merely tried to keep the suspect in sight. What he didn’t know was that the suspect had circled around and was about to assault him. Had the suspect not assaulted Z he might well have been shot by one of the arriving police, or might have been shot during his assault by the police. Let’s hope others have learned that assault is a crime and the drug-addled thug teen Martin paid for it with his life. Don’t assault people. Good words to live by.

        • lawngreen

          Helen 1 Localmedia  Helen, walk the streets at night in a crime-ridden neighborhood. See how many “boys” are responsible for hideous crimes. Of course, one or more of those crimes might be against your person. Then you’d have a real-world experience to tell you what the rest of us were able to comprehend from reading: a 6-foot plus, 175-pound, violent male is not a boy.
          “Things would’ve been totally different” is a meaningless statement. If the US had left hitler and the nazis alone, things would’ve been totally different. Would that have been right?
          People rightly mention in response to attitudes like yours that Zimmerman was a neighborhood watchman doing his job. But in case you’re not aware of it, anyone at all has a right to observe a suspicious person and report his suspicious activities to the police. It used to be that in American neighborhoods, most people watched out for each other.
          To everyone but a democrat / liberal / “progressive” / racist, it’s obvious that George Zimmerman was doing what he was supposed to do when a violent criminal made it necessary for him to do what he had to do – to save his own life from a felonious, deadly attack. Or do you believe that a person is justified in beating to death someone who is observing or following him – if the person being followed is black?

      Helen 1 Backwords Helen!  Zimmerman was having his head beat into the ground.  This was unnecessary.  Trayvon did not have to confront or attack Zimmerman.  It doesn’t matter what the dispatcher said.  The dispatcher had no authority at all.  Zimmerman wanted to make sure the punk thug didn’t get away while the police were on their way.

    • Nukeman

      Helen 1  
      This poor child, whose only desire in life was to finally be able to buy and enjoy a small bag of skittles and a simple ice tea drink, was snuffed from life itself while attempting to ask for directions to his daddy’s house by the evil half-white, crazy-a$$ cracka’ who stalked him down and shot him like a dog. 
      “Oh, please Mr. half-white/half-Hispanic man, please don’t shoot me. I’m only a widdle kid. I was merely looking in all the windows because I thought I might see my daddy in one of them. 
      I didn’t mean to jump you like that, or pound your head in the pavement and then attempt to take your gun from it’s concealed holster. You should have let me shoot you so you wouldn’t be considered a racist, black-hating half-white crazy-a$$ cracka’. 
      After all, Mr. Obama (that loving would-be father of mine) wouldn’t have had to have that wonderfully nice Mr. Holder concoct all those theories about you being such a crazy-a$$ cracka’, if you had died instead of me.

  • tinlizzieowner

    I’ve got one speeding ticket in at least the last 20 years. It was on a very ‘curious’ local road. In my area. It’s a 2 lane, undivided, road with a 45 mph speed limit. Where it crosses the county line, it turns into a median divided, 4 lane road with a 35 mph speed limit. The first 35 mph speed limit sign is at least 100 yards into that county. it also happens to be a well known ‘hang out’ for the Sheriffs on the 35 mph side of the county line. Of course you don’t know it’s a ‘speed trap’ until you drive it regularly and notice how many cars are pulled over in the first 100 yards of the 35 mph area. ;-) ;-)
