George Zimmerman arrested, – again!
George Zimmerman, who provoked and eventually shot and killed 17-year old Trayvon Martin, is at it again. This time he has been arrested for aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon. Here’s from a blog post on ABC’s news site:
The dangerous violent t h u g Zimmerman can’t stay out of trouble. He was accused of molesting his cousin. He was fired from his job for aggressive behavior — body slamming a co-worker. His record includes charges for resisting arrest which his magistrate daddy got dropped. This was all before he profiled, stalked, then started a fight with an unarmed teenager named Trayvon Martin, then murdered the kid when he started to lose the fight like the coward he is. Then he continues to get in trouble with the law — stopped for speeding, beating up his girlfriend, assaulting his ex-wife and her father while brandishing a weapon. And now this ticking time bomb — who should not be able to own a weapon — is under arrest for aggravated assault. Shocker.
And yet right wing conservative Republicans still to this day insist the kid was the aggressor. Sure. Right.
Here’s from one of my earlier blogs:
What difference does it make who cried for help during the fight between George Zimmerman and his murder victim, Trayvon Martin? It could be either of the two, and unrelated to who initiated and was responsible for that fatal confrontation. There seems to be no doubt that Zimmerman left his car and kept following Trayvon, despite the 911 operator telling him not to. If Zimmerman pursued and tried to stop Trayvon, or challenged him in some way, the natural reaction for Trayvon would be to resist and defend himself, try to get away or hit back and take the aggressor down, in which case Zimmerman may have cried out. But if he were pinned down on his back, as he claims, how could he get his gun out from underneath both shirt and jacket, hidden inside his pants in the back and be able to shoot Trayvon in the heart? He probably already had his gun out, ready to shoot. In that case, Trayvon’s only chance was to try a knock-out, causing Zimmerman to fall and slightly scratch his head. Still, he was able to shoot and kill Trayvon, and later call it “God’s will.”
If not for Zimmerman, Trayvon would have made it home with his iced tea and Skittles alive. While on the phone with a friend complaining about a scary guy he was trying to get away from, he wasn’t likely to follow him and pick a fight. That’s what Zimmerman did. He didn’t “fight for his life” — he took Trayvon Martin’s.
