  •  Zimmerman not arrested (4+ / 0-)

    I'm just learning this now....perhaps this is common knowledge.

    I read thru the email exchange between the Lake Mary police chief and the concerned citizen.  In his email, the police chief says that he is aware that GZ punched his father-in-law in the nose, and that the father-in-law refused to press charges.  Though the police chief knows a crime has been committed (assault and battery), he cannot make an arrest without a complaint - no victim, no crime.

    In the same email, the police chief says he is aware that GZ grabbed his wife's iPad away from her and broke it over his knee, and that the wife refused to press charges.  Though the police chief knows a crime was committed (larceny, vandalism), he cannot make an arrest without a complaint - no victim, no crime.

    I wonder why Shellie Zimmerman and her father both refused to press charges after being assaulted, battered, and suffering larceny at the hands of GZ.  

    Shellie Z. recently plead guilty to lying to the courts to protect GZ.

    •  That seems to be obvious to me (2+ / 0-)

      Fear of Zimmerman coming back and "finishing the job."

      It's one of the biggest fears most women who have dealt with a man like this has. After all, who is going to protect them 24/7?

    •  larceny, kinda funny (0+ / 0-)

      You do know that Shellie also admitted she hit Zimmerman with the iPad BEFORE he took it right?  You do know that Mr Zimmerman was also assaulted and also refused to press charges right?  Not you don't because you, like most Liberals still cannot get it through your head that Zimmerman was found not guilty because Martin attacked him.  If you would even take 10 seconds to review to facts of the case you'd agree, but it's easy to many Liberal judgements.  

      Also the Police Chief should be fired for making a comment like that.  It was 100% unprofessional.

      •  You are correct - I did not know (0+ / 0-)

        You are correct; I have not heard that GZ was hit by SZ.  This bit was not in the email from the Lake Mary police chief - the emails on which I based my original comment.

        The Lake Mary police chief said in his email that he knew GZ had punched his father-in-law in the face, and that he knew GZ had destroyed SZ iPad.  But, the police chief made no mention of SZ striking GZ.

        Maybe you should share your new information on the case with the Lake Mary police.

      •  Oh - and your understanding of the trial (0+ / 0-)

        I forgot to say in my other comment - your understanding of the George Zimmerman trial is erroneous.

        It is true that GZ was found not guilty of murder and/or manslaughter.  The trial did NOT prove that Trayvon Martin attacked GZ.  The trial did NOT prove Trayvon Martin was involved in any criminal activity.  Indeed, the defense made numerous ALLEGATIONS about Trayvon Martin, but none of those were proved at the trial.
