    Over-hype for sure!

    Admittedly, I didn't think George Zimmerman was innocent, but I certainly didn't want to see him dead. What I wanted was a fair trial where all the evidence was presented and a fair verdict rendered. I got that. Until the guy started mindlessly injecting himself back in the public eye I'd put him out of my memory.

    My wife and I were saying this very same thing today when we heard the latest news. I think if those who supported Zimmerman were truly being honest, I think they'd have to admit that they gave George Zimmerman the benefit of the doubt because he was taunted as "the law abiding citizen who doesn't get angry, cares about his neighborhood, wants to be a peacekeeper and volunteers to minority children" whereas Trayvon was "a young punk kid who was always in trouble, did drugs and was a juvenile delinquent". In short, Zimmerman by all accounts was squeaky clean and Trayvon was a troubled teen. And quite honestly, I can't say I blame folks for having such instant impressions. But what some of us were trying to say all along was, "What if you got it wrong? What if the guy who came across as the good guy was really the bad guy? And what if the troubled teen wasn't as much of a trouble maker in this case as everyone though?

    While this one incident doesn't do much to recast Zimmerman as a bad guy, it does tarnish his "squeaky clean" image a bit...enough to make you go, "Hmmm....maybe he does have a bit of a temper after all."

    And, if those of you--yes you--who were ready to lynch him were totally honest you would admit that it's "because a white dude killed a black dude"

    Details are coming out so the speculation can fade away.

    Police detain George Zimmerman after 911 call from wife [W:265]Let's stick to the topic, which is not music.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    There are several people who should be ashamed of themselves. They all jumped to conclusions without all the facts - what else is new. The story has since changed. No gun was involved at all. She sensationalized the incident but for what purpose?

    That has been one of the problems with the whole issue. It is not just the jumping to conclusions, but also the "facts" that keep on changing depending on which side you talk to. There are certain things that do seem somewhat obvious that have some evidence before all this started. Zim and wife had some domestic issues. yes, charges were not pressed, but they did have issues which involved the police. Now all on it's own i would say it could be nothing, but when you add it to things like zim's altercation with a police officer, his admitted approach of martin and confrontation with him, some clear dishonesty in regards to finance reporting with the law, and his poor decision making skills I would have to say the argument got out of control. Was there a gun? Who knows. Was there an altercation? I would believe it. Zim seems to put himself into these sorts of situations. It most certainly is not as dramatic as the news has made it out to be, and we have already seen them start walking back their crazy, but I can see him and his wife getting into a blow up argument over divorce and all this crap that has gone on. I could not see most people not getting into it in a divorce like this. He should have stayed away from treyvon, but when it is your spouse staying away is much different because to an extent you have to deal with them. I have to say if any of the zim supporters are claiming this is entirely fabricated you are insane. A divorce is hard enough, and these two have financial troubles, the media hounding them, they just got done with a trial, they have some legal troubles, and really if they are not fighting at this point I would have to think there was something wrong with them. There is no one that under control who is going to go through a divorce with this much crap going on silently and calmly. If he did hit someone I do not endorse it, but at least this one I can understand. If he did not hit her, kudos to him because it is a crazy and angering situation and he kept himself from hitting. If the cops cannot prove assault this should probably be let go entirely with just a report in case something happens in the future.

    Of course, if the media wants to pay attention to the media whore the whore is just getting what they asked for.

    I have not read the entire thread so i apologise in advance if this has already been stated.

    I'm just really happy that Shellie and George Zimmerman do not have any children together. If she is prepared to lie and make false accusations, knowing full well the consequences of her actions, then i can't help but wonder if she would be the sort of "mother" who would use the children as pawns with complete disregard of keeping the best interest of the child at heart.

    This doesn't change the facts of the Martin case..... I had no doubt in my mind that Zimmerman would have shot anyone who gave him a reason to - he was just waiting for a legal reason to shoot someone, but he was in his legal means in doing such in the Martin case.

    He thinks like a cop and acts like a cop......

    Apparently this whole ordeal didn't register in his head - apparently it empowered him...

    It matters not.

    Update: no weapons were found, no punches thrown and no charges will be filed. A simple pre-divorce technicality.
