    You can't use a domestic dispute as a means to judge a persons tendencies. I was once arrested for a list of charges a mile long, including kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon, all stemming from a domestic dispute that could have gotten me 10+ years in prison. Once she realized the ramifications of the false accusations she made, she came forward (6 months and thousands of dollars later) and all the charges were dropped. It's still to this day, the only time I have ever been arrested for anything, or spent any time in jail.

    To judge me based on that arrest and those accusations, would be a monumental misjudgment of the kind of person I truly am... Unfortunately, relationships can bring out the darker side of many people, that they didn't even know existed.

    Give that some thought.

    No. Because real men are still real men even without their guns.

      O'Mara confirmed Zimmerman had his gun on him. "He was armed ... He put his hand (on the gun) to make sure it was holstered," he said. "He knows how to carry responsibly."

      Police initially took away Zimmerman's gun, but O'Mara said it was later returned to his client.


    • USA Today

      Deputy Police Chief Colin Morgan said officers did not recover a gun, and Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman later dropped her claim that a gun was involved.
    How would O'Mara know? I heard him say yesterday he was no longer representing Zimmerman.

    I believe our soldiers are real men and they need their guns on the battlefield.

    Hypothetical - no. It's already happened once... media outrage sparks pressure on police and prosecutors who have no case and little evidence files charges due to claims of racism. If it worked once, why not again was my point.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well, honestly if it had been maybe one instance or perhaps multiple incidents with just one woman I would be less inclined. But multiple incidents with multiple women along with comments made regarding his temper from others who know him and of course the TM incident I am inclined to believe their is an issue. Of course, I don't know the man. But if video comes back confirming he behaved as he was originally accused by Shellie, I would not be remotely surprised. Until then I have an opinion, but reserve judgment.
