(CNN)George Zimmerman — acquitted by a Florida jury over the death of Trayvon Martin — was arrested in Florida on suspicion of aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon, local authorities said.
The 31-year-old Florida resident was arrested Friday by police in Lake Mary at about 10 p.m. and booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, according to that facility’s website. That facility, like its website, is run by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
It all came about after Zimmerman allegedly threw a wine bottle at a girlfriend, his lawyer Don West told reporters. (Source: Read more)
To The Brown Family,
I wish I had a word of automatic comfort but I don’t. I wish I could say that it will be alright on a certain or specific day but I can’t. I wish that all of the pain that I have endured could possibly ease some of yours but it won’t. What I can do for you is what has been done for me: pray for you then share my continuing journey as you begin yours.
I hate that you and your family must join this exclusive yet growing group of parents and relatives who have lost loved ones to senseless gun violence. Of particular concern is that so many of these gun violence cases involve children far too young. But Michael is much more than a police/gun violence case; Michael is your son. A son that barely had a chance to live. Our children are our future so whenever any of our children – black, white, brown, yellow, or red – are taken from us unnecessarily, it causes a never-ending pain that is unlike anything I could have imagined experiencing.

Michael Brown Incident
Response: Damn all in less than a year matter of fact just this year. Aquitted of murder, wife filing for divorce and now girlfriends says he pointed a shotgun at her. This dude has some serious issues however some folks don’t see anything wrong with him. (SMDH!) Shaking my damn head!
George Zimmerman, acquitted in July in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was arrested Monday afternoon for allegedly pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend and pushing her out of her house as he packed to move out, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said.
Zimmerman barricaded himself in the house Samantha Scheibe rented in Apopka, which he had shared with her since around August, Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma said at a news conference. She gave deputies a key, and they pushed aside furniture he had piled against the door. (More)
Response: Well I am going to see if he is going to be allowed to stand his damn ground in this case. Damn this crazy dude has been in the news showing just how ignant he is every since he has been freed from killing Trayvon Martin. So where is all of Zimmerman’s supporters now? They agreed he had the right to kill Trayvon for no reason so now I am waiting to see if they feel he had the right to punch his wife’s dad and to drive her to leaving him? Well this is going to be another wait and see what the hell is next with this dude?
LAKE MARY, Fla. — Police investigating a domestic dispute between George Zimmerman and his estranged wife said Tuesday they were confident they would be able to get video from her broken iPad, and the evidence will help them determine if charges should be filed.
Police believe the mobile device captured video of Monday’s dispute at the Lake Mary house where the Zimmermans had been living. Shellie Zimmerman told authorities he smashed it to pieces, but the former neighborhood watch volunteer said she hit him with it. Police said it was examined at a crime lab, and the chances of them being able to watch the video were “outstanding,” but it wasn’t clear when that might happen. (More)

When it comes to America’s racial past and present, lies and snake oil are sold in many colors.
In the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, conservatives in media have sought to deflect from the racism and racial profiling that precipitated his untimely death by referencing the broader social malaise of supposed "black-on-black violence." (More)

“Shea” provided a link to an article that everyone should read. An FBI investigator has found that just hours before the shooting of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman had repeatedly visited several pornographic websites, “aimed toward gay Black men.” The sites visited were Taggaz.com, CocoDorm.com, and Thugboy.com. “Graphic in nature, the sites are premium adult pay sites containing images, videos, and erotic stories of Black ‘thug’ males engaging in sexual acts with other men.“ (More)
