    Zimmerman’s city bans guns for neighborhood watch volunteers

    The new rules, to be released at a community meeting on November 5 in Sanford, Florida, will state explicitly that residents acting under the authority of neighborhood watch may not carry a firearm or pursue someone they deem suspicious.

    “Neighborhood watch was always intended to be a program where you observe what is going on and report it to police. In light of everything that has gone on, that’s what we’re really going to go back and push. That’s what this program is and that’s all it is,” said Shannon Cordingly, spokeswoman for the Sanford Police Department.

    In 2011, when Zimmerman organized a watch group in his gated neighborhood, Sanford police offered a handbook and a presentation by a police volunteer explaining the role of the group in helping deter crime.

    Sanford’s new rules are laid out in a more detailed handbook and will require neighborhood watch groups to undergo training, register members with the police department and regularly update their status with the department, Cordingly said.

    She said any neighborhood watch member who violates the rules, including carrying a weapon, will face removal from the program but will not be charged with a crime.

    Even if they are charged, they won’t necessarily be convicted.

    The guy just can’t stay out of trouble. The pattern of behavior suggests that a lot of people who defended this guy have some soul-searching to do.

    TPM has a pretty good opinion piece on it,

    Obviously we still can’t know just what happened that night. But police have now responded to two domestic violence incidents with two separate women in less than three months – and this in less than five months since his acquittal.

    After the first incident with Zimmerman’s estranged wife, some speculated that she and her father may have concocted or embellished the story to retaliate against him in the context of their divorce. This was never likely. But it wasn’t impossible either. Men and women do make false claims during a divorce. So there was always the outside possibility that Zimmerman’s wife and her father might have lied or embellished to get him back in trouble with the law. Remember, she had earlier pled guilty to perjuring herself on his behalf shortly after the shooting.

    Now we have him allegedly pointing a loaded weapon at his new girlfriend and apparently barricading himself in the house after police arrived on the scene. Add to this the earlier history of violent incidents including violently resisting arrest in 2005 and the real world verdict is now beyond a reasonable doubt as to this point: Zimmerman is a liar and a habitually violent and frequently out of control man who should never have been allowed to possess a gun.

    Given all we know now about Zimmerman and all the additional evidence he’s provided us with post-acquittal, there’s simply no reason to doubt the worst case scenario of how Trayvon Martin died. The only real question is whether Martin shot him in cold blood or killed him during the confrontation he himself forced to happen.

    Those who supported the Martin family and were outraged by the verdict and the whole case have every right to grim ‘I told you sos’ and even snark aimed at Zimmerman’s dead-ender defenders.

    somewhat related, look at the cropping job someone did on Zimmerman’s head in the links above the TMZ article. It’s like they made him out of polygons (and he’s 30 lbs lighter).

    I can’t believe someone was dating this guy. Unless you count his cellmate Bubba… which is where he belonged in the first place.

    Looks like George is a budding artist.

    If someone really does drop $100k on this, I have to wonder what else they have in their collection… Manson memorabilia?

    There are 98 bids for that. Maybe LaPierre has an ebay account?

    So apparently Captain Helpless who was in danger of getting beaten to death by a skinny 17 year old kid is now a boxer.

    After securing his boxing gloves you could wrap his head in duct tape and watch him dance?

    I’d pay to see that.
