Earlier this week, wannabe cop and acquitted killer George Zimmerman had the cops called on him twice over a road rage incident that turned into menacing and stalking. On Tuesday, in Lake Mary, FL, Zimmerman pulled up beside another car in his truck and threatened the motorist inside. The driver, Matthew Apperson, stated he was listening to music inside his car when Zimmerman pulled up alongside him and started yelling. Zimmerman had another passenger in the car, who joined in on the verbal assaults of Apperson.
Apparently, Apperson was driving with his windows up and music blaring, completely oblivious of anything going on around him. One would guess he was waving his hands or fingers to the music based on Zimmerman’s reaction when he pulled up next to him and started shouting. Per Apperson, Zimmerman said, ”Hey, what’s your problem? Why you shaking your finger?” After that, Apperson said he saw Zimmerman brandish a gun. With his gun in view, Zimmerman went full-on Sarah Palin and yelled out, “Do you know who I am? ”I’ll f***ing kill you!”
Apperson explained that since he left his cell phone at home, he drove to a gas station to call the police. He explained to the dispatcher the road rage incident and then pointed out that Zimmerman and his associate had followed him to the gas station and had blocked him in so that he couldn’t drive away. While at the gas station, both Zimmerman and his friend threatened to shoot and kill him. By the time the police had arrived, Zimmerman has skedaddled. Even though Apperson said he was clear that it was Zimmerman, police suggested to him that without other witnesses or video evidence of the encounter, it would be very hard to make charges stick. In the end, Apperson decided not to press charges.
Of course, Zimmerman, being the insecure gun-toting bully that he is, couldn’t leave well enough alone. He tracked down Apperson to his place of work and hung around outside. Apperson called the police, saying he was disturbed by Zimmerman “lurking around” outside. Police eventually showed up and interviewed Zimmerman. As one would guess, Zimmerman had a gun tucked into his waistband. Zimmerman was able to convince the police that he was in the area for an appointment. He was given his gun back and allowed to go about his business.
Once again, Apperson decided not to press charges, likely because it was apparent that the police weren’t going to do anything about it in the long run. For some reason, this sociopath is allowed to continuously threaten people with firearms, as has been the case with his estranged wife, girlfriend and Apperson, or just shoot them dead, as occurred with Trayvon Martin, without repercussion. In fact, based on the non-existent gun laws in certain parts of this country, this dangerous individual is allowed to just walk around with a loaded firearm.
It seems like a foregone conclusion that Zimmerman is going to end up shooting somebody else at some point. It isn’t a matter of if, but when.
