George Zimmerman Wounded In Florida Shooting Incident

George Zimmerman 2015

According to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell, George Zimmerman was injured in a shooting incident around 12:45 PM on Monday. The wound is reportedly minor, and Zimmerman walked to the ambulance under his own power. Bracknell initially gave few details on the shooting but suggested that it may have been part of an “ongoing dispute” between Zimmerman and another person.

Zimmerman was acquitted in 2013 in the high-profile shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Since Zimmerman’s acquittal, he has been involved in a number of incidents that raise questions about his ability to avoid violent confrontation with others. Zimmerman was arrested for aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon in January 2015 for allegedly throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend.

In September 2013, Zimmerman allegedly threatened his estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, with a gun and he also reportedly punched her father. A year later, in September 2014, motorist, Matthew Apperson called 911 to report that George Zimmerman threatened to shoot him during a road rage altercation.

In each of the three post-trial incidents where Zimmerman allegedly acted violently, charges were not pressed, and he was not convicted.  Despite a pattern of becoming involved in a series of violent confrontations, Zimmerman has managed to dodge serious consequences time and again.

Police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said Monday’s shooting appeared to be some type of “road rage incident. She did not disclose how the incident unfolded, or what precipitated the apparent act of road rage.

Until more details become available, it is premature to speculate on why George Zimmerman was shot at. What is clear, however, is that George Zimmerman often finds himself involved in disputes that escalate into violence. While this does not necessarily imply that he alone is responsible for escalating each and every confrontation he is involved in, it does suggest that something in his behavior leads him to disproportionately find himself in violent situations, either as the perpetrator, the victim, or perhaps a little of each.

  1. At some point, this idiot is going to cross someone who is more than willing to “stand his ground” and end up very dead. It isn’t a question of whether, but when…

  2. Even if he gets away AGAIN, some agency needs to declare him a serious threat to self and others and resend his rights to own, carry or use firearms FOREVER.

  3. I doubt that will happen lorrene. It would be great if that could happen though. No, someone will stand their ground on Zimmerman, and that will be the end of him.

  4. Soon George will fulfill the following,”Matthew 26:52 New International Version (NIV)
    “Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.

  5. And clearly I have a troll giving me down thumb for a throw away remark about the sun also rising – and everything else as soon as I say it.

    Troll, it means duh, of course zimmerman was going to keep getting in trouble it is about as shocking as the sun rising.

    You think it is odd that he is in trouble with guns involved?

    I ignore the thumbs, I have had a lot, I have had a little. Who cares?

    You little weirdo whoever you are – quit following me around.

    Give this your thumbs down too child. A-hole.

  6. At the present state of his reputation , just recognizing his face would be reason for someone to stand their ground.

  7. Rin,so far two people are saying that the sun will not rise tomorrow!…I’m wagering on ol’ Sol for the win. Must be Bill O’Reilly fans…

  8. While I don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone… The world would be a better place if George Zimmerman was not IN IT!!!!

  9. I am currently in the Sunshine State so it is a given. Maybe they are in polar areas?

    It must be Jimmy K, the man just isn’t so bright, poor thing.

  10. Just curious with this being Florida and all. Is Zimmerman still unemployed, and if so, how will he pay for his ER visit?

  11. Wow, that article was almost…fair and balanced. History of trouble but too early to know what happened. Fair enough. What I’m amazed at is the fact he wasn’t referred to as a Republican at least three times, and his actions represented all Republicans. I mean, he is one, right?

  12. Google is your friend if you want to know the answer, but really, does it matter?

    He is a sick bastard. It is a gun issue. Do you want people like him armed around your family? How about if someone like this was your mother’s neighbor?

    Would you want him to be checked or should he be allowed to buy guns if he wants?

    WTF does the 2nd amendment have to do with it? Why does the NRA contain the biggest hypocrites and a-holes on the planet?

    Google all that.

  13. oh and, I forgot to say, I do believe he is a member of your tribe, I don’t know for sure but I remember his artwork piece of crap with the flag and liberty that was fake patriotism and psychobabble.

    I love my country, I want a president that loves this country too.

  14. Rin, If George Z is a “sick bastard” then it’s not a gun issue, it’s a George Z. issue. It looks like he shouldn’t have guns or wine bottles.

  15. Sick bastards have access to guns. Every attmpt to slow the deluge of guns to lunatics and training, is met with REPUBLICAN LOBBY MONEY attacks.

    I respected Brady and his website was excellent. He and his wife passed the torch to Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark.

    The Republicans all spoke and did their songs and dances for the people who thought Newtown was a ploy to take away their guns. Your people. Are you proud?

  16. Ooh Rin! I Googled it! George Zimmerman is a registered democrat and voted for Obama.

    Now, does that matter? Absolutely not! This guy is either the unluckiest man in history, or he has real anger issues. His political history has no bearing on this situation.

    BUT, after reading this website for a couple of weeks you can understand why I’m confused about that, because on here every article is used to condemn Republicans and prop up democrats. That’s what caught my eye about the article immediately: it was politically neutral. That never happens on this site!

  17. You are so proud of your googling skills when I would be sure you were trying to set it up.

    Now google the rest of the horrors gun lobby republican murderers cause nationwide for their money and support and to try to get them some “they’re taking away my guns” blood money.

    It isn’t about one idiot. It is about Race. It is about wrongful murder. It is about Gun control. It isn’t about how some psycho registered in 02.

  18. Your wine comment is so lame I will not respond to it. This is one issue that makes me lose it. You are evil and so are your people. Dead kids. I am not laughing.

  19. Don’t know, don’t care. I don’t give a damn what his politics are. He is just another SFB twit that needs to completely disappear and never come back. Like Sarah Palin.

  20. ALL RIGHT YOU TWO!!!!Robert and Rin, if you don’t stop it this instant you are both going to bed with out your supper! I have had enough of this arguing between you two! Do I make myself clear?

  21. Alright Rin, this is serious to you so I will lose the sarcasm.

    I don’t know how you can protect people from crazies with guns without taking all of them from everybody. How would you go about that in all seriousness. Or, what would be reasonable background checks that would satisfy you that no child will ever be killed by a gun. No butting heads now, let’s just talk.

  22. Well for one thing I’d like to see Z not have a gun again.

    As he has amply demonstrated time and again- he IS NOT a ‘responsible gun owner’ in any way shape or form.

    Can we prevent crazies from getting guns? No. But neither can we prevent child rapists from …

    But we can make the lives of those who choose to act irresponsibly very difficult.

    And I for one- feel that if Z. manages to get his ass terminally shot- then whomever managed to put him down- should be free to walk away scot-free.
    IMHO.

  23. “George Michael Zimmerman, born Oct. 5, 1983, registered as a REPUBLICAN in Seminole County, Fla., in August 2002, according to state voter registration documents.”

  24. Seriously no law would be 100% effective, but we could do a much better job of dealing with the issue.

    First, set up a national registry for gun owners. Anyone who wants to buy, sell, carry, or use a gun (for hunting) has to get an ID card with a picture, thumbprint,and unique number. Anyone who buys, sells, or gives away a gun has to check the other persons ID and they have to enter the transaction with both numbers on an internet site.

    Second, anyone with a criminal record cannot have an ID. Anyone with a history of violence cannot have an ID.

    Third, have severe punishments, starting with fines and moving up to jail time for breaking the laws regulating guns.

    Fourth, have a national buy back day every year where people can sell weapons for $50 without having to provide ID:just hand over the gun and get the cash.

    Fifth, ban the manufacture and sale of new handguns to anyone except the police and military. Ban the import of guns entirely.

  25. In the real world it doesn’t work like that. Go back to Fux News, Robert. You’ll get all the ignorance you crave there.

  26. Sunwyn, I could at least debate the pros and cons of the first four ideas. I think there are problems with them but at least we could talk. No. 5? That’s a deal-breaker. That’s banning guns for private ownership. Unconstitutional.

  27. Zimmerman may get shot between the eyes by another gun crazy. oh wait , they won’t as his eyes are too close together……..

  28. Which party Dj or Pepper, one of them is right and it does not matter.

    Lanza and George are in the access to guns party they should never have been in.

  29. @robert, for the love of GOD! why don’t you give it a rest! YOU’RE here for ONE reason and one reason only! to talk $HIT! I’ve read several of your post and either you’re extremely IGNORANT or you’re just begging for attention! I pray when I get your age, I don’t lower myself to jumping on the internet FISHING for FIGHTS! @robert, GROW UP! it’s republican old LILY white jerkoffs like YOU that destroy ANY intelligent debate! DO BETTER GRANDPA

  30. But he’s only a few incidents away from being able to put together his very own “Zimmerman Mugshot Calendar”!

  31. Of course this site puts hypocritical, lying republicans in their place, and of course this site “props up” democrats. Newsflash, this is a liberal site.
    Go to any of your favourite conservative web-sites and see how many republicans they are running down, or how many liberals they are “propping up”. Ain’t gonna happen, my friend.
    George Zimmerman is a coward who stalked a teen age boy, gunned him down, then claimed he was threatened.
    A lying sack of shit who got away with murder.

  32. for reasonable gun control how about this for starters?

    since most gun crimes are committed by people who are not supposed to have them n the first place, we need to stop them from getting guns. often, people who shouldn’t have guns are given/sold them by legitimate buyers who purchase them on their behalf, then report the gun as stolen when it is used in a crime.

    I have no quarrel whatsoever with responsible gun ownership. and a responsible owner knows knows where his weapons are….

    so, first off, lost or stolen guns should be required to be reported to police as such as soon as they are noticed missing. the gun owner should be held financially responsible for any crimes committed with any lost/stolen gun that was committed before the gun was reported to police. in addition, any person who has an excessive number of weapons reported lost/stolen should lose the right to purchase them.
