Trayvon Martin is dead. He’s the young seventeen year-old teen who was fatally shot, murdered by the wannabe law enforcement officer, George Zimmerman, in Sanford, Florida nearly two years ago this February 2014.
George Zimmerman, despite having been found not guilty of second degree murder by the jury of six females in the most specious, deceptive legal proceeding known this century, continues to have run-ins with the real, official police authorities. He’s *not* gone. He’s *not* forgotten…though we wish he were both gone and forgotten.
Last month, August 2013, the notorious person from Florida, was stopped by police in Texas. He was speeding. It was not surprising to find he was given a warning by the officer who stopped him near Dallas, Texas. The officer is likely a fan.
Then, for the second time in about a month, the Florida vigilante was pulled over for speeding in Florida, very near the place where he committed the crime for which he received an acquittal. This time police in Lake Mary say Zimmerman was going 60 mph in a 45 mph zone and was ticketed for $256.
As if he’d not had his fill of police interactions Shellie Zimmerman, the devoted wife of the killer, after filing for legal separation from her husband, also called police when the trigger happy shooter allegedly waved his pistol to intimidate her and her father during a domestic squabble. The next day Mrs. Z held a news conference with her divorce attorney who stated, “The only thing Shellie wants out of the end of this relationship is for it to end with a whimper and not a bang.”
We’re not alone in our low opinion of the son of Robert Zimmerman former Virginia magistrate, who himself was a fake judge in that state. There are local police who believe it would be best for all concerned if the killer of Trayvon Martin would keep a low profile, or better yet move away.
Typically, people who are like this character, who receive little or no punishment for seriously anti-social behavior are often emboldened to continue to flaunt the law. After enduring the stress of being the defendant in a murder trial it would be reasonable to expect any person of minimum intelligence to be more circumspect in his decisions.
Our expectations are misplaced. We will remember: Blessed are they who expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed.
UPDATE: According to a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman the acquitted would-be copper was stopped by highway patrol on August 19, 2013 for tinted windows. So many stops in so short a time may be harassment. Perhaps there are many more officers than we know among official law enforcement circles who do not admire the actions of the shooter who killed Trayvon Martin.
Again we say: Blessed are they who expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed.
