George Zimmerman Is Taken into Custody After His Estranged Wife Calls 911 On Him
George Zimmerman was taken into custody Monday after what the police are calling a “domestic altercation with his wife and her father at a home in Lake Mary, Florida.”
Shellie Zimmerman called 911, and the police found a gun in the home.
“As of right now, (George Zimmerman) has been placed in investigative detention,” Lake Mary police spokesman Zach Hudson said, according to , who also reported that Hudson explained that this is procedure when they suspect someone of doing something.
ABC reports that George Zimmerman is being held at a family residence. “There was some kind of a domestic, we know that with his wife and father-in-law. Apparently there were some weapons involved and threats,” the deputy police chief in Lake Mary told .
Kelly Sims, Shellie Zimmerman’s attorney, told ABC that George pulled a gun on Shellie and her father.
Zimmerman has not been charged with a crime.
“Domestic altercation”/”Domestic” is often police code for one person who may or may not still be a domestic partner perpetrating violence on their partner. It should be called what it is, as it would be in any other crime. We don’t call robbery a wallet altercation.
In the August 29th article, I explained that leaving is the most dangerous time for a woman leaving an abusive, controlling partner. Shellie had left George the night before he killed Trayvon.
Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce just days ago, and the police have already been called via 911. This man is going to kill someone else. It’s just a matter of time.

Florida Police Warn Public Against Taking Law Into Own Hands Unless It’s That Law Specifically Designed For You To Do That
SANFORD, FL—Amidst the controversy surrounding the recent shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Sanford Police Department cautioned Florida residents Tuesday against taking the law into their own hands, except when following the state statute that explicitly authorizes people to do so. “Let me be clear: We do not want citizens resorting to deadly force when they believe they’re being threatened—unless, of course, they are following the letter of the law, which says they can resort to deadly force when they believe they’re being threatened,” said interim Sanford police chief Darren Scott, referring to the state’s ”Stand Your Ground” rule. ”Law enforcement should be left to the police. However, it can also be left to common citizens, since pursuing vigilante justice is perfectly within their legal rights. Have I made myself clear?” After being bombarded with questions about the confusing nature of the law, a flustered Scott said, ”Just don’t be racist and kill people, okay?”
