A Seminole County judge has set $5,000 bond for George Zimmerman, who was arrested Friday night in Lake Mary.I was curious about the response to this from the right-wing base, so I read through this Free Republic thread. Some Freepers disavow him "He may not be the racist murderer the media tried to paint, but he is indeed, an imbecile"), with at least one claiming that Zimmermania was a passing fad ("I'm so over him"). Others don't trust the LIE-beral media. ("If it’s even true he did something wrong. Things are crazy down south. Don’t assume that Trayvon style racial madness has not penetrated government too.") Still others think he just cracked under liberal-fascist pressure. ("George Zimmerman was clearly unable to handle the insults, the public assaults on him, the constant lies, the constant need to watch his back due to death threats from Spike Lee followers... George Zimmerman was made into this because he felt he had no where to go.")
The 31-year-old was booked around 9:45 p.m. for aggravated assault -- domestic violence with a weapon. According to Don West, Zimmerman's attorney, his client threw a wine bottle during the incident....
This was Zimmerman's third arrest in recent years.
In November 2013, deputies were called out to an Apopka home after they said he cocked and pointed a shotgun at his girlfriend Samantha Schiebe and then barricaded himself inside. The incident came after Schiebe said she ordered him to move out....
Two months before, Zimmerman was involved in a dispute with his estranged wife Shellie, days after she filed for divorce....
And then there are the Freepers who think none of this would be happening if it weren't for those damn crazy dames:
... He’d had trouble with the same woman before hadn’t he? He should have left her at the curb.There you have it, ladies: If a serial criminal violently assaults you, and other women, and men ... it mut be your fault.
... wymmins is trouble if you get the wrong kind. :0)
... it seems GZ biggest problem is the female companionship he attracts...
Seems like almost every "issue" he has had after his trial was related to a relationship...
I’m not willing to assume guilty on GZ. It’s quite possible, but so is a frivolous prosecution by cops who want to get him on something, or an accusation by a crazy girlfriend (and we know he likes his women crazy).
... stay away from crazy women - or from women who make him act crazy if the charges are true.
I agree that wymmen folk can be huge huge trouble.
Eve hardly knew what hit her and it has gone downhill since.
Anyone that’s really read about the incidents after the trial know that his wife is involved in many of those incidents and is a very vindictive type that would accuse you of raping a baby if it would get you put away for life. People forget that she lied about the funds received from the public.
He’d had trouble with the same woman before hadn’t he? He should have left her at the curb.
I believe that every father tries to communicate a basic wisdom to his son as he comes of age... but most just don't ever receive the message: "Don't let your dick run your life".
