    Has anyone questioned if GZ was "high" on anything when he shot Trayvon?
    "Power", maybe?

    I still maintain GZ sounded intoxicated on the 911 tapes. Was HE tested?

    Being that he was a cop (or something, was he a cop?), I doubt they tested him. I know someone who got in a wreck while driving drunk. He flipped the other vehicle and by some miracle no one was hurt. The cops were called and somehow no one was ever asked about alcohol or tested for BAC (I was in the vehicle so this is all first hand information). He was friends with a lot of the cops and actually going through training at the time to become a cop. I am not saying this is normal but it already seems like GZ was given a LOT of leeway for the connections he had within the police department so is it so hard to imagine he wasn't tested? For me, no.

    GZ was not a cop.

    He had connections to the police department though, didn't he? Was his father a cop? I can't remember what it was.

    He was one of those guys who had a 'fascination' with law enforcement.

    His father was a court magistrate in two states.

    He was not an officer of the law, but I heard that more often than not, he did watch the television series Law and Order.

    :p

    George Zimmerman defense team responds to cousin’s molestation claims

    I'm wondering if she wanted to remain annonymous. Because the next line of the article says:

    The (alleged) abuse lasted a decade:

    One of the reasons she came forward:

    And that she was not the only person he (allegedly) abused:

    I am sorry but an 8 year old boy is not "molesting" anyone. He is simply re-enacting learned behavior and has not been told it is wrong. I question if he was molested, more than whether she was. Someone did that to him in order for him to learn to do it to her. This has no bearing on my opinion of the case, he is a murderer IMO, but I don't think this makes him a molester as well.

    It allegedly went on for 10 years though at which point he was 18. Should also say one of GZ's ex's accused him of sexually assaulting her in a way similar to what the cousin described. GZ was clearly an adult at that point.

    Oh, and team Zimmerman have asked for a new judge bc they didn't like the judge's admonishment of Zimmerman at his latest bond hearing.

    Hi Bri,

    Just a heads up, but Junior has just signed up for a class on our kids playdate days, so won't be able to see your young 'un anymore.

    Best wishes,

    Peter G

    :p

    Local news in Central Florida reported that GZ asked for more donations to his re-opened website during the interview - taped this afternoon.

    ^ That doesn't surprise me at all, especially since after his bail bond was upped tenfold he likely had to use most of the $$ he had previously raised for that.

    I thought he had his wife pay off all their bills from the previous website fundraiser. Like their mortgage, credit cards, insurance policies, loans and any other outstanding bills they had. Now he wants mooooore money? :rolleyes:

    Even though O'Mara took the case "Pro Bono", I'm sure GZ's expenses are considerable.
    They've had to find a place for him to live while on bail; with all the attendant requirements met.

    I think George Zimmerman should run away with Karen Klein.

    GZ now says that killing Martin "was part of God's plan". What a tool.

    Comments like that show how clueless - and unwilling to assume responsibility for his choices/actions - he is.

    I liked Martin's father's response which was something like 'We must be worshipping different Gods because I'm pretty sure my God didn't want Trayvon dead.'

    The most :eek: part of that interview was when GZ says he regrets nothing, and would do nothing differently.

    How about not getting out of your truck/car, George, and letting the police handle it, as the dispatcher suggested?
