George Zimmerman Patrolling Again

images

George Zimmerman during his murder trial. He probably had the same look on his face when the cops pulled up Sunday.

This time, he is watching out for a friend.

One news source reported that George Zimmerman has found work. He has, but it’s not a paid job.

Much like his neighborhood watch, Zimmerman is again lying in wait for suspects. This time however, rather than Zimmerman calling the police to report anyone suspicious, he was the suspicious person.

Zimmerman is voluntarily patrolling Pompano Pat’s, a gun shop located in Deland, Florida. Last year after Zimmerman’s trial, Pompano Pat’s offered Zimmerman a free gun.

Pat Johnson of Pompano Pat’s told Click Orlando that the store was robbed earlier this month. The thieves stole rifles worth up to $5,000 and two mini-bikes, according to Johnson.

Sunday just after midnight, DeLand police officers spotted Zimmerman parked behind Pompano Pat’s and stopped to investigate.  Video from the dash camera of the police cruiser shows a closer view of their exchange.

“Zimmerman informed me that he was sitting behind the business with the permission of the owner,” the officer wrote in his incident report.

“Did Pat’s hire you?” the officer asked him.

“No, no,” Zimmerman responded.

“You’re just doing this as a friend,” the officer asked Zimmerman.

“He’s a friend of mine,” he replied.

George Zimmerman gave the police his name and address – the address is to a UPS store.  He also showed the officer a print of his painting and asked if he knew about him, saying it was a “shame” that the officer did not know.

Johnson stated that although he knows Zimmerman, he has not hired him as a security officer.  Johnson said that he had no idea that Zimmerman was watching the store and while the help is appreciated, it’s help he does not need.

Johnson sent Zimmerman a text telling him not to come back to the store.

Well, who would want to take on the liability of hiring a wannabee cop?  Who wants problems because of George Zimmerman?  Since it was locally reported, the store has received 3 death threats. Thanks a lot, Georgie.

    • Jackie, good question. His current situation; PTSD, homeless, jobless, pending divorce. Then he’s also ADD and with all of that, he is licensed to carry a gun.

      • Xena, He is only licensed as a private citizen to have concealed carry. What he doesn’t have is a Class D license–which is for unarmed security guards or a Class G–which is require for armed security guards. That came up one time before in the investigation into TM’s death when they were trying to establish whether or not he had a Class G. You can see he still doesn’t have either one by inputting his name into the licensing division: https://licensing.freshfromflorida.com/access/individual.aspx
        That site also has a contact page in which to notify them, which I would since he was acting as a security guard under definition of the law.

        From FL statue 493.6101 definitions:

        19) “Security officer” means any individual who, for consideration, advertises as providing or performs bodyguard services or otherwise guards persons or property; attempts to prevent theft or unlawful taking of goods, wares, and merchandise; or attempts to prevent the misappropriation or concealment of goods, wares or merchandise, money, bonds, stocks, choses in action, notes, or other documents, papers, and articles of value or procurement of the return thereof. The term also includes armored car personnel and those personnel engaged in the transportation of prisoners.

        Zimmerman was acting as a security officer without holding the required licenses and thereby once again breaking the law.

        • Yes, towerflower. I remember that we discussed that investigators inquired into whether he had a Class G license when he killed Trayvon.

    Tubs had texted twice 4 days ago asking where “my Deland friends were?” did not say who they were but they were not to the store owner!! There were two texts from Tubs asking Twice and before the Sunday police questioning.
    I think he was planning to rob it. But of course the owner didn’t hire or request any help.

    Tubs was either living behind his store or making plans to rob them ( basing on his two texts last week).
    I would lay money the owner had no idea he was there. His insurance would be cancelled and his landlord would evict him. This is a business. Insurance co. do NOT invite liability claims.Business leases and insurance coverage is very strict.

              Makes sense, but protection is not only in the form of guns. Protection does not always acquaint with having to use a deadly weapon. Bullets do not discriminate.

              There are cases where people with a gun have been able to stop their victimization, and cases where people with guns pulled them, and ended up being killed. The case in Nevada where the two cops were killed by ex-Bundy comrades comes to mind. The person in the Wal-Mart was a private citizen with a gun who decided to try to use it, and ended up being shot and killed by the ex-Bundy folks.

              A plenary restraining order was entered against DP, and he was also ordered to pay the plaintiff’s legal fees. As I understand it, DP’s disability income is exempt, but he has the gofundme page and there is possibility of placing a lien on those donations to pay the judgment in the restraining order case.

              Regarding the appeal; I understand that there is a schedule for its dismissal for failure to file a statement of the case. DP misrepresented to his financial donors that he cured that default, but the form he made public to them is absent the statement of the case.

          Any politician campaigning on decreasing crime is barking up the wrong tree. This is why. Victims of crimes know how the police respond and ultimately, hold the police department responsible. If they have to resort to vigilantism, it’s because the police department has made the community convenient for criminals.

          Just look at how the cops responded to Zimmerman in that dash cam! It reminded me of how they responded to Jeffrey Dahmer as he chased his bloodied victim down the street. A steadied voice and “I know ____” is all it takes for people to no longer be “suspects.”

          In the real world in communities with increased crime, the cops would have presumed that Zimmerman was carrying burglary tools, searched his vehicle, patted him down, and handcuffed him as he gave his story. Calling Pat would have been the last thing — not the first thing.

  24. A friend of mine made a very good point, he asked would a man of color have been treated as Zimmerman was, when found loitering behind a business that sells guns, that had recently been robbed, if the person of color had a criminal history involving violence with guns?

      Good question by your friend…..Sadly, I think we all know the answer.

      Based on how the cops behave in other circumstances, we should have been reading a story where the dog was shot, Zimmerman was thrown over the hood of his truck and tased, and charged with conspiracy to commit burglary, resisting, and a host of other charges.

      Then, we could read how he filed suit against the DeLand police department.

      Isn’t that how things work in other cases?

          Someone in Hollywood should redo the movie “Beverly Hills Cops” but re-title it “Cops in Florida” with Zimmerman playing the role of a criminal who gets away because the cops think they are in Beverly Hills.

It will be a good thing to watch unfold as every document prepared will be publicly posted with disparaging titles intended to harass. 🙂

        • Prints are actually a good way for an artist to make extra money, since they are cheaper to buy and thus easier to sell…so artists will sell both paintings and prints. I have some artists in my family and Lord knows they always need ways to make extra money 😉

          That being said, we’re talking about real art now, and I have severe doubts about the quality of George’s “skills”. (Not to mention that even if he was a genius, I wouldn’t want to buy any work from a cold-hearted killer! It would be kinda like buying one of Charles Manson’s paintings, ick!)

    Also, I may have already posted this but tubs tweets twice, in the same day and two days before the Sunday police chat : ” where are my Deland friends?”
    One of his genuine admirers asks him how he’s doing and tubs blows him off with something along the line of I’m fine, glad your’re fine but I need my Deland buddies.
    I mean he practically screams ” I NEED MY DELAND BUDDIES” WHERE ARE MY DELAND BUDDIES”. Really needs those guys ASAP. Something was going down. And by the way mr. Deland Policeman those ” bad guys you’re so glad the white guy is guarding against, is the BAD GUY. ( guessing you’ll watched the video of the tête-à-tête they had.)
    The ending is priceless, where tubs shows his printing of the flag and explains to the cop how he was taught to do it.

    He doesn’t “need his Deland buddies” to help guard that store. That makes no sense. He was going to break in.

  28. I just re-watched the video. So TWO cop cars showed up and then what just left without any contact from the store’s owner?

    The store owner should be filing a complaint against them. Since when does a cop buy anyone’s story without checking validity. The tape ends before they leave so did they escort him off the premises or just leave this white dude with his mf flag story to carry on?

    That giggly one that sounded like a little girl? Jesus and openly saying “yeh man we appreciate you protecting us from the bad guys”. Mr. Policeman, could you define in your mind what a “bad guy” looks like?

    I am actually going to get off my ass and file a report to the Deland mayor as a white southern grandmother. They not only displayed, for the world, what they thought a bad guy looked like, they swallowed this person’s story as being legitimate and plausible.

    At 1AM, neither cop asks for a sobriety test, proof of car ins. registration and valid Driver’s License or proof of permission to park behind a business that was JUST robbed two weeks earlier?

    Were their doughnuts getting cold? Every business owner should be protesting this shoddy lack of any actual police work.

      Here’s a question;

      After he was acquitted, what if OJ Simpson had been found sitting in the back of a business after midnight?

      The conversation:

      OJ: Don’t you know me? I was all over the news. Here’s a clipping that I keep in my truck.

      Cop: I don’t care who you are. What are you doing around here?

      OJ: I’m watching out for my friend’s business. It was robbed several weeks ago, you know.

      Cop: Are you a licensed security guard? Did your friend hire you?

      OJ: No. I’m doing it as a favor.

      Cop: Show me your hands. I’m going to cuff you until we get this figured out. Do you have anything on you, such as weapons or anything that will stick me that I need to know about?

  30. Dreamer,
    Zimmerman is very skilled in using verbal deception and deception by silence. We heard the real George Zimmerman on his NEN call of 2/26/12. His history of committing white-collar crime is documented. Even Judge Lester perceived Zimmerman’s deception is that of a “potted plant.” However, George knows if he uses the proper tone, omits the four-letter words, and justifies his actions by accusing someone of being a criminal, that he can convince LE to be blind and trust him.

    I think gz will spend the rest of his life thirsting for the waters of a good life. Because of the type of person he is, he will never taste of those refreshing waters.

    Unless he changes his ways, gz will just spend his time running after mirages and singing this song:

    “Cool, Clear Water”

    All day I face
    the barren waste
    without the taste of water,
    cool water….

    The nights are cool
    and I’m a fool
    each star’s a pool of water,
    cool water
    And with the dawn
    I wake and yawn
    and carry on to water,
    cool, clear, water

      Great sleuthing! Osterman was also fired, appealed then allowed to resign from Volusia PD. Now, due to shop owners stupidity from giving stupidlo a gun a year ago, no political office, insurance will either be cancelled or trebled and rent will double or not renewed.

      He never gave tubs permission to guard his store, it would be business suicide.
      He will pay for his gun gift that was in such poor taste ,but he felt it was the right and good thing and maybe a smart act for those who still believed in tub’s innocence a year ago. Good god, it seems so much longer than 7/13, doesn’t it?

      However, What ALWAYS follows is MAYHEM coupled with total lack of gratitude. Do you see tubs tweeting out anything in his friend’s behalf. Like, I thought I was helping. I’m terribly sorry he has received numerous death threats due to me just thinking of ME ME ME!!
      And also, wanna buy one of my paintings? 😉

  35. Remember how OJ couldn’t keep out of trouble after his trial? his stupid book wasn’t illegal but was a running start of his downfall. he moved to florida to avoid paying for the civil judgment against him. the road rage incident he was given a break on. he beat another woman and got away with it. something happened with his daughter can’t remember details..
    and who knows how many other times he broke the law w/o our knowledge.

    but the final straw was the armed burglary in vegas that put a stop to his rampage and is in prison for good.
