On May 8, 2018, I reblogged an article published by CBS Miami that reported charges against George Zimmerman for stalking and threatening. In case anyone is unfamiliar, Zimmerman is the man who killed 17-year old, unarmed Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.
This post contains embedded documents filed with the court that you can read by clicking on the wording in blue, indicating a link. They will open in another window or tab, depending on your browser setting.
In the latest case, the charging information, request for a capias, and summons were filed on March 26, 2018. The summons was served on May 3, 2018, and on May 17, 2018, Zimmerman requested appointment of a public defender. He claimed having no source of income and being $2.5 million in debt.
On May 23, 2018, Public defender Blaise Trettis was appointed to represent Zimmerman, and entered a not guilty plea on Zimmerman’s behalf.

George Zimmerman, the Florida man acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin, has been charged with misdemeanor stalking after allegedly threatening and harassing a private investigator last year, according to Seminole County officials.
He’s accused of stalking the private investigator, Dennis Warren, in December 2017.
According to a Seminole County Sheriff’s report, Warren was hired by production company Cinemart Productions, which was producing a documentary about Martin’s 2012 death, to track down people to participate in the documentary.
Warren said he left a voicemail for Zimmerman in September 2017 asking him to participate. He told police that was his only attempt to contact Zimmerman.
According to the report, Zimmerman also allegedly texted, “Dennis is a [expletive] who bothered my uncle in his home….local or former law enforcement officer he’s well on his way to the inside of a gator as well. 10-4?”
Warren said Zimmerman began contacting him on Dec. 17, saying he received 21 phone calls, 38 text messages, and seven voicemails in a span of just over two hours. One of the voicemails allegedly said, “Answer your phone, [expletive]” and “I’ll see you before you realize it.”

George Zimmerman Calls Man A (Racial slur) Lover. He Couldn’t Wait Until Trump is Sworn-in Before Feeling His Oats
Hat Tip to Mindyme.
George Zimmerman was removed Wednesday night from a Lake Mary bar after creating a disturbance, Seminole County deputies said.
Deputies were called to the Corona Cigar Co. on Townpark Avenue at 11:04 p.m. to investigate allegations of a battery between Tony Brown and Amanda Horne, deputies said. Zimmerman was visiting the cigar company with Horne, deputies said.
While deputies were reviewing surveillance video, they said they went to the front of the store because they heard people yelling. An employee told deputies that she was trying to collect a bill from Zimmerman when he yanked his credit card out of her hand.
Chip Brown, the manager of the Corona Cigar Co., told deputies that he wanted Zimmerman trespassed, or removed, because of several “recent disturbances that he had initiated,” deputies said. Zimmerman was later trespassed by deputies.
Brown told deputies that Zimmerman later approached him and said: “I didn’t know you were a (racial slur) lover” before he left the bar Wednesday night.
Zimmerman later approached a deputy and said he wanted to prosecute a person for battery unrelated to Wednesday’s incident. When deputies tried to get more information, they said Zimmerman demanded the deputy’s business card, but then refused to accept it and walked out of the building, deputies said.
Zimmerman later called 911, identified himself as “John Doe” and asked to speak to a supervisor. Deputies said Zimmerman would not cooperate with any other questions asked by the 911 operator.
Another deputy arrived at the Corona Cigar Co. to talk to Zimmerman about his wish to prosecute a person for battery. Zimmerman told deputies that Floyd Narcisse approached him and asked, “Zimmerman, what are you doing here?” Zimmerman told deputies that he told Narcisse to leave him alone, but that Narcisse hit Zimmerman on the shoulder twice. Several witnesses disputed Zimmerman’s claims about Narcisse.
Narcisse said he walked up to Zimmerman to shake his hand, but was ignored, and he tapped Zimmerman on the shoulder, deputies said.
It’s been said by some on this blog that we anticipated hearing from George Zimmerman soon. He’s been quiet since his suspension off Twitter for tweeting revenge porn. In these past months, I’ve refrained from writing about that, in addition to writing about other things that Zimmerman does or that involves him. Today, I’m writing about him to send a message to America — THANK YOU for not allowing Zimmerman to taint the memory of Trayvon Martin. Thank you for not allowing Zimmerman to capitalize on the anger, rage, and pain that he caused on the rainy night of February 26, 2012.
The “most hated man in America” received his gun back from the DOJ, who had possession of it since his state trial ended on July 13, 2013. Zimmerman’s best friend, Mark Osterman, called Zimmerman “the most hated man in America” in the title of his book. Osterman wrote that book before Zimmerman stood trial and as we have seen, everything that Zimmerman has ventured upon since the end of his trial has proven that people do not like him.
Yesterday, the media announced that Zimmerman was auctioning off the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm gun that he used to kill Trayvon Martin. The auction was to open this morning on GunBroker.com, starting at $5,000. When I read that, I wondered if having the weapon caused Zimmerman such pain, then why not have it destroyed rather than selling it for popularity purposes. I mean, he purchased it for less than $300 so why would he think its minimum value is $5,000? Is he putting a value on it that he thinks is the equivalent of Trayvon’s life? Is he putting a value on it because he thinks his own name is worth that much? Or, is that his price to kill?
Now, it doesn’t matter what his reasons or intentions were, because the auction site cancelled the auction. Read the rest of this entry
I was just thinking yesterday that it’s been over 2 years since Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce. Her infamous husband, George Zimmerman, killed unarmed, 17-year old Trayvon Martin on February 26, 2012. He was acquitted in July 2013. Shellie filed for divorce in September 2013. A default judgment was entered in the case, but George obtained an attorney and asked that the case be reopened to divide assets and debts. The only possible asset was pending, and it was George’s suit against NBC.
Judge Debra Nelson, who also presided over George’s murder trial, dismissed his case against NBC. It went up on appeal and several months ago, the Appellate Court affirmed Judge Nelson’s ruling.
Ebony has published “The 10 Most Underreported Black Stories of 2015. The list is long, so the following are several that I found quite interesting – things I did not know.
Black Lives Matter throws support behind police shooting victim, Zachary Hammond, who was White.
The Black Lives Matter movement is serious about the message that police violence is epidemic in America. So race didn’t factor in when they took up the cause of Zachary Hammond, an unarmed, White 19-year-old South Carolina man, who was shot to death by an officer on July 26, 2015 in Seneca, South Carolina. Black Lives Matter publicly cried out for justice for Hammond, just as they did for so many other cases where Blacks were killed by cops. And just like so many others, the officer in Hammond’s case was not charged. While his family has vowed to continue to fight for justice, Black Lives Matter has included Hammond’s name in the long list of victims of excessive police brutality.
As Lincoln Blades commented in The Grio, acknowledging the systemic causes of Hammond’s death means “admitting that black folks haven’t been lying or exaggerating when we’ve said that there is a real problem with policing in America.”

This afternoon, a probable cause hearing was held in the case of the State of Florida vs. Matthew Apperson. George Zimmerman took the stand to testify of the incident of May 11, 2015.
Apperson is charged with three counts;
Attempted second degree murder with a firearm.
Shooting into an occupied vehicle.
Aggravated assault with a firearm.
During his testimony, Zimmerman was wishy-washy about what was contained in a bag in his truck, first saying that he could not identify the bag, to saying that it did not contain multiple boxes of ammunition, to then identifying at least two boxes of ammunition.
Zimmerman also testified that he had a gun in a holder that is screwed onto the dashboard of his truck, and that he removed the gun and placed it in the middle holder just before the Lake Mary police officer reached his vehicle.
Thinking that he had been shot, Zimmerman did not call 911 but proceeded down the road to get the attention of the Seminole County Sheriff. Zimmerman also claimed that he did not give a statement to the Lake Mary police that day because he thinks the department is corrupt. He also testified that he was not sure if he should go to the hospital because of his “high profile” and that people were already taking photos. Read the rest of this entry
It started with the press announcing that George Zimmerman did a painting of the confederate flag because a Florida gun shop owner is being sued. Zimmerman wants to sell prints of the painting and split the money with the gun shop owner.
Twenty-eight year old Andy Halliman, owner of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, Florida, is being sued by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, (CAIR).
Hallinan calls himself a “patriot” and thinks that his unlawful discrimination protects America. Previously, Hallinan allowed American-Muslims customers to take his gun safety course and purchase from him if they told him they had served the country and didn’t believe in the caliphate or in killing non-believers. He made them take an oath. Read the rest of this entry
So, he paints a Confederate flag over an American flag that he painted. That speaks volumes.
CREDIT: JOE BURBANK/ORLANDO SENTINEL/ASSOCIATED PRESS In this July 9, 2013, file photo, George Zimmerman leaves the courtroom for a lunch break during his trial in Seminole Circuit Court, in Sanford, Florida.
George Zimmerman, who rose to national notoriety in 2012 after shooting and killing unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, is now selling prints of a Confederate flag painting, in part to benefit a Florida gun store owner who is facing a lawsuit after declaring his business “Muslim-free.”
The prints — copies of an original work hand-painted by Zimmerman — are available for about $50 each at Florida Gun Supply in the city of Inverness. Andy Hallinan, the store’s owner, declared his store a “Muslim-free” zone in a July YouTube video, on the grounds that he did not want to “arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Seminole Circuit Judge Melanie Chase didn’t elaborate on her ruling but said, “This court finds there is no disputed issue of material fact and that the defendant, Roseanne Barr, is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.”
Robert Sr. and Gladys Zimmerman, parents of George Zimmerman, sued Roseanne Barr for tweeting out the address to their home. This happened while George Zimmerman was in hiding after killing unarmed 17-year old Trayvon Martin, and before George’s arrest.
Attorneys for Barr argued that she cannot be held culpable for republishing already publicly available information. To make the case, they showed pages from a phone book found in a library that contained the address.
Barr’s attorney, David Fink, said that Barr sharing her opinion on social media did not meet the high threshold of intentionally inflicting emotional harm. Read the rest of this entry
Let me say this before going further. I really don’t care that Matthew Apperson has been charged for shooting at George Zimmerman. I really don’t care whether Zimmerman was or wasn’t the aggressor. What I find is that this is all entertaining and as the case progresses, we shall see whether Zimmerman behaves in his demonstrated pattern.
When Zimmerman filed suit against Ames, it was reported that Zimmerman was subpoenaed for deposition, and he failed to appear.
When Zimmerman appeared at his bail hearing, and he took the stand and was cross-examined, he became physically agitated, vague, and forgetful. He never took the witness stand thereafter, even waiving his right to a stand your ground hearing, which would have required him to testify.
Zimmerman filed suit against NBC for defamation, but his lawyers did not proceed to discovery. It would have required that Zimmerman be deposed. Judge Nelson, who also presided over Zimmerman’s second degree murder case, dismissed Zimmerman’s lawsuit.
Orlando Sentinel reports;
“Mr. Zimmerman was relieved when he learned of Mr. Apperson’s arrest,” said Don West, attorney for Zimmerman. “George has confidence in the Seminole County State Attorney’s office to effectively prosecute Mr. Apperson and he will continue to cooperate in the investigation and prosecution of the case.”
We shall see. In this matter involving Matthew Apperson, we shall see whether the State’s star witness is going to cooperate by testifying, subjecting himself to cross-examination by defense attorneys. Maybe the interrogation and mischaracterization of testimony and events committed by Don West upon Rachel Jentel in Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial, will come back to haunt Zimmerman. Can he withstand two days in the witness boxed being asked the same questions in 10 different ways? Read the rest of this entry
At about 1 pm in Lake Mary, FL, on Lake Mary Blvd near 1-4, George Zimmerman was once again making the news. I don’t know about you but I’m not surprised, I made a comment the other day on Twitter how it was about time for him to once again make the news.
It involved a road rage incident (his second). The driver of a Lexus claims that Zimmerman waved a gun at him so he fired back. The bullet entered the passenger side window of Zimmerman’s Honda and Zimmerman was slightly injured in the face by flying glass/debris. The bullet missed him.
The driver of the other car drove to a strip center and begged a man returning from lunch to call 911 for him, and that he just shot George Zimmerman. It should be interesting to note that this center is very near his former ex-girlfriend’s dentist office from his last domestic violence incident. Read the rest of this entry
Written by scrodriguez.
Here we go again same (expletive), different toilet. George Zimmerman is playing the blame game again. This time he has pointed the finger at President Barack Obama stating that our president is to blame for racial tensions surrounding the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Of course we expect the typical “I am not to blame” campaign headed by Zimmerman. after all his past clearly proves this right? I mean it wasn’t his fault that he was following an unarmed teen in the middle of the night first by car then by foot he didn’t create any scenario at all that would leave a kid to feel threatened no not good ole Georgie.
George follows the book, respects the law. (snark) I mean that is evidenced by him disregarding the neighborhood watch handbook guide in which the Director of neighborhood watch clearly stated, time and time again, not to follow anybody. The handbook clearly states you are the eyes and ears for law enforcement — not the vigilante. George’s actions remind me of a statement made at his trial by Rachel Jentel.
In fact, George was even reminded this on his non-emergency call when he reported a suspicious looking black teen walking through the Retreat at Twin Lakes. And of course, after several neighborhood watch meetings, after having read the handbook given to him and being reminded on the non-emergency call not to follow, George did not follow those instructions. In the end, he said it was Trayvon’s fault for his own death.
Oh wait – maybe it was the dispatcher’s fault for asking if he wanted to meet the arriving officer at the mailbox. Maybe it was the day of the week’s fault because he and Shellie always grocery shopped on Sunday evenings after he cooked dinner for her – although Shellie had left George the day before and was at her dad’s.

Reblogged from News One. (Not directly reblogged because of the size of a photo that might be a trigger alert for those traumatized by the face of George Zimmerman.)
In a newly released video, George Zimmerman — the former neighborhood watchman acquitted of murder in 2013 — blames President Obama for stirring racial tensions following the fatal shooting of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin in 2012.
Zimmerman, who pursued and approached the 17-year-old as he walked to his father’s house, can be heard on the March 8 recording saying he was victimized by Obama and wrongly accused of being a racist by the media.
The Orlando Sentinel writes:
“…he faulted the media for portraying him as a racist and the criminal justice system for bringing him to trial but saved his harshest criticism for Obama, whom he accused of trying to prosecute “an innocent American.”
“For him to make incendiary comments as he did and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution, he by far over-stretched, over-reached,” Zimmerman said. The president, whom he referred to as “Barack Hussein Obama,” should have told the public, ” ‘Let’s not rush to judgment,’ ” Zimmerman said.”
The recording, released by his Tampa divorce lawyer Howard Iken of Ayo and Iken PLC, marks Zimmerman’s first public comments since the DOJ announced in February that he did not violate Trayvon’s rights. Since his acquittal and even during his numerous run-ins with the law following the trial, Zimmerman has remained mum and “still tightly guards his privacy,” according to The OS.

George Zimmerman’s girlfriend has recanted.
“While it is clear that the officers had probable cause to arrest Mr. Zimmerman which was affirmed by the circuit court judge at initial appearances, the subsequent recantation by the victim of her initial statement along with new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further,” State Attorney Phil Archer said.”
Zimmerman, 31, was arrested earlier this month and charged with aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon. Previously, Zimmerman was arrested on domestic violence charges involving another woman, and in that case, his girl friend recanted her story.
Zimmerman appears to connect himself with women who are too afraid to proceed on charges.
Here’s the body cam video of Zimmerman’s girlfriend, Brittany Brunelle, reporting what happened with Zimmerman.
Oddly enough, Jackie and I were discussing in the comment section how Zimmerman might use blackmail to control his victims. Listen to Brittany and see that is exactly what he threatened to do to her unless she did what he wanted.
It started in the Circuit Court for Seminole County, Florida. It was then transferred to the federal court. There was no amount in the prayer for relief. In June 2014, a federal magistrate judge ruled that the case did not meet the minimum federal damages of $75,000 in damages. The case was transferred back to the state circuit court.
For those unfamiliar, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman, parents of George Zimmerman, filed suit against Rosanne Barr. In July 2013, George Zimmerman was acquitted for killing unarmed 17-year old Trayvon Martin. The Zimmerman’s allege that Rosanne tweeted out the address to their home forcing them to move in the middle of the night and live in hiding. They accused Barr of trying to incite a “lynch mob.”
After the case was transferred back to the circuit court, the Zimmerman’s claimed damages that included doing their laundry. They asked Barr to settle the case for $750,000. Barr’s attorneys’ actions thereafter conveyed to the Zimmerman’s to kick sand.
On Friday, George Zimmerman was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, and domestic violence involving a weapon. We have since learned that the weapon was a wine bottle.
On February 26 , 2012, George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year old Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman called the police non emergency number reporting a suspicious person. Travyon was returning from a convenience store, walking to Brandi Green’s house, where he and his dad were staying. Trayvon was unarmed.
Zimmerman abandoned his rental townhouse that same night, and did not return to work thereafter.
It was not until April 2012 that Zimmerman was charged with 2nd degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
The weekend before his arrest, George Zimmerman opened a website and requested financial donations to a legal defense fund. After his arrest, the money began pouring in. Via the jail house telephone, he instructed his wife Shellie on transferring the money and paying off their debts. At a subsequent bond hearing, George Zimmerman sat in court like a “potted palm” while his wife denied knowledge of the money. George also kept hidden that he had a valid passport in a safety deposit box.
By motion of the State’s Attorney, Zimmerman’s bond was revoked. He had a subsequent bond hearing where Judge Lester stated that he believed that if it was not for the ankle bracelet, that Zimmerman would have left the country with other people’s money. Shellie was charged with perjury.
Around December 2012, George, Shellie, and Mark O’Mara were sued by a security firm for breach of contract and failure to pay.
On July 13, 2013, a jury of six women acquitted George Zimmerman. Following his acquittal, Shellie appeared in court and entered a plea agreement on the perjury charges. She then announced that she filed for divorce. Read the rest of this entry
Hat Tip to Towerflower.
Yes – I checked to make sure this wasn’t his arrest from 2013. I even went directly to the Sheriff’s website and entered his name to be sure.
George Zimmerman was arrested Friday evening and has been charged with Aggravated Assault, Domestic Violence, involving a weapon.
There’s no news on it yet, however.
As soon as something is published, we’ll update it here.
Since no one was paying him attention, George Zimmerman called into the Armed American Radio to express how his life has gone and stays downhill since he killed unarmed 17-year old Trayvon Martin.
According to Raw Story, George told Armed American Radio;
“I don’t really remember what normal is,” Zimmerman said. “I’ll tell you that I’m not working – I enjoyed working, I enjoyed being a productive, taxpaying member of society. I haven’t worked since the incident, so in terms of the violent threats, the bounty on my head, I haven’t seen on any of the bounty posters an expiration date.”
The “bounty” was for an arrest. He’s not working because he thought that his supporters would financially support him. That turned out to be a disappointment. George even started a blog and after 2 months, turned off the widget that reports the number of views because they were so low. His blog has one comment from one supporter. People don’t want to be associated with him anymore than they want to be publicly associated with the blogger who commented on his blog.
THE MANY FACES OF GEORGE ZIMMERMAN
It happened today around noon EST. Before entering the courthouse, Frank Taaffe spoke with reporters.
Frank Taaffe is a former vocal supporter of George Zimmerman, who felt no shame using racial slurs and denigrating the Black race. Today, he appeared before the federal grand jury.
The FBI began investigating George Zimmerman in or about April 2012. To the State of Florida, they released interviews of individuals, some of whom testified of Zimmerman’s racial animus and others who did not. Because of that George Zimmerman’s supporters assumed that the FBI closed its investigation. However, pre-trial, Zimmerman’s defense attorney, Mark O’Mara, attempted to get the FBI’s file on Zimmerman and was told in open court that the investigation was ongoing.
In September 2013, I posted an article on how the Department of Justice prosecutes hate crimes, supported by the statements and experience of Benjamin B. Wagner, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of California. Read the rest of this entry
