Lake Mary Chief of Police Has Concerns About Zimmerman

NBC News reports that  Steve Bracknell, Police Chief of Lake Mary, Florida, has concerns about George Zimmerman being able to legally have guns.  “I’m a small-town police chief.

After the verdict of not guilty, all evidence was retained by the Department of Justice who is conducting investigation into whether George Zimmerman violated Trayvon Martin’s civil rights.  That evidence includes the gun that Zimmerman used to kill unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and the holster.  However, Zimmerman’s conceal carry license was restored to him.

iPad Video Could Be Key To Charging George Zimmerman

Fox News reports that video from Shellie Zimmerman’s iPad may be crucial evidence in determining whether to charge George Zimmerman.

Yesterday, Shelly Zimmerman said that George snatched the iPad from her hands, smashed it, and used a pocket night to open it up destroying parts on the inside.

Funny thing — Rachel Jeantel testified to hearing a man’s voice ask, “What are you doing around here?” followed by a “bump” indicating disconnection of Trayvon’s cell phone from his headset.  Physical crime scene evidence supports that Trayvon’s cell phone was on the ground, disconnected from his headset when the cops arrived.  Seems as though George Zimmerman has a pattern of destroying, or attempting to destroy communication devices  that might record his actions and/or words.
