Sadly, George Zimmerman will be haunted forever — and draw headlines forever — over anything he does or has happen to him.
Well, folks, by now (unless you read this at around 4 pm today when I posted it,) you know that last Sunday, Zimmerman was pulled over by a local police officer in Forney, TX, for speeding. He offered up to the officer that he had a gun in his glove box (I assume that TX and FL are reciprocal with CCW permits) and here’s what that good cop said:
“Alright,I’m gonna go back and just check you, routinely. The reason you were stopped was for your speed, why don’t you slow down a little bit for me and, as long as you don’t have any warrants, I’ll cut you loose with a warning. Just take it easy, go ahead and shut your glove compartment and don’t play with your firearm, OK?” the officer said before returning to his vehicle to check for warrants.
After checking for warrants, the officer returned Zimmerman’s license and registration and advised Zimmerman to “have a safe trip.”
If Zimmerman had been pulled over in NY, NJ, MD, CA, or almost anywhere other than the great state of Texas, he’d be in jail on some trumped-up charges. Fortunately, it was Texas.
Good on the police officer. I suspect that, being a Texan who isn’t from “away” as many are in liberal bastions such as Austin, he was sympathetic to all that Zimmerman had gone through in the past year. And, he understood that while George might not have a destination in mind, he certainly was trying to get the hell out of the spotlight in Florida.
Alas, that spotlight from the liberal MSM has followed him on his trip out west, and will make a BF-Deal out of this.
Because, you know, stuff that actually matters to the 300-million Americans, such as jobs, the economy, and the government spying on every cellphone call or email they send, or the IRS playing political favorites and demons with tax-payers, aren’t all that important.
