George Zimmerman

Police Chief Says

I Wouldn't Want to Be His Neighbor

One person is on record that George Zimmerman is not the guy you want as your next door neighbor ... the Chief of Police of Lake Mary, Florida.

Police Chief Steve Bracknell tells TMZ, he's frustrated Shellie Zimmerman changed her story. She now says George did not have his hand on a gun in a threatening manner while arguing with her father.

Chief Bracknell says of Zimmerman, "The guy just can't stay out of the news" -- referring to the Trayvon Martin killing, speeding tickets and now this.  Bracknell says, "You'd think he'd get the heck out of Dodge."

We're told Shellie recanted her story after talking to her lawyer. The Chief said because of her flip-flopping, "There was not enough to affect an arrest, unfortunately." 

Bracknell seems concerned that Zimmerman is bent on causing trouble, saying, "It's smoke, smoke smoke.  Is there a fire somewhere?  Lord knows." 

We asked him if he'd feel safe if Zimmerman was his next door neighbor.  The Chief was clear ... "I would not want to be the neighbor of George Zimmerman."

Of course not after the hate filled liberal news media (like TMZ) has effectively crucified Zimmerman for doing something good for the world. And don't give me that "He jez beez eatin his skiddles" nonsense.

Zimmerman is going to end up in prison for something he does, and it's going to be sooner rather than later.

OJ Simpson 2.0 Couldn't just be thankful for getting away with murder, what a narcissist. I wouldnt so much as jaywalk for the rest of my life if I was lucky enough to be found innocent. Give this man time and he'll do himself in.

Looking like fabrication by the wife to smear Zimmerman further, possibly gettting him arrested, and get a leg-up in the divorce.
