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."

Well, I hope the gun nuts in Florida are happy with their "hero". He certainly is costing them, (and the rest of Florida) a lot of money for law enforcement and judicial expenses. Lowlife murderer.

There's a problem here    

Fortunately/Unfortunately (depending on your spin) George is a wannabe with delusions of grandeur who can't avoid what's coming his way. If he is not stopped now he'll probably take out a white guy and then things will be different ... very, very different.

GZ should get a black bodyguard. If there's anyone who knows how scary and threatening a black guy looks it's GZ, right?

Stupid of her to back down, but then she hasn't shown herself to have any character. If she had a brain in her head and an ounce of class, she would have dumped him after he murdered Trayvon. I noticed on the 911 call, her dad tells her that george has a woman in his truck and she keeps saying omg. I wonder if she'll write a book now and tell what georgie boy is really like.

How many times did george the murderer call 911 over the past few years...mainly to report black guys "acting suspiciously". I hope he enjoyed being on the other end of it this time.

At least OJ stayed out of trouble after he was first acquitted. He got his ass out of LA and went to Miami and It took him 13 years to get arrested again. He's king bonehead too. This guy walks with no question that he did it and immediately finds himself constantly screwing up. Kinda like that day he didn't listen to the 911 operator. This is the guy that had all these rabid supporters...
