George Zimmerman

HANDCUFFED ON TAPE

'Get on Your Knees!!!'

It's like a scene out of "America's Most Wanted" -- cops swarmed George Zimmerman's car yesterday and ordered him to get down on his knees before handcuffing and detaining him ... all over a domestic dispute involving his estranged wife ... and the insane moment was caught on tape.

Lake Mary PD just released the dashcam footage to TMZ, showing a police cruiser careening down the street and coming to a stop about 50 yards away from George's car, parked outside the home he shared with his estranged wife ... before she filed for divorce.

It's all in the video ... police ordered George to get out of his vehicle, turn around, and get on his knees. George complied and he was immediately handcuffed.

As we reported, George's estranged wife Shellie called 911, claiming George had threatened her and her dad inside their home ... gesturing toward his gun. She also accused George of punching her dad in the face.

George was briefly detained for questioning following the incident, but Shellie eventually changed her story -- claiming no gun was ever involved -- and declined to press charges. George was eventually released without being arrested.

What was he accused of, punching a man in the nose and leaving no injury, dissembling an I pad, putting his hand on a gun . . . for this they needed to take him down like a terrorist with a machine gun? I am not buying this whole story. What is his crime?


People make up all kinds of crazy stories about him like it is the gospel truth. Where is the evidence that he had a gun and his lawyer someone appeared on the scene and removed it and then quit representing him?


Why must we live in a country based on lies and slander? Laws are supposed to be interpreted on facts, not public opinion.

If he punches someone in the face isnt that automatic assault? That was a stupid thing to do either way she should have pressed charges cuz he's not going away.

Give this b**ch a chance and she will do anything she has to, to try to get more of that defense fund money. She doesn't deserve a penny. She was upset because he had another woman waiting in his car outside.

Uh    

When are you going to understand? Your "day" in court has nothing to do with whether you did the :"deed"..It's about whether the "deed" was legal or not with respect to the law and to what degree. The "kid" had been expelled from school, thrown out of his house , etc in other words a "thug"..not the darling angelic child portrayed by the media. Under the "law" George committed self-defense. I wasn't there..I have no idea what actually happened. The jury knew the "kid" was was a thug. George looked like the "Lone Ranger" in comparison. I don't think he was within his rights to have shot him. But until the "Law" is changed?? How many of you have initiated change (law)? And so it goes.

The media is after this guy. They tried him for Murder and found him not guilty. The media found him guilty, and now are going to do everything they can to make sure if he does anything they deem out of line, they will make it public.

If this guy Pees on a toilet seat, it would make headlines. And the people that think he is guilty didn't listen to the whole case. The kid wasnt all innocent like the media made him out to be. The pictures they showed were 3 and 4 years old. He was addicted to a Cough Syrup based drink called Lean. Look up what he bought from the store. Any person with a couple brain cells can see that.
