George Zimmerman

Alleged iPad Smashing

Caught On Video

New footage has surfaced appearing to show the moment George Zimmerman "smashed" an iPad that may contain proof he punched his father-in-law during an alleged altercation last week.

The footage was captured on a home security system moments after the alleged altercation at the Florida rental home where George and Shellie Zimmerman had been living.

Shellie told a 911 operator George took a pocket knife to the iPad and then smashed it ... and the video appears to back up the story.

While you can't actually make out a pocket knife in the footage, it's obvious George is finagling with the device ... before he tosses it on the ground.

Shellie recovers the iPad moments later.

After the incident, Shellie turned the iPad over to cops -- and they're confident they can recover any footage that was stored in the device, but acknowledge it was pretty badly damaged.

As we previously reported, Shellie initially told the 911 operator George was threatening the family with a gun ... but she later recanted her story and police say they've seen no evidence George ever had a gun.

We all know he's gonna end up in jail for something stupid. Maybe all his idiot fans can donate money to his legal fund again.

The jury that acquitted George Zimmerman of murdering Trayvon Martin must be feeling pretty d@mn stupid now. Those ignorant racists let this animal go free, when the evidence clearly showed that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon in the back while the teen was running from him. Way to go guys. You freed a teen killer.

A scorned wife. Enough said. George didn't know Shellie and her father were even at the house.

There is a video of the police admitting that they never searched GZ's vehicle. No wonder they couldn't find his gun. DUH! We know from GZ's two recent stops for speeding that he had a gun in the glove compartment. GZ has a CCW so he always has his gun with him. Even his attorney Mark O'Mara said that GZ had a gun. This is police incompetence and failure to do a proper investigation.

I found it odd that Shellie had been doing a bunch of media interviews last week. Filming George with the ipad seems to provoke him. She knows EXACTLY what she is doing. The 911 call was also found to be not entirely truthful. She must be writing a book.

Yeah, it's really unheard of for a spouse to get angry when the person they are divorcing starts taking stuff out of their house. That never happens. Stupid, desperate people here. The police didn't arrest this man so they think they can. Morons.
