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.

If he had a gun in the glove compartment of his truck, SO WHAT??? Doesn't mean anything especially since Shellie changed her story.

Is Shellie making a self-pleasuring porn,
or is it going to be a full gonzo hard-core?

She's not one bit afraid while she's making that call. She even approaches him. I'm not defending his messing with the I-pad, although there may be some dispute over it. It seems clear to me she is lying about the incident.

George, I contacted O'Mara yesterday morning asking he get you into counseling before you self destruct. Later read he dropped you as a client. George you need to not only pay your attorney but volunteer to help his firm in whatever way you can for keeping you out of prison, before paying your wife. Dumb Ass

Ooooh, Georgie's losin' it! Destroying evidence? Who'da thought? EVERYONE!
.
I'm SO loving seeing the evidence that so many imbeciles have denied over the last almost 2 years that George the Devil is a naughty boy. And you know, it's only going to get worse/more juicy until he finally O.J's himself right the hell into prison. Or 6 feet under. Whichever... I'm game for either as he deserves both.

Someone needs to treat George like Osama he is a threat!!! Find the beady-eyed psycho and trayvon him. U could win the case since he is a "threat" already. If I ever see him "I'm gonna be in fear of my life" so I'd have to take precautions right? Come on my fellow blacks wake up!!! Play this game how they playing it!!!

Well he's assaulted a cop, has been accused of domestic violence against his previous fiance, shot an unarmed kid dead who he was stalking, is accused of threatening his wife and FIL as well as assaulting him, is on video trying to destroy evidence that can be used against him and so on and so forth yet I guess for many people the man can do no wrong. No wonder he seems to feel like he can get away with anything, for the most part it seems like he can.
