George Zimmerman

Plays DEATH THREAT Card

George Zimmerman
needs to keep a low profile -- behind super dark tinted windows -- because he's getting death threats ... at least that's what Zimmerman told Florida cops.

Zimmerman was pulled over last month by a Florida Highway Patrol officer who told him the tint on his truck was too dark, and his license plate was not displayed properly.

Zimmerman told the cop he needed the extra cover because he's been getting death threats. He was not more specific about the nature of the threats.

Instead of getting slapped with a ticket for the violation, Zimmerman caught a break ... again.

The officer let him go with a written warning.

This happened last month, why is it being brought up now ? Next are you going to report what fast food restaurant he drove through. I guess some people never tire of beating a dead horse.

So, it is ok for a killer to have illegal window tinting. How many illegal things will this guy catch a break on commiting? WTF? This is looking very bad for Florida.

Well, it's not written anywhere that a gossip site should be objective. But no need to pile on the sarcasm. Let it go TMZ, let it go.

And why is he receiving death threats? Maybe it's all the idiots that sent massive amounts of money to his defense fund that he and his estranged wife are now living off of, since the State of Florida has to pay all his defense bills. He doesn't even have to work, thanks to those fools.

George is now a celeb, when hunting down black criminals, he needs some screen, of course!

What do you expect? They're Florida cops, not the brightest ticket in the books.
