Good....throw him in prison with OJ and the rest of the bunch. Remember if you get into trouble be sure it's in Florida or California they are weak on crime in both states and their legal system is a joke.

So let me get this straight...Zimmerman had all this money tied up (which is easily 3K or more) in his gun 'collection', but was supposedly 2.5 million dollars in debt with only $144 dollars to his name (even though he stated he was just about to move to Texas)?? He enters a plea for indigence because he couldn't afford to pay for his own legal fees or electronic monitoring, yet asks the courts for his iPhone and Blackberry back? Wait...what? And to top it all off, it seems he has now dropped the Public Defender and hired a Private Defense Attorney. Why weren't any of these guns listed as an asset in his initial plea and how TF do you go from being 2.5million dollars in debt with only $144 bucks in your wallet to now hiring a Private Attorney? This dude is just so beyond shady that it makes me sick.

Great FEAR MONGERING piece TMZ. 100 rounds. Holy Moly two small boxes of bullets. What happened no lame Miley news to print, you have to put this guy and his crazy girlfriend in the spotlight. LAME reporting TMZ. We can all tell from the tone and attitude of his girlfriends 911 call that she wasn't scared and he never pointed a gun at her, she just new it would get results, and get her in TMZ. Leave the MURDERER alone. Go report some real news, like the LOST BOY who said he was diddled by Hollywood.

Five guns and a hundred rounds is hardly a stockpile. Doesn't change the fact that Zimmerman is a murdering douche, though.

WTF. 5 guns and 100 rounds of ammo ? That's not even a beginner's collection. A small collection would be 25 guns and 25,000 rounds. People who don't have gun experience should do some serious research before they inject their opinion on the issue. I figured zimmerman would own a LOT more guns than that. 5 is a tiny collection.

This guy is either the dumbest person alive or hasn't learned his lesson. Or is he just looking for publicity at this point. Can he actually be as dumb as a box of rocks or does he really love jail and is dying to go back?

Hey, this guy got all you righties to send him money to buy thousands of dollars of guns, yet every time he goes to court he whines like a baby and says he is broke and wants the taxpayers to bail him out and pay for his defense. He should sell his guns a dn ammo first!!!! The joke is on you! You all got taken for a ride..This guy has a new truck lives in a nice house, yet lies every time he gets caught and blames it on everybody else but him. Gods' will will catch up to you Georgie

Why a religious pendant?

Since when are a pocket knife and a religious pendant confiscatable items? Also if he he had permits for all the weapons and ammo, why was it all confiscated? They are hoping to steal it and sell it if he gets convicted on this probably trumped up charge.


He shouldn't have trusted this woman in my opinion. He should have tried to work things out with Shellie or just stayed alone or with his parents. Shellie is probably a handful and he is probably overwhelmed with stress.


Basically there is no hard evidence that he did anything with a gun that was illegal. She said he broke her table, with a gun and threatened her with a gun. He says he did not.


Why would he do something that stupid really with all the trouble he has had with the law? This story is not adding up for me. She is basically nothing to him but someone he ran away to to escape Shellie.

Let's think about this. They confiscated a RELIGIOUS MEDAL as part of a gun crime accusation. What in the world does that have to do with any crime? Is it a crime to believe in Jesus now, is that the point they are trying to make. THIS IS INSANE. Again.


Are they persecuting him for being a Christian? Are they against him for being a good God fearing man who wanted to protect his neighborhood? I guess anyone one like is a lunatic with no rights any more, ist hat it????


Trayvon got what he deserved and justice won. Is that what the problem is? Did they have their heart set on staring a race war over a fictitiously spun incident? If they make George out to be a serial killer, it doesn't change the fact that he was justified in killing Trayvon.


Black people, white people, stop being manipulated by the system. Stop allowing them to take our rights away.
