Lake Mary police announced Wednesday that they are not going to charge George Zimmerman with stealing a king-sized bed, antique chair and several other pieces of furniture from his mother-in-law's rental house where he lived for several months.

Department spokesman Officer Zach Hudson characterized the matter as "a civil dispute".

No criminal charges will be filed against George Zimmerman in dispute with wife
Published October 23, 2013

SANFORD, Fla. –  A police spokesman says no criminal charges will be filed against George Zimmerman in a dispute last month with his estranged wife.

Lake Mary Officer Zach Hudson said Wednesday that investigators had decided the dispute didn't rise to a criminal level.

The dispute last month came just days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers.

Trayvon Martin's mom: Stand your ground laws 'open to abuse'
By Elizabeth Chuck, Staff Writer, NBC News October 29, 2013

 

The mother of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed teen shot to death in 2012, is appearing before a Senate panel Tuesday to demand that states make their "stand your ground" self-defense laws clearer.

"By being unclear in when and how it is applied, stand your ground in its current form is far to open to abuse," Sybrina Fulton will say, according to prepared testimony for the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Associated Press reported.

Stand-your-ground laws are on the books in at least 22 states and change the legal definition of self-defense for citizens who feel they are being confronted with deadly force or imminent danger, canceling their duty to retreat. But Fulton is arguing at the 10 a.m. hearing that the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting of her 17-year-old son and the acquittal of George Zimmerman over the summer shows that the laws are confusing.

 


Stand your ground laws are sometimes referred to as "Shoot First" laws by detractors. Florida had the first one, in 2005. They were part of the public discussion around the Zimmerman trial; although the legal team arguing on behalf of Zimmerman did not ask for an immunity hearing under the law, the instructions given to the jury borrowed language from the statute.

Normally, a citizen has a duty to retreat when confronted with what they perceive to be deadly force. The stand your ground doctrine mostly removes that, meaning citizens who feel threatened are no longer required to try to quell a situation first before having the right to use deadly force in self-defense.

Gun rights groups, like the National Rifle Association, argue stand your ground laws are about protecting the right to self-defense.

Ted Cruz Explains to Trayvon Martin’s Mother How ‘Stand Your Ground’ Laws Help Protect the Black Community
Oct. 29, 2013 6:17pm

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) came face-to-face with Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, on Capitol Hill during a Tuesday hearing on “Stand Your Ground” laws. After offering his condolences to Fulton, Cruz told the mother that the self-defense laws are not racist because they help blacks as much as whites, if not more.

Cruz also explained that, despite some efforts to exploit Martin’s death, George Zimmerman’s defense team never used Stand Your Ground laws as a defense in the murder trial.

“We know that some in our political process have a desire to exploit that tragic, violent incident for agendas that have nothing to do with that young man who lost his life. We have seen efforts to undermine the verdict of the jury and, more broadly, to inflame racial tensions that I think are sad and irresponsible,” the Texas senator added.

Cruz went on to refute the “remarkable” allegation that Stand Your Ground laws do not protect black communities.

“I think that’s a remarkable statement on many, many fronts, including the fact that a great many African-Americans find themselves victims of violent crime, and have asserted this defense to defend themselves, defend their families, defend their children,” he explained.

The assertion is even more “remarkable,” Cruz said, when you consider that in 2004, “a state senator in Illinois by the name of Barack Obama co-sponsored an expansion of Illinois’ law providing civil immunity for those who use justifiable force to defend themselves.”

“Stand Your Ground” opponents mangle law and Trayvon facts at Senate Hearing
Posted by Andrew Branca      Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 5:46pm

This morning Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois held a US Senate hearing nominally on the subject of Stand Your Ground laws.

Here I’ll just share an overview of the testimony, along with my own general observations. (More detailed posts will likely follow.)

US Senate hearing: “Stand Your Ground: Civil rights and Public Safety Implications of the Expanded Use of Deadly Force”

My first general observation is that the anti-SYG folks were, as experience would suggest, big on emotion and small on actual facts, law, or data.

One of the anti-SYG witnesses, Professor Sullivan from Harvard Law School, did raise some actual data–but when these were utterly destroyed by the later testimony of Dr. John Lott and Elliot Shapiro of CATA, Professor Sullivan was swift to discount the use of data (which he himself had introduced into the testimony) and instead focus on the “real people” behind the data. In sharp contrast, the testimony of the pro-SYG speakers was focused and direct.

Second, the anti-SYG folks persistently conflated the legal concept of Stand Your Ground with utterly discrete legal concepts, such as presumptions of reasonableness and civil/criminal immunity.

When this is done by people without legal training or experience, such as Sabrina Fulton, one can of course accept it as an unknowing error. When it is persistently done by a Harvard Law Professor and a head of an (allegedly) leading association of State Prosecutors, one can only wonder at either their actual intent or their underlying intelligence.

Indeed, their misstatements of the law were so egregious that at one point Dr. Lott was obliged to read aloud from the actual Florida statute they had badly mischaracterized, to which they naturally had no substantive response. In that case they were claiming that even criminal aggressors could claim Stand Your Ground privilege under Florida law, a claim that the plain language of the statute read by Dr. Lott clearly destroys.

In any case, it is clear that their effort is intended to be a broad attack on all three fronts — likely with immunity being the true target, as it represents the largest pot of gold for their supporters — rather than any focused concern on Stand Your Ground, per se.

Finally, the bottom line is I expect this hearing, and any similar subsequent efforts, to be little more than political theater, with no substantive changes resulting to the law of self-defense.

Ben Crump flooded with civil rights cases after Trayvon
Yamiche Alcindor, USA TODAY 9:38 p.m. EDT October 27, 2013

Benjamin Crump quickly lists his latest clients: There's the Pittsburgh teenager paralyzed by police bullets. The family of the Florida man who suffocated under a police cruiser. The California woman who lost consciousness while handcuffed in the back of a police car and died at a hospital soon after.

The common theme: a black person whose rights allegedly were violated by police. It's an area of law that has people from all over the country calling Crump, a Tallahassee attorney made famous by representing the parents of Trayvon Martin.

Headlines now herald Crump's cases, and the people he represents become subjects of national media attention. Some caution against high-profile attorneys like Crump who may grandstand and complicate cases. But others have started comparing Crump to past legal stars.
 
However, Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, paints a different portrait of Crimp. O'Mara questioned Crump's ethics, pointing to claims he made against Zimmerman and the circumstances surrounding Trayvon's shooting.

"A lot of what he said was happening was all personal opinion or misinterpretation of the facts," O'Mara said. "That is very frustrating to me because I feel as lawyers we are bound by ethical constraints."

O'Mara added that he would be happy to see Crump zealously representing "the downtrodden" but hopes Crump is adhering to the ethics of the bar.
 
Crump, 44, and his legal partner, Daryl Parks,started their firm in 1995 shortly after graduating from law school at Florida State University.

The Parks & Crump Law Firm handles mostly cases of personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice, but civil rights cases have flooded the office since Crump began holding strongly worded press conference calling for the arrest of Zimmerman.
 

For every 50 calls, he said, at least one is worth taking. He weighs the financial costs of taking a case and the likelihood that a civil suit can be won. Like most plaintiff's lawyers, he gets paid only if his clients win.

George Zimmerman, civil-rights hero?
Stunning exposé reveals efforts to seek justice for black man
Published: 12 hours ago

George Zimmerman a civil-rights hero?

That’s one of the eye-openers in Jack Cashill’s new book “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,” published Tuesday by WND Books.

It was Zimmerman, acquitted by a jury in July of second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, who led the charge to bring to justice for a black man assaulted by a white teenager in 2011.
 
Zimmerman, he said, worked with “the local NAACP and Natalie Jackson – who would become part of Team Trayvon – to seek justice for Ware, and they all betrayed him after the incident with Trayvon Martin, because it was in their best interest to pretend they didn’t know who he was.”

The story of Zimmerman’s crusade has largely gone unreported, through mainstream media indifference and the labeling of anyone who mentions it as “racist,” said Cashill.

“Robert Zimmerman tried to get out this story, but Natalie Jackson said that he was playing the ‘race card’ (calling Zimmerman a racist), and the mainstream media didn’t want to know this side of Zimmerman, because they had their narrative and they didn’t want any information to get out that contradicted it,” Cashill wrote.

Jack Cashill's If I Had a Son

The definitive account of the conspiracy to send George Zimmerman to prison for the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin is reaching bookstores today. Jack Cashill's If I had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman is a must-read for anyone interested in race, justice and the corruption of the American mass media. You may think you know everything you need to know about the case, if you followed it as avidly as many American Thinker readers (and editors) did. But you would be wrong. This masterful and very readable narrative not only assembles and places into context the reported facts, it explains why the case developed as it did.

At the heart of the effort to inject race into a case that was self-evidently a matter of self defense to the police and prosecutors who in initially investigated is what Cashill labels the Black Grievance Industry, or BGI. Benjamin Crump, a black Tallahhassee attorney who had gained fame and fortune suing on behalf of blacks claiming racial victimization was brought in early by Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father, through personal contacts. Crump assembled what Cashill termed "Team Trayvon," including Sanford attorney Natalie Jackson and an Orlando-based media strategist, Ryan Julison. They served as chief strategists, manufacturing memes. They were aided and abetted by key media outlets, from the Orlando Sentinel, which at first reported in a straightforward manner for a local readership and then ran into the BGI, to The New York Times and especially ABC News, which assisted the BGI and Team Trayvon in manufacturing a false narrative, betraying both their journalistic responsibilities and the cause of justice. Inevitably, Al Sharpton quickly leapt into the fray, followed by Jesse Jackson, fearful of being cut out.

Holder Appears to be Backing Away from Civil Rights Charges Against Zimmerman
November 4, 2013 - 2:52 pm

Attorney General Eric Holder’s tone today at a press conference indicated that the Justice Department may be inching away from filing any criminal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman.

Holder agreed to look at the case in April. Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin in February 2012 and was acquitted of second-degree murder in July.

Taking a wide range of questions from reporters today, Holder was asked what the timeframe is for an announcement or a decision on the case.

“Mr. Attorney General, why haven’t federal charges been filed against George Zimmerman yet?” a reporter asked.

“Well, the case of George Zimmerman and what happens there, I mean, I think, in substantial part was resolved in the case that was tried,” Holder responded. “The investigation or the inquiry, the review that we are doing is still under way. I’m not sure exactly how much longer that will take, but we will, when we get to a point where we are able to make a determination, we’ve tried to construct the case in such a way that we’ll be able to share as much information, not just make an announcement, but to share as much information as we can with regard to that — that determination.”

Criminal civil rights charges unlikely for George Zimmerman

WASHINGTON —
The head of the Department of Justice said he hasn't officially decided whether to file criminal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, but the tone in his answers seemed to indicate it wouldn't happen, according to Channel 9's Greg Warmoth.

Attorney General Eric Holder said he's not sure how much longer the department will review the case after civil rights groups called for hate crime charges against Zimmerman, who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Sanford last year.
 
But he had cautioned in subsequent remarks that the DOJ faces a "very high barrier" when seeking to bring federal criminal charges in such cases.

It appears that may be the case here, Warmoth said.

Sanford police chief clarifies gun rules for Neighborhood Watch volunteers
3:46 p.m. EST, November 5, 2013

Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith on Tuesday clarified his position on whether Neighborhood Watch volunteers in his city will be allowed to carry firearms, blaming the confusion on his own faulty language.

Neighborhood Watch volunteers won't be banned from carrying handguns, but participants of a different program, Citizens on Patrol, will be, he said.

When Smith was hired as chief seven months ago, he said he found Neighborhood Watch in disarray with various groups operating with their own set of rules and no accountability.

Part of the effort to revamp both of Sanford's community programs is to distinguish Neighborhood Watch from Citizens on Patrol and set policies that would absolve police of any liability should volunteers use a gun as part of their duties.

Lawmakers defeat bill to repeal Stand Your Ground; expand immunity in warning shot cases

TALLAHASSEE --  A panel of state lawmakers on Thursday soundly rejected a proposal to repeal the Stand Your Ground self-defense law, but enthusiastically approved a pitch to expand Stand Your Ground immunity to people who fire a warning shot.

The votes took place at a highly anticipated hearing that lasted five hours before the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee. Nearly 300 people attended, and scores signed up to give their opinion on the controversial law.

Zimmerman defense team offers insights to panel at UB-sponsored mock trial event
on November 7, 2013 - 7:41 PM

Two lawyers who represented defendant George Zimmerman in the high-profile Trayvon Martin murder trial talked Thursday about their trial techniques and strategies that helped lead to an acquittal.

Attorneys Mark O’Mara, who was Zimmerman’s lead counsel, and Don West, a 1980 graduate of the University at Buffalo Law School, discussed the Florida case before about 250 law students at a panel discussion as part of the 10th annual Buffalo Niagara Trial Competition.

West may be best remembered for the knock-knock joke that fell flat with jurors during his opening statement. But O’Mara credited West for his work in persuading the judge not to allow the jury to consider a lesser murder charge.

A key moment came near the end of the trial when both sides suggested what the judge should include in her instructions to jurors before deliberations. Prosecutors for the first time suggested that the judge allow jurors to consider the less serious charges of manslaughter and third-degree murder based on child abuse, arguing that since Trayvon was 17 when Zimmerman fatally shot him during a confrontation, he was a minor, or child.

“It was a brilliant strategy to give the jury something to hang their hat on,” offering jurors a compromise verdict if they couldn’t convict Zimmerman of murder, West said.

“It was the ultimate in sandbagging,” he said of the last-minute prosecution strategy in the case.

West argued against it, and “the court ultimately did the right thing” in rejecting it, he said.

“That saved the case,” West said.

“We wanted to avoid a compromise verdict,” O’Mara said.

O’Mara recalled West’s outrage at the prosecution’s move.

“Don came as close as you can to contempt without being thrown in jail,” he said.

Woman's 20 year sentence for warning shot overturned, same state attorney as in George Zimmerman case
on November 10, 2013 at 1:15 AM, updated November 10, 2013 at 1:32 AM

Marissa Alexander, a mother of three children, was convicted in less than 12 minutes by a jury and sentences to 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot near her husband as he was reportedly abusing her, per Yahoo.

She testified that she chose to fire the warning shot instead of shooting him and called it "the lesser of two evils."

Her appeal was successful, and she has been granted a re-trial.

Alexander had tried to invoke the "Stand your Ground" law made infamous by the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case but the judge wasn't swayed.

He said that the retrial was granted because the jury was erroneously informed about self-defense, thinking that the victim has to have sustained physical injuries before defending themselves.

The state attorney in the case, Angela Corey, also oversaw the failed prosecution of George Zimmerman.

Spike Lee Sued Over George Zimmerman Tweet
November 11, 2013

An elderly Florida couple who found themselves caught in the center of the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin case last year has filed a lawsuit against film director Spike Lee for retweeting information that mistook their home for Zimmerman’s.
Lee sent a Twitter message last year to his 240,000 followers with an address that he thought belonged to Zimmerman, who was accused of killing the unarmed teenager Martin.
But the address was actually that of Elaine and David McClain of Sanford, Fla., both in their early 70s, whose home became the focal point of online vitriol aimed at Zimmerman, who also lived in Sanford.

Now the McClains have accused Lee of negligence in a lawsuit filed in Florida and posted by The Smoking Gun.
The original source of the misinformation was a man in California, who tweeted the address to various celebrities, according to the lawsuit.
Lee then retweeted to his followers with the same address, which was repeated hundreds of times with threatening messages.
The McClains told Orlando, Fla., news station WKMG-TV that the wife’s youngest son’s name is George Zimmerman but he had no relation to the Zimmerman involved in the case and had not lived at the home in years. They have not sued anyone else.
The McClains said in their lawsuit that they feared for their lives after their address was broadcast on Lee’s account. They are seeking at least $15,000 in damages.
Lee previously settled with the couple over the tweet. The couples’ attorney, Matt Morgan, told the Los Angeles Times in March 2012 that Lee called the McClains to apologize and compensated them.
But the couple’s lawsuit now alleges that the threats continued throughout Zimmerman’s 2013 trial. Morgan did not return calls for comment.

No charges to be filed in Zimmerman dispute
updated 4:04 PM EST, Thu November 14, 2013

Investigators on Thursday said no charges will result from an alleged domestic dispute on September 9 between George Zimmerman and his estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman.

Read more: George Zimmerman, Good Samaritan

Police in Lake Mary, Florida, released a report saying that there is "insufficient evidence" to prosecute the case because forensic experts could not recover video from an iPad that George Zimmerman allegedly damaged during the altercation. The iPad belonged to Shellie Zimmerman.

Investigators sent the iPad to the U.S. Secret Service for examination.

"Despite having a parts iPad, no further examination is possible at this lab due to the severely damaged components and encryption on the flash memory," reads a report written by Special Agent Jonathan Jacobs with the Secret Service's Criminal Investigative Division.

Another report written by Lake Mary Police Detective Ronald Tomassi says the investigation into the altercation is over.

"I received notification that the State Attorney's office had confirmed there was insufficient evidence to prosecute this case. Items were returned to evidence, and this case is exceptionally cleared with the State Attorney's Office decision. My involvement is concluded in this case," reads Tomassi's report.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office said Zimmerman will be booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility.

No other details have been released.

George Zimmerman has made national headlines several times since his acquittal in July in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Stay with WFTV.com and tune in to Eyewitness News at 4 p.m. as we work to uncover more details.

Over the summer, authorities were called to domestic dispute involving Zimmerman and his wife, Shellie Zimmerman, shortly after she filed for divorce.
