George Zimmerman's girlfriend wants charges dropped, motion says
By Rene Stutzman and Jeff Weiner, Orlando Sentinel
5:19 p.m. EST, December 9, 2013

George Zimmerman's girlfriend — who authorities said accused him of pointing a shotgun at her — no longer wants him to be prosecuted, and wants to resume their relationship, according a new motion.

A sworn statement attributed to the girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, was attached to a motion by Zimmerman's lawyer seeking to modify the conditions of Zimmerman's bond in his domestic violence case.

In the statement, Scheibe says she felt "intimidated" when police questioned her about the Nov. 18 incident that led to Zimmerman's arrest. She adds that she "may have misspoken."

"I want to be with George," Scheibe says in the statement, adding later: "I do not want George Zimmerman charged. I make this decision freely, knowingly and voluntarily," and without coercion, she says.

She says that she and Zimmerman had an "argument," but Zimmerman "never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner."

The Scheibe statement also says that she was more intimidated by the law enforcement officers who investigated the case than Zimmerman.

"I was not allowed to call an attorney nor was I allowed to eat or drink anything for a very long time," she says, adding that police "misinterpreted" her Zimmerman's arrest report.

"Further, I request that the Seminole County State Attorney's Office not be allowed to harass me because I do not with to take part in any prosecution of this case on behalf of the State," the statement concludes.

Chris White, lead prosecutor in Seminole County, said he learned of Scheibe's change of heart today.

He said his office would evaluate her affidavit and decide later this week whether to push forward with the case or abandon it.

The motion by Zimmerman's attorney Jayne Weintraub asks for Zimmerman's judge to allow contact with Scheibe "anywhere, including her residence."

I speculate that he wants to go home for Christmas, and he can't, because of the doo-dad, on his ankle.

If his fam live in another State (speculation) he may not to go home for the Holidays.

Is his daddy, trying to per$uade her, to order to change her mind?  IMO

Or is Mr. T, fed up with (babysitting) his buddy? 


This is all speculation and opinions

George Zimmerman will not be charged in domestic dispute, prosecutor says
By Jeff Weiner, Orlando Sentinel
6:03 p.m. EST, December 11, 2013

George Zimmerman's latest brush with the criminal justice system ended Wednesday, when State Attorney Phil Archer announced that Zimmerman will not face charges in a domestic incident last month.
 
In a statement Wednesday, Archer said the Seminole County Sheriff's Office had probable cause to arrest Zimmerman after Scheibe called 911 and reported Zimmerman was armed and behaving threateningly.

"However, upon reviewing the recent affidavit... and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution," said Archer, the top prosecutor for Seminole and Brevard counties.
 
After prosecutors declined to file charges, Zimmerman was released from his bond conditions. That means he can once again possess guns and he'll no longer have to stay away from Scheibe or wear a GPS device.

Zimmerman's south Florida attorney, Jayne Weintraub, credited Archer and Assistant State Attorney Christopher White, who she said did the right thing in light of the Scheibe affidavit.

"They discussed with me their concerns, I discussed with them our view... that they would not be able to have a sustainable case," she said.

O'Mara faces Florida Bar complaint about Zimmerman case
6:36 p.m. EST, December 16, 2013

Orlando attorney Mark O'Mara, who took on George Zimmerman as a client in one of the nation's most high-profile murder trials and won his acquittal, is now the subject of an ethics complaint for how he handled the case.

Few details are available, including who filed the complaint and what allegations O'Mara is facing, but The Florida Bar on Monday confirmed that its staff is investigating a complaint and has made no determination as to whether O'Mara should face possible discipline.

O'Mara would not comment.
 
During the lead-up to the trial, O'Mara and West complained about the conduct of prosecutors, especially Bernie de la Rionda, accusing him of hiding evidence. De la Rionda lodged a similar counterclaim with the trial judge, Debra S. Nelson in Sanford, but she has taken no final action on either set of allegations.

The Florida Bar said Monday that neither de la Rionda nor co-counsel John Guy currently face ethics complaints related to the Zimmerman case.

Zimmerman's former attorney unfazed by bar inquiry
Tuesday, December 17, 2013

ORLANDO, Fla. — The attorney who helped get George Zimmerman acquitted of murder charges said Tuesday that he expects an ethics inquiry opened by the Florida Bar will find nothing wrong in how he handled a defense fund and social media during the case.

Mark O'Mara said on his website that the inquiry was opened before the trial when his office contacted the bar for advice on how it should go about managing the fund and website it set up to assist it in Zimmerman's second-degree murder case in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

The issue was deferred until after the trial and O'Mara said he is "certain that matter will be closed shortly, and that the conclusion will suggest that we handled these new and novel approaches in an appropriate and ethical way."

Florida bar spokeswoman Francine Walker said in an email that the complaint was at the "staff investigation level" and that she couldn't provide further information due to confidentiality rules.

O'Mara said everything his office did regarding the defense fund and on social media was transparent from the start.

"The Florida Bar opened an inquiry, which included very specific questions regarding our policies for each and how we were conducting ourselves," O'Mara said in the statement. "We responded promptly and to The Florida Bar's satisfaction, and the entire matter was deferred until after the trial. Although no further action has been taken since the verdict, the file has remained open."

GOOD GRIEF ... Y'ALL SEEN THIS?

“Sacrilege” and an “Abomination” … Claremont United Methodist Church in California Replaces Baby Jesus in Nativity Scene with Bloody, Hooded Trayvon Martin (VIDEO)

http://scaredmonkeys.com/2013/12/30/sacrilege-and-an-abomination-claremont-united-methodist-church-in-california-replaces-baby-jesus-in-nativity-scene-with-bloody-hooded-trayvon-martin-video/

Quote
The Claremont United Methodist Church, about 30 miles east of Los Angeles, California, and John Zachary, the individual behind the “artistic interpretation,”  has managed to infuriate many with their depiction of the Nativity scene this Christmas season by replacing the baby Jesus with Trayvon Martin. Yup … because some how I get the two of them confused all off the time. I just have two words, “Sacrilege” and an “Abomination”!!! All in the name of “artistic interpretation” these fools have managed to desecrate the Birth of Christ by replacing the innocence of the Baby Jesus, the son of God, Our Savior with the hoody-wearing, Trayvon Martin, slumped over, shot in the chest with blood pouring out on to the ground. UNREAL. Wow, because some how Trayvon Martin is supposed to symbolize the innocence of a child, really? Who knew the drug using, pot smoking, middle finger displaying, gun carrying, school skipping, gangsta fightin’ thug was so innocent.

One does not even know where to begin here. In the name of “social justice” they would do such sacrilege. But such things are perfectly okay, because while defaming the birth of Christ, there is a liberal message. You can poke others in the eye, but then cry foul when there is an overwhelming negative response. In the past,  Zachary has depicted Mary and Joseph as a modern-day homeless couple; as Mexicans stopped by the U.S.-Mexico border fence; as Iraq War refugees; and in 2010, just Mary by herself, as a black woman in prison with her baby. What, you mean that they have not portrayed Mary and Joseph as Michelle and Barack Obama? Or is that next year?


The difference between this and the Duck Dynasty controversy is that one was actually referencing scripture, this is just an interpretation meant to provoke people. Not thought provoking ... just plain provoke.

George Zimmerman's new painting: State Attorney Angela Corey
6:21 p.m. EST, January 22, 2014

The special prosecutor who charged George Zimmerman with second-degree murder in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is the subject of his latest painting, according to a photo posted on Twitter by Zimmerman's brother.

Robert Zimmerman Jr. said details on the sale of Zimmerman's painting of State Attorney Angela Corey would be made available on Thursday. George Zimmerman sold a previous painting on eBay, with a winning bid of $100,099.99.

The new painting is an image of Corey gesturing with her finger and thumb together, under the words "I have this much respect for the American judicial system." The painting is titled "Angie," Robert Zimmerman Jr. tweeted Wednesday.
