Confirmed: George Zimmerman Detained By Police After Wife Said He Threatened Her Family With a Gun, Assaulted Her Father | TheBlaze.com.

Really, George? I know what a bunch of you are thinking. ¬†Innocent until proven guilty! And the man was acquitted but, damn. You’d think you’d go out of your way to keep your nose clean and avoid any and all trouble or controversy after the experience Zimmerman had over the last 18 months.

An I again recognize it may not be a popular position but, I for one have never felt comfortable with the “hero” status this milk toast butterball has enjoyed in many conservative social circles. There are those of us who do not hold him blameless in the shooting that turned into a national circus but, in the interest of justice, we couldn’t see hanging a man when the evidence did not support a murder conviction or even voluntary manslaughter.

None of that meant he wasn’t a bonehead who willingly walked into a situation that got out of hand faster than he thought possible. None of that means he didn’t make decisions that put him in a position where he had to defend himself. May be it’s not fair or overly harsh but, this man’s decision making skills really do seem to be less than optimal.

  1. I agree with the notion that Zimmerman should go out of his way to keep his nose clean. The press is involved so the real story is unknown…they will always want to impune him. Relative to the murder trial and his culpability/negilgence/fault, he ended up in a position where he was justified in using leathal force, period. Don’t malign his judgement in the various steps that ultimately became a shooting. He was protecting his neighborhood in a very reasonable way. Hero? At least a “trail blazer!”
