Someone should explain to George that nothing compares to the fury of a woman scorned. Not hell, not the parents of Trayvon Martin, not the NAACP; nothing.
"Police in Lake Mary, Fla., say they are holding George Zimmerman in "investigative detention" after a 911 call from his estranged wife who reported that he punched her father in the nose and threatened them both with a gun.
Police said Zimmerman is cooperating but has not talked with investigators.
In an audio recording of Shellie Zimmerman's 911 call to police, she reported that Zimmerman had smashed an iPad she was holding and cut it with a pocket knife, struck her father in the nose and threatened both while putting a hand on a gun.
"I'm really scared,'' Shellie Zimmerman can be heard repeating during the call.
Deputy police chief Colin Morgan says Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin in a case that put a spotlight on Florida's self-defense gun laws, is being held in handcuffs.
Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce last week." [Source]
Careful George, killing a little Negro boy isn't the same as hurting a white woman. Those right wingnuts and NRA supporters who had your back for killing that little "thug" Negro will run away from you quicker than Usain Bolt from the starting blocks.
I am convinced now more than ever that karma (not the good kind) will pay George a visit really soon. It's just a matter of time. And, when it does, I hope that the parents of Trayvon Martin will be around to see it.
"I'm really scared.'' "Shellie, at least you are alive.
Finally, speaking of the NRA, I am sure that organization is very much involved in the debate now taking place out in Iowa.
In case you folks didn't hear, in the state of Iowa it is now being debated whether to issue a gun permit to a blind person.
Actually, in Iowa, a blind person can get a gun permit.
"Iowa law enforcement officials are debating the wisdom of granting gun permits to blind people.
The Des Moines Register reports ( http://dmreg.co/15O9I83 ) that Iowa law doesn't allow sheriffs to deny a permit to carry a gun in public based on physical ability.
Some sheriffs have been granting gun permits to people with visual impairments while others have been denying them. Blind people and other Iowans can obtain the permits for carrying a weapon in public because of changes to state law that took effect in 2011.
Jane Hudson with Disability Rights Iowa said keeping legally blind people from obtaining weapon permits would violate the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Some other states, including Nebraska, require anyone applying for a gun permit to provide proof of their visual ability by supplying a driver's license or doctor's statement.
Hudson said she thinks someone could successfully challenge Nebraska's vision restriction because federal law requires states to analyze a situation individually before denying a service.
"The fact that you can't drive a car doesn't mean you can't go to a shooting range and see a target," Hudson said.
Polk County officials said they have issued weapons permits to people who can't drive legally because of vision problems at least three times. Sheriffs in Jasper, Kossuth and Delaware counties say they've also granted permits to Iowans with severe visual impairments.
"It seems a little strange, but the way the law reads, we can't deny them (a permit) just based on that one thing," said Sgt. Jana Abens, a spokeswoman for the Polk County sheriff's office, referring to a visual disability.
It's not clear how many people with visual impairments have permits to carry weapons in Iowa because no one collects that information." '[Source]
Sergeant, if that "one thing" happens to be the fact that they can't see, I think it would be a good idea to deny them a permit. Just a thought.
I bet even Stevie Wonder would agree.
