Florida Arrests All… Except for Murder

George ZimmermanGeorge Zimmerman was arrested on some domestic assault charge. Whatever. I’ve always felt he was kind of an idiot. But I was very interested in what the Lake Mary police spokesman Zach Hudson said about Zimmerman’s detention. “Anytime we have anybody suspected of doing anything, we place them in investigative detention until a complete investigation has been done.” What a difference 5 miles makes!

You see, when Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, he was in Sanford, Florida. That’s 5 whole miles away. Apparently, in Sanford, anytime they have anybody suspected of doing anything other than murder, they place them in investigative detention. What’s more, in Sanford, they do criminal background checks on the victims, not the perpetrators. But mostly, they just assume that if you killed someone, he must have had it coming.

I’m glad to see that in Lake Mary they take policing more seriously. Or do they? After all, George Zimmerman didn’t kill anyone this time. Maybe if he had stood his ground against his wife and killed her, he wouldn’t be in jail. “She was banging my head against the colander and I felt threatened!” We won’t know until George Zimmerman kills again.

  1. As soon as I heard the Zimmerman verdict, which although it really angered me, did not surprise me at all, I wondered if a new defense, the "Zimmerman Defense," would pop up in Florida, or elsewhere for that matter. You know it’s only a matter of time before someone kills another person and claims that they felt threatened, whatever the circumstances. It doesn’t matter if you stalk someone, initiate a confrontation, and attack them, if you kill that person all you need to do is claim that you were standing your ground. After all, there is now a precedent for just that. For all I know, there might already be people attempting to use that defense.

    I say it all the time, but I’ll say it again: we live in one backwards society. We run background checks on the victim, put the victim’s character on trial, and let the murderer go. This is just another example, and I could fill books with more examples of how backwards this world is.

  2. @Patrick – The article isn’t about Zimmerman, it is about how the police arrested him for a domestic dispute but not murder (until compelled to by protesters). It’s funny how conservatives have made this guy into a hero. Is that really the best the conservative movement can do? I guess so.

  3. @Mack – Yes. Stand your ground is a terrible law. But a lot of the conservative movement has something akin to a disease. I’ve especially seen it with the Joe Horn shooting. The people just divide the world into good and bad and want to go around killing everyone they define as bad. The fact that it is largely driven by racism and other low brain thinking makes it especially pernicious.
