GZ Big Boy 2

As we all know, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN is a nefarious, calculating individual.   Raised by his father Robert Zimmerman Sr., a retired Virginia Supreme Court Magistrate judge and his mother, a court clerk, George would naturally glean some legal knowledge, however this knowledge would be just enough to hang himself which it actually did on the night of February 26, 2012 when he stalked, harassed and shot to death a young man named Trayvon Martin. Martin was only 21 days into his 17th year of life.

After months of avoiding arrest, months of protesting and national discontent, State Attorney Angela Corey finally announced George Zimmerman was under arrest.  At 9:12 EDT on April 11, 2012 GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was in the custody of John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Florida.

Since then there’s been lots of hoopla and national debate as to how and why GEORGE ZIMMERMAN would get out of his vehicle, stalk and pursue a young man walking home from a local 7-11 convenience store wearing a phone ear piece and carrying only a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona Tea.

In my research of Mr. Zimmerman, I found that he’s an arrogant wanna-be-cop whose violence and buffoonery has caused much annoyance to many people.

“Usually he was just a cool guy. He liked to drink and hang with the women like the rest of us,” he said. “But it was like Jekyll and Hyde. When the dude snapped, he snapped.” “He had a temper and he became a liability,” the man said. “One time this woman was acting a little out of control. She was drunk. George lost his cool and totally overreacted,” he said. “It was weird, because he was such a cool guy, but he got all nuts. He picked her up and threw her. It was pure rage. She twisted her ankle. Everyone was flipping out.”

These are the words from an ex-coworker who worked with George Zimmerman as a bouncer for illegal parties from 2001 to 2005.  After this incident Zimmerman was fired for being overly aggressive.

Violent George

2005 was the same year Zimmerman was arrested for fighting with a cop trying to arrest his friend for underage drinking and the same year he and his ex-fiancée took out protective orders against each other.

Remarkably George Zimmerman has three closed arrests 7/18/05 for resisting arrest with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer div 10……..8/9/05 for domestic violence div 44….. And again on 8/10/05 domestic violence div 46.

Not ONE news outlet had the gumption to publish this information.  However, the media happily reported the Sanford Police leak — the character defaming information about Mr. Martin, yet George Zimmerman’s background was kept secret. Disturbing, to say the least.

It makes one wonder if the Zimmerman’s had connections with Sanford Police Department or if the fact that George Zimmerman’s father being a retired Supreme Court Magistrate and his mother Gladys Zimmerman, a retired court clerk played a part in swaying the media.

Or perhaps local media was just doing their part to help save face for the Sanford Police Dept? After all they dropped the ball by not arresting George Zimmerman in the first place. 

We may never know the truth but the facts remain the same.

Unfortunately for Sanford PD and George Zimmerman, the Martin family would be heard

Trayvon Martin wasn’t the thug Sanford PD had hoped and in no sense of the word are Trayvon’s parents Slackers or uncaring, unconcerned parents.   His father Tracy Martin drove trucks for a living and in his spare time coached his son’s football team.   He’s also a high ranking official of the Free Masons.   His mother Sybrina Fulton is a 23-year veteran of the Miami-Dade County housing authority.

Since watching the February 5, 2013 hearing I find myself feeling baffled and confused. What is George Zimmerman’s defense team up to?  “No good” perhaps? During the hearing O’Mara publicly announced “The GEORGE ZIMMERMAN Fund” had dwindled to $5,000 and in the same sentence said there were not enough funds available for him to build a defense for his client.

GZ atty Donald West

GZ atty O'Mara shrugs

Are Attorney Mark O’Mara and Co-counsel Donald West looking for a way out?

Will George Zimmerman represent himself?

Mark O’Mara has handled this case since April 2012.  He has since gone through at least $200,000 of the George Zimmerman Defense Fund.  I’m figuring $200,000 because George and wife Shellie wheeled and dealed away over $130,000 on personal bills and family members before O’Mara officially had control over the fund.   

In the meantime, Mark O’Mara, George and Shellie Zimmerman were hit with a lawsuit filed by Associated Investigative Services for not paying for provided security services. O’Mara asked AIS for more time to pay but apparently AIS was not as sympathetic of his client as he hoped.  The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, among other claims, and requests a monetary judgment of $27,027.08.  According to the O’Mara, AIS was once charging Zimmerman $7,000 a week for security.  O’Mara says the Zimmerman’s are now paying $700 a week.

Big Boy George

It’s hard not to notice George Zimmerman’s obesity.  He’s said to be close to 300lbs which is nearly 100lbs more than he weighed the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin. I highly suspect his weight gain is due to lack of  medication, particularly Adderall.  During one of GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’s many police interviews he admitted to Investigator Chris Serino that he was prescribed Adderall for ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder  which raises the question,

“Why would his doctor stop prescribing this particular medication?”

Did he stop having ADHD?

In my opinion, during the time frame of the shooting George Zimmerman was abusing Adderall to control his weight which is not unusual.  Adderall is an amphetamine and is also prescribed by doctors to control over eating and weight gain.  Amphetamines are also known to cause aggression.

Could this be George Zimmerman’s defense?

Adderall caused his aggression towards a young boy walking in the rain?

I wonder.

~~~

According to the Huffington Post, Judge Debra Nelson has reserved the final two weeks of April for the immunity hearing.  She had also requested an initial jury pool of 500 for June’s second-degree murder trial.

Stayed tuned.  I’m sure there’s more to come in “The George Zimmerman Saga”.  If I’m reading my crystal ball correctly, I see George Zimmerman behind bars for many years beginning sometime in late June or early July 2013!

Justice Served!

Zimmerman’s Potential Strategy Revealed

Fat GZ in courtOn January 18, 2013, according to reporter Tony Pipitone, of ClickOrlando.com, George Zimmerman’s lead attorney Mark O’Mara has potentially revealed his hand. George Zimmerman is charged in the second-degree murder of 17yo Trayvon Martin.  Zimmerman claims he shot Trayvon Martin in self defense after he stalked and followed the boy as he was walking home from a local convenience store.

At the time of the incident, George Zimmerman was under the influence of Adderall, a drug prescribed to him for ADHD, a disorder usually found in children but sometimes in adults.  An adult may experience restlessness instead of hyperactivity. In addition, adults with ADHD consistently have problems with interpersonal relationships and employment.  According to reports, this describes George Zimmerman to a tee.

O’Mara’s Big Bag of Tricks

In O’Mara’s big bag of tricks, he plans to use surveillance videos, evidence receipts, warrants and video of Zimmerman surrendering to authorities. These were some of the items listed in a notice to prosecutors filed by O’Mara.


Here are additional items listed in the notice:

• Surveillance video from a Sam’s Club, Kohl’s and apartment complex — all nearby the *Retreat at Twin Lakes complex where Zimmerman lived and Martin was killed
• A Crimeline report regarding an unidentified 8-year-old potential witness

• A letter from former state attorney Norm Wolfinger requesting the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to assist in the case (before he recused himself and a special prosecutor was appointed)

• The entire Sanford Police case file Wolfinger’s office turned over to FDLE
• FDLE warrants, subpoenas and affidavits seeking Martin’s cell phone and its records
• Various evidence and property receipts.

In another motion filed by O’Mara…

Snipped:

The defense is also seeking records from ABC News regarding an interview the Martin family attorney did with a key witness in the case last March. At least one ABC News employee witnessed the telephone call with Witness 8, a young woman Martin was talking to on the phone as he was being followed by Zimmerman on the day Zimmerman shot Martin to death.

Once again, DeeDee, listed as Witness 8 comes into focus. DeeDee is Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend, who happened to be on the phone with Trayvon off and on during the time George Zimmerman was following him.

DeeDee will testify that she heard Trayvon Martin ask Zimmerman, “what are you following me for” seconds before the phone went dead and for that the defense would like nothing more than to eliminate her from the list of witnesses.

For obvious reasons…

O’Mara motioned for a subpoena of ABC News, O’Mara claims he has received recordings revealing less than half of what was said in a 26-minute telephone call. “There are several ‘starts’ and ‘stops’ and other obvious edit indicators” on the recordings turned over by Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump, the motion states.

~~~

In other news its been reported that the the defense team has recently received Trayvon Martin’s school records which GZLegal.com has not yet released to the public. However, O’Mara announced he may release portions of the report at a later date and at his discretion. I’ll assume if he doesn’t release anything soon, it’s because Trayvon Martin’s school records are clean.

~~~

The next hearing is scheduled for February 5th which also marks the 18th birthday of Trayvon Martin. Trayvon Martin was stalked and gunned down by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman on February 26, 2012.

As most are sitting anxiously in wait for Trayvon Martin’s final toxicology report, I’ve had time to do a bit of research into the medications that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN admitted to having been prescribed from various documents released.

GEORGE ZIMMERMAN admitted to having been diagnosed as a child with ADHD when interviewed by homicide detective Chris Serino. He admitted taking Adderall for this condition. Adderal is also listed in his recently released medical report dated February 27, 2012.

*See Released Medical Report dated February 27, 2012 – for complete report in Sources.
Although the copy is of poor quality, it shows Zimmerman on 2/13/2012 was given a written prescription for 60 Adderall – 20 mg tablets, to be taken by mouth, 1 tablet twice a day.

*On page 181, in the Discovery documents, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN reported to EMT /Paramedic Michael Brandy that he’s prescribed Librax and Tamazepam (sp)

What is Librax?
(chlordiazepoxide HCI clidinium bromide) Capsules
Librax is prescribed to control emotional and somatic factors in gastrointestinal disorders.

Chlordiazepoxide hydrochloride is a versatile, therapeutic agent of proven value for the relief of anxiety and tension. It is indicated when anxiety, tension or apprehension are significant components of the clinical profile. It is among the safer of the effective psychopharmacologic compounds.

What is Temazepam?
Restoril™ (temazepam) is indicated for the short-term treatment of insomnia (generally 7 to 10 days).
For patients with short-term insomnia, instructions in the prescription should indicate that Restoril™ (temazepam) should be used for short periods of time (7 to 10 days).
The clinical trials performed in support of efficacy were 2 weeks in duration with the final formal assessment of sleep latency performed at the end of treatment.

What are the precautions when taking temazepam (Restoril)?
Before taking temazepam, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other benzodiazepines (e.g., lorazepam, diazepam); or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.

Note* Librax and Restoril are both benzodiazepine family. According to GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’s medical report, he takes Librax 3 times a day and Restoril once at bedtime. Lodine 400 mg, is a non-steroidal Nsaid and doesn’t apply to my article because it was newly prescribe the day of his doctor visit February 27.

                              What is Adderall?

Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine) is a central nervous system stimulant. It affects chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control.
Adderall is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Adderall may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

According to Wikipedia, Adderall is a Schedule II drug
Snipped:

Like other stimulant drugs, such as methamphetamine and cocaine, Adderall directly affects the mesolimbic reward pathway in the brain. Amphetamine salts preparations are considered to have high abuse potential, and it is classified as Schedule II by the US DEA. With the Safe Streets and Communities Act in Canada, Adderall has been reclassified from Schedule III to Schedule I

US DEA Schedule II Controlled Substances

Substances in this schedule have a high potential for abuse which may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.
Examples of single entity schedule II narcotics include morphine and opium. Other schedule II narcotic substances and their common name brand products include: hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), methadone (Dolophine®), meperidine (Demerol®), oxycodone (OxyContin®), and fentanyl (Sublimaze® or Duragesic®).
Examples of schedule II stimulants include: amphetamine (Dexedrine®, Adderall®), methamphetamine (Desoxyn®), and methylphenidate (Ritalin®). Other schedule II substances include: cocaine, amobarbital, glutethimide, and pentobarbital.

Note*
Considering the fact that Adderall is indicated for the treatment of ADHD and narcolepsy which seems to be the case for George Zimmerman, I don’t believe he’s being improperly prescribed these three medications but there’s always a chance for abuse which remains to be seen.

After having listened to his call to non-emergency 911 several times, I can hear a definite slur in his speech pattern as he speaks to the dispatcher as compared to the sound of his voice in other recordings. There’s also a muffled sound which could indicate he was impaired in some way.

From the list of medications, any two of these could account for his droll, almost zombie-like reaction to what was taking place at the time of the 911 call. As an example, during the time when it’s believed the suspicious person is within one car length from his person and circling his vehicle, it seems he isn’t able to comprehend imminent danger. Surprisingly he doesn’t mention this to the dispatcher either which is why I’m questioning his mental state. Was he impaired?

Unfortunately for him and for the jurors, they will never know because GEORGE ZIMMERMAN refused to be taken to the hospital on the night of the shooting, even though it was reported he was bleeding profusely from several abrasions and visibly, a 1-1.5 inch cut on the back of his head from allegedly being pounded on the pavement by Trayvon Martin.
Had GEORGE ZIMMERMAN agreed to go to the hospital for his injuries, its possible this could have strengthened and supported his case but at the same time, there’s a strong possibility an astute ER nurse would have suggested a blood test considering this could surely become a life or death criminal matter.
A toxicology report would indicate levels of his prescribed medications and alcohol level if he had done any social drinking that day.
Or perhaps GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’s knowledge of criminal law persuaded him to refuse medical treatment. That’s also a possibility.

As I’m trying so desperately to understand GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’s actions and lack of common sense on the night of February 26, 2012, I began to wonder how did a simple phone call to report a suspicious person to non-emergency 911go from normal behavior to impulsive and irrational actions.

For an educated person, 28 years of age, to jump out of his vehicle on an impulse in order to follow a person whom he had just described to the 911 dispatcher as possibly being high on drugs and possibly carrying a weapon in his waistband, goes beyond my realm of reason. I thought it might be helpful to learn a bit more about his mental disorder, ADHD.

ADHD
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

What is ADHD?

In short, as defined by WebMD.com, Children with ADHD, which is when GEORGE ZIMMERMAN was diagnosed, generally have problems paying attention or concentrating. They can’t seem to follow directions and are easily bored or frustrated with tasks. They also tend to move constantly and are impulsive, not stopping to think before they act. These behaviors are generally common in children. But they occur more often than usual and are more severe in a child with ADHD.
The behaviors that are common with ADHD interfere with a child’s ability to function at school and at home.
Adults with ADHD may have difficulty with time management, organizational skills, goal setting, and employment. They may also have problems with relationships, self-esteem, and addictions.

Applying just these 2 paragraphs defines the person I perceive as GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, the shooter of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old teen who happened to visit his father and his fiancé’ at the Retreat at Twin Lakes condominiums. Trayvon was stranger to this area, during a time when George Zimmerman was crowned Neighborhood Watch Captain. Being hero of the townhomes George had a lot on his plate which may have been overwhelming for a person with ADHD. Add a stimulant such as Adderall to the chaos and confusion of that night to George’s false sense of confidence, it all superseded good common sense. Since defense attorney Mark O’Mara seems to be on a fishing expedition perhaps he’ll consider using ADHD and the medication factor as a defense?

just my opinion

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!
