Tag Archive: Robert Zimmerman Sr.


On Friday, July 5th, after 9 days of testimony, the State of Florida rest it’s case against George Zimmerman, accused of 2nd degree murder in the senseless shooting of 17-year old Trayvon Benjamin Martin.  As expected in most murder trials, Mark O’Mara and co-counsel Don West asked Judge Debra Nelson for an acquittal which she denied. With that the defense began.  Attorney Mark O’Mara calls his first witness, George Zimmerman’s mother. Gladys Zimmerman who swore under oath that the voice she heard on the 911 call was the voice of her son.

When O’Mara asked, “Why do you think it’s George?” Gladys simply replied, ” Because he’s MY son”  Bingo!  Although she hasn’t heard him like that before, she’s certain it was her son George.  Very good Gladys. Now you can go for ice cream with Donny and Molly.

Just as quickly as George’s mother’s testimony came to a close, up to the stand was Jorge Mesa, George Zimmerman’s uncle.

Jorge Mesa, who happens to have ties with Orange County, Florida has been a courthouse deputy since 2007.  I should add, George’s father, Robert Zimmerman Sr. is a retired Supreme Court Magistrate judge from Virginia. And I wonder why George Zimmerman’s case wasn’t brought to a Grand Jury.

Jorge Mesa testified that he hadn’t heard the 911 call with screams for help in the background until he heard it over television while his wife was watching the news.  He admitted that he knew his nephew was involved in a shooting but was trying not to get involved.  Ashamed, perhaps?  I can’t help but wonder if Uncle Jorge is the father of the niece George Zimmerman is accused of molesting years ago. The girl was at one point on the State witness list but for reasons unknown, Bernie de la Rionda chose not to call her to the stand.

Mr. Mesa went on to say that he knew the screams he heard belonged to George because he heard him sound like that when he was laughing.  Does laughing ever sound like screaming?  Or is this what George sounded like when he was kicking his ass for touching his daughter?   I really don’t know who the poor child belonged to. One can only speculate…the child was George’s cousin.

Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda’s cross examination was short and methodical.  He basically emphasized that he was in fact “George’s uncle” and with that bit of “consider the source”, Jorge Mesa was dismissed.

Considering the defense’s opening witnesses,  I can only presume that their case hinges heavily on the 911 screams.  As I recall, in the same 911 call in which the screams can be heard, the female caller did say, “They” are screaming for help” meaning more than one person.  I’m hoping that the jury will listen very closely to the tapes.  If they do, in the midst of the screams, they will hear, “I’m beggin you!”.  George Zimmerman certainly didn’t scream that.  He had the gun.

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.

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!
