It’s a natural question once one learns that Zimmerman’s dad is a former judge.
George Zimmerman, Son of a Retired Judge, Has 3 Closed Arrests. Did George Zimmerman have help from his father, a retired judge, in clearing his name in three separate arrests?
Robert Zimmerman, a former Orange County magistrate judge, recently wrote a letter to The Orlando Sentinel defending his son, who’s been dragged through the mud for shooting the unarmed 17-year-old last month. In the letter, the senior Zimmerman asks people not to jump to conclusions and insists that his son didn’t follow the young boy home as he walked through their gated community. “He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever. The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth. At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details of the event became public, and I hope that will be soon, everyone should be outraged by the treatment of George Zimmerman in the media,” wrote Robert Zimmerman.
But dad may not be all that unbiased. Seems George has quite the criminal past and dad may have pulled some strings to keep him out of prison.
Now more info is being dug up on his “victimized” son through public records and revealing his checkered past. According to a records search on George, he was previously arrested for domestic violence, resisting an officer without violence and most shockingly, resisting an officer with violence — a felony charge that surely could have landed him in prison. All three of those arrests, however, were mysteriously closed with no semblance of charges for the Florida resident.
So if his misdeeds in the past were whitewashed, the natural and logical supposition now is that his father’s connections may do their best to cover for him this time. Was he not arrested when he shot Trayvon Martin because he was ‘defending himself’ or did the cops know the judge and do him a favor?
