Two More Sentences at this link

I, for one, am not surprised and it's interesting that it did not take long after his acquittal.

11:59 AM PT: Atlantic Reporter Tony Pipitone tweets incident involved estranged wife's family and a threat with a gun.

12:02 PM PT: Update at original link shows the house is owned by the parents of his estranged wife.

12:09 PM PT: Even Fox News is reporting this now claiming he threatened his estranged wife and his father-in-law. Domestic cases like this will almost invariably result in surrender of all arms being required while it's sorted out. Not sure how Florida handles such things, though.

12:31 PM PT: Deja vu. He is not under arrest. Police are on the scene trying to figure out what happened. At last report, there were no dead kids lying in the grass. Link to SFGate story

1:00 PM PT: Shellie’s attorney, Kelly Sims, told ABC News that Zimmerman pulled a knife on her after she found a gun in the house they shared. He then pulled a firearm on her and her father after a verbal altercation went sour.

1:18 PM PT: In the 911 call, Shellie Zimmerman states, “He continuously has his hand on his gun and he keeps saying ‘get closer.” ; “Dad get inside the house George might start shooting at us” and “I’m really really afraid. I don’t know what he’s capable of.”

1:25 PM PT: Deja Vu all over again. No longer detained. Police investigating and unsure if anybody will be arrested.

1:43 PM PT: And once again, this scum walks away with no charges:

Chief Steve Bracknell: "They both have declined to press charges against" #GeorgeZimmerman. "We have no victim, no crime."


2:18 PM PT: And the final update, Georgie claims he was the victim.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
