The last accusation against George Zimmerman by his girlfriend who said he was trying to attack her just seemed too convenient.
Ever since his acquittal, the liberals have been looking for something to nail him with. Ooooh, he was speeding. Oooh his wife divorced him. Oooh he stubbed his toe. They must find something to hang on him or the libs’ guilty verdict will not hang on.
Legalinsurrection blog felt that way, too. Blogger Professor William Jacobson found this out:
I told you there were problems with the most recent arrest of George Zimmerman allegedly for pointing a shotgun at his girlfriend, when it came out that the girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, was shopping for a paid interview prior to the incident.
Now, according to court filings, Sheibe wants to drop the charges. Via Orlando Sentinel:
George Zimmerman’s girlfriend — who authorities said accused him of pointing a shotgun at her — no longer wants him to be prosecuted, and wants to resume their relationship, according a new motion.
A sworn statement made by the girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, was attached to a motion by Zimmerman’s lawyer seeking to modify the conditions of Zimmerman’s bond in his domestic violence case.
In the statement, Scheibe says she felt “intimidated” when police questioned her about the Nov. 18 incident that led to Zimmerman’s arrest. She adds that she “may have misspoken.”
“I want to be with George,” Scheibe says in the statement, adding later: “I do not want George Zimmerman charged. I make this decision freely, knowingly and voluntarily,” and without coercion, she says.
She says that she and Zimmerman had an “argument,” but Zimmerman “never pointed a gun at or torward my face in a threatening manner.”
If you read past the sensational headlines on the latest incident, Zimmerman’s explanations seemed believable. He said he was packing up his things to leave her when she started throwing things. He said he never pointed the gun at her, but was putting it away to leave.
After all he went through, it seems hard to believe he would have been so stupid as to get in an assault type confrontation with her.
Today’s news will not be seen by most of the people who believe Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin on purpose. So, score another hit for the drive by media.
