(Newser) – George Zimmerman had another brush with the law over the weekend, this time for a minor offense. An officer in Forney, Texas, pulled him over for speeding but ultimately let him go with a warning, reports TMZ. The most interesting tidbit is that during the stop, Zimmerman revealed that he had a gun in his glove compartment. Asked where he was going, Zimmerman replied, "Nowhere in particular."

When the officer questioned the reply, Zimmerman said, "You didn't see my name?" And the officer said, "Wow, what a coincidence," reports inForney.com. After Zimmerman's warrant check came back clean, he was let go with this warning: "Just take it easy, go ahead and shut your glove compartment, and don't play with your firearm, OK?" Words to live by. (Maybe he bought the gun with this money?)

It is truly frightening to read the comments of so many Americans re this individual. God is mysteriously kind in allowing our country even to continue existing with such people. On the other note: I am disappointed Zimmerman did not get in trouble after all. I had hoped this story was different. I have been asking God that Zimmerman get in trouble every day. But I try to have the faith that God is showing us things about ourselves. Mostly not good things.

Cop had a boner for the killer. NOBODY in TX is allowed to answer "nowhere" when a cop asks where they're headed; that's a guarantee of a search and a night in jail. And nobody goes to Forney except to score meth. This pig has the luck of the devil himself. KKK still runs this nation.

BTW ! The FEDS have NO RIGHT to order a STATE to withold the return of his weapon! This was and IS a STATE'S Case. They Ordered it returned (the JUDGE's Direct Order in the Court) ! Therefore, it MUST be RETURNED! Now who is breaking the law? I would SUE the FEDS~ for monetary damages. Plus the State for malicious process! They (the State of FL) shopped for a stupid prosecutor to sign a complaint and did so in Jacksonville FL; Hundreds of miles from Sanford, FL. Many disbarrments should follow as they knew or should have, that the entire case was one of appeasement and Not of Law. Winston Churchillm said, "Appeasement is Surrender on the Installment Plan," ISLAMISTS hated Churchill and fought alongiside of the NAZIES ! The first thing Obama did was return the Gifted Churchill Bust to England (an Insult). ~Rick Magee, FL "MOLON LABE"
