Controversy is sure to follow George Zimmerman, even though he has not been convicted of anything and the evidence suggesting he acted in justifiable self-defense in the shooting and killing Trayvon Martin was overwhelming.
George apparently is hanging out at a gun shop keeping an eye on things, and that’s big news, although it’s not clear whether he is on “patrol” as some of the headlines suggest.
News6 Orlando headlines the story as George Zimmerman ‘patrolling’ Central Florida shop after gun theft:
Although he’s not a hired security officer, George Zimmerman has been “patrolling” outside a Volusia County gun shop after it was recently robbed, according to the store owner.
Pat Johnson told Local 6 that Zimmerman is not an employee of his DeLand store Pompano Pat’s, which sells firearms, ammunition and motorcycles.
Johnson said that Zimmerman, on his own accord, has been spotted outside the store since the robbery earlier this month. The thieves stole rifles worth up to $5,000 and two mini-bikes, according to Johnson.
Johnson added that although he knows Zimmerman, he has not hired him as a security officer.
News13 has a less negative spin on it, George Zimmerman now working security for DeLand motorcycle, gun shop:
George Zimmerman has found work as a security guard, according to a DeLand Police report.
According to the report, a police officer spotted a dark-colored truck around 12:30 a.m. behind Pompano Pat’s Motorcycles, which also sells guns and offers weapons and concealed carry classes.
The officer made contact with Zimmerman, who was sitting inside the vehicle with his dog.
Zimmerman told the officer he had permission from the business’ owner, Pat Johnson, to be there. He said he was keeping an eye on the business after a recent burglary.
Last year, Johnson received death threats after offering Zimmerman a gun of the same make and model used by Zimmerman in his deadly confrontation with Trayvon Martin in Sanford.
