After Being Acquitted for Trayvon Martin's Murder, George Zimmerman Went to Forney. With a Gun.

You're George Zimmerman. It's been two weeks since you were acquitted of killing an unarmed teenager in one of the most controversial, racially charged trials in a generation. Thousands, if not millions of people want you dead. What's a man to do?

Buying a gun is probably a good idea. Driving at high speeds through Forney is not.

Nevertheless, that's allegedly what Zimmerman was doing on U.S. Highway 80 just after noon on July 28 when he was pulled over by a Forney police officer. According to inforney.com, which broke the news and obtained a copy of the dash-cam video from the squad car, Zimmerman was cooperative, informing the officer that he had a gun in the glove compartment.

The cop asked where he was heading.

Zimmerman: "Nowhere in particular."

Officer: "Nowhere in particular? Why is that?"

Z: "You didn't see my name?"

O: "Wow, what a coincidence!" [He goes on to ask if Zimmerman is clear of warrants]

Z: "Absolutely."

O: "All right, I'm gonna go back and just check you, routinely. The reason you were stopped was for your speed. Why don't you slow down a little bit for me and, as long as you don't have any warrants, I'll cut you loose with a warning. Just take it easy, go ahead and shut your glove compartment and don't play with your firearm, OK?"

Zimmerman agreed and wished him a safe trip.

Fox 4 reached out to Zimmerman's attorneys, who declined to comment. "For his safety, we won't make any comments about Zimmerman's whereabouts, and we will work to protect his privacy," they said.

Update at 4:12 p.m.: CBS 11 has posted the video:

Maybe he can find some other un-armed kid to kill.

I hope George moves to Texas. We need more law abiding guys like him who aren't scared of law breaking punks like Trayvon.

The clean shave, 4th grade haircut and suit that his counsel put him in for court made him look like a puffy little pansy. Very effective.

He looks far different now.

@Leo Kasselman your unfounded personal attack has no effect, but at least you tried. Projecting your insecurities upon others is not a good look. I'll keep you in my prayers that you find the strength one day to rise above your insecurities to eventually become a better, and ultimately more compassionate person.

how can someone from another state drive here with a gun and it not cause the cop to at least request to see his concealed license?  I bet if he were black the cop would have pulled him out of the car and thrown him on the ground...at the very least

Wow, Adam. What an effed up world you would make. So, there's no such thing as a justice system? Did you feel this way about OJ's acquittal? GZ can come live at my house, regardless of skin color. Oh, btw, since you can't tell from my pic --- I'm blonde, green-eyed, and burn easily, so I guess that's what you'd call "fully white"? I think I know who the racist is here. . .

So Zimmerman came rushing to the state known for being a gun nut asylum.  Let's hope he doesn't carry out his personal mission to profile and murder young Black kids in Texas.

No country for gz! This is poetic where ever gz goes he will be hounded, the exclusive white neighborhood won't want him cause he isn't fully white. Homeowners association will run him off cause they don't want the headache. The so called criminal elaimate of people of color will be hunting him, and anytime he can't stay below the radar it will make the news, letting everyone know right where he is... think of oj,

Who else thinks Some Thing Wrong, oh wait, Sum Teng Wong, is a complete idiot? LOL!

The reason this is news is because all people of color know that he is in the dfw area. Just like a pedophiles and rapist, that might not be convicted yet, the greater public has a right to know so they can take actions to protect their families from this murdering douchebag.

Reporting news is fine. Reporting news with a liberal slant is what this crappy 'magazine' does. So, why don't you STFU idiot!

He wasn't convicted of a felony. Therefore, he is legally allowed to continue to carry.

I'd gladly invite him into my neighborhood. He will be head of the neighborhood watch and make sure no thugs like Trayvon try to rob my house.

and seeing that he is under multiple death threats, any person would be stupid not be protecting themselves, and carrying a gun.

I wish they would quit saying unarmed. First of all he was armed with a concrete sidewalk. Second of all nobody could have known if Travon was armed or not until after the fact.

During the traffic stop, the cop has to warn him repeatedly to "calm down" and "take it easy" and then to stop "playing" with his weapon.

I wonder - how would the cop have reacted to a black man who was not calm and "playing" with a loaded weapon during a traffic stop?

Erin Volker

Could you be any more biased? There is NO reason to report this story. The man can have a gun. He can have a gun because he was ACQUITTED! Leave him alone!

"For his safety..." What about the safety of any unarmed kids who decide to run out for a snack while watching tv?

If there is anything newsworthy about this, it's the fact that George is driving around the country and was in Forney, Texas last Sunday. Duh! Must be a slow news day.

Ok quick poll for the Eric Smiths: how many have you personally met? I stopped counting at 7, including one in the same grade in grade school with me (leading to me being called Ric during the Silver Spoon years).

@nammer probably becuase just like a drivers license and insurane card, if you are a CHL holder, and the gun is on you, you just give it to them.  Also, its not illegal to carry a gun in your car, even without a CHL in Texas

So, Myrna has now rejected the jury system. Classy.

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz  

Let's be clear, Myrna: His goal is not to murder young black kids, but to assuage to his poor self-image by play-acting at being a macho asshole and then shooting his way out of the situations he gets himself into. (Granted, the difference between this and being an ACTUAL "macho asshole" is largely academic.)

@Myrna.Minkoff-Katz hey dumb bitch, Im pretty sure his mission isnt to profile a nd murder black people, just people who kick his ass

As long as no-one attemots to kill him, there shouldn't be a problem.

@Montemalone No panther hunting season in FL, he figured being TX might just be open season on "Panthers" at some point...

@Montemalone 

Rick Perry and the Libertarian Republicans have made it pretty clear that they WANT people like him in Texas.
