Zimmerman Can't Stay Out of Trouble

So, I do not mean to offend anyone by saying that only if you live under a rock would you not know how George Zimmerman is.  He is the man who gunned down 17 year old Trayvon Martin and was acquitted of all legal charges under the "Stand Your Ground" law.  Now, I personally have my own beliefs about that whole situation because I used to live in Florida for over 10 years and I personally think Zimmerman should have been charged with something....maybe manslaughter.  The reasons for this is plenty and to spare a huge debate, I am not going to get into all the reasons however, there is new information that that makes me believe even more in my personal opinion that Zimmerman should be in jail for Trayvon's murder.

Zimmerman seems to not be able to stay away from the police.  I say this because he has had a bunch of run ins with law enforcement since being arrested for Trayvon's death.  He has had several speeding offenses.  However, more importantly some of his run ins involved threatening with a gun (his estranged wife and her father).  Lastly, Zimmerman was just arrested this last Monday (November 18) and is being charges with aggravated assault with a weapon, criminal mischief and battery mischief.  All this is due to the fact that according to reports, Zimmerman had a dispute with his girlfriend leading to him breaking a table, pointing a long-barreled shotgun at her and finally kicking her out of the home and then barricading himself in the home forcing police officers to push their way into the home.

Now, just looking at the facts of his run ins with the law and the common offenses of threatening, assault, using his weapon, shortness of temper....maybe, just maybe just was not served when Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin.  I am just saying that it just seems like Zimmerman seems to have a problem with his anger and because of a loop hole in one law....he got to walk as a free man after killing another person.  What are y'all's thoughts?  I would love to get a discussion going on this, however, please be respectful to everyone's opinions.
