Police report: Zimmerman pulled over in Texas

George Zimmerman - who was acquitted earlier this month on murder charges tied to Trayvon Martin's death - was stopped this weekend for a traffic violation in North Texas, according to a report from the Forney, Texas, police department.

The incident happened shortly after noon Sunday, when an officer pulled over Zimmerman's 2008 gray Honda for what was described only as a traffic stop.

He was given a verbal warning, police said.

    Tomorrow, George Zimmerman goes to Olive Garden and eats some breadsticks.

    Saturday, George Zimmerman is seen walking a dog along a quiet street. It goes, and he picks up after it.

    What business is it of anyone else's if he was stopped for a traffic violation? And how dare you publish that he had his firearm with him?? This is rampant stalking by the media, at least. Concealed carry holders are required to conceal the fact they have a firearm unless they are compelled to use it, so why do you find it appropriate to announce on national television that he has his with him?? Do you know just how vulnerable that makes him to "revenge" from idiots that can claim he brandished his weapon as a threat and he would be arrested all over again, simply because they feel hatred for a man that has never done anything to them personally. He was found not guilty, it's over, leave it alone. Are we seriously going to scrutinize him for the rest of his life? Or is there no other sensationalized news you can report to drive up ratings and whip the public into a frenzy over while dividing the country and keeping the public easy to control?

      Is it anyone else's business if George Zimmerman is stopped? Yes. It is. Are you taking up for Mr. Zimmerman? FYI, its the publics' business if you or I get stopped, regardless whether or not anyone knows his itinerary. Most newspapers have a public legal section or blotter that make it public knowledge. So if you did nothing wrong, you need not worry about being publicized.
