FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.

# 8 - being issued a warning ticket, he signed it--maybe Highway Patrol officer made a photocopy of it. Someone got the report rapidly to post it online. Usually a waiting period of several days before tickets are normally available for release.

Guess what-- Florida and Texas have reciprocity regard their concealed-carry licenses--GZ´s Florida permit is good in Texas. Guess what else--even without a permit, it´s legal to carry a handgun in your car in Texas as long as you aren´t committing a jailable offense (ie not a traffic offense). #3 is not far off the mark... Guess what else? CBS is a putrescent pile of of--well you probably guessed it.

So Holder didn´t get his way when he stated that Zimmerman shouldn´t receive his gun back.

The only bad thing with this is that Zimmerman´s whereabouts have been disclosed.

Go to DRUDGE and see a still shot from the officer´s car cam.

The vehicle,(with license plate) that Zimmerman is driving is clearly identifiable, and the article gives the make, model and year!

Typical See Bee Ess bias in the headline. Zimmerman was not "armed". That infers that you have the weapon on your person. Reading the police report, something the "reporter" at See Bee Ess obviously did not do, it clearly states that Zimmerman informed the officer that he had a gun in the glove compartment, a proper place to carry it while driving.

And still they wonder why their ratings are swirling the bowl.

If I were George Zimmerman I would be armed. It is a common sense measure. There have been countless death threats in public and doubtless many more in private. To report this simple and obvious act of self-defense as though it were notable or newsworthy is incredibly foolish and biased. It is characteristic of contemporary journalism.

A headline reading "George Zimmerman found to be unarmed when stopped for speeding" would be newsworthy because it would indicate something contrary to logic and human experience."

This headline and the story accompanying it are the work of sissies.

In Texas, you can carry a gun in your vehicle while traveling anywhere in the State. You do not have to inform the officer that you have a weapon, but most Texans do let the officer know we are carrying a gun in our vehicle, out of common courtesy for the officer. Most officers behave exactly like this officer when you do inform them about your pistol.

NBC News online has a video cam recording of the actual stop. The police car pulls in behind him and the license plate is visible.

I couldn´t make out what was on his license tag, but I´m wondering if it is possible to make it clear enough to figure it out. If so, that should not have been made available to news outlets, or anyone else for obvious reasons.

Warning ticket? The cop probably just wanted his autograph.

He may be here house hunting. Had his case happened here it NEVER would have made it to trial. Unlike Florida, in Texas ONLY a Grand Jury can render a felony indictment and no Texas GJ would do it based on that evidence.
It only went to trial in Florida because after the local DA refused to press charges the Governor or AG appointed a special prosecutor who got a judge to render an indictment, something which cannot happen under Texas law.

When the cop asked Zimmerman where he was going he answered nowhere in particular. The cop asked him why he said that. Zimmerman replied: "Didn´t you see my name?" Of course, he was not going to give his destination.

When he was declared not guilty they gave him back his gun before he left the court house.

Yes, it was wrong to speed. I am also a sinner. I have received a ticket for speeding. Coming back from Georgia, to Florida, I did get a little too eager. So what? Am I a criminal?

GZ was acquitted. He is now a private citizen. What is the media trying to do to Zimmerman. Of course he is armed, he needs to be after the way he is being treated by the media. I think that they hope that he gets gunned down on the street. The left wing lowlife media would love that. What scum. Let George be, he didn´t do anything wrong.

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels. Biofuels have struggled to reach the volumes

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
