Zimmerman will not be prosecuted for Domestic Violence Charges

George Zimmerman, 2012
George Zimmerman will not face prosecution in the case brought against him by Seminole County prosecutors.  I'm not sure what their "probable cause" was to arrest him in the first place.  They charged him based on a 911 call made by a woman, Samantha Scheibe,  who was trying to sell a story - and she should now be prosecuted.  George's haters are saying this is common with domestic violence victims, to recant their story, but if the Prosecution had probable cause when they brought felony aggravated assault charges they should have had more than her word and zero signs of an assault.  

George will never live a normal life.  Every argument he has with a girlfriend is going to be viewed as domestic violence and he will be raked over the coals and demonized.  Aren't we all lucky we can argue with our spouses and significant others without ending up in jail or having our rights taken away from us.  It's time to leave him the hell alone.  He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer and he has a broken picker, but that goes for 90% of the population - put away the stones, enough.

Shout out to Jayne Weintraub, his new attorney - I wish he'd had her for the past two years. She told reporters today: "Prosecutors were "very reasonable" and "justice prevailed." (pdf "No Information")
George Zimmerman will not be charged in domestic dispute, prosecutor says
George Zimmerman will not face charges in a domestic dispute that led to his arrest last month, Seminole-Brevard State Attorney Phil Archer announced on Wednesday, citing a lack of cooperation from Zimmerman's girlfriend.
The announcement comes days after a sworn statement was filed from Zimmerman's girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, who recanted the domestic violence allegations, and said she did not want to see Zimmerman prosecuted.
In a statement, Archer said that at the time of the arrest, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office did have probable cause to take Zimmerman into custody on aggravated assault and other charges.
"However, upon reviewing the recent affidavit... and taking into account the conflicting statements about what occurred, the failure to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, and a lack of any other corroborating evidence or witnesses, there is no reasonable likelihood of successful prosecution," Archer said.
