This is the man who accuses Zimmerman of reckless driving and "road rage" when the only traffic violation Zimmerman has ever had was for speeding. The media and blood thirsty attorneys are the ones actually responsible for what happened in Lake Mary yesterday. To deflect blame from themselves, they continue to pile it on George Zimmerman, as if he somehow asked for a delusional, spoiled rich kid to shoot at him while George was visiting his mother for mother's day. Zimmerman was on his way to his Doctor's office, which is where all three incidents with Apperson have initiated - Apperson's family owns a law firm, WK White Associates, in the same strip center. I wonder if there is someone in the Dr's office giving Apperson the information on Zimmerman's appointments.
The Daily MailNote: The gun was not retrieved from Zimmerman's truck, he gave his gun to police. At the time this article was published, the search warrant for Zimmerman's truck had not been executed.
Police seize handgun from George Zimmerman's truck as man who shot at him claims he acted in self defense after Trayvon Martin's killer pulled weapon FIRST-
The shooting also marks the latest in a string of violent incidents and bizarre behavior Zimmerman has been involved in and exhibited since he was acquitted of murder in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin. [Link]
Bystander Ken Cornell said a man -- who identified himself to police as Apperson -- came up to him, screaming, "Please call 911. ... I just shot George Zimmerman."
While Cornell did not see the incident or see Zimmerman, he described Apperson as a "shaken guy in his car."
(In the body of the article is a link to all of Zimmerman's past arrests)
Zimmerman's attorney, Don West, said Zimmerman was driving into a retail center when a car came up behind him, flashing its lights and honking. Zimmerman claimed the other driver yelled at him, West said.
When Zimmerman tried to leave, West said, the other driver pulled up and fired a shot through the passenger side window of Zimmerman's truck.
Does this remind anyone else of the incident that landed Michael Dunn in prison for life after he shot and killed Jordan Davis who was in a fleeing vehicle? For shooting into the moving vehicle alone, the Judge added 15 years to Dunn's sentence.
As was the case in the first incidents between Zimerman and Apperson, Apperson didn't have a phone. Just my opinion, but if you don't have a phone, you can say you couldn't dial 911 when you were in fear for your life. We'll see. Cornell didn't mention anything about Apperson "screaming" when he came up to him in his interview with WESH.

SUBJECT INVOLVED IN THE SHOOTING
Why hasn't there been an arrest? Chief Bracknell of the Lake Mary Police department has shown his disdain for George Zimmerman before in an email he wrote to a private citizen when Shellie Zimmerman accused George of attacking her father (father refused medical treatment or to file charges) in 2014. He also likens Zimmerman to the shooter in the Sandy Hook massacre.
"REST ASSURED, the last thing on planet earth I want is ANY relationship with theZimmermans. PERIOD The only guiding influence here is simply the law. Remember, wewere the agency that wrote him a $256.00 citation last week! No freebees here in Lake Mary."The citizen opines that George Zimmerman is "Sandy Hook waiting to happen", to which Chief Bracknell replies in email:
"Your reference to Sandy Hook...................... I agree"To some, Apperson is a hero to the African American community
I just want to give a shout out to the wrong Matt Apperson on twitter for having such a great sense of humor about his name being associated with the shooter in this case.
