George Zimmerman Volunteered As Security Guard At Florida Gun Store

ORLANDO, Fla. — For a time, George Zimmerman helped a friend who owns a DeLand gun store by acting as a volunteer security guard, an employee reported Tuesday.

Orlando-area news organizations Tuesday morning reported that Zimmerman was working at Pompano Pat’s, a DeLand gun and motorcycle shop.

If true, that would have been his first job in two years, since he killed Trayvon Martin, a black 17-year-old who was walking through Zimmerman’s Sanford neighborhood in 2012.

Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch volunteer, claimed self-defense and was acquitted of second-degree murder, but the homicide and his acquittal resulted in protest marches.

Sam Porter, an employee at Pompano Pat’s, said Tuesday that Zimmerman is not an employee.

“George has a good heart,” Porter said. “We were broken into about two and a half weeks ago and had some guns stolen, so I think he took it upon himself to try to help the owner.”

After hours, Zimmerman watched over the store from his pickup, Porter said.

A police officer on routine patrol recently spotted him, Porter said, and Zimmerman said he was acting as a security guard.

    Not to be offensive to anyone, but do you remember the old line from the Eastwood movie “Bronco Billy.” Where one of the bad guys is bad mouthing what he will do to Billy. “Shaking like a blind f*gg*t at a wienie roast.” Well, that is Zip-Head. He just cannot find any peace unless he is fingering some guns. And, to follow the sexual connection, I doubt he can make it with a woman at all. Only guns seem to give him an orgasm.

      It IS offensive, though, but mostly because you make such a stretch to make it work as an analogy. Who would think of such a thing, and why? No offense intended. But people say “no offense” all the time, while saying offensive things that they really didn’t intend to be offensive. My recommendation is that we all stop doing that because it’s impossible to read BETWEEN those lines.
