    George Zimmerman
    DASHCAM VIDEO
    Stopped By Cops

    What a coincidence as the cop is heard saying in the video

    [​IMG]

    "1:55 PM PT -- We've obtained the police dashcam video of the stop ... in which George Zimmerman informs the cop he has a firearm in his glove box.

    George Zimmerman is still armed and theoretically dangerous ... he was stopped by cops for speeding and revealed he had a gun in his glove compartment.

    Zimmerman was speeding in Forney, Texas on Sunday, just after noon, when he was stopped by police. Zimmerman told cops he was headed "nowhere in particular," and informed them he had a firearm in his glove compartment.

    Zimmerman was given a warning, after cops determined he was free of warrants. He was sent on his way with a polite goodbye, "Have a safe trip."

    The stop lasted around 5 minutes.

    BTW ... law enforcement tells TMZ ... he was NOT wearing a disguise ... it was full blown George Zimmerman."

    Cop seems like a nice guy.."What a coincidence". No problem with carrying the weapon in Texas, either. I like it.

    Seriously, wouldn't you guys be legally changing your last name and also go out in public places in disguise knowing all the death threats out there? It's not like he has a body guard riding with him like all those famous people.

    Zimmerman did not sound good there.

    "Nowhere in particular." And then after the officer says what a coincidence, Zimmerman seems to get cagey all of a sudden, you can hear him get nervous (if inaudible) and the cop has to tell him "Calm down man, you're good."

    Cop really handled this well. Therapist and badge rolled into one

    Maybe his last experience with law enforcement -- a certain state attorney and even USAG -- left him a little paranoid about their ability to falsify evidence against an innocent person and suffer no repercussions for doing so.

    It is more legal to have the gun, than it is to speed.

    I don't think Zimmerman understands the concept of laying low very well.

    Who cares about this cop wannabe? Is the new patron saint of the extreme right? He had his two years of fame. Let him be, let us be! Jeez!

    No. Just the cop wannabes.

    On a positive note, this LEO was very professional. Need more like him.

    lol, and neither should about 95% of the licensed drivers in the world.

    Please note that the cop said it was not excessive speeding.
    I am sure that if Zimmerman had been 20+ MPH over the posted limit the story would of ended up different.

    I guess Jackson and Sharpton are going to raise some crap in Texas now because a white cop gave Zimmerman a break.

    Maybe they will call for a boycot on Texas oil and and Lone Star beer.

    Considering this hit the news almost instantly, why would he tell anyone where he's going to be or who's he's going to see? So he can be a target for all the pro-Trayvon kooks around the country indiscriminately attacking white people?

    If I was a nationally known figure like him under those circumstance I too wouldn't have said where I'm going either.

    Yeah, shocking that Zimmerman would be nervous/have this reaction to law enforcement.
