Stuff you may have missed: November 18, 2013

Trayvon Martin shooter and all-around controversial guy George Zimmerman was just arrested on domestic violence charges. He apparently smashed a table and pointed a gun in his girlfriend’s face.

Because he dared perform a marriage for his gay son, a Pennsylvania United Methodist pastor was found guilty of violating church practices.

Dropbox, a company that (unlike Snapchat) has firm revenue streams, thinks it’s worth $8 billion. It probably is.

Wal-Mart may face federal labor charges for violating the rights of workers who chose to protest.

He says their general attitude was that he got what he deserved. He was in essence told to zip his lips. ‘Shut up. Don’t say those things,’ He wanted a question that would have allowed him to explain to the jury with scientific evidence how there was no way Trayvon Martin could have been on top of George Zimmerman.
Attorney Willie Gary • Detailing some allegations made by his new client, former Seminole/Volusia County, Florida medical examiner Dr. Shipping Bao, who testified in the George Zimmerman murder trial months ago. He was fired earlier this week, and has not gone silently, now publicly claiming he was wrongly scapegoated and fired following the trial, and suggesting prosecutors declined to question him on crucial evidence due to their own belief in Zimmerman’s innocence. It is of course worth noting, Bao’s accusations are also coming in the context of a $100 million dollar lawsuit over his termination. source

Like gangster Al Capone going to Alcatraz for tax evasion and O.J. Simpson serving time for robbing some sports memorabilia dealers, some interpret this series of unfortunate events as part of some cosmic comeuppance for a wannabe cop.

Lawyer, police give conflicting accounts of whether Zimmerman armed during domestic dispute

  • Yesterday Cable news and social media flared at reports that George Zimmerman, acquitted two months ago for the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin, had been detained by police following an alleged domestic incident between himself, his estranged wife Shellie Zimmerman, and her father. A released 911 call revealed the allegations in play — that Zimmerman punched his father-in-law, smashed an iPad (which may have contained video evidence of the incident), and threatened his wife while keeping his hand placed over his gun.
  • Today With the damaged iPad awaiting attempts to retrieve any consequential evidence, the last 24 hours have brought drastic changes to the contours of the case — both his wife and father-in-law have declined to press charges, and the Lake Mary Police Department says they found no evidence Zimmerman had his gun, though they didn’t search his vehicle, which Shellie Zimmerman claimed he was sitting inside at the time of her call. Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara (who won’t represent Zimmerman further, beyond a currently outstanding case), on the other hand, claimed Zimmerman did have his gun. Said Lake Mary Police officer Zach Hudson: “As of right now, a gun is not part of the equation.” source

I think that it will be seen as a questionable judgment on the part of the judicial system down there, but I don’t know if it will have staying power. These cases come along and they blaze across the midnight sky and then after a period of time, they’re forgotten.
