George Zimmerman Lawyer Calls Brother’s Racist Tirade ‘Inappropriate’

A stream of racist tweets comparing Trayvon Martin to alleged baby killer De’Marquise Elkins? Robert Zimmerman Jr. is doing his brother no favors, George’s lawyer tells Winston Ross.

If there’s one takeaway from the racist tirade Robert Zimmerman Jr. launched on Twitter over the past few days, it’s this: he and his younger brother are not sharing the same public-relations playbook.
The elder Zimmerman kicked things off by tweeting an “uncanny” image of Trayvon Martin—the 17-year-old unarmed black teenager George Zimmerman shot and killed last year in Sanford, Fla.—next to a picture of another 17-year-old black teenager, De’Marquise Elkins, who stands accused of a horrific crime: shooting a 13-month-old baby in the face last week in Georgia.

Robert Zimmerman Jr.’s caption: “A picture speaks a thousand words. Any questions?”

Then came this tweet, for clarification: “Teen to West (the baby’s mother): ‘Do you want me to shoot your baby?’ #TrayvonMartin to #GeorgeZimmerman: You’re gonna die tonight Motherf**ker.”

The backlash that ensued was swift, and fierce. User @Tisha Starr tweeted: “@rzimmermanjr I just saw 20 pics of teens of all colors flipping the bird, I wondered which one of them will kill tonight!”

“C’mon,” Zimmerman tweeted back. “That’s not the point.”

So what is? In more tweets, Zimmerman walked from one position to the next, from “the way people choose 2publicly portray themselves (with middle fingers) speaks volumes about their character” to “Lib media shld ask if what these2 black teens did 2 a woman&baby is the reason ppl think blacks mightB risky” to the same media’s so-called hypocrisy in highlighting the race issue in the Martin case and supposedly ignoring it with Elkins.

After several requests, Zimmerman replied to an inquiry from The Daily Beast on Tuesday with a direct message: “It’s my birthday, will do the best I can 2 reach U... Thanx4 writing.” His followers had plenty to add. @GreatThee: “17 year old De Marquise Elkins shot a 2 year old baby in his carriage last week. Where is the liberal/black outrage?” And this, which Zimmerman retweeted, from @Talkmaster: “Trayvon Martin story exploded in media. White baby shot in face by black teenager—not so much. We all understand why.”  READ MORE

police-citizen encounters which invoke the fourth amendment: police-citizen communications

[NBC RESPONSE PDF ] Case No. 2012-CA-006178

UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff-Appellee,
Alirio HASTAMORIR, Hernan Lopez, Antonio Ledezma, Defendants-Appellants.

We have identified three categories of police-citizen encounters which invoke the fourth amendment: police-citizen communications involving no coercion or detention; brief seizures or investigative detentions; and full-scale arrests. United States v. Espinosa-Guerra,805 F.2d 1502, 1506 (11th Cir.1986); United States v. Berry,670 F.2d 583, 591 (5th Cir. Unit B 1982) (in banc). The first category of police-citizen encounters fails to implicate fourth amendment scrutiny. The second category, investigative detentions, involves reasonably brief encounters in which a reasonable person would have believed that he or she was not free to leave. READ MORE

What Qualifications Do You Need to Be a Bouncer?

Most establishments that hire bouncers will require the bouncers to attend some kind of training either in-house or provided by an outside security training organization. Training may include legal issues and laws concerning use of physical force, alcohol, under-aged patrons and proper criminal procedures in working with law enforcement. Training also may encompass acceptable combat and self-defense moves for a bouncer in addition to sensitivity training to ensure bouncers are not overly aggressive in the course of the job. Required training regulations may differ according to the state. In California for example, regulations stipulate that a bouncer should attend the Skills Training Course for Security Guards in order to receive a security license.


A successful bouncer must possess certain personality traits and people skills to maintain order and enforce rules and regulations. He must have an ability to confront offenders in a manner that conveys authority but without further provoking or antagonizing any individual or group. An overly aggressive demeanor can exacerbate a difficult situation, so a bouncer must possess or learn to develop the skills needed to diffuse tension.
