In an interview on the "Today Show" yesterday, Shellie Zimmerman, former wife of George Zimmerman, stated that "I think anyone would doubt that innocence because I don't know the person that I've been married to... I have doubts, but I also believe the evidence."
Shellie, who had stood by George during his entire trial, has recently come forth with her thoughts toward George Zimmerman and his trial, following their recent divorce.
"I believe the evidence, but this revelation in my life has really helped me take the blinders off and start to see things differently," Shellie said, referencing the recent domestic dispute between herself and George.
Earlier this month, Shellie Zimmerman filed for divorce, stating that “The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken.” Shellie had been of much assistance to George during his trial, corroborating his story at every turn and even committing perjury in order to get him released on a lesser bail. However, when the couple returned home, Shellie said that their relationship just wasn't the same: "He just kind of treated me like I was disposable. After standing by him, he kind of left and kind of went on a victory tour without me. I thought that I was living a life with him and that we were going to kind of rebuild after all this, and he had other plans for me."
Apparently, those other plans included a physical confrontation at their Lake Mary, Florida home just a few days after Shellie filed for divorce. According to Shellie, George had given her permission to go to the home and gather her belongings while he wasn't there. George did show up, though, and the two were quickly engaged in a heated argument. At one point during the domestic dispute, Shellie reported that George appeared to reach for a gun tucked in his shirt, a story corroborated by another witness.
In her call to 911, Shellie told the dispatcher "I don't know what he's capable of." Matt Lauer questioned Shellie about this statement on the "Today Show", asking her if she meant to intentionally call question to his behavior on the night when he shot Trayvon Martin. Shellie responded: “I really don't know what he's capable of. This person that I'm married to that I'm divorcing, I've kind of realized now that I don't know him and I really don't know what he's capable of. I saw a look in his eyes that I've never seen before that day."
These statements by his wife, the police reports that have been filed concerning the domestic dispute, and his multiple traffic violations can only make one wonder who George Zimmerman really is? It is apparent by now that there are two conflicting images: 1) The George Zimmerman who is an American patriot and upstanding citizen who feels a moral obligation to protect his country and neighborhood, as he was doing the night of the Trayvon Martin incident and the day he rescued a family from a car wreck; and 2) The George Zimmerman who feels compelled to continually break traffic laws, berate his wife, threaten others and brandish a gun, and shot total disregard for his own personal well-being.
