Disney Princesses Depicted As Acid Attack Survivors Reflect Global Fight Against Atrocity



Seriously, How does Zimmerman keep getting away?


In July 2005, when he was 21, Zimmerman was arrested after shoving an undercover alcohol-control agent while a friend of Zimmerman's was being arrested for underage drinking. The officer alleged that Zimmerman had said, "I don't care who you are," followed by a profanity, and had refused to leave the area after the officer had shown their badge. The charges were subsequently dropped when Zimmerman entered a pre-trial diversion program that included anger-management classes. Also in 2005, Zimmerman's ex-fiancée filed a restraining order against him, alleging domestic violence. Zimmerman requested a reciprocal restraining order. Both orders were granted. These incidents were raised by prosecutors at Zimmerman's initial bond hearing. The judge described them as "run of the mill."

On September 9, 2013, in Lake Mary, Florida, police responded to a 911 call by Zimmerman's estranged wife, who reported that Zimmerman had threatened her and her father with a gun and had punched her father in the face. Zimmerman was briefly detained and questioned by police. No gun was found at the scene. Police took a broken iPad from the scene for examination of a video recording of the incident to determine whether to press charges against either Zimmerman or his wife. His wife declined to press charges, later expressing regret about her decision. After determining that the iPad video could not be recovered, the Lake Mary police department announced they would not be pressing charges against Zimmerman, his wife, or her father.

On November 18, 2013, Zimmerman's girlfriend called the police alleging that after she had asked Zimmerman to leave her home, he had pointed a shotgun at her and begun breaking her belongings. The police reported that Zimmerman had barricaded himself inside the apartment before they had made their way inside and arrested him. He was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon – a felony – as well as domestic violence battery and criminal mischief. On December 6, Zimmerman's girlfriend asked that the charges against Zimmerman be dropped and that the restraining order barring him from seeing her be lifted, after which prosecutors said that they would no longer be pursuing a case against him.

On Tuesday September 9, 2014, George Zimmerman was named by police in a road rage incident where he reportedly threatened and followed another driver. Zimmerman reportedly responded aggressively when he noticed another driver pointing at him. According to the other driver Zimmerman said "Do you know who I am?" before saying, "I'll (expletive) kill you." Zimmerman allegedly followed the other driver to a parking lot while the driver called 911, but he fled before the police arrived. The other driver declined to press charges.

On January 9, 2015, Zimmerman was arrested by Lake Murray police and charged with aggravated assault with a weapon after allegedly throwing a wine bottle at his ex-girlfriend. He was released on bond the following day. The charges from the wine bottle incident were later dropped after the complainant recanted her story

Now he will not be charged Federal hate crime. This is scary.

Well my wife knew it was coming she got laid off in a sense today

She is with a staffing agency and working for a company on a temp bases but it was suppose to be a 6 month deal. The company wasn't doing the volume it had expected and wife was basically reading books a HUGE chunks during her hours at work. So she knew it would happen but she still has this look in her face. This isn't going to help with her depression and anxiety.

Any suggestions? She is of course looking and has been but I just am worried about her sinking deeper if that makes sense.

anyone having issues getting onto Facebook,yahooo or youtube?

It seems our computer is giving us issue. It tells us those sites have been compromised and gives us the do not enter symbol.

The sign that corporate America is feeling the pinch of the vise that has squeezed the middle class.


Walmart increased wages.

question about Zoloft... Wife took her first dose today and while she was at work

she seemed restless. She just got home and told me she drumming or tapping her fingers a lot. She seemed to walk around more than usual. yeah, the place she is working is a slow place so she waits a while for paperwork to come in so she will sometimes take walks around the warehouse but tonight she seemed to walk more than usual.

Is this normal? Is she have a reaction? I am only concern because she had some weird reactions to fake sugars they make her jigger.

Her doctor said the pill gives people energy and it can make people nausea and may cause her to throw up but if she can hang on for a couple weeks that will subside and the medicine will start working. She did tell my wife that it will take about 6 weeks to really work. I am concern of an adverse reaction or am I getting worried for nothing?

Now for my own drama. Got passed over for a promotion. It went to the less

qualify candidate. The guy hasn't even been at the hotel for 90 days. He can't balance the draw and is constantly asking questions YET they make him front desk supervisor.

I have 13 years of hotel experience. When I first started at this new hotel the manager was basically force to resign ( he was caught steeling) leaving only me the Assistant General manager and a part time front desk girl. I was working between 60 to 70 hours a week. We did this for two months.

I am so pissed.

So your mind is put to ease. My wife got in to a pcp today

She was given a script of Zoloft 50 mg once a day. She goes back for an adjustment in 2 weeks.

How or who does my wife approach to see if they will help her with an emotional support animal?

Is this legit? Can my wife actually be evaluated for a service animal online? This is too good to

be true.


thanks for the hearts.
