TRAYVON MARTIN KILLER, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN WAS STOPPED BY POLICE IN TEXAS AND A GUN WAS FOUND ON HIM
Just 15 days after being acquitted for second-degree murder in the shooting of unarmed black Florida teen Trayvon Martin, the 29-year-old former neighborhood watchman was back to packing heat.
An armed George Zimmerman prompted a Texas cop to draw his weapon when he was pulled over for speeding near Dallas with “nowhere in particular” to go, officials said Wednesday.
Zimmerman was driving a gray 2008 Honda pickup truck with Florida plates when he was pulled over Sunday.
The stop was caught on tape by the police cruiser’s dashcam
Zimmerman immediately informed the officer he had a firearm in his glove box.
The officer responded by pushing his sunglasses up on his forehead, drawing his service weapon with his left hand and staring cautiously into the cab.
“Just take it easy. Go ahead and shut your glove compartment and don’t play with your firearm. Okay?” the officer told Zimmerman, who never got out of his truck.
When asked where he was going, Zimmerman told the cop, “Nowhere in particular.”

Zimmerman asked the officer if he recognized him from television. When he looked closer at Zimmerman’s driver’s license, the cop exclaimed, “Wow! What a coincidence!”
After requesting a warrant check, the officer handed Zimmerman back his license, told him to “Have a safe trip,” and let him go.
Robert Zimmerman Jr. posted a message on Twitter Wednesday in an apparent attempt to explain why his brother was driving while armed.
“Our family receives innumerable death threats on a daily basis,” Robert Zimmerman said.
On July 17, Zimmerman helped pull a family from an overturned SUV in Sanford, Fla., about a mile from where he shot Trayvon to death.
