I only wish this was a surprise.

It is a fact that Zimmerman had a restraining order taken out against him by a former girlfriend. That he still shows violence as his nature is not a surprise.

George Zimmerman won't be charged after alleged domestic incident

It's so nice that the press treads so lightly on the muderers and calls Z an alleged offender.

How many times does he have to be "alleged" before it's just common sense?

When there is a pattern most people see it for what it is.

If he thinks they are punks who get away with something - he will just shoot a journalist. And he will get away with it. He will always get away with whatever he wants to do - and some idiots will set him up with a defense fund.
