I'm nervous about next week. We've all seen how good the defense is at spinning facts and how lackluster De la Rionda is when it comes to challenging them. If he doesn't object at every turn and go aggressively against the defense's witnesses, we're screwed. He simply cannot continue in the same style that he has exhibited so far. I sincerely hope he realizes that. Evidence is on his side but not sure about the hearts and minds of the jury. I hope he gets to think it through this weekend.
The following is a history dating back to 2004 of George Zimmerman’s calls to 911 for various reasons he called an Emergency number which is supposed to be used for emergencies and he did so repeatedly over many years.
You would think that the Sanford Police would have figured out, this guy has a problem or would have added up the number of calls to their switchboards, however they did not stop the guy or have an interview with him about the nature of the calls.
It was as if, Zimmerman was anticipating people’s motives, predicting what they were up to when most were innocent people walking or children playing near a street.
Some of the calls were about potholes that would damage a car, or kids playing in the street, or kids having a party, or teens enjoying a pool area of an apartment building, or arguments in shopping centers, or “suspicious looking people” such as Trayvon Martin. Some calls were identified as anonymous caller, although the phone number was traced back to George Zimmerman and his file at the police station.
Why this man did not set off alarm bells to community watch organizations, or the police is beyond understanding.
The overwhelming majority of calls can be described as “nuisance calls” and in some states where police are spread thin, these calls cost taxpayers plenty of money.
These calls from a guy who has too much time on his hands that he complains about people having a party, a nosey guy who thought he was the law and order of the neighborhood, a presumption that would later lead him to murder.
The records are from the City of Sanford and logged in an Event Report that recorded his 46 calls in total from 2004 to 2011.

He matches the description that was give -subject was on foot. In this case, George Zimmerman calls the police on a person he suspects is going to commit a crime. No notes on whether this was a suspect or not in the final report, its left blank. S-12
Caller listed as: George: Subject: 1017 Two Black Males wearing black tank tops, and black shorts, at the back gate of the neighborhood, Subject will run into the subdivision next to the complex and will also be near the back gate. As the hero here, George Zimmerman is lurking in the back of buildings in this neighborhood -hoping to catch someone who’s black.
Caller: George Zimmerman, Subject: References an open garage door, the conversation includes a mention of the Neighborhood Watch- a Sergeant Herx, and a silver Nissan Xterra in garage.
Oct. 1, 2011 12:55 a.m. This is a late call. Now the police reports refer to him as: George Zimmerman -Night Watch – without qualifying if George is hired, or trained to do what he is doing.

Zimmerman inferred himself on a scene where he should not have involved himself.
At this point, Zimmerman is emboldened by his self-assurance and power that he can do pretty much whatever he wants to and just report people at will without police training.
Jan. 29, 2012 5: 39 p.m. This is the first incident of the year that Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin.
Caller: George Zimmerman, Subject: complaint that kids are playing in the streets, 4 to 11 years old, “running and playing in the street”. Police reported that each time a car came by the kids would move off this street, and none of them were blocking traffic.
Another assumption and nuisance call by George Zimmerman complaining about kids playing as if that was a crime. Calling police out to these types of calls is a waste of taxpayers money, a waste of an officers time when he/she can be attending to “real crimes”.
Caller: George -Neighborhood Watch. ( this was never verified by police that he was actually not a part of an organized neighborhood watch group). Subject: George Zimmerman spots a black man, black hat, black leather jacket, and reports to police that the owner of 1460 Retreat View Circle is a white male. This indicates Zimmerman was profiling people in the neighborhood. Police arrived and the residence was fine and secure 10-4.
Feb. 26, 2012 7:11 p.m. Long Oak Way, Twin Trees Lane, Twin Lakes Townhouses, Lake Mary- Sanford, Fla. Caller: George Zimmerman, 1017 area for black male, late teens, dar gray hood, jeans, walking around area – complain that there are robberies in the area.
This was the night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin with a gun he was not authorized to be carrying as a neighborhood watchman.
This was the last entry in police records of George Zimmerman’s career in obsessive, crime fighting which over the entire 8 years, George Zimmerman didn’t catch one thief, didn’t report a real crime and became a police officers worst nuisance.
Had the Sanford police been more alerted to the fact that this guy was a flake, and was making numerous calls, they should have investigated him further to see if he was mentally balanced.
By the obvious nature of the calls, Zimmerman was on a man hunt for blacks, hoping to catch them in a crime and calling about garbage and pot holes.
In some cases, police will lay charges on nuisance calls if someone makes an over abundant number of calls which turn out to be inconsequential.
