George Zimmerman’s Father Retired Judge

Robert Zimmerman, a former Orange County magistrate judge, recently wrote a letter to The Orlando Sentinel defending his son, who’s been dragged through the mud for shooting the unarmed 17-year-old last month. In the letter, the senior Zimmerman asks people not to jump to conclusions and insists that his son didn’t follow the young boy home as he walked through their gated community.

“He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever. The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth. At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details of the event became public, and I hope that will be soon, everyone should be outraged by the treatment of George Zimmerman in the media,” wrote Robert Zimmerman.

Now more info is being dug up on his “victimized” son through public records and revealing his checkered past.

According to a records search on George, he was previously arrested for domestic violence, resisting an officer without violence and most shockingly, resisting an officer with violence — a felony charge that surely could have landed him in prison.

All three of those arrests, however, were mysteriously closed with no semblance of charges for the Florida resident. So how was someone with a violent past including that of battery against an officer able to carry a 9 mm handgun? Maybe that’s a question Robert Zimmerman should answer.

  1. JUSTICE WON’T BE SERVED! George Zimmermans father is a Federal Circuit Judge. His name Judge Robert Zimmerman. He clearly is paying Joe Oliver who is not working any longer at CNN married to a white woman. He got someone who is on the inside of the Media and worked there. How smart. Zimmermans lawyer nor problematic son couldn’t stand up to questions from Lawrence O’Donald so he ran out of the studio. George Zimmerman is a drunk and have given him (Judge Zimmerman) problems for years!!!! The evidence is wiped away so everything goes on Trayvonn… Joe Oliver flat out lied George Zimmerman is 250 pounds probably fatter and is losing wait. If you listen to the 911 tapes the woman says he had on a white shirt; the police deliberately confused what each person was wearing to clear Zimmerman position. That is in the amended police report. Zimmerman change clothes and does not have a broken noise; his convenent outing used is he didn’t want ambulance help. Daddy Judge money has manipulated everything… His son will walk…. And another child would be the tool used in the media. George Zimmerman is a COWARD hiding behind Daddies money and the people he paid off…

    • Zimmerman’s Dad was never a judge, but was rather a magistrate in Virginia. Under Virginia law, magistrates are sort of like a justice of the peace. Virginia law also prohibits magistrates from having any trial functions.They’re not required to have a law degree (in fact, individuals practicing law are prohibited from being appointed as magistrate), and do not have a lot of clout. Up until 2008 or so, Virginia magistrates were not even required to have a college degree.

      Obviously, that’s a long, long way away from the Federal Circuit Judge post you’ve alleged above. Hell… a Federal Circuit judge is one step away from the US Supreme Court. Robert Zimmerman couldn’t get a rest room attendant’s job at a Federal Circuit court.

      Makes me wonder what other facts you were willing to stretch to absurd lengths.

  2. I agree, this case make me as a White woman who fought with many Civil Activist, truly ashamed of our Justice System here in the 21st Century! I never thought after all of the hardships that it would have resulted in going back Pre-1965……I only hope that we all can continue to fight for the Justice that is needed in this case! Zimmerman has gotten away with this crap for way too long now or Trayvon would still be with us all today!

    Zimmerman needs a Life Sentence and without his parents just as Trayvon’s parents will now have to live without their beautiful son.

    I my prayers are with Trayvon’s parents and family, I lite a candle each night with prayers in hopes to ease at least some of their pain.

  3. To Judge Robert Zimmerman

    We know that you can and will clear your son whom did wrong.
    Now Robert you was not there to see anything okay so do go out hear and starting speaking that your son didn’t do any thing wrong. If you listen to all the calls and the 911 police told your son to stay in his car. As I see your son don’t take order well. Oh now your son have a record in the police department. Oh and it is reported your son have been calling 911 46 time on ever one in that area.
    So Robert you have all the answers. Robert do us all a big favor please DO NOT say other word about your son and please stop paying peolpe off to talk all these nice things about your son.
    Robert since you like to talk why you & your wife didn’t say kind words to the Martin after your son kill there son. Oh no your cant do that.
    Your son attack that young boy. Your son never ever had any injured done to him so stop the LIES. that why your can’t sleep. But God have the answer to all of this.
    May GOD Be With Your killers SON

  4. I wonder if Judge Zimmerman called (or was called by) Norm Wolfinger previous to the decision not to charge his son. It is most strange that they let Zimmerman leave the police station with his holster and the weapon that had just been involved a killing. Any police officer will tell you that is a bizarre fact that makes no sense; unless, Judge Zimmerman was contacted and he used his position as a former Judge to influence the State’s Attorney, who, then, decided not to charge his son. A simple check of Judge Zimmerman’s phone records that evening will show who he spoke with after Trayvon Martin’s shooting. If he spoke with either his son, law enforcement; the DA, the States Attorney’s office; he should be arrested and indicted right along with his son.

    • In Brevard County where Wolfinger presides Sheriff Parker’s nephew (Mike Allen?) in 2006 road raged ran a man off the road and stuck his pistol in the man’s face screaming “I’m gonna pull the trigger!’. This occurred in Marion County. The case was transferred from Marion County to Brevard County and Sheriff Parker’s nephew got 8 hours anger management class as a punishment. He was able to keep is pistol also. There are 2 sets of laws in Norm Wolfinger’s world. One set for civilians like you and me and another set for the sons and nephews of non-civilians. Same old same old. I know this story because my neighbor was in Sheriff Parker’s nephews anger management class. My neighbor got 40 hours because of a verbal argument with his ex-wife. Maybe he should have have checked who his extended family members were first? That would have helped if he was related to a judge or a sheriff.

  5. I live in michigan and have a permit to carry a concealed pistol. In michigan if I were just arrested fore domestic violence and not convicted I would autonomously be denied a permit

  6. It’s Zimmerman’s father’s fault that his son murdered Trayvon Martin because Zimmerman’s father, who is a judge, pulled strings to keep his son out of prison for assaulting a law enforcement officer, and assaulting an ex-girlfriend, etc. Because of Zimmerman’s father, his son George believed he could get a way with murder. George needs to pay for his crimes once and for all.
