Since former neighborhood watch fanatic George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin in July, he has carried a gun for his own protection.

But, according to Lake Mary (Florida) police, Zimmerman did not have a gun during a domestic dispute with his wife, Shellie, at his father-in-law's house yesterday.

“I’m really, really afraid,” Shellie told a 911 dispatcher, after alleging that Zimmerman threatened her and her father with a gun.

“[H]e’s in his car,” Shellie said during the 5-minute 911 call. “And he continually has his hands on his gun and he keeps saying, ‘Step closer.”

But after Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara arrived on the scene, Shellie's story changed. She signed paperwork confirming that she never saw a gun.

Later, during an interview on CNN, O'Mara admitted Zimmerman did have a gun on him, but "He never took the weapon out."

Pinellas County school bus attack

A young boy was savagely beaten by three teenage thugs on a Pinellas County school bus recently. The 13-year-old boy suffered a broken hand and facial injuries when three thugs.

But the bigger story here is the racist Pinellas County police department's decision to seek charges against the 64-year-old bus driver for not doing enough to stop the attack.

We've all seen videos of similar incidents of violence on board school buses and city buses. The bus drivers rarely get out of their seats to intervene for fear of becoming victims themselves.

It's clear that the police, prosecutors and the media are quick to judge James Moody because he is the same race as the three attackers.

Shoplifter runs over her son

A Macon woman is in police custody after she ran over her 4-year-old son in the parking lot while fleeing the Houston County Galleria in Centerville.

The tragic incident happened on Thursday night, when a Belk loss prevention officer observed Arkebia Albury, 25, shoplifting inside the store.

The security officer followed Albury and her children, ages 2 and 4, into the parking lot, according to a report on Macon.com.

When he ordered her to stop, Albury jumped into her 2001 Toyota Camry and hit the gas, but only her 2-year-old had made it into the passenger side of the car.

As the officer pleaded with Albury to leave the 4-year-old until an ambulance arrived, Albury got out out of the car and picked up the injured child.

“She picks the little boy up and throws him in the car and drives off,” Centerville Police Chief Sidney Andrews said.

Police caught up with Albury's Toyota on Wilson Drive, near the mall. Emergency rescue personnel arrived and transported the child to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition with severe head and internal injuries.

“The child is in bad shape,” Andrews said. “It wasn’t looking too good.”

In addition to the 2 toddlers, Albury's sister and niece were also in the car. The women were not charged since they stayed in the car when the shoplifting occurred.

Andrews said he wasn't sure what was taken in the theft.

“I believe it was a couple of T-shirts. I do know it was clothing. It was a misdemeanor amount,” he said. “This certainly was not worth it.”

Albury is charged with with two counts of cruelty to children, reckless conduct and theft by shoplifting.

    Man says he was first to rescue Amanda Berry

    A Cleveland man says he was the first to rescue kidnap victim Amanda Berry from a Seymour Avenue clapboard house where she and 2 other women were imprisoned for over a decade.

    Angel Cordero is staking his claim to the $25,000 reward money offered by police for information leading to the whereabouts of the missing girls.

    Charles Ramsey, the neighbor credited with rescuing Berry, told CNN's Anderson Cooper that the money should go to the three kidnap victims, Berry, 27, Gina DeJesus, 24, and Michelle Knight, 32.

    The Cleveland 911 dispatcher who took kidnap victim Amanda Berry's call on Monday evening may lose his/her job for the callous way the call was handled.

    The unidentified dispatcher was cold and lacked empathy when Berry dialed 911 to report she had been kidnapped and held in a basement for 10 years by former Cleveland school bus driver Ariel Castro, 52.

    Audio of the 911 call angered many Cleveland residents who demanded to know why the unsympathetic "call taker" didn't keep Berry on the phone until police arrived.

    Ariel Castro Amanda Berry Gina DeJesus

    Three Ohio women who were snatched off the same Cleveland block about 10 years ago were found alive in the home of a Cleveland school bus driver on Monday.

    The driver, Ariel Castro, 52, was taken into custody Monday along with his 2 brothers. Castro kept the women hidden in a basement for 10 years, according to police. At least one of the women gave birth to a daughter, now 6, while in captivity.

    Charles Ramsey, a neighbor who rescued Amanda Berry, 27, Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, said he was at McDonald's when he heard a woman screaming hysterically inside a nearby house.

    "This girl is kicking the door and screaming," he told local NBC affiliate WKYC-TV.

    Ramsey said the woman screamed, "Help me get out! I'm Amanda Berry... I've been missing for 10 years!" Ramsey said he believed the woman was involved in a domestic violence dispute.

    Berry was snatched at age 16 in 2003, as she left her job at McDonald's. DeJesus was 14 when she was taken while walking home from school in 2004. Knight was kidnapped in 2002.

    Ramsey and another man broke down the door so Berry could escape. "We had to kick open the bottom," Ramsey told WEWS-TV. "Lucky on that door it was aluminum. It was cheap. She climbed out with her daughter."

    “I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms," Ramsey told the station. "Either she homeless or she's got problems. That's the only reason she'd run to a black man!"
