    George Zimmerman Charges With Aggravated Assault Of Girlfriend

    George Zimmerman has been arrested again. This time for aggravated assault against his new girlfriend. I hope people are finally seeing this guy for his true colors, and realize that they cheered for a seriously disturbed individual who got away with murder.
