Shooter Was Fixated on George Zimmerman, Police Report Says
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man charged with shooting at George Zimmerman last week had “a fixation” on the former neighborhood watch leader and had recently been admitted to a mental institution, according to a police report made public Tuesday.
Gosh, poor Zimmerman. Imagine what it must be like being stalked by some crazy, paranoid guy with a gun! I mean, imagine if this had happened in the middle of the night and if George was being followed on foot? I wonder what would have happened then.
The Lake Mary Police Department report said that 36-year-old Matthew Apperson had shown signs of paranoia, anxiety and bipolar disorder. Apperson’s attorney, Mark NeJame, didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
Well that report must be wrong. I mean, if this guy had all those mental problems, surely his doctors would have tired to get his guns taken away. I mean, it’s not like there’s some law that says doctors in Florida can’t ask their patients about gun ownership.
