George Zimmerman was questioned Monday by Lake Mary, Florida, police after his estranged wife, Shellie Zimmerman, claimed he threatened her and her father with a gun.
In her 911 call, Zimmerman said her husband hit her father in the nose and threatened them with a gun.
George Zimmerman is no longer being detained and his wife declined prosecution, according to police. Still, the overwhelming majority of online reaction has basically been one big SMH.
George Zimmerman doesn’t understand what “take a low profile” means.

Under Florida's Stand Your Ground law, George Zimmerman's father-in-law could have shot him. #karmafail

We're not there just yet, but FYI: In Florida, "surrender of firearms is mandatory in domestic violence injunction cases." #zimmerman

George #Zimmerman Should NOT be allowed to own a gun. Is that too much to ask?

Actually quite clear what he’s capable of RT @JuddLegum: Shellie Zimmerman 911 call: “I don’t know what he’s capable of.”

Apparently #GeorgeZimmerman thinks stand your ground literally means just standing on any ground pointing guns at people.

They should sentence George Zimmerman to read all the George Zimmerman jokes on Twitter.
