Video: Police chief agrees Zimmerman is 'Sandy Hook...waiting to happen'

George Zimmerman is questioned by police after his estranged wife called 911 on Monday, September 9 2013.

 

St. Petersburg, FL - Lake Mary Police did not charge George Zimmerman following a confrontation with his estranged wife and father-in-law.

In a 911 call placed on Monday, Shellie Zimmerman can be heard telling the operator that George Zimmerman smashed an iPad and punched her father in the nose.

Lake Mary resident Santiago Rodriguez, upset that police failed to file charges, fired off a strongly worded email - criticizing the department and Zimmerman.

Rodriguez calls Zimmerman a "ticking time bomb" and says he's another "Sandy Hook" waiting to happen... apparently comparing him to someone capable of a mass shooting.

In response to the email dated Sept 10th, 2013, Chief Steve Bracknell said "Your reference to Sandy Hook... I agree."

The emails were published on the website, thinkprogress.org.

When contacted by the site for comment on his initial agreeance, Chief Bracknell distanced himself saying he was "referring to the fact that [Zimmerman] seems to be involved in incidents" involving firearms.

10 News reached out Thursday to the Lake Mary Police Department in an effort to get comment from the police chief about the email, but they did not returned our calls for comment.
