The recent arrest of George Zimmerman has flooded the headlines. The acquitted murder suspect was charged Monday with felony aggravated assault after threatening his girlfriend with a shotgun. Hosts of The Five are taking a much more aggressive approach to the latest charges on Zimmerman than they previously did for the Trayvon Martin case. Perhaps the majority of the hosts feel that threatening a white woman is something a little more serious than murdering a black teenager.
Bob Beckel said:
“This just underscores my point about – you allow a gun in the hands of a guy like this, who is psychotic obviously, in my mind it just proves to me once again that he shot and killed a poor teenage kid. And the guy should have been in jail for murder and not been allowed to go out there an terrorize this woman. […]
[People like Zimmerman] are much more dangerous than Trayvon Martin ever was.”
Greg Gutfeld stated that Zimmerman should no longer have access to guns, but also criticized the media for forcing people to take sides. “Either you’re for Trayvon Martin or you’re for George Zimmerman,” he said.
Somehow, Andrea Tantaros’ brain made an appearance on the show. She said that Zimmerman continuing to behave violently after all the prior controversy he was involved with the Trayvon Martin murder trial actually “points to a larger problem.”
In closing the segment, Eric Bolling added, “What he did yesterday doesn’t have any bearing on what he was accused of doing two years ago.”
Beckel chimed in, “Same person. Same mindset. Same idiot.”
