WATCH: George Zimmerman's Girlfriend Reveals Disturbing New Details in Police Video | Mother Jones

During one such episode she claimed that Zimmerman—who was jealous that she had been texting her former boyfriend—choked her so violently that it bruised her throat. When asked her why she hadn’t called the police then, Scheibe replied, “Because I feel like he always gets off.” These words turned out to be prescient: Last month, after Scheibe recanted her allegations, prosecutors dropped the domestic violence and assault charges against Zimmerman.

George Zimmerman: Prelude to a shooting | Reuters

A pit bull named Big Boi began menacing George and Shellie Zimmerman in the fall of 2009.

The first time the dog ran free and cornered Shellie in their gated community in Sanford, Florida, George called the owner to complain. The second time, Big Boi frightened his mother-in-law’s dog. Zimmerman called Seminole County Animal Services and bought pepper spray. The third time he saw the dog on the loose, he called again. An officer came to the house, county records show.

"Don’t use pepper spray," he told the Zimmermans, according to a friend. "It’ll take two or three seconds to take effect, but a quarter second for the dog to jump you," he said.

"Get a gun."
