    Michael Sandford stopped calling his mother last May. He was in a foreign country, unemployed and living out of a car, but he had a plan. He had learned how to shoot a gun. He wanted to kill Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The autistic 20-year-old British man set out from California at about the same time his mother, Lynne, reported him as missing. In June, Sandford showed up at a Trump rally in Las Vegas. As the candidate spoke before a raucous crowd, the Briton moved close to the stage. He noticed a holstered gun strapped to a policeman's...

  • Judge sentences George Zimmerman shooter to 20 years in prison

    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. The man convicted of trying to kill George Zimmerman was sentenced to 20 years in prison by a judge Monday, despite arguments from his mother and wife that his trial was unfair. Lisa Apperson, Matthew Apperson's wife, complained that the media painted her husband as a monster. She also accused many witnesses of lying during her husband's trial, saying it was "disturbing" to see the "amount of perjury." Zimmerman told the court that jurors would see a different picture of Matthew Apperson, "if you were to ask his neighbors, if you were to ask the pool man."...

  • Mark Sanford Is More Vulnerable Than Ever

    U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford – who was running unopposed for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district (following a hard-fought 2013 special election win) – saw an abnormally-high percentage of people oppose him via write-in votes. Specifically, 6.59 percent of the first district electorate wrote in the name of someone other than Sanford on their ballot. That total dwarfed the write-in percentages put up against other unopposed GOP candidates at the statewide level – including treasurer Curtis Loftis (1.25 percent) and adjutant general Bob Livingston (1.03 percent).

    As much of the political world shifts its attention towards the South Carolina primary, MSNBCs Steve Kornacki checked in this morning with Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), the states former governor. Sanford noted he’d heard from a lot of locals that supporting Donald Trump would help send a message to Washington. The Trump candidacy, the congressman added, has tapped into Republicans frustrations. Sanford’s troubles were understandable. There were plenty of Republicans who effectively, if not literally, ruled out Trump as a possibility in 2015, when they still assumed the New York developer’s support would collapse. But many of those same GOP...

    DELTONA -- Attention nationwide has been turned to immigration policies after a man who had previously been deported five times, was charged with murdering a young woman in San Francisco, a so-called "immigration sanctuary city." Now, leaders in two local cities in Central Florida said they have been mislabeled as immigration sanctuaries, which in turn is worrying residents. "We're kind of shocked that we would be placed on the list. We had no idea we were on that list," said Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett. "We received several phone calls Tuesday from residents. They were concerned," said Lee Lopez, the spokesperson...

    Acquiring any object for our museum involves rigorous consultation with a team of museum historians and curators. Any items connected to the Trayvon Martin case – should they even become available – would have to go through that lengthy process." Curators can't plan for specific evidence from the case to be included yet because it was all transported to the FBI for the U.S. Department of Justice's investigation into whether Zimmerman violated Trayvon's civil rights. "Trayvon will probably be a bigger history maker than the men before him, because President Obama addressed the situation," said Francis Oliver, curator of the...

"The most important reason why we're here, we want a system that treats us equally," marcher Estefania Galvis said. The group's six-day walk from Jacksonville to Sanford...

    SANFORD – Four of the five Sanford police officers most closely involved in the Trayvon Martin homicide investigation are no longer working the same job. Chris Serino, the lead detective, transferred voluntarily to road patrol in July. It was not a demotion and he took no pay cut, according to an agency spokesman. Serino took the stand Monday. His boss, Sgt. Randy Smith, was promoted to lieutenant two months after the shooting and retired in January. Capt. Robert O'Connor, who oversaw this and other major crime investigations, resigned in February and now works as an investigator with the State Attorney's...

    This account was found on a site devoted to survival in times when societal order has broken down.  It offers some interesting background to the Martin/Zimmerman confrontation.   Response to the Zimmerman trial verdict was mixed at the site.   This was penned by "Mac":  I know the area where Zimmerman was forced to kill to survive. I walked away from a very lucrative service contract in Sanford, Florida just two weeks before the incident happened because of the people that live there. One of the properties I was assigned work on was just around the corner from where it...
