*Lake Mary, Fla., police chief Steve Bracknell has distanced himself from comments he made in a response to an email from a town resident who was upset that George Zimmerman has not been charged with any crimes following an altercation Monday with his estranged wife and her father. In a Sept. 10 response to Lake Mary resident Santiago Rodriguez’s strongly-worded emails, which called Zimmerman “a ticking time bomb… [and] a Sandy Hook [or] Aurora waiting to happen,” Bracknell initially replied “I agree.” On Thursday, WTSP reported that the chief walked back his comments about Zimmerman. “Chief Bracknell distanced himself saying he was ‘referring to the fact that [Zimmerman] seems to be involved in incidents’ involving firearms,” the station reported. In a 911 call placed Monday, Zimmerman’s wife, Shellie, can be heard telling the operator that her estranged husband smashed an iPad and punched her father in the nose. Neither Shellie Zimmerman nor her father have pressed charges over the incident. “Florida law does not permit us to make an arrest [if no charges are brought],” Bracknell wrote. “No victim, no crime.” View the Rodriguez’s emails to Chief Bracknell below.
