There’s a September 25, 2011 article from The Sanford Herald about the crime wave in Sanford Florida (the town where George Zimmerman lived):
Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee confirmed that crime is up as the economy continues to sputter. From April through June, more than 300 burglaries and 400 thefts have been reported in the city.
“We’ve got a significant problem with burglaries and thefts,” Lee stated.
And no one is immune, he said, adding that he himself has been a victim of crime.
Sanford Police Sgt. David Morgenstern gave the following advice:
So you see, George Zimmerman was not some nut imagining a crime problem that didn’t exist. Rather, he was following the advice of Sanford’s police department to call whenever you see something that doesn’t look right.
The public needs to call us if they see anything suspicious. When you see something that doesn’t look right, call us out there.
