Looks like karma has finally caught up to George Zimmerman. WFTV in Florida is reporting that he was just shot in the face during a road rage incident.

An NYPD sergeant was shot in the head and chest and critically wounded in Queens on Saturday.
The anti-crime officer worked out of the 105th Precinct in Queens Village and was on duty when he was hit at around 6:15 p.m. It was not clear whether he was in uniform – anti-crime officers often do plainclothes patrols.
A suspect was holed up in a nearby building at 212th Street and 104th Avenue. Police sent hostage negotiaters to try to talk him out – but it was not clear if he actually was holding people against their will.
The cop was rushed to Jamaica Hospital in a radio car.
The officer was the fifth New York City cop shot in the last five months.
If there was ever a time that the People in communities across the U.S. needed to come together, it’s now. While images and videos of the Baltimore protesters’ exemplary model of unity continue to pour in by the hour, it is unfortunate that that spirit of solidarity has not spread throughout the rest of the country and penetrated the hearts of others. I truly wonder what the motive could have possibly been to lead these men to opening fire on a group of 300 people that were just leaving a funeral service. Many of whom were with their loved ones and simply wanted to pay respects to someone who had passed. Little did some of them know, they would have to start making plans to attend two more. It’s even more saddening to hear that one of the men that died in this senseless act of violence was killed in front of his son. For what? When will this vicious cycle end? Let this be a reminder that although the solidarity shown in places like Ferguson and Baltimore is a step in the right direction, it is something that must not be fleeting. We have to be as unrelenting in our struggle for unity amongst the People as the opposing forces are in their efforts to keep us divided.
I offer my condolences to all those affected by this tragedy.
Six people were shot — two fatally — Monday night during a drive-by shooting outside a Brooklyn church where funeral services were being held, police sources and witnesses said.
More than 300 people were leaving the service at Emmanuel Church of God on Flatbush Ave. near Foster Ave. at about 8:30 p.m. when a gunman fired up to 15 shots into the crowd from a silver SUV.
“It sounded like a war … boom, boom, boom,” said witness Carlo Stamand, 60, who owns the nearby Cafe Creole restaurant. “I ran. I went inside my business. After that, the police came.
Witness Angela Diggs, 50, was worshiping at another church nearby when the congregants’ prayers were drowned out by gunfire.
“We didn’t come out,” she said. “We just continued praying for whatever was happening out there. Praying that nobody died.”
Diggs’ prayers weren’t answered.
Shot in the back like an animal. Another black man murdered in cold blood by the police. The KKK is alive and well.

WASHINGTON — A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting in the back and killing an apparently unarmed black man while the man ran away.
The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, said he had feared for his life because the man had taken his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man, Walter L. Scott, 50, fled. The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.
If you read the anti-cop comments on youtube you can get a strong sense that police have become the most hated group in these times. They are the ultimate pawns of the government. No update on what happened with the suspect as of yet.

Suge Knight speaks on his recent shooting whereas he was hit six times by an unknown assailant at Club 1 Oak in Los Angeles.
You would think club security in Los Angeles by this time would know how to keep automatic weapons out of high profile venues such as this. Chris Brown better be very careful since he is very proud of his gang ties and eventually they will catch up to him. Lastly, Suge Knight got shot and walked out on his own, fuck is this guy made of?
Shots rang out at 1OAK nightclub in West Hollywood at around 1:30 AM Sunday … and Suge Knight was shot twice and taken to the hospital by ambulance where he’s currently in surgery … eyewitnesses and Suge’s family tell TMZ.
A source close to Suge tells us … he was shot in the stomach and arm.
Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri’chard and Apple de Ap all tell TMZ … they were inside the pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard 4 shots ring out inside the club.
Suge walked out on his own power … a cop spotted him and walked the rap mogul to the police car where Suge sat. Suge was then put in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.
This is one bad ass Lady Cop. This is not totally raw because there is dramatic music and a presumably Chinese voice over but it is chilling nonetheless. Still can’t believe this dude went for the ‘ole throw the water bottle too hard on the floor trick’. Let’s just say I don’t seriously think he got up from those gun shots.
