So George Zimmerman's girlfriend wants to get back together with him and pretend she never called the cops last month? I guess she also wants us to forget about his arsenal of weapons and the panic in her voice, too.


In a court document obtained by CNN Monday, Samantha Scheibe says she wants a no-contact provision against Zimmerman lifted so the couple can "talk and be together."

"I am not afraid of George in any manner and I want to be with him," she says.

Zimmerman was arrested on November 18 at Scheibe's Apopka, Florida, home after the two had a heated fight. According to a police report about the incident, Scheibe said that after an argument, Zimmerman broke a table with a shotgun and then pointed it at her "for a minute."

But in a signed affidavit filed by Zimmerman's attorney, Jayne Weintraub, Scheibe says Zimmerman "never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner" and claims police misinterpreted her.

Sadly, this isn't unusual behavior for people caught in a relationship rooted in violent interaction. Victims get afraid, they recant, they convince themselves everything will be just fine if only they toe the line and do exactly what their abusers want.

Until the next time, and the time after that.

There is something weird going on here. When Zimmerman appeared in court after his arrest, he cried poverty and got a public defender. That didn't last long. One week later he had a private attorney defending him even though he claimed to be $2.5 million in debt with $200 in the bank.

Who is bankrolling George this time? Who convinced Samantha Schiebe it was really all her fault and she wants to forget the whole thing happened so she can cuddle up to a killer and his guns? After all, you did see the affidavit was supplied by Zimmerman's
attorney and not Scheibe.

Watch this space.
