When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

George Zimmerman, the notorious Florida defendant acquitted for shooting dead 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, was arrested Friday for assault and domestic violence. It’s at least the fourth time Zimmerman has been accused of violence since the Martin case ended in 2012.

Just this past September, a driver reported that Zimmerman threatened to kill him during a road rage incident, pulling up alongside him and allegedly saying, “Do you know who I am? I will fucking kill you.”

In November 2013, Zimmerman was arrested after his girlfriend Samantha Schiebe called 911 reporting that he pointed a shotgun at her and barricaded himself inside. Deputies moved furniture he had put up against the door to get to him. At the time of his arrest Zimmerman had five guns and 100 rounds of ammunition. But he got his guns back after Schiebe asked that prosecutors drop the charges.

Two months earlier, Zimmerman’s estranged wife also called 911 to report that Zimmerman was threatening her and her family.

In the most recent incident, Zimmerman was booked late Friday night on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon, according to News 13 Orlando.

George Zimmerman has committed more crimes than Trayvon Martin yet Trayvon is considered a thug. It's only a matter of time before he kills someone else. Thanks Florida for unleashing this sociopath into the world.
