According to a report from ThinkProgress, the police chief of George Zimmerman’s Florida town responded to a series of emails sent to the Lake Mary police department website by agreeing with the email sender’s statement that Zimmerman is a “ticking time bomb” and “another Aurora, Sandy Hook waiting to happen.”

According to documents provided by ThinkProgress, after defending police conduct during the Monday incident involving Zimmerman and his estranged wife, Shellie, Police Chief Steve Bracknell responded to Santiago Rodriguez’s email by stating: ”Your reference to Sandy Hook ……. I agree.”

In a follow-up email, Blacknell wrote that, “again, on a personal note,” he agreed with Santiago’s comments calling Zimmerman a “ticking time bomb.”

In a comment on the email, Blacknell said he he did not really agree with Santiago’s statement regarding Sandy Hook and was “referring to the fact that [Zimmerman] seems to be involved in incidents” involving firearms.
