Several news sources have labeled George Zimmerman a “self-appointed” Neighborhood Watch block captain. Guess what? That’s not true.
One of the other residents of the gated community is on record stating that is false. Frank Taafe, a “neighbor of George Zimmerman and fellow neighborhood watch captain” told NBC News that “Zimmerman was appointed as a watch captain, despite reports that he appointed himself to the post.” I’d think Zimmerman’s co-captain would know best, wouldn’t you?
