George Zimmerman is a ticking time bomb, capable of a massacre on the same scale as the Sandy Hook and Aurora theater shootings.

So says a citizen in an email to Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell, Think Progress reports. Bracknell, who oversees the town where Zimmerman lives, agreed in a response email to Santiago Rodriguez.

"George is a ticking time bomb its [sic] becoming obvious ... Zimmerman is a Sandy Hook, Aurora waiting to happen," Rodriguez wrote in the Sept. 10 email.

"Your reference to Sandy Hook................ I agree," Bracknell responded.

Bracknell reportedly confirmed the authenticity of the emails but distanced himself from the comments.
