George Zimmerman MySpace Page Reveals Legal Problems, Possible Racism

by at . Comments

An old, long-unused MySpace page belonging to George Zimmerman contains apparently racist comments and casts light on his history of legal problems.

Zimmerman, who faces second-degree murder charges for killing Trayvon Martin, makes disparaging comments about Mexicans on the 2005-dated page.

He also referred triumphantly to his escape from legal troubles stemming from his confrontation with law enforcement officers, among other matters.

The page, which was confirmed as authentic Wednesday by Zimmerman’s attorney Mark O’Mara, also mentions a 7-year-old domestic violence incident.

Zimmerman, 28, gained national notoriety when he shot and killed Martin, 17, in Sanford, Florida, on February 26. He was not charged at the time.

The case has sparked racial tensions around the U.S., as Martin, who was unarmed, was black. Zimmerman has a white father and Hispanic mother.

Martin’s family and supporters claim he was a victim of racial profiling, while the former neighborhood watch volunteer claims he acted in self-defense.

On the old MySpace page, called “onlytobeakingagain,” Zimmerman uses the name “Joe G” and discusses leaving his hometown of Manassas, Va.

He muses on how much he misses his friends, then vveers into a slang-filled rant, with many words misspelled, about Mexicans who lived in the area.

Zimmerman writes:

“I don’t miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the street, soft (expletive) wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) don’t make you a man in my book.”

“Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!” he adds, providing no details about these incidents.

This, of course, has little, if anything, to do with the facts of the Martin case, but it does offer an interesting window into the mind of the defendant.

Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump said Wednesday that be believes prosecutors could use Zimmerman’s MySpace comments against him.

“It’s not just speculation and innuendo. He has a history and a habit of profiling people,” he said. “He thinks certain things about certain racial groups.”

George Zimmerman Free on Bail

A statement posted on a Zimmerman defense site run by O’Mara concedes that the comments “will cast Mr. Zimmerman in a less-than-favorable light."

O'Mara even concedes it could be used as evidence in the case. His statement says there will be no comment on the MySpace statements for that reason.

The second post mentions a legal battle with an “ex-hoe,” likely a reference to a 2005 incident in which a girlfriend accused Zimmerman of attacking her.

He was not charged in that case, and on the blog post, Zimmerman writes that the woman “tried her hardest, but the judge saw through it!”

Zimmerman’s wife testified at his bail hearing in April. during which he apologized to Trayvon Martin's family, that her husband told her he was actually defending himself in that incident, not the other way around.

A recent photo of Zimmerman's bloody head may bolster his claim that he acted in self-defense during the Martin incident, which he maintains.

@Tiffany I beg to differ. This case is infused with with racism! Why else did it come to the forefront of national news and remain there all these many weeks? So many black on white crimes have occurred since then. With many? The aggressors yelled, "Justice for Trayvon!" afterwards. Only a dumba** would fail to see there's a deep racial divide and this particular case has only emphasized that fact.

He should be put under the jail, he killed that kid, then lied to make himself look like the good guy. He's a cold blooded killer and should be put behind bars for the rest of his life. If he didn't kill that kid, it would have been someone else and if set free he will kill again. He is Trash...

Polls are showing that more and more people feel this was self defense. This boy was no child. He made a terrible mistake using his fists in a gun fight. He was suspicious. If he was was white and walking down my street and I didn't know him he would be suspicious to me. This is the 21st century. Attitude and boldness can cause problems.

It's amazing the sheer vitriol that can spew from the fingertips of the average citizen. All this hate and judgement toward a case involving a dead teenager. One who can't defend himself and only his his short life history of a non violent record to speak for him, as opposed to Zimmerman, who despite having a father with pull in the legal system, still managed to accrue a few arrests and charges. In any case, I find it hilarious (besides the obvious depressing side of it) that many of the people saying horrible things about this child and Black people in general will be the same people commenting on posts about Diversity Initiatives or Affirmative Action about how there is no racism or inequality and every one has an equal footing! Thank you for disproving that myth in advance!

I'm wondering why we never heard about the two black teenagers around 16 or 17 years old who threw gasoline on a much younger white boy of around 12 and then threw matches on him? It happened around the same time as the Zimmerman case only in another state, Kansas or Ohio I believe.
