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.

Amazing how you dumb asses keep your head in the sand about this killer zimmershit. Arrested for violence four times and the light bulb still isn't going off for you? Can't wait for this cowardly failure to go to jail and get his grand welcome from the "thugs." It will be another OJ celebration all over again.

@El Abogado. You do know you cant hide behind the first Ammendment? Australia has and does prosecute online hate speech. In any case, other commentators here restrict themselves to issues. They dont call people "black pigs". In Western Civilization (I dont know what hole you are from) we disagree on issues without calling each other animals. Watch your language. I'll be watching you.

OMG- RACISIM? I could have sworn there was no more of this! Must be an isolated case! Surely if we can just get this ONE Incident cleared up then we can go back to what we were doing! Maybe Eric Holder can hold Sanford's feet to the fire after he is finished with Jacksonvilles Police Department? Obama-maybe he can spare a few minutes in between campaign stops? I'm guessing Obama will get his Black Panthers to take a gander at this situation.

Continued.... And instead of facing the facts it's up to you to make choices for change in regards to you and your families. You toss out the "race card" as your defense. Which is no defense at all, but a feeble attempt to make whites feel guilty. And that's all it is. Believe me...with all the terrible black on white crimes I've read about in the past few yrs--even in the past few months...the black community needs to hang it's head in shame! You don't see whites out there with their favorite "celebrity" pastors setting fires of hatred and threats when they've had to endure one of their people innocently & brutally murdered! They take the civil approach. So, take a lesson folks. The vast majority of us white folks do not have to wear the mantel of shame anymore. Buck up, my brothers 'n sisters of color and get YOUR OWN LIVES in order!!

@Peter P...please tell me when it was decided that if you have tats your a bad person, or is that just your ridiculous thinking? And is a grill a weapon? No, it is a form of fashion that plenty of people these days wear. Does it mean your a bad person if you wear one? HELL NO! And tell me, what exactly do you know about Trayvon's attitude to say it's bad..did you know him personally? What exactly was so bad in his past that makes him deserve to be killed? I'm just wondering did you ask yourself these questions and have good answers before you went posting that completely ridiculous comment? From the looks of it, i'm guessing in your mind your saying no..but i'm sure you'll come back with some "facts" of yours that won't even be the slightest bit true.
