Not surprisingly, the 28-year-old went on the site to spew his racist thoughts, back in 2005. Among his issues included disparaging feelings towards Mexicans. “I don’t miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of 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,” he wrote, under the name Joe G. “Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!”
Zimmerman also used the social networking site to brag about beating charges for attacking a member of law enforcement. “2 felonies dropped to 1 misdemeanor!!!!!!!!!!!! The man knows he was wrong but still got this hump, Thanks to everyone friends and fam, G baby you know your my rock!” Another post details an altercation involving an ex-girlfriend, for which he never faced charges. He accusing the woman of “trying her hardest, but the judge saw through it.”
O’Mara admitted that the page casts his client in a negative light, but given the years since the post, theorizing that his words won’t be damaging to his murder case.
On the contrary, Benjamin Crump, lawyer to the Martin family, says the page shoes Zimmerman’s true colors. “It’s not just speculation and innuendo. He has a history and a habit of profiling people. He thinks certain things about certain racial groups,” Crump said.
Zimmerman shot and killed Martin in late February, claiming self-defense. He is currently free on $150,000 bond.
