The night that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin wasn’t the first time that he used his self-imposed power to warrant deplorable actions. One of Zimmerman’s former co-workers, is speaking out about the hazing and racial bullying he received at the hands of the accused killer.

During his tenure at CarMax back in 2008, Zimmerman routinely antagonized his Arab-American co-worker, who complained to management. “The guy was so convincing when he was confronted by management to the point where I doubted my own self. I would not be surprised if he got away with it [Martin murder accusation],”  said the unidentified man. “He’s got, like you say, ‘A good poker face.’ Great poker face. That pretty much summarizes this guy’s personality. Great poker face.” 

In his one-page complaint the man, wrote that some of Zimmerman’s taunts included “impersonating me in a terrorist character,”  and calling him “stupid,” allegations of which  Zimmerman denied.

The man, asked to remain anonymous for fear that any association with the 28-year-old could be detrimental, but was very specific in his account of what transpired. “He wasn’t joking around. He was choosing his words. He was making fun of my accent, or pretending that I have a thick accent.”

Zimmerman was fired from CarMax shortly after the complaint, for unrelated reasons. He is set to appear at his bond hearing Friday (June 29), and may be released from custody until the start of his second-degree murder trial.
