Former co-worker: Zimmerman lost security guard job after he ‘snapped’
 Part of channel(s): Shooting of Trayvon Martin (current event)

The neighborhood watchman who in February shot 17-year-old Trayvon
Martin was once fired from his job as a security guard for “being too
aggressive,” according to a new report.
An unnamed former co-worker told the New York Daily News
that George Zimmerman was paid under-the-table for providing security
for illegal house parties between 2001 and 2005, but was let go because
his anger issues “became a liability.”
“Usually he was just a cool guy,” the former co-worker explained. “He
liked to drink and hang with the women like the rest of us. … But it
was like Jekyll and Hyde. When the dude snapped, he snapped.”
“He had a temper and he became a liability,” he recalled. “One
time this woman was acting a little out of control. She was drunk.
George lost his cool and totally overreacted. … It was weird, because he
was such a cool guy, but he got all nuts. He picked her up and threw
her. It was pure rage. She twisted her ankle. Everyone was flipping
out.”
In 2005, the same year that Zimmerman lost his security guard job, he was also arrested
for “resisting officer with violence” and “battery of law enforcement
officer,” both third-degree felonies. Those charges were dropped after
he agreed to enter an alcohol education program.
MSNBC reported
that his ex-fiancee, Veronica Zuazo, alleged domestic violence and
filed a motion for a restraining order in 2005. Zimmerman then filed for
a restraining order against Zuazo and both later dropped their motions.
Even with all this history, the former co-worker said he was shocked to hear the news that Zimmerman killed Martin.


“He definitely loved being in charge,” he said. “He loved the power. Still, I could never see him killing someone. Never.”

  • Treyvon's parents, lawyers and assorted apologists have said that whatever Treyvon did in the past has no bearing on what happened the night of the shooting. Shouldn't the same test be applied to Zimmerman?

    • @Myheavynuts ironic isnt it? people get all creeped out if cameras are recording their location but then they willingly have their phones update their facebook on every location they go and revel in it.

      oh dear cant let the big bad police know im in a dark alley but i'll tell every potential creep and stalker on my facebook about it.

  • I am curious as to whether or not there is any truth in this at all. It seems strange to me that the state would issue him a CCW after violently resisting arrest.

    But even if everything in here is true, and all the mudslinging about Trayvonne is true as well, it still brings none of us any closer to knowing what happened the night of February 26, which is the only day in either of their lives that has any relevance to this case.

    • @dirtbiker201 the person who fired him and actually owned the company may have been black too, shit me black people may have a brain and do things like be an aircraft carrier captain in the US Navy or a General in the army. So that means you are now saying people who are black and hold a senior position that they have earned through hard work deserve to also be insulted by knuckle dragers like you. In my books you are nothing but white trash and I am white so that's a double insult.

    • @pxr5 exactly, these two dipshits are worthy of zero national news. The powers that be in the U.S. love shoving this story down our throats so we will have race wars rather than get educated and look long and hard at the shit going on in washington or wallstreet; that's the criminals I would a thousand times rather be researching than these two dipshits in florida.

  • Yes it appears both Zimmerman and Martin had somewhat of a checkered past. But it doesn't alter the facts of what happened on that night in February. It appears Zimmerman was defending himself from getting beaten to a pulp, which you can do in states like Florida and Texas and many others.

    • @Nagold
      police stations cctv show no battered suspect. the stand your ground law must be argued in court. His father is a retired judge who has "helped" him out before. the 911 operator told him repeatedly to "stop" following. any two bit lawyer can eat this case, that is why the fix was in.

    • @thoth1 I suggest you look at the HD unedited version that was released. It clearly shows the injuries.
      Also listen to an unedited audio of the entire event.

    • @Nagold According to Martin's girlfriend who records prove was on the phone with Martin minutes before police arrived Martin said a man was following him in his car, got out of his car and continued to follow him. Then she heard a voice say "What are you doing here?" Then she heard a scuffle and then she heard what sounded like the phone dropping and then the line went dead.

      This directly contradicts Zimmerman's claim that he never confronted Trayvon. Zimmerman claimed that Trayvon at More..
