Witness says George Zimmerman is a Racist

According to Witness #9, George Zimmerman is not only a racist, but a child molester as well. Various reports suggest that this unnamed witness is a cousin. Zimmerman, who shot and killed Trayvon Martin, already has some … credibility issues after lying about his finances during a bond hearing. According to MSNBC,  this information comes from audiotaped recordings between investigators and Witness #9.

“Growing up, (Zimmerman) and his family always made statements that they didn’t like black people if they don’t act like white people,” the witness, who would be about 27 now, told investigators in the taped conversation. “They like black people if they act white. Other than that, they talked a lot of bad things about black people.”

Witness #9 couldn’t pinpoint a specific incident when asked. In a separate interview with investigators, the witness claims that Zimmerman molested his cousin, who is 2 years younger than him, from when she was 8 to 18 years old.

“The earliest incident she said she could remember took place when she was about 6 years old while she was staying with the Zimmerman family in Virginia while her mother and father moved to Orlando, Fla., from Louisiana. She alleges that Zimmerman groped her under the blanket, the first in a series of traumatic incidents that she says continued at family get-togethers until she was about 16.”

Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara unsuccessfully tried to block release of the audio tapes on the grounds that the information they contained were irrelevant to the case. According to the statement on Zimmerman’s website:

The defense moved to block the public release of Witness #9’s statement in a motion filed on June 18, 2012 contending “The content of this statement is not relevant to the issues of this case, and it would not be admissible in the State’s case in chief.” The motion further contends that this irrelevant statement should be withheld from public dissemination because of the substantial risk that public disclosure will lead to widespread hostile publicity which would substantially impair the Defendant’s fair trial rights, and would pose a serious threat to the administration of justice.

It is unclear how or if the prosecution intends to use this information. In addition, O’Mara sought to block release of audio of Zimmerman’s jailhouse phone calls. Currently, Zimmerman is awaiting trial on 2nd degree murder charges at a safehouse in an undisclosed location. Aside from these developments, one of Zimmerman’s supporters  is going door to door collecting signatures to protest against a permanent memorial to Trayvon in the neighborhood.

  1. “one of Zimmerman’s supporters is going door to door collecting signatures to protest against a permanent memorial to Trayvon in the neighborhood.” The hate, it burns from these people. Isn’t it enough that he killed him? No, now they have to deny him a memorial.

  2. George Zimmerman and his family are some sordid pieces of bull excrement. They seem to have a sense of entitlement. George Zimmerman wants the judge to recuse himself because the judge was brutally honest with him when he granted him bail the second time. He’s lucky he got bail after he and his wife lied about their finances to get a low bail amount the first time. I have a bone to pick with the Zimmermans if what Witness #9 reports about them only liking black people if they act white is true. How does one “act” white, or for that matter, how does one “act” black, or “Hispanic,” “Muslim,” etc.? This type of ignorance is a direct result of stereotyping. This leads me to believe that when George Zimmerman saw Trayvon Martin walking through “his” neighborhood on that February night wearing a hoodie, he followed him because he thought Trayvon was automatically up to no good simply because he was a young black male wearing a hoodie. I know what it feels like to be stereotyped on an almost constant basis. It doesn’t feel good having people not see you, the person, but looking past you at the stereotype. A couple years ago, my daughter and I were walking through a local WalMart store. I was carrying a Prada handbag on that particular day. This elderly white couple noticed my handbag, and I overheard the man tell his wife that he bet I was on food stamps, and that I had probably spent my rent money on the bag. He didn’t see my daughter and I as what we really were: two gainfully employed college graduates. He naturally assumed that we were on welfare because of the handbag I was carrying. I shared this little story to illustrate how some people in our society draw erroneous conclusions about others quite frequently. Romney did the same thing when he was at a fundraiser in Montana last week. He let it be known that he thought the NAACP attendees were looking for a handout. this was another erroneous conclusion reached as the result of stereotyping a group of individuals. If
    stereotyping played a role in George Zimmerman killing Trayvon Martin, I want it to be known because no one in this country should lose his/her life because of it.

  3. In fact, when forced to “dress for success” on a very thin dime, I did a lot of business with thrifts and consignments. Some very expensive items wind up there in good condition, and if you know how to pick classics, fix minor defects, and look for quality, you can look a great deal better off than you are. Under these circumstances, someone on food stamps who is out shopping their resumé and going to interviews might indeed appear expensively dressed without having “spent the rent money”, because, as we know, employers, especially of professionals, will not give you a job if they think you actually need one.

  4. Note, too, that women who are in the smaller size ranges, as I was even through my early fifties, can get very good deals this way – from the closets of other women who gained too much weight.

  5. It was reported at Loonwatch that George Zimmerman had repeatedly harassed an Arab co-worker, and it may well be he saw himself on a special mission to “police” “inferiors”. The report of his cousin and the scam he ran about his bail point to a sociopath. At the same time, though there are certain circumstances under which this evidence could be admitted in court, releasing this stuff to the public at this time is ethically dicey, and is only partly justified by the fact that Zimmerman’s side has been doing worse.

  6. Zimmerman doesn’t look like a pale face to me! I am sure if he was walking in my neighborhood he would get the same treatment he dished out to the little Martin boy. Bet if he showed up at a Teabagger rally they sure would not consider him one of them. All I have to say ONE RACE-HUMAN

  7. You’re right in line with science and scientific definitions too. Homo Sapiens Neanderthal would be a different race… but although they interbred with us (and we carry some of their genes), they haven’t existed in tens of thousands of years.

  8. Zimmerman reminds me of a pretty common character around here… the cop wannabe. You’ll see them pretty often if you know where to look.

    I’ve been thinking back, and I don’t think I remember a one who wasn’t racist and a bigot. (Some were of the “I have black friends!” type.)

  9. Quite a few times, I’ve seen cases where one side of the family prided themselves on being “ril White” and “ril uhMericun” where the other wasn’t. In a case like that, every time the kid does something that the “superior” side of the family doesn’t approve of, they tell the kid he’s a “bad seed” because of the “admixture”. Most such kids grow up to be howling bigots, projecting their own “impurity” into “others” and persecuting them for it. I suspect that’s what we’re looking at here.
