AUDIO: Witness Says George Zimmerman Repeatedly Bullied Him At Work, Targeted Him With Racist Jokes

6:44 pm - 05/21/2012
Among the evidence in the Trayvon Martin case released by the Florida state prosecutor yesterday was a 15-minute interview with a former work colleague of George Zimmerman. The man, who is not identified by name, says that Zimmerman relentlessly bullied him at work.
Zimmerman, according to the witness, targeted him because he was Middle Eastern. He repeatedly called the man a “fucking moron” and mocked him using the voice of “Achmed the terrorist.” Zimmerman’s stories about the man would involve “bombing,” “I’ll kill your family” and other “jokes” about “Middle Eastern stuff.” According to the man, this went on “for days and days.”

After a few months, Zimmerman was terminated. According to the witness, “he was fired for calling HR hotline so many times…he would complain about each and every manager and employee.”

Zimmerman is currently being investigated by the FBI, who reportedly may charge him with a hate crime.

Why is this a protected post?

If the OP's own journal is f-locked, then any comm entries they post will be too. This is the case for me; I have to go back to the entry once it's posted and edit it to make it public.

We know this guy is racist, so I want (well, want is... kind of not the right word) more stories like this to come out. There have been too many disparaging/stupid ones about Trayvon and not enough about Zimmerman. Apparently murdering an unarmed kid wasn't enough so fucking bring on the rest of his past.

I absolutely could not agree more with all of this. Less trashing of an innocent child, more backstory to this racist POS.
dumpweeds 22nd-May-2012 05:13 am (UTC)
you guys, stop calling him names :\

for real though, racist piece of shit. I hope his punishment is life in prison and his prison floor is filled with legos and he isn't allowed shoes ever.

Yeah, you might have tracked it down by now, but this post was a disaster of epic proportions: http://ontd-political.livejournal.com/9671297.html#comments

Oh god, I read all of this and I hate myself for doing so.

I'm still reading this. I'm amazed that so many users managed to stay patient through that disaster. God knows I wouldn't have been able to.

Thanks so much for that link. I haven't been online much lately and missed that discussion. It certainly was epic, and now I understand the comments in THIS thread!

Hopefully this will help justify the FBI hate crimes investigation.

I hope that there is enough for the DoJ to charge him. I doubt he'll be convicted in the state with that damn law to stand behind.
lollycunt 22nd-May-2012 02:13 pm (UTC)
Agreed. I'm the first person to be skeptical and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but there's just overwhelming evidence that he is a racist and his motives for instigating the confrontation with Martin were based in racism.
moonshaz 22nd-May-2012 05:04 pm (UTC)
This, sfm!
schmutzigs 22nd-May-2012 10:30 am (UTC)
not at all surprised. but i do fear his attorney's are going to turn this around and play the victim card. as they have been doing..
cpsings4him 22nd-May-2012 11:52 am (UTC)
I am SHOCKED! Shocked, I tell you.

Only, you know, not.
callmepatsy 22nd-May-2012 01:40 pm (UTC)
What?! The guy who shot an unarmed kid for being black has a history of racism? I am shocked by this information! Shocked, I tell you!
macabremeltdown 22nd-May-2012 02:17 pm (UTC)
So shocking. Except it isn't.
oceandezignz 22nd-May-2012 02:55 pm (UTC)
Oh my glob this is like soooo shocking! Rather like being given decaf instead of espresso. Meh.

How much more evidence will there be that says Zimmerman is a typical right-wing racist piece of shit before people concede that he's a racist?
aviv_b 22nd-May-2012 07:50 pm (UTC)
Golly, I bet he was fun to work with. And by fun I mean someone you'd run the other way to avoid interacting with.
kikkyo 22nd-May-2012 10:04 pm (UTC)
This really doesn't surprise me much. Would hate to work with someone like that though.
