George Zimmerman Is A Serial Troublemaker

Updated on August 25, 2015

George Zimmerman

Trouble Man

George Zimmerman was introduced to the nation and world as the neighborhood watch leader who killed Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida in February of 2012. Martin was returning to his mother's home from a trip to a local store when he encountered Zimmerman who was following him in his truck. When Martin slipped out of Zimmerman's sight Zimmerman got out of his truck and attempted to follow Martin on foot. At some point the two came face to face where a struggle occurred which resulted in Zimmerman shooting Martin to death. Zimmerman was charged with murder, went to trial and was acquitted to the horror and amazement of thousands of Americans. Since that time he has been in and out of trouble which proves to many people that he is just a magnet for it.

Zimmerman In Court

A Troubled Past

Although George Zimmerman was introduced to the country in 2012 he was no stranger to trouble with police. As a young man he had several run-ins with police. In one incident he was charged with assaulting a police officer. He beat that charge but instead of counting his blessings he seemed to progress in his bad behavior. A former fiance accused him of domestic violence and obtained a restraining order against him. A witness at his trial for shooting Trayvon Martin who happened to be a cousin of Zimmerman's accused him of molesting her when they were children. That cousin also stated that Zimmerman liked to start disputes with people. That he was a bully of sorts. She also said he did not like black people. Whether the last allegation is true or not the fact remains that trouble seems to follow Zimmerman like a lost dog looking for a home.

George Zimmerman After His Confrontation With Trayvon Martin

Trouble Looking For Trouble

When George Zimmerman confronted Trayvon Martin he soon found out that he had bitten off more than he could chew. Martin left him bloodied and battered. Upon finding out he was outmatched Zimmerman obviously felt he had no other alternative but to shoot Martin and then claim Florida's version of self defense "stand your ground." Zimmerman is not a very tall man and is somewhat pudgy. He has no distinguishing characteristics that would be considered exceptional or attention grabbing. He undoubtedly suffers to some degree from low self esteem and attempts to compensate by being a "bad boy." But picking on teenagers and women does not make you a bad boy and picking fights with policemen is just stupid. But that is the essence of George Zimmerman.

Zimmerman's Weapons

This Dog Will Hunt

Since his trial and acquittal for killing Trayvon Martin George Zimmerman has been dogged by trouble. He has been stopped for everything from speeding to driving under the influence. He has been arrested for brandishing a gun and threatening a woman and her father. As recently as May of this year he was shot at in a road rage incident with another motorist. But Zimmerman has no one to blame but himself. His penchant for weapons and his willingness to flash them or use them make him a target for anyone and everyone. At one point a few years ago he was taking martial arts lessons no doubt in an effort to make himself more of a bad man to be feared. Any one with the attitude of George Zimmerman will find trouble because everything that they do attracts it. At the end of the day it is safe to say George Zimmerman will eventually find what he is looking for..........a pile of trouble too high to handle.

      I think that if George Zimmerman were black when he approached Trayvon Martin there would not have been a fight.

      Robert Downey Jr, Rachel Doezel, and John Griffin showed the world it is possible for a white person to change their appearance to black. Yet people are still dumb enough to send white cops and security after black person they think may be trouble.

      If I was in charge I would have all the white male cops go undercover as black. I think we would get much better results.

      Mike your comments have relevance. Although I don't agree with killing anyone except in self defense, (which in Zimmerman's case it was not--he murdered Trayvon Martin after initiating contact with him), I agree with your view of gangsta rap(pers) and the music they espouse.

      The whole trial was a joke and a horrible waste of everyone's time. The guy clearly looks more hispanic than white; not to mention that he even considers himself hispanic when he registers to vote.

      If anything should be gleamed from this whole story its that whites aren't the only race who dislike black people. As Micheal from Lost says "Koreans don't like black people". Maybe black leaders should make an effort at changing their public image rather than blame the rest of the world for their problems. Zimmerman should have killed Lil Wayne or some other utter pieces of human trash who are responsible for everyone thinking blacks are born criminals. Black parents need to make the ass-ignorant gangsta persona unpopular to their kids instead of letting them listen to these laughably ignorant rappers who will only serve to teach kids how to act as bullet magnets from police and concerned citizens.
