Zimmerman, the 28-year-old Sanford, Fla., neighborhood watch volunteer who shot the unarmed 17-year-old Martin to death, was fired from a job securing illegal house parties for “being too aggressive,” according to the New York Daily News, which quoted a former colleague of Zimmerman’s. According to the co-worker, Zimmerman worked for two agencies that provided security for the illegal house parties from 2001 to 2005.
“Usually he was just a cool guy,” said the former co-worker, who the newspaper didn't name.“But it was like Jekyll and Hyde. When dude snapped, he snapped.” The Daily News said Zimmerman earned $50 to $100 a night for the parties. He was fired for being too aggressive with patrons.
“He had a temper and he became a liability,” the newspaper quoted the former co-worker as saying.“One time this woman was acting a little out of control. She was drunk. George lost his cool and totally overreacted,” he said.“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.”
The neighborhood watch manual (it’s online) clearly states to only use your “eyes and ears” to never carry a gun and to never pursue a suspect

Thanks for the heads up on the manual. That explains why the community didn't want to defend a wrongful death lawsuit against them.

Zimmerman was previously arrested for domestic violence, resisting an officer without violence and resisting an officer with violence. He went to court ordered anger management classes to avoid a conviction for attacking his girlfriend. If Zimmerman had been locked up in jail for his previous felonies like he should have been, Martin would be alive today.

Hey, Spooko, since when did a supposed manual supersede the rights given by the second amendment?

I have interacted and instructed many neighborhood watch groups and they are as diverse as the country. Some of them have structure with meetings and discussions, some of them never meet and all information is shared via the phone. The only real thing these groups have the same is to have some type of function for National Night Out.

<quoted text>why did he get ut f his car and follow him then? to see he made it safely home? Zimmerman is a proven physically violent man.

you are right, there is no absolute proof of this, which is why the verdict was correct. still doen't mean Zimmerman didn't cause the situation and then like a coward, had to resort to his little gun to save himself...
Martin Ida proven violent thug teen. Also a proven thief and dope head. Doesn't prove Zim attacked Martin.

Martin was RIGHT HANDED. There were two small abrasions to Martin's LEFT HAND, pinky and ring finger, i.e. DEFENSIVE wounds, bubba.

Injuries to Zimmerman's face. "

Zimmerman said Martin punched him in the face, knocked him down, and then punched him 20 or 30 more times while Martin was allegedly on top of him on the ground.

This is NOT the face of a man who has been punched in the face, then immediately punched 20 to 30 more times, bubba

If Zimmerman was ever on his back on the ground, it wasnÂ’t in the clothers he was wearing when he killed Martin.

Zimmerman's court and arrest records are public information, bubba.

The lack of any convictions for Zimmerman's violent felonies and giving a violent man with a history of attacking women and cops a permit to carry a concealed weapon is something all Floridans should bow their heads in shame over.

Actually, no, I have mentored several neighborhood watch groups as well as neighborhood associations. Again, I would ask, since when does a supposed rule of a loosely associated group override somebody's second amendment rights?
As far as the directions given by the non sworn dispatcher, the first one told Zimmerman to keep Martin in sight and call back if he detected any suspicious activity. Only the second told him to not follow. Conflicting instructions, at best.
Don't make me laugh moron, what neighborhood have mentored - Chicago's Auburn Gresham neighborhood?

Zimmerman's lawyers fought to have "witness 9," claims that George Zimmerman and his entire family are racist suppressed from being presented at trial.

Like the public couldn't figure that out....

George Zimmerman's complains about "f-kng coons" in his 911 call minutes before he shot and killed the unarmed black teenager.

His brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr., treated his Twitter followers to a racist diatribe in which he described black people as threatening.

And Daddy Zimmerman writes a book claiming it's black people who are the real racists in this country.

Duh....

Not verified at all moron. You must have not read all reports, viewed photos, and watched trial. The FBI also said there was no proof of racial profiling. You lie and you cry. NOT GUILTY.

It ain't over til the fat lady sings....

"The U.S. Department of Justice, overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder, has ordered the Sanford, Florida police department to keep possession of all the evidence from George Zimmerman's second-degree murder trial - including the exonerated neighborhood watch volunteer's gun.

Sanford police confirmed on Thursday that the DOJ asked the agency not to return any pieces of evidence to their owners. Zimmerman was expected to get his firearm back by month's end.

The development is a sign that the criminal section of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division is seriously investigating Zimmerman to determine if federal civil rights charges should be filed....."

YES!!!!!!!
