More details about George Zimmerman paint worst picture
As the Sanford, Florida Police department continue their "investigation" into the murder of 17-year old Trayvon Martin, more details are starting to leak about his shooter George Zimmerman.
Initial reports around the story only stated that he was a 28-year old criminal justice major and member of the Neighborhood Watch. Now, neighbors are coming forward saying that Zimmerman, who was arrested in 2005 for assaulting a police officer, has a history of bad behavior.
The Huffington Post reports:
At an emergency homeowner’s association meeting on March 1, “one man was escorted out because he openly expressed his frustration because he had previously contacted the Sanford Police Department about Zimmerman approaching him and even coming to his home,” the resident wrote in an email to HuffPost. “It was also made known that there had been several complaints about George Zimmerman and his tactics" in his neighborhood watch captain role.
An unnamed member of the homeowner's association says they never heard any complaints about Zimmerman.
Local blog LezGetReal says that anonymous neighbors also complained of Zimmerman bringing his gun to Neighborhood Watch meetings and calling the rest of the members “drunks, trouble-makers and lunatics”.
