Former co-worker: Zimmerman lost security guard job after he ‘snapped’

By David Edwards

The neighborhood watchman who in February shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was once fired from his job as a security guard for “being too aggressive,” according to a new report.

An unnamed former co-worker told the New York Daily News that George Zimmerman was paid under-the-table for providing security for illegal house parties between 2001 and 2005, but was let go because his anger issues “became a liability.”

“Usually he was just a cool guy,” the former co-worker explained. “He liked to drink and hang with the women like the rest of us. … But it was like Jekyll and Hyde. When the dude snapped, he snapped.”

“He had a temper and he became a liability,” he recalled. “One time this woman was acting a little out of control. She was drunk. George lost his cool and totally overreacted. … 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.”

1. This can be easily verified or discredited if true

Evidently being in public didn't act as a deterrent if this story is true.

8. With all of the dirt they've tried to dig up on Trayvon

it sure seems George is the only on with a violent, criminal past.

Paid under the table for four years? I'm sure he paid taxes on those earnings. Right? Let's go for tax evasion as well.

9. This fits in with a google search of his email

He does or had an email address of GMZBusiness@Hotmail.com

This comes up when you search using that email address

14. Yeah, and to keep calling him neighborhood watch captain is completely false.

 

In his own mind he was a neighborhood watch captain, in reality he was a self deluded wannabe, with a concealed weapon.

22. I can't believe they still so casually repeat that bullshit like it was fact.

It was established as bullshit early on, watch groups have spoken up explaining he is not one of theirs.
But they keep just casually describing him that way.

17. I don't know why this guy is not locked up yet

 

His history shows a pattern of lack of self-control. He cannot control his temper and freaked out over a hoodie.

21. I have been told that a nearly sexual obsession with firearms is normal and such folks

are law abiding bedrock citizens.

We have an entire group here at DU to explain it to you.
