Since the controversial not guilty verdict from the George Zimmerman trial in Florida just a few days ago, there’s been lots of discussion about race, profiling, stand your ground laws etc. but very little has been mentioned about the actual killer George Zimmerman. We know from the news and from the trial that Zimmerman wanted to be a police officer and that he studied criminal justice for a short time. We also know that he voluntarily started a Neighborhood Watch program in his gated community where Trayvon Martin happened to be visiting his father.
These are all descriptive facts about him but the real George Zimmerman is actually a sociopathic wannabe cop who may have committed the perfect murder. I’m convinced that Zimmerman was a sociopath because of his actions before, during and after the killing of young Trayvon. The textbook definition of a sociopath is a person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.
We know from the news coverage of the trial that in 2005, Zimmerman got into a fight with an ATF agent and was arrested and charged with “resisting officer with violence” and “battery of law enforcement officer,” both of which are third-degree felonies. Also in August 2005, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancee, Veronica Zuazo, filed a civil motion for a restraining order alleging domestic violence.
In 2008, Zimmerman applied to become a police officer in Prince George County but was rejected probably because of his prior arrest record and domestic abuse charges, but what these events really demonstrate is his history of confrontation and inability to control his anger. It’s obvious that Zimmerman was intent on becoming a police officer and probably became ever more obsessed with his desire upon being rejected just a few years earlier.
Some controversial and racist comments from Zimmerman’s 2005 MySpace page have recently emerged indicating that he was upset about his arrest and had animus towards Mexicans and his ex-fiancee whom he refers to as his “ex hoe”.
He speaks about what he doesn’t miss about his former home in Manassas,Virginia,
“I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft ass wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) dont make you a man in my book. Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!”
He bragged about not going to jail regarding a case with an ex saying,
“Im still free! The ex hoe tried her hardest, but the judge saw through it! Big Mike, reppin the Dverse security makin me look a million bucks, broke her down! Thanks to everyone for checkin up on me! Stay tuned for the A.T.F. charges……”
A few days later, he spoke on getting his felonies reduced.
“2 felonies dropped to 1 misdemeanor!!!!!!!!!!! The man knows he was wrong but still got this hump, Thanks to everyone friends and fam, G baby you know your my rock!”

Based on Zimmerman’s language and his boasting about being acquitted of the domestic abuse charges and having his felony assault charges against the officer reduced to a misdemeanor, he was not only elated that he was able to escape his charges but he seemed to gloat about his ability to evade justice. This is the same state of mind that he had when he approached an unsuspecting Trayvon Martin on a rainy night on February 26, 2012.
Zimmerman was familiar with Florida’s “Stand your ground” laws from his criminal justice studies and his amateur police work. He knew that he could not be portrayed as the aggressor because the aggressor cannot claim that they were standing their ground when they’re in pursuit of a potential criminal.
In listening to the 911 call he made, you can hear him paint a picture of Trayvon as looking suspicious, and peeping into neighbor’s windows and then eventually circling his car. These were all lies that he told so that he could establish an alibi and a justified reason for confronting him. Most importantly, he has a virtual witness in the 911 call operator to document his side of the story because he knows that no one can dispute his story. The way he describes Trayvon and his actions were designed to portray Trayvon as the aggressor.
Trayvon likely never saw Zimmerman until he confronted him on the way home. Based on Rachel Jeantel’s testimony, Trayvon was confronted by Zimmerman who abruptly asked him, “What are you doing here?” Jeantel also said that she heard Trayvon say, “Get off!” and then she heard a scuffle that sounded like they were on the ground and the phone went dead.
Her testimony clearly demonstrates that Zimmerman was the aggressor who approached Trayvon without introducing himself as Neighborhood Watch. He never introduced himself because he wanted a confrontation! Zimmerman knew in advance that he had a loaded gun and he knew that he needed a reaction from his “suspect” to justify shooting him. His approach to Trayvon was similar to how a “dirty” basketball player will foul and harass another player to get a violent reaction from them.
So he confronts Trayvon and probably pushes him and that’s when he says, “Get off!” but he wasn’t saying “get off” as if Zimmerman was on top of him, he was saying “get off” much like black people might say if someone grabs or pushes them by saying, “Hey get off me man!”.
Once they’re engaged in a scuffle, Zimmerman who outweighed Trayvon by almost 50 pounds probably let him get a couple of punches in, including one to the nose. He knew that he had to have some bruises and scars from the encounter to make it seem as though Trayvon attacked and nearly killed him. Zimmerman probably never threw a punch, but he wrestled with Trayvon because he wanted ALL the evidence to demonstrate that Trayvon was the aggressor.
Once he got Trayvon into a state of rage, where he wasn’t backing off or defending himself he knew that he could shoot him in so called self-defense. Zimmerman was probably struggling for his gun as they were wrestling and Trayvon began to yell for help. It’s obvious that Trayvon was the one yelling for help because the screams stop abruptly after the shot. If Zimmerman was the one yelling for help, he would have continued screaming in shock of shooting his attacker.
This may seem controversial, but keep in mind that Zimmerman is a wannabe cop who knows the law. He also did not have life threatening injuries that would indicate he was completely in fear of his life. He also refused medical care and simply wanted a doctor’s note for his job the following day. Zimmerman probably thought that he would make a positive impression on the local police and his neighbors by killing a potential criminal. He also hoped that he would be hailed as hero and that his hopes of finally becoming a police officer would come true.
The entire shooting may not have been premeditated but it was certainly calculated which made it so difficult to try in court because most reasonable people would never assume that someone could deliberately orchestrate a murder that seemed so random; but a sociopath like George Zimmerman knew that from the moment he stepped out of his car with a loaded gun.
