George Zimmerman’s Newly Found 2005 MySpace Page Raises Questions

A 2005 MySpace page belonging to George Zimmerman wherein he goes by “Joe G” has emerged. The page titled “Only To Be King” shows a man bragging about beating the legal system and his feelings on “Mexicans” in his former neighborhood of Manassas, Virginia.

The commentary, in some cases a bit startling in its bravado, perhaps offers a not-shown-before look at the man who shot and killed an unarmed Trayvon Martin in February — and raises still more questions about Zimmerman’s motivations on that night and in years past. According to The Miami Herald, Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, confirmed the page was his client’s, and that it was abandoned in 2005.

In the blog section Zimmerman writes:

Good news???? Bout Damn time!!!!!!!

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!

Out come of first case……

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……

The first comment refers to an altercation Zimmerman had with an undercover alcohol-control agent where he was charged with resisting arrest, violence, and battery of an officer. The second case where he refers to his ex-fiancé as a “hoe” is regarding a 2005 incident that led to a battery charge after he violated a restraining order. He avoided conviction of the first felony by agreeing to participate in a pre-trial diversion program that included anger-management classes.

Zimmerman goes on to say this about leaving Virginia in his “About Me” section:

“I know alot of yall hatin cause im out and aint ever goin back, i used to look at people like me the same way. Can you really hate on someone for improving thier life? I love the fact that I can still go back home and crash on my boys couch as if i had never left, I can hit my boy up to handle a lil somethin with my sister and he’s at my house with his boys on bikes before i hang up with her! They do a year and dont ever open thier mouth to get my ass pinched. My cousins the cruzado’s damn i love yall, shirley and frank DONT PLAY! I gotta be honest I miss that.

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!”

While the pictures on the page do showcase Zimmerman embracing friends of different ethnic backgrounds, this doesn’t alter the comments in his statements that can be seen as prejudicial, and it certainly does little to combat the notion of Zimmerman as someone who believed that he was “above the law” or would be able to “get out of a legal jam” if he ever found himself in one.

And for all the commentary about Trayvon Martin being a common thug based upon random, and at times false, photos gleaned from his Facebook page, what do those finger-pointers have to say now about the man who on his social networking page brags about evading jail time — and having friends who would go to prison so “he wouldn’t get pinched” — all after two felony charges? Who sounds more like the thug? The seventeen year-old kid, or the guy who thought it was a good idea to drive around with a weapon to protect against any and all perceived threats — and take action if given a chance?
