George Zimmerman Says He Lives In Constant Fear, Has PTSD

Source: GMA / ABC News

George Zimmerman, the Florida man acquitted of murdering teenager Trayvon Martin, says he lives in constant fear and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

He also suggested that President Obama helped to inject racism into the controversial shooting in order to win votes for himself during his reelection.

Zimmerman, 30, told Univision that he lives in a constant state of fear, needing bodyguards and bullet-proof vests, and that he suffers from PTSD. In a separate interview aired today on CNN, Zimmerman said he still gets death threats.

“I have a lot of people saying that, you know, they guarantee that they’re going to kill me and I’ll never be a free man,” he told CNN.

    Would you rather be dead like Trayvon or would you rather be in prison where you belong…it’s up to you!

    Your guilty conscious will never go away….

  • rp3thax

    I’m sure other people that get away with murder feel the same way.

  • eclark53

    Nope, I am afraid this one is going to follow him to the grave. The worst has not yet to come.

  • MsVKnowsBest

    if he goes to prison or remains free (which he shouldn’t have)–he’s as good as a dead man. george zimmerman is a murderer and like others have said in this post, his guilty conscious will never go away because other murderers who get away with murder will always feel like he does.

    Zimmerman’s torment and guilty conscious will eat him alive…it’s only a matter of time before he looses his mind…remember, you heard it here first!!!!

    I need you to publish our
    situation in the national media, so that we can get the legal help, and the
    justice that is due to us. We only want
    what is due to us nothing more – to be treated the same as others similarly
    situated – that’s all.

    No one in these United
    Sates, and or the world should be FORCED INTO ENTERING the BACK DOOR of their own HOME and Property because of the COLOR OF THEIR SKIN – this is simple un American.

    The following is the response I wrote to Mr. Morris Dees. It appears that although the Codes of Alabama are being BLATANTLY VIOLATED, no one
    is willing to help us because we are average Americans born with BLACK SKIN.

    Thus, At this juncture in America, I find it hard, nearly impossible to believe in an American DREAM.

    My family has endured the most unusual set of circumstances. Our aged and mentally ill mother was summoned to Court. Prior to the trial, it was noted that she was suffering from Alzheimer’s’ disease. Judge McDermott, not a medical doctor, determined that she was mentally fit to stand trial. This is a violation of: (1) his oath of office, (2) a blatant violation of our mother’s due process rights, and (3) the codes of Alabama. As a result, we have lost a major portion of our property due to this judge’s participation in intrinsic fraud within the Court – our system of justice and equity.

    The persons he conspired with have;
    (1) committed extrinsic fraud upon the Court
    , (2) presented fraudulent documents to the Court – the Court accepted [them] without question because the person presenting them are Anglo-Americans; and
    (3) they have committed perjury in open court numerous times.

    Additionally, these persons in conjunction with the City of Satsuma, Alabama (Mobile County) are forcing us, under color of law, into ENTERING THE BACK OF OUR HOME. Mr. Maurice Kirk Harless, the grandson of the late James “Buck Harless” of Gilbert West Virginia committed FRAUD upon the court and perjury to gain title to our property. Prior to his taking our aged and mentally ill mother to court, he nor the others involved in the FRAUD had never been on or in possession of our family heir property. Mr. Maurice Kirk Harless, a Mobile Realtor built the “Gilbert Creek Subdivision” in Satsuma on the property that he stole from our family.

    His deed states that Hildreth Drive is to be left open for us, the heirs of John
    Hilliard to access the FRONT of our HOME, he did the following :
    (1) closed the road to the FRONT of our HOME,
    (2) cut a TRAIL BEHIND our HOME as our only means of access,
    (3) illegally moved our USPS residential mailbox and placed it BEHIND our HOME,
    (4) assigned us a supposed [legal] ADDRESS TO THE OUR BACK DOOR, and
    (5) have threaten that if we call the POLICE AGAIN, WE WILL BE

    My brother and I cut the underbrush out of what is left of the road in the front our home, (pride of ownership, right) and now we are being charged with trespass.

    A Section 1983 lawsuit was filed against Mr. Harless and the city of Satsuma, but we were recently informed that the Mobile, Ala. Court has DISMISSED ALL of these charges.

    In this Section 1983 case, Mr. Harless is counter-claiming trespass against us for cutting the underbrush in the road, which is an established easement to the FRONT of our HOME.

    In our present day society, one would naturally question, “How can one human treat another in this manner” ???

    The Mobile court said that we cannot litigate this issue again, that we may not like it, and that we just have to accept this subservient treatment. For this reason, someone needs to sue the state of Alabama, Mobile County, the City of Satsuma and Mr. Maurice Kirk Harless (the grandson of the late James “Buck” Harless of Gilbert, WV) for forcing my family, under color of law, into ENTERING THE BACK OF OUR HOME because of the color of our skin, we are African Americans.

    Having to access our home and property from the BACK is a THROW BACK to the days of Jim Crow – this treatment of my family is like the act of the DEVIL embodied in the flesh.
    QUESTION: Who in this day and age (intelligence and technology) would ever conceive of , think of treating another human being in this manner, unless [they] see us as less than human, less than American, less than a creation of God.

    Under these circumstances, we are Blessed to have soundness of mind. The FRAUD and atrocity is being perpetuated against because of the color of our SKIN. We are African Americans.
    QUESTION: In the event of a tragedy, will the “stand your groad defense apply?”

    Today, I thought, the irony of it all.

    The upcoming trial is against us for trespassing the in road that has provided access to the FRONT of our home for more than one hundred years. This roadway has been used by the public at large, to include our U. S. mail delivery. Now, our U.S. mail delivery is BEHIND our home.

    The trespass supposedly occurred when we cut the underbrush out of what is left of the roadway to the front of our home.

    Resultantly,, we are being sued (1) by the persons who fraudulently stole our property, (2) who have illegally closed the entry to the FRONT of our home, (3) who have in essence has put us into an encampment, (4) who are making us receive all of our services in an subservient manner – at our BACK DOOR, (5) all because of the color of our skin.

    This treatment of my family has to be the most atrocious, brazen and conscious shocking thing that has happen to any American family in recent times.

    The most difficult aspect of this situation is that it is wrong, and it appears that no one can (or will) do anything to rectify the wrong, not even our justice system. WHY? ? ?

    I wish that I could just let it go, but….. this is just WRONG,

    Please pray for me, as I am tempted to …., and it helps me to understand why some people do unthinkable acts.
    Please, please HELP.
