George Zimmerman May Be a Racist But That's Not All (VIDEO)

Trayvon Martin protest

George Zimmerman is not just very likely a racist. Not that being that isn't plenty bad on its own ... but looking at a log of 9-1-1 calls he made over the years outlines pretty clearly that this guy has other serious problems too. A control complex? Paranoia? Vigilante tendencies? Who knows what, but it's clearly something more than just a blatant bias and profiling of black men. This guy pretty much called police when a garbage can fell over or a leaf fell from a tree -- okay maybe not this bad but pretty darn close to anything out of the norm happening in his neighborhood.


He once reported "children running and playing in the street." I can understand fearing for a child's safety in the road or obstructing traffic, in which case you should go up to the kids and tell them to get the heck out of the road. Problem solved.

As a neighborhood watch guy, you'd assume he knew the basic rule of only dialling 9-1-1 if it's pretty serious, life or death, or a criminal or safety matter. I wonder if someone at the 9-1-1 center didn't leak Zimmerman's 9-1-1 call log because they felt someone should have noticed a possible loose cannon on their hands and send someone to have a talk with the guy. At least drop off a pamphlet or something reviewing the "neighborhood watch" guidelines.

Some of the other weird/paranoid/unreasonable things Zimmerman called the police for include:

An open garage door;

Trash in the roadway;

A loud party;

Yellow speed bike doing wheelies in the roadway;

A pot hole;

His landlord trying to collect his rent;

His ex-roommate letting people he doesn't like his house;

A stray dog;

A car driving around the neighborhood.

I can only imagine what other skeletons must be lurking in Zimmerman's upbringing and background, or what psychologists might be saying about this kind of behavior. I'm sure we will hear more in the coming days and weeks as this case is not going away until Zimmerman is made to pay for shooting unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month.

Here's the latest:

Do you think someone should have noticed this strange behavior before it reached the point that someone got killed?
