On the MySpace account in the name of "Joe G.," Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, recalls moving from Manassas, Virginia, saying, "I don't 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 ain't around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) don't make you a man in my book. Working 96 hours to get a decent pay check, getting knifes pulled on you by every Mexican you run into."
Also released were copies of the e-mails between Zimmerman and Lee before the shooting regarding the neighborhood watch program. Zimmerman, in the e-mails, notes there has been a "spike in robberies and home invasions in the neighborhood within the past two months."
He adds that he has not had a positive view of Sanford police because of the "Sherman Ware incident." Ware, a black homeless man, was beaten by a Sanford police lieutenant's son. Zimmerman was critical of police handling of the case and reportedly worked on Ware's behalf.
Zimmerman was released on $1 million bond last week. An initial bond of $150,000 was revoked last month after a judge learned that Zimmerman and his wife failed to disclose more than $150,000 in donations from the public.
