George Zimmerman Says He's Homeless, Suffers From PTSD

George Zimmerman Says He's Homeless, Suffers From PTSD
George Zimmerman reportedly told a Spanish-language TV station Sunday that he's homeless and struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder.

"The neighborhood watch volunteer fatally shot Trayvon Martin two years ago this month. In the interview, Zimmerman repeatedly declines to answer questions about the shooting, citing a still-pending federal civil rights investigation."

Zimmerman also apparently says he's more than $2 million in debt and that he fears for his life - constantly wearing a bulletproof vest when he's out.

The claims of debt are the same as what we heard back in November - much of it is apparently from legal fees. We've also heard Zimmerman say before he fears for his safety. So - many are asking, why continue with these interviews?

Zimmerman also sat down for a one-on-one on CNN airing Monday. On Twitter, many argue that Zimmerman should be kept out of the spotlight for Martins' family's sake, according to the Global Grind.

Since he was found 'not guilty' of murder in Martins' death last July, Zimmerman has stayed in the spotlight - for speeding tickets, domestic incidents and for selling his artwork online in an apparent effort to solve some of that debt.

Fox News offers a different point. "Journalists interview bad guys all the time," they state. "What should be judged ... is the quality of the interview and the toughness of the questions."

If he had gone to prison, we America would be in the several Million dollar debt. But he would at least be out of the spot light, and unable to gain all the media attention he continues to gather.

I believe he felt like he did the right thing at first, but it was a poor second choice. To me it just looks like now he want s to be in the spot light, and so I say send him to jail for vagerancy, and stop his postulating.

..."he fears for his life - constantly wearing a bulletproof vest when he's out."

Then stop making yourself so available to the public and the media. Might as well wear highway orange or paint a giant red bulls-eye on your back. Idiot. It's like watching a train wreck in slow-motion.

LOL He's not concerned about paying off his debt. He is wise to wear the vest though. Do another paint by numbers George. Some fool will buy it.

This guy is disgusting! If this is from legal fees he has a bonafide Bar Complaint since his defense attorney made it WELL KNOWN he was representing him PRO BONO (free) . If he is now demanding fees that is not allowed. Omara is now a CNN contributor (an attorneys dream..no more real work) and he also may and probably did take the $ from the numerous Def Fund sites. Give me a break I never want to hear or see him again!(gz or Omara)

As Zimmerman has said himself, he only has to answer to God, and it would appear that God has answered.
