The page mentions a seven-year-old domestic violence incident between Mr. Zimmerman and a former girlfriend and includes several photos.
Zimmerman discusses his hometown of Manassas, Va. He talks about Mexicans, in his words, messing with people’s cars and pulling knives. No details are provided.
The 28-year-old Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting of the 17-year-old Martin in Sanford. The case has sparked racial tensions around the country because Mr. Martin, who was unarmed, was Black, while Mr. Zimmerman has a White father and Hispanic mother. Mr. Martin’s family and supporters say he was a victim of racial profiling. (AP)
