George Zimmerman Bullied Former Colleague, Complaint Says
ABC ^ | 06/27/2012 | By MATT GUTMAN

Posted on 06/27/2012 7:54:05 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd

One of George Zimmerman's former colleagues at CarMax, where he worked in 2008, complained formally about the man who killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin, alleging serial hazing that lasted for months and included pranks and ethnic jokes.

When the salesman complained to management, Zimmerman denied the harassment.

"The guy was so convincing when he was confronted by management to the point where I doubted my own self. I would not be surprised if he got away with it [Martin murder accusation]."

"He's got, like you say, a good poker face. Great poker face," said the colleague. "That pretty much summarizes this guy's personality. Great poker face."

The employee, who is an Arab-American, worked part time at the used car retailership during 2008, and rose quickly to become one of the company's top salesmen, despite the hazing, he says.

"These are some of the bully activities I have been facing that led me to be concerned about my work environment," he wrote in the one page complaint. The complaint accused Zimmerman of pressuring him to split deals with him, of repeatedly "impersonating me in a terrorist character," and mocked him constantly to earn the laughs of fellow workers.

This is hilarious. It really is. The lower-than-whale-(bleep) presstitutes find time to dig up something (ANYTHING) on Mr. Zimmerman. But basically ignore the real threats that No Limit... posed while alive.

I went to school with ZimMan. He chewed gum and one time I saw him stick a wad under his desk. I will be going forward with this story...

Ah yes, the time honored “Nuts-and-Sluts” smear campaign. This was perfected by the Clinton mafia. Looks like the strategy is back in play.

George Zimmerman farted in church once and I told the Priest but when he asked me if anyone else witnessed this I had to say no. I will however be contacting the networks because this outrage simply must be made public.

The folks have a right to know!!

You're on to something here. Perhaps we should flood the MSM with Zimmerman experiences ala 'once, when I was at 7-11, Zimmerman looked a me and smiled.....he must be guilty!'

After the story yesterday of Zimmerman passing the voice analysis stress test and lie detector tests the lib media simply had to counter.

ABC News reporter Matt Gutman attended the elite Williams College and he comes from a wealthy family. His grandfather Alvin Gutman founded a textile company.

Once again [we see] that our news media is dominated by the children of the wealthy and elite. And this class of people is really out to get high-prole/lower-middle-class people like George Zimmerman (even when they have Jewish last names, are half Hispanic, are registered Democrats, and mentor black youth in their spare time).

So true.

However, this un-named former coworker at CarMax, who's only identifiable trait in that article is that he's "an Arab-American" & "one of the company's top salesmen" was concerned about being bullied and targetted as a laughing stock on the job, he now has exposed himself to the ridicule of all who read this article to which he attached his credibility to.

Zimmerman could have been a card carrying KKK, Neo-Nazi pedophile and still would have been justified in shooting Trayvon Martin.

The former car salesman insists that Zimmerman, who was 24 at the time, was not a racist,

Interesting quote.

Why is it we know every detail of Zimmerman's past life, yet the the past life of the current US president either remains a mystery or has been exposed as a total lie?

This really reads like the stuff they used to say about Bush. He’s to stupid to tie his shoes but he’s an evil genius who controls and manipulates those around him.

He uses profanity when talking to non-emergency dispatchers and says “sir” and “mam” when being interrogated by detectives. So he’s manipulating LE and they don’t know it.

Really?

How the leftist media see it:

Zimmerman held a young male Negro at gunpoint and forced the boy to destroy public property by making him repeatedly slam Zimmerman's head into the concrete sidewalk multiple times. Further, Zimmerman committed medical fraud by threatening to shoot the young Negro if he did not break Zimmerman's nose so that he could bill his medical insurance for the injury.

So should he have let Trayvon Martin beat him into a coma or worse to make up for his unkind behavior to this fellow. This is ridiculous.

I will be alerting the media to what I witnessed George Zimmerman do once at a grocery store in Bangor, Maine. He picked up a can of Del Monte green beans, carried it over a couple of aisles, and then placed it among the General Mills cereal boxes!

"He also accused Zimmerman of giving the new worker 'wrong directions about how to perform my job, and then later made jokes to other employees and managers of how stupid' I was to listen."

Well, if that's true Ahmed, then where are these other employees and managers to corroborate your story? Two interesting points about this article:

1. Matt Gutman wrote the article.

2. ABC chose not to publish the accusers name. Real credibility there.

Gutman has recently been named as having colluded with ex-detective, now patrol officer Chris Serino in leaking the "no visible injuries" surveillance video of Zimmerman arriving at the police station.

"This Matt Guttman is the same ABC news guy that stole and leaked the video of Zimmerman"

I doubt he stole it. More like Chris Serino provided it to him. Serino was one of the original detectives to investigate, and it was his report that the state prosecutors originally said didn't provide enough evidence to pursue a case against Zimmerman. Serino just recently "requested" that he be relieved of his detective position and be "allowed" to return to being a street cop, all the while retaining his pay as a detective. Yeah right. If you haven't seen this info yet...check it out. It alleges that the video shown on ABC is actually from an iPhone, and CCTV shows that Serino recorded it from a recording.
