Name:

During his interview, he confirms that he is an ex-coworker of George Zimmerman His full name is withheld.

Witness Summary:

He knows Zimmerman as an ex-coworker. They worked together 2008/2009. Zimmerman was already employed when the witness began to work there. He says he is Middle Eastern and the work environment was unwelcoming. Zimmerman noticed that other employees didn’t like him, so Zimmerman chose him as a target of bullying to prove himself to other people.

Witness stated that his mentor said that George was good at his job, and had caught on to the work quickly. As such, he told the witness to ask him or George if the witness had any questions. As a practical joke, Zimmerman made the witness perform menial tasks, then embarrassed him in front of other co-workers for complying with his instruction. He says Zimmerman referred to him as a “fucking moron,” and he did comedy skits about him on the job on multiple occasions.

Zimmerman made fun of the witness and his accent, saying lines from “Ahmed the Terrorist“. This went on for days and days. The witness submitted a letter of complaint to the company after making a verbal complaint to the manager about Zimmerman’s behavior.

The witness said that the taunting got so bad that he felt violent thoughts against Zimmerman. George Zimmerman mocked his accent and made reference to terrorism regarding his background. Zimmerman did comedy shows and jokes about Middle Easterners in reference to the witness while on the job. He constantly called the witness a moron and stupid.

The witness feels like Zimmerman was trying to fit in with the clique and targeted him for that reason. Since the witness was the “new guy,” Zimmerman found him an easy target for entertainment. The managers asked if the witness thought Zimmerman was just playing. The management had a talk with Zimmerman and it didn’t do any good.

The witness says that Zimmerman never threatened him with violence, or put his hands on the witness. It was immature behavior, with racial overtones.

The witness says that Zimmerman would have never messed with Trayvon if he was a big guy. He mentioned that their job hired a new guy who had been in the military, and George Never bothered that guy. He says that George Zimmerman was fired because he called the company hotline excessively. He had a history of filing complaints against managers and how things were run in the store. He was making these complaints to Human Resources. After Zimmerman was fired, the managers told him that HR said the guy was nothing but trouble and to get rid of him. He said that Zimmerman would be extremely professional to your face. He says that Zimmerman is a very convincing guy, and the witness said that Zimmerman’s rebuttal to the managers calling him in about the witness’ complaint made him almost doubt himself–as if to say, perhaps he had misunderstood Zimmerman.

    So Omar is at home and see’s GZ on the news and calls the police to say GZ made him mad cause he hazed him at work cause he was the new guy,,, That puppet show was popular back then and how is GZ a manipulator? I think Omar is overly sensitive and only called the police for revenge but now GZ is the manipulator for cracking jokes in front of everyone. The real manipulators are Trayvons family, they posted a picture of a 12 year old smiling little boy and not the 17 year old gang banger, dope grower, dope smoking dude his mother kicked out 2 days til Christmas. They didn’t show the picture of his semi auto pistol TM had, looked at his cellphone pics

      Whatever moron. I went through the same thing. Being made fun if got being middle eastern by a right wing extremist illiterate who had the writing level of a 7th grader, is not being sensitive.

      My hill billy hater even hacked into my twitter to get me fired.

      He called me narcissist behind my back if course, even after I chose not to complain about all three co workers for hacking into my twitter.

      My hick and zimmerman fit the bill for narcissist, not me. Riley hamilton, the buffoon that ruined my management job even threatened me with brass knuckles from 30 yards away.

      I was called sensitive too by boss who would join in on hillbilly remarks about my non existent accent. I was called idiot even though I did the programming, ANC other guy did easy shot.

      U must also be racist

    • palinpeople

      Hey moron, calling him a dope smoker and ignoring zimmermans real crimes, temper, aggression and the fact that zimmie ur molester hero was on two anti pyschotics that make u violent and aggressive, makes u look fucking stupid.

      Admit u hate blacks more than molesters and don’t breed. World has enough trailer trash.

      Zimmie a friend has a book, parents ask for donations, zimmie sells autographs, dad has ebook for sale, and Robert makes blatantly racist remarks and charges for interviews.

      U end reality check or u need to learn what the word manipulate means.

      Zimmie is narcissist just like zimmerman.

    So, where was this witness in the FBI investigation. I understand that the FBI didn’t find one witness to testify to him being a racist.

    • Single senior

      I don’t feel that the FBI really tried. Look at what they determined about the remark “fun&ing c@@ns. ” Does anyone with normal hearing hear the word ” punks ” ? I sure don’t.

      • Pookie

        I heard punks, your hearing coons cause the media implanted the coons in your head. Just like playing a record backwards, you hear what ever someone tells you

        • palinpeople

          Both of you are wrong. He definitely didn’t say punks so u have been on right wing blogs.

          He said goons, a local black gang.

    I’m sorry to hear that George hurt this guys feelings.  It’s completely irrelevant to the case, however. 

  • KingCobe

     I agree. I doubt it will even be heard at trial.

  • torontogirl

    Yes it does have to do with the trial. If it didnt he would not be called as a witness in his trial. He had nothing to do with the shooting or incident but he is a witness as he knows GZ character. If he says that GZ made fun of him and made fun of his accent and made racist comments to him about him being a terrorists being he is arab then it totally has to do with the trial. It would show that GZ has racist views. GZ says he didnt racially profile TM.  This witness is showing that GZ does have a problem with other races which could show that GZ hated black people and didnt act in self defence but really wanted to kill a black person.
    If you learn aboput trials then you will find out that witness’s are called to talk about a persons character and who they are and how they treated them. Especially considering many people feel he racially profiled TM this witness is extremely important to show his racial sterotypes and how he treats peolple of other cultures.

    Its going to be used.  George is “opening the door” for character witnesses, as that is all he is using.  Since George is using character witnesses for himself, the prosecution will be allowed to introduce character evidence to disprove his character.

  • palinpeople

    So if zimmerman is a known racist, it doesn’t matter?!? Ha ha ok dude!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1121898325 Lynda West

    This confirms what a manipulator GZ is and how once confronted with something becomes a docile person to where this guy actually doubted himself after everything he was put through. 

  • Single senior.

    If Zimmerman walks with the help of his sleazy lawyers ,I hope he is hunted and shot like he did to the boy. If he gets away with this ,he will do it again. He thinks he is a hero

  • P. D.

    His name is Omar, they forgot to beep it 08:23

  • palinpeople

    I went through the exact sane thing with another narcicist named riley hamilton. After complaining for 3rd time to wrong person, I was fired. Same exact racist bs with passive aggressive bullshit, every day for a year.

    Like zimmerman, my guy was also illiterate but made fun of my accent. Even though I don’t have one and lived here for 25 years.
