Besides Zimm's history of violence, it has now come out that he has mental health issues and was on drugs... a legal form of speed was one.
The media seems to focus on what a bad guy the 17 year old was, the guy who was minding his own business , not doing anything wrong.
but only a blind fool would overlook Zimm's HISTORY of being a violent trouble maker and his mental health problems:
1. arrested for battery 2. court order to stay away from girl friend because he made threats. 3. mental health issues 4. on psychiatric drugs...one a legal form of speed. 5. age 25 & packing a 9mm, and the bum doesn't even own any property to protect and for sure was not protecting anyone from anything. HE was the threat and loose cannon. 6. he chased after Trayvon, ignoring and disobeying the POLICE who he just got done using foul language with talking about the "f@@king" something or other, who was "getting away" , from what? the mental case Zim is all worked up because a person who was not doing anything wrong is "getting away".
"The medical report on Zimmerman was reportedly drawn up the morning after the shooting by a general physician, who also noted that Zimmerman, who had a permit to carry a concealed weapon, had prescriptions for Temazepam and Adderall.
Temazepam is a sedative and sleep aid. According to WebMD, it commonly causes drowsiness and dizziness, and, on rare occasions, can cause temporary memory loss, depression and confusion. Quitting the drug can result in withdrawal reactions, including shaking and seizures.
Adderall, a cocktail of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, is commonly prescribed to help patients suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. WebMD notes that it's "unlikely but serious" side effects include agitation, aggression, mood swings and abnormal thoughts
