We all knew that the time would come when secrets, lies, and statements would begin to slowly unravel, pouring out of the veil of secrecy, uncertainty, and mystery heading into this case. It seems that in addition to attempting to speak in an indiscernible code with his wife to hide the money that he denied in court to having in his possession, Zimmerman also slipped up a few more times.
I do not appreciate the delays in the true matter of this case, the life of an innocent, unarmed Black teen full of potential who meant the world to his family, as We, the People are supposedly guaranteed “swift justice” in this land…but it is what it is, and trials of this magnitude and with this amount of publicity will undoubtedly take plenty of time for facts and evidence to be completely gathered. (Yes….run-on sentence…it’s late…pardon me.)
Here are just a few more things that Zimmerman inadvertently revealed in his taped jailhouse calls (c’mon, who doesn’t know that all calls and visits are monitored? Give me a break!!! The recording tells you before you are even put through to the receive of the phone call)
- - George Zimmerman counseled his wife, and his attorney, Mark O’Mara, to purchase bulletproof vests, out of concern for their security;
- - On an April 15 call, George Zimmerman instructed his wife on how to change the passcodes to his account, so that she could gain access. Prosecutors say he did so in order to facilitate moving money from the PayPal account to Shellie Zimmerman’s credit union account.
- - Shellie Zimmerman said during one of the calls that the website George Zimmerman created prior to his arrest, “kept crashing” because so many people were logging on to wish him well. Zimmerman expresses happiness at the support, and says those people need to “vocalize themselves more.”
- - George Zimmerman reveals that he is taking Adderall, a drug commonly prescribed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
