George Zimmerman is not getting used to the rest of his life. In a new Spanish language interview with Univision that will air on Sunday night, Zimmerman details exactly how shitty his existence currently is, while also wondering why he can't live like the rest of us.
First, the grisly details: Zimmerman is $2.5 million in debt. He claims to have post-traumatic stress disorder. He wears a bulletproof vest and follows "safety plans" while in public. He fears being murdered himself. He does not have a job. He does not have health insurance (no Obamacare, eh?). He says that he is homeless.
These are not problems that a few paintings of AP photos can solve. These are not problems that allowing a washed up rapper to beat his ass can solve. It seems like Zimmerman is beginning to realize these facts.
"Honestly, I [would] love to live a calm life without being in the press. I'd like [to be treated like] any American citizen," Zimmerman says in the interview, according to a translation by the New York Daily News. "Have a ticket or an argument [and] not have everyone aware. But that's my life and I do not understand why that is."
At some point, one assumes, he'll figure it out.
