George Zimmerman reportedly told a Spanish-language TV station Sunday he's homeless and struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder.
"The neighborhood watch volunteer fatally shot Trayvon Martin two years ago this month. In the interview, Zimmerman repeatedly declines to answer questions about the shooting, citing a still-pending federal civil rights investigation, " according to WPBF
Zimmerman also apparently says he's more than $2 million in debt and that he fears for his life — constantly wearing a bulletproof vest when he's out. (Via New York Daily News)
The claims of debt are the same as what we heard back in November — much of it is apparently from legal fees. We've also heard Zimmerman say before he fears for his safety. So — many are asking, why continue with these interviews?
Since he was found 'not guilty' of murder in Martins' death last July, Zimmerman has stayed in the spotlight — for speeding tickets, domestic incidents and for selling his artwork online in an apparent effort to solve some of that debt.
Though Fox points out — "... journalists interview bad guys all the time ... What should be judged ... is the quality of the interview and the toughness of the questions."
