Logan Co. superintendent accused of not reporting rape on unpaid leave

George Zimmerman says he's homeless, suffers from PTSD


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?

Zimmerman also sat down for a one-on-one on CNN airing Monday. On Twitter, many argue Zimmerman should be kept out of the spotlight for Martins' family's sake. (Via NewsOneGlobal Grind)

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."
