In recent weeks, we’ve heard a lot about Zimmerman being a bully. A Florida investigator described George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed unarmed teen Trayvon Martin, to the F.B.I. as “overzealous” but a “soft guy” with a “hero complex.” And his ex-girlfriend said he once smacked her in the mouth for chewing gum. So we’re accustomed to hearing stories about how Zimmerman behaved as a bully and vigilante. What we hadn’t heard, at least not until now, was the statement of “Witness 9″, the witness that Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, had tried so hard to suppress, and now we’re learning why.
It turns out that “Witness 9″ was a childhood friend of Zimmerman’s who came forward after she heard about Zimmerman fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. The witness is a female family friend of George Zimmerman who claims that Zimmerman molested her for almost 10 years. Not only that, “Witness 9″ says there are other victims as well, but they’re just unwilling to come forward.

A family friend of George Zimmerman told investigators he sexually molested her for a decade, newly-released audio tapes in the Trayvon Martin murder reveal.
The alleged molestation occurred at the home of George Zimmerman’s parents.
“I would try to push him off, but he was bigger, stronger and older,” she said during the interview on March 20, less than a month after the shooting. The woman, who contacted prosecutors after the Martin’s killing, said she was 6 and Zimmerman was 8 when he began molesting her.
When asked why she came forward, she said: “This is the first time in my life that I’m not afraid of him,” she replied.
The woman said her family would get together with Zimmerman’s family once a year. ”Every time that we would go up there, I could just look at him and he would give me a certain look and I would just know it was going to happen when we got together for family gatherings … He just got this look in his eye like he was going to [molest me].”
The woman says there are other victims. “It’s not just me that he would do these things to,” she told investigators. She said the other victims are just unwilling to come forward….
