Zimmerman has been a notorious public subject with a history of abuse. In 2012, he shot and killed 17 year old Trayvon Martin, an unarmed Black teenager. After he was charged with second-degree murder in April 2012, he was found not guilty by a jury in July 2013.
Zimmerman was arrested in January 2015 on claims of domestic abuse. The alleged victim dropped her case. No charges were filed.
He has also tried to sell the weapon used to kill Martin on two different auction websites.
