(Newser) – George Zimmerman now has a legal site, a defense-minded Twitter feed, and a 7-year-old MySpace page that's causing some fresh trouble. The Miami Herald unearthed the page, which has been confirmed as authentic by his lawyer, and reports on the less seemly details contained within. Most notably: not-so-nice comments about Mexicans. Sample lines:

  • "I dont miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft ass wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin)."
  • "Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!"

The page, which was abandoned in 2005, also talks about Zimmerman's "ex-hoe," references jailed friends, brags about getting two felonies reduced to misdemeanors, and mentions that he misses his friends in his hometown of Manassas, Va. The Herald notes that he also posted several photos, including one in which he appears to be wearing the infamous orange polo from his 2005 mugshot.
