George Zimmerman has no shame. The man acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin retweeted a photo of Martin's dead body; Twitter eventually deleted the picture, but on Monday Zimmerman went on a profane tirade defending himself on Monday afternoon.

As if publicizing his already very public killing of a child weren't enough, he eventually tweeted the work and cell phone number of a man in Tennessee for reasons not readily apparent: A coworker of Micah Williams told the New York Daily News that his workplace had received "thousands of" harassing phone calls.

Zimmerman shot and killed the 17-year-old Martin in February of 2012 while working as a volunteer neighborhood watchman. He was acquitted of murdering the teenager, who was carrying an iced tea and a packet of Skittles while walking to his father's house. What Zimmerman retweeted was a crime-scene photo that was presented at his trial.

Zimmerman's Twitter feed has become a cesspool of racist insults and Confederate images. His Twitter photo is a Rebel flag, and earlier this summer he partnered with a Florida gun shop to sell his own Confederate-themed art as part of an anti-Muslim promotional event.

Zimmerman has also had multiple run-ins with police over allegations of domestic violence, although he ultimately hasn't faced charges. He's also apparently still dangerous. Just last month, he tweeted at one disgusted person, “We all know how it ended for the last moron that hit me. Give it a whirl cupcake.”

Maybe it's better someone this unhinged stay on Twitter and out of the real world.
