ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — George Zimmerman called the Sanford police department lazy more than a year before he shot Trayvon Martin to death.

The Miami Herald first reported details from the January 2011 community meeting Wednesday. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the tape from the meeting. In a 90-second speech, Zimmerman says he witnessed "disgusting" behavior by officers when he was part of a ride along program.

Zimmerman asked the mayor at the time to look into what he called cover-ups and corruption within the department. Zimmerman also wanted then-Sanford police chief Brian Tooley's pension to be repealed.

Tooley retired early when faced with criticism that Sanford police dragged its feet in arresting the son of a police lieutenant on charges of knocking out a homeless black man.
