George Zimmerman Speaks out on Interview on Hannity
(Fox News) George Zimmerman, in an interview Wednesday with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, called the shooting death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin a “tragic situation” and “the most difficult thing i’ll ever go through in my life.”
When asked what he would say to Martin’s parents, Zimmerman said, “I would tell them that, again, I’m sorry.”
Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder for shooting and killing 17-year-old Martin on Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., though he says he was attacked and acted in self-defense. The case gained intense national attention as speculation grew about the motives for the shooting, especially given that Martin was black. Zimmerman has white and Hispanic heritage.
Zimmerman, interviewed with his attorney, Mark O’Mara, said of Martin’s parents, “I pray for them daily.”
“My wife and I don’t have any children,” Zimmerman told Hannity. “I have nephews that I love more than life. I love them more than myself. And I know when they were born, it was a different unique bond and love that I have with them. And I love my children even though that they aren’t born yet.
“I am sorry that they buried their child. I can’t imagine what it must feel like.”
Zimmerman, who is free on bond in Florida while awaiting trial, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.
Hannity had spoke with Zimmerman, 28, off the record in April when he contacted Hannity against the advice of his attorneys. The host has since refused to divulge the topic of their conversation.
