George Zimmerman Blasts President Obama, Says Killing Trayvon Martin Was God's Plan
Almost two years after he was acquitted of fatally shooting Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old, George Zimmerman, through his attorney, issued a new video in which he talks about U.S. Department of Justice investigation, which last month decided not to charge him with a hate crime. He continues to deny he did anything wrong and "believe the American judicial system failed in the sense that I should not have hone to trial." He says a person in his circumstances can’t feel guilty over surviving a confrontation like the one he had with Trayvon and "as a human, you can't feel guilty for living. For surviving." He blasts the media for portraying him as a "white racist" and felt like the Hispanic community threw him under the bus" without knowing anything about his character. He also blasts President Obama, whom he says brought the highest level of unfairness to his situation and "broke the law." He says the president "pitted Americans against each there, based on race," when he said in a speech at the White House that he he had a son "he'd look like Trayvon." Regarding his run-ins with the law (his estranged wife called police to say George threatened her and her father with a gun, his girlfriend said he threatened her with a gun, he was involved a round incident and earlier this year he was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a weapon after throwing a wine bottle at his ex-girlfriend) after he was acquitted: "I would ask them to put themselves in my shoes," he says. "When you have a speeding ticket and it makes international news, you have to sit back and ask what is the media's agenda." He says he now has to live life as recluse and have to continually watch over his shoulders.
