Fox News Sean Hannity Gets George Zimmerman’s Exclusive Interview … Discusses Night He Shot Trayvone Martin, “I Looked up and He Punched Me and Broke my Nose.” … He Prays for Trayvon’s Family Daily (VIDEO)
Tonight Fox News Sean Hannity scored the exclusive interview with George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch man in Sanford, FL who shot and killed Trayvon Martin. Did you think that Al Sharpton and MSNBC would get the interview? The case has become a polarizing news story of racism, media bias and anti-gun law agenda. Sadly, once the bias liberal media attached themselves to the case, the facts became irrelevant.
However, as the prosecution has released information in the case under Florida Sunshine laws, some of which should never have been released and was only done so to sway public opinion and inflame prejudice against Zimmerman. Tonight George Zimmerman flanked by his attorney Mark O’ Mara went on their own PR offensive. Amazingly Zimmerman went through the events of the evening where he followed Trayvon Martin, got into a scuffle with Martin while getting his nose broken and eventually shooting Martin dead. Some will call it a crazy legal move for a man facing second degree murder charges, others will say that the case is being tried in the court of public opinion, why not present your side to the public. During the interview George Zimmerman said, “I am sorry that they buried their child. I can’t imagine what it must feel like. I pray for them daily.”
Martin soon turned to confront Zimmerman and “asked me what my problem was” before the exchange escalated into violence, Zimmerman told Hannity in his first TV interview, conducted in an undisclosed location in Florida. The 28-year-old, with his attorney sitting by his side, said he reached into his pocket to find his phone to call 911 for a second time, and “I looked up and he punched me and broke my nose.” At one point Zimmerman said he heard Martin “telling me he’s going to kill me.”
The case drew intense national attention as speculation grew about the motives for the shooting, especially given that Martin was black. Zimmerman has white and Hispanic heritage. He dismissed suggestions by some that he acted out of racism. “I don’t think it’s fair that they rushed to judgment to assume that,” he told Fox News.
“I do want to tell everyone, my wife, my family, my parents, my grandmother, the Martins, the city of Sanford and America that I’m sorry that this happened,” he said. “I hate to think that because of this incident, because my actions, it’s polarized and divided American. And I’m truly sorry.”
