Zimmerman considers apology

This is just another sign that Zimmerman is being railroaded by the
system because of black supremacist thugs intimidating them just because
this man defended himself. Last time I checked running through
someone's backyard while wearing a hoodie and breaking someone's face
for no reason is thug behavior and trayvon got what he deserved. I dare
the same people who call this racism to see how they would react in the
same situation Zimmerman was in.

George Zimmerman to apologize to Trayvon Martin's family

The lawyer for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch captain who was
charged with second degree murder in the death of unarmed black teen
Trayvon Martin, said that the 17-year-old's death "weighs on" Zimmerman
and suggested his client might apologize to Martin's family.
"Understand that George fully well realizes that he was involved in some
way in the death of another young man," lawyer Mark O'Mara told ABC
News.
"He does not take the result of that altercation lightly at all. That
weighed on him, I would imagine, more than the isolation, more than the
last six weeks, more probably than the threat of what is to come in the
system," O'Mara said.
Zimmerman spent his first night in prison Thursday in protective
custody, where he could be watched at all times. Law enforcement
sources told ABC News, the 28-year-old "wept quite a bit" at night.
O'Mara suggested that Zimmerman may apologize to Martin's family, says
KBOI.


Attorney Mark O'Mara, who represents Zimmerman, told CNN's Piers Morgan
late Thursday that one of his immediate goals is to "bring down the
level of anger, animosity, just frustrations, emotions" that are on the
periphery of the case.
O'Mara said there are two sides of the case, a legal one and a human
one.
"We have the human tragedy side of it. We are going to try to bridge
that if we can," O'Mara said. "There are words that need to be said."
Special prosecutor Angela Corey, who was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott to
investigate the case, said she will ensure that the judge or jury
deciding the case will get only "the relevant, admissible evidence on
which they can then base their decisions."
"Let me emphasize that we do not prosecute by pressure or petition," she
said.
Both the defense and prosecution said they had no intention of trying
the case in the court of public opinion, though both conceded there is
extreme interest, informs CNN.

Zimmerman and his family have maintained that he was trailing Martin
because the young man appeared suspicious. Martin then disappeared from
view, only to re-emerge, confront him and assault him, they say. In the
fight, they contend, he shot Martin in self-defense. Florida's expansive
self-defense law, Stand Your Ground, was cited initially as a reason why
no charges were brought.
O'Mara said self-defense cases were not new to him; he said that he had
handled dozens, but that none had gone to trial as Stand Your Ground
cases. He has also tried high-profile death-penalty cases.
He said that self-defense would probably be a "facet" of Zimmerman's
defense, according to The MIT Tech.
