George Zimmerman

to Trayvon Martin's Parents

'I'm Sorry'

7/18/2012 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



George Zimmerman
has issued an emotional apology to the parents of Trayvon Martin ... and says he prays for them every single day.

Zimmerman sat down with Sean Hannity and for the first time on camera, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Martin back in February is talking about the incident.

During the interview, which airs tonight on Fox News, Hannity asks if Zimmerman had a message for Trayvon's parents ... to which George replied, "I would tell them that, again, I’m sorry."

After noting that he and his wife do not have any children of their own, he continued, "I am sorry that [Trayvon's parents] buried their child ... I can’t imagine what it must feel like and I pray for them daily."

Zimmerman has been charged with 2nd degree murder ... and if convicted, could face up to life in prison.

He's not sorry, his big ass just doesn't want to be in prison for life. His family doesn't like Black people either, and that's information from people that grew up around them. Black people are only tolerable if they remind them of what a caucasian supposedly is. Its bull****, he doesn't want to go to prison for life like no one would, but dammit, he did the crime, he needs to do the time or let everyone out of prison that has killed someone because this coward wants to get special treatment for killing a kid.

How can you apologize to someone's family, and say that you wouldn't change the situation? That's a big pile of crap and he knows it. I'm sorry aka I don't want to go to prison and end up getting the **** kicked out of me or worse for years to come.

"Please set me free, i'm not black, I shouldn't be in here for killing one of .....them." < This is the type of BIGOT racist mentality he has. Florida needs the FBI penetrating the **** out of the Police forces, and there need to be fresh police officers every 3 years or so so that cops don't get comfy with corruption.

We pay the taxes for this ****.

He could have been smoking crack and shooting dope at the time he was shot! But that is irrelevant! Here in the united states you DO NOT shoot and kill a young man like that. No matter who he is or what he does! GZ took the law into his own hands and that is unacceptable and that is what matters right now, justice for a kid who lost his life due to stereotyping. May god have mercy on this terrible mans soul.

I'm sick and tired of this man being judged unfairly by people who were not there. It's a shame what happened but let the courts do their job. If anyone is to blame it's mommy and daddy for not have a tighter leash on their wanta be thug son!

So sad that everyone wants to say that the person who is dead in this situation deserves it because might or might not have been a bad kid.
Which he was people, 17 years old.. JUST A KID!!! The bottom line is GZ made a decision to get out of the car when what he should have done is called police and let them handle it. TM may have been up to no good or he could have just been walking home quickly in the rain but I would be willing to bet the outcome would have been different if the cops had been called in to take care of the situation instead of someone not prepared to defend himself without lethal force attempting to take the law in to his own hands. GZ your apology is sad and pathetic. How bout taking some responsibility for the fact that you took another persons life. You shouldn't just be sad that TM parent's had to bury their son. You should be sad you killed a young man that night.

GZ Violated his bond condition by communicating indirectly to the Martins...
You are not to contact the victim's family directly or indirectly....

Listen to the 911 tapes, some hear the following sounds at these times...


If you listen to the 911 tapes that George made. Review the following clips....
2:11 GZ says he's running 2:14 The car door slams.
2:27 "We don't need you to do that."
2:40 He ran for the second time he says TM is running away from him...
2:42 you hear GZ openning the porch door
2:47 You distinctively hear the first set of knocks on the door (This is @ witness 11's home).

The porch light come on and at
2:53 You hear the door open... You can hear GZ most likely waiting in between the screen door and the open back door...
