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.

This really just goes to show the Mr. Zimmerman is the bigger person. He is the one who was attacked by this thug, Trayvon Martin. He did everything he could, yelled for help, tried to crawl away, and the punk kid kept bashing his head into the sidewalk threatening to kill him. Ultimately, he was left with no choice but to shoot Trayvon to defend himself. After being assaulted by their son, he's big enough to apologize to the parents, even though they should be the ones apologizing to him for their son's actions.

Trayvon's dead because Zimmerman had control issues.
He decided he was a cop jury and judge, decided he "knew" who was a criminal and who wasn't, and against common sense and police direction, he defiantly followed and confronted an innocent man, and ended up killing him.
Guy was just buying some candy, now he's dead.
I don't care if Trayvon *allegedly* attacked him first, that's what happens when you follow a guy around suspiciously and then confront them.
And what was the confrontation like? Zimmerman was smugly calling the guy a f*cking punk on the phone call....very indicative of what his attitude was like when he approached Trayvon.
Such control issues and smug attitude being present, he possibly and even probably told Trayvon that he had a gun.
I would have punched Zimmerman in the face and taken him down too.
Who wouldn't?

On one of Zimmerman's jailhouse phone calls he talks about how someone with the initials SH would pay fo his legal fees IF wait for it ,he hired sleaze ball Jose Baez.. O'Mara had asked for these calls to be sealed but the Judge refused. GZ wisely stuck with O'Mara, he doest need the negative baggage that Baez has in Florida. But there is clearly something going on at FOX where coincidentally Baez' buddy and biggest advocate Geraldo legend in his own mind Rivera regularly impersonates a investgative reporter. Rivera btw gave Baez's book of chit a rave review comparing it , no less to Helter Skelter. I kid you not. Check book journalism at its absolute worst.and nepotism of the worst kind.

I have so many issues with this.
1. Fox News? That is very telling, but If I wanted right wing, closeted racist to donate to the charity to help pay for my legal defenses. I guess he's on the channel with the right viewership.

2. Sorry, you killed someones child, sorry doesn't cut it *******.

3. YOU ARE A HISPANIC AND OR ASIAN JEW THE SAME PEOPLE THAT HATE TREYVON MARTIN HATE YOU AS WELL.

4. YOU ARE A GREAT BIG PHONY NO ONE BUYS YOUR PSEUDO EMOTIONAL SADNESS AND APOLOGIES.

Zimmerman and his wife spent $6,500 on Internet and phone bills, according to a do***ent his defense attorney filed with the judge. He and his wife bought new cell phones for $300 each and paid a year-long Verizon contract in full. They installed a telephone landline for $2,500 and spent $1,300 on a two-year AT&T wi-fi contract.

They paid off at least $7,000 in credit card bills.

They used $4,378 on automotive expenses, making payments on two car loans while renting

He couldn't send a card?
