George Zimmerman believes the shooting death of Trayvon Martin was "all God's plan" ... telling Sean Hannity he will not second guess his actions on that fateful day.

Zimmerman -- who's been charged with 2nd degree murder for the February shooting -- broke his silence to Hannity during an interview that aired on Fox News last night.

During the interview, Zimmerman insisted, "I'm not a racist ... I'm not a murderer."

After the interview, Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, had some harsh words for George ... telling CBS News, "We must worship a different God. There is no way that my God would have wanted George Zimmerman to kill my teenage son.

I always felt that George Zimmerman provoked the incident but acted in self defense and shot Trayvon when he started to whoop his butt. After seeing this video clip I can see what a total nut job he is. Hopefully the magic man in the sky will put him away.

He will not second guess his actions on that day? Now THAT is scary. Anyone who takes another person’s life and has a conscience would second guess their actions. It would be normal no matter what the cir***stances. The fact that he doesn’t makes him an extreme danger to everyone around him since he would have no problem doing it again. He’s a psychopath in every sense of the word.

Few years ago Andy Reid's (Eagles coach) kid was in N. Philly a area heavily populated by American Americans. He was there to buy drugs and was carrying a weapon. I wonder if a black man who felt he felt who he looked suspicios there shot him if some of you would agree it was a justifiable homicide. My heart would hurt for the Reid family just as it does for the Martin family. Its sad some of you can't see that

Right. It was God's plan for him to gun down a young kid.

Yeah, that's how god works.

It's no wonder why America is so screwed up with people who think like this. And there are a lot of them, unfortunately.

I feel so much for these parents. To know that the piece of shi* who murdered their son thinks it was Gods plan. This is gonna be a messed up trial because of all the publicity but I hope he gets fried. BIG mistake letting Georgie boy speak. He sounds like the off balance freak he is.

Once again the media is only taking excerpts from the interview. Perhaps they both misjudged each other by the color of their skin. Which may of led to an altercation & an unfortunate death. White people aren't the only ones who racially profile & prejudge one based on skin color. A lesson to be learned by all in this tragedy. The media especially. First reporting it was a white man who shot this young boy. Shame on them!!!

I DON'T THINK I COULD BELIEVE IN A GOD THAT IS OK WITH PEOPLE KILLING KIDS! SO BASICALLY THIS GUY IS PASSING THE BLAME OFF ON GOD! THIS IS ANOTHER WAY OF JUSTIFYING WHAT HE DID NOT UNLIKE THEY DO IN THE MIDDLE EAST WITH THEIR HOLY WARS AND THE WILL OF ALLAH! HE TOOK A LIFE AND SHOULD PAY WITH HIS OWN!

The problem is w Florida's "Stand Your Ground" Law. It deputizes every gun-slinging yahoo in the state. It's vigilante justice and the people who passed this law are the ones who should stand trial. Zimmerman was following the law as it stands.
He'll walk.
God Bless America...bang, bang.

question: if someone is bashing the back of your head against concrete, do you A) forgive him and let him keep bashing until you're dead or B) shoot him ?

yes, the kid is black, and yes, Zimmerman was told not to pursue, but the fact is they got in a fight and he feared for his life. that's all there is to it. nothing that happened before the fight matters.. Trayvon was trying to kill Zimmerman so Zimmerman shot him just as I would. this s*** about racism is for the birds.

Obviously no one from TMZ reads these comments but Jeez, couldn't you create a MORE biased poll?

Options: GUILTY AS HELL, or, GUILTY AS HELL (but maybe, just maybe, he has a point, a single one, maybe).
