Patch’s Poll: Do You Think George Zimmerman’s Apology Was Sincere?

The Florida man who shot and killed a 17-year-old Trayvon Martin tells Sean Hannity he was sorry to the teen’s parents and that he prays for Trayvon every day.


In his first media interview after being arrested in February, the man who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity he was sorry to the teen’s parents that they had to bury their child.

“I can’t imagine what it feels likes,” Martin said. “And I pray for them daily.”

Zimmerman remains out on bond in the highly publicized case that drew outrage during the first half of 2012.

During the interview Zimmerman gave his version of events, saying he got out of his car while on a neighborhood watch in his Sanford, Fla., gated community and followed Martin as he walked home from a convenience store. Zimmerman claims he lost track of Martin and that the teen later approached him and began fighting him, at which point he drew his gun and fired.

“I feel it was all God’s plan,” Zimmerman said, after Hannity asked him if he had any regrets.

Martin’s parents went on Fox news the night after to say they didn’t feel Zimmerman’s apology was sincere.

“I think he’s just saying whatever he wants to,” said Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton.

“He’s just trying to save face,” said Tracey Martin, Trayvon’s father.

Sorry - an apology does not cut it when you've killed someone else's child. It's never going to be good enough. This man is a proven liar over and over again and he is apologizing because he got caught and is going to prison for a very long time. Hopefully for the rest of his life. Society deserves to see justice done in this case and race does not come into play in my book. An adult killed an innocent child - I am blind to anything else here. End of story.
