“I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am and I did not know if he was armed or not.” George Zimmerman Apology
Over 50 days after he killed Trayvon Martin George Zimmerman offers an apology. Who was this apology for? His parents? I don’t think so. He got the opportunity to express his “sorrow”, but he also got the opportunity to say he thought their 17 year old son was a grown man and he also got the opportunity to say he did not know if Martin was armed or not. So what was the purpose of the apology? To tell his side of the story without being cross examined.
