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.

What fire? Bozo? Must have missed that. You have proven to me that you have "at least 10% brain matter." Take some ginkgo biloba supplements. I hear that's good for the brain. But I think the real problem is your 'heart' - you don't have one. And neither does Zimmerman.

Do we have any evidence that he was sincere, or are we just guessing?

This is what happens when news organizations pass off polls as news. A poll is just a collection of opinons based on the opinions of others becuase there is very little real information to base and educated opinion on. No one in Milford CT. 1200 miles from Sanford Fl. knows nor cares about the facts of the case because they already have an opinion. When it is possible to try and convict a person of any crime based on an opinion poll conducted in the media, this country is lost.
