In an interview with The Daily Beast, George Zimmerman shows no remorse for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. During the interview Zimmerman talked poorly about Trayvon’s parents and blamed them for their son’s death.”They didn’t raise their son right,”He attacked a complete stranger and attempted to kill him,” said Zimmerman.
Zimmerman also stated, “Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin did everything they could to capitalize on her son’s death. She was never a mother figure to him. Tracy Martin couldn’t have cared less about their son. He treated him like a dog without a leash.”
Zimmerman also discussed why he sold the gun that he used to kill Trayvon Martin for $100,000. He stated that he wanted to keep it for his future children or grandchildren and decided to sell it after praying about the decision. Also, he claimed that since he is job less he had to auction off the gun. He also believes that the people who support the Black Lives Matter movement are on the wrong side and feels that the police officers that were involved in Cleveland, Ferguson, and other cities are the real victims.
The Daily Beast reached out to social activist, Ciara Taylor and asked her thoughts on George Zimmerman. Taylor believes that Zimmerman should seek psychological help for his behavior.“The recent actions of George Zimmerman are prime examples of a mental condition affecting the country at large: a heteropatriarchal, white supremacist societal illness that has been permeating and abstracting the moral conscience of the people United States since its foundation.”
Lastly, Zimmerman shared his thoughts on the 2016 presidential elections. Zimmerman stated that he would have to do more research before his supports Trump. Also, he “will do whatever it takes to dispel [Clinton’s] lies and disrupt the Black Lives Matter movement.”
