Another liberal lie
Have you noticed how the liberal media keep saying that George Zimmerman in court yesterday “apologized” for killing Trayvon Martin? He did not apologize for killing Martin. He said: “I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son. I didn’t know his age. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know whether he was armed or not.”
He is, like the good human being he is, expressing sorrow to Martin’s parents that their son is dead. He is not apologizing for killing him, which—all the available evidence suggests—he did in self-defense.
What particularly interested me about Zimmerman’s statement of regret regarding Trayvon’s death is that it precisely addressed the questions raised by Sybrina Fulton on April 12:LA replies:
I agree, but we should point out that Zimmerman’s statement may have come at the promptings of his attorney, Mark O’Mara.Paul K. replies:
I’m not saying that that statement by itself makes Zimmerman appear to be a dignified and morally serious person, but that everything I have seen of him, his way of speaking and demeanor, make me feel that he is.
