Video: George Zimmerman ‘wept’ first night in jail says report

According to reports by ABC News, George Zimmerman, who is facing second-degree murder charges in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, “wept quite a bit” during his first night in jail and was under 24-hour-protective custody surveillance. George Zimmerman’s arrest comes 45 days after the tragic shooting that sparked civil unrest and protests across the nation. George Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder after a special prosecutor, Angela Corey, reviewed the case, and determined that Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed, black male, after profiling him and falsely assuming the teen was engaging in illegal activity. George Zimmerman claims self-defense saying that after following Trayvon, he turned to return to his vehicle, when Trayvon took it upon himself to follow Zimmerman to his vehicle and attack him. The prosecution disagrees.

In an interview with ABC, Mark O’Mara stated that George Zimmerman recognizes his involvement in Trayvon Martin’s death and may reach out to Martin’s parents. He stated, “Understand that George fully well realizes that he was involved in some way in the death of another young man. He does not take the result of that altercation lightly at all. That weighed on him, I would imagine, more than the isolation, more than the last six weeks, more probably than the threat of what is to come in the system.”

George Zimmerman has said he wishes to apologize to Trayvon Martin’s parents; they are unreceptive to his request.
