George Zimmerman sat down with the Univision Television show “Aquí y Ahora” to discuss how problematic his life is. (Rolls eyes)
Zimmerman became a household name after he fatally shot and killed a young African-American teen named Trayvon Martin back in 2012 and was not charged. Now, he opens up about how that incident has affected his life today. He even goes on to say that he doesn’t regret his decision to shoot the boy in cold blood because if he hadn’t he “would not be here” today.
Zimmerman recalls 17 year old Trayvon Martin walking in his neighborhood late in which he says Trayvon then attacked him and threatened to kill him.
“He (Martin) saw my gun and told me he would kill me, and I knew he was telling the truth. I mean, was not playing,” he told the station. “I asked him to stop …. And the young man did not care. Continued attacking … I knew he would not stop even though I knew that someone had seen and the police are coming. He did not care. When you hit your head repeatedly against the concrete, you have a broken nose, eyes full of blood and tears, you’re not in the position to do much,” he said, insisting that his life was in danger by the young teen.
George Zimmerman goes on to say that he is in constant fear of his life, wearing a bulletproof vest when he goes out in public, and that he is also $2.5 in debt from the trial in which he was acquitted of murder charges against Trayvon Martin.
“Honestly, I [would] love to live a calm life without being in the press. I’d like [to be treated like] any American citizen — have a ticket … or an argument … [and] not have everyone aware,” he said. “But that … that’s my life and I do not understand why that is, but I’m living my life as I have always lived, ” he said.
