Posted on 04/20/2012 3:18:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In an unusual move, George Zimmerman took the witness stand Friday to apologize to the parents of Trayvon Martin for fatally shooting their 17-year-old son. Assistant prosecutor Bernardo de la Rionda took the opportunity to grill the neighborhood watch volunteer about some of the statements he made to police.
Here's a partial transcript of Zimmerman's testimony:
Zimmerman: I wanted to say I am very sorry for the loss of your son. I did not know how old he was. I thought he was a little bit younger than I am, and I did not know if he was armed or not.....

Actually he's not and it won't. Your article was written on 4/10, it's old news and everyone is beyond that now..........
That's obviously why you're not a defense attorney since you would not have a choice, that is what prosecutors do. And that's why you also have a court of law to dispute whatever the prosecutor offers.......
Just like in the Duke case. Only investigate that which suits your end result.
In other words, devoid of mens rea.
Let me guess ... 'cause I just got back from an 8 day vacation ... is Zimmerman our new FReeper hero and thou shalt not criticize?
Don't get me wrong. I don't much care how this pans out. But he opened himself up for a beatdown today - not two weeks ago. Just making an observation.
Patterns of behavior.
Zimmerman did not have to go along with the notion and let the prosecutor steamroll him.
I hope that helps him in the long run.
He is coming across as trusting (perhaps to a fault IMHO).
He certainly isn’t coming off as a predator.
Absolutely not! But if you're attempting to make a critical observation on Mr. Zimmerman's current behavior then do yourself a favor, use current news...........
That'll cut down on challenges to you and prevent yourself from having to defend your statements. Easy, isn't it?

And another thing! NEENER! NEENER! NEENER!
If you want off my ping list get over it!
Buford, that was before the prosecutor filed her 2nd degree charges. While these two attorneys were holding their press conference, Zimmerman (or his family) was retaining one of FL’s top criminal defense attorneys, O’Mara. This is an outdated article.
50 and a half post???? What?
Okay, I see your point. Just read this:
Better than the sound bites I’ve been getting on TV.
fr mail :)
Neener - Neener to you too! LOL
I think that picture of the bloody head was the most influential thing held back by someone who just wanted the entire situation to explode...they succeeded!
Could it be that some people just wanted a chance to visit Florida during the beautiful weather? LOL
That girl looks so much like a friend of mine it is scary.
Look at the next post (after fifty It should be 51 but it is 50 1/2). Actually addessed comment to that post but your name appeared in the TO slot.....Hmmmm?
That is unusual. I’ll have to ask someone about that. :)
