Excerpts from Zimmerman's apology, testimony
The Sun News / The Associated Press ^ | April 20, 2012

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.....

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!

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 This is an outdated article.

Zimmerman shouldn't be appoligizing to anyone. He needs to keep his mouth shut and let the lawyer do the talking. I loved the Martin family response after bail was set. They don't believe in habeas corpus it seems

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.

  On ABC News, there was a caption underneath the bloody photo that called it an 'alleged' photo.

  If it had been posted on the White House website and it could be taken apart in layers in Adobe Illustrator, then it would have been a 'genuine' photograph of the back of George Zimmerman's head. Unfortunately, it's an actual photograph.

Wow. Alleged. I missed that. Those dirtbags. I really hope Z. sues all the media outlets who’ve slandered and libeled him.

Till this article, the most I’d heard about the hearing (other than clips of Zimmerman’s apology) was an attorney on Andy Parks show, who also said having Zimmerman testify/ apologize was brilliant legally.
