George Zimmerman is back in the news.
In a video statement, Zimmerman answered questions posed to him by his lawyer – many of which involving Barack Obama, the man he once supported.
He brings up Obama's infamous Rose Garden speech, in which he said if he “had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin.”
“For him to make incendiary comments, as he did, and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution he, by far, overstretched, overreached, even broke the law in certain aspects, to where you have an innocent American being prosecuted by the federal government, which should never happen,” Zimmerman said.
Zimmerman's lawyer also asked him how Obama should have acted when speaking about the case.
“The President should have done what he said he was going to do and not interject himself in a local law enforcement matter, or a state matter, and waited until the facts came out. Instead rushing to judgment and making racially charged comments and pitting American against American. He should have taken the high road, given his position, and been an example, been a leader as the President should be and say, ‘let’s not rush to judgment,’ as I’m sure he would want that same luxury afforded to him if he was accused of something.”
