Last night George Zimmerman sat down with Fox News’ Sean Hannity for his first ever interview since he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman talks about the events that night that led up to him killing Trayvon Martin.
Check out the entire interview after the cut:
(NewsOne)-Sticking to his reported story, Zimmerman told Hannity in his first televised interview that after Martin approached him, Martin punched him in the face and immediately broke his nose while Zimmerman was allegedly responding to his question:
“He asked me what my [f*cking] problem was. I was wearing my green jacket, and I put my cell phone in it as opposed to my jean’s pocket. I was reaching down to call 911 again, and that’s when he punched me.”
Hannity asked, “He asked you, ‘What’s your problem?’”
“Yes, he said, ‘Do you have a problem, what’s your problem?’ I reached for my phone, as I said, and he hit me and broke my nose.”
Hannity then asked Zimmerman how he ended up on the ground:
“I don’t remember if he pushed me on the ground, but I ended up on the ground. He continued to punch me in the head, several more than a dozen times.”
Hannity then asked Zimmerman at what point did he fear for his life. Zimmerman responded that he feared for his life at the point that Martin wouldn’t stop hitting his head on the ground, “In hindsight, I’d [say it was] when he was slamming my head in to the concrete.”
Hannity asked Zimmerman if Martin was talking with him during the beating. According to Zimmerman, it was then that Martin allegedly told him that he was going to die, “Yes, he was cursing, telling me to shut up and then telling me he was going to kill me.”
According to Hannity, police could hear someone screaming out a total of 14 times. Not surprisingly, Zimmerman claims that the screams were coming from him, because he wanted the police to find him, “Yes, I believe from what the investigators told me, he knew I was talking to the police and I was yelling so they could find me,” Zimmerman said.
Finally, Hannity gets Zimmerman to discuss Martin’s final moments before he pulled the trigger,”At that point, I realized that it was not my gun, it was not his gun, it was the gun. He said, “You are going to die tonight, muthaf*cka.” He took one hand off my mouth, and I felt his hand going down to my holster and I didn’t have any time.”
According to published reports, Zimmerman ended up shooting Martin with a single gunshot to the chest. Zimmerman claims that even after Martin was shot, he sat up and said something to the effect of, “You got it, or you got me…OK, you got the gun.”
Hannity then proceeded to ask Zimmerman whether he had any regrets about the night of February 26th:
“Is there anything that you regret?”
“Do you regret having a gun?”
“No, sir…I feel as though it was all in God’s plan.”
As for Trayvon Martin’s parents, Zimmerman said he would apologize to them if he got the chance:
“I would tell them that, again, I’m sorry.”
“My wife and I don’t have any children,” Zimmerman said in an excerpt released in advance of the airing. “I have nephews that I love more than life. I love them more than myself. And I know when they were born, it was a different unique bond and love that I have with them. And I love my children even though that they aren’t born yet.
“I am sorry that they buried their child. I can’t imagine what it must feel like. And I pray for them daily.”
