George Zimmerman bursts from the shadows as he releases his first statement since his acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin. He recorded a video of himself answering questions that were asked by his lawyer, Howard Iken, in what looked to be the attorney’s office.
Zimmerman, with the apparent blessing of Iken, went so far as to accuse Obama of breaking the law when he tasked the Department of Justice to pursue him:
“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 also pressed Obama to recognize that his life matters just as much as anyone’s.
“He held a ceremony at the White House, inviting the Martin-Fulton Family, and stating that they should take the day to reflect upon the fact that all children’s lives matter. Unfortunately for the President, I am also my parents’ child and my life matters as well.”
