Mainstream press and bloggers are criticizing George Zimmerman for claiming he was a "scapegoat" and a victim of a "miscarriage of justice" in an interview with "New Day" Monday. CNN's Erin McPike reports.
Here's some of the exchange between Chris Cuomo and Zimmerman:
Cuomo: What was the miscarriage of justice?
Zimmerman: The fact that two law enforcement entities stated that I had acted within the laws of our nation, in self-defense.
Cuomo: You don't think it was about the law?
Zimmerman: I know it wasn't, yes.
Cuomo: And what does that make you? How do you, how does that make you feel?
Zimmerman: Like a scapegoat.
Cuomo: A scapegoat for…?
Zimmerman: The government, the President, the attorney general.
On this comment, one Washington Post blog said it shows "how delusional he is."
