Jorge Rodriguez answers questions about his friend George Zimmerman’s response to the not guilty verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin, and whether or not Zimmerman has a history of racism and violence.
“This is so far from being racial, it’s not even funny,” Rodriguez says to CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo. “Just because he has a white last name and an African American was dead, automatically everyone assumes racial. This is far from being race. This is just a bad situation that happened.”
Rodriguez also discusses Zimmerman’s injuries after the fatal incident with Trayvon Martin.
“From knowing George and seeing the injuries, something happened that night where he had to protect his life. In which he did so," says Rodriguez.
