George Zimmerman’s defense attorney Mark O’Mara spoke to CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo about the public’s reaction to the not-guilty verdict, if Zimmerman regrets killing Trayvon Martin, Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law and racial profiling.
“… George had an absolute right to be where he was and he had a right to see where Trayvon Martin was,” O’Mara says. “People want to say it was improper profiling, but the reality is I think George had a reason to be concerned. It was Trayvon Martin who was the aggressor, at least by the forensic evidence, because Trayvon Martin did not receive any injuries, but the gunshot 45 seconds after George Zimmerman was screaming for help. So I understand people's frustrations, but it would seem to be that Trayvon Martin overreacted to what he perceived to be something going on, and he overreacted in a violent way.”
Later in the interview, O’Mara defends self-defense claim.
