Full Interview: George Zimmerman's Exclusive Interview With Sean Hannity
This was re-broadcast today on Fox News. George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing Florida teen Trayvon Martin, gave an exclusive interview to Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity. Also sitting down for the interview was Zimmerman's attorney Mark O'Mara. In the first part of the interview, Zimmerman discussed what he calls a "tragic" situation in recounting the night of the shooting. Zimmerman first described the incident that spurred him to become a community watchman, saying, "In August of 2011, there was a home invasion. A young lady was home with her nine-month-old baby, and they broke in her sliding glass door. She barricaded herself in the upstairs bedroom, and my wife was home by herself. She saw the people that burglarized her run through our backyard with their belongings. Even though my wife wasn't certain what happened, that was enough to scare her, shake her up. I promised her I would do what I could to keep her safe." Zimmerman revealed that he carried a weapon with him at all times, except when he was at work, and contended that he had never heard of the Stand Your Ground law until after the shooting.
