In a recent interview, George Zimmerman slammed president Obama for dereliction of duty” by using “racially charge comments,” dividing the public against him during his trail for the killing of Trayvon Martin.
“I feel that now is the perfect time to speak my mind without fear of retaliation by the president, the attorney general, the federal government etc.,” Zimmerman explained during an interview with his divorce lawyer. “Initially I was extremely alleviated. Quickly that turned into realization that the Department of Justice finding that there was no basis to pursue [federal] charges was just the beginning of a journey — my personal journey — to correct the wrongs that the federal government did. To ensure that it never happens to any innocent American ever again.”
“I believe God has his plans, and for me to second-guess them would be hypocritical, almost blasphemous,” he said referring to the confrontation that ended in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
“President Obama held his Rose Garden speech stating ‘if I had a son he would look like Trayvon,’” he explained. “To me, that was clearly a dereliction of duty pitting Americans against each other solely based on race.”
“It’s up to God and I put it all in his hands and I do have faith that whatever he has planned out for me is what’s best for me. So whatever he’s determined whatever he has planned out for me I am along for the ride and I just hope to be strong enough to see his will be done.”
