Recently, George Zimmerman has been making interview rounds to whine about how much he misses the life he had before he stalked and murdered an unarmed teenager. In an interview with Univision, Zimmerman revealed that the act of viciously killing a young boy has caused him to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Once again, Zimmerman pushed his claim that Martin attacked him despite that the evidence presented during the trial told a different story. Zimmerman says that he wishes he could have a normal life–like he had when Trayvon Martin was alive.
Zimmerman has recently been assisting his right wing supporters’ efforts to demonize the President by claiming that Barack Obama only spoke out in condemnation of Zimmerman’s actions because POTUS simply wanted to win more votes.
Despite all that has happened since the moment that Zimmerman was told to stay in his car, to not follow Trayvon Martin, and to not engage him, Trayvon Martin’s killer maintains his claim to victimhood.
In his media rounds, Zimmerman told Fusion TV’s Derrick Ashong that despite his numerous demonstrations of his anger control problems, he does not have anger control problems. Zimmerman is offended that the prosecution characterized him as a child murderer simply because he murdered a child. “All they got out of me was a blink,” Zimmerman told Ashong. Zimmerman is afraid that the people who want to kill him will succeed, he told Ashong, mirroring Trayvon Martin’s likely concerns as Zimmerman was stalking him.
The would-be boxing legend says that he is deeply concerned that the government does not act against those who he perceives as a threat, because he doesn’t “think that’s America.”
After interviewing Zimmerman, Ashong penned a column explaining why he interviewed George Zimmerman.

I sat down across from him and politely asked the questions I wanted answers to. And maybe I simply wanted to look in the eyes of the killer and see if I could perceive an ounce of remorse. I found none. Instead, I saw a man convinced that indeed, he is the victim. And, perhaps, even a hero.”[/box]
Ashong says that he believes Zimmerman, “aided and abetted by a justice system that does not have equal regard for the lives of black and minority youth, and further empowered by self-defense laws that have given citizens of certain states an effective license to kill their neighbors, provided those neighbors are young, black and preferably unarmed,” got away with murder.
