My sincere condolences to you I haven't -- chance to speak with you about the loss of yourself.

I'm sure that you watch the interview in its entirety and so you saw that there was an apology moment from George Zimmerman.
To you and -- others I want you have a chance to listen to that and then respond.
I would tell them they can I'm sorry.
I don't have -- my wife and I don't have any children.
Fuse that I love more than life and love -- more than myself.

It was a different.
And unique -- -- love that I have with time.
And I love my children even though they weren't born yet.
And I am sorry.

Sabrina and Tracy after hearing that apology directed to you what is your response back to George Zimmerman.
-- I personally don't feel like -- here.
-- I just feel like he's just saying anything that he wants to and is not sincere is not coming from his heart.
Again -- fulfill -- -- it was sincere either.
Tourism and had -- -- -- to apologize to us we'll take in the life of us.
Before the first wrist.
And come and try to publicly apologize now.
He's just trying to save face.
I want you to listen to another thing that he sad because he was asked by Sean Hannity whether or not he had any regrets with the way in which the night played out back in February.
Here was his response.
Is -- anything you regret.
Do you regret getting out of the car to -- -- on that night.
No sir do you regret that you you had a -- that night news from do you feel you wouldn't be here for this interview if you didn't have -- No sir I did you feel you would not be here I feel that it will solve God's plan and for me to second guess the judges.
Is there anything you might do differently in retrospect of the time has passed a little bit.
So Sabrina and -- when you heard that it was part of God's plan in -- -- mind.
Wouldn't you think.
Having lost -- what he was -- -- saying that it was gospel and that he murdered our child.
And I really don't understand what god he wore shoes because not saying -- that I worship.
-- And why would god have him -- -- on and on arm teenager.
I mean it just makes no sense so.
What planned visit -- what I mean.
That's just that's that's -- this to save it that was God's plan that he took ourselves life.
Of course George -- claim is that he acted in self defense.
I want to take you to the moment of the interview where he describes.
What he says happened that night.
Sort of fashion my head into these concrete sidewalk.
Com I was -- he broke my nose I was Utah started yelling for help how many times would you estimate that he punched him.
-- -- -- More than a dozen.
-- you're the attorney forward -- on Martin's parents as a lawyer does that sound like self defense.
We have all this evidence that state attorneys is gonna keep this you as a gift when they go to cross examine jars government.
And that is his version.
Trey -- isn't here to tell his version would happen.
And -- everybody in America was -- majority Zimmerman has credibility is at issue.
In what way.
Where you have all the things that he's -- to the court.
There you have so many inconsistencies.
That he's still graduate we don't have enough time -- your show to go through all the inconsistencies.
But we need only look at this court's order to talk about -- -- -- -- -- credibility.
And -- thinks he's saving Cortland to bond here.
One has credibility.
Because it's his version the only person that's entry -- let you know there's no -- objective evidence saying that.
And we you look at objective evidence vs subject of evidence and when you have Romo.
That's subject to Jordan -- versions are not consistent with the objective evidence that.
One of the things you may be pointing -- was whether or not trade on Martin was.
Running walking skipping.
I want you to hear another part of the interview where George -- -- Zimmerman explains.
You said to the on the on the nine won't call that -- is running.
He said that's of the dispatched maybe -- -- -- running -- more -- -- yes.
It's like skipping and going away quickly.
But he wasn't.
Running out of fear.
You can tell the difference.
He wasn't running he was -- he wasn't actually running you know some papers that's what you said that the dispatcher as you thought it was right.
You're talking about mr.
-- Yes ma'am and that is so crucial because we here.
Good mammoon weren't conversation he has.
We'll operator and you remember recognize however he sheltered Rahman and heart he gave a written statement and these and -- reinstatement he got out the car.
To -- -- as well we know.
From listening to that now won't want to take.
Then he's oh in each other explicit word -- -- he's getting away and that's when we hear the William will slim and we hear the pursue.
And so just this room with you don't it is.
We ever think -- -- or local or in them all.
Which is Latin for the -- -- sale just this Marchionne years.
Okay George terminal so many of you said that he said the word punk but he had been accused of saying something else that may have been.
Thought of as racial before I go -- I wanna get Sabrina and -- thoughts on this.
Because he extended the apology to you and we got your comments -- that earlier.
Would you ever find it in your heart to forgive this man.
Not scientists was murdered a couple of months ago so.
It's not something that I can really stomach right now I mean maybe in a few years.
I don't nobody is just really difficult right now.
To actually face and sit in the same -- -- somebody to have murdered my son.
Great it is just objectives but there's too much to -- but what's so forgive the -- that.
Don't even regret taken office life.
Just access to forgive -- -- -- mean there's there's there's too much.
