In Florida -- Georgia Zimmerman murder trial the Florida man claiming self defense in the killing of seventeen year old teenager -- bond.
Martin -- -- brother is speaking now.
Blasting the media in part for what he says -- putting their own spin on the case here he was yesterday in court.
I have no doubt that mr.
Lee the former chief of Sanford Florida.
Chief of police and the district attorney's office or state attorney's office is it is here.
-- like nothing more than to find any trader ounce of probable cause that they could have used to charge Stewart with any crime.
In -- on nine and then it became politicized and unfortunately a political calculation was made senator on the politics of race and the -- was to file.
So that was yesterday Robert Zimmerman junior is -- -- -- brother my guest here in studio in new York and good morning to you good morning bill -- -- get to that report in a moment here you also said yes in this state -- not be able to meet its burden.
Absolutely what do you mean -- this is an improper charge -- it's a charge that should have never happened you know I think the people who were.
Acting ethically and honoring their -- from the very beginning and did not bring forth charges.
Where honoring their and they were honorable people and I think that that.
Chief of police at the time the former chief now believe -- the state attorney's office would have -- nothing more than probable cause.
To be able to charge short with a crime if in fact the crime had been committed.
Not only did they find this was not murdered they found that no crime had happened at all what you you -- prosecution has to either prove murder.
Or has to prove.
That he did not act actually my understanding not act -- -- to fit right handers well they have my understanding is that it's in fact they have to prove that it is a murder and then they have to prove that it is not possible.
That he acted in self otherwise your brother walks free corrects -- -- Couple things you've done in the past several months through a lot of media attention to you.
-- had quite a response yesterday in court yesterday you regret what you did back in March.
On your Twitter account that seemed to suggest yeah -- hint of racism.
I I I I don't know that it's racism I think I had to learn how to use Twitter in a very public.
Sphere I made a mistake -- apologize -- and I think that I'm not going to be tweeting obviously what once in various -- -- because I think it's -- appropriately do you think you hurt your brother at all.
Hard to tell I don't think so I think if we narrow the scope of of the events that transpired that night you know down to those five or six minutes hours or so.
We will we will get a clearer picture in court court has this amazing way of putting filters on this is not about the defendant's brother or anybody else this is about to lives -- intersected.
And that and in very straightforward act of self -- some of the defense you have on on your behalf of your brother's behalf is that he had a broken nose and that he had a bloody head.
Right -- did you think that helps his case and if so by how much I think it helps I think it's very telling that you had.
Megyn Kelly had Alan Dershowitz on saying that if he were the prosecutor who had filed that affidavit he would be getting an attorney.
And I think that it was telling that in the first bond hearing it was revealed that the state of Florida never bothered to inquire or two.
Get the medical records set proved George had a broken nose you know and I think that I went out and piers Morgan asset medical records will confirm he was attacked his nose was broken and I was called a liar.
And George has been called a liar.
I think it's great that he got to meet the jurors.
He's a real person he's a real person -- mentioned -- sensitive and caring and he's on a mythological monster as he's been made out to be and he's in very good hands but all of the evidence that.
Kind of counters this notion that mr.
Martin was not a person who was capable of injuring him to the extent that he did.
It's gonna play very well in his favor you know I mean there's there's one.
Observer who says you can put all the issues of of race in society to decide.
What the jurors have to figure out as what happened that night for and you have that 182 clip of someone yelling help.
Right which will be absolute critical and essential to jurors as they deliberate this now.
If they determine that's the voice of trade on Martin.
Is your brother stand a chance -- you know right now we're still.
We're awaiting the conclusion of what's called a Frye hearing to determine if expert testimony is going to be allowed at all and there's also going to be the judges gonna make a decision -- one way -- the other.
Right and in addition to determination -- those tapes will be a lot of on the reason those tapes are so contentious is that it's.
Clear to those who you sciences the standard that it is.
Including the FBI and the -- Florida it's pretty much impossible to tell over a scream.
Who is screaming scream isn't a normal voice speech is different and scream.
And I think that came forth in the Frye hearing it in the Jersey you have to figure that out if indeed they're allowed to have access that evidence I have to go but how is your brother doing he appears to be larger than we last saw him I is he helped us.
Well you know.
Being overweight is not healthy I think the stress that this is uncanny and I think that everybody responds to stress in a different way I lost -- -- picked up smoking as a habit it's which is terrible.
And George -- away.
