George Zimmerman’s Brother Speaks Out in Trayvon Martin Murder Case


In the latest addition to the Trayvon Martin murder case, shooter George Zimmerman’s brother Robert Zimmerman Jr. sat down with CNN to talk about the case and defend his brother’s name.

In the interview, Robert states that he believes his brother’s defense story, even going as far to say that George was “out of breath” and “barely conscious.” He went on to say that “There would have been George dead if he had not acted decisively and instantaneously in that moment when he was being disarmed.”

George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, said he shot Trayvon Martin in self defense after the teen attacked him last month. Zimmerman has yet to be charged, due to lack of proof to detest his story that he acted out of self defense.
