George Zimmerman has made his first public comments since the Department of Justice announced that no charges against him would be filed. In other words, the three-year-old investigation was officially closed.
Zimmerman is known as the Florida Neighborhood Watch volunteer who killed unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin in February 2012, which sparked countless civil rights demonstrations across the country.
In a video interview, Zimmerman addressed grievances with his Tampa divorce lawyers at Ayo and Iken PLC, saying that President “Barack Hussein Obama” should have said, "'Let's not rush to judgement.'"
"For him to make incendiary comments as he did and direct the Department of Justice to pursue a baseless prosecution, he by far over-stretched, over-reached," Zimmerman added.
Zimmerman also pointed out that he's not as naive as some believe he is.
In response to whether or not he's the same man from five years ago, Zimmerman struck back.
"Absolutely not," he continued. "I have to have my guard up. I still believe that people are truly good at heart, as Anne Frank has said, and I will put myself in any position to help another human in any way I can."
The interview, conducted in Orlando by Howard Iken, is thirteen-minutes long and can be watched in full here
