George Zimmerman criticizes Pres. Obama, says he 'can't feel guilty' for killing Trayvon Martin
George Zimmerman is speaking out for the first time since the Department of Justice cleared him of civil rights violations.
The message is clear: He’s not sorry.
Zimmerman maintained that his actions in shooting Trayvon Martin were justified and that he would not have done anything differently, claiming that he would have wanted something to change only if he felt there was something he could have done to save both their lives.
“Only in a true life-and-death scenario can you have mental clearness to know that you cannot feel guilty for surviving,” he said.

He went on to blame “President Barack Hussein Obama” for stirring up racial tensions during his trial and for “pitting Americans against each other based solely on race.”
When asked if he was the same person now as he was before the trial, he responded, “Absolutely not. I have to have my guard up significantly:
I have to look over my shoulder on a daily basis several times a day. I don’t get to spend time with my family, .… my mentor. I do try and keep my ideals the same. I do try and remain pragmatic because despite it all 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.
