George Zimmerman and His Divorce Lawyers Release Video to Show ‘Who I Really Am’

George Zimmerman and his divorce attorneys have released a video “interview” as part of a public relations effort to combat the public’s negative image of the Florida resident since his acquittal in the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

The 22-minute long film, produced by the Law Firm of Ayo and Iken, shows Zimmerman talking to a camera, hoping to “show America who I truly am.” An off-camera voice asks him to clarify questions about his ethnic make-up, his personal life, and his past good deeds.

Zimmerman describes how he once mentored a young black boy; recalls an experience from his time behind bars; and admits that he fears for his life following last summer’s controversial second-degree murder trial.

The video is meant to “represent a view [of Zimmerman] that is unfiltered by the media.”

Even though the lawyers want this video to combat mainstream media narratives, they make it very difficult to disseminate the footage. So to watch the full video, you have to go to their site here.
