George Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, delivered closing remarks on Friday as the jury prepares to begin deliberations as to his culpability in the 2012 murder of Trayvon Martin. “There was some anger and hostility, and ill-will, and spite maybe that night,” O’Mara conceded in his opening remarks. “George Zimmerman,” he added, “was the victim of it.”
“Unfortunately, you know, there was some anger and hostility, and ill-will, and spite maybe that night,” O’Mara told the jury. “It just had nothing to do with George Zimmerman.”
O’Mara corrected himself, noting that this hostility did involve Zimmerman. “He was the victim of it,” O’Mara said.
“You can’t look at those pictures and say that what was visited upon George Zimmerman was not evidence of ill-will or spite and hatred,” he concluded.
