George Zimmerman, accused of second-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, told a television interviewer Wednesday that he would not have changed the circumstances leading up to the shooting and that he viewed the entire incident as "God's plan."
Earlier in the interview, when Hannity asked Zimmerman if he regretted the specific actions of carrying a gun or getting out of his car to follow Martin that February night, the neighborhood watchman said that he didn't.
"I feel that it was all God's plan, and for me not to second guess it or judge it," he said, trailing off.

You know what I find hilarious and ironic. How many people that have complained on here about the entire Zimmerman and Trayvon tragedy, yet these threads continue to pop up and people continue to eat up the bigotry in them. You know, if you want this whole issue to go away, then you ignore it. The only way to make something go away is to not acknowledge it. I, personally, am sick and tired of these Zimmerman/Trayvon threads. It's garbage, and really, there are more pressing matters in this world than a man who shot and killed a teenager in (maybe) self-defense. You weren't there, neither was I, but people are way too clouded by emotional judgement rather than looking at facts and keeping a level-head about this issue.
It is ridiculous and I wish ATS were intelligent enough to see it for what it is and just let it go to the courts, while we focus on actual news and actual significant things that happen in this world (not just one isolated incident that happened months ago in Florida).
And yeah, this has been posted before.

I think he’s right - It was God's plan for him and everything happens for a reason.
And if he’s found guilty and sentenced to life in prison, that too will have been God’s plan for him.
He won't be, and everyone here is taking him out of context. He was just saying he didn't have any regrets. I wouldn't either if I was defending my life.
I am surprised it isn't obvious to everyone yet, that he is innocent of murder. I guess some people really want this case to be something that it is not (and the MSM appreciates those people very much).
