On the announcement that George Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, Piers Morgan talked to Zimmerman's brother, Robert Zimmerman Jr. about the family's reaction.
Zimmerman Jr. remarked that the family was "devastated" with the charge and "have been living a somewhat altered reality for quite some time. And we have had to prepare ourselves for an outcome such as this."
He also expressed concern over his family's and his brother's safety since Martin was killed:
"For my family's safety, that being the first and foremost consideration in all of this, for my safety, you know, for joining you via satellite and not disclosing where I am, having lived like that, there were no winners in this already. And the only silver lining in all of this is that my brother is safe."
During the interview, Piers revisited the last interview he did with Robert Zimmerman Jr. noting Zimmerman stated, "if he [George] was banged one more time, he wouldn't be, you know, wearing diapers for the rest of his life and being spoon-fed by his brother."
Piers pointed out the implausibility of George Zimmerman being "one blow away from death" as evidence by the video footage of him within two hours after the shooting, "walking around the police station perfectly OK."
Robert Zimmerman adamantly defended his account and explained the video footage as a "disconnect" between reality and a public that wanted "to see blood."
"This is a series of not just physical but psychological injuries that are happening to someone. With a person who's 6'3" sitting on their chest, using his entire body weight to cover the mouth and nose, the broken nose, of the person who is screaming out for their life."
Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Robert Zimmerman Jr. talks openly about his brother's state of mind.
