On Thursday's episode of "Piers Morgan Tonight," the program continued it's coverage of the Trayvon Martin case, by inviting Robert Zimmerman Jr. in for a sit down interview.
The brother of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer accused of shooting the Florida teen, Zimmerman Jr. explained a side of the story that depicts Martin as the aggressor:
"Trayvon Martin somehow snuck up on him," said Zimmerman Jr. "He [George] prevented his firearm from being taken from him, and used against him. And that's called saving your life."
As the candid and revealing interview continued, Zimmerman Jr. told Morgan that his brother was defending his own life after sustaining bodily harm:
"You return force with force when somebody assaults you. George was out of breath, he was barely conscious, his last thing he remembers doing was moving his head from the concrete to the grass so that if he 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."
