Roughly one week since the jury in the George Zimmerman trial delivered its "not guilty" verdict, on Monday the defendant found himself back in the news, and once again, a 911 call is very much at the center of the story.
However, unlike in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the intensions behind George Zimmerman's latest activities are without debate, as the 29-year-old man – along with four others – helped a family escape an overturned SUV.
Just four days after his acquittal, Zimmerman happened upon the scene, and offered his assistance amidst the very same Sanford, Fla. neighborhood and community where Martin's death occurred nearly 17 months ago.
Filling in for Piers Morgan, guest host Chris Cuomo asked attorney Mark O'Mara for his reaction to his client's latest activities:
“This is quintessential George. This is the person who I knew him to be when I found out about his past before February 12. Just a guy who’s always involved in the community, always willing to, you know, lend a helping hand," O'Mara told Cuomo, as part of a live interview. "And, here we go, four days after the event, something that I could not have planned, but turned out to be just pure George.”
Digging back into the essence of the case, and the nationwide reaction that came as a result, Martin responded to the comments issued by Barack Obama from late last week:
“If you look at just the sound bite, I think it was inappropriate to suggest that thirty-five years ago, Trayvon could have been him or whatever," said the attorney, joining the program from Florida via satellite. "But, if you look at the complete context of what the president said, I think what he was acknowledging was that we still do have some issues of race, and the way there is a divide between the country, still. And, it’s a conversation that we need to have.”
