George Zimmerman popped up in a Univision television interview that is scheduled to air tonight. He told Univision that he is consistently fearing for his life, has PTSD and is $2 million in debt.
Zimmerman also rehashed the night that he got into the altercation with Trayvon Martin.
“He (Martin) saw my gun and told me he would kill me, and I knew he was telling the truth. I mean, was not playing. I asked him to stop and the young man did not care. Continued attacking. I knew he would not stop even though I knew that someone had seen (the fight) and the police are coming. He did not care.”
When asked if he should have waited for the police, Zimmerman didn’t answer and mentioned that the case was currently under investigation by the Department of Justice.
When asked if he thought he had done the right thing, Zimmerman had this to say: “in my mind and between God and me, I know that if I did not act the way I acted I would not be here.”
Zimmerman went on to say that he is living in constant fear for his life and now wears a bullet-proof vest and follows a safety plan for going out in public. He also doesn’t have a permanent residence.
He also revealed that the trial left him about $2.5 million in debt. He says that he has received several hundred thousand dollars worth of donations to offset the debt that was sustained by his high profile trial.
Zimmerman says that he owes his freedom to the people who donated because otherwise he would have not been able to pay for the experts and documents that were needed in the trial.
