This Week With George Stephanopoulos

March 28, 2012 by staff 

This Week With George Stephanopoulos, George Zimmerman remains in hiding, but his friend and legal advisor each appeared on national television news shows Monday morning and defended the Neighborhood Watch captain who fatally shot teenager Trayvon Martin.

Joe Oliver told Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos that Zimmerman is not a racist.

“This is a guy that you would trust with your life,” Oliver said of Zimmerman.

Oliver said investigators told Zimmerman to not discuss the case, and that Zimmerman, who has claimed he shot Trayvon in self-defense, thought he was doing the right thing.

And because of it, Oliver said, Zimmerman “virtually lost his life now.”

Oliver also appeared on NBC News’ TODAY show, where he told co-host Ann Curry that Zimmerman reportedly cried for days after the Feb. 26 shooting in a gated Sanford community.

Meanwhile, Zimmerman’s legal advisor, Craig Sonner, told Curry that the 28-year-old suffered a broken nose and injury on the back of his head during the altercation with 17-year-old Trayvon.
