Zimmerman speaks out about Trayvon Martin
George Zimmerman is opening up about the night he killed Trayvon Martin.
Seven months after he was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter in Martin's death, Zimmerman sat down to talk with CNN's Chris Cuomo about the case.
Zimmerman maintains that he acted in self-defense within the law when he shot the florida teenager during a confrontation.
However he says he does regret going out that night.
Cuomo: Do you regret that night? Do you have regrets about it?
Zimmerman: Certainly I think about that night, I think my life would be tremendously easier if I had stayed home.
Cuomo: (If you could go back, you would've stayed home that night.)
Zimmerman: Certainly, yes, in hindsight? Absolutely.
The Department of Justice is investigating any civil rights violations in the case, but says charges aren't expected.
