Should it be allowed to work?

The apology that George Zimmerman offered at his bail bond hearing yesterday was unjustifiable. It smacked of a ruse than saying that he was sorry for killing Trayvon Martin on the night of Feb. 26, 2012, when the two got into a fight.

The insinuation attached to the strange apology was that he did not know whether his victim was armed or not. How could anyone go about the streets thinking that everyone around was armed?

That was not ordinary with society, that more people go around carrying a gun or even some kind of a weapon, and it made no sense to use that as an excuse.

Unless one was faced with a situation, when there was a confrontation, where a person had his or her hand in his or her pocket, attempting to pull out a weapon and use it. One would then have the inkling to protect oneself and would go for one's own weapon.

The "apology" concocted by the defense lawyer, Mark O'Mara, was to distract the court from the real charge of second degree murder that a competent prosecutor with her team, has brought against his client.

At least, he was introducing leniency into the case for the charge to be reduced, right from the start; and that caused one of the lawyers of Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, to say that it (apology) was "the most disingenuous thing" in a case of that nature.

Zimmerman was not regretting that he has used his gun to kill an unarmed person, but just for using his gun, because he did not know, if Trayvon Martin was armed.

The defense lawyer made him do that, to trick the judge and the public that his client did not have any intention of killing Martin or even to use his gun.

It was natural for Martin's parents to be incensed by what went on in court, but they should be patient for the law to take its course; and also they must consider that they were lucky to have the support of many millions of people in the country and around the world, hoping for the best outcome of the case; that justice would be served in the end for their son, Trayvon Martin.

He would not have died in vain.
