Robert Zimmerman Jr. speaks out to Geraldo Rivera
UNDATED (WSVN) -- Robert Zimmerman, Jr. talks with Geraldo Rivera about what life is like as the brother of George Zimmerman.
The former neighborhood watch captain admitted to shooting and killing Trayvon Martin in February.
The unarmed 17-year-old visiting Central Florida from Miami Gardens when Zimmerman thought he looked suspicious. After a confrontation, he said he shot Martin in self defense.
Robert confirmed a lawsuit over an edited portion of the 911 call. A change that made it appear as though Zimmerman volunteered the information that Martin was black.
"Somebody asked him to describe someone," said Zimmerman. "The way things were edited by NBC and others made it sound otherwise."
"So are you going to sue?" said Rivera. "Is George or the family going to sue NBC News?"
"That is George's suit," said Zimmerman. "It is not our family's suit. It has been confirmed."
While his brother awaits trial out on a $1 million bond, Zimmerman talked about parts of leaked evidvence in the case. Like the fact that Martin's DNA was not found on the gun.
Zimmerman said it doesn't change his brother's claim of self-defense.
"The kids DNA was not on the weapon," said Rivera. "Indicating that there was probably not a struggle for the weapon."
"Well I think that's exactly right," said Zimmerman. "It indicates that there probably was not a struggle for the weapon. And George, to my recollection has never said nor did I say on CNN or his father that there was a struggle for the weapon. You know in the end we have to put our trust in something. And our family, we're going to put our trust in the judicial system. He's in good hands."
