George Zimmerman Guilty? Trayvon Martin Was Racially Profiled, Claims Former Friend

George Zimmerman is guilty of racially profiling Trayvon Martin, according to a former friend of Zimmerman.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, the so-called Trayvon Martin gun control laws have been losing to the expansion of the Stand Your Ground laws. Trayvon’s father Tracy Martin and mother Sybrina Fulton have also been traveling around giving speeches about gun control and in a recent speech Mr. Martin claimed Trayvon was a civil rights icon comparable to Emmett Till.

Frank Taaffe is a man once considered a friend of George Zimmerman. For example, in May of 2012 he even defended Zimmerman’s actions as a neighborhood watch volunteer:

“That George Zimmerman in a position in a volunteer role wanted to ensure the safety of the community he lived in and he became the victim.”

But now Taaffe says he has had a change of heart, and that he believes the jury should have found George Zimmerman guilty:

“What I know of George and his tendencies and also my opinion is that he racially profiled Trayvon Martin that night because if that had been a white kid on a cell phone, walking through our neighborhood, he wouldn’t have stayed on him the way he did and that’s a fact and I believe that in my heart. I can only ask for the country to forgive me and today I believe that he racially profiled him based on the color of his skin.”

When asked if he had anything to gain by making this sudden claim, Taffe said he was not working on a book or a TV show. Instead, Taffe says, “I’m just working on me right now and getting right with God.”

The reason Taaffe suddenly changed his mind was because of the deaths of his two sons over the last two years in addition to his brother passing away last month. He now has a message for Trayvon Martin’s parents:

“I’m sorry that you lost your son, I know what that’s like and I wish things had been different.”

What do you think about a former friend of George Zimmerman now saying he’s guilty?
