All you have to say is, “Of course I wish it had never happened.” Or maybe just a simple “yes.” But Zimmerman couldn’t bring himself to do it when asked repeatedly by Chris Cuomo.

“Do you regret that you killed Trayvon Martin?” Cuomo asked.

“Unfortunately, the Department of Justice is conducting a civil rights investigation,” Zimmerman said. “Certainly, I think about that night and I think my life would be tremendously easier if I stayed home.”

Cuomo repeatedly asked Zimmerman if both he and Martin would be alive today if he could alter how the events of that night unfolded. “That’s a presumption I can’t make,” Zimmerman said.
