The former neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted of murder for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin says he's trying to be a good person and that he thinks he can help others after what he has gone through.
George Zimmerman said in a videotaped conversation with his divorce attorneys that he's trying to figure out who he is. The video was released by the attorneys to the public on Wednesday.
Zimmerman says he's trying to be a faithful family man but realizes that everything he does, good or bad, is heavily scrutinized.
Zimmerman was acquitted last summer of all charges for fatally shooting the 17-year-old Martin in a gated community where he lived.
The trial raised questions about race and gun control laws.
The video release comes a day after Zimmerman's parents, Robert and Gladys Zimmerman, announced they were suing Roseanne Barr for invading their privacy when she posted their home address on Twitter nearly two years ago.
