Zimmerman should pretend to be sorry Trayvon Martin is dead. Even if he isn't sorry, he should have the decency to say he is sorry.
That would seem to be the smart thing to do, wouldn't it? I thought the interview granted to the media by Z's father, the retired Virginia Supreme Court judge, also showed a remarkable lack of discernment, given that he expressed not the slightest sympathy toward the family of the dead child shot by his son. Had it been me, I would have first of all acknowledged how terrible the loss of their son must be for the Martins, and expressed my sincerest sympathies. Then I would have gone on to say that, despite this, my son was not a murderer, but someone acting in self defense, and that I had every faith he would be found non-culpable in the tragic death of Trayvon Martin. Instead, he went about trashing the victim, and stating as fact things he couldn't possibly know first hand, such as what Martin said to his son prior to the shooting.
GZ's website also shows an incredibly tin ear for how he might best posture himself before the court of public opinion. This case has taken an extremely weird turn.
