Mark O’Mara and Don West, who have gone on a media tour following Zimmerman’s acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin, seemed to know going in that they were not in an especially friendly venue. Whereas previous appearances found them gloating about the outcome of the trial, they were relatively subdued and restrained with Goldberg, Barbara Walters, and guest host Dan Abrams.
Goldberg first asked…
“If George Zimmerman is on his back on the ground, why wouldn’t George just hit him and knock him off him?” she asked. “Because I don’t understand the need to shoot and kill him. See, because, to me, when you kill somebody, there’s an issue.”
When West started to describe the extent of the fight, Goldberg said…
“He was able to get his hand out. He was able to move the gun this way. If he was able to do that, why could he have not…hit him in the kidneys?”
Later, the attorneys were discussing the possibility of a federal civil rights investigation into the case. Watch the videos below.
