George Zimmerman, who's charged with second-degree murder for the killing of unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin, gave his first TV interview on Wednesday, on Fox News. Zimmerman told Fox's Sean Hannity he's "sorry that this happened" and regrets that his actions "polarized and divided America." But when Hannity asked him if he would have done anything differently, he said no, "I feel that it was all God's plan, and for me to second guess it or judge it...." That part elicited an angry response from Martin's family: "We must worship a different God," said Tracy Martin, Trayvon's father, "because there is no way that my God would have wanted George Zimmerman to kill my teenage son."
