Remember Frank Taaffe? He was George Zimmerman‘s best friend and former so-called neighborhood watch partner who defended Zimmerman to the end when the latter was charged with the killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. But now Taaffe has changed his tune. He thinks that he had it all wrong during the trial and that Zimmerman was lying.

Taaffe said that he is working on his faith and relationship with God following a major loss in his family.

Taaffe told reporters: “What I know of George and his tendencies and also my opinion is that he racially profiled Trayvon Martin that night because if that had been a white kid on a cell phone, walking through our neighborhood, he wouldn’t have stayed on him the way he did and that’s a fact and I believe that in my heart.”

I can only ask for the country to forgive me and today I believe that he racially profiled him based on the color of his skin,” Taaffe continued.

Back during the Trayvon Murder trial, Taaffe sparked a lot of conversation about the trial when he said at the time that “George did not surveil just one group of people. You’re asking if George profiled one group of people in my mind. And George looked at the whole landscape when he surveilled our property. It just so happened that the prior eight burglaries were perpetrated by young black males.”

Taaffe also expressed his condolences the Martin family, saying, “I’m sorry that you lost your son, I know what that’s like and I wish things had been different.”
