Piers Morgan interviewed Robert Zimmerman Jr., the brother of Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman, on his CNN show tonight (video below), reports

Morgan confronted Zimmerman about his recent tweets on Twitter, which compared Martin to De’Marquise Kareem Elkins, who is accused of shooting a 13-month-old baby in the head.

Morgan said it was “gruesome” to compare the alleged child murderer Elkins to Martin, a shooting victim: “You cannot make that analogy without people saying you’re a racist.”

Zimmerman complained about the media publishing "negative" pictures about his brother and claimed that his main point of comparing Martin to Elkins was that the media assumed an unfair presumption of guilt in his brother’s case, even though his brother has admitted to shooting Martin.
