Quran Burning Pastor to Defend George Zimmerman in Sanford

Terry Jones blames the media coverage for painting Zimmerman as guilty
The pastor who made headlines last year when he held a "Quran Burning Day" is making himself the center of attention again.
Zimmerman, who remains free, shot and killed unarmed 17-year-old black teenager Trayvon Martin on Feb 26. The killing has sparked a national outrage and calls for Zimmerman's arrest through protests across the country.
The radical pastor will be holding a rally outside of the Seminole County Criminal Courthouse on April 21st, according to the Sanford Herald.
Jones claims the media has painted a man who hasn't been proven guilty as guilty already. He also said the point of this rally was to "support Zimmerman's constitutional rights."
Close to a dozen black pastors and leaders have met with Justice Department officials about Jones' scheduled rally.
