George Zimmerman is on the top of Oprah Winfrey's current list of people she would like to interview. A month after a shooting that claimed the life of Trayvon Martin, the host of "Oprah's Next Chapter" expressed her interest to have a sitdown with the man behind the tragic incident.

"Mr. Zimmerman... I would love to talk to him," the former daytime talk-show queen stated in an interview with Extra. She further shared her thought on the incident, "It is a tragedy and it is a shame that we're sitting here 33 days later and there hasn't been an arrest, or questioning of what actually happened. It's a tragedy and it is a shame and we all know it."

On people's reactions that she read on Twitter, the 58-year-old commented, "I saw some people on Twitter saying nothing has changed, the same thing's going on. Lots has changed and you know why? Because black people, white people, brown, yellow people all over this country and all over the world are saying the same thing... It's a tragedy and it's a shame and justice needs to be served."

Martin was shot to death on February 26 in Sanford, Florida by Zimmerman, a community watch coordinator, while on his way to the home of his father's girlfriend. Zimmerman claimed he noticed suspicious behavior from the teenage boy and there was a physical altercation which ended with the 28-year-old man shooting unarmed Martin.

Hmm, I thought you had to be convicted in a court to be a "Murderer" remember OJ didn't do it. Courts said so! The editor is an bias idiot.

Putting a murder on tv to get ratings would be an atrocious act by Oprah. And yes I'm sure she'll argue that she's just trying to get the truth out there. Don't do it Oprah.

If George Zimmerman “had his hand up to his forehead” and seemed worried, is it possible he called his father for advice on what to tell the police? Could he have called him on that same cell phone he called 911 about Trayvon Martin? To be sure, Judge Zimmerman knows a thing or two about the facts that make out a self defense case. He certainly has plead a good case in the media -- though he was also careful not to tell us what his son told him and thus keep the prosecutors from impeaching him with conflicting stories. No matter, they can still call the Judge himself to the grand jury room and asked him where he got his facts. They can also ask him if he talked to the police that night, or if he went down to the station house in person to take care of things. Judge Zimmerman has been presumed to be a non-player thus far, but may have played a critical role at the initial stages of the investigation -- that important time when the police decide whom to charge, and what to write in their reports to justify their actions.
