Mom Says Sons Death Was an Accident?
Less than 24 hours after Florida resident George Zimmerman was charged with second-degree murder for killing 17 year-old Trayvon Martin, the teenager's mother has stepped forward claiming she believes her son's death was accidental.
Trayvon Martin's mother Sybrina Fulton told the TODAY show Thursday that she believes her son's fatal shooting by George Zimmerman was an accident. "I believe it was an accident, I believe that it just got out of control and he couldn't turn the clock back," she said. "I would ask him, 'Did he know that that was a minor, that that was a teenager and that he did not have a weapon?'" she added. Martin's mom suggested that Zimmerman, who claims he killed Martin in self-defense, should apologize if he is remorseful.
"One of the things that I still believe in: A person should apologize when they really -- when they are actually remorseful for what they've done," Fulton said. "I understand his family is hurting, but think about our family that lost our teenage son.
I mean, it's just very difficult to live with day in and day out. I'm sure his parents can pick up the phone and call him, but we can't pick up the phone and call Trayvon anymore." (MSNBC)
Do you agree with Trayvon's Mom. Did George Z accidently kill the un armed teen? Or was this premediated murder hiding behind the Stand Your Ground Lawand the self-appointed title of "Neighborhood Watch Captain"? Comment Below
