[VIDEO] Trayvon Martin’s Parents Speak Out About Zimmerman Verdict On “The Today Show”


It’s been 5 long days, and the parents of slain unarmed teen, Trayvon Benjamin Martin, have finally spoken publicly after the killer of their son walked away free. On the “The Today Show“, Sybrina Fulton, Tracy Martin, and the family’s attorney, Ben Crump sat down along with major news networks, NBC, CBS, & ABC to express their concern on how the jury settled on a not guilty verdict.


When asked how they felt, Tracy Martin stated:

“We’re still shocked, still in disbelief.” “I thought surely that he would be found guilty of second degree murder — manslaughter at the least,” Sybrina Fulton added. “I just knew that they would see that this was a teenager just trying to get home. This was no burglar. This was somebody — somebody’s son that was trying to get home.”

According to Juror B-37’s interview with Anderson Cooper on her accusation that Trayvon Martin was responsible for his own death, Fulton stated that the woman did not know her son and should not hold a teenager responsible for his actions over an adult.
