July 18, 2013 — Trayvon Martin’s Parents Speak Out On “The Today Show”, Call On Obama To ‘Investigate’ Zimmerman — On Thursday, the parents of slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin, Tracy Martin and Sabrina Fulton, as well as family attorney Ben Crump, sat down for interviews with CBS, ABC and NBC. Speaking out for the first time since the verdict which found George Zimmerman not guilty of murdering their son, Travyon Martin’s parents expressed their shock in interviews with CBS This Morning, ABC’s Good Morning America, and NBC’s Today.
“I want America to know that Trayvon was a fun-loving child,” Tracy Martin told CBS’s Charlie Rose. “He was our child. We miss him dearly.”
“I thought surely that he would be found guilty of second degree murder — manslaughter at the least,” 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.”
“What would you like President [Barack] Obama to do?” Norah O’Donnell asked. Fulton replied that she would hope the federal government would “at least investigate” what happened the night her son died.
Jurors in the Trayvon Martin murder case will tell you that race had nothing to do with their verdict acquitting George Zimmerman of second-degree murder in the shooting death of the unarmed black teen in Sanford, Florida. Zimmerman—who is biracial and of white and Afro-Latino heritage, yet has played the role of white victim acting in self- defense against a black teen thug—was found not guilty by a nearly all-white jury of six women in the killing of Martin.
Some people are asking, what if the roles were reversed? What if Zimmerman was the shooting victim? Better yet, what if George Zimmerman had been a black man accused of shooting a white teen to death?

George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin never struggled on the ground

“As myself and a caller were discussing last Friday night on BTR News, Neither George Zimmerman or Trayvon’s clothing showed evidence of the life or death struggle Zimmerman claims occurred. I am also more inclined to believe that his little scratches and bloodied nose were self inflicted or inflicted by accomplices.
However, it is not relevant to disproving Zimmerman’s story about struggling while on his back and the witness who said he saw Zimmerman on his back lied. Grass, wet or dry, leaves grass stains, concrete tears up clothing or leaves visible marks.” – Scotty Reid, Black Talk Radio News
“Notice the state of Florida prosecuting attorneys did not attack the absence of signs of the struggle Zimmerman lied about. What does that mean? It means that the prosecution intentionally underperformed with the intent of a not guilty verdict. The prosecution even conceded the lie of Zimmerman being on the bottom when he shot Trayvon in the heart.
What’s NOT on the back of his jacket provides the TRUTH which is, Zimmerman was NOT on the bottom in the wet, muddy grass with his head being jammed into the sidewalk. The state of Florida is guilty of malpractice and violating Trayvon’s civil/human rights.” – West Thea, Afrisynergy
