Skip to comments.Trayvon Martin: Mom says God will hold George Zimmerman accountable
Posted on 04/16/2012 11:15:17 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Trayvon Martins mother discusses her faith as a Christian in an interview Tuesday on Anderson. The same program features Mark OMara, the lawyer for George Zimmerman, who is charged with second-degree murder in Trayvons death. OMara says he hasnt discussed the night of the shooting with his client.
Anderson, featuring CNNs Anderson Cooper, airs at 2 p.m. weekdays on WESH-Channel 2. Judge Jeanine Pirro and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin will discuss the case with Cooper.
Sybrina Fulton, Trayvons mom, calls_herself a God-fearing woman who doesnt hate anyone.
I think a lot of people would find it hard not to hate somebody who had shot their son, Anderson Cooper says.
Im probably not like most people, Fulton says. I have a strong faith in God and I know that he sits high and looks low and that even if the justice system doesnt hold George Zimmerman accountable for what hes done, God will.
Cooper asks if she would be OK with Zimmerman getting bail.
I am going to let the justice system takes its course and thats just a regular process so we dont have any objections to it. Thats just a regular process, Fulton says.
OMara tells Cooper that he hasnt heard Zimmermans version of events.
We have discussed a few things but again I have a luxury of maintaining ignorance for another week or so, OMara says. I havent seen the information and I just think its a better conversation if I have all the information as I begin my conversation with my client.
Cooper asks: So when you say you havent seen the information you mean the prosecutor has not given you the facts that she has based on their fact finding?
OMara replies: Correct our rules suggest that I could get discovery beginning 15 days after arraignment....

Well, I agree that Zimmerman is accountable to God. So is Martin. So I Martin’s mom. So am I. We will all stand before God one day.
I think Mom (who sent the angelic Trayvon to stay with his biological father after he had been suspended for two weeks for a variety of things) knows or suspects the truth and would actually like to have this all go away. We haven’t heard the coroner’s report or any of the other evidence, but I’ll bet it would all corroborate Zimmerman’s story.
However, Mom knows she’s going to get grilled by the defense lawyer, and I think she’s concerned about this (as I would be, too). Her son was clearly out of control and going from bad to worse, and I don’t think she wants to deal with this.
I’d feel worse for her if she hadn’t run out to try to trademark his name, but since I once saw two people deciding to claim that one of them had slipped on a paper match (back in the day of the old book matches and smoking in public) at a checkout aisle and how much they were going to get from that store....I guess this is normal human nature.
I agree with Sybrina. For once.
Oh, good. For awhile I thought it was the Black Panthers.
Travon is heard from the grave???
Just... damn. The brazenness takes my breath away.
Shakespeare had it wrong. It's not the lawyers first - it's the media.
Same goes for you, exploit-Trayvon’s death lady.
Quick, Mom, go get that phrase copyrighted too so you can make more money off your son’s death.
How much information about Trayvon ‘sidetracked’ do you think the bench will permit? They’re going to make everything the defense brings up inadmissible.
This is the woman who trademarked her dead child’s name not a month after he was killed. Why should I listen to anything this woman has to say?
Lady, the Lord God will hold us all accountable for our words and deeds and thoughts and actions.
He’ll pay for them gold teeth!
I found myself astounded that this woman could jump in front of the cameras before her son’s body was even cold. Most mothers would be too grief stricken to speak to anyone, let alone the press.
Travon is heard from the grave???
Trayvon's mother has get a lawyer like John Edwards to transpond thoughts from the grave.
Actually I feel for her now, she seems to be a class act. Getting that trademark or web name could be keeping the name away from some really bad types.
EXACTLY. You are 1000% correct.
Is O’Mara any good?
And what would God say about her calling race baiters and copyrighting her son’s name for fun and profit, but mostly profit?
I hate to see this especially of a mother that just lost a son, but she’s starting to become like Cindy Sheehan. The haters are using her to exploit her son’s death for the benefit of the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al “Not a Real Reverend” Sharpton. It’s becoming totally disgusting.
