Trayvon Martins mother Sybrina Fulton told the TODAY show Thursday that she believes her sons 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 couldnt turn the clock back," she said.

He couldn’t turn the Glock back, actually.
Not making any money on her copyright?
Now the bucks can start flowing.
Special DA had a talk with her about the case ( lack there of one).
Actually, it was a Kel-Tec, but that works, I like it.
I’m thinking the parents are finding out what really happened are changing their tune. A little late, after releasing the race baiting, whitey hating, hounds.
Just yesterday I read where she called it “murder!” What has changed her mind now?
Hey, if she is starting to walk it back to the truth, DON’T MAKE MATTERS WORSE.
A man’s freedom is at stake.
Such a wonderful legacy.
I believe a deal has been worked out between the Martin family, the prosecutor and Z. Have you noticed that the mother has recently said, that what she really wanted was an arrest of Z... not that she was pushing for a guilty verdict regardless of guilt. They all know now what went down, and they all know the propensity of T pushing the envelope, testing out his growing taste for thuggish behavior in newly actualized adult, brutish body.
Z likely is remorseful, and wishes things had not gone down the way they did, but still, he is left with the proposition, that it was either himself or T that would die that night, and justifiable homicide is everybody's conclusion. T's family knows, they knew the path he was choosing, they knew if he didn't get back to the straight and narrow, he would either wind up dead or going to jail for killing someone, they knew.
The story is indeed tragic.
She just handed the defense a HUGE gift.Don’t know whether she realizes that or not.For that matter I don’t know if she might have *intended* to that.A tape of that comment will be played by the defense in their closing argument.In fact,it could even cause the prosecutor to refrain from bring this to trial.It’s *that* big.
I never knew skittles were s street name for drugs. Thanks...because I'll listen for it among the kids I know. (My grandchildren)
I shot a Kel-Tec pistol that fired a 5.56 round. Can’t remember the model name, but damn, what a loud gun.
So, now that the state has brought 2nd degree murder charges, it was all an accident.
I don’t know who looks more stupid here. The race baiters or the state, who brought these charges out of fear of the race baiters.
What a mess. I suppose the charges should now be dropped. Maybe they will be.
I blame the racism on the President. Not on this aggrieved mother. Wasn’t she the one who thought her son was suspended for tardiness? Then she, as well as everybody else in the world, found out that the 17 year old was getting into things he should not have been getting into. Who knows, if he hadn’t been killed, whether he would have continued on that path, or turned things around? In the meanwhile, the undated family photo shows what looks to be a 14 year old with so much potential. Regardless of the outcome of the criminal proceeding, we who are Christians hope that this mother and her son will be reunited in heaven.
Al Sharpton and his goons have been fanning the flames not so much the family, although they have let it happen. It would be wise for them to distance themselves from Sharpton who is solely out to use their sons death for political and personal gain.
Yep, the money train begins to roll, this gal will win the Oscar for 2012's best actress.

I see the same truth in the matter. As a teacher, I see that most parents aren’t aware of their child’s behavior until issues arise at school. This 17 year old thug is like a lot of the thugs in my school - brazenly cocky, but at the first sign of trouble they turn dewy eyed and willowy.
