Trayvon Martin's mom retracts 'accident' (comment), says Zimmerman killed him in 'cold blood'

Full headline: Update: Trayvon Martin's mom retracts 'accident' characterization, says Zimmerman killed him in 'cold blood'

Updated at 1:15 p.m. ET: Trayvon Martin's mother retracted her comments that she believes her son's fatal shooting by George Zimmerman was an accident, telling MSNBC-TV on Thursday afternoon that she actually believes "George Zimmerman stalked my son and murdered him in cold blood."

In an interview Thursday morning on NBC's TODAY show, Sybrina Fulton had said: "I believe it was an accident. I believe that it just got out of control and he couldn't turn the clock back."

After Fulton's remarks drew widespread media attention, Ryan Julison, a spokesman for the Martin family, emailed a statement to MSNBC TV saying her comments had been "mischaracterized."

SNIP

Here's the full statement:

Earlier today, I made a comment to the media that was later mischaracterized. When I referenced the word 'accident' today with regard to Trayvon's death, in NO way did I mean the shooting was an accident.

We believe that George Zimmerman stalked my son and murdered him in cold blood. The 'accident' I was referring to was the fact that George Zimmerman and my son ever crossed paths. It was an accidental encounter. If George Zimmerman hadn't gotten out of his vehicle, this entire incident would have been avoided.

My son was profiled, followed and murdered by George Zimmerman, and there was nothing accidental about that.

Too late for Mama Trayvon. What has been said, cannot be unsaid—at least in situations like this.

I hope her words are able to play a part in the Zimmerman defense.

Pretty hard to reconcile those clearly opposing statements. The Defense thanks you Ms Fulton.

I’m sure Zimmermans blood did run cold as he was on the ground getting his head slammed into the ground and fighting for his life.

Such nonsense. “It just got out of control” is absolutely not the same thing as “it was an accidental encounter.”

Evidence?

Shred, speck, particle or otherwise?

She thought her dead son would be ticket to the East Side.

Only problem is, she had to invite a bunch of other folks to the trough cause she doesn't have the first idea how to make it happen on her own.

Now those little piggies have a vested interest in keeping the circus going while the pockets get picked. They told her what was what, and now she's trying to change her tune.

She'll probably get away with it too. You can "walk it back" if you've got the MSM cheering for you.

Someone has leaned heavily on Tray-von’s mama. No doubt one of the race pimps like Sharpton or Jackson or one or more of the Blackkk Panthers.

We know what Tray-von thought of women. He says, on his video, that ‘Bitches ain’t shi-!’

This woman is truly despicable. She calls it an “accident” one minute, then claims her thug son was “stalked” and “murdered in cold blood”.

She has fanned racial hatred by claiming “THEY (not “He”) killed my son!”

She has filed for trademarks on the phrases “Justice for Trayvon” and “I am Trayvon Martin” so she can profit off the death of her son.

His father told the police that the cries for help on the 911 tapes were NOT his son’s, then told the media and the racist, lynch mobs that it was his son, “crying for his life”.

Seeing the behavior of his mother and father, I am beginning to have more sympathy for Trayvon. He is, of course, responsible for his own choices and actions, but with “parents” like those, he had little chance of growing into a responsible, decent man. He would have had a better shot if he was raised by wolves or alligators.

“If George Zimmerman hadn’t gotten out of his vehicle, this entire incident would have been avoided.”

What about if Trayvon was not a thug like character who didn’t like anyone even looking him, and did not attack Zimmerman the whole thing would have been avoided..

So what he may have followed him, and who cares why..it used to be a free country to walk around as you please..
No instead its the same old tired BS everything that happens is whiteys fault mentality which have kept blacks in slavery to their black keepers for hundreds of years..stand up, take responsibility..

It would sure be interesting to see how many black “kids” have been murdered by other black “kids” since o’l Trayvons passing. Where is the outrage? I'm ready for the race war to just go ahead and start so we can get it over with and get on with our lives. Enough already, geez. I've got all the ammo I need now, get yours too because these thugs across the country are attacking whites at an alarming rate and the masses don't even know about it. Coming this summer to a city near you. Lock and load folks.

I cannot remember the name of the officer off the top of my head,but he was mudered in St.Pete,Fl. last year by a black kid. The officer was white.

The boy’s family said “Oh,it was an accident! He was scared! He didn’t know what to do!”

Give me a f**king break! The teenager knew full well what he was doing.

Now if the roles were reversed and it was a white kid who shot a black cop all hell would break loose and the entire city of St.Petersburg would have been turned upside-down.

Obama’s campaign probably instigated the local “civil rights” leaders to get Trayvon’s mom back “on message”. Obama has a lot invested in fanning this racial tension.

Of course. George Zimmerman may end up serving a prison sentence, even though an eyewitness saw Trayvon on top of him pummeling him before the shot was fired, in order to uphold a fiction.

This case is about the national media and liberals protecting the black community from having to acknowledge the dysfunction and failure among a large percentage of black families.

The specific fiction in the Zimmerman case is that it is NOT possible that Trayvon swing at Zimmerman first and then jumped on him and beat him. That possibility CANNOT be acknowledged out loud.

If that possibility is even allowed to be considered, then that opens up the question of whether Zimmerman really was defending himself.

And if Zimmerman really was defending himself, then this was just another one of a million instances of a young black man perpetrating violence.

As far as the MSM and the political elite are concerned, the public must NOT learn about Trayvon the No_Limit_N*gga with his gold teeth and tattoos and vile and violent tweetings and drugs and school suspension and so on.

None of that is relevant to the case, the MSM and the elite claim.

Nor is it relevant that 80+% of underclass blacks are born out of wedlock to mothers who are turned into basically government employees whose job it is to get pregnant by random men and raise their children on other people's money, with a large percentage of such children never being socialized into society.

That fact is not relevant, they say, to criminality and unemployability and hatred and bitterness and government dependency.

The source of these problems is always "racism," they say.

The ugly truth is that the source of these problems are moral failure and generations of liberal policies. If the American people at large ever came to understand this, then the consequences for the liberal elites and the future of the progressive movement would become rather bleak.
