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."
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.

The New BlacKKK Pampers told her to get her act together.
Flip-flop waffle-stop.....hey it rhymes.
She must have gotten a call from Jesse or Rev. Al.
“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.”
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.”
Looks like the grieving mother got taken to the woodshed...
If this isn’t proof that this is all about race baiting and potential loot, I don’t know what is...
can we learn what education Ms.Fulton has earned???
does she have a job...meaning does she work???
does she pay taxes or does she get the FREE STUFF Hussein hands out???
lets learn some of the background on this bunch...
trying to untaint a jury pool is like trying to take pee out of a swimming pool...
she let the truth slip out and jepordized her big pay day!
now she’s backpeddling ASAP so she can still maybe get her big check from the HOA.
“We believe that George Zimmerman stalked my son and murdered him in cold blood.”
Shred, speck, particle or otherwise?
Would you “believe” this if George’s name was Quantrelle?
What has been said cannot be unsaid.
She was struck with brief bout of honesty.
Lawyers got to her. Bloodsucking troglodytes.
She must have received a call from Eric Holder because accidents aren’t reason enough to fuel a race war
It’s all about a civil suit now....
Amazing how many people in the lynch mob claim to know exactly what happened, despite not being there.
