Martin's parents have 'heavy heart' after release
Associated Press ^ | April 23, 2012

Posted on 04/23/2012 11:12:20 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

ORLANDO -- Trayvon Martin's parents have a `heavy heart' now that neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman has been released from a Florida jail on bail as he awaits his second-degree murder trial.

Attorney Benjamin Crump represents Martin's parents. Crump said Monday that they would rather have seen Zimmerman stay in jail until he is tried for killing their 17-year-old son during a Feb. 26 confrontation at a gated community.

He’s not “released.” What IS wrong with these people? Bail doesn’t mean he’s not going to have a trial. Unless the Martin family is concerned for George Zimmerman’s safety...they are concerned for his safety, right? /sarc

Their son is dead and they need to look for someone to blame. They, like most parents, are unwilling to face the prospect that the sweet little child they remember could possibly have had anything to do with his own demise.

The parents are seperated but the images show them together.

They know their child.

They know their child made a stupid “tough guy” manuver.

Their lawyers are guarding them for the “exclusive interview rights” and for a civil pay off.

They did lose their son it’s always tough to see wrong in the ones you love and have loved let’s not be too harsh on them. It’s a reasonably sad situation with no real bad guys or heroes in this one in my opinion. Both Zimmerman and Martin acted stupidly. Zimmerman should have let the police handle it and not confronted Martin and Martin once he got the upper hand should not have bashed Zimmermans head in the ground since that alone could cause death and opens the door to use lethal force to defend oneself.

Maybe so, but I bet they aren’t light in the wallet after trademarking Trayvon. Probably get royalties off of Wyclef Jean as well.

And lets not forget the P!@$%y !#s Cracka shirts...

Think of it as a lottery ticket they own together.

They figure they have to get along just long enough to cash it in.

First we have all the brouhaha because they were pissed he wasn’t arrrested.

Now he has been arrested, charged, and given bail pending a trial. He was treated as everyone else is in a similar situation.

The law has done their job and they are still griping.

And if the outcome of the trial isn’t as they want it to be, what then?

They live in a world the MSM and elite liberals have created for them - a world where the rule of law doesn't matter, where truth doesn't matter, where justice doesn't matter. All that matters in La La Land is that blacks are eternal victims and ONLY their 'feelings' and the 'feelings' of elite liberals matter.

I think that one of the things that the prosecution must prove is that Zimmerman “confronted” Martin, rather than the other way around.

If it weren’t for the cops having a file on this punk. He would still be laying in the morgue . As it was it took a full day after these “distraught parents” were notified that one of showed up to make positive identification of the body.

If any violence occurs because of the MSM inflamatory reporting I hope they don’t escape the bad stuff and also get showered with disgust (figureatively speaking) on their personagas and offices.

A young man is out on a cold (for Florida), rainy night at 3 am. A story says he went to a 7-11 type market for skittles, when apparently there were none in the house and said market is miles (3 to 5 miles) away.

Get it right. The incident happened at about 1917. Sunset was 1823, and civil twilight ended at 1846. It was cool and rainy. The 7-Eleven was about 0.9 miles away, an 18 minute walk. Reportedly, he was recorded on the store's video surveillance.

The denial goes futher than their sweet little child. It is their OWN guilt for not being there for their child. Not setting limits. Not spending time with him, listening, helping him with the temptations of life.

Well, like Sybrina said, it WAS an accident, so maybe she can find it in her heart to forgive George for protecting himself after her son was bashing George’s head into the concrete sidewalk.

These people need to accept at some point that their son was a menace to society, and hearbreaking as it may for them, - - the world is now one thug safer . . .

I have a “heavy heart” because the Martins were not better parents.

I find it hard to be anywhere near compassionate for these folks...not after the demonization done in their name.

Zimmerman can’t show himself because of the frenzy these overwrought crazies have engendered. And the Martins are complicit in that: they certainly have made no moves or motions to quell it.

Maybe if something happens to Zimmerman, they should be held to account.

I have not been following the case closely because I was not there and do not live there. Exception: the race element.

This is interesting. Roughly seven pm.

I regularly ask people that I don't recognize in the neighborhood who they are and what they are doing. I've never had my head beaten on the concrete for it.

Would you please remove my post #17? I really, really have the facts of this case wrong. It is odd, though, as I would have picked up that info from scanning through the various articles I’ve seen on it. I haven’t paid close attention to the facts of the case except for the incitement to violence/race element.

Thank you.

Apologies to the forum.

I don't think that who confronted whom has been established.
