Trayvon Martin's Mother Devastated to Hear Zimmerman Juror Say 'We Felt He Was Guilty'
Yahoo! News / ABC News ^ | July 26, 2013 | Alyssa Newcomb

Posted on 07/26/2013 7:13:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, said it was "devastating" to hear a juror tell ABC News in an exclusive interview that the jury in the George Zimmerman case thought the former neighborhood watchman was guilty and "got away with murder."

"It is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror B29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true. That George Zimmerman literally got away with murder," Fulton said in a statement released Thursday through The Trayvon Martin Foundation. "This new information challenges our nation once again to do everything we can to make sure that this never happens to another child.

"That's why Tracy [Martin] and I have launched The Trayvon Martin Foundation to try and take something very painful and negative and turn it into something positive as a legacy to our son," Fulton added.

At the National Urban League's annual conference today in Philadelphia, Fulton asked people to "wrap your mind around what has happened."

"No prom for Trayvon. No high school graduation for Trayvon. No college for Trayvon. No grandkids coming from Trayvon," she said. "All because of a law, a law that has prevented the person who shot and killed my son to be held accountable and to pay for this awful crime."(continued)

Hopefully this will [sniff, sniff] make it easier to sue that evil white Hispanic [blows nose] in civil court for a big payday.

Trayvon's mom...

I'm really saddened to hear that jurror thought he was guilty.
I'm really saddened to know she didn't think there should have been a trial.
I'm really saddened to know she didn't think there was any evidence to prove guilg.
I'm really saddened...

I take it she's really really really sad.

I'm not happy she's got a dead kid, but geez lady, you should have taught him not to bang people's head into the cement, don't sha think?

This is why I got rid of TV in 1997. I was actually telling my wife earlier today that this is the exact kind of thing I experienced daily with the 6:00 news.

I’m a much happier person now, though occasionally a story like this one breaks through the firewall. ;-)

Good grief...When is all of this Martin/Zimmerman garbage going to dry up and blow away.
One would think this is a war, assassination, or crime of the century.
It should never have made it beyond page 2 of the local paper.

Nope. She said she “felt” he was guilty but there was no evidence to support it. If you read what she actually said, she contradicted herself.

When I heard Fulton say she had business cards made up with Trayvon’s picture on them, I felt a certain sickness inside.

Kelly Hunnewell was unarmed, but the police said, “she stood her ground. Yet she was cornered and shot to death by three black “youths” wearing hoodies. No matter what is said, it was a hate crime. She had four children. She will never see them married, graduate, hold her grandchildren. Her children will be raised without a mother. So STFU Trayvon’s mother. You caused this murder with your racist message and desire for revenge.

"That's why Tracy [Martin] and I have launched The Trayvon Martin Foundation to try and take something very painful and negative and turn it into something positive as a legacy to our son," Fulton added.

My fellow FReepers, I hope you'll at least think about supporting the new Trayvon Martin Foundation: the Pound People's Faces and Heads Unlimited Fund.

Fulton and Martin's mom are hoping to raise awareness of the slice of our society that likes to break other people's nose and crack their head wide open on the cement.

Reached for comment later, Mrs. Martin stated that she hadn't known just how prejudiced most people are agains this segment of our society.  "If I can make it so future people can come along and break noses and crack heads open on the cement without being shot dead, I will have made some small recompense for my son Trayvon."

Satire over...

Sadly, the reality isn't.

Six jurors in Florida have their heads bowed shaking them back and forth as I write.

Well with a lady judge and 6 lady jurors he got let off. The ladies of the jury did their civic duty and the most one can complain about is that her “intuition” said Z had done wrong but there wasn’t enough proof to back up such a notion. But again she seemed to use murder to mean any fighting death she wished hadn’t happened.

This juror is a total idiot. She felt he was guilty but couldn’t vote “Guilty” because the evidence didn’t show he was guilty.

(Cue the Aflac duck) WHAT!?!?!?!?!

Well, if the evidence didn’t show he was guilty, why do you think he is guilty?

Total moron.

The problem is that with men, this may have been a bit more cut and dried.

He**, with ADULTS this would have been more cut and dried. Imagine a male juror going on the talk show circuit and saying “What the he** was this doing in a court room? All the evidence - ALL OF IT - Pointed to self defence. SH**, the kid was beating the crap out of him when he got shot. End of story.

It’s all good, Sybrina. Your dear son was mugging and trying to murder what he thought was a white man. So you see, your little one was legally, justifiably and appropriately dispatched because of his own actions.

Maybe you just didn’t have the time to teach him that beating an innocent man to death was a big no-no.

Anyway, calm down mama, that thing you raised is in timeout now and he won’t embarrass you ever again. Heck, at least your baby didn’t end up in prison.

It certainly would've been cut and dried with me.

1. Kid was beating the crap out of Zimmerman. That's obvious.

2. Zimmerman said he didn't start the fight, but Martin attacked him. And he said it into a lie detector test, and passed.

3. Eyewitness confirmed Martin was on top of Zimmerman raining blows down on him.

4. A grand parade of witnesses brought by the prosecution failed to produce any evidence at all to indicate that Zimmerman was the aggressor.

Forget "reasonable doubt" here. I'm looking for ONE SINGLE SHRED OF EVIDENCE that he was the aggressor.

Didn't exist.

Self defense.

And what the F WAS this case in the first place? State should reimburse Zimmerman for his legal fees in a frivolous prosecution and apologize to the defendant, the jury and the world for wasting our ******* time.

Next case.

This is the latest from Trayvon Martin’s biological mother, not the step mother that raised Trayvon, and not from Trayvon’s father’s present girlfriend.

“That’s why Tracy [Martin] and I have launched The Trayvon Martin Foundation to try and take something very painful and negative and turn it into something positive as a legacy to our son,” Mrs.Fulton added.”

[And this non profit foundation will have only two employees on the payroll: Trayvon’s father and me. There need not be any other expenses.] /sarc

Yep, GZ dodged a bullet, although I have my doubts whether
Florida would have had another crack at him had it wound up a hung jury.

As I said yesterday the Foreperson was a Saint working the deliberation room with crackpot low info Obama voters like this tool.

I guess I see this in a different light. I am glad this thug is dead. I am glad the laws of the state of Florida allowed this innocent Neighborhood Watch Captain to carry a gun.

Contrary to what these people say, the laws of Florida allowed him to defend himself against a younger, more physically fit, violent thug with murder in his heart.

My only concern is that he waited as long as he did. He should have shot the bastard sooner. When more people start killing scum like St Skittles, some modicum of civilization will return to this country.
