Skip to comments.Zimmerman to face judge; Trayvon's mom says 'shooting was accident'
Posted on 04/12/2012 5:48:37 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
George Zimmerman woke up in a Seminole County jail cell this morning as the mother of Trayvon Martin, the teen he killed, revealed on national television that she thinks the shooting was an accident.
Asked what she would like to ask to Zimmerman, Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, told The Today Show that she wants an apology from him.
"I believe it was an accident. I believe it just got out of control and he couldn't turn the clock back," Fulton said, revealing her opinion on what happened the night her 17-year-old son was shot to death. "I would ask him, did he know that that was a minor, that that was a teenager and that he did not have a weapon."

They have insurance. Probably a minimum one million dollars.
We will know eventually because NBC is most likely going to be named in a defamation suit.
And all of his school suspensions will be included in court testimony. Will be interesting to see what you have to do to get a ten day suspension.
Trayvon’s mom had no problem jacking up the race hate sails but now that she has gotten her way and Zimmerman is arrested, she is suddenly not a race hater anymore.
There is a lot of innocent blood on the klan with a tan’s hands from the White hut on down. Trayvons, people who could be Obama’s sons, all across the country heard the call of the African wild to get whitey, and have acted upon it.
This whole hooded klan event has back fired on the race hustlers. The git-Zimmerman racist display, threats and blood sacrifices of lynched whites was a means to an end of banning self defense laws in the US. But all Obammy’s chickens came home to roost for this race hate event and everyone heard Holder’s silence in the face of the Nation of Islam’s bounty on Zimmerman’s “white” head.
What a show of Obama’s true face. Many Black celebraties have shown the true colors of their characters, too. Never forget.
When I was about 22, I got attacked by about 7 gang members ranging in age from 13 to 18. I was next to a busy road and I remember I was trying to throw these thugs in front of the fast moving cars.
Panic and survival was the only thing on my mind. I doubt much else was going on in Z’s mind either as his head was getting bashed.
He was a volunteer and not an employee. Therefore there is no respondeat superior liability unless Zimmerman was not only "on duty" but was acting within the course and scope of his duties as a volunteer. If he killed Martin through some personal motive (as the murder charge would suggest) then there would be no liability on the part of the HOA. They need to prove that this was an accident that occurred while the volunteer was working and that his actions were not criminal.
Bs mom. He had two weapons called fists.
Good point and conversely if he said ‘it wasn’t’ an accident...
Can charges be upgraded?
Trayvon “accidentally” jumped a guy who was armed.
Moral: Never bring a hoodie to a gunfight.
Hey, long time, no see. I hope all is well.
Case in point: Why did it take 3 days to ID Martin?
Now the parents have the nerve to blame cops re: phone; Hello, that was evidence. Who here wouldn’t have heard of a shooting in a neighborhood re: his father, by word of mouth? Especially if he was ‘expecting him’or if he ‘lived there’ with the dad. They let him run wild and had no clue where he was or what he was doing.
I want to know WHEN and WHY the mom put out the missing persons report (please send doc to me if found). If he lived with sad and not mom, why did she and not he file it? Was he to arrive at dad’s and hung out for days before going? Where was he, with whom, doing what?
It’s obvious his wanna-be gang-banging friends didn’t go after Zimmerman, maybe because they thought he went out fighting for his, hence got shot.
I still haven’t found the grave stone or site the kid’s buried at. I saw the service obit from the church though.
I’m waiting for someone to ask, though it may be painful, what kind of parents were they and maybe if they weren’t so caught up in selfishness and paid attention, would this not have happened.
It was their job to know where their kid was and what he was doing.
As far as BPP Michelle Williams and her racist white slurs... As a black woman, I flip their nonsense back on her; Since she says her grandpa was white, maybe SHE isn’t qualified to speak for blacks (flip the one drop theory, use it for Obama as well). You’ve got to get up in their face on this; Show them they look like idiots for following and ignoring facts and common sense. The reason there’s any uproar period, is because it’s RARE. Blacks kill blacks and whites several times a day, they’re not addressing that, why not? Police your own house first. Talk to the ‘non-parents who think the state should raise their kids, and pay for them. Tell them to close their legs, get an education and be responsible, even if their ‘parents’ aren’t. Anytime Cosby or anyone else speaks the truth, they shout them down. It’s truth time people... and color be damned.
No slave aster whipped them and Africa is a plane ride away.
They need to look at their communities and ask some real questions. It’s nobody’s fault but your own. Change it.
Then... the Martin parents could sue the HOA for an 'accidental death'.
It didn't. Tracy ID's Trayvon the next day, surely less than 24 hours after the shooting.
Missing persons report went out the next day, that's what prompted the authorities to contact Tracy and show hi a photo of Trayvon.
Agreed he was allowed to run wild.
DeeDee, his "girlfriend," didn't attend the funeral. I think she heard things and is stuck with keeping the truth to herself.
Thanks for the shout out!
if they bring a hoodie
we bring a gun
"No, I didn't have time to ask him for his ID, nor search him as he was beating me to death."
What? You dont want to go to court to try to get your justice from this racist KKK Gestapo Grand Wizard?
Why do you think Mom sent Trayvon to go live at Dad's new fiance's place?
Yes this does seem to be a shake-down propelled by the threat of unending racial strife. It will be repeated elsewhere, whether it works in this case or not.
SO.... if it had been a ‘black’ neighborhood watch captain, and a Hispanic ‘hoodlum’, would the ‘black’ guy have been arrested?
