Trayvon Martins mother Sybrina Fulton told the TODAY show Thursday that she believes her sons fatal shooting by George Zimmerman was an accident.
I believe it was an accident, I believe that it just got out of control and he couldnt turn the clock back," she said.

a very apt analysis.
I could only stomach just so much of the news conference after the prosecutor referred to the parents as "sweet" and that as prosecutor she just wanted "justice for Trayvon."
One sad consequence of this thing is that riots ensue, more black people will be killed by other black people.
Chicago homicides soar in first quarter of 2012
You got that right!!
Jackson, Sharpton, and Obama don't care how many black people are killed, as long as they can hold onto their power and wealth.
Why would Zim apologize to the Martin’s? If his story is true then he was viciously attacked and Trayvon attempted to murder him. In such a case, the Martin’s should apologize to Zim for their thug son’s behavior.
Not so fast there. Zimmerman will move for dismissal based on having statutory immunity. Corey or whoever she punts this to will have to produce evidence and argument that establish it is more likely than not, that Zimmerman did NOT act is reasonable fear of death or serious injury.
I agree with your post 100%. It is just not our way to charge someone with a crime for the purpose you described.
If ‘dad’ had stayed home that night and kept an eye on Trayvon, Trayvon wouldn’t be dead.
I have seen a few pics of him and his parents. But they show a 6 foot tall 160 pound Trayvon, not a 5 foot tall skinny 13 year old Trayvon, so they have been suppressed or removed from the airwaves.....
I saw Zimm’s younger bro on TV this morning. He looks just like him................
I thought it was unusual she asked everyone to pray for the Martin Family. Sure they had a terrible loss, but thought that was out of place considering the purpose of the press conference and showed her lack of independence in 'getting to the truth' (her words).
Whether parents are sweet or not has no bearing on a case.. Jeffrey Dahmer had sweet parents, too.
I don't believe this because it requires the existence of good will on the part of the parents.
he's so immune because of the "stand your ground:" law, I don't see how the prosecutor gets around it.
The apology, warranted or not, would be to appease the Martins, and to put the whole case behind all of them.
Perhaps she is trying to deal with her son’s death without bitterness, and move on. Hope so for her sake. A cynic might think that the Homeowner Association’s insurance policy covers accidents but not willfull misconduct and unlawful acts.
Read that they did the GMA interview from Washington DC.. wonder why they are in DC?
I am not operating out of the assumption of anything.
I don’t know what evidence the prosection has. Nobody does but Zimmerman’s defense.
But if the mother of Trayvon believes it was an accident, she may know more than we do.
You have to admit that now Trayvon’s mother believes it to be a tragic accident, it makes the charges look more suspect.
