SANFORD, Fla. - The family of Trayvon Martin will sit in the same courtroom on Friday as George Zimmerman, the man who shot and killed their son, for the first time.
Benjamin Crump said the Martin family is attending the hearing at the request of special prosecutor Angela Corey. Crump said the family is bracing themselves to be the same room with Zimmerman and will be hoping he doesn't get bond.
Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, said Zimmerman would like to meet with the Martin family.
"There's no reason not to have a conversation," O'Mara said Thursday. "It should be personal, it should be private."
Crump said the Martin family has considered Zimmerman's proposals to meet, but have said no.
"The meeting is not appropriate right now," Crump said. "We think that it's self-serving right now to say 'I want to apologize the day before my bond hearing.'"

Zimmerman’s attorney was playing a poor gambit.
Well that’s mighty white of them
Couldn’t disagree more. Them turning him down is the best thing for Zimmerman.
I saw a brief shot on TV this afternoon of Zimmerman in handcuffs.
Seeing that caused a burning anger to arise in my body. I literally could feel it.
That innocent man being imprisoned by the scum of the earth media and the even sorrier politicians who don’t have the moral backbone to stand up to them.
“The meeting is not appropriate right now,” Crump said. “We think that it’s self-serving right now to say ‘I want to apologize the day before my bond hearing.’”
Who said he wanted to apologize? Maybe he wanted to explain.
Are they going to sit in the pitchforks and torches section, or the rope and kerosene section?
The wording used by Crump shows bad faith, which is all we can expect from the opposition.
Zimmerman has been made a symbol by the left.
The bolded words are so obviously biased that it's nauseating.
In an article I read here earlier Crump said the incident is Zimmerman’s fault even if Martin hit him first.
That in fact is a much more accurate statement of the facts as they are known.
Angela Corey is a coward.
I know, it’s insane. Even if one tries to be absolutely absurdly biased in the other direction, one steers much closer to the truth, if not directly into it, than the race inciters involed with and reporting on this situation.
I’ve no sympathy for the Martins in this matter at all, not one iota. My sympathy lies with the victim of Martin, the media, Obama, and Angela Corey, that being George Zimmerman.
Who’s the target audience for that little bit a theater? Was he hoping to sway the judge or prosecutor, maybe impress gullible potential jurors?
On the other hand, had they agreed it could have turned into “bereaved family tormented by son’s killer” headlines, or they could have even attacked him. Just bad karma.
...and what happened to the the ‘allegedly’? I thought all suspects got that until they were judged ‘guilty”!
Headlines should be changed to read, “Security guard denied meeting with his assailant’s relatives who seek to deprive him of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.”
Zimmerman has been judged guilty, just not by a judge or jury.
You are right.
Even the Fort Hood shooter still gets “allegedly”.
