Trayvon Martin’s mother: ‘I just don’t believe’ Zimmerman’s apology
Reacting to an interview George Zimmerman gave to Fox News Republican opinion host Sean Hannity, the mother of Trayvon Martin said that she simply does not believe his apology was sincere, given that he also professed to have no regrets about what he viewed as “God’s plan” for Martin to die.
“I simply don’t know what God enjoys Zimmerman’s worshiping, because there’s no way that the God that I serve had in his plans for George Zimmerman to murder my son,” Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father, told “CBS This Morning.”
Sybrina Fulton, Martin’s mother, said that hearing Zimmerman claim to pray for them daily makes her feel “sad, because I just don’t believe what he says. It hurts a great deal… I have a hard time accepting it because he also said that he doesn’t regret anything he did that night. I don’t think God would have him, in his plan, to murder and innocent child.”
Zimmerman was released from a Florida jail earlier this month after posting a $1 million bond.
