The parents of Trayvon Martin were not moved by George Zimmerman'sfirst television interview which aired on Fox News Wednesday (July 18). While Zimmerman offered an apology to Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, they did not feel that their son's accused killers offered any real remorse.
Among the many comments that they took issue with was Zimmerman's revelation that the events that transpired on the night of Feb. 26. were part of “God's plan.” Appearing on NBC's Today show with their lawyer, Benjamin Crump, Thursday (July 19) morning, the Martin family expressed their unhappiness with the accused killer's remarks. “I really think that's ridiculous” Futlon said of Zimmerman's speech about God. “I wish Trayvon was here to tell his side of the story, and I don't believe that's God's plan, for him to kill an innocent teenager.”
During the hour-long sit down, Zimmerman cleared up what he saw as misconceptions about what transpired that night, as well as his damaged public image. He told Fox News reporter Shawn Hannity that he would like to meet the teen's parents on day, a request which was shot down by Fulton. “Absolutely not,” she said when asked if she would be willing to have a face-to-face encounter with the former neighborhood watch captain.
