Trayvon Martin’s Parents Call Juror B29 Comments ‘Devastating’
The parents of the late Trayvon Martin has responded to the widely-reported revelations from Juror B29.
In an interview with Good Morning America, B29 – the only minority juror on the George Zimmerman trial – proclaimed that George Zimmerman “got away with murder,” and that she owes an apology to Trayvon Martin’s family.
Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton issued the following statement Thursday night on behalf of herself and Tracy Martin:
It is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror B29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true. That George Zimmerman literally got away with murder.
This new information challenges our nation once again to do everything we can to make sure that this never happens to another child. That’s why Tracy and I have launched The Trayvon Martin Foundation to try and take something very painful and negative and turn it into something positive as a legacy to our son.
