Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, said it was “devastating” to hear ajuror tell ABC News in an exclusive interview that the jury in the George Zimmerman case thought the former neighborhood watchman was guilty and “got away with murder.”
“It is devastating for my family to hear the comments from juror B29, comments which we already knew in our hearts to be true,” Fulton said in a statement released Thursday through The Trayvon Martin Foundation. ” 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 [Martin] 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,” Fulton added.
Fulton’s comments came hours after juror B29 emerged from the shadows and told “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts Thursday she believes she owes Martin’s parents an apology because she feels “like I let them down.”
